What Made You Feel Good Today

Recommended Posts

Venison in the smoker, jerky, snags, burgers etc.

 

Looking forward to trying the ribs.

Love lamb ribs on the smoker, will be interesting to see if these are even half as good.

Haha nice.

I made a joke to the wife in an Eric Cartman voice, which my 7 year old decided was hilarious. Now I'm stuck reading the all of the BFG's lines in the BFG with an Eric Cartman voice...

got 2 new pairs of glasses yesterday, both titanium frames so nice and light on the bridge of the nose

but the "pièce de résistance" was a free trial of contacts

I'm in love 

a little bit difficult to put in and remove, but I'm sure this will become second nature over time

totally blew my mind that multi-focal contacts would work so well

this will be totally awesome for bike riding, no more getting glasses to fit in my helmet

also excited about being able to buy non prescription sunnies

contacts are great... until they get to the point where you have to take them out and you want to keep them in... and then you have to clean the hell out of them to prevent infections... then you have to get replacement ones far more often than you think is necessary and they cost a decent amount each time... then you fall asleep in them and experience a new level of eyeball uncomfort... etc. :)

I have daily disposables so I don't think it's going to be such an issue

pretty simple to clean with the solution that comes in a squeeze bottle

time will tell

as far as cost goes, I will probably only wear them in the weekend cos my job can be very dusty at times which is no good for contacts

so for my prescription that would be about $250 per year

Had my contacts in for 8 hours today as per instructions given
No issues at all
In fact, it felt so natural that I had to keep reminding myself that they were actually in my eyes
I am totally sold on them
Did have a stupid grin on my face for most of the day

I quite liked them when I tried them (used daily disposables like you BCB).

But I don't know if it was the shape of my eye sockets or angle of eyelashes or what, but I never got the hang of getting them in. Out was fine, but in took me like 20 shots per eye.

Maybe I should try again now that our bathroom isn't a dark, cramped sh!thole anymore. Might make it easier!

my optometrist at the time showed me a pretty good way to get them in (I'd assume this method is pretty universally taught to contact lens purchasers) so I never really had trouble unless the contact fell off my finger on the way up.

hell yes, genetic defects, needed glasses at 15 but hardly used them, didn't get contacts until 18, gave up on contacts around 26 and now just glasses... to be fair, my eyesight isn't terrible, it's just that I prefer to have complete clarity in almost all situations and it's frustrating to get minor headaches from trying to focus too hard through the defect.

Yeah my eyes aren't shocking. I got them at 25 and haven't worsened since.

Optometrist said for some reason they are seeing a high rate of males of Caucasian background having a sudden drop in eyesight at 25, but then staying stable at that level until usual degenerative eyesight decline happens later in life. Not females and not other ethnic backgrounds, but they don't know why.
