thinking about recipes!

It's Friday today and my tooth still hurts.... I'm being slowly tortured...I can't eat since yesterday because my gums around it are swollen to the point where I can't close my mouth, so trying to chew is a total waste of time... So I can only dream about food xD I went to the supermarket in the afternoon, after going to the dentist. Another total waste of time. Anyway, I bought stuff for the house a few stuff for the fridge (since I can't eat, why the hell would I buy food????) and I kept dreaming about all the recipes I'm going to cook when my tooth gets better :D

I thought about making cake and cookies, I LOVE BETTY CROCKER so, I often buy her products, which are delicious and easy to make. Her cake mix, her cookie mix and mostly, her pancake mix, are the best I have ever eaten :) You can try to make them, they have easy instructions and you can have fun in the process! You may use low fat products, which don't affect the taste :D

Hmmm.... what else? Oh, yes! Like I said before, pancakes!! (that mix can be used for many purposes and it's delicious) Do try them at home, with Maple syrup, or any syrup you like! You can add fruit, ice cream, whipped cream, jam, peanut butter.....and so much more! Your options are limitless!!!
Thinking about sweet stuff, now I'm also fantasizing about warm brownies with ice cream... What a torture-to think about food and not being able to chew anything :@
I also want to eat my famous corn with eggs and bacon!!! I like that recipe so much xD I made it myself, and I try to make it often, but I can't eat eggs very often, because of the cholesterol.. Yesterday I was thinking about fajitas... and rice with chilly con carne.... and chinese food...and.... well, maybe I should stop now, because the floor is wet from my saliva.....
Have fun and bon app├ętit!!!
(Next time we'll think about clothes and stuff :p)

serious tooth problem gets me in a bad mood

This week I can't even get out of bed, let alone accomplice anything more than drag my ass to the bathroom and then to the kitchen to pop some pills. Damn over-the-counter painkillers are worthless :@ my tooth hurts so bad I can't go to sleep, and when I finally sleep, I wake every 3 hours to pop some more pills because the pain has started drilling my brain again..
Such agony comes from a "wisdom tooth"... that particular tooth begun coming out 3 years ago. For some unknown reason, it stoped after a while, and I had to have my gums sliced around it so I don't bite them... And suddenly, on Friday morning, it decided that it wanted to get the rest of it's ass out. LOL.
How could I be so lucky? It wasn't coming out. It was creating an abscess!! And of course it's underneath, so my dentist couln't see it. Since I wasn't improving and was only getting worse, he precribed antibiotics (2000mg of "Augmentin" per day!). But I NEED PAINKILLERS!!!! Some that accually help!! The ones I'm already taking are "depon", "nurofen", "Xefo", "niflamol", most of them are not only painkillers, but inflammatory too. The pain only stops for a couple of hours and then it's driving me nuts again.. I'm using big amounts of them every day and I still can't handle the pain :(
Anyway, besides my crappy mood, and my snapping at everyone within a 5 metre range, I'm trying to get a grip. That's why I'm writting here, to forget the pain that makes my ear feel like someone is using an ice-pick to poke my brain :@

Things that I've done these days (while in pain) to make myself feel a little better: listening to Alien Vampires, watching Southpark episodes on www.southparkstudios.com, surfing the net for gothic clothes and watching youtube tutorials on make up. That is something I do regularly, even if I'm not in pain :p Cooking hasn't been on my priorities, 'cause all the toothache and the painkiller OD have made my appetite go byebye. That's not so bad though, maybe I'll lose a pound or two-that's always gooooood ^_^
Hmm... what else? Oh, yeah, I've watched a few movies -so much time to kill at home, when you feel so crappy to go out and play with the rest of the kids :p "Inglourious basterds", "gamer", "lock,stock and two smocking barrels", and lots of southpark. Also, old disney cartoons with donald duck and mickey mouse. I prefer the old ones better (mickey-1929, donald-1941) they are so much fun! And you can really appreciate the quality :)
Anyway, it's time to go take a bath and then straighten my hair (as always) and then do my nails and go to sleep.

I'll be back with more interesting things than a toochache :D (and stronger painkillers I hope!)

101 things to do before you're old and boring!

Hello everybody :)
My name is Danni and this blog is a way to leave my imprint on the world :p
Actually, I created this blog for 2 reasons:
First, to write my daily or weekly notable achievements trying to complete the "101 things to do before you're old and boring" list. I came across this book a few years ago, and at the time it felt like a good idea to buy it and have some fun.. I never completed all the tasks of course, they are too many and I had other things in mind than trying to complete a silly list of obscure stuff... So anyway, here we are today, as I am starting a blog (thing to do #36:start your own blog) to record all the stupid stuff I'm going to do. You can find it here: www.101thingstodo.co.uk, as well as other books from the same series.
The second reason for creating this blog is to write about all kinds of interesting stuff a 22year-old student who dresses in black might want to write about (like environmental stuff, culture, politics, traveling, studying, gothic style, music, etc etc)...
To start having fun, I'll post the list of the 101 things to do, and I'll note the ones I have already completed or are under completeness (lol).
