i started the morning with a thin layer of programming (for SRM), followed by some lunch in front of the television (leftover calamari and salad), then i spent most of the day washing the windows and vacuuming the forced air heating vents, in preparation for the winter (10 windows, 7 vents). i wanted to turn on the heat today, but i still have a few more windows to wash and a few more vents to vacuum. in the late afternoon with the weather still nice, i went to cvs to pick up a prescription, followed by the somerville target to buy some detergent and an electric toothbrush (a braun oral-b 950tx). i have nothing against regular toothbrush but i heard that electric toothbrush get your teeth cleaner, and it seems more and more people use them, so i wanted to experience it for myself. when i came back to cambridge i made sure i parked the motorcycle on the other side of the street since there'd be street cleaning tomorrow on my side. once the game started at 5pm, i was a captive audience member. during a commercial break i was able to race into the kitchen and microwave a chicken pot pie for dinner.
preparing for bed, i used the electric toothbrush for the very first time. it feels just like going to the dentist. i was disoriented at first, i'm not used to sticking vibrating objects into my mouth. also the fact that i don't have to brush anymore (it's more of a pointing tool) will also take some time to get used to. afterwards my teeth did feel cleaner, but that might be a placebo effect. it does spice up the boring task of teeth brushing though. now i want to brush as often as possible just so i can play with the electric toothbrush!
