I Can See Clearly Now …

4 Sep

… the rain is gone. Sunday sucked. Simply said. Were it not for the great U.S. Open matches, the day would have been a total waste for me.

… because I picked up my new glasses on Saturday. They’re rimless and more stylish than my old pair. And, they’re a better, more up-to-date prescription (which always helps). Still, I’m not convinced I want to keep them. The titanium is just too light, the frames feel too loose, they look funny, and it’s been a weird adjustment. Thankfully, LensCrafters‘ 30-day guarantee gives me that flexibility. So I’m keeping my eyes open. Pun intended.

… that school’s back in session. Yes, it takes longer to drive down Comm. Ave and the city’s just generally more crowded. But most importantly, shopping at Shaw’s is no longer a pleasure. (I mean, not including the eye candy, which is great and back in abundance.) You may know that I take a small degree of pride in my ability to get through the self-checkout lane quickly, and these newbies do nothing but hold me up and make all the lines longer. Avoid 4–6p.m. at all costs.

… that some people just suck. I needed an activity today, so I ventured up north to Jordan’s in Reading to check out (but not take advantage of) the trapeze lessons (and have a hamburger at Fuddruckers), and then I went to the Burlington Mall. Well, what must have been a half hour later, I still hadn’t found a parking spot at the mall (yes, I was being really patient) and I decided to just go home. So a giant F.U. to the two people who literally stole my spots. One was right behind me and wouldn’t back up so I could get the spot I had been waiting for because she wanted it, and another pulled out in front of me and grabbed a spot that had become available and that I was clearly entitled to. Not sure I’ve cursed that much in a long time. (That is, until someone in my building removed my clothes from the washers within five minutes of it being done. WTF? People can’t give a person a five minute grace period?) ARRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!
