The root of all hardware maths plays huts
So, I had an on and off tooth problem last week.

This morning, I went to see a dentist friend. He referred me to an Endodontist, who was able to see me this afternoon.

The long and the short of it is: I got a root canal today.

Everybody was so friendly, and the facility was gorgeous. The entire procedure, including several x-rays, took only an hour.

Did I mention it was completely painless? Hooray for specialization!



To help with my recovery, Paul bought me this book today: Pirateology.

Yup. A pirate book I can touch. I'm head over heels.



Remember when I couldn't decide between the 160GB and 250GB replacement drive for my computer?

I went for a 320GB drive. Seriously, it was the best price point.

Imafreak.

I suppose I could make it an external, but I don't have usb 2.0 yet. USB 2.0 PCI cards are under $10 now, so perhaps I'll rectify that situation, too. I could get a second 320 drive and do backups! O_O

OK, maybe some other time. I don't even want to begin researching which of these things have pin connectors for my front USB.

I am, however, also grabbing a DVD-RW drive that happens to be on sale. Why not, right? It's not like I just spent $800 freaking dollars on some rubber in my tooth or anything :P

I'm not sure whether I'll get rid of my CD-RW or my DVD-Rom. Whichever's louder, I guess!



I've been reading. I just blew through this book, am starting this one, and am finishing this book inbetween.

The Chaos book is particularly intriguing... but I needed a silly break from it for a bit :) My next "serious" book will be a return to Phi or Godel Escher and Bach. What can I say; I'm feelling mathy.



The play is a no-go. The director called me this weekend to let me know that she found someone "of Carribean descent" for the role.

Still, I like to think that maybe, at least, I've made a connection here, so all is not lost :)



OK, I'm exhausted. Time for sleepies.

I hope you are all well and happy and pursuing your blissessesseses.

~Huts to those who need 'em, those who want 'em, and those who don't run away quickly enough~


Yes, huts. The typo is making me giggle so I'm leaving it where it is :)

I'm feeling all kinds of: sleepy huts!
What I hear: fans blowing

Everyone is so afriad of root canals, but the scariest part is the pain you go through before you get it done.

So very true! The process from dentist to endodontist was so quick, I didn't have time to fret! :)

chaos book

Gleick's Chaos is a really fun read.
I can't believe it's been about 20 years since I read it. :)

Huts to those who need 'em

Eeek!  No Jabba for me!
Hgus are good, though.

Re: chaos book

Haha, I thought "Jabba" when I first caught the typo, too :)

Chaos has aged well. There's very little in there that seems dated-- strange, for a book reporting on a "new" science.
