Imperial politics and teeth

I'm a big supported of deadlocked federal politics. I'm usually pretty happy when nothing is getting passed. Go sign MoveOn's Anti-Anti-Filibuster petition. Lets not destroy the 230 year old checks and balances of government. [edit: not much point anymore.]

And my teeth are no longer perfect. I'm getting two small fillings this afternoon, and I'm overly and irrationally upset about it. I don't care about any pain, I just feel like now that the structural integrity of my teeth has been breached it's an inevitable downhill slide to dentures. I realize most folks response is, "What, your getting your first fillings NOW? And your UPSET? Good grief." I know. Still, it's yet another reminder that my warranty is up.

My face was around here somewhere....

I have been filled. Or, a couple of my teeth have anyway. And the entire side of my face is numb. And my lips feel huge. And I'm hungry and I have a headache, but I tried eating and I think I'm going to chew my tongue off. :D It's both fun, and annoying.

I think I'm going to have to go back in and get my dentist to carve some more of this filling resin crap out though. I think part of my headache is from my bite.
