LASIK & various other things  
So, I think that having LASIK will be A Good Thing (tm). Still wondering what the increase in accuracy between the regular NIDEK laser and the VISX laser with Eye Tracker is, but I guess it's a moot point as they will only be using the VISX laser the week I am scheduled. And I ended up getting almost $500 off the total price when all was said and done - referrals are nice *smile* Flexible Spending Plans through work are sweet. I think that the end of February will not come soon enough. I still have to find someone to drive me, tho. I should try to find someone with my prescription to give my unopened contact lenses to as well.


Still waiting to hear from Rusty and hoping they took his final counteroffer on the house is Boulder. Having a place to live would be a good thing, as would being back in Boulder.

*fingers crossed*


I've heard two rather... amusing(?) things lately.

First, that I don't have enough 'drama' in my life, so that makes me boring and uninteresting and therefore unworthy. *snort* How little do they know...

I still think that not being one of those 'blabs about every problem and issue to every single person she knows' and 'everything is about me' drama queen people is a good thing. I have few 'me' moments, and they are generally ignored at any rate, so why bother? But I guess I'd have more friends if I were the other way? How bizarre.

Second, that I don't make a good friend because I don't always push wanting to do things and call and chat and gossip alla the time and so forth. And that me not making all of the efforts anymore is 'the fault' for why so few bother with me anymore. Well yanno what? I do call/write/whatever occasionally. I do tell people I'm interested in doing things. I even asked 2 or 3 people if they wanted to go see Chicago this weekend. No one had time.

If people don't have time for me I don't have time for them.

visx procedure. wow, that seems like a big step! i'll have to read up on it,
never heard about it. it'd be nice someday to not need glasses for sports
and what not. my largest issue is what happens way down the road, and night
vision! very important to me.

Lasik sounds good. My wife is thinking about it; since she can't wear contacts, she always sees the world through the distorted view of her glasses. Let us know what kind of a difference it is...

As to people not having time..... Yep, you're right. I've been re-reading my notes and books on CGT (combinational game theory) as of late; the best tack seems to be always start out nice, then play tit-for-tat.
