So today I went to my dentist and he said that I’m probably taking my braces off within 4 or 5 months. YAAAAAAY! But in the meantime he’s still messing around and doing his monthly adjustments, which basically means that right now I’m in great great suffering. Well, I’m being a bit of a drama queen, but my teeth hurt a lot and I won’t be posting as much as I expected for the next couple days because I’ll probably be: a) overmedicated b)slightly aggressive c)out of my mind d)full of ice cream and lots of other Junk food d) too afraid of getting out of bed and having my retina burned by somebody else’s perfect and shiny teeth d)dreaming about the day I’ll finally take off this medieval torture device wannabe e)just dead in my couch.
"The Great War was the sort of a climactic event, the turning point between imperial Russia and communist Russia.
And Soviet Russia has been overwhelmingly important to all of us who have lived their lives in the 20th Century. Right after the victory over Germany and Japan, we spent most of the rest of our century, involved in this horrible cold war which had many hot manifestations in Korea, Vietnam, and so forth.”
