And Then There Were 28

I officially went from 32 teeth to 28 yesterday and I'd do it all over again just to get put under. All I remember is laying in the dental chair looking at the light above my head and then getting into my dad's car. I don't remember falling asleep or standing up out of the chair or if anyone said anything to me in the process. I barely remember seeing my dad's bright blue car and then I fell asleep again on the way home. When I got home into the kitchen my dad had me take the gauze out of my mouth to take my medication and then I stumbled down the stairs and passed out on my bed for the next 3 hours. I woke up a few times to wipe the drool from my face but other than that I was just out cold.

Don't read this next part if you have a weak stomach...

When I woke up from that state of unconsciousness I went into the bathroom to discover that it wasn't saliva I was wiping from my face. When I took the gauze out of my mouth to take my medicine I didn't put any back in and I had just been bleeding everywhere... not drooling.

Other than that I've just been keeping frozen vegetables on my face, sleeping and watching the beginning of movies... it doesn't help that I already have a movie watching disease that I never stay awake anyways, but add some good strong drugs on top of that and its a sleepy combination.

Wish me Luck!

I'm finally going in to get my wisdom teeth out today at 2. I've been putting it off for a while with the excuse that I couldn't afford to take the time off. So now that its summer and the weekend and my teeth are starting to bother me, I think its about time. It kind of happened all of the sudden though, so I don't have much time to prepare. I called the dental office yesterday at 11:45 after I got home from school to set up a consultation and the receptionist said "Can you be here at 12?" So I called work and told them I would be late and went down to their office. Then after an x-ray the doctor said he had a cancelation for today (thursday) and they could fit me in at 2. So here I am, I haven't eaten since dinner last night and will probably only be on soft foods for the next day or so.

Can anyone recommend any good movies or stay at home activities?

I Like Smiling, Smiling's My Favorite

When I lived in Hawaii I fell in love with Melona Bars. They are an ice cream bar that tastes like you're eating a freshly cut honey dew but colder and 37 times better. Ever since I've been home(3weeks) I've been craving them but no store I've seen has carried them. So last night I went on a Melona Bar google scavenger hunt and ended up on some random person's blog who was having a similar predicament. This man said that he found them at a Korean market, so I continued on with my scavenger hunt and found an Asian Market right by MCC where I'm taking summer school. So today after class I went to this Asian market and felt completely uncomfortable and out of place being the only non-Asian in the store, but ended in victory with the precious Melona treasure. I bought two boxes and opened one as soon as I got in my car and became overwhelmed with the glorious Melona flavor that brought back so many wonderful memories. I was literally smiling and laughing out of pure glee for the rest of my drive home while I enjoyed the sweet sensations filling my mouth. I am happy.

Only in Las Sendas

Saturday night me and 4 friends went to go longboarding down the hills of Las Sendas. We would all take turns, one person drives the car down behind the other four going down the hill. We were on our fifth run of the night and I was at the head of the pack when a cop pulls up coming the opposite direction and shines his big spot light on me and tells me to go sit on the sidewalk. As I'm getting up and looking back at the other guys coming down the hill I see Mike biff it and skid on his back and then start rolling. He ended up getting a little bit of road rash on his elbow and a soreness in his shoulder. The officer informed us that it was a violation to be skateboarding on the streets in Mesa but they only enforce it in Las Sendas. (no signs posted about this law in the area) He took all four of our IDs (not the driver of the car though) and wrote us all tickets... not even a warning.
Officer Smith wasn't aware of the fine associated with this violation but gave us a number to call and a court date for a month from now. He was then nice enough to give Mike some first aid for his elbow and went on his merry ticket writing way. Blasted Mesa City Cops!

The fine shouldn't be more than $20... Do I pay it? Or go to court and fight it...
