So I was all excited about Friday's DBFest shit - first Biosphere/ambient show, then Shpongle. Unfortunately after having some Pho for lunch, and hot soup broth hitting my new filling, and the nerve going FUCKING BAM! I realized it wasn't going to happen.

I figured I could at least go to the ambient show at Broadway Performance Hall, except it was seriously late. I left after Biosphere for many reasons, not the least of which being it's the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE SEATED VENUE I've ever sat in. Granted my high school had a little money, the auditorium doubled as a movie theater, and my college "auditorium" (ie where we saw Squirrel Nut Zippers) was um, at Duke. Still. Nonetheless. I absolutely refused to go to the Saturday ambient event for this reason, and I swear to god unless say U2 plays there, I ain't goin' back.

But it didn't really matter since my tooth was flaring up, then aching after a flareup. I tried to get in touch with a couple people - since the few people I recognized at the BPH were giving me the cut direct - but they were having issues. So I just went to Dragonfish, had deep fried bacon and chicken satay, then bussed it home. NBD, watched Avengers again till Reg got home and passed out on the couch. That was really ok, I was worn out from Orbital on Thursday and wanted to save some energy for Saturday's show.

• For Xmas I got a bathrobe, a large-muffin muffin tin for cupcakes, chocolate, and a new wallet. Also, a trip to a cabin in Twisp. Pix of that later. I got Reg Inception and a laser that shoots a green and red light show, and it can be synced to music.

• Twisp was nice, we did jack shit mostly (and some things that won't be discussed in a public entry, or at all heh) but it was beautiful. Surrounded by mountains and snow. The only drawback was that the owners (private rental) were on a cruise, deleted my email with the dates, and double booked us. So we had to go back earlier than we'd hoped. Oh well.

• NYE, we went to [ profile] tyrven's party, as usual. It was rather low-key. Most everyone left at 1 to go to ZHouse, but we were feeling old, so we went home.

• Had a dental appointment at 7am and got two decayed-to-hell teeth yanked (back molars) and two others drilled and filled. I'm sure there's a dental porn titled that. Anyway they said to stay off my feet today, so I'm home.

Lousy delicious bluefin. I am totally going to eat toro tonight, man.

I'm recovering from yet another UW Dental School trip. This time they took the temporary filling out and put a permanent filling in. Next time I get MY CROWN. It is alas going to be a tooth-colored crown, not a gold one. I am white but not a hillbilly. Although I was wishing for a short time that I was a hillbilly; then I could have just have the goddamned tooth yanked in November. But now that I have actual dental insurance I guess I'll start going to the dentist like non-hillbilly white folk.

• So apparently I can't work on holidays. "Woo-hoo?"

• Reg and I watched Akira and Key Largo yesterday. I much preferred the latter. Can any of you anime geekoids explain to me wtf Akira was about? This is the second time I've seen it, and I didn't understand it either time.

• I look like I'm hiding gumballs in my cheek pouches instead of golf balls, but I'm still going to wear a kerchief for photos later.

- reg and I are sick
= went to dentist and confirmed that i will at some point soon make an appointment to rid myself of wisdom teeth
+ bought m83 tickets
lauralh: (cynical or sarcastic)
Reg assures me that having feelings like i'm going crazy is a sure sign that I'm not. I guess he knows!

Also I ate both of the hollow Godiva bunnies and i felt so fuckin' sick afterwards I couldn't work for an hour. And then it was time to go home.

I am thinking that i need a teething ring for when my jaw feels funny. It's analagous to being horny and wanting something to fill up the 'gina, I guess.

oh, ok

The day I went in to get my tooth fixed I didn't have but one Diet Coke, no coffee/tea or whatever, and then I woke up with a headache on the other side of my face. I was all "wtf" and went to work, still not drinking any caffeinated beverages b/c of the temperature sensitivity fear, and it just got worse and worse till I thought I was going to vomit. So I went home early and Reg gave me a Dr. Pepper and some advil and that seemed to actually help. This morning I woke up with the head still hurting a bit, jaw not even worth complaining over, and coffee has helped tremendously. So, I guess it's official: I'm addicted to caffeine.

I was all pissed off yesterday at the weekend trolls who ate my Thai food, but this morning I was looking for yogurt and, well wow, my Thai food magically reappeared. So, yeah, forget that. However, there was no yogurt, so I had to break into my secret oatmeal stash. I actually kind of like oatmeal, although my favorite kind has apples, cinnamon, sugar, and raisins. And doesn't exist except in my mom's kitchen.

Also I had a single tall gingerbread latte, which, trust me, is enough reason to forgive Starbucks for all its ubiquitousness. Or, as [ profile] hydrozoa put it, "reason to drink coffee." I hadn't had anything with caffeine in it since Friday, but since the weekend was a bit of a drug debauchery that doesn't really matter. I had no other caffeine and I felt fine, except I fell asleep around ten. But I did have Pho for dinner, which inevitably makes one drowsy, so perhaps it doesn't matter. I watched the first thirty minutes or so of The Guns of the Navarone (sp?) and woke up just as it was ending THREE HOURS LATER. Reg advised me to watch it during daylight hours - figuratively speaking of course - and we went to bed.

At that point I had a headache, but a mild one, and it was gone by the time I woke up for real. And then about twenty minutes ago I wasn't feeling tired but the slight headache began to return. I'm fearing it's now the other side of my head's wisdom teeth, and I think I'm just gonna have to suck it up and make an appt. at Harborview for, you know, a month from now. But then I had a caffeinated cola beverage and it went away.
lauralh: (the cheat is not dead)
So i got a piece of gauze soaked in clove oil STUFFED INTO my wound. You want me now, I know, I know. Anyway it feels better. I need caffeine soon though.
lauralh: (how miserable you are)
i think i have dry socket

i want to die

That wasn't even blinky. I mean, i didn't even realize it was happening. The guy's putting me in a wheelchair and I'm like "I did PAY TO GET A WISDOM TOOTH EXTRACTION." And Reg was like 'Yeah.... they did it.' So.... yay. i'm gonna be dopey for a while though.

I guess steve's tonsilectomy got me freaked out, but this was pretty much a fuckin' outpatient procedure.

and now for jello.

I got totally assraped at the dentist yesterday. Well, not really, just that my wisdom tooth is going -----> instead of you know, vertical like nice normal next-door teeth. Which I hadn't really grasped before. Anyway I got drugs but not very many.

I also got a parking ticket from a parking company which I'm totally not going to pay; I'm just never going to park in that lot again. I got it because I went to a store next door in addition to the store I parked at. The homeless guys out front told me. "Nice."

Anyway we went to EN for karaoke last night and I did "Sad Songs Say So Much", which I haven't actually heard in 4 years probably so I did ok. And also Reg and I duet-ed "DAMMIT JANET." Which rocked and made me want to do the time warp. Again.

Jaysus my fucking neck/shoulders/head hurt, I don't know why, unless it's from reading in bed at a weird angle. I was browsing in Border's after work Friday, and realized I could not recall if I'd read the last Robert Jordan or not. Well, I own it, so I must have read it, but I don't remember anything that happened.

Friday night we ran the 4*/duckie gauntlet, and fell asleep in his bed. Heh. But we woke up bright and early and headed to Cap Hill. We stopped at Laughing Buddha to get some jewelry, and the Tim Oliphant lookalike working there changed my lip piece and Reg's tongue stud. We then went into the S&M shop, looked for [ profile] barbaloot in the Book of Erotic Fantasy, and bought a few "things."

Next, coffee and books. I used the gift certificate that [ profile] sarahbliss had given me to pick a few things up, and then on a whim decided to hit the Metro. They were having a huge 50% off sale, so we just wasted a ton of time trying things on that didn't necessarily look so good. But some of it did. After that we headed north to Best Buy, and, then, home home home. Modeled clothing for each other, then Reg went home briefly. I fell asleep while reading Crossroads, and decided to stay in when he got back. So, we watched Kill Bill v1. I hadn't seen it yet, and I'm kind of 'meh' about it. Slick and glossy and pretty, but that's about it. Oh well, I'm sure it would have been more fun on a big screen.
