Health

Drama CDs make it better!

Am still having a slight fever, I think, but listening to the Saiyuki boys yammering away (and Goyjo still entertaining a death wish calling Sanzo “tanuki” (raccoon)) it’s a wonderful nostalgic trip!

Edit: Bad Company’s my favourite so far… if only because hearing Hakkai and Sanzo argue like husband-and-wife is priceless~

Overreacting subconscious?

I’m home from work because of a silly little fever. I suppose I should have seen it coming considering that earlier this morning, I woke up before six chattering my teeth off from cold. Even my comforter couldn’t keep me warm. I dozed in and out of consciousness, and when I did doze, I dreamt that I was watching this movie/comic in my dream. It seemed to be a fancomic, with the girl being the focus of the villain’s attention. When the hero came to rescue her, he was hung over a volcano while the girl was locked in an underground ice cavern.

I know I wanted to be warm, but that’s a bit too hot, don’t you think?

Teeth extraction!

Yesterday, I noticed my wisdom tooth (the last teeth, right at the back of your jaws) was feeling kind of off. When my tongue was playing with it at night, pieces of said tooth came out, which freaked me to no end. I went to see a dentist today, who recommended me to take the wisdom tooth out as it was completely rotten.

I chickened out at the first go because I was afraid of the big needle. I told them I’d be back soon and went to make a call to [Raz], who was the only other person I could think of at the time who’d done a wisdom tooth extraction AND was awake. Then I went back into the fray.

Closing my eyes during the administration of the anaesthetic helped a lot, and I didn’t feel as scared as I was before. In about 10-15 minutes, the tooth was out relatively painlessly. Dr Mohan showed me the tooth and I can see why he said that it needed to be taken out. It was rotten to the core. He told me to bite on some cotton (he changed it twice while I was there and told me not to use my mouth so much today) and said that after 30 minutes, I should go and have a cold drink or ice-cream.

The painful part was the anaesthetic injection, actually. As it were, I’m going to go for a bath before finally eating some food for breakfast. Here’s the pics for those who still have appetites after reading this entry.
