Dental followup

Got an appointment for 9am at the dentists, and called into work to let them know I would be late. Drove down to be attended to and arrived about 10 minutes early, got my information updated with them, and sat down to read comics on the free Internet station they have in their lobby.

Finally got called back, and they took x-rays of the wisdom tooth and confirmed that yep, it needed to come out. And out it came, all while I breathed deep on the laughing gas and watched CNN on a TV mounted on the ceiling.

Best. Dentist. Ever.

Seriously, I love these guys. They are pleasant, efficient, and almost entirely pain-free. And don’t underestimate the value of having a pretty girl pat you and tell you you’re doing fine to calm the nerves. 🙂

If you live in Atlanta, I cannot strongly enough recommend DentalTLC in Sandy Springs. If you don’t live in Atlanta, I think you should COME to Atlanta and see them anyway.

Starting to feel the side of my face again. i imagine by the time I get home, I’ll want some painkillers again. But for the moment, all is well, at least with regards to my mouth.

Vulnerability announced in Skype client

F-Secure just announced that a remote exploit vulnerability has been found in the Skype chat client. People are advised to update immediately.

I know a lot of people on my flist use Skype regularly, so I wanted to make sure and point it out.

Just what I needed

Came home last night after a not-bad catchup day at work, expecting to have a nice dinner and then go gaming at bedlamhouse‘s, as I do most Tuesdays. I was fussing around the house, getting things settled before sitting to eat, when suddenly a weird throbbing pain stabbed me in the mouth. At first, I thought it was just a weird facial muscle cramp or something, but then it came again.

Oww. That wisdom tooth that’s been needing looked at finally hit critical.

Fortunately, I was able to get hold of my dentist, who called me in a prescription for painkillers and antibiotics, and I spent the evening being rather stoned and loopy, but mostly not uncomfortable. I’m now waiting for their office to open in 45 minutes to call and get an appointment.

Not what I wanted from my evening.
