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!
