Linking up with Carissa at Lowercase Letters for Miscellany Monday

1. I had oral surgery on Thursday. Wisdom teeth are the devil. Needless to say it wasn't a fun experience. I was NPO since 10 PM the night before, my surgery was scheduled for 2:15 PM. Needless to say I was cranky. The doctor and nurses and staff were awesome, but I don't know if many people go into that in good spirits. When they strapped me arm into some sort of brace and then strapped me down to the table I started to get nervous, then when they rolled the table over me and put some strange contraption on my throat I very nearly had a panic attack. But after that the nurse and I started talking about dwarves and that was the last thing I remember. (I still can't remember which dwarf we couldn't name.)

I don't remember much of the rest of the day other than trying to give Ducky directions to the pharmacy, which now that I think I about it, I may have been directing him towards a Sonic. Either way, I remember being bunched up in the car and it being rather warm but he came out with pain meds. So either Sonic is putting something special in their Ocean Water or I waved him into a legitimate pharmacy.

2. My pain meds make me rather loopy. I can function, but my mind isn't quite as sharp and my mind wanders to the most random situations. Also, they look like Certs. They have red sparkly flecks. Why does my narcotic pain medication look like a breath mint?

3. Im kinda sick of this soft food diet. This is pretty much how my diet goes:
    anti-nausea, pain, antibiotic
    anti-nausea, antibiotic, pain
    mashed potatoes

I now hate Jello. I tried some normal food last night. BIG mistake. Stitches plus pizza = immense pain

4. When you mention you had your wisdom teeth removed, the very first thing people will launch into a discussion about is dry socket. I've been warned about this by everyone I've spoken to about it. Yeesh

5.  My internet connection has been very spotty. Considering what I pay for, I shouldn't have this big of an issue. Daily between 12-3 my connection starts dropping in and out. My ISP's advice? Restart your modem, restart your router. Yeah..not much help there. I've put in 2 service requests and they've canceled both.

6. Safari is pissing me off as well. It's gotten extremely slow, freezing and crashing. I use Chrome for work, so I guess I'm going to need to pull out and brush off Firefox for personal stuff.  Stupid browser.

7. Why did the cancel Caroline in the City? I love that show. It's playing on TVGuide network now. So I can at least watch it. Even if its super out of order.

That's all I have for today! Thanks for letting me rant and rave!!!


  1. awwww. hahah everyone warns your about dry socket because it is incredibly painful and makes the wisdom teeth pain seem like a walk in the park. It's one of those pains you never forget, like labor. Hope you are feeling better now! And, I really want a slush from Sonic now.
