Today was Coronation Day—had my second crown installed and a final cleaning. Both dentist and dental hygienist seemed happy with the New and Improved™ state of my choppers and gums. And when they’re happy, I’m happy.
As this visit didn’t require long amounts of time in the chair with drills screaming and sharp tools ripping my gums open, took it like a man and had a natural dentist experience without any Valium involved. And asked them the same questions I asked last time that I can vaguely recall asking but can’t remember the answers to. But they have enough clients that they can’t remember who asked what, so my Dennis Hopper moments seemingly went unnoticed.
Am now feeling highly motivated to keep up with regular cleanings and checkups, etc.
Must … keep … drill … away. Drill scare Grog.

All Nic wants for WWDC is sync that actually works
Another book roundup, including some stellar athletes and soldiers, what might be the most jaded, soul-weary protagonist ever, and some grimdark fantasy.
The Internet is getting creepy, and Nic is breaking out his tinfoil hat after newspaper paywalls push him over the edge.
Nic is tired of tech sites obsessing over Apple’s financials and business strategy. So very tired.
Nic reads a book about the processed food industry and is incensed.
Computers are complicated. This brings out the irrational in people.
Nic proposes the loan word Rechthaberei be incorporated into American English.
The Core Dump is back! Books were read during the hiatus. Includes The Coldest Winter, Oh, Myyy!, Tough Sh*t, The Revolution Was Televised, The Rook, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Gun Machine, Fortress Frontier, Standing in Another Man’s Grave, and The Memory of Light.
This site will return in February.
From a true patriot to a world-weary detective, a dead god, and a civilization about to sublime from the galaxy, this book roundup spans the gamut. Includes Where Men Win Glory, Wild, Inside the Box, The Black Box, Three Parts Dead, Red Country, and The Hydrogen Sonata.
