So excited for a Rom Com club! I haven't watched Notting Hill in ages.
I don't know if there would be enough for a series, but I feel like I've read several stories about young folks whose summers revolved, in part, around library adventures. I feel like this could be something.
@Mistress Sparrow As someone in her late 20s who only just read The Giver in the last year or two, I can attest it totally holds up. Also would like to second the Eleanor and Park love.
On Teeth Dreams
I've definitely had teeth falling out dreams. The most recent one featured a tooth decaying and turning black, and I was trying to keep it from falling out before I could get to the dentist, but it fell out. Those dreams are so so unsettling, especially because I have lost the genetic teeth lottery, so I know my dental future is nothing but pain and sadness.
Did you seriously just describe Nunsense as unfortunate? I believe that opinion is the most unfortunate of all.
Waiting for Guffman reference=greatest moment of my day
On Word Search
I loved this, too!!!!!!
It also reminded me of The Phantom Tollbooth a bit. Anyone else?
At first, I thought it said, "dental cancer" and I was consumed with fear.
I really have nothing to say except that I am deeply saddened by his passing. He was the kind of actor who made me want to see a movie I otherwise would never give a second glance. Some of those movies were enjoyable and some were not, but his scenes were always worth the watch.
I hope this isn't considered threadjacking/insensitive, but I really want to jump on the dismissive doctors bit. My issue is very minor in comparison to this story, but here it is. Several years ago, I started experiencing intense jaw pain completely out of the blue. I go to my dentist who refers me to a specialist to see if it's TMJ. The guy comes in (I'm sure there were xrays or something like that, but all I remember is him walking in) and asks me about my life. I mention I'm in grad school and he just shuts me down saying I'm stressed about school and that's it. My particular program was mind-numbingly easy and I was not stressed AT ALL about it. I left the appointment in tears because he was so dismissive of my pain and the anxiety I was going through regarding the pain and the fact that I was telling him that school was not the stress-factor here.
tl;dr: there are way to many doctors out there who want to diagnose you so quickly that they have no interest in really listening to you.
