Poor Ross has had a killer toothache for a little while now, but it got so bad today that he had to bite the bullet (ha!) and go to the dentist. We went to a place in Baker Street that specialises in 'cosmetic dentistry', so the guy tried really hard to get Ross to agree to a filling and crown and the whole shebang, but in the end he just got it pulled. I was going to post a photo, but it's just kind of gross and unnecessary.

Anyway, we came home and decided to watch new Futurama (!) but Ross fell asleep during the opening credits. I had to wake him up a while later, because he was drooling blood - ew ew ew. I guess he should have been sleeping on the other side. He's all better now, though! 

Okay, TMI over.


So last night we had a big family dinner, and I made eggplant parmigiana! Yay for Jamie Oliver recipes - it turned out great! I will definitely be making it again sometime, and I've added to my list of awesome vegetarian dishes. 

I've always been a bit weirded out by eggplant - it seems like there's so many rules on how you're supposed to prepare it - salting/soaking/rinsing it beforehand to draw out the bitterness? Jamie Oliver didn't mention it, and it turned out fine. From now on I'm just going to treat it like all the other vegetables. Equality for aubergines!


Tomorrow we're finishing off the recordings. Ross has borrowed the van from work, so we're taking the drumkit and fixing a few bits and pieces... I'm supposed to be playing a clarinet line that I've never played before, I should definitely do some practicing tonight!

Apparently we will have to have a break at three when the England vs. Germany game is on - although I don't know why we're bothering to watch it, Paul the psychic German octopus has already said that Germany's going to win!
