Drooling, drolly.

For those of you concerned about how my oral surgery went: I am well. I am on vicodin. Thus, I am well.

For those of you who had no idea that I was to have oral surgery: I had oral surgery today. Pulled one tooth. I love my oral surgeon. He's completely goofy.

For those of you who still don't know who I am: I am Sara.

For those of you who will care: I saw the new Star Wars yesterday. Yes.

For those of you who will care, part II: Check this Sunday's Zest section for the lead CD review by yours truly. Exciting!



  • SWEET! Did you have popcorn?

  • Braces, Adolph. No popcorn. But a huge, huge icee that my boss paid for. That's really the best way to have an icee: expensed.

  • So how was it? If you tell us how good it is, will your bosses care? Did you bring a camera phone to record it?

    By Blogger Adolph, at 3:01 PM  

  • We weren't allowed to take anything in with us, so no camera phones. I don't think anyone will care if I say that it's really pretty good, but given that I didn't see the first two of this trilogy (Star Wars really isn't my thing), I had no expectations. I knew enough from the original movies to not be completely lost and it's not like these are difficult movies to understand anyway. I can say that I liked it and the big fans I was with seemed to think it was on par with the other two in trilogy, which is to say: not as good as they wanted.

    I'll be interested to hear what you think, what Brian thinks, what Juan thinks once you all see it.

  • Think about it, no. Feel, yes!

  • sara: wasn't there a BenFolds CD review coming out at some point? i was looking forward toward that one.

    also: star wars, not your thing? you love icees? this tears me apart, really (particularly if it was a coke icee) because to see you in my mind, just kind of shrug your shoulders at space battles and lightsabers and yet have the same love for (coca cola) icees that i do, seems a terrible contradiction.

    for what's it's worth, i'm horribly jealous that you've seen it, which now that i think about it doesn't really say much given that i'm jealous of anyone that can simply decide to go to the movies at the drop of a hat. i haven't been to the movies in forever.

    i hardly have the time to sit down and really enjoy a rented dvd.

  • oh, in my ranting i forgot:

    i'm glad your oral surgery went well. i try to put on a sunny face for the dentist, but i really really hate it. i mean, i hate it. i can't type the word 'hate' enough when talking about how much i hate the dentist. hating going to the dentist has always been a part of my life. it's very possible that my psyche is blocking a very traumatic dental episode in my early years. i don't care to remember it, but i'm sure it's there. it's the only explanation for how much i hate the dentist. hate. hate. hate.

  • Hey Killy, Songs for Silverman came out a few days ago.

    By Blogger Adolph, at 11:51 PM  

  • The CD review this Sunday is the Ben Folds review, so check it out.

    The thing with Star Wars: I have panic attacks when I go to the movies. So I have a hard time going to ANY movie. When you add flashing lights and thunderous music, I'm a basketcase. I must lump Star Wars in with any of the other action/adventure movies that make me freak out.

    One way to keep me somewhat calm is a nice, cold Icee.

    Bottom line: I don't get worked up about any movie. I can't think of any movie I've been excited about seeing.

  • Also, the dentist:

    I always viewed the dentist as something rich people did. It wasn't made a priority in my family because we just didn't have the money. So not only was I deathly afraid of the dentist because all I knew was that you're supposed to fear the dentist, but when I became old enough to go on my own it felt like I was doing something above my station. That sounds dumb, but I'm that way about a lot of things.

    For instance: I refuse to valet park.

    But braces have always been a goal. It was something I'd wished for growing up because my teeth are so damn crooked. I felt so self-conscious about it and it made me cringe every time I looked at photos of myself or looked at myself in the mirror. I thought about it constantly. If I wanted braces, though, I'd have to become one of those people who went to the dentist. And so I did.

    I was lucky to find a very nice, comforting dentist who immediately put me at ease. His entire staff knows me and talks to me and he now treats my mom and my sister and it's a great situation. That has helped a lot: feeling like my dentist cares about me and has an interest in my well-being.

    So now I've had countless fillings filled, had the wisdom teeth removed, been through a year of orthodontic treatment that didn't include braces (he tried a whole bunch of other things to get my mouth to move around, but none of it was successful), now braces and another tooth pulled to make room for my teeth to move.

    I'm a total pro at this now.
