Naturally I had a big presentation today

This morning, as I was getting ready for today's big client presentation, I lost a tooth. It just popped off. Fortunately it was a porcelain crown, so there's no pain. It was embarrassment I was worried about. I didn't want to look like Hillbilly Gal as I stood at the head of the conference table, presenting new ways to excite consumers about investing in mutual funds while I had a conspicuous hole in my smile.

Since the tooth is lower left, towards the back, it doesn't show when I talk. The crown is now safely in a little blue case along with my teeth whitening tray. Hopefully my dentist will be able to just affix it back in place.

In the meantime, I suppose I should be glad that the presentation went off without a hitch, and grateful that life throws these little curves at me so I'm never bored.

I'd like to think this is true

You Are Humor

You love to laugh at life, and if possible, get others to laugh along with you.

You believe there's always a humorous side to everything. And your sense of humor ranges from upbeat to very dark.

You are outrageous and very honest. You're often the only one willing to say what everyone else is thinking.

You are witty and verbally talented. You like to play with words and say things in interesting ways.

09 August Happiness Challenge -- Day 19

Thursday. The Beatles: Rock Band. I saw a preview on MTV and am so impressed. Not only because of the quality (it shows them in an updated but delightfully trippy Yellow Submarine kinda way, and the songs come from the original masters), but because it means that the Lads remain relevant and are being embraced by ever younger fans. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
