2 Minute Drill

I went to the optometrist yesterday and am trying out contacts. It has been about three years since I last wore contacts. I stopped because of weighting problems. They’d always spin around and not fit correctly. So far these new guys are working well. We’ll see how they stand up to a day in front of the computer though. The doc also put dialator in my eyes, making me look like some sort of whacked out David Bowie or marmoset. That stuff makes your eyes really really tired.

I heard that Martha Stewart got out of jail. I’m happy for that because I saw this Jean-​Claude Van Damme movie last night where he was in jail and jail doesn’t seem like a very nice place. I bet Martha is a lot tougher now and we’ll see that change reflected in her home designs. Fully concrete rooms all painted in grey/​green, spoons that double as files or tunnel digging instruments and who could forget the one-​piece jumpsuit to facilitate wrestling with your cellmate. Rowr.

I’m slightly peeved because my attempts at involvement are being tested already. Next Tuesday I’m supposed to go in for training for Rocky River Stables, but that same night, at the same time, my block club is having its monthly meeting and Joe Cimperman is going to be there to talk with us. I think I’m going to call up the stables and see if I can rearrange a training session, because I’m leaning toward the block club meeting, so I can meet Cimperman and get a bit better feel for the guy and his ideas for his ward.

Here is a huge list of sites to ping when you update your blogs.

  1. Hey Harvey, it’s Sikorski. Long story short, I Google’d my name while at work (for professional research, of course) and hit #14 was your blog entry about running into me in Cleveland about 6 months ago. Funny how things happen. Anyway, just wanted to drop a line, and my email address. I hope all is well, and don’t whine about contacts until you’ve worn the hard gas-​permeable ones since 7th grade because the only alternative is Coke bottle-​ish glasses. Yeah, welcome to my life. Take care, buddy.

  2. Hey man! If you want me to take your name down I will. Don’t want you to get in trouble with the SEC. I hope Chi-​town is treating you right.

  3. Ha ha! Much like anybody who hears that I work for a government agency, you think there’s some level of secrecy involved. I really don’t care where my name pops up on the Internet (within reason, of course). Leave up the posting, it was good reading. I just wanted to keep in touch, and I’ll let you know the next time I come to Ohio. Chi-​town is cold, but good. Peace out.
