cherry colored glasses

i am wearing my glasses for the first day at work!

i have been wearing them for an hour and a half with no noticeable side effects. i do get this weird strobe effect when i move my head down to look at my keyboard instead of at my monitor and vice-versa.

they feel really dirty. i dunno; i think glasses are gonne gimme an OCD. yipes. i can just see all the dirt all over them and the icky dead skin and oil accumulating. stupid combination skin.

i also got new shoes yesterday; i got a pair of josef siebels. they are like dress shoes but really comfy, the front of them is all made out of like lycra stretchy stuff and the rest of them is leather and they have really absorbent soles. i like these shoes.

shoe shoe shoe shoe.

went to my parents again. my mom and i are trying to create the cogent argument for me not having a wedding, which is the enormous difference in the amount of people that we would have to invite. counting just our first cousins and our parents' first cousins, my total came to 218 and mikey's came to 5. then my mom realized she had completely forgotten to count my father's first cousins. so that is probably closer to 280 on my side. that's right. that's not counting godparents, close friends, distant relatives who i happen to like. nope, it's 218 first cousins. that's not even getting into how offended everyone would be if i didn't copy all the wedding traditions. i *couldn't* have wedding cookies because mikey's dad is deathly allergic to egg (wedding cookies are a very specific list of recipes for cookies that are made and brought to every family wedding by a list of cousins) and i am sure as hell not having an RC church wedding. yipes.

okay, more random chatter later. back to work now.

I have been like that about my glasses since I have worn glasses. (I've had them since I was 10 and I'm 24 now...) Speaking of glasses, I wonder when I'm gonna get my new ones. The doctor said that this new prescription should fix the dizziness thing when I'm reading. I sure do hope so. I hope that I won't look as nerdy in these new ones as I think I will...

Oi! I couldn't imagine having to plan a wedding @_@ so much stress and work and money! If I ever get hitched I'll do what my parents did...I'll drag a couple witnesses over to the city hall and just sign the lisence, then have a little party afterwords at my house.Oi!

that's exactly the idea; i'm trying to avoid having a wedding at all costs, even though it could get me disowned from those 218 guests i mention above. not having a wedding is unacceptable in my mother's family, but my mother's wedding was such a travesty that she is perfectly happy with the idea of me not having one. there are so many family traditions which you are expected to follow that you can't really do anything you would want to, and i'm sort of screwed since mikey is jewish and there are certain ones we couldn't follow even if we wanted to. however mikey isthe only son of two only children (he has a sister) and everyone in his family really-really wants a wedding but they can't really grasp that a wedding that we would have to have in orderto sate my family isn't the sort of wedding they would like. they have a very small family and would expect to have a nice party with a lot of friends. what we're thinking of doing is having a very very small wedding with his grandparents in florida since they would be pleased as punch and we can explain that to my family, that we had to do it in florida to be with mikey's grandparents (who aren't very mobile, anyway).

the nice thing about having a teeny wedding is i can spend a load of money on really nice things for the wedding. if there are no guests we can have a really expensive dinner, and i can buy a beautiful dress that isn't one of those flaky white wedding dresses (ie something i can wear again!) and nice flowers and nice rings and such.
