Went to my fave coffee shop today. I'm there so often the baristas all know me rather well. So while I was waiting for my coffee one of the baristas starting talking to me about smash bros. We were exchanging stories and he asked how my kids were doing at it (I often take my kids to get drinks there too) and I started talking about how they were doing and about how the youngest is really enjoying it and having fun. At this point a group of people walk in as I say, "But my other kids are getting older, so it's getting a lot harder for me to beat them." The group looked at me disgust thinking I was some kind of child beater.

Barber did my moustache like a Mexican bandit.  After the cut, he showed me a picture of Pancho Villa on his phone and laughed. 

Now I'm ready to play Red Dead in style.

I'm working off all this weight I gained during the holidays and it sucks. Can't snack, always hungry. FML. When I did this a couple of years ago I lost 35 pounds over 5ish months so I know what I'm doing but it never gets easy.

I have become such a curmudgeon that I've started scheduling meetings close to lunch so I don't have to go out to lunch with people. I hate eating alone but I don't like doing lunch with people I can just tolerate.

It's quite cold today and I was wearing shorts because I went to the gym before I went to the store. The gym is in the same complex and so there are always people in gym clothes at the store.

Had multiple people coming up to me asking what my problem was/if I was nuts/if I thought I was in Florida. Like, bitch, this is the Mid West, you see people in shorts all winter long all 74 years of your life, grabbing a stranger by the shoulder and yelling "ARE YOU NUTS" in a store while someone is getting coffee syrup is a bad way to start a conversation. And I'm the asshole because I didn't go along with it. Literally hit her with the :beli and walked off as she said I WAS ONLY JOKING.

Just before leaving for the USA, discovered I had an infection in a previous root canal. Dosed up on antibiotics during the trip, and determined to have it taken care of on my return.

Arrived back in Tokyo Monday, made an appointment for today (Friday).

The dentist thought they could just put new meds in my root canal and then re-fill it, but when they popped my crown, the tooth was cracked and unsalvageable.

I spent an hour having my first tooth extraction in four decades.

It was every bit as traumatizing as I remembered, having that bone-on-bone grating noise resonating through my skull while they pulled.

Also had to have 6 shots of anæsthesia before the pain stopped short of my eyeball.

After deciding I should probably go home, I tried to tell my project management partner what he'd need to cover during the afternoon, and I started bleeding out of my mouth. SUPER SEXY if you're a vampire, no so much for a PM.

Now I'm home, and my one roomie suggested whisky, and the other an ice pack. I'm doing better, but I look like a Private Investigator from a noir film who lost a fight.

Chosing completely arbitrary things to judge people for is the conservative way.

Really it's choosing arbitrary things to pat yourself on the back for caring about, but same difference. 

I have yet to go to an NFL game where I didn't hear someone acting like somebody murdered a grass hut full of MIA soldiers for not removing their hat during the anthem.

"Look at me caring about whether you follow a pointless ritual, aren't I morally superior! AND OFFENDED"

"Also, queers getting married?  Not on my watch!  Your soul will burn for eternal damnation and torture!  WHAT you are offended?  For disagreeing with my opinion? Snowflake!"

At the client site on a lay off day/day of huge corporate drama.

A client worker that I worked with was laid off and she (a late middle age little chinese lady) saw me in the hall and grabbed my ass, and said, "Now that I won't get the chance."

I know I'm supposed to be offended, but I sorta think it's hilarious.

The inconvenience is that nothing is going to get done now. No one will move a muscel to do anything.

Dude, that's rough. My second guitar teacher had chronic migraines, she essentially mainlined caffiene all day. I used to have 45 minute lessons with her and in that amount of time she would down two sodas. I once was like "That's terrible for you." She told me it was the only way to keep off the migraines. I hope you don't get to that point.

You sure it's not anxiety? Lots of people confuse migranes with anxiety if they've never had anxiety before. They go for years trying different headache pills, diets, etc when they should be treating anxiety instead.

Oh, I've definitely got that too, no worries, but I've never had a headache this bad before. It was probably (hopefully) just a really bad stress headache, it didn't have any of the traditional migraine symptoms, but the thought crossed my mind.
