The Tooth Doesn't Hurt

Saw my dentist today. He says there's no structural damage to the crown, so he smoothed off one edge of the broken porcelain cover and are going to keep an eye on it.

Since daisy_knotwise was off work today and I was home early because of the trip to the dentist, we took advantage of the situation to run out and pick up a Christmas tree from the lot we've been going to for the last several years. So there's a Frazer fir in our living room thawing out. By morning, we should be able to start hanging ornaments.

Hurricane Epsilon

Well, Epsilon has defied predictions and intensified to hurricane status, making it the sixth recorded instance of a December hurricane. There's a nice picture here on Jeff Masters' blog where he notes that there's about a 40% chance that we'll see Tropical Storm Zeta materialize next week in the Caribbean.
