I Am More Machine Than Man Now

I got all manner of springs and tightening tools in my mouth. It feels GREAT. To those who have criticized me for my complaints about how bad it felt to have my mouth practically sawn in half with that screw thing, you can eat this for lunch: apparently I had a bad reaction to the numbing medication they gave me and it unnaturally tore up my mouth. In addition to that, the immense pain of the screw they "screwed" in there made it all worse. For days. So I wasn't insane. The orthodontist thought I was nuts for not tearing down the house for pain medication.

But now I am fine. It hurts a little because of tightening issues, but it is nothing like the last painful bout of orthodontic care. 

I am happy to report I can play guitar now and my sliced up finger is painless too. 

I sound like an old woman!!! 

Tomorrow is the Professor's birthday. Any ideas on what to get him? Come on, I know you have some ideas!!!!

I can't believe you commented on here. The audacity!

Technically, it's "he's more machine now, then man." Your configuration of the quote works, too.

Is it nerdy that I can still quote that? >.>

Ack! Of course, you were in pain. I'm glad it's better now.

A nice trip to the IKEA island, complete with lunch, possibly a visit with the natives.

I hope you went with the wide screen imac, after all those things are pennies on the dollar
