Today will be a short day at work. I have an eye exam. There's a good possibility I'll be doing dilation tricks this afternoon. This means when my Optometrist says "let me look deeply into your eyes" it has more to do with cones and rods and the lining of the back of my eyeball. The main purpose is to see if my glaucoma has progressed, or if the disease is still locked behind some sort of stasis field. Hopefully, there will not be a return to eyedrops.
Andy Towle has retired his blog, Towleroad. I've read it daily for so many years. It will be missed.
Besides being Tuesday, today is also garbage day... and it's windy; not as bad this morning as it was last evening, which is why I waited to put out my trash. The gustiness last evening, besides knocking over my resin lawn furniture, took out several of my neighbor's recycle cans. Now empty aluminum cans clitter clatter as they chase each other down the street.
I got a text from my brother yesterday, my sister-in-law has tested positive for Covid 19. If she has any underlying health issues, I've not heard of them. He told me he hasn't been tested for is showing minor symptoms. This is how it goes. I go for my 2nd shot on Saturday. I can't wait. They say the second dose packs a bit of a punch. Gee... I'm supposed to go to the movies Saturday night. If they show up, I hope they wait until after the show. As for Sunday? If I'm feeling a bit of the malaise, I have no problem taking off work.
OMG sorry about your SIL! I can't wait until I get the vaccine. Ugh.ReplyDelete
And yes! I read Andy's post yesterday. When he posted those two pics of himself it hit me I've been reading Towleroad and JoeMyGod for more than a decade. I'll miss his posts. He had great style.
And CPAC was a dumpster fire of fuckery and lies. Not that it's not always disgusting, but really. And I hope I don't have to see Cheeto this year again. Barf.
Good luck with the eye exam!
What made Andy's blog good was he included serious bits and funny bits and JMG is all seriousness.Delete
Towleroad was one of my go-to spots. I'm gonna miss it.ReplyDelete
Entertaining and informative, I too will miss it.Delete
RTG uses drops for his glaucoma. GO UNCLE JOE! FUCK CPAC! and I prefer joe over andy.ReplyDelete
You know Conservatives are preparing to shit bricks because everything they've been lying to themselves about is... well... a lie.Delete
I have read very little of either Towleroad or Joe My God. The pop ups and ads I find very distracting and generally avoid blogs with them. Can you tell I love ads and commercials? Seems we cant go anywhere with just a clean simple read.ReplyDelete
They only really bother me on Youtube, or when you want to watch a news video.Delete
Stay well Dave.ReplyDelete
I'm fine, it's bother dealing the dilating of the eyes.Delete
I'm very pleased to hear about Biden's good ratings so far. Republicans don't understand concepts like "decency" and "honesty".ReplyDelete
And you know his ratings grate the hell out of conservatives.Delete
