Follow through

Behold the $3 ipad holder. Actually I paid another $8 for an exacto knife and some extra blades but as I see it I'm still ahead $89. Mr. Sophanne said something about liquid resin for the insides. I don't really know what he's talking about. I'm just impressed that I did something I said I was going to do.

One of the books I found at the library was called"Born to Kvetch by Michael Wex. Yiddish is such a mishmash of puns in multiple languages, secrets and opposite meanings. There are curses and my favorite so far has been "may your teeth all fall out- except for one that you may get a toothache. It would seem that curses were on the same level as the more recent "yo mama is..." genre. I'll read as much as interests me until it's due back at the library.

Speaking of teeth- the repaired chipped tooth is once again in disrepair. yet another trip to the dentist on Monday. I'm starting to wonder if I have some sort of chemical reaction with whatever epoxy they use to hold it in place. Maybe my chemistry breaks down what would normally stick things together. Maybe that is my superpower. Maybe the dentist should look into some liquid resin.

1. What an amazingly awesomely cool idea!

2. Yiddish curses are the best.

3. I, too, have a tooth that doesn't seem to want to stay repaired. I must have the same anti-glue superpower.

That is a really a cool idea. I just got a Nook myself and may have to try this idea out before I spend 40.00 on a cover!

Oh I don't know, maybe it's time for a new dentist?

What a great idea...very creative of you! I have a daughter with a similar dental situation...she waiting until she has her baby to go back to get her crown repaired...for the 3rd time!

That is a truly cool holder!

Old world insults are the best.

I second the second opinion on the dentist.
