sticky?

I made peanut butter and honey toast for breakfast, with some delicious black tea.

Honey I learned, is not only very sticky, it is also very tricky.

How can honey be tricky? Well it somehow managed to get all over my desk, my mouse pad, my hand, my wrist, my hair elastics, my chair, my sweater, and smeared all on the side of my dress.

I am one sticky honey mess.. and I feel like I am 2 years old :P

But I taste delicious!

inflamed

I went to the Ophthalmologist today.

I don't know if anyone has noticed, but I've been wearing my glasses a lot lately. I hate it. My left eye has been unable to focus completely, and I can't wear contacts because it makes it worse. Finally decided to go to a real doctor, and to never go to an Optometrist again!! He was useless and I hate him. He helped me temporarily, but in general, was a waste of time. The only bonus was that each time I went to have him look at my left eye, I never paid anything.

So the Ophthalmologist, was very nice. She put some iodine into my eyes - to which now my tears are yellow - and saw that my poor cornea of my left eye is INFLAMED. It's swollen and therefore can't focus, which is why I can't really see. So I have these milky white eye drops - one drop every 2 hours for 4 days and then every 3 hours, and I have to put some weird gel stuff in my eye lid when I sleeps. I will go back on Monday and she thinks I can go back to wearing contacts then, which should help further heal my poor eye! I can't wait until Monday, I just want to wear contacts again!

(and a point to which my dear friend Amy made :: My eye being inflamed - sounds like it should be a super power, sadly its not!)

beach bums

This past weekend was friend Jen Cohen's 28th birthday - and we celebrated at the beach! We spent the weekend in Rehoboth in a gorgeous condo, a 15 minute walk from the beach. Anthony, Chris and I took Friday off and Greg Rosko came down from NY to join in on the fun! In total there were 11 - Jen (birthday girl!), Billy, Dustin, Nancy, Ant, Chris, Greg, Molly, Eugene, Susie and me!

Friday we were lazy, laid on the beach, enjoyed dinner and the boys enjoyed beer from the Dog Fish Head brewery. Afterwards we played mini golf - which was pretty difficult to be honest. It was an island themed, and the boys wore island hats! We finished the evening playing board games, which is always competitive and fun.

Saturday we woke up early, had breakfast at the corner "Euro" breakfast shop - Greg ate an EGGnormous (it really was) breakfast sammich, I enjoyed a banana waffle and a mocha frappe. (with an accent over the E) The beach was sunny and HOT. The water was much much too cold to go swimming in, but we laid around and played dominoes, I read for class, and ate lots of snacks. That evening was a big mess - we tried to grill food for dinner (grill was much too small), cook in the kitchen, drink and watch movies - while being pushed to head out to the boardwalk. Once we finally made it to the boardwalk - we played many games and won little stuffed animals. (One of which I'm sending as a present to mah friend - can't say more yet, it's a surprise!) We also played a bunch of video games in the arcade and Ant bought me orange swirl ice cream in a cone! It's my favorite beach ice cream, so yummy.

Sunday we played plastic ball (in our attempt to NOT damage any cars in the parking lot, an empty water bottle will do!) until some a-hole ruined our fun, played around at the pool and headed home. It was a great long weekend! The weather held up pretty well, sunny for 90% of the beach day! and no rain until the ride home.

(hopefully pictures to come!)
