There's no way around it. Going to the dentist just isn't fun. No matter how much gas they give you, no matter how nice they are, even though you get to listen to KTRU on headsets while the drilling is going on.... It's just not fun. Sigh.
Both of these are from ResearchBuzz. I've just discovered AmphetaDesk (which works a lot better on my pc at work than on my Mac at home, but I'm way too lazy to try to figure out why) which is a great way to keep up with blogs and news and stuff. Now I even occasionally find a tidbit before Mark does (but not very often).
