"I Don't Think You Should Drive"she says

So I finally bit the bullett and went for the eye exam today. You people may remember I decided the time I said look at that huge log and (e:paul) pointed out"Mike that is a family of ducks".

Anywho so I went to Buffalo Eye Center and the doctor was like Dr. Bagarozzi or something, Dr. Gulati is the main doctor and he is the new doctor. I really liked him. He seemed very nice and caring. I definitely recommend him.The technician that first did my beginning tests was like "you've never had glasses". I was like no. And she was like , I don' think you should be driving. And was like why? Am I drunk ? It is only like 9 in the morning, and then I realized she meant cuz I can't see. Eh, i've never had a problem. So then in the eye exam with the doctor I got so nervous that I would give the wrong answer like which part was clearer and so afraid of getting the wrong prescriptioin because I did not know how to answer. I think I was shaking. he was very accomodating and made it easy and was liek "don't worry I double check and everything so if you say one time is clearer and it isn't , it isn't going to ruin everything" I kept making him go back and check things again like I oculdn't remember what I thought was clearer. So that is all done and my prescription is for -1.5 in one eye and -1 in the other eye, which seems not to bad compared to my friends. He said I only need it for driving and stuff and hsouldn't wear them all day cuz my near sight is fine.

So then we go on to the optician shop that is in the same place. OMG they had so many pairs of glasses, it was insane. How do I even begin to decide. The guy came to help me but I just said I needed to look around. I was 100% SURE I would pick a pair that would end up being girl glasses so I asked him and he said many are unisex but like generally it is very clear if they are not unisex. So I walk around for at least an hour trying on at least 50 pairs and could not decide. I deicded I needed to bring someone with me. So an hour later me and (e:amanda) head over to Buffalo Eye Center and start again. I treid on like every pair again and we would narrow it down to like 3 and then I would deicde I needed to walk the whole place again and narrow it down to a different three and so on.

Eventually we got it down to the final five and it was so hard becuase they were all similar but a little different. I finally went with the Gucci ones that I liked the most I think. It was funny cuz was like I was like oh they are only $249 as opposed to $149 which was another pair I kinda liked but not as much but that is $100 which is a lot but like in context of looking at so many pairs some that had crystals that cost like $800 it seemed like not that much. Plus it was Gucci so yeah. They really were t hebest ones though me and amanda decided. Then I decided to get the glare free lenses and the extra scratch resistant ones. I didn't get the ones that tint in the sun cuz he said it deosn't work in the car and that is when I mostly need them. So I gues I Wil lprolly have to get sunglass ones at some point too. I don' tknow, maybe I'll get the clips that go over it.

Overall with the eye exam my share was only $180 dollasrs and my insurance paid like $250 or something like that so that seemed like a good deal to me!!!!!!!!! I tihnk i will look smart in glasses, some people don't look good in glasses but I think I kinda do. I think I will like having them. I cna't wait 7-10 days and then I can see again!

It was so crazy when the doctor showed me what it will be like when I wear the glasses, it was like a whole new world!!! YEAH SEEING! I LIKE TO SEE!

Everyone will get to see them soon! I can't wait to debut them! Oh i forgot I also like that on th band around my ear, they have like a red stripe over the top. My whole life I have liked things with red trim or small stripes, like my favoirte jeans for some reason always have red thread on the pocket yarn and stuff, it is veyr starnge, but that makes me like tem even more. The guy who sold them to me seemed a little questioning if they were the right choice but the lady worker came over and said she loved them.

I definelty recommned BUffalo Eye Center, it was realy good and helpful and nice and has a great selection. I went there because my brother knows Maria Galla, the owner. I tink she was there and I said like hello but I didn't sya I know her cuz I wasn't 100% sure it was her, and I didn't know what to say!

Bye Bye Mansion

So I'm leaving the mansion as (e:pmt) are coming back today. I actually will have to come back cuz I don't feel like carrying everything I brought down right now (yes I pack for liek a 2 month vacation when I was here 3 days, and my house is only like 10 minutes away, I can't help it, its the way I be, seriously like a suitcase and some extra bags of clothes and necesities like magazines) By the by there was quite an assortment of magazines in the mansion already , how heavenly, they were quite an array of topics I think they have been left by all the different people who have lived/passed through here. I definetely need to get an apartment soon, it is very nice to have one.

I think I am leaving the place the same way I came to it, except there are coals in the grill cuz what do you do with coal? I have no idea, do I pour it in the garbage? garden? Spekaing of gardens, not so sure it is sitll a "buffalo in bloom" garden , more a "crusty brown in buffalo" garden but i watered yesterday so hopefully it springs right back up to life.

There also must have been like flies that hatched in the ktichen ro something. SEriosly yesterday out of nowhere there all of a sudden were like 50 or more flies, most of them flew out the window when we opened it but there are still some. I took out the plants they seemed to be living on/coming from. THe weird par tis there is seriously no food in the ktichen for them to be eating. LIke i hadn't even used the ktichen cuz i ate out all the time and there was no dishes/nothing in the sink/garbage. Like what are htey all doing there. That is what makes me think they hatched somehwere inside. ANywho most are gone or trapped between the screen and window. I also closed off the ennitre room so they can't get into the rest of the house. HOpefully the problem is basically gone. Alright off to a cookout at my real house. Chadi

Please don't let me...

...drink lots of vodka ever again. I never have hangover no matter how much I drink, like very rarely do I have bad hangovers. I feel like crap today after drinking only lots of vodka last night instead of my usual rum. Maybe cuz we didn't eat after and I wasn't in my own bed attributed to it to but i feel like crap. Me and (e:beast) tried to go to lunch and I had to get out of the car and walk so I didn't throw up. I ate some lunch and now feel a little better but still quite bleeh

My Mommy

My dad is out of town for a few days so tonight me and my mom went out to dinner. We went to the Empire Grill on Hertel. I really like it, it is quite good. I love the calamari po boy sandwich which my mom got but this time I got a chicken,bacon,pesto type sandwich. It was muy delicioso. Then we shopped at Target. We both love clearance more than life itself. She was all I'll show you where the good clearance is, and I was all "i know where it is, I ain't no amateur" but alas she did no one corner of clearance men's items I never knew existed. She is truly a star at what she does. I never really hang out with my mom anymore, i mean i live with her but we never really hang out like we used to. It was pretty fun..my mom is great, i love her!

I hate Eckered/Rite Aid more than ever. Prolly it has been the most stressful ever. I am not a manager/ nor in charge of anything, i don't want to make any decisions/be asked 1 bazillion questions. I want a raise. I want a new job?

On the good side I am mansion sitting for (e:pmt) all week so stop by for a weeklong fiesta.....ok fiesta or really just sitting around watching the R. Kelly trapped in the Closet video over and over waiting for the new episodes to debut.

Development:Elmwood's Makeover

I just read about the new ideas for Elmwood. At first I thought it was so crazy to make an indoor mall but I think it will be realy cool and just want the city needs. I heard they are going to knock down all the houses from like Forest to W. Delevan between Delaware and Richmond and build like an indoor covered but looks outdoor type of retail development. I think it will be really cool. I guess like all these store we don't have in Buffalo want to be part of it cuz it is supposed to be like the cutting edge of retail development ideas. It is gonna be like a whole city but indoors and without houses. I hear they are possibly getting like an H&M and Neiman Marcus and American Apparel and lots of stores we don't have here. I think they are gonna devote they said at least 15% to local buisnesses so like that is cool too so business can stay. This way like the residents can concentrate in other areas and that can be all business. I don't if like some of the historic homes they will keep but I heard the rest they are knocking down. I don't know how set in stone this is, i think it is just in the planning stages, but it sounds really cool.

Attacked by a Chotchkey

I think that is the right word. As anyone who knows me knows I love to collect random crap. So many knick nacks and pattywacks and what not. Like my room is chuck full of things that no longer have display space and all counter tops are covered in figurines and memorabilia and pictures etc....

Well trying to close my dresser drawer the other day which was overstuffed with tshirts and wouldn't close , does one freakin heavy bird figurine wearing a fishing cap and an I love elephants bracelet from the buffalo zoo as a lifepreserver fall and hit me right in the back of the skull. It hurt so bad. I was 100% sure I was gonna have a concussion. Luckily I did not but it really hurts. By the by you must think well at least it was like a really memorable thing to have and so it was worht the pain. Well this particular fiugring I bought at like the odd's and ends type store (RIP Odd's and Ends I will miss you forever) at the Main Place Mall. I bought it cuz i was killing time waitng to meet (e:mk) for lunch and it was only 74 cents which i thought was such a ridiculous cheap price for a bird in a fishing hat figurine. And once I get something in my hands it beocmes a cherished memory forever......... that i can never part with.........even after it tries to kill me

Load My Fries YOU PEACH

So like I love loaded fries. You know it, I know it, my thoroughly clogged arteries know it. I like my fries covered in cheese and bacon and then dipped in ranch or sour cream if there is no ranch to be found. Anywho, at the Kenmor Days I was in line like 20 minutes and then the fireworks started and so I never got my loaded fries so at canalfest I was really excited for them....I ordered the $8 bucket of loaded fries....i was sweating from anticipation for that great been in the sun all day in a small cart run my carnies kinda flavor you can only get at carnivals in North Tonawanda....but what DO I GET? WHAT DO I GET? ...they are covered in bean chili and cheese sauce. Excuse me that sounds like a classic defintion of a chili cheese fry to me, not A LOADED FRY!!!
What a waste of $ 8 and waht a sad , sad disspointing day and then when we were done it was too late at night for anywhere that has loaded fries cuz it was a sunday....why oh why have you forsaken me! SO cuz of this I am currently hating North Tonawanda/City of Tonawanda/Carnies
