One of my fillings has decided to part company with me. I'm going to book an emergency appointment at my dentists tomorrow, till then life carries on.
Edit: Made an appointment by phone and it barely phased me, which is a definite improvement over the sinking feeling of doom that I usually experience. I rehearsed what I wanted to say with Idoha beforehand and I'm also grateful to her for making me see that it isn't necessarily the end of the world if you make a mistake.
I broke a streak of two months without gambling last night. I think it's because looking at Hacker News's summer reading list made me depressed, since half the non-fiction books were about why humans can't be trusted to make decisions for themselves. Even if I didn't argue with that premise, I always wonder why the solution is to have humans' decisions made by other humans, as if they were magically above human error.
Sometimes I wish for an alien invasion as karmic payback to all the world's governments, but apparently none of the aliens want a piece of this shitshow. That proves that aliens are rational, at least.
