Hello hello!

Well, I got the verdict today, and I can have LASIK! November 11th is the big day. I'm really excited, but also kind of nervous, especially after hearing about all the things that can go wrong, but Mom said (quite rightly) that most of that is just a bunch of legal-covering-butt stuff - stuff they have to tell you to avoid getting sued. But anyway, so it's a Go!!! :)

Speaking of cheerful things... I'm not sure anyone in that 'circle' still reads this site, but a big fat CONGRATULATIONS to Aaron and Nitza on the birth of their first child on October 5th, daughter Sofía Lilí! That picture of her cross-eyed in the baby carrier is a heartbreaker if I ever saw one...

So they say bad things come in threes... do good things follow the same pattern? I hope so, because that will mean I'll get an A on m linguistics exam tomorrow morning, despite the fact that I have barely looked at the material, opting instead to hang out at Audrey's and Steven's and mooch a free dinner and watch the third presidential debate (and yell in chorus at the TV about Bush once again not answering questions - he never did tell us straight out if he would overturn Roe v. Wade).

Off to write a few e-mails and then turn in for the night. Cheerio!

Hi Jess,
Don't worry about LASIK. They have to tell you anything and everything that may possibly go wrong. I have seen some awesome results so don't even think about anything bad happening to you. You will be perfectly fine!!
