Posts Tagged ‘Braces’

iconator_81974403b92ca32b5a67efe2d6bd16abThe title explains it all I believe, but I am going to attempt a post all the same.

 

 

Stuff you should (not really) know;

  • My braces came off!
  • I still haven’t gotten into a college.
  • Most of my life consists of sleeping, eating and being almost criminally lazy. All this is to be blamed on my sudden acquirement of huge amounts of time and nothing to do.
  • I’m bored sick.

That’s about it.

14760In other news, I recently read this brilliant book by C.W. Gortner called “ The Last Queen“. Its about Queen Juana of Spain who was more popularly known as Juana La Loca (Juana The Mad). It offers an insight into her life.  She’s  the (less famous) older sister of Katherine (Catalina) of Aragon, the infamous first wife of King Henry VIII.

The book is written in rich, almost lyrical prose. So much so, that you feel like you’re there, seeing, smelling and sensing all these things. I love his descriptions. Juana’s character has been well- researched (at least it seems that way, I’m no expert on the subject) and you forget that a man is behind this narration which is written entirely in Juana’s point of view.The book makes you feel.  The author makes you fall in love with his lead (I did).

All the characters are well-written and have dimension. She (Juana) comes across as a strong-willed, intelligent woman, far ahead of her times who has been wronged by the men in her life. I do not believe that Juana Of Castille was actually mad. I think she was driven to do the things that she did.

In short, A very well- written book and absolutely cannot be put down! Must Read.

I’m reading Emma by Jane Austen right now and I absolutely love it! ( More of the bubbly, over-flowing enthusiasm for you there. 😉 )

 

I think that’s about all that I can bore you with right now.  Here’s a quote I really love  from a movie I’ve never seen but really, really want to.

Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it? – – Carpe – – hear it? – – Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.

See you later!

EDIT: Apparently, I do have something to say.

OK ppl *waves to imaginary ppl*…That *points to left* is my pic,so U ken tell its the Awesum Chinky posting..U knw other than the fact that it’ll say”posted by xlucidinsanityx”..he he..I will, in all probability change it by next week…but NEway…getting to the point…Dentists are all sadists!! U’ll need some background info here…U C, I *unfortunately* have braces and have to get them tightened every month. I use the term tightened very loosely here, its more like monthly maintenance..but really tightening sounds better. The doc usually does more than just tighten the wire across my teeth ( which he does with a screw driver type thing). He generally hits my teeth, yanks them and basically does just abt everything to get them aligned. I knw its supposed to help me and stuff but no one told me it would hurt so freakin’ much!!!! I had one of my torture sessions with him today, he actually, physically pulled two of my teeth to the front..I screamed like crazy… I bet all the other patients ran away..Lolz! The doc always says that he should take anxiety pills before attending to me. All his interns say that too.I’m infamous at the place. *grins* Dentists use tools that a. Look majorly scary and b. Look like they’d probably be more useful to an electrician or a mechanic,what with the screw driver and everything. This is like an early warning for everyone else who is getting braces too. My condolences to you. Lolz! But hopefully mine’ll be off by December…

Standard Dentist' Tools..Omg...thank god I shut my eyes everytime..

On the bright side, I had my first dance lesson today. Sanj and me are taking dance lessons for the summer. We did the Slide and the Triangle today. It was more like aerobics or exercise than actual dancing…Guess we’ll move on to that later. It was still fun and definitely helped my no exercise situation..Lolz!

OK done for the day probably..or MayB I’ll write again if like an alien ship lands here..

L8r..
