My life is over

Adulthood has given me an early Christmas present: a slap in the face in the shape of a filling. Yes, after 18 years of having perfectly healthy teeth, I had to have my first filling today. It sucked balls. There's nothing like having the numb feeling and metallic, dusty taste of failure in your mouth; I have failed that tooth, and now - at 18 - I have a damned filling.

Also, since the craze had calmed down a little, I had decided to see what all the fuss was about a certain book called '50 Shades Of Grey'. Pfft! More like '50 Shades Of WTF'! I'd thought to myself before reading, "How bad can it be?". 123 pages in, I feel traumatized beyond repair and have given the copy back to my mother, murmuring, "I can't even...I can't even...I'll go back to my Steven King novels". The writing is dreadful (I can imagine E.L. James didn't even know what a thesaurus was) and the words were so bland they were boring me to tears even before the more erotic stuff came to burn my eyes out of their sockets. Nope, erotic novels are definitely not for me, especially erotic novels inspired by freakin' Twilight!

The movie shall basically be porn. Enjoy fellas!

Anyway, Merry Christmas to all, and I will hopefully be able to post finished stories by the end of the day for you all seeing as I've failed to meet this first deadline. Writer's Fatigue is setting in again...

Merry Christmas, everyone!
