Okay, new people. Time to pony up. I need to see who I'm annoyed with. [Wink]

(egad, munga, you look EXACTLY as I pictured you! Which is to say, like my pal Lisa from the 8th grade. You're not a convert from Catholicism from WV, are you? Gorgeous kids, too!)

I will say, I don't wear glasses anymore. John and I both had them lasic'd and it is a huge, wonderful change. If anyone has been wondering whether or not to do it... my answer is, absolutely. It was even worth the vomiting I had for 24 hours after, in reaction to the topical anesthetic.

Though a not-often-publicized but relatively frequently-occuring side effect of the lasik is chronic, incurable dry-eye.
Plus it does not always work.
Plus there's a decent probability that an initially sucessful surgery will revert after a number of years.

Anyway that's what my opthalmologist friend said.

Not that it's not fabulous and a great fit for lots of people. Just...you know...it's not perfect.

I'll get eye surgery once people have had it for 20+ years with no difficulties. OK, not likely in my lifetime, but I'm kind of sensitive about the ol' peepers; I don't want to have to depend on the government for support, and all of my established skills require vision.

Well, my mom is an optician, and everyone gets "far sighted" around age forty, which cannot be prevented, as it isn't lens related, but rather related to the shape of the eye changing with age.

But, I really like my Lasic. I'll get glasses for reading just like every other Old Guy when I'm old, if I have to, but I tell you, I was blind as a bat.

I was aware of the possibilities, just sayin' it worked great for us.

I had LASIK last March and had about 4 months of dry eyes, it's better now.

My understanding is that chronic dry eye is mostly an issue for certain ethnic groups; Chinese have this problem a lot more than Europeans.

Yeah, the farsightedness comes from losing the ability to focus the internal lens, hits people about 40-45 (it'll be fabulous when somebody fixes this. It seems to be due to the lens hardening...someone will figure out how to soften it up again or come up with a decent prosthetic). (Munga I think you meant it isn't cornea related, which part is what LASIK modifies.)

It is pretty darn expensive, though. I probably should have waited until I had the money sitting around not doing anything else. But since I got it, now my wife wants it, and...it seems like a bad idea to push back on it. [Wink] Thank goodness for medical flex spending accounts.

Jordan, you know I'm in my 30s!!!

Tommy- no, I'm just a Papa John's girl. I really like the green pepperchinos (however that is spelled) that come with those pizzas.

scifi- yep yer right, I was just too lazy to check it.

I had my eyes done 4 or 5 years ago. Best money my parents ever spent on me.

I love it. Had to have it done a second time to get the corretion to 20/20. The doctor had told me this was likely with the amount of correction I needed. It was all covered.

I would do it again in a heart beat.

I feel sort of obligated to say that LASIK is worth a sober consideration of the risks, especially when they present you with the agreement that you will not sue for damages if something bad happens. Read at least a couple of stories of people who had complications, and think about them, and decide how much not wearing glasses or contacts is worth to you...for me it solved some headaches and a lot of minor daily inconveniences, and I decided the risk was worth it.

I could swear I've seen a picture.

But that has nothing to do with me NOT being engaged to Jordan. He'd be my first choice if I switched teams. *smooch*

Found it!

"Tommy- no, I'm just a Papa John's girl. I really like the green pepperchinos (however that is spelled) that come with those pizzas. "

Papa J's is alright on occasion. Davannis is I would argue the best pizza you can get in the Midwest (besides a few places which have pretty convincing East Coast style pizza). My friends and I used to get Dominoes a lot, until the friend whose house we played video games at got a dog. When the pizza delivery woman came up the dog ran up and bit her leg. After the trial, Dominoes refused to deliver to his house anymore [Smile]

But I never ate at the Pizza Shack. It was the place where two cops got gunned down one evening while eating (plus every year or so somebody gets shot on that corner anyways.) Remember it now?

Naw, first, John and I lived mostly on the east side- Maplewood, E St Paul, Shoreview, and we were married in 91 and then lived in Utah, the shooting was in 92, and we moved to the twin cities in 93, so we missed all the buzz.

But I see online that they made an anchovy pizza. Anyone who makes stuff like that is a-ok in my book. I also like white-sauce for pizza sauce, too, when I can find it.

Wow, sorry I don't really know how that thing works. If it asks you for my password for Facebook just type in "jacob2" and that will open my homepage.

I'll change it later, but I trust you guys. If anyone knows how to take that pic of little John shooting me and putting it somewhere it can be seen without having to log in, please do it for me.

Won't do any good- that link doesn't actually have anything specific to you in it- it's just the facebook home page.
