Lucky me!

It's about freaking time. Though I've been touting the eye patch for years, I've never had a real reason to wear one. I mean, sure they're fashionable, but I am not, if you can't tell from my collection of holey-Lee shorts and Goodwill-brand t-shirts.

However, I just had my second Lasik this past weekend and what did they give me to wear when I'm sleeping??? That's right!

An eyepatch!

I was a little disappointed though. It's just a clear one that I tape on my face (with the stickiest 3m tape in the's fin to take GALLONS of Goo Gone to get this junk off my face) and the nurse there said I don't have to wear it all the time.

And she gave me a very strange look when I asked if I COULD wear it all the time. She said it's my life, so I took that to mean I had to wear it all the time.

I've been getting a lot of stares in the gym...and driving. Good times.

Now you can officially be a pirate, even if you don't want to be one. you will have to tell me about the LASIK

So vision is "meh". This is my second surgery, so it's supposed to take longer to heal, but I do not have a good feeling about this...
