April 27 07

you get up. you walk into the bathroom. you reach for your contact case.

and then you see it…sitting right beside your contact case…is your contact…well, the raisin version. all shriveled and pruny and dried up. clearly, it had spent the night dehydrating on the coutertop instead of swimming in the solution pool.

so, panicking realizing that you have to go to work, do you:

a) toss the contact, even though it’s your last pair, and wear your glasses, even though those are not fit to be seen by humans. i mean, those suckers went out of style well before my 6-year-old was born. and they are missing one of those nose pad doohickey thing…so they are crooked and unconfortable.

b) wear nothing and pretend that you can see. in other words, wing it. live life blind until you can get a new pair.

or, would you do what i did

c) lift it up, drop it in your case, come back twenty minutes later. stick it in your eye. and head off to work.

clearly, i’m a masochist.

wow…some people are sooo impatient…ahem…sci-fi dad….it was coming…i do have to work sometimes, ya know!!!

Grey’s Anatomy

~anyone else want some cake now? mmm…red velvet. i thought Burke and Cristina were adorable AND convincing this week. i’m so loving them. this cake. for this day. for this woman. ah…

~ who else got the chills when Dawson Leery’s mom said “the wife always knows”?? creeeepy.

~I’m back on the selfish Derek hate-train. what a freakin’ prick.

~surprisingly, my favorite of the night? McSteamy! oh, and Bailey. i love a woman who owns up to her mistakes. she’s awesome. still rawkin’ my socks.

~there’s nothing more exciting than a man with a penis-fish. i think George and Derek and Alex could each use a little penis-fish of their own…

~i was mentally ready to finally accept an Alex/Addison relationship…so, you go out and give me the steamy sex (awesome!) and then you allow Alex and do and screw it all up. bah. shonda. you mock me!

~best exchange of the night: “You’re not in the gossip” “because no one ever tells me anything” “I slept with a married man” “i don’t mind that no one ever tells me anything”

  1. I do c as well, at least once a month 😉

  2. if I wore contacts, I’d probably do c. But is that ok for your eye?
    guess you’ll know by the end of the day 🙂

    Comment by Sarah on April 27, 2007
  3. c totally. Done it. Many times.
    You must get updated glasses Alice…tee hee

  4. can’t touch my eye, so c) is definitely out for me.

    disappointed to come here and find no Grey’s talk…

    Comment by SciFi Dad on April 27, 2007
  5. La la la la, I can’t hear you on the Grey’s stuff! I haven’t watched it yet.

    And I was thinking C before you even gave me the options. LOL

    Comment by Chantal on April 27, 2007
  6. thanks, Ali.

    I think it’s safe to say openly that Addison is leaving Seattle for LA next week, the start of her spin-off for next fall. That’s why they tied up both romantic loose ends (Alex being Alex, McSteamy being surprisingly gallant in falling on the sword so she never knows he knew about Alex).

    My favourite line: “There’s always something wrong between you and Derek.” So true, so true.

    Oh, and am I the only one who caught that brief glimpse of the chairman’s package when he dropped trou?

  7. THANK YOU! It was bugging me that I couldn’t figure out who the actress was. Dawson Leary’s mom, of course!

    Comment by Jamie on April 27, 2007
  8. Definitely c.
    Though I have to admit that I do wear my glasses when I’m feeling lazy.
    And, I have been known to call the place where I get my contacts from and beg for a single day pair. They are very nice and give them to me for free. (and, even let me sit in their “practice room” and put them in)

    Comment by Laural on April 27, 2007
  9. I’d have done the same thing with the contact lens. I have done the same thing. I got lasiks three years ago, best thing evah!

    Comment by RLGelber on April 27, 2007
  10. best Grey’s line of the night was the only one that actually got me to look up from my laptop:
    “I’m unbuttoning my shirt now.”

    Comment by Giblet on April 27, 2007
  11. I would have done what you did….

    Comment by crazymumma on April 27, 2007
  12. I do c on a semi-regular basis…

    Comment by Stacie on April 27, 2007
  13. Where’s the Survivor talk? Am I the only one who thinks it’s finally getting interesting?

    Comment by mamatulip on April 27, 2007
  14. i hate anything in my eyes.i freak if i even get an eyelash in my eye.so i would definitely not be putting something in my eye.

    Comment by LAVENDULA on April 27, 2007
  15. I would’ve done c also. Back when I had contacts. Thank you LASIK!

    And I have completely forgotten my favorite quote from last night, for some reason it has escaped me. Something something something beeyotch. All I can remember is the beeyotch.

    Comment by Sadie on April 27, 2007
  16. my eyes hurt just reading that. i want to just rub them raw now. yuck…

    Comment by lara on April 27, 2007
  17. “C” no question. Been there, done that – now considering laser surgery!

    Comment by JennV on April 27, 2007
  18. Loved Grey’s last night!
    Those cakes made me crave cake!
    I wore contacts a LONG time ago–they irritated my eyes, I would hate to think about what they would do to my eyes if I let them shrivel up and then rehydrate. If it works for you–you go girl!

    Comment by Multi-tasking Mommy on April 27, 2007
  19. Dude. No wonder I couldn’t find my favorite quote on any of the GA websites. It was from The Office.

    Disgruntled Customer: [storms out angry] I’m calling the Better Business Bureau!

    Michael: Yeah? Well I’m calling the “Ungrateful Beeyotch Hotline”!

    Comment by Sadie on April 27, 2007
  20. I did c many a time before I had my eyes all lasered up.

    Comment by Beth on April 27, 2007
  21. If I wore contacts, I’d probably definitely do c. 😉 I loved Grey’s last night. I’d actually heard about the penis fish. My dad went fishing in the Amazon a few months ago, and they warned him not to pee in it when he went swimming!!!

    Comment by Haley-O on April 27, 2007
  22. I definitely have done C with the contacts more than once. But I also have done D, which is wear only one contact (which is not the brightest solution since I’m blind as a bat without my contacts or glasses…)

    Comment by Nancy on April 27, 2007
  23. C for sure!
    I wasn’t really liking the McDreamy scene at the end with Meredith…I know she has issues and all, but why is he being like that? I’m over the “you didn’t swim” crap! She freakin came back to life! Come on!

    Comment by FENICLE on April 27, 2007
  24. Did anyone else think the whole point was you can’t have your cake and eat it too?

    Comment by Di on April 27, 2007
  25. sci fi dad: it wasn’t the chairman’s package, it ws the chairman’s head dropping down to look at his package. i know because i was initially shocked that they would show “the boys” on tv and so i rewound it and played in slow mo.

    thank you ali for the dawson’s mom reference, i couldn’t remember where i knew her from! now that she’s probably divorcing her fishy-penis husband, maybe she can fly from seattle grace down to LA and de-program joey.

    Comment by amy on April 28, 2007
  26. I wanna know if C really works, can you make contacts come back lol

    what is up with derrick anyway sheesh

    Comment by Anne on April 28, 2007
  27. I admit that I just entered the land of Grey’s Anatomy. My fiance just bought me season 1 and now I am on episode 1 of season 2. Believe it or not, I am not even tempted to watch on Thursday night. I love your show updates, it makes me look forward to what is yet to come.

    Comment by Keri on April 29, 2007
  28. Seeing as how I have done C. I choose C.

    Comment by Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah on April 30, 2007
  29. So, Grey’s Anatomy, since I kinda slammed it on my site this morning. How is it that Burke is now an appealing character and George is just pissing me off? And McDreamy is so going to throw McSkinny under the bus.

    Comment by Chris on April 30, 2007
