@NorieY say it ain't so
@dj pomegranate argh reminds me of when i went to see the Help with a bunch of friends and all of them were tearfully, exuberantly extolling its virtues afterwards... I just stood there aghast- had we seen the same fucking movie?!?!
then when i enragedly went on about how the movie was essentially self-congratulatory "racism is bad, and isn't everything so much better now" twaddle, they just looked at me indulgently and smiled at each other, "oh, she's on one of her rants again, how cute". AARRRRGHHHH. so glad pieces like this exist on the internets...
@ContainsHotLiquid Needful Things *may* be my favorite Stephen King- the Stand would be my favorite if it didn't get all rambly and religious-weird at the end. Needful things is such great storytelling and is so concise!
On Wisdom Teeth
@Little Book of Calm aaand my teeth shifted around afterwards and completely shifted my bite so that i can't chew properly anymore... went back to the same dentist and he told me, "yup, you need braces..." I DIDN'T BEFORE, YOU MONEY GRUBBING ASSHAT!!!

@deepomega whaaaaat you guys are so lucky, my experience was only marginally better than this girl's... and i had two out at a time because it was so expensive. $750 for TWO F*&KING TEETH.
@Gef the Talking Mongoose Squee!!!
@Little Book of Calm also, found the NY info to be pretty spot on- at my corner grocery in Wash. Heights, cigarettes are $12.50, and I always thought they were jacking up the price of everything.
@Leon Saint-Jean WHERE IS YOUR SKETCHY BODEGA?! Inquiring minds want to know. Um, for a friend.
@Little Book of Calm ooohhh and any ZAZ Movie. Airplane! Top Secret! Gaaaahhh greatness.
Shawshank Redemption, the Usual Suspects, Groundhog Day, Back to the Future, Bull Durham. Bickford Schmeckler's Cool Ideas used to be on Comedy Central all the time, totally underrated movie. Albeit one arguably enhanced by herbal reinforcement.
