Well - went and did it yesterday. I'm now the proud owner of a pair of bi(cycle)focals.

Really strange having this funny line to have to look over. Have to get used to not taking my glasses off to read now, too. Still have to take them off for computer work as there is no intermediate focus. Distance or reading, but nothing in between. I can live with that. At least I don't have to fight with those godawful "progressive" lenses. I could not use them as I look out of the corner of my eye at my side mirrors when I drive and cannot handle the progressive lens' peripheral "blind spots". Hmm - with bifocals, does that mean I'm six-eyes instead of four-eyes?

Later y'all - time for dinner and then As Time Goes By comes on.

Side Note: That reminds me - I saw a really cute movie earlier today with Judy Dench called The Last of the Blonde Bombshells. Really good show.

2nd Side Note: I can't believe they've re-done Tuck Everlasting.

Thank you, Shadesong. Whippersnapper that she is, young Shadesong has finally shamed me into trying this Live Journal thing ... but only after constant reassurances. She's such a charmer.

So here I sit on a bright sunny Autumn morning. I've got the VCR running in the background as Annorien watches the shows she missed - Buffy, the Vampire Slayer and Enterprise. Tomorrow I'm going to have to reset the VCR to catch all our shows as I will be at classes all week - Angel, Everwood, Buffy, Smallville, Enterprise, Firefly, and John Doe. I'm ready for Birds of Prey to start - the premise is intriguing and I hope they do as good a job with it as they have with Smallville, i.e. minimal gee-whiz factor and more character and story building.

The time has finally arrived to change eyeglasses. Today's schedule calls for a visit to the ophthalmologist and new prescription glasses. After putting it off for over a year, it's bi-focal time I guess. Constantly having to take my glasses off to read, then put them back on to 'see', then take them back off again to read, is getting ridiculous. Can't wear contacts because my eyes are too sensitive to having anything in them. So - time to 'baby' my eyes once again. Hate it as I do, it's so much nicer seeing individual leaves on trees than an indistinguishable green mass.

Dinnie sits on my terminal screen admonishing me that with age comes wisdom ... and stronger glasses.

Later, y'all.
