Better Ways to Spend Days Off

Smoking Cuban cigars in Canada (not to mention the Cornish Pasties, English chocolate and....TWIGLETS!!!!)

Indulging in chocolate pedicures (pretty purple toenails "Now or Never", lovely soft skin, and fabulous smelling like a chocolate all day long)

Watching March of the Penguins (very cute, sad in parts, amazing what they go through)

Checking email (boo) and finding boss is moving on (wooohooo)

Coming back to work and finding new boss is going to sponsor green card (although I'm still waiting to see this in writing!) and cute guy has bought in another DVD for me

I guess life has it's moments.....

Bad Way to Spend a Day Off!

Eye exam.

Sounds OK doesn't it?

Would have been if he hadn't told me he had to dilate my pupils. Getting the drops in wasn't too bad but the after-effects.......YUK. Couldn't focus, thought I was gonna be sick I felt so wobbly. Oh, it'll wear off in about half an hour or so. FOUR HOURS!!!!!!!!! That's how long it took before I could remove my sunglasses (light hurts) and actually read anything. Damn waste of a day, that's all I can say.

Good news: my prescription has hardly changed (I'm still as blind as a bat) although my left eye astigmatism has changed slightly so that the current lens is now a little too strong for it. Could be contributing to the headaches, I guess. Bad news: I have to have this done again in two years there's something to look forward to!

Did pick out some new frames but, in my bleary-eyed, unable to focus state, it remains to be seen if they'll be ok. I enlisted the help of some other people in the shop (who were very nice about it) fingers crossed. Will take about two weeks "cos of all the extras" (wooohooo.....except that only means plastic lens, Transitions so they'll go dark in the sun and anti-reflective coating....hardly what I would call "extras"). Full price was about $500 but luckily the insurance picked up about $300 of that. Still hurts though.

Morale of the story: if you get your pupils dilated, leave your credit cards at home!

More about the MotM

Man of the moment, in case you didn't realise.

Still very confused about what's going on with him. I do know he's not seeing anyone (good) but he doesn't seem to the kind that will make a move and I'm still not sure I'm ready to pounce....although I'm about two seconds away from embarassing myself totally. He claims to be pretty observant (he caught me on one of my "personality flaws" the other morning and was spot on....something noone else has ever noticed or had the guts to mention) surely he must realise this????? I had a moment of weakness and ended up telling him something that noone else at work knows....or I would want to know. So there's part of me that trusts him and part of me that still thinks this is a really bad idea and can only end in tears. Although, if it did at least I'd know one way or the other. I also think I'm a little too liberal for him...that I don't think he could handle (son of an ex-minister type). Ho hum. What to do? What to do? I need to find someone that can ask him but, if I did that, then they'd know as well and it would be doubly humiliating.........I HATE THIS!!!!!!!!!

So....anyway....we had a "meeting" last night....5 of us, in a bar, dinner, drinks (boss agreed to pay). It was an official meeting and we did actually get some work done. Then we got back on the whiskey tasting. Kept smiling at me and I was trying to work out what he was thinking. Is it me or the alcohol? Give me a clue. Failed totally to decipher it all. Going home time came. Of the 5 of us, one lives in the south so he clearly wasn't up for offering lifts to anyone. MotM and another guy take public transportation into work and I knew the last bus had left....but didn't want to end up giving them both rides home. Luckily the other woman there offered to take the other guy home (are you following this). So she offered, he accepted. They left.

Hmmmmm. So is he getting the train home? He didn't ask to go back with the other two (although they're close to him). Then he asked me if I was going to another party (just so happened there was another work do happening that evening). Decided it was too late and I didn't fancy going over there. I'm going home, you want a lift? Yes. Oh. I guess that's a good thing? We left.

Nothing happened but I did wake up about 4am thinking about it all. Tossed and turned for two and a half hours and then got up for work. Spent 45 minutes talking to him when I got in (wasn't planned, just happened). And then he left to fly out to the West Coast for some family wedding or something. So now I won't see him until Thursday and I'm very frustrated!!!!!

Office Space

Finally got to see the movie that, it seems, everyone at work but me is word-perfect on. After the build-up I have to say I was doubtful that it would live up to anything but, actually, it wasn't bad. Went with a couple of guys from work and had a very good evening. I'm educating one on the joys of whiskey....this has two benefits....(1) I get to drink whiskey and (2) I get to take him home!!! ;-) Just summoning enough courage to pounce :-D Rob tells me I should just go for it but I don't know about that. It would be OK if I didn't then have to face him at work the following day or he reciprocated (I think he might but I'm not 100% sure). So big dilemma really.
