and this happy little fellow is called the gouger

i just went to the dentist for the first time in about ohh… 2 years. my old dentist wasn’t the best – she used outdated techniques and it was painful and not nice. the new dentist (which i found just because it’s so close to my house) seems super fantastic. i went in this morning to get a whole wack load of digital pics of my head and mouth taken. i had a root canal in grade 12 and my old dentist never put a crown on it, so it’s worn away and chipped over the years (since it’s a dead tooth). they’re going to put a porcelain crown on there and repair some other stuff. i feel so out of style with my silver/mercury fillings, the thing to have is tooth coloured fillings – who knew.

The FOX is doing their annual Santa Fox Food Drive. Every year they would go around to various locations in the lower mainland and collect food and donations for the Food Bank in that area. This year (I was listening on Monday) they’re at the Superstore on Grandview and Renfrew all week. Proceeds will benefit the three surrounding cities – Vancouver, Burnaby and New West — but hang on a second — in the past, Surrey – consistently – has had the biggest support and one-day totals out of anywhere. So I was wondering what was going on – why were they not out that way this year?…Then I floated down the radio dial to Z95 and found out they’re doing a mobile campaign this year and Surrey is their stop today. Phew. Okay – now I won’t have to go on a rampage. I mean it’s important that the Food Banks in all regions get support, but I was slightly wondering why Surrey was off the Fox’s list this year. As long as someone is covering them (and Delta too), and as long as people don’t specifically need a radio special or on-location broadcast to get them out there to support a local charity (at Christmas time or any other time of year) then i think we’ll be on our way to being okay…although there’s always more that can be done:

Z95.3 Food Bank Fill-Up and Santa Fox Food Drive
Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society
YWCA – Presence of Peace
Union Gospel Mission

    […] And for the 19th straight year, local radio station CFOX will be on location at Superstore taking your cash and non-perishable food donations as a part of the Santa Fox Food Drive. This is what sparked a blog post last year [miss604]. I figured the theme of the post (minus the moments at the dentist) was a good idea. A roundup of links to give you that extra nudge, in case you wanted to show some support this holiday season and didn’t know how. […]
