Friday went right by when I wasn't even looking
I did have an extremely cool story to share with you, this first day on which you are officially allowed to mention the word "Christmas" without getting the death glare from me, which I heard on As It Happens last night, but before I knew it, Friday was over. So I'll tell you all about it tomorrow.
I did manage to spend waaaaay too much money at the optometrist's today. Eva needed her prescription changed. And that's fair, I accept that. But apparently I have one eye that has become extremely near-sighted, while the other eye has become extremely far-sighted. I'm told that this is why my eyes have been so sore and red and irritated recently.
"Your depth perception is garbage; I don't know how you drive" were the comforting words from Mr. Bedside Manner, just before he told me that my reading glasses were no longer sufficient and that now I need "computer glasses". Now I've never heard of computer glasses, but they are progressives, or whatever they call bifocals these days, and they're only good for seeing things up to 10 feet away. But I'm told they are what you need if you spend much time on the computer.
Oh yes, and because these new lenses need to be a certain depth to accomodate the bifocal thingy, I'm told my old reading glasses frames are not deep enough, so I needed new frames too.
Did I just get scammed? Because I just spent a shitload of money on these.
But they are pretty cool looking.
And I hope I'm not too late with my Friday playlist, but I ran all the way over here with it so, joining in with all the other cool kids, here are the tunes that the laptop spit out today:
1. I will never see the sun - Great Lake Swimmers
2. Prodigal son - Rolling Stones
3. 16 military wives - the Decemberists
4. Papercutz - K-Os
5. Kissability - Sonic Youth
6. I wanted everything - the Ramones
7. Well that was easy - Franz Ferdinand
8. 40' - Franz Ferdinand
9. Furry sings the blues - Joni Mitchell
10. Reverence - the Jesus and Mary Chain
Two Franz songs in a row - that's freaky. But starting off with Great Lake Swimmers, ahhh! Tony Dekker has a voice that will bring you to tears.
