Weekend in the OC

Albert and I made a weekend trip to the OC to spend time with our families. I ate a lot of good food, mostly Thai food and seafood!

Rice with "sour curry" and "jungle curry."

My mom had rice with spicy curried pork and "bland soup." (It's literally called bland soup in Thai, but it's still delicious and a great counterpoint to spicy food.)

Mussels, opilio crab (can you hear the theme for Deadliest Catch?), slipper lobster, sausage, potatoes, and corn at the Cracked Crab in Pismo Beach.

My terrible version of Mr. Crabs from memory.

Visit the Dentist

So after ~10 years of not visiting the dentist, I finally decided to go. Prognosis? I need to stop grinding my teeth (already knew that), I need to get my wisdom teeth taken out (already knew that), and I have two cavities. But here's the kicker...THESE ARE THE FIRST CAVITIES I'VE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE (SO FAR)! Oh, I have pretty thick enamel. So, all in all, not a bad time at the dentist.

Teeth cleaning is next week, fillings and extraction is in the future.

And since this entry is tooth related, here's a link to one of the cutest blogs on the interwebs: My Milk Toof.
