How I Fund the Local Library

$33 and something cents. That's how much of a fine I have on my library card thanks to my darling little sister. Grrrrrrr.

In other news, I went to the orthodontist today and they made impressions of my lovely teeth. The top set went just fine, but the bottom set decided to get stuck. There was a minute during which I was sure I was going to be walking around with teeth-impression putty stuck in my mouth for all eternity.

Dental Technician: It never gets stuck. *pulls harder* Sometimes it just needs a little coercion. *pulls even harder* We'll get it off. *starts to sound panicked* Really, these things never get stuck!

No worries, though! It did eventually come loose.

I'm really feeling for the Americans right now - those who have to pay for all their own medical bills anyway. This twenty minute appointment cost $300!! (Luckily, I ain't the one paying for it. ^_^)

On that note, I reeeeally need a job, because this whole make-a-million-on-a-best-selling-book-within-the-next-month thing isn't working out as well as I'd hoped. So I'm going to be productive and go stare at my resumé until it magically looks good.

  1. I would totally force her to pay for that... or force your parents.

    I'm angry for you.

    Haha... teeth is a dental bill, not medical... even worse. :D And I would be seriously freaked out if that happened to me.
