Thursday... But Actually My Friday

I'm off work for a 3 day weekend. Woo Hoo! Last Sunday it was my turn in the rotation to work. So in exchange I get the following Friday off. Hence the 3 day weekend. Did I say woo hoo already? LOL!

I'm especially happy today is over with because it was "Qualification Day". Some of you may have heard me bitch about this day before. It comes a few times a year and when it does I have to shoot my gun for a passing score. Or else I won't be a police officer anymore. Now... I'm a good shot. Don't mistake that. But when it comes to test day... I get nervous. And I was really nervous this go 'round cuz of my knee issues. Part of the course requires shooting while on your knees. I wasn't sure I'd be able to do that. I had to shoot 2 fifty round courses plus a shotgun relay. I muscled through it and got a passing score. Not a great passing score. But this time... I don't care. I'm happy with it. One less stress-causing issue off the table. Yay!

In addition to the root canal of a couple weeks ago, the dentist saw a cavity that needed filled. I also needed a filling in the root canal tooth after the root canal was finished. But the specialist can't do a filling. WTF? For all the money I dropped on that and he can't do a freakin' filling when I'm already there in his office all numbed up? Whatever. So on Tuesday I had to go back to the dentist. I swear I've dropped about a grand on my teeth this month. Between the braces I had put on at age 24 and all the damn dental work that's followed.... my mouth is worth a small fortune. Too bad the bank doesn't consider that collateral when ya need a loan, right? So guess what? I had my fillings done with NO NOVOCAINE. Yes I'm a BAD AZZ! But in all fairness.... the root canal tooth was already dead and the cavity in the other tooth was very small. But still.... no freakin' novocaine, people. I still think I'm a bad ass. LOL!

I never should have mentioned that stupid game on Facebook. You know.... Mafia Wars. Remember? I'm now addicted to it. And it truly is a stupid waste of time. I'm just not sure why I keep playing it. Every day. Sometimes more than once a day. I need help. :P

Totally off topic here (like this post isn't already jumping all over the place, right?) but why does asparagus make your pee smell funny? Anybody know? Of course, I had asparagus this week. Which is why I'm asking.

I'm loving Idol! They have some seriously talented people this season! It's gonna be hard to start voting folks off. So my faves are Adam and Danny. Adam is a bit strange. But there's something about him I'm digging. And Danny? Oh... just loved him from the very first audition. Matt is awesome, too. For the girls, I like Allison and Lil. But I think even as fabulous a singer as Lil is... she's slipping. Not sure why she hasn't found her groove lately. I also like Kris Allen. I don't think he'll make it to the top but I see a record deal in his future. I like Anoop and Michael but they're not gonna win this either. See? Lots of talent this season! I'm over Megan. Yes she's cute and quirky and could probably make music I'd listen to (in a kind of Alanis Morrisette, Corrine Bailey Rae, Sara Bareilles vibe). But I don't think she belongs amongst this group on that stage. And as much as I love Scott... I don't see him lasting much longer either.

And on one last note.....
Sea star, (or should I say Simply T) Pug mama, Ava's mom, Lisa W.......
I think I know why there are no rumors yet. LOL!

Yay for Thurs/Fri! Yay for passing the test! DAMN @ getting fillings with no novocaine, bad ass indeed. And I think it's some chemical in asparagus that does that, but I'm not sure.

LOL @ the stork! :)

Have a great weekend!

Of course I know why asparagus makes your pee stink! You know I'm a curious girl and if I know what duck dong looks like then I certainly know about here it is: certain people carry an enzyme and certain people don't that causes the aspargus pee odor. I do, J doesn't. I offered to smell his pee one night cause I just had to know if it were true. ;) yeah, that's just the way I roll.

Pug Mama said...

There goes T's attempt to remain "G" rated.....she just said Duck dong.
Damn your penguins and their shenanigans.....they got the freakin' stork all mixed up.

Glad you passed the test.

Sorry you have the stinky enzyme when you eat asparagus.

PIPO said...

Simply T nailed it - when one can't break down mercaptan you get the famous stinky pee.

Enjoy the weekend...I'm still chasing enough appointments to keep me and The Wing out of trouble.

I'm a 'no novocaine' girl too...I found the pain degree to be overrated after doing a root canal too :0)

Glad your qualifying is behind you for a while again.

I tell ya, I know he won't win but I do think Anoop is just damn cute all the same.

Daniella said...

I was about to comment about the asparagus and pee but then I read T who confuses me cause she's not sea star any more and I decided, hell I don't know anything - I assumed everyone who ate it had smelly pee - okay need to stop commenting now. have a good weekend.

Michal said...

So glad to read that you Qualified! Congratulations. So what if it wasn't the BEST score ever- sometimes it's great to just get stuff crossed off the list and shoved out of your mind. Can I get an AMEN?
No Novocaine huh? Well at least we now know you will be able to handle the whole "let's fly to China and have someone hand me a baby and then stay there in China for two weeks and eat nothing but white rice and tepid Coca-Cola then fly all of the way back home while the baby pulls her own personlized version of Linda Blair With little or no sleep for most of that time". Yeah - you'll make it.
Okay so why does my pee smell like Cheerio's when I eat Cheerio's.....anyone...?

Carla said...

Yay! Glad you passed! Sorry to hear about the cavity, but seriously, no novocaine? What kind of freak does that?

That whole AI paragraph went completely over my head.

Glad that you passed the test and can now breathe a sigh of relief. As for your teeth.....holy crap, you are my hero. I deathgrip the chair with the novacaine.....there is no way I could make it through without it!!

Enjoy your long weekend!


Kayce said...

You will be my inspiration for my upcoming dental! If you can do it, so can I!!

As for the asparagus, I don't know but would love to find out! Around our house we call is ass-para-gas! LOL

Ava's family said...

Glad you passed your test. It's nice to get a worry like that off your shoulders.

I LOVE Adam, Danny, Matt, Allison and Lil. I do like Kris, but not as much as the other guys. Now....Meagan needs to go. I'm so damn sick of that little twisty dance she does every week. AHHHH!

Cute cartoon.
