If there are any dentists who are reading my blog (who am I kidding, there's all of 3 people reading this and I'm one of them - aaaaanyways), are you guys taught in University to mention your patient's first name a certain amount of time per visit? Honestly. I mean, I just met my dentist and she's calling my name out more often then my mom used to when I was out playing with my friends and it was dinner time. "Okay Daniel, I will now be looking at your molars. Very good Daniel, but are you flossing every day Daniel? Daniel, here's a new toothbrush Daniel, you're doing great Daniel. Daniel Daniel Daniel.
She even asked me if I preferred Dan or Daniel. Guess what? I prefer you shut the fuck up and clean my teeth [that's harsh - Ed. ... Oh wait, I'm the editor].
Even the Receptionist is acting like she's my long lost cousin and dropping the personal touch, "Oh hi Daniel!" "Sure Daniel, we can change that for you" "Look forward to seeing you Daniel!" She dropped my name five times in a 30 second call.
Not to sound like a Seinfeld episode, but dentists are always going into these deep conversations with you and expect some kind of reply... When your mouth is full of dental machinery. You're drilling into my fricken head, I don't want to discuss my latest job woes. The worst is that it drives me crazy because it is usually the most engaging questions that I really really want to answer, but can't (obviously).
Last thing about dentists: I can't think of anyone who makes you feel like you've accomplished so much through positive reinforcement for simply laying back in a chair with your mouth open wide. You'd think I'd have cured cancer while I'm getting my mouth x-rayed and brought Peace on Earth while she's freezing my mouth with about fifteen injections by hearing her go on about what a brave and awesome patient I am. I think she had an orgasm last time I responded with "Ugh" and a thumbs up when she asked me how I was doing.

And in the "What in the fuck?!" department, this website about how to hug a girl who is taller than you is messed up...
A few excerpts:
"Be careful when you hug, and make sure the girl wants to hug back; you don't want to give the impression that you are hugging her just to put your head in her breasts."
"If you must hug ensure that the side of your head is located on the outside portion of one breast to keep yourself from sliding between them or staring at them."
"If you have enough confidence and plan to be hugging a taller girl a lot get comfortable with the idea of breasts in your face. It may be possible to ignore them."

After uselessly telling the world that Harry Potter character Dumbledore was gay, J.K. Rowling (author of the books) will now reveal that Ron was Black, Hermione was Chinese and Hagrid was into bestiality so that we can all be happy at how diversified and progressive her characters have now become, months after the release of the last book in the series...
Wow, doesn't that make the 27 people who haven't read the Harry Potter series want to rush out and buy them?
I hope Dumbledore wears rainbow coloured robes in the movie.

I bought a CD today (yeah, I know... In this day and age). What CD? The new Foo Fighters 'Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace', I actually got it off iTunes.
So why, you ask, would I purchase a download?
Firstly, I like the band. But I'll have to admit that there's more to it than that. If you pre-ordered the CD off iTunes, you got a chance to get in the pre-sale when they come to do a concert Toronto.
See, it's that kind of different approach that will "save" the music industry. You can't just offer a CD anymore, you have to offer some perks that can't be obtained "by other means".

Hockey is finally back! The Habs played the Pens today in the first pre-season game and it was a great one (Canadiens won 3-2 in OT).
I'm also starting a hockey pool at work, and some dude at work gave me this mini Habs jersey.
