Saw one of my bees fly off to forage this afternoon despite the rainy weather which made me happy. She came out, flew up, did several circles to get her bearings, then made, well, a beeline for parts unknown.

 

Have you named them all yet? ::P:

Gonna find out if the root canal worked tonight. When my dentist was doing it he said from the looks of things that nerve was long gone. Then after he dropped a couple of the really small files they use for it, and having to dig around a bit to find my not-so-normal 4th canal, he said "I can see now why so many root canal specialists become alcoholics. I can handle doing one of these every now and again, but to do nothing but root canals all day, every day, would drive me crazy."

 

I went to an endodontist for mine at the suggestion of my dentist. He said he could do it, and it would be cheaper, but he wasn't a specialist. I'm glad I went with the endodontist, he and his team were so efficient and did a fantastic job, even considering they had to drill through a crown.

And I am now awake with the same tooth pain I had before... just to a slightly lesser extent. Still can't chew with the left side because of explosive pain, and there's still just the ever present pain that makes me eat ibuprofen, but being sensitive to room temperature water isn't happening anymore. So it's an improvement, I guess. Reading online said that it's most likely caused by the surrounding nerves and stuff in my gums and jaw being inflamed and aggravated due to the work, and this came from the American Association of Endodontists website so I'm pretty sure it's not wrong. I'll give it the weekend to see if it clears up, but if it's still painful come Tuesday I'll be calling my dentist. And if further work needs done, then I'm not going to be a happy camper at all unless they comp the new crown that will be needed after they drill through the brand new permanent crown that was just installed today.

 

Mine took about 4 days to calm down, but I was able to get mine taken care of the day the symptoms got really bad. Yours will most likely fade more gradually since yours has been going on for longer. 

 

I'm glad you were able to get yours taken care of! I could only handle mine for a weekend before I was ready to gouge the thing out myself. Worst pain I've ever experienced in my life. :zombie:

Hi Good Adventurer! Do you need a quest? I could really use your help! Please fetch me three chocolates, and a mug of tea! But beware - there are BEARS in the tea trees! 

But actually... I do need help. I HAVE A QUEST GUYS. 

 

Anyone want to record some voice clips for me to use in my D&D campaign? 

 

I need a stern female voice to be Wee Jas, whispering to my librarian (who's ~3-4 adventures out of getting a character whoopin/reward), and a kind female voice to be the spirit of the dog's former master (urging dog to protect the pack, and rescue said librarian). 

 

Um, I could probably help, but my available recording equipment isn't very good. 

 

Huzzah!

Ugh. I'm going to bed 4 hours early. I need to be able to wake up at 8am by Saturday for a graduation.

 

I work 2nd shift dang it all! Why can't graduations be held in the afternoon? I'm sure college students with something to celebrate will be able to keep sober until then ::P:

@OneBoot Doesn't have to be good, just needs to be a voice that isn't me! And a bit blurred is okay - it is interdimensional whispering after all.

My first ever root canals were done by an endodontist 10 years ago. He did two of them in about the same amount of time that it took to do this one, and there was no problem at all with them when it was done. The only "problem" was that it cost me $2,000. But that was handled by my medical insurance rather than my dental because of what happened to cause the need for them. I couldn't afford a $1,000+ bill for a root canal right now.

Yea, I'm giving it until Tuesday to calm down before I call back in.

It's was just about on par with having a tooth split open and the nerve exposed to open air, but with fewer triggers. And I have a relatively high pain tolerance for most things that aren't my feet.

Their first names are all Beeatrice, last name Buzzworth.

 

It's why I call them by their middle names nearly exclusively.

I've already seen big ol' bumblebees flying around right now, so I'm hopeful that bees will be out in good numbers this year.

Oh they are out here already and already under foot.  I don't know what it his about me and bees but they almost always seem to be where I'm trying to step.  Could have something to do about a lawn full of clover and violets I suppose... It can be dangerous work collecting your dinner!

 

At least I learned an important lesson when I was three:  no matter how fuzzy they look, don't pet the bumblebees - life lessons folks!

I have been painting so much, but it's all proof of concept for the next video I'm working on. (Proof: That green can be mixed solely using yellow and black - not only a dull khaki green as here, but also bright lime green. It's pretty cool.)

 

 

Really?  Wow.  I've known the black and yellow make olive drab trick for ever; my father used to use it to paint model airplanes in the 1940s, and has an Army story from the early 50s about using it and getting everyone in some mild trouble over some gloss OD helmets.

Taco Bell has a new soda flavor.

 

Best described as Rotting Mango Mountain Dew. :zombie:

That sounds appealing.

 

I've seen a few bumble bees, but I've already seen waaay too many wasps. Those bar stewards can go burn in the fires of Hades.

Same here, wasps are already out... Thankfully not in force, but still. 

 

Some have been a tad too interested in my work truck...
