Great, my first order from amazon.co.uk and they manage to send the wrong damn thing. I really wanted my new headset before the weekend. :(

Oh man that sucks! I have never had a problem with amazon.com. I think you just got really unlucky.

Yeah... the only reason I ordered from them is because I couldn't get the ones I wanted from any swedish store. All I found was this. Then, when I order what I wanted, guess what I get? That's right, the tiny earphones I didn't want. Grr!

I no longer order anything from them because they were such a pain in the ass. They do a good job with reviews and details, but I refuse to order from them. I will look up an item there, then buy it from bn.com or someplace else.

Amazon.ca is fine for anything they have in stock, I've found. If it's a preorder, or out of stock, you're fucked.

I've preordered things 6 months in advanced, and been told they were sold out on the day off, and had to wait until... who knows when.

Fuck you Student Union bar staff.
Just because I am wearing eyeliner and am a guy does not mean that I can wait double the time (in comparatively similar bar busy-ness).

Also fuck you, general crowds in bars, I am very careful to not push into people as I go round/dancing as its infuriating, but will anyone else? Of course not.
I felt so good on Halloween when I had spikes sticking out of me, haha push into me now, dicks.

Stupid body - why in the world would you evolve teeth whose sole purpose is to be removed in a personally upsetting way and make me even more stressed out than I already am by screwing up my schedule THE ONE WEEK I AM TAKING OVER THE CLASSROOM? Furthermore, why must you make the extraction infinitely more difficult by having such a tiny mouth and veins that even the CHILD-SIZED NEEDLES have trouble finding?
Also I don't want to eat jello, but it appears I have no choice. I really want hot chocolate, but only cold things allowed for now. :(

[whine] I just want to be back to my normal scheduled life [/whine]

I believe the situation is that human jaws have been getting narrower over time, so most people can't fit all their teeth properly anymore. The ones that get displaced are the wisdoms.

That, and the fact that it hasn't been as much of a problem when a few teeth might go rotten or be knocked out before the wisdom teeth get in. If you have a few gaps, it's not so much of a problem since they move together, giving the wisdom teeth room.

That's what happened with me. When I was 12 or 13 I had one of my molars removed, so the wisdom tooth that came in over there wasn't a problem. The other 3 however weren't so lucky. Had them removed last year. Two were impacted and I don't remember what was up with the other, but I had them cut out of me. Only time I've had to be put under for anything, so that was an interesting experience.

Yeah, one of them was actually in and fine but they took it out anyways because my mouth is so tiny I couldn't actually brush the damn thing. The other 2 were impacted though.

I had six or eight wisdom teeth (some kind of weird genetic thing), all impacted, IIRC. I kind of hate my teeth actually. They're not the crooked or anything, but they're kind of unruly. I just discovered recently that even after two years of braces, my bottom teeth (particularly one the molars) don't want to stay in the same damn place.

No kidding. Their entire Out 100 (which actually consisted of 109 people) only had 24 people in it who weren't cisgendered males. And out of the four people on the cover -- three men and then Katy Perry. Wut. Would it really be so hard to feature someone who was a) actually a queer woman and/or b) at least someone who didn't make their name on the exploitation and objectification of queer women?

Agreed. God, that's like... wow, retarded.

I mean, sure men can be important for queer women, but you'd think that, you know, some QUEER WOMEN would be in the top 100 people who represent queer women? That's really sick and retarded.

Well, technically the Out 100 is supposed to be "Our annual list of the year’s most interesting, influential, and newsworthy LGBT people."

Only, it's really pretty much just a list of people who rich gay white men think are cool. Women are severely underrepresented, and trans people may as well not exist at all.

People were complaining to the editor about how Katy Perry is pretty much, you know, anti-LGBT, and someone talked about Jill Sobule's "I Kissed A Girl" song in the 90s and how it was totally more queer-positive, and the editor was like, "Well, okay, but I can't dance to it, and sometimes that's all I want in my music."

Sigh.

I really like Jill Sobule's song, btw.

Re wisdom teeth:

I do not have wisdom teeth. Just like my Aunt, I was born with teeth that did not need braces, nor did I have wisdom teeth. I am telling you, I am the next step in human evolution! Marvel at my teeth.

Thank God I was born without wisdom teeth. I hate pain... And I hear it is painful. Sorry to all you people that just got your teeth pulled! I hope you get better soon!

I didn't find it was too painful, even with my weird teeth. Face got pretty puffy for a few days, but that was about it.

I had my wisdom teeth out last summer.. Wasn't as bad as people made it seem, but HELL, it was boring not being able to move from the icepacks that I was apparently required to keep on them. >>

---

I am annoyed that any time I need to be somewhere, someone else is already happening. On December 6th, I have to be somewhere about an hour and a half away for a school thing for most of the day, but that's the weekend my dad's workplace has it's yearly customer appreciation thing. There is /nothing else/ happening in December (save for the usual slew of Christmas-y things towards the tail end of the year), but, of course, those two things had to be on the same day. Of course, the teacher that is supposed to take me and the rest of us who are going, has to be somewhere else as well, so we need to find another driver anyway -__-

This seems to happen a lot.

GRRR! I'm done trying to fucking help you! HELP YOURSELF FOR ONCE.

You don't even fucking care about any girl you date and you WONDER why you're single so much! And when a NICE girl finally likes you, you hurt her! FUCK YOU. You don't deserve her anyways, you worthless piece of shit. I can't believe I even dated you that time, I'm so glad it didn't work because you're a MORON.
