Looking not so quite beaten up

My lip has Juuuuust about returned to normal. I keep telling everyone though that there is no way in hell I am going out when we get home. It's going to be at least a month before I show my face anywhere other then the barracks and work LOL. Vanity prohibits it hehehe. Yes MOTHER, I am admiting to my vainess. But come on now, you pay a god bunch for perfect teeth and then one of them goes and gets knocked out, I think I am just slightly entitled to it ROFL:-D After all, as I like to say, I may not be the hottest thing on the planet, but I do prize my once very toothy grin:-D
Anyway, Margaret, I didn't get the Ryan Seacrest joke. Of course that could be because I have never seen American Idol LOL:-D Something about the whole not doing the cable/TV thing.
Yes, another boring day in Iraq, and yes it is a good thing.
7 and a wakeup and hasta manana Iraq, See you next year.

Oops!! AFN here says you guys see what we see. Anyway, Ryan closes his shows with...

"...Ryan Seacrest, OUT!..."

You can always get some Billy Bob costume teeth, complete with rotten and worm holed teeth.

Hi Lizzie - I have been trying to post a comment for a week but it wouldn't go through. I think I got here via Sean. I just wanted to let you know you have another fan.

Be safe!

A chiclet Garrison? Now that's worhty of a ROFL! Lizzie, just be sure you don't accidentally pick up a green one instead of a white one...lol.

I hope you are doing better and I'm very glad you are safe. Sorry I haven't written sooner. Not dealing with this too well I guess. Hits awfully close to home. Anyway, best wishes for a holiday season and a speedy recovery!!

You don't really know me but I was with the Reserve unit that was assigned to your unit, and I chatted with you a few times on AKO. I'm very sorry to hear you were injured. Since we demobbed I have not known what was going on with people in your unit, but I wish you a speedy recovery.

Sgt Lizzie,

Congrats! You're just about outta there. Back when I was in, I used to say "7 days and a hangover". I suppose that's not too possible for you though. I found your site through Veterans for Common Sense. Wanted to let you know I'll be linking to ya! Take care and be safe this last week!

The great thing about teeth is that they can be replaced, you on the other hand can not be. So stick the chiclet in - wrap your head with some gauze (Alfalfa and Spanky flashbacks) and don't try to whistle for a cab or you'll end up with a very wet face. I thought puffy lips were IN this season. Oh well. You don't have to worry about not seeing American Idol - cause you guys are the ONLY idols I wish for my children to emulate. Keep your chin up and your teeth safe.

Wow, okay I'm in tears at 8:00 am. I was linked to your website through Margaret and I have to say thanks! Thanks for doing what you do over there and for keeping your spirits up while doing it! You are a hero and thank God you will be home soon. I will definitely be checking in with you.
