looking for a few good ideas

  amongst the irregular verbiage


My spectacles, my white lab coat, my coffee, thermos, and my notes
I pat my pocket, I got the key, to the secrets of the observatory

We went for our biennial eye test last week. We should be going each year, supposedly, but the optometrist we liked so much has left town, selling her practice to someone else and we really have no idea if we were going to feel the same way about the new guy. So we put it off for a while. But now it's done. I've been told I could do with glasses for reading. This doesn't surprise me, I've been getting tired easily after working on the computer or reading for any length of time. It's not that I can't read or can't focus, it's just that it's tiring. Apparently it's a myth that switching to using glasses makes your vision deteriorate faster, so I'm ok with the idea that I'll use them when I feel like it, otherwise not. Perhaps I'll end up wearing them all the time for reading, working, etc. Perhaps not. We'll see how it goes.

The most important thing is ensuring that I still look cool, of course.
