Another unintentional nap, this one probably due to post traumatic exhaustion, and when I woke up my needle-jabbed jaw was barely movable. I've never had dental work leave me this sore before. I suppose I'll have to keep exercising the jaw to keep it loosened up.

I was never a fan of those sword-and-sandal movies which were a staple of the Italian movie industry in the 1950's and 1960's, though I saw a few of them on television.
Thus I knew nothing of Dan Vadis, an American actor who appeared in many of them. I might have seen him in one or another, but had no idea who he was. I also didn't know until tonight, when reading the message boards at, that he went to the same high school and intermediate school that I attended, though quite a few years earlier. I find it oddly amusing that one of the few people from my old neighborhood to become famous did so as a bit of celluloid beefcake.

Speaking my high school, it now has its own Wikipedia page, with a couple of decent photographs. I didn't much like high school, but I always liked that Depression Modern building.

Another discovery tonight: The Los Angeles Almanac, which certainly lives up to its calim of being "The most comprehensive Internet source for facts and statistics about Los Angeles County!" Naturally, I like their history section best.

Thanks, Internet, for providing distraction from the sore jaw.
