I found something out about myself recently. I have been drinking lots and lots of Mike's Light Hard Lemonade, and I was secretly freaking out. I couldn't go by a day without one. I thought I was on the verge of alcoholism. I figured it out. The hard lemonade was the only thing in the house to drink lately aside from water or skim milk. I bought myself some cases of Fresca, and now I don't even think about the Mike's. I just needed something tasty to drink. Duh, on my part.

I went to the dentist this morning for my 6 month check up. I had her drill and fill a dark spot on my back, right molar. It's been there for about 15 years. It wasn't getting any worse, but it couldn't possible get any better. It wasn't a cavity yet, so I figure that in preventing the cavity from truly forming, I can still tell people that I'm 33 and have never had a cavity. Being proactive is so great sometimes. So, I had my first incident with the dentist's drill today. Not terrible, but I feel like my mouth was used as a replacement for Stretch Armstrong's mouth...I'm feeling a little stretched out.

I also learned recently that Neaderthals may have died out due to their lack of agility and speed. This has nothing to do with anything, I just find it fascinating is all. I love the Discovery Science channel. It's my new favorite.

What's up in your world today?

Ha! I feel smarter already just from reading this! I love all the discovery channels with all my heart. I especially love Discovery Health, with all their surgery and trauma shows. I know, I'm morbid...as evidenced by my sweater selection!

Congrats on not having a cavity yet. I guess I'm getting them all on your behalf!

I felt the same way about beer that you felt about Mike's. I got a little freaked out too. I would have to buy some every week. Then I stopped buying it for a while as a test. It made all the difference. Now I buy it once in a while and I can keep it in my fridge without having one every day.

Since then I've tried to switch to white wine, but its just not the same. I love a cold beer, especially in the summer.

I thought Velociraptors killed the Neanderthals.
