Proud of this one

Stats ⌘Stats ⌘

Just ran my first 10KM in ages. Slow but good progress. I’ve been struggling to go for a good distance due to pain issues, and it feels really good to have worked through them to the point where I can do 10K. Proud of this one.

That’s the Tooth

I’ve been struggling with tooth pain for more than a year and a half. I just went to a new dentist today, who much like my old dentist couldn’t find anything wrong with my teeth.

I’m being referred to a specialist to see if it’s a lingering issue from the root canal I had last year to try to resolve this problem, or if it’s something else. My money is on something else since the root canal didn’t help. But what do I know, I’m not a dentist.

Anyway the struggle with constant tooth pain continues, and it’s taking all the joy out of things I love, like eating ice cream and breathing cold air. Cross your fingers for me that this next guy knows what’s up.

The last thing I wrote

Was a big long post about running that I neglected to share, and now having read this McSweeney’s piece I’m glad I didn’t

Live Thoughts while Watching White Christmas

  • Having a show in a combat zone is very stupid!
  • Thanks for saving my life! Call me if you need anything! But don’t actually call though, okay?”
  • 10 days off with pay for Christmas? What is this world.
  • Bing Crosby’s character is definitely at least 40, unmarried, and in show business. Would really NOBODY at the time have assumed he was gay?
  • How dare you make me famous and rich, I don’t have enough free time to myself!”
  • Freckle Faced Hanes, the DOG FACED BOY?!
  • This plot is really bad but also it doesn’t matter because watch Vera Ellen dance
  • Why do they do this sister act, why don’t they just do one of their own songs? Is dressing up like women that hilarious in the 50s?
  • Where is the SNOW? Ah movies before climate change was a thing
  • The housekeeper is such a bitch, I love her.
  • They must skip this Minstrel number when they show this on TV right?
  • Goodnight Judy”, face full of perfect stage makeup
  • So nice of Bob to sing Betty a lullaby
  • The wordplay in this is consistent but always unexpected. Bleached charger”.
  • The listening on the phone to things you shouldn’t overhear and getting it wrong” is my least favourite plot in anything ever but especially this.
  • By let’s think about it over a sandwich” I assume Phil means while I eat one” because Judy clearly never eats.
  • What a jaunty ascot Bob has on in this scene.
  • Bob at the train station trying to make sure it can handle … trains? This seems like not his job.
  • Vera Ellen’s WAIST my GOD
  • Weirdsmobile”
  • All the creative ways they find for Rosemary Clooney not to dance
  • Betty if you just asked Bob directly we would not be in this mess.
  • No one is getting money for this!” Such a regular thing to say on TV
  • It took 15,000 men to take my place” how long has Emma been with General Waverly anyway.
  • They threw me a musical number! Now all my problems are solved!
  • No matter how many times I’ve seen this I’m still delighted when it magically snows at the end.
  • And the dresses. And the kiss. And the song. It’s a great end to a ridiculous movie.
