I’m having a very sharp tooth pain!! Hot or cold, lukewarm or not…it’s like being stabbed with an icepick in my gum. Have I mentioned I HATE the dentist? Here’s part of the reason why:
And people are still arguing against national health care?? What if I did not have insurance?? This was for two small fillings and one filling replacement. And this does not note that they gave me nitrous gas for free (though I think they did that for their own safety – I’m what you would call a high-anxiety dental patient).
The Office is the funniest show in the entire world!!! It really is. I’m not a
huge fan of the british version-I got the dvd of it and could not make it
through one episode. British humor just doesn’t appeal to me. My son and I
regularly decide which character are friends are. Sometimes we have to combine
characters – so we would say someone is Pelly, a combo of Pam and Kelly, or
Jandy-a combo of Jim and Andy. It’s a good show to do it with…we tried Friends,
but their characters aren’t as solid or unique.
Someone came to my volunteer event last month and donated these:
That’s a LOT of stamps!! People are so generous with their donations. I started the Love Letters projects almost 4 yrs ago and had a small paper box of supplies given to me to start with. Since then, I now have collected donations and gathered supplies and have about 8 good-sized boxes of supplies. About 90% of which was donated! People are great sometimes!!
Andrews cat Whiskers is the cutest pest ever. He insists on drinking from a steady flow of water. We bought a small $5 water fountain for him, which he has used about twice. Otherwise, he will cry and cry until you turn on the faucet for him. And if I’m in the bathroom doing anything at all, he is here:
The fountain is the brown thing to the right. The Scooby Doo cup that it looks like he is hugging is an alternate cat water "bowl" because we don't always remember to clean/fill the regular cat water bowl by their food. The Scooby cub is a perfect height for them and it's easy for me to fill up each day and ensure they have fresh water (and it's funny that the cats drink from a cup featuring a dog).
Does anyone have a ton of episodes of This American Life? I really love this show, but I don’t usually have the radio on when it’s on and I always forget to go download the podcast. I love this show. You can listen to the archives online, but you can only download the current week’s episode. I have a bunch from last year when I remembered to download each week – I’ll trade you what I have for what you have!!
I’m reading a book by John Stossel. If you aren’t aware of him – you are missing out. He is the “Give Me A Break” guy who does reports on stuff put into the media that becomes mainstream knowledge but which isn’t necessarily fact-based. And it has a lot of information on money the government wastes. And laws that are pushed through for bad reasoning. It’s interesting. He is really asking you to question what you read in the media – and it really makes me question what he is telling me in his book!!
