Back at work.... - cellophane — LiveJournal
the story of an invisible girl
Back at work....

I'm back at work again; the holidays are over. *sigh* Apparently my complexion suffered greatly! *another sigh* Oh well...this picture looked a lot better on my tiny Treo screen. At least the choaker looks good though, and that's what I was really trying to photograph. Heehee, maybe I should have just zoomed in on it alone!

In an effort to stay cheery anyway, I'm wearing two of my christmas presents today! My really cool magnetic necklace is visible here, but my purple lacy shirt is hidden under the jacket. I'm trying to grow a third present on my desk (a paperwhite growing kit (also not pictured)).

I'm also still wearing my glasses. They are driving me crazy by now. Only three more days! Friday I will hopefully have my vision permanently repaired....

Update: There, I made the image smaller. That looks less scary -- yay!

I can understand wanting to eliminate the hassle of having to wear glasses. I don't know what I'd do if I had to. I'd probably lose them all the time.

Still, it's a shame because there's something about glasses that makes a woman appear more thoughtful and mysterious... and very sexy.

Anyway, best of luck with the surgery. I'm sure it'll go well.

Fortunately (?) my eyes are bad enough that losing my glasses is a rareity. It's like if you need a crutch to walk -- if you misplace it, you can't really go anywhere 'til it's found!

The annoying thing will be when we get older and need reading glasses. Those, like sunglasses, I'm sure I'll be constantly losing or breaking, because I'll only need them sometimes.

Once I get used to not NEEDING glasses, it wouldn't surprise me if I got a non-prescription pair just to wear for looks now and then. I do like they way they look sometimes. And since they'll weigh a lot less, and I'll still be able to see beyond the frames, I bet they won't be the hinderance they are now.

Thanks, I sure hope so! (:

hehe, I had the lasik (you may recall) and still need reading glasses. I keep pairs in every room of the house, in the car, in my purse, etc.

They are only $17.99 at Costco for three pairs of decent looking ones. Also found some at Tar-zhey for a buck apiece. So, no biggie losing a pair!

True, they are a LOT cheaper than regular glasses! I am hoping I can last a few years without needing anything... *crossed fingers*

I had dinner with my dad and his 3 sisters awhile back. They all 4 need reading glasses, but only 1 had remembered to bring hers. So they shared, passing the glasses back and forth to look at the the menu and make comments on the items, like those storybook witches with only one eye between them!

LOL! Yep, it's an all-to-common occurence!

Well, as btime mentioned in his journal recently, there are always alternatives.


I think you'd do better with Lasik though.

You know, my first thought on seeing the article was "ewww!"

But then I thought, "Hey those are a lot more practical than most piercings..." Kinda nice to see one that's actually functional.

Not that I think I'd want it myself, but really -- it's kinda cool!

I thought this was coming up soon for ya-- good luck!!

I think I'll be getting my second eye done in another year or so. My first eye is not drying out as bad as it did the last two years-- havnign the hysterectomy must have helped that situation, too! Woo hoo!

After lasik, you'll have to depend on sunglasses to give you the sophisticated glasses look. Something to look forward to!

Oh cool, that's great to hear! Happy for you!

I'm looking forward to having to wear pretend glasses to look sophisticated.. *grin*
