Picked 'em up last week. I like how the stems resemble '70s hotel decor.

1. Visit eye doctor and get new prescription/glasses/contacts

I've had this prescription (and these specific glasses, actually) for entirely too long. I'm not sure why I can't be arsed to go to the eye doctor, which is why I made it one of my 101 Things. I actually had no plans to complete this any time soon, but the decision was made for me. While driving on the beltway on Friday afternoon, my glasses suddenly exploded: the frame sprang apart and the lens flew out. I was on my way to drop off my husband at MAGfest in Alexandria, so I drove the rest of the way lacking my left eye, which isn't so much unsafe as it is extremely annoying. After I dropped him off I stopped at the closest parking lot and called up the first listing when I searched for "eye" on my GPS. It ended up being a For Eyes on Little River Turnpike, who agreed to squeeze me in at the very end of the day. I'd been meaning to get a new prescription for years, so while I was there I went ahead and got an eye exam and picked out new frames. They gave me a trial pair of contacts and repaired my old glasses for free.

For a long time my contact prescription was the same in both eyes, meaning I didn't have to worry about keeping track of left and right lenses. The last time I went to the eye doctor, they told me they were just slightly different. And of course I've just been dealing with having one slightly blurry eyeball all this time. What can I say: I'm lazy and a little dumb. This latest doctor, who gave me a very thorough and efficient exam, assured me that yes, I really do have the same prescription in both eyes. That makes me happy.

My new frames will show up in a week or so, at which point I will count this Thing as complete.
