I saw my dentist today - luckily, it turned out I didn't need to get the root canal treatment - something I was soooo afraid of :D He just put a new filling in my tooth - no other teeth were affected by that disgusting enamel caries :D . I'm so glad.


I had a dentist who was really keen to do a root canal for what turned out to be, er, sinus trouble.

Managed to eat a full bowl of baked beans without using a knife fork or spoon.

Yes!

I want to win Daniel Tammet's books - ones with his own autograph! :D :D :D - in an online contest. I just entered it - in said contest you had to write what weirdest foreign word you know and I mentioned two (I wrote a funny poem containing those): strup and padalec. Those come from the Slovenian language and are so funny because of the fact that in Polish they mean something entirely else. Strup means a scab in Polish and a poison in Slovenian, while padalec means a blindworm in Polish (I remember how once I made an American online buddy of mine laugh because I told her about this in the context of the last name of Jared Padalecki - "Oh", she said, "he's so cute and doesn't look like a blindworm at all" :D) but in Slovenia it is a word they have for a parachutist.

I wish I could win Daniel Tammet's books - it's a set of his three books.

I have a low-flow toilet that mostly kinda works, but it's not enough water to clear the pipes, so sometimes it doesn't completely flush, no matter how little it has to flush. Today I got sick of it and poured a gallon of water in at the same time I flushed, and I did this several times. It now flushes properly.

Too hot to do anything so stayed indoors with the curtains closed to keep the sun out and played Fallout 4 on my PS4.

I managed to win the harder of my two races at Mosport, which I assumed would be a struggle even to finish in the points. Now the next one is twice as long but with a different set of cars.

I finally cleared the kitchen counters and caught up on dishes after a week of spending all my down time laying in bed. :jester:

I made some rice topped with veggies for lunch and I've changed my avatar twice.

I entered some "The Sims" Youtube giveaway - again - (I started to furnish and decorate the empty shell of a house in this "The Sims" challenge), as well as I won in some other online contest - two of my friends from that Polish contest message board also had gotten sent the link to that contest by me and they also won - ore precisely, they got this toy plane (plus some additional, history-related items) https://www.empik.com/cobi-zestaw-600-k ... 3oFig51uQM. One of said buddies of mine is going to give the plane to his nephews and another one will sell hers, because she's dealing with financial problems. I'm proud of myself, then :)

I've signed most of my paintings for Arts Alive. I'm going to be selling bead necklaces as well.

I asked my mom to inform our cousin that when I finally got my toy plane I won then, I would give it to her (the cousin), so that she could give it in turn to her doctor's young son :) I already once gave her some baby products I had also won, and she gave those in turn to his younger son :)

P. S. I also won a Batman comic book :D I just saw it :)
