I went to the dentist for the first time in about 5 years today. It was just a checkup and everything’s fine, but by god do I remember why I stopped going in the first place. I would honestly rather have a rectal exam that have various metal implements shoved into my mouth.
And to top it off, I go in with my mouth/teeth feeling fine but now they’ve had their way with me my mouth aches and feels weird. Ugh.
Still, I went. Small victory. I’ll celebrate with a can of Coke and a big slice of cake! (not really)
Obviously The Thick of It is great because of the insults, but I just lost it at “a Curly-Wurly should be the size of a small ladder.” I don’t know why.
I know I complain about family a lot, but seriously, they’re really annoying. My dad invited his parents around for lunch. Now they’re staying for a cup of tea and they’ve joined me in the room I was hiding from them all in.
My paternal granddad talks reaaally slowly, takes about 30 seconds for his brain to process anything said to him, or it takes 30 seconds for his brain to process the fact he didn’t hear what was just said to him so has to say, “what?”
Today I booked my last 2 days of holiday off work for the year. A normal Thursday and Friday in early December.
That means for the entire week of Christmas I’ll be working 8am-5pm, including both Christmas Day and Boxing Day. I get the satisfaction and comfort of a quiet office and I don’t have to endure boring family stuff at home, which will be worse this year because a lot of my extended family will be visiting.
Do you think they’ll let me sleep in the office too? There’s a shower I can use, plenty of snacks and drinks and things, and some comfortable couches.
