All Hallow's Eve

To wear the poncho or not? This is the question...

As many of you will remember, THIS happened to me last year when I wore my authentic "Ugly Betty" poncho to work.

Others may remember, the full wardrobe, HERE.

This year, what to do? That damn poncho cost serious dollars. I gotta get my moneys worth while it lasts, right?!

Tomorrow is the all-incredibly awkard "Dress Up for Halloween" at work. Always a real treat. :)

1 Intern. 2 Apples.

Meet Christine, braced-intern #2!! She's fantastic! (And I'm not just saying that because she's wired -- promise!)

Weird craving today for an apple -- all of a sudden, Stan, the video editing super star walked by with a bag of apples (looking like he just went to the orchard or something). Completely random! Sooo we each scored an apple! Cool! Right? Wrong...

Remembering our handicap....What's a wired girl to do?!?!

Well, Intern Christine was like...."Aww no, I'll bring this home and eat it when I have a knife.

Wired Lady was like..."F-THAT! I'm going in!"

I used to be like that...careful and whatever. After 1.5 years of metal...I...JUST EAT!

I Suck

Yes, I suck. It has been almost a week since my last post. But...I swear I have great excuses! #1 I moved. #2 No internet connection at new place #3 New website launched at work. Crazy, right?!

So, lets pretend no time has passes and let's just pick up from last week.

As you will see only one post below, I went to the dentist. This was not a happy experience. Not only did my gums bleed from horror, trauma and fear was also announced I have cavities they want to wait to fill till my braces are off (sooo probably around 2012).

This was taken after stepping out of the dentist's office....
Pretty Wired Lady, right?

Let's just say, it was a brutal visit.

"Not So Bad"

The words of the Doc post-cleaning on Saturday....

"For all you've been through...really, they aren't THAT bad."

Um...mind you...she said this after my gums were bleeding for an hour.

Yeah - not the best time.

Also - blame Steve the BF. I have a survival photo to share -- but Steve borrowed my camera and left me with the cord. So, I can't get to them!

The camera swap is happening tomorrow -- look for it!

Good Luck With That, Lady!

Saturday morning I have an appointment for a cleaning. As the workaholic I am, you know I LOVE that I can go to the dentist on a Saturday -- riiight?!

Ok. So, with this mouth of metal and fancy bands and junks...all I can say to that poor lady who will be digging into this mess is...

Good LUCK!! Damn...she's got her work cut out for her! Hell, hope she's a morning person!

And not to be 'sexist' -- but I just have never had a male at Dr. Nancy's -- but that's cool too.

Oh and...this is how great of a girlfriend I am..."Hey, Steve...on Saturday morning, think you can drop me off at Firestone to get my oil changed, and then drop me off at the dentist?" His response..."Wow. Hot."

Braces DENIED from Fashion Week!


Wellllll.....kind of....

Braces denied affffter late and went to the wrong location.

Sooooooo COMPLETELY the story of my life! HA. We had to laugh at the situation anyway...


This is my pseduo-attempt at a fashionable/artsy shot...or just didn't use a flash...


Lesson learned - get the address & be early to a fashion show.

Oh and...don't show up Ugly Betty-style.

Aunt Barbie: The Braces News Reporter

News received from the family AP wire --- email from my Aunt Barbie...

"Hey Steph, been thinking about you lately and I was at a meeting at work today and I noticed that a 60 year old nurse and a 40 year old guy had braces so you are not the oldest one in the world to have braces. I was telling them a little about your situation since the topic of conversation was BRACES."

Sooo...not this 'good' news? Oh. My. Life.

Wires for Credit!

We have a new intern at work...

Her name is Christine. Christine is smart. Christine is hard-working. Christine is energetic. Did I mention...Christine also has braces?

Favoritism by the Wired Lady? Never!

Hey, I only hire the interns...

Braces Helpful in Finding Apartments?

Today Steve and I went on the hunt for an apartment. Yes, big news in the Wired Lady world -- movin' in with the BF. Yup, that's me, the Wired Lady who will be livin' in sin but ya know what, the truth is, I'm stick of living out of my car and packing bags every night's time to...(cough cough) commit - oh and I really want to live with Steve. Any who....

Sooo anyway -- as luck would have it...the FIRST place we saw today...we LOVED!

AND...the landlord was so sweet! Complete luck, right?

Well, we turned in our applications and now we wait to see if the WL credit line is a 'yay' or a 'nay.'

No surprise here -- the landlord totally took note of my braces and asked when I'm getting them off. What?! Does everyone in this world have to ask me this question?!

Will braces help in the 'nice' factor of the application process. How could a poor and innocent Wired Lady possible be a bad tenant, riiiiight?!

Please, No More Drugs...

How is it that the meds the urgent care doctor gave me for the flu were stronger than any meds I got from jaw surgery? Seriously. I have never gotten more sick from antibiotics -- till this week.

So, after the lovely post with Daddy Wired Lady, the medicine kicked in and literally...I was out! Like...could not stand up -- the world is spinning -- I am high as a kite -- no way I can drive to work, stoned. It was CRAZY!

While the doctor insisted on me taking all 10 days of pills -- I had to call yesterday and beg to stop at 5.

So, while I did get to go back to work today...I am still waiting to see the lovely reaction to the pills being haulted. Fun. Fun. Fun. Is it me or is everyone sick with the flu all of a sudden?

Oh -- and sorry about not getting a chance to share Mamma Wired Lady...but she did make a cameo in the surgery video back in March. You have to watch closely.
