Yesterday, I went to the dentist for the 6th time this year. Despite being under the continuing impression that I have stellar teeth, I must have passed on more money to my dentist this year than the IRS. Anyway, yesterday was a good dentist day. Everything looks looks nice, clean and undrillingworthy. We got our christmas bonuses at work yesterday. I owe money. My mum and dad spent 5 hours driving through Death Valley together. Apparently, it was a true test for their relationship as my mum was attempting to give directions. They made it out of there and slept in the same bed last night. My bed for that matter; I am on the floor. It really doesn't feel like christmas around here. It's like 80F with blue skies and sunshine. If Santa would really roam the city of angels, he'd sweat his beard off.
