eyesight matters

my eyes are not the best, but I have full 20-20 vision and I do not need glasses to do my day-to-day stuff. but since of late (I mean like since last year) I've been getting headaches after a full day of work and every night it's headache medicine or else the whole night's screwed. So I go to the eye doc and he prescribes another pair of glasses especially for computer and reading purposes.. 'another' meaning yes I had glasses from before but never used them coz I hate wearing glasses to start with ::S:S. i know it's my own fault but oh well... anyway, the new pair was used for the first few months and then thrown away.. rather couldn't find or didn't bother.. and now I've been getting the daily headaches so I'm back to the geekness! but hey I have farsightedness or whatever.. so I only wear glasses for the computer and reading.. I always thought that kind of glasses are for when you get to your naughty forties.. i'm only half way there but argh~

compared to my friends, family, and co-workers, my eyes are better.. at least I think they are.. yesterday I went to see the eye specialist with a friend.. well not for me but for my friend.. coz the friend has to get a cornea transplant : it sounded scary but it's more popular (not just among adults, also among younger people) than I thought it is.. it's sad how a lot more people nowadays have to wear some kind of aid to see just to do daily stuff...

oh well... i think i complaint too much.. come to think of it, problems with your eyesight is no small matter..

the race goes on...

80th annual oscar's playing on the background.. whilst wandering around in the web, I was watching the glittery stars and their expensive couture.. getting nominations and gold men for everything and nothing..

anyhoo.. u know what I was thinking.. we do everything possible in our lives for what.. when we were small parents do the best they can, register us in best schools possible.. we like nutheads, go with the flow not to mention the crazy competition in schools with friends and also the parents.. anyways, after struggling for good quarter of your life we graduate from grade school and start the next race of college and university applications.. there goes another four years of reckless, sleepless nights with stupid ass-in-ments and the likes.. some drop out.. some have enough courage and determination or whatever it takes to get over with the four years..

some are still confused after that.. well i am.. I think most of u are too or no? lot of them think they have it all figured out with a flashy career n all that jazz.. most like me are still confused.. why are we leading this race of a life.. the crazyness, jealousies (word?), savings, bank accounts, tears, lies, haircuts...

why oh why... and the race goes on..

the world is full of...

male chauvinists? desperate fuglies? or just nutcases with no tongue brakes?

not venting.. speaking out loud i guess.. argh may be it is just venting..

where I work it's casual fridays everyday.. put on jeans n' a top, off I go to work every morning. But I make sure I wear decent.. anyways couple of months ago.. at work this fugly western-chinese man passed a comment.. 'crystal you look sexy today'.. i ignored and thought may be he couldn't find a better way or a more appropriate word to give a compliment..

last week was yet another stupid remark.. I go to the back.. that same employee goes 'crystal, i'm picturing you naked' ... I was like wtf? I thought I couldn't hear it the first time and was polite enough to pardon.. then he repeats.. so I had heard it right the first time. I was furious but managed to ignore the nasty comment and replied with a casual 'give it a rest man'.. spoke to the person I wanted to speak with and went to my desk.. other co-worker who heard it found it very awkward too..

I dont know I found it very uncomfortable. or may be i'm overreacting.. am I?

anyway... some people just need to get laid... or else desperation overflows to the point that if it wasn't at work he would've gotten a good one across his face..

simon says...

young.. good are likeable.. n' you got a great voice..

.. i think it's probably the first time out of all seasons that i started watching american idol regularly. there's a lot of talent out there and also more freaks who shave their body hair just to be on tv..
anyways, this young fella David Archuleta was noticed by all the judges and the contestants, and i think he'd be a crowd favourite if he survive to go on to the next rounds..

hyped-up valentine

overrated it is.. very.. hyped up? a bit too much..

not saying i'm over the moon and celebrating it nor am i saying i'm not.. its just weird that.. coz.. aren't you supposed to be celebrating the love throughout the year and not just do something special on just one day? show that u love someone by buying chocolates, roses, expensive and sparkly stuff just on this day? its good.. but i'd rather have something sweet and simple done to show the love every week.. would mean so much than an expensive gift..

not mean to be bitchy and complaint about everything, but since everyone has their own little opinion about the over-promoted, and overly pumped v'day, i have my own opinion too now can I not..

happy valentine's day everyone.. don't get hit too hard by that cupid..

of sororities and shopping...

what's this blogging about weekends.. may be i'm too pre-occupied during the weekdays I don't pay much attention to stuff happening around me or nothing really happens.. heh

friday noonish, phone rings at work.. friend of mine calls and talks me into going across that night with a bunch of girls for shopping.. wooot! in my mind - there goes my pay cheque. that's one of my new year resolutions by the way, reducing the amount of money spent on shopping.. esp. shoes and clothes..

anyway inevitably I say yes sir! go home pack a few .. hit the road... the girls I had to hang out with were those sorority types that I hate the most.. I don't even know how to describe them I just know they are those annoying and bitchy kind, who sorta walks about five feet off the ground and live in a dreamy world..

'like' was almost the only word they knew.. for ex. 'my phone bill like was so like expensive, and like my dad like was not like impressed'..that by the way was an actual sentence that came outa one of them.. anyways that ain't my business.. however I think it was a big generalization and a stereotyping from my part.. when you get to know them it wasn't that bad. they were quite nice and i think have good intentions and a big heart inside... or not..

the weekend I thought will be a nightmare and one of the worst, didn't turn out that bad afterall..

for better or worse, I didn't shop 'til I drop... quite happy about that!

junky stranger in the hood

last weekend was umm quite eventful.. the roomy and I drove to see some friends hoping to spend the saturday there and come back late.. alas it snowed like crazy and so we had to head back early afternoon as we didn't wanna be snow-stuck (word?)...

woke up to a sunday morning that was white outside.. but weird inside.. things at our place had moved.. I woke up before the other (as usual), and thought the changes were due to roomy's late night or something and didn't really bother changing them back.. roomy wakes up.. looks for OJ not to be found.. he claimed he didn't move anything, do any of the changes that both of us noticed.. by this time we were quite alarmed.. holy smokes!

somebody had come inside our house while we were asleep.. creepyness!

strawberries and bananas missing.. OJ's missing from the fridge.. towels in the washroom, a pair of runners, shaving cream, nail cutter gone missing.. we think we locked the doors like we always do.. but a stranger, a creepy and a junky one at that, had come into our house stolen wicked stuff, while we were snoring.. it gave me creeps and scared the hell outa me..

locks were changed with some hope.. what else to be done...

on a happier note.. giants won the superbowl. not that I was following nfl at all.. watched only the last two minutes and a bit of the celebrations..
