state possums

according to http://www.enchantedlearning.com/usa/states/georgia/, the state of Georgia has a state possum. i wonder how many other states have state possums. Colorado does not. we are not cool.

dentists, shock me shock me

so i went to the dentist this morning, and sort of enjoyed the experience. i finally fled the rath of the old sadist/tooth nazi that called himself Doctor of Toothestry, and found a decent practice. the obvious downfall was that my appointment was at 7:00 AM and as a new patient, i had to get there early. while i've never enjoyed sitting in a plastic chair as a hygentist prods about in my mouth with the dreaded hook (ironic, as Bill Cosby states "Dentists tell you not to pick your teeth with any sharp metal objects...then you sit in their chair...") but the hygentist, Carol, was pretty nice, and not overtly vicious. then i had a series of xrays with a really nasty contraption that, though scraped the inside of my gums, apparently transfered the pictures directly onto a computer screen. brilliant, i say. the dentist, a very adorable asian lady greeted me and seemed so happy to talk to me, exclaiming how exciting it was i was planning to study abroad, even if it disrupted my dental care. she was just too cute, and told me the brilliant news, NO CAVITIES! though my last "dentist" left me with the fact i had two. i never got them filled, and obviously they didn't disapear, so apparently the sadist/tooth nazi is a crackpot as well. i wonder how many other "cavities" i had that weren't really. grr.

but the final brightside: i chose this dentist's office because my sister had gone to them before her insurance changed and had the experience of meeting Mr. Hottt Dentist. i saw him working on some guys crowns next to me before leaving. and Holy Hottt Dentist, Batman! i love the dentist office now.

i'm not obsessed or anything...

i've reread specific passages from Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince numerous times since i finished the book. i paid $2.50 for the "Hedwig's Theme" ringtone on my phone. the picture i took at the movie theatre of the new Harry Potter movie poster is my cell phone background. i've watched the trailer of the movie so many times i've lost count. and, creepily of all, i've been treating www.danradcliffe.co.uk like it's my homepage. but it's not like i have a problem or anything.
