Hello World!

I must say I got a very unexpected surprise for my birthday. No, it wasn’t the socks, or the jumpers (though given the weather recently, they were one of the more appreciated). It wasn’t the cd voucher, or the money from relatives, though the Tootsie rolls and Tuvok action figure sent by a friend of mine in the USA were greatly welcomed (it’s amazing – in the space of around a month, I’ve gone from owning a single Trek video and a book or two to owning two scripts, a photo and an action-figure. Tuvok is now peering around my monitor, phaser rifle in hand while the ‘Lifeline’ script in particular I hope to get autographed come June and the arrival of Robert Picardo). No, it was the arrival of an explanation for the irritation I’ve been getting in my upper and lower jaws for the past few days. Hello wisdom teeth.

Actually, make that ‘hello expensive dental bill’. Contrary to what many people would have you believe (even, admittedly, myself at times), I actually have a small mouth. Either that or I just have big teeth, ‘cause three or four or even one pearly white more ain’t gonna fit without some serious adjustments to the ones that are already there. As such, I have the sinking feeling that in a few days as they continue to erupt, things are going to get a tad painful for poor ‘ol me.

Conciliatory Tootsie rolls and/or money are welcome. ;)
