Our daughter had two wisdom teeth pulled yesterday, so she's feeling a little out of it and more sociable than usual. Swollen jaw, but not too much pain. Our son had four wisdom teeth removed about three weeks ago, and I can't believe I didn't mention it. He was miserable the first day, and kept complaining that the painkillers were worthless. Then, along about bedtime:
I've been teasing him about his Wild West pain-management techniques ever since. ;)
At work today, somebody unpacked something that involved styrofoam molding. I could not get the earbuds in fast enough—the screeching of styrofoam is to me what fingernails-on-the-blackboard is to other people. Yikes! As a result, though, I spent much of the day listening to various Khachaturian recordings. I love the violin concerto, and the lush, unusual chords and eastern melodies. Khachaturian was the only well-known Armenian classical composer, and there is a distinct sound to his music that is wonderfully different from the Russians, the Czechs, and the Hungarians.
On a side note, I do not see how the car wash guy on Breaking Bad is not Armenian (those eyebrows!). Imdb.com says the actor is Romanian, though, like the character (and those appear to be his actual eyebrows!) Still...
And in a final random note, our family movie this week was Mockingjay, Part I, and let me just say... I found that book to be the least interesting one in the trilogy, so why in the hell would you want to stretch it into two parts? Also? We now definitively know whether Jennifer Lawrence can make dolphin noises.
All right, it's getting late again. Off to bed.
