Left work early yesterday to go to my appointment with the optometrist. He looked me over and pronounced me good to go on the lasic. The dilation exam, however, played havoc with me the rest of the day. I still don’t think my pupils have retracted to their normal state. I couldn’t read, watch TV, or work on the computer last night because of the aggravation it caused my eyes. Too much concentration caused my head to throb, so last night was a complete waste. No writing, no games, I did struggle through a complete viewing of ‘Smokey and the Bandit’ on AMC. Been a long time since I’ve seen it, it’s still a fun movie.
I finished Bangkok 8 on audio CD, not really sure how I feel about it. The writing was good, but a lot of the stuff I wanted to see come about in the story didn’t happen. It was really more of a character study than a whodunit, not that I was looking for a mystery. Now I’m listening to Edge of Danger by Jack Higgins. In the beginning I didn’t really like this book, I thought it was going to glorify terrorism by showing the pride and honor of the Rashid family. But since it’s now turned to concentrate on Sean Dillion and how he can foil the Rashid’s plan I’m really starting to like it. Halfway through it, only 3 more disks left.
This is going to be one long day. My eyes are already starting to feel sore as I look at the screen.
