What?! There's an Eight IN THE MORNING?!?!

I am awake so early because my orthodontist scheduled an appointment for 10AM today. I figured 10AM was late enough that it would be embarrassing to ask him to move around his stuff for me because I haven't really seen 10AM in weeks (which is only a partial truth. Usually if I wake that early, I roll over and snooze a bit, until a respectable 11AM rolls around, but I still know it's there, on my clock).

I just hope he doesn't ask me if I've made an appointment with the surgeon yet, because the answer is what it has been at my last three visits - "No."

I'm eyeing my knitting warily right now, deciding who gets to come with me to the orthodontist's office. My cross stitch piece is also an option. It's like Sophie's Choice. I can take some knitting on the train, but if it's too complicated, there could be issues. Lace knitting and train rides aren't exactly the best mix. Also, there's residual guilt from when I was supposed to cast on the second blue sock during America's Next...erm...show I don't watch, but I was at WILG with no knitting on my person (*emo tear*).

Also, a book is always another option (I usually take both and decide what to do based on my getting a seat and/or how I feel at the time). I'm getting through my stack o' books more rapidly than I'd like to - mostly because I've never had time to read before, because I was always ever so busy with More Important Things. Now that I'm reading a lot, I feel guilty. I guess I keep asking myself, "Is reading suddenly a More Important Thing? It won't pay the cable bill...so, no." But there's only so much I can do on that front (like apply to three jobs for which I am not remotely qualified a-la this week). I should just stop feeling guilty about things. There, problem solved.

Ok, I need to get going now. I love that I paid half the price for these braces, there are no rubber bands to change, and instead of some "old guy," an incredibly attractive younger man puts his hands in my mouth once a month - but it's about a forty to fifty minute commute from my house, complete with line switching. I guess you can't win 'em all.

I do want to leave you with this perfect recipe (that I have yet to try, but holy wow...I will):

Ziploc Omelette
Crack 2 large eggs into a zip-top plastic bag, or use egg substitute.
Shake to combine.
Add ingredients as desired: Cheeses, onions, green peppers, mushrooms, olives, tomatoes, etc.
Make sure to get the air out of the bag, then zip it up. *
Place the bag into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes.
Open the bag and the omelet will roll out easily.

*- For a brunch, 6-8 omelets can usually cook in a large pot.
