My other glasses finally arrived

Well, I have no idea when they got to town – I called the optometrist on Friday and they said that my glasses were ready to pick up. I picked them up today.

Got home, and both Amy and I came to the conclusion that they’re crap compared to the glasses I got from Optical4Less in Hong Kong.

Judge for yourself: Pictures of me wearing all three pair.

Socks and Underwear

This is something I’ve been theorizing on for quite a while.

When you’re a kid, you want TOYS for Christmas or your birthday. The very last thing you want as a gift is socks and underwear. However, you always manage to get a package of such from Grandma or another family member.

The older you get, the less you want toys, and the more you *want* practical gifts like socks and underwear.

My mother asked me what I wanted for my birthday coming up in November.

I told her “Socks and underwear.”

Nerd, Geek, or Dork?

Although their math is a bit off…

Tri-Lamb Material
52 % Nerd, 21% Geek, 52% Dork
For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Dork, earning you the coveted title of: Tri-Lamb Material.

The classic, “80’s” nerd, you are what most people think of when they think “nerd,” largely due to 80’s movies like Revenge of the Nerds and TV shows like Head of the Class. You’re exceptionally bright and smart, and partly because of that have never quite fit in with your peers or social groups. Perhaps you’ve realized, or will someday, that it is possible to retain all of the things that you like about being brilliant and still make peace with the social cliques around you. Or maybe you won’t–it’s really not necessary. As the brothers of Lambda Lambda Lambda discovered, you’re fine just the way you are and can take pride in that. I mean, who wants to be like Ogre, right!?

An Uneventful Weekend

On Saturday, I got an eye exam, ordered the cheap pair of glasses that my insurance pays for, then went home and ordered two more pair online (for less than the insurance-subsidized ones cost me) from Optical4Less. Both places (the local eye doctor and O4L) say “two weeks turnaround time” – we’ll see which ones get here first.

I spent most of Sunday in bed with a migraine, which wasn’t fun.
