Mmm laughing gas.  
So I had my wisdom teeth removed yesterday. Surgery people! In my mouth! That combines my fear of surgery with my exptreme dislike of oral pain. Yeah. So I went in and while I was walking down the hall I saw some guy getting in the chair and there were machines and ivs and people everywhere. I was all oh awesome. Then I get to mine and this girl starts hooking me up to machines and shit. And then some other lady sticks this tube with laughing gas in it on my nose (laughing gas is like the greatest man made invention ever by the way.) and then the doctor comes in and they stick an iv in me (which was cool cause I actually like needles. I know I'm a freak. Stop looking at me like that) Then the lady asks if the gas is working yet and I'm all not really and then she asks the doctor if he needs FORCEPS. Like AHH. And then my vision goes a little blurry and I feel woosy. And as I'm looking up I see that overhead light and the machines are beeping and I see the doctor looming over me with a syringe. And the last thing I remember was them strapping my arms to the chair. It was so bizarre. It was exactly like in movies when they show someone from their point of view as they are in surgery or being tortured or something. I will never be able to watch movies like that the same way again. The next thing I remember I was in a recovery room laughing at my mom. Apparently I willinglike (willingly. I am SO high) got up and they helping (helped. Jeebus) me walk down the hall. So I'm sitting there just laughing my ass off while all the other patients are like crying and totally freaked out. I was all hallucinating and shit. My mom had like four eyes in a row and four eyebrows and two noses and I'm telling her all this as I'm laughing and pointing. Nothing else was double vision just her. Then I started talking about how I love laughing gas and how the hell did I get in here. Then I almost fell over. The nurse kept trying to get me to shut up cause I was still bleeding and they had to call the doctor back in cause I kept setting off the machines cause my heart rate was like double what it should be from my hysterical laughter. I would not shut up though. I have no idea how my mom understood me. The only reason I knew was because I knew what I was TRYING to say. That laughing gas was insane (you should all try it. Highly recommended). They finally let me go when I told my mom her face was back to normal. It was still working after I got home. The whole bottom half of my fave (face. I don't know why my brain refuses to type the words I want it to.) was numb and swollen and I kept funning (running. Stop it brain!) into the bathroom to laugh and make faces at myself. And now I'm on these crazy pain pills that are like morphine or something. Merphize? Meriphine? I don't know. All I know is that they make me really high. And I can STILL feel the pain. So I've decided to distract myself by talking to you guys. Also posting when high is fun. If you can't tell I get talkitive (is that spelled right? It doesnt look right. At least its the right word) when Im high. Come talk to me bitches! (I would do a cut on this but I can't remember how right now. So whatver.(yes that is what I call apologizing. Suck it.))

Hi! How the hell did you read that so fast? I JUST posted it!
Gabysquaringkarma on July 15th, 2006 03:50 pm (UTC)
The VM4 lends to fast reading speeds.
pandorapandora_17 on July 15th, 2006 03:56 pm (UTC)
That is true. It also might have to do with the fact that it talks (takes. I am so ready to disown my brain) me twice as long to process things right now so it just seems faster.

You are quite entertaining when not in a normal state of mind.
pandorapandora_17 on July 15th, 2006 04:21 pm (UTC)
Thank you! And hello.
babsonite on July 15th, 2006 04:23 pm (UTC)
Hello. I haven't really talked to you in a while, have I? How are things going in pandora_ville?
pandorapandora_17 on July 15th, 2006 04:30 pm (UTC)
Nope. Things are alright. I'm not going to say great because I'm having a hard time tying to eat mashed potatoes right now and that makes me sad.

How are things on your end? Oh I saw that you got your hair cut. It looks excellent. I approve.

I'm trying to figure out your use of Team Bagel here. I just can't quite get there.

Oh, you! Good to hear from you! And isn't anesthesia the craziest thing? You're out and then you're back and WHERE DID THE TIME GO?

*hugs*
pandora: Megpandora_17 on July 15th, 2006 05:18 pm (UTC)
Hey! It is crazy! Where DID the time go? I wonder how it came about. The idea is pretty out there. Who came up with it? I mean did they just start out by knocking the guy unconsious with a club or something and then discover it could be done with drugs later?

*waits for fountain of Cow knowledge to tell the history of anesthesia*

*hugs back*
*snuggles*
Polter-Cow: Smarter than mespectralbovine on July 15th, 2006 05:31 pm (UTC)
Well, I think the thought process was something like this:

A) Dude. Surgery FUCKING HURTS.
B) Yeah, I wish we had something that would make people not hurt.
C) Hey, you know what always makes me feel really good? DRUGS.
D) Like OPIUM?!
E) HELL YEAH.

Edgar Allen Poe! You are so needy.hellopoe on July 15th, 2006 05:35 pm (UTC)
Oh man, this is maybe my favorite post in the history of EVER, just so you know. And I totally know that feeling! When I had my wisdom teeth out I opened my eyes (back up, I swear it had been ONE MINUTE) and said to the nurse, "When does it start?" And she laughed at me and said, "You've been asleep for two hours. We're all done." WHAT? WHAAAAAAT? HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE??

It's the weirdest feeling in the world.
pandora: Cloudspandora_17 on July 15th, 2006 05:58 pm (UTC)
Thank you! That says a lot coming from you considering your posts are always hilarious. I know! It really is the oddest thing. I didn't even know where I WAS when I woke up. Anesthesia should be the 8th wonder of the world.

Did you see the Team Bagel!ness up there? Are you just going to let that slide? Represent the pancakes!
Edgar Allen Poe! You are so needy.: MISC  Team Pancakeshellopoe on July 15th, 2006 06:09 pm (UTC)
I saw! But see, I'm secretly totally on Team Bagel, since I eat those way more than Pancakes anyway. Shhhhhhhh, tell NO ONE.

rosiecatupanashad on July 15th, 2006 07:42 pm (UTC)
Hee. I know how you feel. I went through a procedure once that should have been very distressing and emotional, but the drugs made me so freaking drunk and happy I was like giggling and chatting during it (I wasn't completely out), and everyone thought I was a total freak.
pandora: Cloudspandora_17 on July 16th, 2006 03:20 am (UTC)
I think it has to do with your mindset. Like if you go in thinking it's going to hurt like hell you're going to focus on the pain when you get out. But if you don't worry yourself crazy it won't be so bad.

Everyone already thinks I'm a freak. *waves freak flag*

I honestly wish that I could honestly say that my wisdom-teeth-pulling experience was that pleasant. I was pretty much awake for the entire procedure and the laughing gas didn't so much put me to sleep as it did prevent me from being totally sure that I actually did open my mouth wider when the people with the sharp objects instructed me to do so. That wasn't so much trippy as it was scary as Hell.
pandora: Cloudspandora_17 on July 16th, 2006 03:29 am (UTC)
Oh that sucks. That was the one thing I was worried about happening. I even asked the doctor about waking up in the middle. Maybe he loaded me up with more drugs or something. It baffles me how they manage to get those teeth out.
ankaiankai on July 16th, 2006 09:33 pm (UTC)
With firm grips. I don't remember if I saw what they were doing, but I could hear them and I knew when they were pulling teeth.
melodinousmelodinous on July 17th, 2006 06:21 pm (UTC)
Hey! Dude, seriously, having my wisdom teeth out was possibly the best two weeks of my life. Don't get me wrong, it hurt like hell. I had 2 dry sockets, they lost part of my tooth and thought they'd sewn it back in, and the bleeding didn't stop for 2 days, but because of all that, they kept me on super pain killers for over 2 weeks! It ruled because, other than only being able to eat apple sauce and extra noodle soup, I was able to lay around on the couch, totally high, and it was acceptable. I try that now and I get yelled at for being lazy and stupid.


And if you haven't read my posts, I saw Kiefer!!! He's even more hot in person.
pandorapandora_17 on July 17th, 2006 07:18 pm (UTC)
Hi Mel! I have no idea what a dry socket is but it sounds unpleasant. And ICK to the tooth almost being sewn back in. Your dentist guy sounds like a nutjob. Yay for narcotics!

Shut up! Kiefer?! What was he doing in Maine? And more importantly did you get to hear the Sexy!Kiefer voice in person?
melodinousmelodinous on July 17th, 2006 07:52 pm (UTC)
He was in Maine promoting the band on his label, so basically he was there to draw people in and force them to listen to the band. And yes, I heard the Sexy!Kiefer voice in person, though not directed to me. I was standing about four feet away from him and could hear him talking to other people.

He's absolutely adorable.

Keep your eye out for Rocco Deluca and the something something and maybe you'll get to see Kiefer too!
