[Wait, I felt something! |chipperchipper]

My new glasses arrived today, which makes me very happy. As it doubtless should, given that this is my first pairs of glasses I've had in over a decade, thanks to the storied history of my eyes.

One pair for reading, one pair for distance, and both have prisms to deal with the misalignment of my left eye due to the retinal detachment. This of course means my brain's having conniptions because it just finished writing software to accommodate that, and here I come with corrective lenses that will force a rewrite. Ah well. Also, the prism solution isn't perfect, and it doesn't deal with the distortion.

Anyway, I was so happy as a result of this delivery that I sat down and read a book. Because that's what it's all about.

That, and of course the hokey-pokey.

You were gone quite a while.

Not that I spend much time here these days either, but your health issues were kind of frightening. Glad to hear you can now read a book, a real book.

Sorry to hear you had to move though. Under the best of circumstances that is stressful.
