Twenty-one - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal

Originally uploaded by ABMann.
I got contacted by a person I really liked in college via MySpace. Very nifty. Having an account there is worth while, it seems, even if using it at all sloughs bits of my soul.

I'm sort of looking forward to my dentist visit today. i just want to be done with it. Stoopid wisdom teeth. After that I can deal with the TMJD (I think) and the teeth grinding. My mouth is all kinds of crazy fun.

I've been sleeping insanely well the last few nights. Getting to work at 7 is for the cool kids because cool kids then get to leave while there's a little sun left. I suppose I should start doing that... Half a cool kid, I suppose.

Better half than none, ne?
NOSE! Everyone should click the picture. I'm at 4,968 views for my photo stream. So close to 5000. :)

eeep! good luck with your wisdom teeth. i won't tell you of my experience because it was horrendous. but it sounds like you're having them pulled instead of the whole oral surgery/impacted thing, eh?

you're at the very LEAST half a cool kid. dare i say more.

No. No, they're impacted. All of them. Quadruple your fun? I'm so lucky!
I'm hoping the dentist will say "Oh yeah, we can handle this no problem!" as opposed to a previous dentist who said, "I won't touch this with a ten foot pole."

They're not coming out today, though. Hopefully soon.

oh aaayyyyeeeee . . then i'm sorry. all 4 of mine were impacted too. i got them removed at some maxillofacial surgery center in madison.

on the way home, my driver and i stopped at culvers in verona so i could get a milkshake [to take the pain meds with] and i passed out in the drive thru, like RIGHT at the pick-up window. when i came to, everyone was freaking out, paramedics were trying to get me out of the car and i started puking blood. then i got to ride in an ambulance and hang out at the hospital for a little while. apparently i have really low blood pressure and my body doesn't like general anesthesia. i'll remember that for next time i have surgery. it was pretty much the worst experience of my life.

so, not to scare you or anything . . everyone's experience with it is different. my friend justin was up and walking around and eating normal food within hours. who knows. but i'll be rooting for you. "rooting"?!?!? get it?? TEETH!?!?! I'M HILARIOUS!!

Yeah, that's a bit scary. I've never had an IV anesthesia. I have been put under for dental surgery before though and woke up groggy but fine. When I was 12ish, I tripped at a baseball field and landed on my front tooth on a set of bleachers (freaky happenstance). The tooth got jammed back into my gum and I had to have it extracted. I was gassed for the surgery and fine the next day.

I think it'll be safe to assume I'll have a better time of t than you did... that's the worst experience I've ever heard.

1. I clicked on your nose. I feel dirty.
2. They better be the most concievably awesome person ever to even begin to balance out the terribleness that is myspace.
3. I just sneezed and now I have to take a shower. Explain that one to me.
4. I try to be one of those cool kids, but when I go into work at 7 or 8, it just meas I'm working 15 or 16 hours that day. Really, the cool kids just don't go to work until after the sun sets, then only stay for about three hours. That's the ticket.

1. Oh. I like it.
2. She is pretty cool. And crazy.
3. You sneezed snot all over yourself which is gross. A shower will fix this.
4. You may be right but I can leave at 3 if I choose. Usually, I don't. I was diong work related stuff for 12 hours yesterday. 4 of those hours, though, were studying adn projects that will get a me a very fat bonus check.

1. You're dirty.
2. Do I know her?
3. While that's true, I now have snot all over my laptop and have to thus take my laptop into the shower with me. I'm posting from the shower. I love the wireless intarweb.
4. Your job is simply superior to mine. I spent 8 hours on my day off the day before yesterday working on menus for the coming season. I submitted what amounts to about ten pages worth of material to my Boss. I received neither a bonus check or a thank you. Though I will make it up by stealing Kobe, White Truffles, and Scott's car.

1. Duh.
2. I have no idea.
3. Wireless is great. Porn EVERYWHAR!!!
4. Can you sautée Scott's car? If not it may not be worth the bother.
nathan_lounge From: nathan_lounge Date: January 4th, 2007 06:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
1. Just sayin'
2. You should find out. Is she hawt? If yes, then I probably knew her and you should give me her phone number.
3. I pornxor in the morning, pornxor in the evening, even pornxor at suppertime!
4. Yes, yes I can.
abmann From: abmann Date: January 4th, 2007 06:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
1. Woo!
2. I thought so. Her name is Josie. Did you know any Josies?
3. That's a lot of pornxoring!
4. Sweet. Make yourself some macaroni and cheese with the truffles and Scott's car. The Kobe could be an excellent carpaccio appetizer.

You may be frightened by this: I bought a 70 dollar bottle of Scotch last night.

1. Now you're just making arbitrary noises to continue the comment structure.
2. Josie is a cartoon's name. Did you make friends with a sexy cartoon? -- Actually I have no idea who you are talking about, what year was she?
3. You'd be surprised how quickly the time goes when you're pornxoring.
4. My fridge right now is kinda ridiculous on account of freebies from my distributors. The irony is that I'm probably just going to freeze down most of it because I never eat. At least I can say I have some Kobe in my freezer whenever anyone asks how my kids are.

I'm not frightened, so much as proud. What age is the bottle? Where'd it come from? Who made it? Who'd you buy it from? TELL ME!
abmann From: abmann Date: January 4th, 2007 07:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
1. yup
2. She was my year, I think... You know, she may have been yours. She graduated early, I do know that.
3. No, I really wouldn't. What do you think I do all Sunday while Fox is working?
4. You have great food but never eat You're such a disappointment to your mother and me, son.

It's an 18 year old single malt from Speyside Scotland. I forget the name. It started with an A and had an apostrophe in there somewhere.

Your nose is like the York Peppermint patty of noses. When I click it, I get this sensation.

I think of nostalgic times when a giant plaster nose adorned the billboard to Top's Electronic's warehouse. Alas, those days are gone and it's replaced by Best Buy, but I shall never forget the nose.

By the way, never have I been spammed as much as I have been with myspace.

Oh, and extra props on keeping a hairless nose.
abmann From: abmann Date: January 4th, 2007 06:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
I trim my nose hairs entirely too often. But they get so damn long and ticklish.

Wait! You don't have a handlebar mustache???
