Helping raise money for teeth since cancer took the old ones!

So, I’m SO CLOSE to my goal, you guys. Seriously, it’s been a year and a half of not eating sandwiches or chips or anything that involves chewing anything at all.
And no smiling.
I’m about to have teeth, y’all.
If you want to read about how it got to this point, my cancer story is here.
If you have questions? ASK ME HERE. OR EMAIL ME HERE.
Please, please, please donate and reblog. THANKS!

    Vote for Don’t Leave Me Behind by Jennie Klesman:

    Even in 2027, time travel is still science fiction.  But when Michelle Tracer gains access to a prototype machine, fantasy becomes a surreal reality.  The college sophomore finds herself in the body of a teenage student at Amat High 16 years in her past.  The machine thrusts her into the life of this stranger, leaving her stranded and alone in a place she’s only read about in history books.

    There was nowhere else she would have rather gone.  Michelle never saw herself as strange or abnormal, but she always kept her morbid fascination a secret.  Then again, she never imagined that she would find herself face to face with the most infamous teenager of the millennia: Leon Thomas.

    On May 1, 2012 Leon will commit the deadliest school shooting in American history. Michelle cannot help but gravitate towards him after having spent years studying the event that shook the country to its core.  Now she sees the opportunity to witness what actually happened.  Yet the closer they become the more she sees who he really is, causing her to question her own role in shooting that she is convinced must take place.  Michelle may have a strong influence on Leon, but what she doesn’t expect is the impact he will have on her; leaving her conflicted whether her presence there is saving lives, or dooming them.

  5. 62 Things the Avengers are Not Allowed to Do.

    • 1. Tony is not allowed to replace the entire contents of the cafeteria with pop-tarts just because Thor has declared it the ‘food of the gods.’
    • 2. Natasha is not allowed to interrogate new S.H.I.E.L.D. employees and dispose of the ones she deems unworthy.
    • 3. Clint is not allowed to continue insisting that is the final step of the interview process to terrified new hires.
    • 4. Tony is not allowed to broadcast sing-along songs into the Hulk-cage, no matter amusing he finds teaching Hulk “Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around”

    • 6. Bruce is not allowed to hack into personnel files to look up blackmail material on Director Fury.

    • 8. Thor is not allowed to be naked at Headquarters. Ever.
    • 9. Steve is not allowed to address any female S.H.I.E.L.D. agents as ‘little lady,’ ‘broad,’ or ‘dame.’ It only ends in getting slapped.

    • 11. Director Fury should never again be addressed as “Dad”
    • 12. Agent Hill is not the Avenger’s wicked stepmother.

    • 24. The laboratory is not Tony and Bruce’s ‘Super Secret Genius Clubhouse.’ They are not allowed to bar entry to employees based on IQ test results.

    • 29. Pants are not optional at team meetings.

    • 32. MC Hammer did not write Thor a theme song.
    • 33. Gumby is not the love child of Bruce Banner and Reed Richards.
    • 34. Natasha and Clint are not allowed to impersonate members of the clergy ever again. Ever.
    • 35. Blasting ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy’ at top volume into Bruce’s room on loop overnight is not an effective way to suppress the Hulk.
    • 36. Hawkeye is not sitting in the rafters waiting to pick off people playing Galaga on their computer during work hours.
    • 37. Tony is not allowed to bribe Natasha and Clint to physically, emotionally or psychologically torture General Ross for being ‘a great big douchebucket’ and ‘being mean to Brucie-kins.’
    • 38. Steve is ‘Captain America’ not ‘Captain New York and those 49 other, lesser states.’
    • 39. ‘Hulk SMASH!’ is not an effective diplomatic policy.
    • 40. Tony is not allowed to buy the Dodgers and move them back to Brooklyn to apologize for lighting Steve’s hair on fire.
    • 41. The phrase ‘Trust me, I’m a doctor’ never leads anywhere good.
    • 42. It is not funny to dare Bruce to drink three quarts of green food coloring before a urine test.
    • 43. Steve is not to be introduced as ‘Captain Tightpants’ or ‘The All-American Virgin.’
    • 44. The Avengers do not ‘charge into battle, naked like the Celts.’ Except for The Hulk. Sometimes.

    • 52. A robot Tony built does not count as a chaperone.
    • 53. Nikola Tesla is not a vampire being held in the bowels of S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters.
    • 54. Tony and Bruce are not allowed to go searching for him in the name of Science!
    • 55. Clint’s super-power is not ‘being super-annoying.’
    • 56. The following words and phrases are never to be uttered over communication devices during an active mission ever again: “Exploring sexuality,” “Necrophilia,” “It’s getting hot in herr, so take off all your clothes,” “I hate everyone on this mission and I wish they’d die in a fire,” “Nick Fury can go suck on a big bag of sausages,” references to Bruce’s giant stash of weed, mention of anyone’s erection, or “Shawarma.”
    • 57. If it makes Tony giggle for more than 30 seconds, it isn’t allowed.
    • 58. If it makes Natasha crack a smile, it’s probably illegal.
    • 59. Thor taking Jane to see Asgard does not count as an alien abduction. Clint should stop referring to it as such.
    • 60. Just because Bruce agreed to work in Tony’s lab, does not mean he needs to get a “Property of Stark Industries” tattoo.
    • 61. Tony is not allowed to design a robot to draw said tattoo on Bruce when he falls asleep in the lab.
    • 62. Post-mission reports to Director Fury should not start out ‘So let me explain…’
  6. 'Brave' came out today and I'm actually irritated…

    In which I have thoughts about ‘Brave’ and thoughts about other peoples thoughts and criticisms about critics and actual… feelings? I don’t know. Feel free to disregard, complain right back, etc.

  8. I’m the kind of girl that keeps ticket stubs and passes and pins and things like that and, for years now, I’ve had a little plastic box with all my keepsakes in it and I’ve kept that box in a bigger box that I’ve toted with me everywhere as I’ve moved from Hawaii to Seattle to Texas to Seattle and all over.A few weeks ago, my friend Jen and I were at Joann’s Fabric looking for crafty things to do and I saw this wooden box that had leather straps lining it and I thought, “I could put keepsakes in that!” In the aisle right next to the woodworking stuff was all the scrapbooking stuff and she mentioned decoupage and I thought, “Actually, I could decoupage the HELL out of this box if I took the leather straps off…” and so, FINALLY, today we got together and I was able to put together my Stars & Stripes Keepsake Box. :DI’m totally in love with it. I painted parts of the box and I cut the leather straps and put them on the sides so it kind of resembles a steamer trunk… and it’s awesome. I put all my stubs and tickets and passes and pins in it and it’s perfect.:D

  9. nice night fury tatt :)

    Thanks so much! :) It’s totally appropriate for what’s going on in my life and I love ‘How To Train Your Dragon’, which makes it even better.

  10. TATTOO!Well, I did it. :D I went and I got my ‘Night Fury' tattoo and you'll have to pardon me for saying so, but it's fucking badass. Much thanks and love to Jibo at Diamond Tattoo in Renton, WA.As I said back in [this post], the movie ‘How To Train Your Dragon’ has a lot of sentimental value for me. My nephew, Jack, and I watched it a lot while I was recovering from various cancer surgeries and also during chemo & radiation.When I found out that I had to have all my teeth taken out as a result of said treatments, well… this tattoo seemed like the perfect way to commemorate that kind of occasion.Why commemorate it? Because I’m not going to be toothless forever. Just like Toothless wasn’t actually toothless. He was a badass dragon, feared, and he never gave up relearning how to fly with a little help from his friends.I have awesometastic friends and I’m not giving up on teeth or anything else. So, yes. Commemorate. Remember. Grow. Love. Learn.Night Fury.

  12. I want to be the bright optimist, too: Another lil update re: pathology stuffs»

    thebrightoptimist:

    Saw my ENT today. HE looked over my pathology reports, peered into my mouth, then felt around, too. Apparently, the tumor is just a little smaller than a dime. He says it’s nothing like what I had going on before but, like all bad little things, it’s not allowed to nest in my mouth.

    SO?…

  13. All the fun cancer stuff…

    So, I know Nikki (CatsNotCancer) did some talking about me before she had to step away from her blog for a bit, but I do most of MY writing about my cancer journey over at:

    THE BRIGHT OPTIMIST

    And I just updated with all the news about my surgery and hyperbarics and how I am a week out.

    That post can be found (here). Thank you all for reading along.

  14. SURGERY DATE: April 6th (FRIDAY)
Complete extraction of my teeth, plus they’re going to fix my face so that all the edema that’s been haunting me since my original surgery will no longer be an issue.
I’ll be toothless for almost a year, and I’ll be following a no-chew diet.
Even if you can’t donate (especially if you can’t donate) PLEASE REBLOG. A dollar is a more than I had before:
Fundraising page is [HERE].
