Fixer Upper

I had an eye exam on Monday night and ordered my batch of disposable contacts for the next year. Don't even get me started on how much it costs to keep me from walking around completely blind. It's almost as bad as taking care of my rotten teeth. Speaking of which, I've had four dentist appointments this summer and I still haven't had a teeth cleaning yet. That's FOUR occasions of having my face drilled. Me and my dentist are old friends now.

You may remember a few months ago when I talked about having a hole in my tooth. Well when I went to have it looked at it turns out I had lost a filling. Then, after having my entire mouth x-rayed it was brought to my attention that in addition to the broken filling, I also had four other cavities. PLUS, it was highly recommended that I have two other fillings replaced. What a joy. Luckily, I just finished taking care of all of them last week. However, my dentist also wants to replace a crown I have at some point because apparently I used to go to the crappiest dentist in the midwest. On the bright side, at least we have really good insurance now and it didn't completley break us. I remember a few years ago when I had a root canal and a crown it cost me NINE HUNDRED DOLLARS. And the guy only took cash. I swear I did not go to a ghetto dentist. It was in Schaumburg and he was the closest dentist on my insurance providers list. Yep, I had insurance and it still cost me nine hundred bucks. And now it needs to be replaced.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I'm feeling good (if not broke) now that I have my teeth and eyes in check.

Completely unrelated, I also wanted to say how disappointed I am in Jon Stewart for going so easy on Senator Rick Santorum on the Daily Show the other day. I tuned in looking for a smackdown and Jon seemed so timid about debating that Santorum almost came off looking like a reasonable person- which is quite an amazing feat if you ask me. Oh, Jon! Why hast thou forsaken me? (Okay, okay, I know you wanted to play nice and it is a comedy show, but I would have enjoyed at least one little jab.)

  1. I saw that, too! Although my panties did get a little scrunched up over the whole gay marriage issue ("natural" marriage? so being homosexual is "unnatural"? !!! don't get me started), the Ice Cream Debate was pretty funny.
