    Four reasons why you didn't want to be me this last weekend.

    1. I was in San Francisco for four days.
    2. One of my back teeth broke clean in half and i had to have an emergency root canal on Friday.
    3. I spent the rest of the weekend in a (prescribed) Vicodin fog.
    4. Did I mention I was in San Francisco? Great place for a visit but far too many bums and trash wandering around, reminded me of London.

    Got better when I got home though, couple of packages from Midway waiting for me and fired up my Mac to see that the world hadn't ended while I was out of town.

    Glad to be back in the real world.

    Awful to have teeth trouble on a trip. That'll ruin it no matter where you are.

    I do, however, love both London and San Francisco, and have spent a good bit of time in both.

    Glad you survived the trip and made it home safe. And nothing like finding good stuff from Midway waiting for you.
    Cheers,
    Rod

    At last! Someone else out there who thinks London is a cruddy town!
    I have been there 3 times and I swear, every time I hated it more. Was a dingy little crappy town and the amount of bums, scum and punk rock types lurking around is amazing.

    In fact, having been around the world twice, on Uncle Sam's dime I might add, I have never found a place that I though even came close to America. I liked Greece and Australia but neither would be places I would rather live than here.
    And some of the places that everyone just wants to go to so bad, like Venice, are truly disgusting. Venice smells like a toilet, because it is. The canals are horrid. Used condoms and trash floating everywhere. But of course, they don't highlight that kind of stuff in the tourist magazines.

    Sorry to hear about the tooth, that is no good. But, glad you are back home and feeling better.

    Wink

    Oh San Fransicko.
    Bummer.
    Yep and nothing beats sinking the price of a nice AR15 into a root canal and a crown.
    My last root canal I would have been better off with a pair of pliers in front of my bathroom mirror.
    The Vicodian Fog sounds nice though.

    Yeah ...too bad that doesn't work on me usually. My last root...The dentist jumped more than me (they seem to get really squeemish when they realize local anesthetic ain't workin!) - unfortunately it usually doesn't! I always dread any minor injuries...Major ones, the brain puts you into shock and you don't feel it anyway...the little ones on the other hand...DOH!

    Root canal? San Francisco? Normaly they are a toss up, but you got both, lucky you.
