yes, it’s been a full week

some might say that this has been a rather full week for me…here’s a brief rundown:

  • i got a nasty cold on the weekend, turning my nose into a faucet as is the norm. it didn’t go away until wednesday.

  • i ended up with a lovely occurrence of sialolithiasis, a condition in which my saliva duct has a stone form in it, and then get infected. the stone’d been there for months and months, but once it got infected my salivary gland started swelling up anytime i ate, and never really receded. this started on monday morning.
  • on monday afternoon i had a job interview with york university’s IT department. note that i arrived at the interview with a runny nose, fuzzy head and enormous gland under my jaw. i still managed to kick some ass though, on both the oral and practical parts.
  • i went to an after hours clinic on monday night to see about getting some antibiotics for my sialolithiasis. the doctor had never seen such a thing before, and said that he wished he had a digital camera. i was less than confident about his diagnosis.
  • i spent tuesday doing the last of the job interviews at work. i think we interviewed 50 students this month. it was mind numbing.
  • i was offered the york job on tuesday night, pending a reference check. eating was still not good to my gland.
  • york called my references on wednesday. my coworkers apparently like me. that made me happy.
  • i went to the er late in the afternoon to see if they could do anything for me. they scheduled an appointment for me to have it removed by an ear/nose/throat doctor.
  • the job offer was made official on thursday. start date: may 2nd. wow, soon.
  • also thursday: my specialist said “wow, look at that. hey diane, you gotta see this!” in reference to the stone under my tongue. that gave me a good feeling. he cut it out. it was enormous. happily, i can now eat somewhat.
  • tonight: hidden cameras at elixir with mitch.

so, yeah. full week.

    listen, so long as it’s not 15 year olds arriving here after searching for circumsized (or cercumsized for that matter), i’m pretty happy.
