*ahem* Important Archaeological Literature

I'm now entering day 5 of not having wisdom teeth. It's been entirely less traumatic than my previous experience and my face swelled up not at all. However, I've still eaten my way through a packet of 32 ibuprofen/paracetamol tablets and I suspect the left side is a little infected. That's fine in that my body fights off infections like an infection-fighting machine - but while it's doing it there's throbbing and unpleasantness and I'm kind of over pain for the time being. I expect that by tomorrow it'll be healed. Yup.

Meanwhile, I've been doing a lot of reading because while the pain isn't crippling, it is constant and it makes it hard to work on focusey things like art or school work.

That was a nice long weekend. In between mammoths and bonking, I:

Made a skirt, repaired a broken one, prepared to make another tutu/hair costume combo, made a flamenco hairpiece out of tubular crin and fake roses, cleaned the house, went to the gym twice, did the shopping, ate an easter egg, made soup for the first time in my life, watched 3 episodes of Gossip Girl, finished painting my balls, Downloaded All the Zero Cult, went skating and gave myself a blister in a weird place on my leg, baked some cookies, cleaned the inside of the car, shouted my two favourite men brunch in the middle of the afternoon, pruned all my plants, gave away a suitcase*, and slept in every day.

There should be more long holidays.

* I put it in Cuba Mall with a sign on it saying "Free suitcase, retro as, also magic." It was gone in less than 10 minutes.
