New Year's Eve

at 5:30pm because I'm an old tired bastard. :)

Happy New Year from the Old Tired Bastards at The Thing of the Moment

Check me out being ripped off by Wired Magazine.

That is my unflattering image of Senator Olympia Snowe who I secretly think is one of our hottest US Senators (Until former EPA Administrator Carol Browner decides to run for Senate)

Wired apparently thinks flickr means FREE STOCK PHOTOS, although they did give me a little credit and a link to my stupid ass flickr page.


Update: Oh, it was actually only SOME rights reserved. My apologies and appreciation to Wired Magazine. Hehheh.

A Complete Listing of the Emergency Dental Services in Bangor, Maine

Or offices offering complete dental services around the Holidays.

That's right.

So if you are here, Gentle Viewer, because you have Googled this expecting to actually find some, you might as well go back to your emails notifying you of your massive Nigerian cash awards because trust me, you'll get THAT first.

I feel your pain. Honest.

Number 20, The Christmas Tooth

Regular Gentle Viewers may have noticed a lull in the action here at The Thing of the Moment and in the various photomemes that I haven't been participating in this week because of EXCRUCIATING AND HELLISH PAIN OF UNKNOWN SOURCES THAT WOULD KILL LESSER MEN. I have a new dentist because the old one at the practice where I go skipped town. Now new dentist doesn't know me from any of the other apparent drug addicts who call her daily faking tooth pain and she sent me to yet another 3rd dentist who specializes in pulling teeth and said everything should be fine after that.

So above you can see that I did as I was told and am STILL IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN OF STILL UNKNOWN SOURCES THAT WOULD KILL LESSER MEN. So in between drafting letters to the dental board and calling the answering service and being told that I either have to wait until Jan 2nd or go to an Emergency Room (!!!! Yeah, there is apparently no dentist on call, THAT is the emergency) I post for you and Gentle Viewers tmt, spacemanaxdahl and ana a little of what you really want to see.

But if I were a REAL MAN I'd just pull them myself like Crazy Tom, the Carnie Self Dentist here.

Dear GV Anonymous, If we are lucky, yes.

Gah...never a moment's peace around here.
