Biting

This is going in my Channing Tatum collection eventually, but I can't not share this right now.



Last night I picked up my new $330 bite guard. My old retainer (really old, over fifteen years old) finally broke last month so I decided to opt for a bite guard since it'll do the same thing and minimize the damage from night grinding. Win/Win! I slept in it last night and I love it! It's so...comforting. It feels much safer(?) than the retainer. Like it's cradling my teeth. I'm very happy with it.

Locals, d'you know Liberty Hall is hosting a screening of Galaxy Quest Sunday night? We're going.

Saturday I'm giving a massage (and some emotional support) to a friend in desperate need. Her life's been rough the past few weeks. Sunday is the usual 8 hour laundry/errands/food prep job. But tonight I'm looking forward to a few hours of sloth, and hedonism with [livejournal.com profile] mckitterick. And since I have an appointment at 4:00 today (meeting with Dr. Khosh to discuss post-surgery treatment/support methods), I have only six more hours in the office today.

Galaxy Quest is more beautiful every time I see it.

Have you heard the story about how Patrick Stewart refused to see it, fearing that it mocked Star Trek but Jonathan Frakes convinced him to see it and he loved it? So awesome!

Oh my god I laughed myself silly at Kid Theatre. I also sent it to a friend who is stuck in job training all day, so either I really helped get her through it or I just got her kicked out of a session for cackling at inappropriate times. :D

Galaxy Quest was one of the inspirations for mah first novel. So clearly I need to see it like a gazillion more times before I sit down to finish it.

Hooray for happy mouth and planned sloth/hedonism! And bless you for helping out your friend. I hope she'll be okay.

Yay! I hope your friend doesn't get in trouble, but if she does, worth it.

I had a bite guard for a while--I have mild jaw issues, and I was clenching in my sleep.

I could never make it a whole night wearing the damn thing. I kept having dreams of stuff stuck in my teeth and then waking up to find I'd pulled it out. And it made me drool SO MUCH.

I don't clench in my sleep anymore thankfully, because after my bike crash in 2010 it wouldn't fit anymore, my teeth alignment changed!

I'm glad I find it so pleasant! It's easy for me to leave it in.

SLOTH! HEDONISM! I suggest a portmanteau, "SLOTHEDONISM" -- now if we can just work in "WINE" to be part of the obligatory win-condition...

BTW, I barked laughter repeatedly during Tatum's shenanigans.

I think Slothdonism is quite a good brand name for the wine itself.
