since when do spiders have teeth anyway?
but somehow, the X-ray of my molars looks (very vaguely) like this. That black scribbley bit is decay. and yes, it looks like it might be into the nerve. which, yes, may mean root canal.
I am on anti-biotics and i have a nice long invoice which suggests that i may be very lucky that my parents are still helping with health-care stuff. I am cranky. I am sore. I am also kind of relieved. It's the first time in the last 10 years (apart from the leg-slicing incident) where a Dr has said "Wow, ok, yes there's something wrong" instead of "well... i don't know. It's nothing obvious. Are you sure you feel like death?".
I'm also kind of amused - my dr told me not to floss when i went to see him last week, and when i told my dentist that she nearly had cardiac arrest.
Let's distract ourselves with some knitting.
I am currently working on the key-hole top from interweave knits.
Yes this one:I'm about this far. Well, I'm exactly that far actually. that's the waist band, all the way up to the arm pits and part of the right back. I'm enjoying it but knitting cotton always hurts my hands a little. And let no-one think the irony of my knitting this when it's 5 degrees outside and knitting thrummed mittens in the middle of summer is lost on me. I am clearly a crazy person (but i have an excuse now, i have a tooth trying to make a break for it!).
Still working away at my sock stuff. It's all done, i'm just polishing the workbook thingy i'm writing for participants - so far we have three original sock patterns, some yarn reviews and information and basic information about heel-flap socks. I'm pretty happy with it... but i am also a perfectionist. So we shall see.
Back at uni and it sucks bollocks, i have five hours straight of socio-cultural politics in education every monday. Beware the cranky-pants, they'll be giving me a major wedgie by the end of that. erk.
Off to numb myself with 80's movies, nurofen plus and knitting.
