    The stars used to be there all the time, but they ended up taking them away. They were just activated again for one day as part of the JC's April Fools stuff.

    Yeah, but the mornings will be darker... I do not enjoy getting up when it is still dark out. ;)

    I went through that operation for my wisdom teeth. I got them out before they grew roots when i was 17 so they had to do surgery. My family has a bad history with wisdom teeth so we took extra precautions. You probably don't want to hear my stories ;) .

    Well, I saw the x-rays and I have pre-molars with longer roots on them than my wisdom teeth. My top two are in, my bottom left is impacted - facing up but is not going to come in, it would have to move the molar in front of it a bit to have room, and my bottom right tooth is the interesting one - completely on its side with the roots going straight back as well (which concerns me because out of the four those look the longest), however this one has broken through the gum line and a bit of its side is showing - weird. My mom says she'll be surprised if I need stitches. I can only hope. Those panaramic(or however you spell them) x-rays are so cool.

    Oh and my Mom told me that this oral surgeon is fairly new - so that means fairly young and if he's good looking he can pull my teeth out any day ;) lol

    I had my wisdom teeth taken out when I was 18, but no horror stories from me. My operation went rather smoothly, I never had to take any of the pain medication they gave me. Just follow the instructions they give you after your surgery and you should be just fine. Best of luck!

    got my wisdoms out last september and damn if I couldn't eat anything. :(

    course, the percocet helped big time...and I got 2 days off work. :D

    Yah they give you plenty of percocets, funny thing was they didn't make me fall asleep. I guess it felt so good to be pain free that I didn't want to sleep. The only bad thing for me is that I have TMD really bad and my mouth dosen't open as wide as most poeples for prolonged periods of time either so afterward my jaws were killing me and I couldn't open my mouth wider than a spoon could slip in. I had stitches and didn't know what they were (whatever you do don't go thinking its some mushroom from mushroom soup and try to get it out! I almost fainted). But the actual operation went fine adn I came out of the anasthetic really fast. My dad had some impacted teeth, itll be better to get them out now than waiting till more problems arise.

    A mushroom! OUCH! I know what you mean Master Natalie, I went through the same thing with some chicken and rice soup when I had mine taken out. Lived off liquid foods for several days, Frostys are always good! I was lucky and got along very well, I was never in much pain. My sister developed dry sockets when she had hers done, that was painful, but she didn't follow the after-care instructions very closely, so be sure to do that!

    Ohhhh, you guys, now you're going to make me confess about my own teethy problems. I need to go to the periodontist in 10 days for some deep cleaning. Darn it. Thank goodness for dental insurance, I'd be in the poorhouse this coming year.

    Well, much to my dismay (riiiiiight) the oral surgeon, with my mom's professional discount, wants to charge me $1248.75, not that I'm being technical or anything. Does anyone have that type of money laying around? Certainly not I. So, I'll just store up a sort of credit with them, pay what I can until I have it all paid and can get them taken out. If they begin to bother me before then, I'll have to, as one of my friends said, "take it like a f****** man" (that came from a sweet girl of about 16) and have my mom's employer take them out - with nothing but it being numbed. I want to be unconscious, which does look like it would be a problem. He said they'd drag me in the back door and knock me over the head with a baseball bat.

    All this teeth talk is making my teeth hurt - better stop while I'm ahead.

    Paintball! let's talk paintball... I went this past weekend and I had a blast!!! I made a pretty good target I have to tell you I got smacked around a lot by those guppies.

    Total cost: $20 for renting a gun and field cost, $50 split into 2 for sharing a box of 2000 paintball rounds. Lasted all day, what fun! oh my gosh.

    I think I've heard of this one before but it's a good one:

    Subject: Ten Dollars
    Fred and his wife Edna went to the state fair every year. Every year Fred would say, "Edna, I'd like to ride in that there airplane." And every year Edna would say, "I know Fred, but that airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."

    One year Fred and Edna went to the fair and Fred said, "Edna, I'm 71 years old. If I don't ride that airplane this year I may never get another chance."

    Edna replied, "Fred that there airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."

    The pilot overheard them and said, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take you both up for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say one word, I won't charge you, but if you say one word it's ten dollars."

    Fred and Edna agreed and up they go. The pilot does all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word is heard. He does all his tricks over again, but still not a word.

    They land and the pilot turns to Fred, "By golly, I did everything I could think of to get you to yell out, but you
    didn't."

    Fred replied, "Well, I was going to say something when Edna fell out, but ten dollars is ten dollars."

    Yesterday was highly annoying. For some reason, my .NET passport wasn't working so I couldn't get on MSN Messenger or into my e-mail account. Internet connection was fine though. After arriving at a loss around 3am I did a system restore and ta-da everything is okay now. You gotta love that system restore option.
