I made it through work yesterday! Today I made it to my car, and that's it. All the excitement like standing around and talking yesterday buggered up the patches the dentist gave me, and now I think my stupid mouth is infected again, and for crying out loud. My coworker asked me yesterday if I felt angry at myself for not healing faster. I mean, no, there's nothing I can do about having Miraculously Non-Healing Soft Tissue, but I really hate that I'm not Tough Enough To Handle It. You know? Apparently, extreme pain makes me puke or pass out, and there doesn't seem to be much I can do about that, except lie in bed and feel like a really horrible person for basically not showing up at work for ALL OF FEBRUARY for a stupid outpatient surgery. I TOTALLY SUCK, GRRR.
Once I feel that it is Safe For Me To Drive, I will go to the dentist again and get repatched, and then slink into work for a few hours. I guess. *swears a lot*
And here is your Happy Thought Of The Day:
Star Trek: Enterprise. Is anyone else re-watching it on SciFi and finding it infinitely more fun this time around? Maybe it's that the stress of the show possibly being cancelled is gone, I don't know. Maybe it's because I haven't yet gotten to the episodes where Archer has dirty fantasies while his dog's in sickbay, or the one where T'Pol's in heat and nearly humps Reed's spacesuit, or that time she became a junkie and shot up into her neck. But seriously, I'm in love, that kind of blind, nostalgic love where I lose track of reason. I even listen to the theme song all the way through sometimes. And yesterday Captain Archer gave the much lamented Gazelle Speech and I actually went "Huh, that speech isn't nearly as ridiculously out of context as I remember it being."
And "Carbon Creek" is an extra supah adorable episode that I love, and it always makes me think of a wee baby T'Pol listening to stories and fantasizing about this crazeh planet called Earth.
