scarface pictures and dirty jobs @ 11:06 pm

Tags:

My face is hurting again, so I've had to take more pain meds. Since I'm staying here for a while, I'm going to call the periodontist and set up an appointment to get the stitches out and tell him about the pain. I'm afraid I'm going to run out of meds before the pain gets better. I don't want to get addicted or have people think I'm addicted, but I'm afraid that 'm going to run out. One pill isn't doing it for me.

On that subject, Britany took pictures of my face complete with bruises. Denise says that my bruise looks like a tornado. Joel, my roommate says it looks like I ate blackberry cobbler blindfolded. Either that, or I forgot to wipe my face.

You be the judge. Sighted people, what does it look like to you? Thanks to Britany for making these reasonably small so I don't have to have lj resize them for me. I love scrapbook :).

The bruise close up in gory detail. What's it look like to you?

If anyone wants to give textual descriptions for us blind dudes, go for it.


I'm watching Dirty Jobs on Discovery and I really love that show. Some think it's really gross, but they've done so many gross jobs that they're actually doing direty jbs that aren't that gross. Right now they're pouring concrete and stamping it into various shapes. They're apparently going to clean up penguin crap later on in the episode and that'll be neat.

Need to go to bed and make face feel better. Note to those reading and to myself if I read this ten years down the road, never get gum grafting surgery unless you really really have to. It's PAINFUL!

Dude, you look totally cracked out in the first pic. Anyway, I think it kinda looks like some blueberries exploded on your chin. Or maybe like your chin got hit with some paintballs. I think the blueberry thing is more accurate. THe big bruise looks just like squished blueberry in a muffin.

Anyway, enough about how awful you look haha just kidding... GLad you called me tonight.

I like the blueberry analogy. I thought of it this morning when I ate a blueberry muffin for breakfast :).

Ouchie!!! It looks like you got punched in the chin by Mike Tyson and I can see now why you're in so much pain. I hope you feel better soon!!! It doesn't look swollen or anything, so that's good, and you're still smiling in the pictures so that's good too. =)

Whenever someone tells me "what happened to your face" I keep trying to come up with a really good yet false story about it. "I asked a girl out and she didn't just say no but she freakin punched me in the face and then said no" "Someone mugged me, got one upper cut in, and then I took care of him" Yeah, I like to make up stories.

it looks to me like someone took the hot end of a cigarette to your chin in at least four spots -- probably feels that way, too.

I never really thought of the cigarette burn idea, but now that you mention it, it does kind of feel like what one might feel if one was burnt by a cigarette burn. Actually, it's kind of like an ice ream headache but in the jaw. Very creative Pabl, props to you :). I still have your number in my phone, sometime I should give you a call and catch up wit you. I'm a bit lost as to what you're doing now as I haven't read back far enough in your journal :).

Hi!

Well, to save you some effort reading back issues, I recently gave up my job with the Marine Corps in the Pentagon and went back to British Aerospace, supporting the planning/financial side of the Federal Aviation Administration. I was at the Pentagon for almost eleven months. It happens a Pentagon assignment was my last job in the active duty Air Force, too -- having left there in 1989 to return to civilian life. Now I'm back with my old buddies, doing familiar work with the FAA. I started that kind of stuff in 1995; so it's like putting on an old shoe again.

Call any time; but preferably after 1800 Eastern time.

Paul
