So today, I made myself laugh while I was getting ready for work. here is the story.

I was doing up my hair with some hair gel in the kitchen and I was looking for my comb, I didn’t know where it was, but I needed it. Since I was in the kitchen I was looking dead onto a fork and for a split second, I thought I had a brilliant idea. Then I laughed it off and called my self an idiot.

I just got contacts for the first time ever - it’s pretty crazy to look around w/o glasses on and see everything so clearly. 

On the other hand, it took my optometrist forever to put them in, I thought I was going to die.  apparently I have small eyes =P
although it only took my two tries to get them in myself.

It’s the weird feeling when you first put them in.  It takes some getting used to.

After awhile, it’s easy, tho.

Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms;, I make it my duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a species. To this end, I hold M&M;duels.

Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, I apply pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the “loser,” and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round.

I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms;are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically inferior. I have hypothesized that the blue M&Ms;as a race cannot survive long in the intense theater of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world.

Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on very rare occasions it gives the candy extra strength. In this way, the species continues to adapt to its environment.

When I reach the end of the pack, I am left with one M&M;, the strongest of the herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to M&M;Mars, A Division of Mars, Inc., Hackettstown, NJ 17840-1503 U.S.A., along with a 3x5 card reading, “Please use this M&M;for breeding purposes.”

This week they wrote back to thank me, and sent me a coupon for a free 1/2 pound bag of plain M&Ms;. I consider this “grant money.” I have set aside the weekend for a grand tournament. From a field of hundreds, we will discover the True Champion.

There can be only one.

^^ it was funny, it took forever to get them in the first time, but afterwards I couldn’t even feel them… my eyes were a bit irritated beforehand (allergies), but actually felt better with the contacts in.  It’s been 8 hours now, though, and they’re sort of irritating.  I have to take em out.

I found it harder to take them out than put them in.  I feel like I’m going to pinch my eyeball.

Gas in Salt Lake City was $3/gal compared to almost $3.50/gal in the Bay Area.

I get daily disposable contacts cuz I normally wear glasses during the week.  I only use the contacts for sports related activities on weekends.  The daily disposables feel way more comfortable to me, plus my optometrist said they’re not all that different from regular contacts, so you can get way with wearing the same pair for a few days, so they’re not that expensive for me either.

Getting them out has always been easier for me.  you just need to find a method that works.  The pinch for me is the best.  I look to one side and then pinch the other to get them off.

Your eyes will get used to them i wear mine for like 10 hrs most of the time now and i have been wearing them since 9th grade, so almost 17 years now.  I told my eye doctor that and he gave me ones that are supposed to be better for people who are on computers a lot and wear them for long periods of time.

although you should keep a bottle of the rewetting drops.  depending on how dry the climate is you should use them when needed.  although don’t over do it, i hear your if you use them too much your eyes adapt so that it wont produce as much tears because it gets used to the drops.
