I wasn't even going to say anything until next week's post! I feel very loved. :)


Last year's Happy Birthday Bill thread. There was a certain post in which three birthdays were mentioned: Bill's, Selena's, and yours. Pass our birthday wishes to Selena on Monday!


I hope you are planning to do something special with someone special! How in the world did I end up in the top spam buster roster? I swear, I did nothing!!! (((hugs))) and smoochies!


If not, then you're not planning on chickening out, are you? :D Nah! I guess I talk too much, but at least now someone else is picking up the slack: Go Boxie!

In fact, I just got my vision back about an hour ago... sure do hate those drops that dilate my pupils! The eye doc said my vision is fine. He said that I can get some "readers" if I'm having a hard time seeing fine print on pill bottles and the like, but that's it. I told him about the frequent watering of my right eye, and he suggested a warm washcloth. And then he told me to come back in two years. :O


Have fun at teh computerz!


I often do this myself, Especially when safety goggles fail. But sometimes just because there is a fan which never stops in my living room.


a washcloth is known to do wonders for all sorts of irritant effects... somehow. Good for unexplainable diaper rashes on babies, f.ex.


Hope you had somebody to drive you home afterward. Each time I get an eye exam and get my pupils dilated, I see stars for hours, and have to wear those roll-up shades they give you [u]plus[/u] my sunglasses just to walk outside, and that's on a cloudy day. Driving is out of the question.


I'm already quite photosensitive (like Kodak paper). I don't want to know what it is going to be like once I need an eye exam requiring pupil dilation. Gonna need a nuclear blast visor.


Happy upcoming birthday Soni...hope it's a spectacular one :D !

Wish Soni a Hippy Burfday now as she will be celebrating over the week end and not know what day it is by Tueslday. ;)


But I like the sound of it. Somehow, more Germanic than it was before. Ah. (Liesel, Diesel.)


Happy birthday to Sonja, then. W00t!

Should I wish you a happy birthday now or wait until the real day on Tuesday? What the heck. Happy birthday, Sonja. This year, celebrate BEFORE the date.
