So...

I have a little Christmas tree now. It's fiberoptic, because apparently artificial trees without ornaments shorter than four feet are all fiberoptic these days. But, it turns out, I actually kind of like it. I have lights for it, and I put on ornaments. I even hung the tackiest ornament I own, because it's just that unique. My Christmas shopping is nearly done, and I won't stress if I don't get the last few done. I bought the office's present to our boss yesterday, too. Stuff is started to arrive in the mail, and I'm looking forward to wrapping it all. I hope to get my cards done tonight. It took me a while to get excited about the season this year, but it did finally kick in.

I am 27 years old. I am rather bored with teething. My wisdom teeth don't bother me often, but when they do, I have much more sympathy for the babies. If I remember correctly, it's been close to ten years; I wish they'd just break through the gums and stop bothering me. The one that has isn't a problem any more. I guess I'm just not wise enough yet.

I overslept this morning. I know the alarm went off, but I must have turned it off instead of hitting snooze. I woke up at 9:15, when the phone rang. Still made it in by 9:45 (I love my commute) and before Joe got there, but 'twas mightily embarrassing.

There are non-fiberoptic artificial trees out there, but there is something rather cool about the small fiberoptic ones (the large ones kinda freak me out for some reason). I think your tree sounds fabulous (don't let it go to your head, though, you know I like tacky crap).

Wisdom teeth - that's odd. What does your dentist say?

Last time I saw a dentist, he said they weren't impacted, and they weren't a problem. He couldn't justify taking them out under a general, but if I wanted them out under Novocaine he'd do it. They didn't bother me more than mild teething symptoms a couple of times a year, so I chose to leave them in.

I don't currently have a dentist, but since they still only make me feel like I'm teething a couple of times a year, I don't get any actual pain, and they don't seem to be moving my other teeth much, I don't think it matters. As I said, one of them finally came through mostly, and doesn't bother me at all now - and it's the one that I started feeling first. I'm betting the others will come through at some point in the next 3-5 years.

Most of the time it's not even something that I think about, today's just one of those twice-a-year days.

Oye. Teething for several years (even if it's only every couple of months) sounds like no fun! I'm glad I have no wisdom teeth.
