Bye Bye Wisdom Teeth

I got my wisdom teeth removed today. I've been wanting them gone for some time and I think my dentist, Dr. Kirk Larson (who I totally recommend!), wanted them gone even more. They didn't really bother me much, except that I thought they were pushing my other teeth around a little too much, negating all those years I wore braces for.

Check out this x-ray taken today. My lower wisdom teeth were pretty much lying sideways!

I really didn't want to be awake for the procedure so I opted for the general anesthesia and couldn't resist taking a selfie. 

I was out for what felt like a second and woke up looking like a walrus. The whole thing took less than half an hour and, frankly, I felt better than I look. I even got to keep the teeth that were pulled. Gross for you, pretty cool for me. :)

All in all, it was a good experience, but that might be the hydrocodone talking.

Drunk Confessions

Some people get get angry drunk, some people get sloppy drunk. I get honest drunk. Here are a few of my drunk confessions:

  1. I think Jon Bon Jovi is sexy
  2. I still listen to Debbie Gibson and Tiffany songs from time to time.
  3. I cried through the whole Glee tribute episdode to Cory Monteith.
  4. I still succumb to peer pressure… even at 35.
  5. I eat bananas with kraft singles.  
  6. Yes, I was the one who farted.
  7. I sometimes drink before noon. 
  8. When I'm on the elliptical, I picture myself with Jessica Alba's abs to motivate myself.

Email Stereotypes - Personal

You’re sending out a resume with your contact information or an email to a client. Here are 8 email addresses. Quick, what’s your first impression?

Apparently, your email account says a lot about you. At the top rung of the tech savviness hierarchy is an address at your own domain and at the very bottom: AOL. Gmail, Hotmail, and all others fall somewhere in between.

I have friends that seem to change their email address more often than their underwear and it was a pain keeping track of how to contact them. I didn’t want to be THAT person so I stuck with just one.

My first email address was from AOL (sometimes known as AO-hell) and it’s still my primary PERSONAL account. Of course, EVERYONE and their mother makes fun of me for using it. Still, the benefit is, if you had my address 15 years ago, you can still contact me today. Even though I always give out the AOL account I still get mail sent to Gmail, Hotmail, yahoo, etc. Shows you how much people pay attention to your address.

Now, I have 14 email accounts and all of them get funneled to my email client. I don’t pay attention to what address you’ve sent a message to. Unless you actually look at my address, you don’t know what address I’ve sent it from either. So, seriously, what’s wrong with an AOL account for personal correspondence?

I have a different opinion about using AOL mail for business, but we’ll get to that in the next post.

Hey, I'm Back!

Hello! Anyone still out there reading this thing? After almost a year long break from posting, I'm back.

I've been on vacation for the past two weeks and had planned to get so much accomplished, but that didn't happen. I wanted to clean and organize everything in my house, but I'm pretty sure the house is messier now than when I started. I wanted to watch a number of videos, but I haven't watched a single one. I did play a lot of FarmVille. I wanted to spend each morning jogging around the park and working out, but I think I gained 5 pounds in the past 14 days. Needless to say, I had a pretty good vacation.
