chickens in the morning, chickens in the evening...

Had an enjoyable breakfast date with a felow Valley Girl. This was one of my first attempts at eating something other than soup. It was tricky but cutting everything into tiny pieces helps.
After breakfast, we walked around the little village which is known for it's abundance of (abandoned) roosters. I lost cound after 37...
In the pink room, I hung more chickeny goodness...again, just don't look anywhere else...

hello brace face

So, do you remember when I was going to get major reconstructive surgery on my jaw and then braces to fix the wonky, wonky bite but my insurance couldn't guarantee coverage so we went on a roadtrip for three months instead? I went to see a few more orthos and not a one would touch me without sugery. Eight years later, my dentist tells me she can help...my mouth won't be perfect but we can get things moved around enough for my tongue to fit where it should instead of getting the crap bitten out of it and maybe it will stop pushing down those bottom teeth...can you see them? All swoopy like that? Oof! She's also going to bring the duet of teeth that dance along the roof of my mouth forward! I have no idea what to expect.

Before my dentist even tried anything, she took molds of my teeth and shared them at a convention of over 200 dentists so they could brainstorm a plan of action. The braces are a six month dealio but I will most likely be wearing them for twice as long if not more. Eeps!
I've only had them on for about a week and I'm getting a wee bit tired of soup but this pureed mushroom soup with a drizzle of Trader Joe's General Tsao's hits the spot!

the very last bag of my favorite tea

I picked up this tea from Blue Q years ago...two boxes of it, and yes, I may have been swayed by the packaging as I am a complete fool for packaging but the tea? The tea was surprisingly good. A black tea with Jasmine? Now what am I going to do? Pinkies up!
