This morning I went to see my new doctor for the first time. I didn't love him the way I loved my old doctor, but he was funny, and I like funny a whole lot. Afterward I went and finally fucking picked out a new pair of eyeglasses -- yaay! It sure did take me long enough to make a decision, but then again, I had to wait for insurance paperwork to come through anyway. At any rate, thanks to said insurance I probably won't have my new glasses until the new year (the insurance requires that the glasses be made in their lab, which means they have to be shipped out, which means it will take forever), but hey -- for the first time in five years I should be able to see clearly, so in the end, this is a very good thing.

Was that whole paragraph just one long sentence? Mighta been.

At any rate, talking with the eyeglass guy about when my glasses would be ready made me realize something: on January 3rd, I'll have been at The Co-op for one full year. Wow. Now maybe this doesn't sound like much, but considering the fact that my longest job (at Facets, in Chicago) lasted for exactly two years, and also considering the fact that I've seen more than twenty people come and go in the time that I've been at The Co-op (hello, momacress ...), well, I'm pretty pleased with myself. And celebrating with a new pair of glasses paid for (in part) by my beautiful new vision insurance sounds like a pretty good way to go.

Oh, and my new eyeglasses? They do tricks. No, seriously.

New glasses rock.

Happy almost-anniversary! There are worse places to spend a year.

Many. And if The Co-op wasn't a good place to be, I wouldn't still be there.

Being able to see is a good thing. Congrats.

Oh yeah, I counted three sentences.

Peace Chica!

Yea, I can't wait. I mean, it's not that I can't see now, but I definitely can't see clearly.

My glasses do tricks too! Next time I'm in, we'll have to put on a show!

Also, I was at the store I worked at in Maryland for almost 2 years. I was at the co-op for waaaaay longer than I thought I'd be. Seriously, I thought I'd be there for a few weeks while I sorted some job stuff out. Three months later....

Well, it will have to wait until January ... until then, I'll still be wearing the glasses that n0thingman helped me pick out back in the year 2000. Not that I dislilke these glasses, mind you ... just that I dislike the fact the the world has become blurrier and blurrier.
