Change Has Not Come

While yesterday was indeed a historic day...

for the Wired change has come. The ortho visit resulted in zero news!! Same old..."blah blah...yes, you look great!...blah blah...ok...see you in 3 weeks!"


What I do know -- they were happy to see I actually wore my rubber bands this time. My back teeth did drop (phew!) and I can't have any larger of a wire put in my mouth (I am at the limit -- they don't make 'em any thicker).

What I don't know -- what's next.

I swear, every time I go, she does a little tweak...a little shave of a tooth here and there...and that's it!

"You're're close." -- yeah, whatever that means.

Lisa, the dental assistant offered as optimistic news as it can get...."I promise, you will get your braces off...sometime this year."

Thanks. I'm tempted to get Steelers colors put in.

Look Like Anyone?


One of my co-workers sent this to me today. Not sure what I should make of it but either way, love the wired-tips from the office!

Thrilling Monday

Hold onto your hats folks because today was craaaazy.

Guess what?! I went to Dr. Yamada's office and....picked up new rubber bands! How insane is that?!!!!

A day in the life of a Wired Lady. Jealous?
At least by bag doesn't quite look so much like crack anymore.
Trust camera apparently sucks taking close-ups.

Crack Cocaine or Rubber Band Bag?

So, I was walking to my car in the parking garage, after a long day at work, and as I pulled my rubber band bag from my purse (in every attempt to be 'good'), and all of a sudden freakin' shady this must look!

Just as I stopped myself from trying to pry open the damn thing (crappy plastic keeps riping - wish it was a Ziploc), some dude (also walking to his car) gave me their weirdest look.

I have to say, I deserved it. Pre-ortho round #2, if I saw someone holding a tiny white plastic pouch in a dark parking lot...I would pass judgement.

No, no need for A&E's "intervention" -- only my bicuspids to drop!

Fine, Look Hot Dakota...Just Keep Your Mouth Shut

At first I was pissed that Dakota Fanning (as seen at tonight's People's Choice Awards) got her braces off...before me!!!!

Damn you Dakota, why do you have to look good? Why couldn't you have turned out like all the other awkward and ugly child actors who try to keep working?!

I want to remember Dakota, in a way I can relate to her...

But THEN...after trying to grab a closer look of tonight's appearance...I noticed...THIS...

Her teeth are so not straight! Where did the metal plates go?! self-esteem hasn't totally been shot to the ground...entirely...yet.

Wire-Free and Proud to Be --- My Favorite Holiday Photo

This was a hilarious attempt by my father to take the yearly Cousins Christmas Photo. Say hello to Aunt Barbie...again!

Any photo where I have escaped a flash of metal, is one, you know...I gotta share.
