|||||knocked down but i get up agn||]|
day begins at 1AM, as I wake myself in a caughing fit. Sleeplessness continues through the morning. I call in sick and do work from home until my dentist apptmt.
surprise surprise I have another cavity. conoseiur of hygene that i am it had been 2 years since my last dental apptmt. cost of visit with xrays and prescription toothpaste 290 $. covered by insurance. follow up for cavities, resealing, and some stuff i didn't understand... $700 half covered by insurance. The kicker, I have to get my new teeth yanked. $300 a tooth. plus $250 for general anesth. Not sure what of that is covered by insurance, but if not all of it God help me I will certainly do it conscious to save some book money. quote of the day: dental nurse equivalent, "Do you ever get a bad taste in your mouth?" to which I thoughtlessly replied, "Yeah, if I eat something that tastes bad." She then made a Stanford jeer.
lastly i checked out 20 books for some research before I go back to school. I had to ask for help carrying them all back to my car. Engineers never have to deal with that crap.
will put my head back to the grinding wheel tomorrow. tonight i'm reading and watching iRobot with my dad and sister.
