Sorry for not posting Friday. I actually ended up at the dentist again in the morning since I figured as long as I have to get the crowns on my two front teeth replaced I might as well get all of my teeth whitened as well so I can match the new permanent crowns to a hue that is more white than yellow. Unfortunately I have really sensitive teeth so the end of the whitening itself was pretty painful and then for the rest of the day I had little zappy pains radiating all over my mouth so I didn't do anything but lay on the couch and count the hours until I could take more Ibuprofen. Yes I am a HUGE baby when it comes to pain.
Today I'm going to finish up the 29 Things About Me list but first the winner of the Birthday Giveaway is: Sierra Rios. So if you're Sierra, just shoot me an email to LaurenRaeGallagher@gmail.com and I'll tell you how to claim your prize! Thanks so much to everyone who entered/shared/tweeted I was blown away by the number of comments I got. Seriously blown away. You people are awesome.
Ok. Moving on. Continuing with #16.
16. I feel sick 30 minutes after almost every single meal. I know I'm sensitive to dairy and shouldn't be eating it, but that is probably not going to happen. I'm afraid to get more extensive food allergy testing done because OMG what if I am allergic to pasta and dill pickles and pez? Pez has gotten me through many a tough moment. Mostly because the last time I was having a mental breakdown, I put my drugs in an Animal (the muppet) pez dispenser and carried it around with me at all times.
Here is a picture of my desk right now:
17. Yes that is a tiny T-Rex on my desk. If I were ever to be a dinosaur I think I would definitely pick the T-Rex. And you might say "But Lauren! You couldn't possibly be a T-Rex, your arms are much too long!" And to that I will respond, that is exactly why I would be the baddest ass T-Rex in the era. Because I would lure my prey to me by being all "Woe is me with my tiny stump arms!" and then when they got close enough I would be like JUST KIDDING and shoot out my unnaturally long arms and snatch delicious snacks into my mouth. Then since I would have to spend much less time hunting than other T-Rexes I could spend my time doing more important things, like admiring my tail and seeing how big of a tree I could knock down with my tail. I've also thought about what kind of dinosaur Ryan would be and have decided probably a Pachycephalosaurus. For a couple of reasons. One, the name translates to thick-headed lizard" and that seems fitting and two, there is a striking resemblance.
