Hooray for dentists!

I have the first of three appointments with my a dentist (my dentist got a staph infection in his hand or something and won't be back for a month or so) tomorrow morning at 10.

I feel like I'm falling apart, which is silly, I know, but with the whole kidney stone thing, and all these cavities (I know, I know, my own fault for not going to the dentist for nine years), it's kinda hard not to. I haven't been in the best of moods for the past couple weeks.

I was invited out to a thing at a bar tonight, a piano bar? Dueling pianos, if I remember correctly. A friend's birthday was today (Happy Birthday, Kris!) and a bunch of people were gonna be at the bar, but I just didn't feel up to it. I haven't been feeling very sociable ever since I first noticed blood in my piss. And then the dentist thing happened last week, and all I've felt like doing is sitting around the house reading or watchin' TV or movies. (I'm sure the weather is partly to blame, too, what with the single digit temps and still-too-early sunset.)

I'd like to go out and see my friends, but I don't imagine I'd be very good company right now. Just ask my parents, and they have to live with me. I'm hopeful that once this kidney stone is taken care of, I'll start to get my shit together again.

Regardless, it's nothing that will be getting fixed in one night, and I should get to bed so I can be up early enough to start laundry before heading over to get my teeth drilled, or however it is they fix cavities.

Incidentally, I watched The Departed tonight, after Grey's Anatomy, and it's still a great movie. I hope it wins oodles of Oscar awards.

However, there's one part that bugs me, and has bugged me since I saw it in the theatre: when Sullivan and Costello meet in the porno theatre, Costigan is there, because he tailed Costello from Costello's meeting with the Feds. And Costigan is sending and receiving text messages on his cell phone, which is understandably on silent. But then when Costigan follows Sullivan out of the theatre, to get a good look at him, his phone rings, alerting Sullivan to his presence.

So my problem is, when did Costigan switch the phone from silent to really-fucking-loud-ring? And why? Wouldn't he have kept it on silent? This is going to bother me until I get a chance to ask Scorsese or Bill Monahan (the writer) about it.
