Simon Baker is an independent consultant for the DBI (Dental Bureau of Investigation). Although not a dentist of any sort, he uses skills and knowledge from his former career as a successful psychic medium to help a team of dentists solve various decay crimes. His unorthodox and bizarre techniques for solving plaque crimes often clash with the dentists he helps. Ultimately, his input into the team's work is almost always instrumental in closing the case. (instrumental: I didn't even have to change that, it was already there!!!)

I am working my way, tooth by tooth, to a career as an authentic actor in medieval TV and film productions. Yesterday I had another filling replaced with a gleaming white one and my tooth rebuilt. Yes, the Six Million Dollar Tooth: we have the technology!! Anyway, before my tooth was fixed it hurt not a jot, after it was rebuilt it hurt like the blazes once the injections wore off. I had to take to my bed and when I put my head on the pillow my tooth throbbed. I am glad we live now and not way back when. When I was small it was gas mask delivery for anaesthetic at the dentist. My dentist is excellent though and my tooth is fine.
No hard food for at least three hours he said, and I hadn't had breakfast and it was 11-41am, so I had soup and then made myself some golden syrup dumplings. Just what I needed.
Today I went for my physiotherapy session. My shoulder had been shaping up very well until The Labradors were milling about under my feet and I stopped myself from falling over by using my left arm to grab a post outside. I am still improving and I had some acupuncture. I have never had acupuncture before and it Does Not Hurt. At all. On the other hand the Holman Clinic has some new needles for accessing my port. They hurt a lot. They hurt going in and going out and they don't work on my port, so they scrabbled around and found an old painless needle for me. I think everyone involved in making the new needle should have had to have it stuck in and out of them one hundred times before they signed off. I have cartooned and B&W-ed to save your sensibilities.
Now to the Chappa'ai or Stargate Cardigan refashion.
Then I am in two minds about what to knit next. Oh I have lots of cardigans in my Ravelry Queue, but I am torn between two of my own making:
- a new Doctor Who cardigan with two Daleks in profile facing outwards on the back and the new DW logo in relief on the front or
- the cardigan with paw prints on the yoke
Both would be raglan, with a circular yoke and ribbed sleeves and sides for shaping.

Peri has been teaching Lorelai Gilmore new tricks.
Gilly is here, having a pat and hoping for more food. I poached some pork and apple sausages so I will cook their cabbage and spinach in that to counteract the vegetable flavour. Now I am going to settle in on the couch, sans little quilt as yet and knit a cuff, and watch TV and go to bed early tonight. I do like Autumn, I sleep right through, no more listening to the ABC Overnights every night any more. Now Peri is here for a pat too, lots of waggy tails, lots of Labrador love.
