    May 19th is the soonest I can get in right now to the oral surgeon. (The same day, my dad's going in for oral surgery, so my mom wants to get everything done at once. I'll just be looked at to see what can be done.) But if I keep pointing out the fact that my jaws are hurting, I'm going to get in sooner.
    Mm. I hope you can. Really. Because, honestly, I like having you be able to eat and generally focus. That and the last thing you need is this screwing with the good teeth. Still, only a few more days. I know you can make it.

    The fun thing is that thinking about oral surgery reminds me of a scene I read in Pastwatch by Card, where a man stabbed his own groin. Weird connection, but it happens in my life.
    Okay, why did he stab his own groin? XD Because while I know some people have weird fetishes... ew.

    Mind-melding makes me think of wrong things. Combined with the mental images of you in the shower... Heeheeheehee.
    You're welcome. ;D

    (If you want to know something really creepy, I had a dream a few years ago that I was writing this exact message to you, with PC on the skin I have now, with the exact avatar I have now. Apparently, u iz mah destinie!!1!)

    Did you foresee that I was naked during my response to you?

    Also: We Didn't Start The Flamewar, which makes me laugh because it's Billy Joel (who I also like listening to) and College Humor. XD
    And yet, it's so true. Everywhere. Oh, the internets.

    (and send pictures!) XD;

    (This will never get old.)

    No. Because it makes people stop posting their ideas, because everyone thinks their thread is deserving of individual attention because everyone is a ~*~spechul snowflak~*~.
    Oh, sorry. I forgot where I was posting.

    Andy: I'mma big boy!
    Angel: :|
    Orson: Why am I on fire?!
    Also something that will never get old. XD

    Maybe it's like me playing GTA:2. I don't do any of the missions in that game. I just get the money necessary to move onto the next level by running people over. I had the S.W.A.T. team and army coming after me in the mall, with tanks rolling right through the shopping centers and streets.
    ...You know, maybe I should get this game.

    Why are you discussing a six-year-old like that?
    Because I'm ORSON SCOTT CARD.

    Beat her up for me, please.
    I would, but she's a black belt. XD

    (Do you know how much easier you can read Card's books if we were actually closer? Because, someday, I'll have every book the man has ever written.)
    Including the little bit he'd write on the restraining order? XD

    And Andy, the dear boy, is just like "I think I'm supposed to like this? o_O But I don' Uh-oh. What do I do???"
    Clearly, take Viagra. And maybe E. I wonder what would happen if you combined drugs like that.

    There were many many problems with that book, one of which is the lack of good characterization of Andy. He became more of like a character that Card pulled into a plot where he wasn't needed. (This also happened in the novella A War of Gifts, where the conflict could have been solved without Andy showing up, but he came out of nowhere and solved everything without any build-up.)
    So, in other words, Andy is like the literal deus ex machina, the kind that the ancient Greeks did in their plays, where he'd come down from the heavens and, even if the problem could be solved by mortal means, mystically solve it anyway?

    If so, this means Andy is a Greek god. I'll allow you to come up with what his domain may be.

    That said, ooh. Characterization tends to be something I'm seriously into -- as in, if the characters seem forced, either I can't take the book seriously, or I get bored. (This happened while reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Emoangst Harry who out of nowhere developed an interest in Ginny, complete with monster threating to rip out his internal organs? Um... no thanks. I can't remember how long it took me to read that book, but I do remember it took me an effload of time.)

    But maybe, if I read Twilight before going into Ender in Exile, I'll be a little less likely to focus on the characterization. It's like how I read Mathilda before Frankenstein and thought Victor Frankenstein seemed incredibly optimistic and perky for the first several chapters as a result.

    I dunno how bad the surgery itself will be, but I'll keep you posted, because I don't want you to worry yourself over me.
    It'll be okay. They knock you out these days -- or, at least, if your surgeon's as good as mine, they do. And then, you spend the rest of the day not even fully awake. So, really, the removal shouldn't be so bad. I'm a bit worried that it might take a bit because it sounds like yours are coming in pretty wonkily, but I trust whoever will be handling you.

    The week of waiting for your mouth to heal, though, is a serious *****. Particularly because stitches back there are flipping uncomfortable.

    Like "My Hometown" has lines that people from his time could relate to, with racial tension and the loss of jobs. And he has other songs about common jobs, even today, with "Queen Of The Supermarket."
    I really have to listen to more of his music, then. That kind of stuff = awesome. I really do miss the days about a decade ago where everyone was like, "THE MIDDLE-CLASS. WE MUST SHOW THEM IN THE MEDIA." And TV had that great family feel to it because the shows were always about the family or the ordinary guy. And, as I've said before, now it's all about pretentious ass hats living in apartments in the city. I fully and utterly blame Friends for this. Friends was great and funny, but everything else that's trying to be a knockoff of it? Not so much. Oh, and the "family comedies" like George Lopez? Don't hold a candle to Roseanne. Sorry, but it doesn't. I couldn't explain why, but I feel like it's not so much about the family anymore as it is just one person.

    And why the hell is George Lopez on Nick at Nite anyway? Isn't Nick at Nite for classic shows like I Love Lucy? Why is it suddenly filled with stuff from the early 90's onward? I mean, half these shows, I either grew up with or came after the period when I stopped watching TV frequently. Goddamnit, Nickelodeon, I'm not that old!

    Holy crip! I've found someone my age who remembers Grace Under Fire!
    I was an ABC kid. XD My family didn't have cable, NBC had crappy prime time programming, and CBS was (Is?) full of Christian crap.

    But still... *high fives* I agree about it needing a DVD set. I can barely remember much about it, but I remember I used to watch it all the time.

    And now, for the first time ever, I think I may actually have to go looking for the Oxygen Network. (This is Smith College, Land of the Feminists, so I'm assuming we have it.)

    Plus, I also like the fact that it didn't shirk away from showing the realities of life.
    Until the last season, anyway. XD

    Seriously, though, yes. Roseanne was fantastic. The cast actually relied on wit and, as you've said, realistic situations to be funny. And, of course, it kinda helped that if I went anywhere around my hometown, I'd find essentially people exactly like the cast of that show. So, it just gets even funnier because I can't help but think, "...Yeah."

    I just kinda try to ignore the episodes from the point when they win the lottery on, since that kinda ruined the show for me.
    XD Don't worry. You're not the only one.

    Oddly enough, I have never seen the last episode. Maybe it's on YouTube.

    The images in my mind now are scarring.
    Do they involve a leather harness and ball gag? Because that's the mental image in my mind right now.

    I love fish. It's like the only thing with protein in it I can eat without wanting to die.

    Fortunately, for some odd reason, catfish is in a lot of Southern recipes, and it's also very delicious.
    Ooh, yes. But I do have to agree about salmon. Catfish is okay, but salmon is so incredibly tasty no matter what you do with it. Blackened, boiled, raw, grilled... it's all good.

    However, I can't stand tilapia. The college serves it all the time when they feel like cooking fish instead of vague meat. Which is about once every other week.

    Tuna salad is delicious. I actually haven't had tuna in a while. o_O
    Yes, and you should get some. The salmon in a pouch stuff by StarKist, I've found, is incredibly, incredibly tasty.

    Never had sardines though. Those kinda make me think that they would wiggle down my throat.
    Oddly enough, they really don't. However, what's annoying is that they sometimes still have scales on them, and while it's okay to eat their scales (in small doses), getting it caught in your teeth irritates the gums. Or, that's what they do to me, anyway. >_>

    They hired in someone to fill the position instead of giving it to someone who has been with the company for four years and was already trained to fill the position.

    Yeah, you're definitely better off looking for someplace else to work if they keep doing that to you. Besides, you said it was a ghetto supermarket, so maybe someplace less ghetto would be less stressful.

    Or at least full of a more amusing kind of stupid. After having worked at that parking company I've been with for the past two years, I can say without hesitation that rich people are hilarious when they're being moronic.

    This SPPf thread has a lot of humor to it. Yami Ryu, the OP going emo and threatening suicide, ampersand abuse, really bizarre excuses for lack of quality, and just general SPPf-flavored wank.
    You know, I really thought Breezy wasn't that kind of person. :|

    I thought he was, but it turned out to be one babby. So, I wanted to get Andy pregnant again, so I directed Andy and Angel for some afternoon lovin' with the rain providing background music.
    I can only wonder what the kids were doing when their dads went penis fencing.

    Cuddling was fine. Kissing was fine. Making out was fine. As soon as Andy was like "Sex? Yes yes?" Angel just kinda walked away to stare at the rain.
    Oh, Andy. A sure sign that you're doing sex wrong. XD

    Then, in order to insure that I get twins, I had Andy eat cheesecake. In TS2, eating cheesecake while pregnant will cause twins.
    Makes perfect sense!

    Now Andy and Angel both want ten kids. D:
    You know, I read this blog post someone wrote about making a Sims character who wanted ten kids, and then by nine, she was deathly afraid of babies.

    One night, after work, I was eating a sammich and leaned forward for a swig of soda. Suddenly, my thigh started burning. Ender just stared at me as I said "My pocket's hot." I dug through my pocket, nearly burned my hand on the battery, and threw the battery onto the table.
    O_o Lesson learned: pocket + battery + ??? =/= PROFIT?

    Also, you might want to use your own bags to bag your groceries when you can.
    This I tend to do anyway because everyone else on this campus would go :( if they saw me waste bags and bags all the time.

    I love this college. It's full of pretentious, self-righteous people who are PC and earth-friendly. For totally non-selfish reasons. Really.

    Also, when you get produce, put them in the plastic bags and tie the bags. This way, your produce doesn't touch a nasty cart/handbasket, nor roll out when you go through the line. The cash registers are nasty, and sometimes I, or another clerk, have to climb on the belt, so you get the nasty floor dirt on the register belt where you put your groceries. Or meat juice, or rotten milk. Or so your peaches don't roll into the garbage cans at the registers.
    Ew. ;_; Thanks for telling me all this.

    So, make sure to wash your veggies.
    Oh yeah. This is a good idea either way because the veggies grow out of the ground which is sprayed by chemicals and animal feces anyway.

    Yay animal feces! :D

    And check the expiration dates of everything you buy.
    Also a good idea. XD

    I hate you and your little avatar too. *shakes fist* It also doesn't help the pain I have in my head.
    But Orson Scott Card loves you! He sees you through the screen.

    (Edit: This is a joke by the way.
    Oh, don't worry. I know. XD

    Then, when she transitioned to a toddler, the first thing she did was kick Angel in the crotch. Then she went to go play in the toilet while Andy stared at the wall.
    XD! I love your sims. Also, clearly, the game decided Angel wasn't getting nearly enough stupid things happening to him. Unlike wall-watcher over there.

    The unedited version of your post in the FFL made me love you so goddamn hard.

    Alas, I edited it in case the orange sheep wasn't actually gone (again). Seriously, you'd think that if she was leaving us hanging for awhile, she'd at least put up a chapter of that fanfiction she's been working on so much.

    Oh, and I found another interesting flavor of Pringles recently: Mozzarella Sticks & Marinara. I find them to be tasty as all heck and possibly even hell. <3

    Epic. I wonder if chickens are easier or more difficult to get into clothes than the average dog is...

    All I know for sure is that my cats have almost never tolerated having clothes of any kind put on them. On at least one occasion, Frisco (this huge, loud, white-and-black tomcat we had for about eighteen years) put up with having a plastic derby from a Mr. Potato Head set sitting on his head for longer than we expected, but that's as much tolerance of clothing as any of them have ever shown.

    Go ahead. I don't recognize Aurincha as my name yet anyway, so really, go ahead. I just had to change it... I don't want to share my name with a slang word for men and a spa resort in Thailand anymore. On a side note, I totally have to visit the Anchan spa resort at least once in my life.

    By the way, I'm totally addicted to Sims legacies now. I don't really know if I should thank you or hate you xD But I'm going to thank you, because most of them are so hilarious they've extended my life for some extra hours.

    *pets* No chance to head to the dentist, m'dear? I am a little worried. (Although wisdom teeth are usually just an annoyance, right?)

    Also, obviously, we've mind-melded because not only that, but not too long after I received your message, I went off to take a shower of my own. Regrettably, I was about a half an hour after you went in.

    But still. *plants mental images*

    P.P.S., The only thing more tedious than reading Jane Austen, I've just realized, is trying to emulate her for the sake of parody.
