Or, you know your time off was abrupt and unplanned when...

I just went totally Dark Side on my shower. Wiped out a flourishing mildew colony, showing no mercy (to the mildew or my chapped hands). Why?

[Vamp!Willow voice]Bored now.[/Vamp!Willow voice]

:headdesk:

I was going to hit the commuter rail and go a bit out of the city, but sadly, I can't be bothered to get up early enough to spend a whole day alone somewhere I've never been.

Oh, well. I'm getting stuff done. I even made a dental appointment, though I couldn't get in until next week. They'll tell me I need my wisdom teeth out. This isn't news. They'll tell me I have to bring someone along to drive me home and sit with me while I babble. I'll laugh at the concept of having someone in my physical vicinity to do so. The world=not made for singletons.

Edit in, snagged from ladyelaine

Some of them, I use interchangeably (basement and cellar, for instance, and I have no idea when the proper time for either is), and there was no option for that. Not shocked about having no Dixie or Midwestern.

I hate that bit about "and have somebody else ... " WHO??? I live alone, and all my rellies live in a different town, and can't afford time off from work to come (let alone plane fare). All my friends work, and I live so far away that ... right, they should take four hours out of their day to help? 'cos that is what it would take--an hour (if there's no traffic) down to get me, an hour MINIMUM to wait for the procedure, an hour to and fro to my house, and an hour back to their house?? Yeah, right.

Yup. That's why I've never had my wisdom teeth out. Isn't that a riot? I do have a roommate, but it's totally an economic thing--we get along, but it's not the kind of relationship I could call on to say, "Hey, I'm going to be under anaesthesia; will you sit with me while I drool and mumble incoherently?"

However, the headaches starting to spread out from my jaw are getting fairly spectacular. I'll have to come up with something.

Completely unsurprising, since I'm from the DC area. We call easy classes 'Easy A's', though; there's no option for that.

I garnered a 65% American, 30% Dixie [DIXIE!? DIXIE!? Who do they think I am!?], and 5% Yankee.

Most of the Southern slang they have listed is so outdated. On a lot of the options, I would have rather chosen "none of the above," since I don't call them other than what they are. I must have some of my inherent Georgia blood in me if I can snag a 30% "Dixie." I blame it on the use of "y'all" and calling all carbonated drinks "Cokes."

Mine was screwed up, but it was mostly because they didn't have options for some of mine. Like the water fountain/drinking fountain thing. I call it a bubbler. So there.
