Dentist Visit #1 of 6, over and done with yesterday! On this visit, I got the right side of my face shot to hell with Novocaine, then all of the plaque was scraped out from underneath my gums. VERY EXCITING STUFF. The dentist was very sweet, though. The worst part of the whole thing was the Novocaine shots, and I'm now debating over whether it would have been better just to suffer through the gum digging. Probably not. But I had to get five "sticks" (read: PAINFUL FRICKEN' STABS), and then deal with the fact that I couldn't feel the right side of my face for hours, and today my gums are sore, not from the actual cleaning, but the needle stabs. Also, while I was numb, I bit the shit out of my cheek trying to eat something. That is hurting now, too. NICE.
Only five more visits to go (left side of Periodontial cleaning, Periodontial cleaning check up, right side cavities, left side cavities, crown) and then I am NEVER LETTING MY TEETH GO TO SHIT AGAIN. For reals, yo.
ON THE RAFFLE FRONT: The Hufflepuff scarf is near completion! Get your tickets now! There will also be bonus prizes for non-scarf winners. I'm digging through all of my storage shed stuff, but I can tell you with certainty that one of these items will be "The Mummy" on DVD.

I posted about this a while back, but Can't Stop The Serenity is going to be in Dallas on Sunday. Takers? Tim Minear is going to be there. I think it would be a blast!
