Holy Tooth Extraction, Batman!

Saturday, August 28, 2010

I have to have my wisdom teeth pulled. All four. Two are partially impacted under my jaw bone (doesn't that sound lovely?) and two are just gnarly. I also have four cavities, one of which is in one of the wisdom teeth. My dentist wants to put me completely under with iv drugs but I'm not so sure. First off, its around $500 for just the drugs. Not to mention, I'm kind of excited to get the crazy gas. I mean, you've seen this video right? it's been all over everywhere and still makes me laugh every time!"I feel like a unicorn just took me on a ride... to a magical palace with blueberries..."
Not to mention that the IV stuff is expensive! I think the gas has to be cheaper, right? I'm looking for a budget friendly buzz thankyouverymuch!

Just be thankful that I'm too lazy to scan in the photos the dentist gave me yesterday. HD high quality glossy photos of my mouth printed on professional photo paper... I mean, seriously?! That's what my money is being spent on? And why do I need a copy to take home? I highly doubt these will get framed!

Dyeing fabric... a new addiction!

Saturday, August 21, 2010

Have you ever tried dyeing fabric? I did it for the first time yesterday. I made a hand cut linen flower and thought it was pretty, but would be better with some color. I saw the tutorial that Kathleen put up on her blog, Grosgrain and decided to go for it! It's SO fun and satisfying! This is definitely the first of MANY hand dyed (doesn't that sound fancy?!) flowers in my future!

A GREAT Tutorial

Friday, August 20, 2010

Are you struggling to hold on to summer as much as I am? I found this tutorial for a 'shirt skirt' over on Sew Like My Mom the other day and fell in love. I adore a good jersey knit skirt. They're SO versatile and easy to wear with flip flops (my staple) or even Chacos (an Asheville staple). I went to Good Will the day after I found this tutorial and bought two shirts to try but haven't had time to yet. I think if I can find the right shirt, it could even be a great skirt to wear through fall with some tights and my Ugg boots!

Asterisks Abound

List of Shit to do or that has been done by me:

*Visit Austin,Tx.
I did this and it was a hell of a lot of fun. Went out dancing with the bestie and drank way too many Shiners. Thankfully we found a fan with a mister under it and planted ourselves there to get our groove on. My false eyelashes even stayed on. Yay for bff's good with eyelash adhesive!

*Do the Wink Heads and Threads CRAFTACULAR show.
I did this yesterday, and while it wasn't a great show monetarily, I did get to actually have a conversation with the other crafters. If you've ever done a craft show, you know how rare this really is. There was also free lemonade and cookies. Yay for free!

*Pay tuition for this semester
I did not do this. I got an email from the financial aid office saying my application had been revised and they were putting me on a 'do not purge' list. Yay for not purging me or my classes! Also, yay for another week to scrape up the funds for tuition.

*Sit around and read a sickening number of books
I have been doing this for a few months now. Right now I have five library books checked out and have read all but one of them. I got said books not even one week ago. Usually this is a sign that I'm going into depressive/hermit/toostressedtodealwiththeoutsideworld mode, but really I've just been reading some good shit. If you need a suggestion for funny chick lit, let me know. I have the hookup.

*Do the laundry and dishes before George gets home
I have done a few loads of laundry and a few sinkfulls of dishes, yet the piles never seem to dwindle. I think I'll blow the rest off until he has a day off to do them and I'll go read some more. =)

* I'll throw this in just because it's obscene. That is a donut covered in chicken fingers. Really fucking good chicken fingers.
