Skittles and M&Ms

Skittles and M&Ms have been my mid-morning and afternoon snacks for the past two days. And my lunch today. I actually had a pretty good lunch at first - this crab and shrimp louie salad from Trader Joe's - but my upper right molar is KILLING me - and eating the salad felt impossible. Something happened to the tooth - not sure what. I crunched pretty hard on a tortilla chip over the weekend, which resulted in a really intense pain, and now I pretty much can't have any contact of any kind with that bad tooth. It's hard even to talk - you'd be amazed at how many words force your top teeth and bottom teeth to touch. Salad is particularly difficult to eat because it's so...thin. Like when I'm chewing salad, there's very little padding between my upper teeth and bottom teeth. However, Skittles and M&Ms are much thicker and chewier, which make chewing much less painful. It's ironic, because a diet of Skittles and M&Ms probably causes more tooth pain in general than prevent.

I came home and thought Pig had blood all over her right front paw. It looked like blood - all caught between her toes and under her nails. I spent a lot of time petting and consoling and examining - I couldn't figure out where the cut was. Max came home and told me that she took a tumble during their walk today - I immediately assumed that's how she got her bloody foot. She must have cut herself! And then he said it wasn't her blood - and I immediately assumed that she stepped in a pool of someone else's blood! And then I immediately assumed we both got contaminated with the HIV! Turns out, she stepped in some rotten fruit - what kind, I don't know - maybe a pomegranate? Well I guess she was trying to eat it, and then tripped over it or something, and ended up with a stained red paw. Poor Pig. But at least she's ok.

Back to Blogging...

Over the weekend, I set up a website for our wedding. It's pretty cool and has these neat tools like "Request Reception Music" where people can enter songs they want to dance to at our wedding. I kind of doubt anyone will use it but I think it's fun anyway. I also added a wedding blog. I figured it'd be nice to keep track of the wedding planning experience and the run up to The Big Day (just 278 days to go!) It was real nice to just - I don't know - write about stuff that was on my mind. Of course, I have to keep it more wedding specific, which then made me miss this particular long abandoned blog where I really was free to talk about anything. Or more like nothing. So, maybe I'll start writing here again too.

In setting up the website, I had to look for a lot of pics of Max and me. Now, the two of us have been together an almost retarded amount of time. Nine years in February. Looking over the pics, a few observations can be made:

1.) I look better with long hair.
2.) I look better when I'm about 10 lbs thinner.
3.) Neither of us look good making the stupid open-mouth "Max" face.

Unfortunately, neither #1 nor #2 can really be fixed immediately. But, #3 can. Right now, I am NOT making the stupid open-mouth "Max" face.
