Day 10 after PRK, patient, patient … January 22, 2007

It has been 10 days since my PRK surgery on Jan. 12th. I guess I am one more person who is misled by , who believes he or she can really return to “normal” activities in days. Compared to my -7.5 nearsightness, my vision is improved. Without glasses, I can use computer if I squint my eyes, I can drive if I don’t need to read signs. But it is definitely not where I have expected my vision to be.

In the last a couple of days, I have read dozens of articles online to try to find out if my current situation is normal. Luckily, there have been many people who had false hope on fast recovery as I do now. It seems achieving reasonabley good vision at as late as 1 to 2 months is normal.

So the only thing I can do now is to wait. I hope the situation will be much improved by my next check up, which is scheduled on Feb. 19th.

Good luck to myself, and all the PRK patients out there. Tomorrow will be clearer.

What’s with the keyboard, Titus? November 14, 2006

Titus has developed an obsession to my laptop. The second I open up my laptop, he will jump on to the desk, sit on the keyboard and rub his head on the computer. I have to shut the door if I want to get any work done. I am not sure what makes the laptop so interesting to him. Is it because the flashing display? The beeping when he holds down a key? The warmer temperature? Or, the most possibly, just pissing me off? What makes it even more absurd is that he is not interested in a closed laptop at all.

Finally Titus and Siena stop hiding when I am in the room. Right now, I’m working on my laptop, they are playing by themselves. Even Siena doesn’t get scared by my slightest movement anymore.

sing the song of “Smurf”

repeat the words that he just said (to maximize the pissing off effects, try to use the same facial expression and tones as he did)

repeat murmuring something monotonely in low voice

when he wants your input, give him silience as feedback

keep whining about something, then when he gives suggestion, whine about the suggestion

keep singing/saying  the line of “black machine is a sex machine”

November is the month! Finally after seperating for about 10 months, we finally live back together. We both moved from the sunny southern California to the northern Cal.

It was a big change for both of us. But so far we both like it. Living apart makes us thankful to being around each other. We are pretty happy about the new townhouse we rented. It is home (if it would be warmer here) and cozy (if there would be more sunshine).

🙂 so we are not Faraway, except when we work.

Copied and pasted from J.P.’s original post –

In the five years the we spent together, for two and half years we were separated by either pacific ocean or the north america continental. Now I feel thankful that we are together. we might have to be apart far away again very soon. But we are alway so close.

It is private.

When people say “can I have some privacy”, it usually means that it’s some stuff that means nothing to others. Well, this place is where we publish our privacy.

We have always wanted to have a place where we can have a journal of our time together. What did we do? Where did we go? What did we eat? Things like that, things that no one else cares. But she has been busy, I have been busy, so we still don’t have this journal.

This monday, when I looked at the calendar and realized that the most important annual event is coming up next month, I had an idea. Why don’t I open a webolog account, put some nonsense, and give to her as a gift? We can use it as our journal book. It is a way better valentine gift idea than those items having been used for hundreds of years.
