Who wants a big bowl of dental decay?

Wednesday, June 9th, 2004 11:44 PM MDT

I have definitely inherited my mother's mother's mouth. She didn't have any teeth by the time she was 35. I went into the dentist's office yesterday, and I now have two more appointments this month to get fillings installed. Nine fillings. Nine. (Do you get the point yet?)

So now, they have me on prescription toothpaste, the elite Sonicare?, which is only sold to dental professionals for sale to their patients. Also, I have to start using alcohol-free mouthwash. It's all really a chore. A bore of a chore. I'm tired of it already, thanks to an overbearing mother. I'm trying to cut her some slack, considering she's going to end up spending over $2000 on my teeth this month. Ugh. Thanks, Mom, for sentencing me to over four hours in a dentist's chair.

Oh, and when my mouth is finally semi-healthy, I need to get surgery. That's right, I need to go to the oral surgeon and have my wisdom teeth removed, as they are coming in sideways and pushing my other teeth out of the way. So there's even more money for my parents, and even more time for me, with one large exception: I don't get to watch TV during my surgery, because they need to knock me completely out for the surgery, and they only need to give me Novocain to fill cavities, and my dentist has Satellite TV in every room! Yay! I can watch such great daytime TV as "The People's Court", "Judge Marilyn Monroe", "Regis and Kelly", and other great classics.

Anyway, since it is currently 0:44 MDT, I should probably go to bed, so I am fresh when I go out job hunting tomorrow. This is not a great year to be trying to get a job, but since the economy depends on teenage spending, I may have a decent shot.

Busy. Simply busy.

So I went to Lauren's yesterday to study for the driving test. We spent maybe ten minutes studying. The rest of the time, she was stealing music from my computer. And now I am going to pass out on my keyboard from exhaustion. Possibly, more comes later.

Bored. Simply bored.

Well, here it is. 60 years ago, American and British troops stormed the beaches of Normandy, France. Please join me in a moment of silence for those who courageously gave their life on June 4, 1944 to preserve our freedom to create such a crappy website. Also, I would like to observe the 40th President of the United States of America: A man known as Mr. Ronald Reagan. The first man to sit in the oval office while I have been alive. The man who, despite the stress of the end of the Cold War, still managed to hang on to life to the age of 93.

Now that my recognition of dead people is over, let me shift to the land of the living. Today I got bored, and discovered something: I was playing with the various cheat codes in Grand Theft Auto 2 (Rockstar Games, 1998), and discovered that the city this game takes place in is actually a woman's harem: It is really easy to see, since the only view available is overhead: everyone in the city is male. Every single one of them. Even the prostitutes. It's very sickening.

On to happier topics: my mind never stops imagining. Just a few moments ago, I thought up a scenario at Sara's party that was on Monday that involved my head being kicked while underwater by Jeff when he had been dunking me, and Sara, Bob, Liz, and Jeff hauling me out while Lauren went to call 911. When I actually did get kicked in the head, I should have come to the surface berating Jeff for not kicking me harder and creating a serious situation that could have ended with my death, and guaranteed Bob giving me CPR. (If that sounds slightly homosexual, you will have to refer to my "about me" page to learn whose nickname I am referring to here ;)

Potter, the amazing future

Friday, June 4th, 2004 12:00 AM MDT

Today, while perusing the paper, I found a pair of articles about the Harry Potter movie, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" (opening today). Being the fan that I am, I of course had to stop and read the pair of articles, written by Denver Post staff writer Michael Booth. The first article was basically a summary of the movie, while praising the new director for his new, radical ideas about how the movie should be done. The other one, however, was him showing his ideas about where the popular characters could go next. You can read the excerpt of his article here.

In other news, yesterday was Sara's birthday party, and, like her last party, it was a lot of fun. The only downside is that Sara and Teri now have blackmail pictures of Jeff T. and I. While playing Twister. Use your imagination.

And now, I have to wish Moron a happy birthday.

The Tedium of Today

Thursday, June 3rd, 2004 12:00 AM MDT

So, yesterday, I was chomping my way through dinner, and my dad asks, "What are you going to do this summer?" I, being the person I am, responded in a non-committal way. My dad continues to say, "You've already wasted 1/6 of the summer. Starting Monday, it's going to be a big deal to have you just sitting up in your room." Now, I don't have the balls to respond in a sarcastic way, since that would have me running for the life of not only myself, but also the unborn children within. (jk)

This means that it's time for me to stop slacking off. It's time to get a job. It's time to get my permit. Actually, next week, Lauren and I are going to study the manual for the test so that we can both get our permits. However, I am willing to bet that I will get my 50 hours of driving before Lauren does, because if I drive to the cabin, that is two hours of driving. Coming back is another two hours, which means every weekend we go to the cabin, I have the opportunity to get four hours of driving done. Sometimes, we go at night, so that helps my 10 required nighttime hours.

Right now, I am just trying to enjoy the last true summer break I will have for the rest of my life.

Since I didn't write anything yesterday, I must wish Ms. Sara H. a happy birthday today, a day late.

Fun parties that take place in a pool

Tuesday, June 1st, 2004 12:00 AM MDT

I am overjoyed that I simply able to go to Sara's graduation party yesterday. I expected it to be fun, yes, because the guest list included Sara (obviously), her sister Teri, Bev, Dianna, Liz, Jeff, Lauren, Sarah ("Bob"), and of course I was on the list as well. Well, of course, with that ratio of genders (3.5:1), you know you're doing something right, being invited to such a party ;)

Anyway, it was a complete blast! All included people had fun, even though some of us got slightly sunburned and Jeff was being the complete ass that he always is to everyone. However, we all got our revenge on Jeff in various ways, mostly with dunking. Like I said, it was bucket loads of fun!
