The Aralis event was pretty awesome, and I am saying that despite there being utterly miserable weather for all of Saturday (until about 2:30 in the morning Sunday morning, when it randomly became kinda amazingly awesome and warm), and the fact that I managed to twist my ankle pretty good going up and down the stairs. Way to go, staff.

cut for long )

After the event ended, people were kind enough to help me with my stuff so I didn't have to walk down the hill again (thank you so much, [livejournal.com profile] dunriver!). I had to leave somewhat faster/earlier than I wanted to, because we were meeting my parents/brother for dinner. My brother was up from NJ for the weekend and wanted to see me (and I wanted to see him), which I only found out on Wednesday, but they were awesome and agreed to meet us at the 99 near the site for dinner. So had a nice dinner with them and got to catch up and see my brother, and then they left and we switched tables to join the group that had come over from the site.

Good times.

Eye stuff

So a few weeks ago I went to the eye doctor to get my eyes checked out. Good news is that they're not much worse than they were a year ago, so I don't need new long-distance glasses. Bad news is that sitting in front of a computer screen for eight hours a day is not doing awesome things for my eyes, so I did get new glasses specifically for sitting in front of a computer.

I got them Tuesday evening, and they're taking some getting used to, but yesterday after work was the first time in a very long while that my eyes weren't just hurting at the end of the day, so yay.

Also got measured for contact lenses. On the first 'lesson' on getting them in, I only managed to get one in after 45 minutes. On the second lesson, I managed to get both in... but couldn't get them back out. Baby steps, I guess. But it'll be nice to be able to see at larps.
