An Invitation to De-Lurk

by Roo on January 13, 2014

in miscellany

I always like when I get comments that say, “Hey, I’ve been reading here for years, but this is my first time saying hi. Hi.” Is that you? Are you a quiet reader? Today, I extend to you an invitation to de-lurk. Sup. :)

de-lurking

Sup to all the regular commenters or not so regular commenters, too. Here are some questions that all of you are welcome to answer. :)

1) Where are you located?
2) What do you do for a living?
3) Boy Meets World or Full House?
4) What’s one goal you have for 2014?
5) Name one thing within arm’s distance away from you right now.

*Bonus points: If you have a blog or website or Etsy shop or whatever, please leave the link in the comment section! Sometimes my site reads links as spam, so if your comment doesn’t show up right away, it simply means I just have to approve it.

Thanks for reading and thanks for saying hi! :)

So…clove-infused vodka. It sounds like an infinitely cooler story than it is. (This does not count as medical advice. I’m not a medical professional).

I’m probably the only 30 year old who still has all her wisdom teeth, and because of that, a couple times every year, my gums get inflamed. The clove-infused vodka is my solution to make them feel allllll better. Clove is in all kinds of things to help with tooth pain and clove oil can be purchased at health food stores. Out here, it runs about $10/ounce. The active ingredients are cloves and olive oil (or similar oil blend), and, as the inactive ingredient, 45-55% alcohol. I already have cloves (whole ones from the spice aisle) and some vodka (Smirnoff No. 57. The blue 100-proof label), so I add the two together. Crush up some cloves, put them in the dropper bottle, pour on the vodka. Shake it, don’t stir it (like the James Bond of your choice is waiting for you). If the cloves are relatively fresh and haven’t been sitting on the spice rack for years, the oils in them will release fairly quickly into the vodka and voila! A few drops on the offending area and relief. Olive oil or canola or whatnot can also be infused with cloves, but it tends to take longer (a week or so from what I remember) and I needed relief faster than that.

Price comparison…a 375mL bottle, or just over 12 ounces, of 100-proof Smirnoff is around $10. I have no idea what whole cloves cost since I rarely buy them, but the math works out to be much cheaper than buying the clove oil from the store. And speaking, briefly of James Bond, you could probably use it to experiment with martinis. I haven’t tried it, but, off the top of my head, if one enjoyed gingerbread flavored adult beverages, a clove-infused vodka could be probably worked into the mix with success.

The ‘easier’ option, I guess, would be to visit an oral surgeon to discuss removing the wisdom teeth, but I haven’t found one yet willing to discuss if my teeth will shift causing the years of orthodontia I had as a preteen to be all for not. The ones I have visited have all said that if any of them get ‘bad’ or if a dentist thinks they will cause damage to the surrounding molars, then I should have them removed, until then, I’m to carry on until I get tired of dealing with them.

I live in the suburbs of New Haven, CT. I make my living as a Librarian/Manager at the most wonderful library in the world. I watched Full House a good deal more than Boy Meets World, but I think I liked Boy Meets World a lot more. I’d like to climb a 5.11 (a pretty hard level for a rock climber who’s not a gym rat) and run a 5k in under 30 minutes. I have a birds nest that used to belong to a marsh wren on the corner of my desk, waiting for me to turn it into a “please touch” display for our nature corner.

2) Scientist. Only sometimes mad.
3) Tough one. I loved both, but if I had to pick, it’d be Full House because I could stare at Uncle Jesse all day long.
4) Give birth to a happy, healthy baby boy (and protect him from his sister’s overzealous sticker usage)
5) Too many papers on a too-small desk in a too-cramped cubicle with 3 other people. Shouldn’t a college degree at least have earned me my own cube?!

Hey yo! I’ve only commented once. Let the de-lurking commence! I really enjoy reading you Roo, especially the mix of funny, fab late 80′s jokes, and the serious stuff. I’m not a mom (or married yet) but I still enjoy reading about kid stuff!
1) I’m in Tampa, FL
2) I work in a real estate/mortgage office to pay the bills but I would like to jump off and make my photography business full time by the end of the year (AH!!) Check it out everyone if you’d like: http://www.facebook.com/SecondhandExposure
3) Full House definitely
4) Quit my job and do photography to support myself
5) bowl with salsa & chip remnants… off to get more…

Thanks Roo!

Um…is this awkward that I’m doing it this late? See, I have this thing where I like to not be up-to-date on my favorite blogs so that if I have a slow day at work I can binge-read a lot of them. And it’s lovely. Although I do follow you on fb/ig, so I know what’s going on. sorta. you know..because we’re still strangers. One time I shared a story with a co-worker and started it with “My friend just posted this picture…” and then I had to stop myself and awkwardly admit that we aren’t really friends.
ANYWAY,
1)Jackson, MS. But I’m from the suburbs of Philly (what up, Ben Franklin)
2) Physician Assistant (more commonly known as a PA)
3) Full House when I was younger, then I matured into Boy Meets World. Again…shout out to Philly.
4) Goal for 2014…I don’t really have one. I’ve never really been a goal-oriented person (other than when it came to school)
5) flowers from my Hubs (It’s V-day)

Hello! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d
ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?

My website goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit
from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me
an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
Great blog by the way!
