If there were money to sustain that lifestyle, it would not be too bad. [] I do not want to work. [] Good thing I still study. []

Spoken like someone who has never had a root canal. []

Well, let's see... when I was ten, I had to have a tooth pulled to make room for a palette expansion device so I could later get braces. Fortunately, my dentist must have been going a little senile, as he pulled one of my permanent teeth without any anaesthetic at all.

The expansion device itself kept me on a liquid diet three days a week for two years because it's too painful to chew after you ratchet it up.

Then the braces themselves, which were affixed to me by the cheapest guy around because my mother didn't have insurance at the time. I would later learn that he wasn't even a certified orthodontist, and my teeth look five times worse than they did before the braces. One tooth was shoved out of place so badly that it has given me a crossbite that prevents me from chewing properly on the left side of my face, makes sleep difficult, and has actually exposed the dentin on one root, thereby stripping the protection of enamel from that particular spot.

And anyway, dentists stick sharp metal things IN YOUR MOUTH. What's not to hate? []

Ouch! But never mind the Dentist, I'm off to the Oral Hygienist, the person who actually mucks about with your teeth tomorrow, 10:00! That's worse!

Oh, why are you talking about dentists when I'm just about to see one? [] Thankfully it's just a check-up (but I fear what she may say [] ).

Exactly!

My story involves a dentist not knowing that the tooth he had pulled out was a baby tooth, and I still had an adult tooth to come... yet he gave me a frickin' filling! [] And, of course, I had major pain later. []


[edit] 4 hours later... I'm back! And the teeth are all good! [] *drinks lots of Coke, and chomps down on some Snakes* []

Now quit dissing cars, people. [] Since Wetty isn’t around, I’ll try to explain it.

An excellent car is a work of art. It is more an extension of the soul than the body. With tiny twitches of the hands or feet, the machine leaps into action, moving faster than any living animal. The body is stationary, strapped into a seat. Yet the car twists, turns, and growls like a primal animal. It is very visceral, and the joys are an instinctual joy of movement, speed and sound.

The experience is primal, and the heart races with adrenaline while the mind flashes with images and thoughts that our ancestors felt but modern Man has lost with boring commutes in busses or mass-market Minis.

I’ll tell you what, Inc. When Eled and I finally come to Paris to visit, I’ll rent a Ferrari for the day. We’ll make Eled wait at Sacre-Coeur and you and I will start from the Porte Dauphine. We’ll re-enact C’etait un rendezvous. When we’re done, I bet you change your mind about cars (if I don't kill us, that is). []

Well, I guess I never had any major problems related to the dentist. So it goes.

When I got my wisdom teeth removed, though, the second operation took an hour. And it doesn't bother me that the dentist has stuff in my mouth (yet I still copiously vomitted afterwards both times in his office [] )

I have a very weird mouth. When I close my mouth, my lower teeth actually touch my palate. A few years ago, a so-called orthodontist gave me some kind of mouth piece to get rid of that problem. The only thing it did was making my gums bleed like crazy.
Aside from the fact I never went to see that woman again ( [] ) I don't have a problem with dentits.

I'm sorry about you, though. Hope you'll get better []
Good that your teeth are fine, Brae !

Thorin - I think I could slightly change my mind when I learn how to drive. Seems to be essential to appreciate fully cars.
Good call on the Ferrari idea ! [] []
I actually only went to Sacré-Coeur once []
But don't come to Paris while I'm away []

Well, today is the day.

Long ago when my mom decided to homeschool us, she joined a local homeschool support group. We met every Friday (during the school year) for classes taught by the moms (or dads or graduated students, ect). Everything from crafts and acting to math, Spanish, and anatomy. Unfortunately, that group got bleh, so our family split off with a few other families to start a new group. This new group rocked.

This year, the last three original families (including ours) are graduating their youngest kids. New people will be taking over the school. And today is the last day of classes []

I don't know what my mom's gonna do with herself...She's been leading the worship service every week since we began. She taught two classes every week until they added another hour, and then she taught three. It's been awesome for her...

Aww... maybe your mom could do part-time teaching at a school? I think she'd be great. She's such a cool mom. []

Thorin - hey if Inc' is lame and doesn't like the Ferrari idea, Nick and I would be MORE than happy to take you up on that "Rent a Ferrari for the Day" idea. [] *drools*
Can it be this one please?

[] []
OM NOM NOM NOM
So delicious!

Or, actually can we use this car instead?

[]

Speaking of cars, I have to go to the dealership today and haggle with them to get me the little nothing of a hyundai accent coupe down to 6500, if I can. In my opinion, 8000 is WAY too much for this little thing. Sure, it has low mileage but it's a HYUNDAI. That should dock me 2000 on the spot! Hehe.

Man I hate needing a car when I'm poor. []

They wouldn't take my offer. Bastards. I know they could have gone lower. They couldn't have paid that much for that car. Ugh.

I hate being poor.

Yay! Time for one of the three grandest road cycling events - the Giro d'Italia! []

I will follow it as much as I can, as the 3 weeks extends across my exam period (it ends the day preceding my last exam, i.e. June 1st). []

3 weeks of combined stress and joy. []

No. Which is why I was unsure about using that word. [] But it illustrates the dilemma an odrinary student would have suffered. []

Hope things work out, Lills []

My sister is watching Pirates of the Caribbean....FRENCH DUB [] [] [] I really want to watch the REAL one...Jack Sparrow sounds half asleep []

Hey, overseas people, are dubs of English movies popular, or do people try to watch the films in their original language (with subtitles, if they don't speak it)?

In Norway, all movies (except kiddie-stuff) are in the original language, with Norwegian subtitles.

I watched that very film on work this summer with bosnian subtitles. I may suppose they are doing the same as Norway.

Skiing in Austria, the films on TV was dubber. In Greece, there were subtitles.

E: For all except the former: This is just what I have encountered, there might be differences.

Norwegian subtitiles seem odd to me for some reason! Also a little Monty Pythonist! Anyway, I'm off to Brighton tomorrow. Not, Inc, because I am going to the Gay capital of Britain [] But because I am told that the weather is going to be extremely hot and I fancy a day by the seaside on my day off!

Thanks, Ney. I'll be looking at a PT Cruiser like this tomorrow:
 -
The buyers are selling it for a pretty reasonable price, but I just looked up the gas mileage on this thing and it's not great. [] Oh well.

In France, you can find most foreign movies both with subtitles or in French. I always choose the subtitles option, as most of my friends do, except my roomate - stupid girl []

E : forgot a word []
