I can still remember the day that my parents caught me out not being able to read the clock from across the room. Since that time (age 10) my glasses and I have been constant companions. First thing on in the morning, last thing off at night. The change to "progressive" lenses was a little depressing, though, I have to admit. The Beloved needs her glasses all the time, too, but won't wear them. She looks great in her glasses, but she can't get over the hump. I don't get it. I think most women look great in glasses. I think it conveys confidence to wear them, but maybe that's a viewer-versus-viewee thing.

Great post. I feel very similarly about the first start-up that I worked for. It has become the yardstick against which all other work experiences are judged. And no, we didn't create a thing of value. I've been at it again for the past couple of years -- and maybe because I'm a founder and not a joiner, or maybe it's just the time or the fact that I'm older -- it's still fun, but it's not the same. Or maybe it's because we don't have a jacuzzi. Yet.

When She Who Must Not Be Named and I split, I realized there was a whole section of people that had been in our lives who were going to get "her" story and believe it. It used to drive me crazy thinking there would be a whole set of people to whom my name is dirt because they were fed half-truths and outright lies. In the end, there was nothing I could do about it and I've sort of realized as much as it stinks, I'm going to be dirt to those people.

I tell ya, when I read that yesterday, I was very glad to have gone the wp route. It didn't give me a good feeling about TypePad and the remains of SA.

Very good! I completely agree about "this is not a restaurant". I try to be of the "I'll try anything once" camp. Sweetbreads? Yes. Menudo? ok. Kangaroo? Yum. Haggis? No. On Sunday, we were over to friends' for dinner and he produced a product that a friend had brought back for him from the World Cup. A black and white striped can of zebra-pate'. It was left in the can.

I could sign in with my wordpress ID with no's in the drop-tag under "more" places to sign in. Easy peasy.

I don't think that's strange -- when She Who Must Not Be Named and I split, the anxiety leading up to the split was much worse than the post-split reality. Making the decision was the really hard part.
Burned bacon makes me sad... but your process of self-discovery (even the hard parts) makes me happy.
I definitely agree! I took up piano a couple of years ago and it's like a whole different part of my brain gets engaged while I'm playing. Ditto for activities that keep you thinking! Good list.
