under the knife, the drill, the chisel......

for better or worse i'm going to the dentist tomorrow. actually an oral surgeon to have a long overdue wisdom tooth pulled, rather yanked or chopped or whatever, i am a bit scared but ready. over the last few weeks it has become quite unbearable, ecspecially when my tylenol wears off. i have this love/hate relationship with the dentist. i know i have put going off for so long, or rather i was too busy getting wrecked to go, so in a way i've had it coming.

i have been having an amazing time being back in duluth though. catching up with really good old friends, many i haven't seen in a long time. getting caught up on my ammends, tying up old loose ends and just being around. i have even gone out a few times, sometimes its weird to be in my old haunts, but really the prospect of getting tosssed just really isn't an option anymore and a great part of that fear feeels lifted.

to counter that i even went to a meeting this week here and even made a day trip to minneapolis. got to check in with my sponsor, go to my home group, check in with old friends and people who mean a lot to me and really, really helped me out in the beginning when i was struggling to get my feet back on the ground and get my bearings straight. thankfully friday was also my 14th month anniversary, time sure flies.

for a little icing on my minneapolis cake i got to see a LIFE CHANGING (note the caps) exhibit at the minneapolis inst. of arts. if you have a chance go and see the alec soth showing of portraits up right now in the maep gallery on the first floor. its free and utterly fantastic!!! soth is somebody i met at a non-profit photo gallery i used to work at back in 1999, and in the last two years his work and career have taken off in such a monumental way. i'm watching ever so closely, i want that too.

well i guess i'll be sucking down malts and smoothies for the next couple of days, laying around on the couch watching movies and kicking back........

okay this is gross, but i'm going to the dentist after not going for like a few years. disgusting, i know. i love getting my teeth cleaned - i just never had a dentist in duluth so i never made an appointment. plus my mom used to do that for me. anyway, a wisdom tooth came in since my last visit to the dentist - will they yank it even if i want to keep it? because i like it.
