    I own some SW figures, but they're just... not really into them. Not a lot of accessories, some of them don't have proper joints and there's way too little from the EU. I want a Tenel Ka, darnit! :mad:

    So, DantanaSkywalker and I are getting to go see The Script on October 22. We've been looking for a band in common to see together and this was an awesome find tonight.
    TrakNar and RK_Striker_JK_5 like this.

    I want to go but I'm broke (as always), so it'll never happen. :(

    I went to get my diploma, and my genius instructor hadn't got it done yet. [face_plain]

    Way to go instructor, falling behind on paperwork. :p Congratulations, though!

    As for CEII? Hah! CVI was hard enough on my wallet as it was. Unless someone pays for my airfare, I'm definitely not going. I'd love to and I'd love to turn it into a larger vacation and backpack through Germany, but that's not happening unless I win the lottery.

    Was this the girl instructor or the ridiculous person?

    You mean Mr. Always Compensating For Something? Him.

    I hope my brother and his significant other take these rats back soon. I think I'm allergic to them. And they stink. The gerbil doesn't bother me. It also doesn't try to bite me, even though I was assured "Oh, the rats don't bite, they're very sweet!"

    So that concert Ish and I mentioned we're going to? Got cancelled today. No explanation, just a "It's cancelled, here's your money back." Very irritated and disappointed.

    Ugh, that sucks, Dantana. :( *Waves fist in the air*

    My mom and I went to Concord for an eye appointment for her. Surgery. We waited 15-20 minutes. Surgery took 5 total. We then went to another building for a test where air's blown into your eyes. Total time in the waiting room, 20 minutes. Time for the test. 2...

    And on the way there we got stuck behind a truck painting lines on a road. So yeah...

    I hate that air-blown-into-eyes test.

    I actually don't mind the air test, I just hate the optomotrist in general. There's nothing that they do that really bothers me or pains me, I just feel like I'm taking a test the entire time and test anxiety kicks in. I will say I'm not a huge fan of having my eyes dialated though, it usually gives me a headache.

    Blah. I hate having my eyes dilated, and I have to do it every 6 months.

    Is it December yet? I decided to take a full course load this year so I can graduate sometime this decade, but now I have no time for writing and it saddens me :(

    Don't mind the dilated eyes portion, provided the doctor can get the drops in my eyes. I don't necessarily mind the eye pressure test, either, provided again that the doctor can get the numbing drops in my eyes. It's getting those pesky drops into my eyes that's the problem.

    Perhaps every time I go in for those tests, they should just knock my ass out like they did for my eye surgery. Certainly had no trouble getting drops and other things into my eyes then! :p

    My least favorite eye thing was when I was getting cleared for LASIK in 1999. My EEG from when I was a kid showed that I should be having seizures once an hour, but I have never had a single seizure. Nevertheless, they sent me to a neurologist to make sure I wouldn't have a seizure during the surgery. He tested this by numbing my eyes, taking a metal probe and jabbing me in my eyeball to see if he could trigger something more than an uncomfortable squirm from me. For the record, I still haven't had a seizure.

    For which we are grateful. Could be you're having seizures, just not the throw-yourself-on-the-floor-and-beat-yourself-to-death-on-the-furniture types (TM my epileptic mother). My brother has seizures every 2-5 minutes, and you wouldn't know it, generally. . . . I should probably get tested for those.

    Anyway. I hate the blow-in-the-eyes test, too. Makes me jerk and hit my head on the test thingy every time, and I always have a bruise on my forehead.

    Can someone explain this air test thingumy to me? In all my times seeing an optician I've never had air blown in my eyes. It seems strange and/or confusing, probably both.

    It's supposedly to test the pressure in the eye, but I personally think it's for the optometrist's kicks and giggles. They make you put your face in this contraption, hold your eyes open, and they blow puffs of air into your eyes.

    I had the pressure test done a different way for years and had no idea what people were talking about until I moved and got a new optomitrist and he did it with the puffs of air. I actually like the air better, but it makes me jump, too.

    Re seizures: Yep! People have absence seizures that can last only seconds, often no one else or even the person notices they can be so short. First time I had a patient that did that (but for long enough to really notice) it scared the crap out of me, he was in the middle of a sentence and just spaced out.

    I was taking medication once that was actually causing me to have partial seizures. After I stopped taking that medication, I didn't have a problem.

    As for eye pressure tests, my eye doctor uses the metal probe to poke my eyes more often than the air test. The eye-poke test doesn't bother me too much, but after my eye surgery, it bothers my right eye more.

    I just have this thing about my eyes. I hate anything really poking or entering them.

    That's the main reason why I will never, ever get contacts.
