So I finally picked up my glasses yesterday, marking the last time I'm covered under my dad's benefits plan. No more free designer frames for Steph. It's the end of an era. ;p

My vision hasn't gotten steadily worse over the past few years, thank goodness (well, it has, but by negligible degrees apparently). No more threats of going blind by 18. So my current glasses should last me a reasonably long while. Which is good. I like them.

So I got sunglasses, ones that are the right prescription and hopefully won't give me headaches. They're okay looking and nothing special, particularly in comparison with my Ralph frames, but they're functional and thus what I need.

101th Reason Why Steph Needs a New Job

So yesterday after my career fair, I was tiiiired because being bright and shiny and ~interesting~ to potential employers can be draining (also, was wearing heels) and eager to get down with the install of the Rift beta (Scott gave me a key! <3) so that I could try it out. I'd heard good things and I'd heard bad things and dammit, I wanted to know for myself!

Anyway, didn't happen because I found out I had to work. Joie.

The shift itself wasn't too terribly bad... the one manager I terribly dislike was only around for half an hour, and the shift itself moved along at a decent pace. I bruised my knuckle badly, but it was my own fault (I think, I don't actually remember how I did it) and everything was otherwise okay. One of my jobs for the night was to wipe down the front doors because they are glass and people leave greasy hand prints all over them. Easy enough.

And yet while I was up front squatting down to wipe one of the other doors (little kid hands), this guy comes up behind me on his way out, reaches down underneath the tail of my shirt to snap my thong and then leer at me, saying "Definitely liking the uniform, honey."

Wat. WAT.

I don't know if I'm disappointed in myself that I didn't turn around and deck him, or just relieved. I just stood there with super death glare that actually made him go all shifty-eyed, and when I said "Don't you dare touch me again or I'm going back inside and raising you hell." he scurried off like a mouse.

And because Steph is Steph, the question of the day is wtf am I going to wear? HALP ME.

And... because it is already 12:30 at night and the thing's at 10 in the morning... probably not gonna be crazy helpful BUT IF YOU'RE AWAKE. :D
stitch built a castle, accomplishment!

So a couple days ago...

I actually braved the bathroom scale for the first time in a long because... huh, actually, I don't even know. Morbid curiosity maybe? Aaaaaand magically, I've lost 15 pounds. Yes? Yes. YESSSSS!!!

The last time I weighed myself was well before Christmas so it seems I've managed to get myself through the holiday (and staying over at the boyfriend's) foodfest with little lasting effect. This? Is awesomesauce.

In other news? Mneh, day hasn't gone off to a very good start but nothing crazy bad's happened. Small mercies, yeah?

So I've been having mad crashing problems playing games on Envy and for a month or two I'd been determined to buy a new desktop. Well, come Boxing Day, the boyfriend and I trekked out to Canada Computers where we slipped and slid our way around a crazy icy parking lot, stood outside for a while, and then proceeded to buy enough stuff to warrant an express trip to the checkout at the back. Hellz yeah.

In summary, $1200 netted me this.

After the boyfriend fought for an hour or two to switch out his power source (and graphics card, but really it was the power source that made things difficult), we started on putting together my baby. And I had a hand in it. Yeah, Miss Klutz Attack took one for the team. :D

So if it falls apart six months. It's because I make a bad case of screwing. Well. You know what I mean.

End result? Forgive the ridiculous mess, I've still been figuring out what goes where and how and what to do with all that extra whatever. ^^;

Can I say hell yeah? HELL. FREAKING. YES.
christmastime britney


is heavy. Just so's you know. And since I'm the uber weightlifter of the house (o.O;;;), I get the honors of heaving it in and out of the oven. Yayyy~

Christmas party tonight at my house. There's gonna be a lot of people. Like... like, I don't think there's been that many people for 5 years or so in our house many people. ^^; Taking a few minutes now to fly-by entry this, half because I really wanted to use a Christmas icon. How often do I get to use a Christmas icon? :D

The other half, obviously is to say:

My internet. is going. like. this.

Arghhh! I'm inclined to think it's Vicki's download of COD:MW so all I've got to do is wait it out but... I don't wanna. Game time now now nooooow. :( I have a reindeer nose to win!

In other news, while I was out on a quick shopping run with the family at the Sheraton Center, this little girl came up to me, and said with this perfectly frank expression on her face: "You would look so much better in hooker boots."

Yeah, okay.
