All Filled Up
As dental work goes, yesterday’s trip was relatively painless. I was prepped by a beautiful hygienist and the work was done by a beautiful dentist, both of whom at one time were hovering over me staring into my mouth. Hell, even the pain of paying the $215 for the visit was lessened by chatting with the beautiful receptionist. Sadly, I believe all three women are married. Oh well, trying to pick up women at a dental office is far more expensive than trying to do so at a bar… 😉
The tooth feels okay today. It never really hurt much to begin with, it just had developed some decay. I’m hoping that it continues to feel okay and that the dull pain in my cheek still lingering from the shots and work vanishes quickly. Hmmm, perhaps an Aleve for breakfast would help.

Hopefully the last time I’ll lean on Cheddarhead 2012 for a ITP Flickr Pic
This is the Cheddarhead Brain Trust (oxymoron much?), Public Enema (left, or in other words the guy wearing the bowling shirt with “Public Enema”) and Pantywaist (right).
Lavanderia y Biblíoteca
Tonight is laundry night. And tonight’s laundry night I will also be biblíoteca night as I attempt to make further progress in the Steve Jobs biography. Who knows, I might even treat myself to a taco at Las Tortas Locas…
I’m dressed in “lavanderia clothes” today (read “fantastically out-of-date jeans and a t-shirt earned running the Tybee Island half marathon back in the days when we rented a house known as “The Captain’s Lady”). Luckily, or perhaps unfortunately, there is almost no concern for me meeting a woman at the lavanderia while being dressed so poorly.
RealiTV Update: Top Chef Texas — The Best Way To Stay In The Game Is To Leave The Game
Last night my healing mouth was made happy with some pho and tofu, bought from SoBa and brought over to the house by ITP-Reader Betsy. Betsy and I shared a wee little bit of wine as we consumed our meals, waiting for Top Chef to start.
I get a little annoyed at RealiTV when one of the contestants, cheftestants in this case, leaves a challenge for a medical reason and is spared elimination even though he/she clearly hampered the team with his/her absence. For last night’s elimination challenge Sarah was overcome with heat exhaustion and had to leave her team. None of that seemed to come into play when her teammates were railed for cutting their meats early — because they were down a person. I’m not saying that “Malibu” Chris, who happened to be on the other three-person team on the Top Chef Chopping Block (a term they can run with if they wish), didn’t deserve to be booted but I believe that Sarah’s medical evacuation should have also resulted in elimination.
It may be the wine talking when I say this, but this season’s group of cheftestants don’t seem to have the creative chops that previous season cheftestants did.
Happy Birthday, ITP-Reader Steve
As he mentioned yesterday (well played, sir), today is ITP-Reader Steve’s birthday. At least I hope so, otherwise I’ve been duped for the first time (of many) in 2012.
