Nouns, Schmouns...  
HalfshellHusband tried to convince me last night that the orthodontist wanted to pull out some of our son's molars. That made no sense—they'd been part of the orthodontia, and you don't randomly remove molars. Plus, they were done coming in. Wisdom teeth are a different story. People remove those all the—

HalfshellHusband: "Wisdom teeth, yes. Wait, what did I say before?"

I can't remember if our daughter is supposed to get all of hers out too (and we're just waiting for them to get closer to the surface), or whether only some are coming out. She had two teeth pulled for braces, which still kind of puzzles me. I had four bicuspids removed when I was a kid, because in those days, all the teeth that "lined up" in the bite went if there wasn't enough room. I don't see how having more on the top or bottom could be good, but that's what she wound up with. Possibly, two wisdom teeth will be added as well.

We might get some rain tomorrow, which would be welcome despite leading to garage-biking for me. It would have been a wonderful weather for a ride today, but my boss has scheduled his weekly meeting right in my early-afternoon bicycling window. I regret it every Wednesday. :(

Friday, though... that has outdoor possibilities. *fingers crossed*

Questions I want answered without endless dinking around on Google: who wrote the theme song to XYZ (eg., "Battle Creek" and "Backstrom" at the moment), and are those real songs I can buy somewhere? If not, WHY not? The answer to the first is Brandan Calhoon and apparently "No." The second? Still looking. :(

are you enjoying Battle Creek? I'm liking it more than I expected to.

we've had enough rain for the last few weeks that I haven't had to start regularly watering the lawn yet. :)

We really like Battle Creek, and expected to out of sheer love of "Mayhem." I love his crabbiness, and Milt's sincere optimism and noble nature, and Kal Penn is just a bonus. :D

We so badly need the rain here, it isn't funny. Water rationing is forecast, and it's always a sore spot. Sacramento is dry and hot, but also at the confluence of two rivers. SoCal wants us to ship all our water down to their desert. And agriculture uses the vast majority of all of it, and just wastes it. Flood irrigation. In desert climates. /o\

I didn't even know Kal Penn was in it, so definitely a bonus there.

the way water is "managed" in dry and desert environments is so often downright confuzzling. I know it comes down to money much (or most) of the time, but that adds to the frustration. :o
