Big mouths and rollercoasters

Some of you may remember I had some dental issues. Well, have. My root canal pain, is, for now, not there. This is good, very very good. There has been far too much of that. The root canal is still a problem, but if it doesn't hurt I only need a checkup in a few months.


I just went for lunch and noticed that it hurts when I try to open my jaw too far. This is entirely new, and originated when I went to the specialist (ontodontist). Maybe it is unreasonable of me to blame, but I suspect his unwisely placed injections are causing this trouble. Need I say that dentisticide is imminent? The only thing stopping my from doing silly things is the fact that I really, really don't want to see ANY DENTISTS OR DOCTORS EVER AGAIN. Sorry for shouting but I do feel quite strongly about the matter.

There is a certain irony to my being unable to open my mouth properly.

Other than the jaw thing (and it is not, at the moment, a major problem), however, today is a pretty decent day. You know, it is really silly, but sometimes I wake up and get all happy just thinking about how exciting it is, and how I am going to see my family soon, and then I am moving in the autumn and the Fiancé and I (second time using the Title without shuddering! woo-hoo!) will escape to somewhere and have a civil wedding that doesn't involve ANY planning and then I'll have time to work on new adventures and go to Florida and learn to drive - no, I really can't - and find a job when they let me. I love a good adventure, and this one is certainly the biggest yet.

You know what I also really want to do? I want to go on a rollercoaster. Last time I went on one was at Universal Studios, with the Boyfriend, courtesy of his sister, and it was absolutely wonderful. It's a shame that my niece and nephew are too little to go on these things, otherwise I'd take them. My rebel goddaughter especially would love it. Oh, I know, I'll take them to the Efteling, the coolest theme park of all times. And I can sneak off to the rollercoaster when they are occupied with something else.

Denticide is cool. Can I help? Eyeballs/teaspoon combination? With mustard sauce?
