That's the song from the SamBakZa flash movie that thedemonprist had linked to a while back in her LJ... the movie is cute and the song is hella-catchy. May just have to buy that album...

It's been a great past few days! It's nice having big chunks of off-time that are additionally free from worrying about studying or papers or other such nonsense. It's also nice that all parental units, by some cosmic coincidence, are currently vacationing/on business in Phoenix, leaving both Nick's and my house rather peaceful (and leaving me a car I can use whenever I need it- woo!). Nick's starting to feel better now, BTW, and during his recovery I have mastered the fine art of making CoCo Wheats.

We didn't do much of anything Thursday; we visited Oakland and had ice cream and played Settlers of Catan with mqstout, Josh, and Ryan on Friday; and yesterday we got Nick and Jeff measured for wedding tuxes before heading off to the Monroeville ComiCon... sort of. My heightened state of excitement resulted in a corresponding drop in brainpower, and we ended up in the wrong line and paid admission to a toy convention instead. But it ended up working out pretty well- admission was much, much cheaper ($5 a person as opposed to $17 for the ComiCon), and it had pretty much everything that you could find at the ComiCon, or at least the kind of stuff I go to the 'con for. I can't believe that a) I got away with only spending $35 and b) none of that $35 went toward Star Trek-related memorabilia. Instead, that $35 got me a four-disk DVD set of pretty much every damned episode of The Tick ever made. As he would say: "neato keen!" ;D

I worked today downtown for seven hours, which I thought would suck, but the time flew by. Good thing I loaded up on chocolate raspberry coffee, ne? Caffeine really does wonders for me sometimes.

Well, my former professor Dave is coming over tomorrow to play some games with me, Nick, and Jeff. I'm very excited. I just hope everyone hits it off nicely!

:D Glad to hear that Nick's feeling better! *sends more fast-healing vibes* ~~~~~~~~ *shudder* Hearing stories like his reminds me of why I chickened out of having my wisdom teeth yanked out several years ago. I've got two of the bastards that are all but buried in my gums, so they'd have to put me out and dig around in there to get rid of 'em. The other two are erupted enough that they could probably be pulled regularly, with basic numbing - but I'm still not keen on that idea. >.< Frickin' teeth...if they're gonna cause so much bloody trouble, why'd we have to have 'em in the first place?!

That Witches song is hella cool, innit? :D I am so buying that CD, once I get some money here...

Yup, Nick's teeth were all impacted, and they had to drill into his jaw to get at the bottom ones. He had IV sedation and nitros, and boy was he ever stoned when they were through with him... it was scary, seeing him like that. But this was the best thing for him in the long run, since one of the wisdom teeth was completely dead and decaying in his mouth, and that one and another one were slowly breaking into pieces every so often. He's almost 100% now, thank goodness!

I've had two of mine out, each at a separate time... I was awake both times, and it wasn't too bad. I really should get the other two out too, but guess who just graduated and no longer has health insurance, hehe? ;)

The only site where I found that album says it's out of stock, BTW... but I filled something out that'll e-mail me whenever it's available again. If you want I can let you know, too- or you can wait 'til I buy it and make a copy for you! ^_^

Holy fuck... O.o;;

I think I'll just subscribe to the 'ol school of "If It Ain't Broke Don't Fix It" and leave my wisdom teeth the hell alone until/unless they start causing real problems.

Health insurance? What is this thing of which you speak?
