3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . . CONTACT

Current mood: definitely in the mood

I want to hold you so hear me out
I want to show you what loves all about
Darlin tonight
Now Ive got you in my sights

With these hungry eyes
One look at you and I cant disguise
Ive got hungry eyes
I feel the magic between you and I
~ "Hungry Eyes" by Eric Carmen

This morning, on my way to Physical Therapy (PT), my right contact popped out of my eye. I searched for it. I looked everywhere around the car seat, on the floor, and even down my shirt. There was no contact. Somewhere, between my eye and the floor, it vaporized – or was sent through the time/space continuum to a different dimension. All I know is that yesterday, my left contact was stuck behind my eye lid – and today, my right one is gone.

I did put a new Left Contact in this morning – so at least I can see out of one eye; the bad eye. I am just having some issues with seeing the computer monitor clearly or reading anything close-up. Coincidentally, Mi Madre, a photo client, and I had an in depth convo about contacts on Tuesday. If my life story were a book, that moment would be considered "foreshadowing". Foreshadowing is a genius literary device. Without it, readers would never be able to "guess the mystery" or "anticipate the future" for a character in a novel. Where would be the fun in that?

Speaking of fun – have you ever visited www.sugardaddies.com? Before you start making fun – I have NOT visited it – BUT – it is constantly being advertised on MySpace and I must admit I am intrigued by the advertisement claim that the "gorgeous and wealthy men" have been "VERIFIED! What does that even mean? I mean, the guys that are pictured are good looking. And based on their Net Worth claims – it is possible that I would be able to not stress quite so much about money. That being said – what part has been verified? The money or the looks? And why so much emphasis on money and looks? Truly – why isn't there a dating site called www.greatpersonality.com? Wouldn't that bring about a more rewarding dating experience?

Personally, I would visit a site where they feature: www.funny_as_hell-looks_average.com. Or www.empty_bank_account_full _kitchen_and_knows_how_to_use_it.com. I should date a pastry chef. I think I could spend a lifetime with someone who can produce tasty baked goods on a whim. Gosh, I am getting all flushed just thinking about it! Must change subject --

I drove my brand new car again today. I still love it. I think it may still love me as well – though I did drive it in the rain this morning. My new windshield wipers are the "ult" (aka. The Ultimate; Really Cool; etc). They go in different directions so water is swept off the windshield from the center, instead of smeared all over the window.

Work is still crazy busy – but beginning Friday – I get a pseudo two-week vacation, to which I am looking forward. I will spend a week in Texas (3 days of which, I will work) and then I am off to San Diego for another week (3 days of which I will be working). Still, Texas and SoCal – cannot go wrong there.

I wish I had more thrilling news – but really, besides the fact that Elizabeth hates the new car – well, actually, she hates wearing a harness that tethers her to the seatbelt; but she blames the car, I think – I really don't have a lot of updates. BUT – if you want a postcard from my vacation, make sure you let me know and verify that I have your address!

PERSONAL NOTE: I am bringing you the movie, Time Bandits. What say you to that?
