white_tiger: Tigerzord! (Batgirl & Robin-Dynamic Duo...)
The day went better than I'd expected it to go, honestly. The appointment I had set up at the college regarding my job hunting was almost a half-hour, and I was able to make it to where I wanted to go before 10:00. Upon my arrival, I was able to pick up one comic book. (I'd been tempted to get the Supergirl #5 issue that had a cover done by Michael Turner, but figured I could wait a few more days.) Afterward, I went to work, then home to complete my amount of chores.

Receiving yet another appointment today at another dentist's office, wasn't a way I had planned to spend today; the knowledge that it's the same place my mother goes to did little to change the fact that I was partially grateful to be half asleep during the exam. However, I was fully woken up when I received a piece of information that hadn't been shared by the people at my college: not only do I get to have a crown placed in one of my teeth that currently has a cavity, but I also get all four of my wisdom teeth yanked out. Break out the champagne, because a world of pain will be in my future, unless this dentist actually delivers and numbs my mouth.

According to the dentist, two of my wisdom teeth, she can remove herself-the ones on the right side of my jaw, which won't cost as much as the cavity infected tooth. The two wisdom teeth on the left side, I'll have to have oral surgery performed to get those out, and I truly hope that I'm put to sleep for that appointment.

This is supposed to be for my benefit, and I keep reminding myself that, as these treatments are to help my teeth remain healthy. So why is it that I'm focusing on the negative side of things? The plus side to this entire day is that I get to watch my baby cousin throughout today and tomorrow, and I do find myself enjoying her company at times; she will be turning nine years old in a little over a month from now.

With my teeth finally polished and my appointments over, at least for now, it is entirely up to me as to how clean they remain. I plan to see that they remain clean for some time.

I'm pleased that I won't have to leave at 7:00 AM for a while. Wasn't pleased with the new comic books yesterday, but I did buy the back issue of Nightwing #117 as I said that I would. The guy at the comic book store said that Detective Comics and the Outsiders are gonna be coming in next Wednesday, but not Infinite Crisis or Teen Titans. Curious, but something to think about as this week-and this month-winds down.

Now, off to see if I can get myself another free lunch before I meet up with my friends.

Other than having to get up at 6:15-a truly ghastly hour to wake up-my day went well. The left half of my mouth was cleaned, and now both sides of my teeth-left and right-are cleaned. The only thing I need to contend with now is the polishing sometime next week, and the rest will be left up to me.

Being at the college to write this isn't my idea of a fun Tuesday afternoon, however. I still have to get home and gargle more saltwater just to get the numbness down. Before I do that, I received this slip for a free 1/4 lb. combo meal, so I'm going to get that taken care of; the only saving grace is that I won't need to cook anything for myself for lunch since I missed breakfast.

Currently hanging out with a friend of mine at the college, my day has gone somewhat decently. I got another haircut, but this one was free of charge-meaning I didn't have to pay, which was a good thing. The computer at home is currently having some problems, which isn't good. Hopefully this will be remedied soon, but I have my doubts.

Tomorrow, I get to go back to the clinic to get the left side of my teeth cleaned; afterward, I won't need to go in any longer. Despite the fact that I've enjoyed making these rounds, having to leave at 7:00 AM isn't something I enjoy these days. Within the next few days, I'll be picking up the latest Batman & Robin issues, as well as Supergirl and The Legion of Superheroes and The Amazing Spider-Man. I'm especially looking forward to this upcoming weekend.

Today is known as the first day of Spring; haven't seen much of the sun, since it's been blocked by a ton of clouds. Technically, the 21st should be the first day, but that's a discussion I'd rather not get into.

I could've had this up yesterday, but due to the antivirus system on the computer, it had prevented me from logging online; had to deactivate one of the systems in order to get back online today. Quite frustrating to hear, and a huge annoyance.

On the good news page, my day did go well yesterday up until the computer debacle-read Birds of Prey #92 and thought it was good-it was pleasing to see Dinah, even if her appearance did result in one shocking event I hadn't expected to see turn out the way it did! I picked up two comic books, then two magazines later on the same evening at Wal-Mart.

I made the newest icon for only one main reason-after checking at Newsarama, if I hadn't been sitting down, I probably would've attempted a backflip out of sheer joy and-dare I say it-pure Robin geekdom. Within less than one week, Robin #148 along with Batman #651 will be released. Case in Point:

http://www.newsarama.com/forums/showthread.php?s=05ad3cd351bf3ed81f885cb64c43425d&threadid=62993

The first four pages promised by Adam Beechen-new Robin writer-that were guaranteed to change Tim's life completely? True to his word. Also, the previously mentioned 6-part issue that would've spanned Robin #148 to Robin #153? Pushed down to a 4-part issue which ends with Robin #151.

My cleaning went decent enough-only had the right side of my mouth taken care of; will have to go in next Tuesday to get the left side of my mouth done. But, I'm certain it will be worth it come March 22nd.


Nightwing #118; Teen Titans Annual #1 )
white_tiger: Tigerzord! (Batgirl and Robin-Dynamic Duo...)
Aside from the fact that I went into work, went to my weekly evening class, and had a decent talk with a friend, my day was soured when I quickly got online for a short time earlier. After checking in at DCComics.com, I was shocked and appalled to see that the listing for Teen Titans #34 had been pushed from this Wednesday-soon to be tomorrow-all the way to April 5th! Normally, I wouldn't be that upset about something as trivial like this, but DC Comics has stated that all of their books would catch up to each other officially this month. So far, two stabs in the back concerning Supergirl and Teen Titans!

If I don't see two covers concerning Teen Titans #34 this upcoming Wednesday at the comic book store-both of them, since I may just decide to make a second trip-I will be beside myself with brimming anger. On the plus side, Nightwing #118 will still be released, and that is something to look forward to. The question is...which Nightwing will it be, and who will be behind that mask?

Tomorrow, within 8 hours, I will finally have my teeth cleaned. The nervousness still hasn't reared its ugly head, though I don't look forward to this moment in my life.

Sometimes I wish dentists would actually stay true to their word when they tell you what they're precisely gonna do.

I headed to the college, then to the clinic as scheduled and was able to make it. I still haven't gotten my teeth cleaned, even after I was informed last week that I would get them cleaned this week! By the time they actually get around to doing as such, it may be too late. The only saving grace is that I don't have to pay anymore money.

I was told that, promptly at 8:00 next Tuesday-which happens to be on the 14th, a month after a certain V-day has passed-I will actually get my teeth cleaned. I'm not looking too forward to having to get up around 5:00 or 6:00, but I'm certain that I'll find myself running out the door precisely at 7:00 whether I like it or not.

This will once again be a short entry, as there isn't much to say concerning how my day went.

The appointment was tolerable, even if I was kept waiting for nearly thirty minutes in the waiting room. Should've known something was up when I walked into the area and saw a number of people being treated, and all in one room. (Then again, this clinic is on campus, so I wasn't that surprised.)

Didn't even get my teeth cleaned, yet I was probed, and bled, and didn't get injected with novocaine, even after I requested it in the form of a question. To make matters more irritating, I have to go back in Thursday to get my teeth X-rayed, and cleaned! That's gonna cost an extra $15.00 right off the bat. My only piece of good fortune may happen tomorrow, though I consider that a long shot.
white_tiger: Tigerzord! (Cassandra Cain-Batgirl No More...)
I changed the quote since within two days, on Wednesday, March will be here. I felt it was an appropriate one, since that response has been on my mind for over a week now. (That, and I watched the movie sometime this month.)

This will also be a short post, since I'm planning on going to sleep soon. Tuesday will be a day of good/bad fortune. Why? I'm getting my teeth cleaned at the college. It only costs $15.00, so that's quite good. What would be bad is if they didn't have any novocaine. (Yes, I'm pretty damn serious about that one.)

My sickness has all but gone away-the only thing I must contend with now is chest congestion, but that is hopefully on the mend as well-throughout the course of the week. As for my appointment, that went fairly well. I must fill out some forms when they arrive to my house sometime next week, along with an application that will help prove if I'm able to be helped by this department of rehabilitation-when it comes to finding myself another job. I chose to celebrate the only way I know how-not by buying food; I have that at home-by buying books/comic books.

I ended up getting a total of four back issues and one current issue. (One back issue I already had, but the cover looked good enough, so I got it.) Also bought a book at Borders for $6.00 thanks to a coupon that cut the price by 30%.

I spent most of the week on my back since I had to recover from my illness-which must be one of the reasons why I enjoyed yesterday so much: I actually got to walk around and did productive things. (I would've bought some lunch, but that would've risked me becoming entirely broke so I felt that I should hold off on buying myself lunch until next week.)

I don't feel like giving responses on my current purchases just yet, but will get around to doing so eventually. The quote comes from one of my purchased issues.
