For the love of ALL THAT IS HOLY, peoples.

I made it through work yesterday! Today I made it to my car, and that's it. All the excitement like standing around and talking yesterday buggered up the patches the dentist gave me, and now I think my stupid mouth is infected again, and for crying out loud. My coworker asked me yesterday if I felt angry at myself for not healing faster. I mean, no, there's nothing I can do about having Miraculously Non-Healing Soft Tissue, but I really hate that I'm not Tough Enough To Handle It. You know? Apparently, extreme pain makes me puke or pass out, and there doesn't seem to be much I can do about that, except lie in bed and feel like a really horrible person for basically not showing up at work for ALL OF FEBRUARY for a stupid outpatient surgery. I TOTALLY SUCK, GRRR.

Once I feel that it is Safe For Me To Drive, I will go to the dentist again and get repatched, and then slink into work for a few hours. I guess. *swears a lot*

And here is your Happy Thought Of The Day:

Star Trek: Enterprise. Is anyone else re-watching it on SciFi and finding it infinitely more fun this time around? Maybe it's that the stress of the show possibly being cancelled is gone, I don't know. Maybe it's because I haven't yet gotten to the episodes where Archer has dirty fantasies while his dog's in sickbay, or the one where T'Pol's in heat and nearly humps Reed's spacesuit, or that time she became a junkie and shot up into her neck. But seriously, I'm in love, that kind of blind, nostalgic love where I lose track of reason. I even listen to the theme song all the way through sometimes. And yesterday Captain Archer gave the much lamented Gazelle Speech and I actually went "Huh, that speech isn't nearly as ridiculously out of context as I remember it being."

And "Carbon Creek" is an extra supah adorable episode that I love, and it always makes me think of a wee baby T'Pol listening to stories and fantasizing about this crazeh planet called Earth.

Hey there, ouchy person. I am a terribly lax commenter, but I have been following your tales of dental woe, with much, well, WOE!!!!! May I say that when a person is in extreme pain surely they are SUPPOSED to pass out??? This is what I have always thought!! Being brave and going to work would not have entered my mind as an alternative!

You have my total and utter sympathy and awe. I do so hope someone comes along and lays Super Sekrit Healing Powered Hands on you SOON, because this much pain? Is unfair to Little Red. ::stamps::
Little Red: sox - varitek it's okay - juniper_shademylittleredgirl on February 21st, 2007 11:00 pm (UTC)
Well, yes, I suppose I shouldn't curse out my natural responses to stuff. BUT STILL. I want to be a useful employee!!

As far as the Super Sekrit Healing Powered Hands, I'm starting to regret that I turned the Mormons down when they were all "We can bless you in the name of Jesus!" Because that may have been helpful.

"Carbon Creek" is such adorable Vulcan love. Awww. And it just explains T'Pol so well! I just love that T'Pol's ancestress invented velcro. VELCRO IS FROM SPACE ALIENS!!!

You absolutely do NOT wish that you remembered that Gazelle. It's all:

Ambassador Soval: *tells Archer & crew that they are freaking morons for screwing up the galaxy*
Admiral Forrest: "Well, that was kind of harsh. But yah, you're kind of right. Sorry about all the screwing up of the galaxy."
Archer: "Once when I was twenty, I saw A GAZELLE BEING BORN. And it was A BEAUTIFUL MIRACLE OF NATURE, and therefore you should let us continue to go around breaking stuff!"
Soval: "... That makes absolutely no sense in this conversation."

Sounds incredibly unpleasant. I really hope your Wisdom Teeth Of Doom stop hurting soon !!

Also, OMG I have a wisdom tooth coming through at the moment and am totally terrified it'll have to be extracted!!
Little Redmylittleredgirl on February 21st, 2007 10:50 pm (UTC)
Oh! Honey, don't be scared. If they have to extract it I PROMISE it will not suck as much as mine have, because if it's already starting to come through, the damage done to your mouth & jaw will be mucho less. Mines were just impacted and sideways and very messy to begin with. Sister's, on the other hand, came through just fine with no dental help, just hurt for a few months a bit as they were coming in. I wish that for you!

Oh Dear God.

The gazelle speech.

I had sucessfully blocked that from my memory. :P
Little Red: trek - evil hoshi omg! - naushikamylittleredgirl on February 21st, 2007 11:06 pm (UTC)
Yeah, yeah, no. The Gazelle Speech unfortunately lives on. I think that having seen the entire series... the first season looks so much less painful by comparison, you know? Like Archer flails around self-importantly or T'Pol gets emotional and I'm all yeah, well, this is nothing. And after the Vulcan three-parter in the fourth season, I can forgive Soval for being such an emotional bastard, you know?

I bought Season 4 off Ebay, silly me didn't remember that I detested that season simply because of the final episode, and I had to resell it on Ebay yesterday because it was making me mad remembering that I bought it in the first place!

But season 3 is love.

Also, the Mirror eps are love too.

Little Red: trek - trip/t'pol i love you - ashismmylittleredgirl on February 22nd, 2007 01:04 am (UTC)
OMG, no! Season 4 is ultimate super LOVE! The last episode didn't happen. It was just... evil parallel universe of not-happening, because it doesn't fit with the Next Gen timeline and is SUCKY, and that is all the proof I need.

Whatever, I love S4 just because I fangirl T'Pol's mom like CRAZEH.

The mirror eps are awesome. I want a big mirror universe marathon set in chronological order. It would rawk.

I'm totally in love with Enterprise again. I do think some of it is not worrying about it being canceled, and just being able to ENJOY it!
Little Red: trek - trip/t'pol i love you - ashismmylittleredgirl on February 22nd, 2007 07:23 am (UTC)

I was so madly in love with season 1 the first time around, too, but this is just way more exciting, because I'm so much less hard on it (all the angst has boiled off, I think). I love pre-space-crack T'Pol and I'm even really liking Archer this time around, and I really like their friendship and respect. Especially knowing that there's going to be all the delightful Love And Romance later on, it's kind of fun to still be in the ensemble portion of the series. Wheeee!

And ... I still can't get into Enterprise. [is sad] I've tried to watch, but it's like the first time around. Just can't get through an entire ep. Maybe someday.

I guess it takes some dedication borne of a lifetime of Star Trek religious obsession. Oh well!

*hugs you, but not too hard* Feel better soon, I hope! Get yourself to that dentist person!
Little Redmylittleredgirl on February 22nd, 2007 07:27 am (UTC)
I did! And they were helpful! And it was the sweet assistant girl who shows me lots of pity and reassures me that my mouth is freakishly weird and I'm not actually The Biggest Sissy To Roam The Earth.

At least I only have to do this once.


I mean, so long as I never end up in a scary Soviet prison or something where they rip out your teeth.

I think we may be moving well and soundly into Mary Sue territory here, but I couldn't help myself. *snuggles you*

He can't quite tell if she's green or ashen, but the lighting in the basement has never been good. Her hand shakes a little as she brushes hair out of her eyes.

"Go home, Monica," he says softly. He's trying not to be pushy, overprotective. She's an adult and knows how to take care of herself, but he can't stand to see her in so much pain.

"M'fine, John," she mumbles. She keeps trying not to move her mouth when she talks. It hurts worse when she moves her mouth, apparently.

"Did you go back to the dentist?" he asks again. She rolls her eyes; she's seen more of her dentist in the past two weeks than anyone ever wants to see of a dentist. John keeps thinking that maybe next time the dentist will figure out how to fix her. Or that Monica needs a new dentist.

"She doesnknow why they're not healing. 'Ve got abnormal teeth."

"Maybe we should open an x-file for them," he jokes.

She giggles, then gasps and grimaces, and suddenly she's completely white. He's across the room in a couple of steps and catches her as she slides out of her chair. She had warned him that the pain was making her pass out, but he isn't ready for this, and he panics, trying to wake her without jostling her head, hurting her mouth. "Monica, Monica, wake up! Dammit, wake up!" He needs to get her to the hospital, and he can't reach the phone.

"I'm 'wake," she whispers as he starts to shift her off of his lap and onto the floor, and her hand reaches up to grip his. "This 's so stupid."

"You can't help being in pain," he reassures her. He's relaxing again after his panic. She's no worse than she's been for the past two weeks, but he hates it: hates that she's in pain and hates that he can't fix her. "Come on," he says, helping her sit slowly. "Let's get you home."

Is anyone else re-watching it on SciFi and finding it infinitely more fun this time around?

Yes. Duh!

Okay, the VERY FIRST incarnation of the theme song wasn't bad. But then season 2 started and it changed and I remembered how after that it kept getting WORSE and WORSE. Until s4, it got kind of better. But I almost actually enjoy it sometimes. :O

Agreed on the Gazelle thing. He started, and I was like "OH NO IT'S THE GAZELLE SPEECH" and then it was over in two seconds and I could have sworn it was huger and more ridiculous, but I guess we all just blew it way out of proportion. IMAGINE THAT, fans blowing things out of proportion. *lol*

CARBON CREEK was like the best ep evah. Vulcan storytelling, yay!
Little Red: trek - trip/t'pol i love you - ashismmylittleredgirl on February 22nd, 2007 07:18 am (UTC)
OMG. I forgot how completely adorable T'Pol was before the crack!whore-ness took over. (She was adorable after that, too, but in a scary sort of way where you sort of wanted to strap her to something until she stopped twitching.)

It's totally the first incarnation of the theme song! That one is definitely LESS bad. We thought it was HELL ON EARTH until they jazzed it up with bongos and whatever the hell in season 3, and then we were all "bring back the awful theme song, original version!"

The gazelle speech was so horrifying at the time, and now it's a drop in the bucket. :) I'm glad I'm not alone there!

I just love "Carbon Creek" and the Vulcan storytelling. Bwahahaha. And the scene with T'Pol and the handbag just GETS ME every time. I'll bet T'Pol's Totally Awesome Mother gave it to her before her Earth assignment... that, or she got it as a kid and has Treasured It ever since. :) *snuggles wee T'Pol*
