Dentist: Do I go or not?

I went to the dentist for an emergency appointment on Tuesday after getting an excruciating toothache, and left with two fillings. That night, the toothache returned. I waited a day in case it was due to the surgery, and yesterday contacted the dentist to ask for an appointment, which I have in 90 minutes. Since then, the toothache has vanished completely aside from some very minor lingering tenderness. Do I still go, or do I cancel?

Get me out of bed

What are your tips for getting out of bed in the morning? I'd like to hear your advise on going from first waking up to 'up and functioning' as speedily as possible. I'm always groggy (and if I'm honest, cranky) first thing, but OK after the first 10-15 minutes. So my main problem as I see it is that initial movement to the vertical (no pun intended). What methods have you used to get you staggering to the shower? I can't be too noisy, as my partner is legitimately sleeping in beside me, so I'm really interested in what you tell yourself or motivational thoughts that get you moving. [more inside]

Real estate lawyers: worth it for "normal" homebuying? (Ontario, Canada)

My wife and I are actively looking to buy a house in Kingston, Ontario and have been working with a real estate agent that we're quite happy with. What would the advantage of having a real estate lawyer in the mix be? We're considering modestly priced single-family homes, possibly with an added apartment, and not sure what value we'd get by adding about $1,000 in legal fees to the proceedings. [more inside]

Loosening my bobbin tension has no effect. Where am I going wrong?

When I switched to a different color, I had to increase the needle thread tension to the point of puckering the fabric just to pull up the bobbin thread enough to balance my stitches. Please help.

A slim, inexpensive, effective Samsung S5 case

I just upgraded my phone to a Samsung S5. I'd like to protect it, but since it's already on the big side I'd like to get a case that balances slimness and protection. I already have a screen shield on it, so something that plays nice with that would be appreciated. Price range is between 10 and 25 dollars. Availability on Amazon a huge plus.

Medical bill that never arived

I had a lab test a few days after my insurance changed. I hadn't been provided with new insurance cards at the time (despite begging for them over the phone), so the test was sent off without my insurance info, and I was told that a bill would be sent to me which I could then forward to my insurer for reimbursement. This was four months ago, and I still haven't received a bill. [more inside]

When is person A and person B's joint 100th birthday?

I have two friends, person A and person B. Person A was born 4 February 1971, so will be 44 soon. Person B was born 29 March 1959 and will be 56 soon. Until 4 February 2016 they will then collectively be 100 years old. But on what date between those two birthdays could they be considered exactly 100?. I want to send a joint 100th birthday card and I think, but I'm not sure, that it's the 2 or 3 March.

Tooth extraction and returning to normal teeth cleaning?

Three weeks ago I had a molar extracted. There were no complications with the extraction or the immediate aftermath.

Quietish place in Cambridge to watch the college football championship?

My otherwise-sensible partner has an inexplicable fondness for the Oregon Ducks and would like to watch them duke it out with Ohio State in the upcoming championship, but our internet is mostly down and we don't have a TV. Where in Cambridge/Somerville can we hang out and watch the game tonight (Monday)? The quieter the better; I have some sensory issues and don't do so well in noisy, crowded spaces. Near Central would be great, but we have a car and can roam farther afield if the roads stay decent.

Help me understand work habits. How much time is spent ...not working?

At work, no one has ever monitored my time or even told me what hours I should be working, so I'm not sure what is appropriate.
