This is the Most Exciting Post You Will Read Today!

I'm starting to get a bit nervous about tomorrow's laser* eye surgery. Not full-out "I don't know if I can/should go through with it" nervous, but nervous all the same. To take my mind off that, I have been thinking about what I need to get ready just in case I can't/don't want to see for a while (i.e. if my eyes are too sensitive and I would prefer to keep them closed or in the dark).

-I should clean my apartment since the Boy will be here helping me and cleaning, while not my favorite activity, is just obsessive enough to get my mind off the slight nervousness.
-I should cast on for a simple knitting project to work on while I can't/shouldn't/don't want to do anything too strenuous on the eyes. I was thinking a plain sock, but then I realized that I should work on something at a bigger gauge** so that there would be less chance of dropped stitches.
-I should get some groceries so there's something to eat on the weekend

*whenever I say or hear the word "laser" I automatically then hear the Austin Power's "laaaaaaayzer" pronunciation and i nearly laugh out loud
**without fail, anytime I write/type the word gauge I have to re-do it b/c I've written/typed it "guage"


(This is exciting huh? All thanks to NaBloPoMo!)


The following is from an MSN conversation with a friend at work the other day. I saved it because at the time it seemed blog-worthy. Aaaaaaaaaaand, now you get to read it:

you know how sometimes while you're at work you end up reading something*** or doing something on line that's totally not work related just for a little break and before you know it, the sureptitious online activity is making you laugh so hard it's really obvious so you have to supress the laugh and it makes you cry a little and then you start to make that wierd breathing thing that could be laughing or crying but no one would know the difference because you're silently shaking and breathing funny and tears are coming out of your eyes...?

***for the record, I was reading this at The Bloggess when the above occured

I finished the 1st Monkey sock Tuesday evening and started the 2nd right away (yay me!). I was going to take inspiration from Heather and work on a sock stash for emergency Christmas Gifts, but I've only gotten 1.24 socks done so I'm not sure how well that will work out...

****My only defense for this is that it's early/I haven't had coffee. Sorry.


  1. I had the laser eye surgery last year and it's totally freaky at the time but SO, SO worth it. I wish I'd done it 10 years ago.

    Also, bring a blanket to hide under on the ride home because you are going to be crazy sensitive to light for a few hours.

  2. Oh me too with the guage (so nice to type that deliberately) thing.

  3. Good luck tomorrow. I wish I had the nerve to even investigte lazer surgery. So the blog you linked...laughed so hard I cried - wiping tears now. Bookmarked it for futher chuckles.

  4. I think sock stash works best when it's plain socks. It's easier to crank out plain jane socks than the patterned ones (for me, anyways).


Hi! I'm so glad you stopped by. I'd love to hear from you.
