Well, I fangirl Penelope Garcia of Criminal Minds to the point of...well...possibly unhealthy proportions. =P I named a Pullip after her. And now? Now my face shall pay homage to her geek chic-ness. I'm not sure if I could ever pull off her adorkable quirkiness, but at least my face is giving it a fair shot. =P

I had a sort of epiphany last night whilst knitting one of the last rows of the main body of the Shawl of Doom. After taking some ib's after a mild headache from watching a movie, I settled down in bed to knit happily away, only to discover that my mild headache went from mild to blistering as I focused on what I was doing. And it hit me. Maybe it's not just fate or life or the universe that hates me and requires me to be in pain and miserable for it's amusement. No. Maybe, and this was as much a revelation for me as I'm sure it'll be for you all, maybe...it's my eyes. O.O Now, I haven't had an eye exam for at least 15 years. Probably closer to 17 or 18 really. I called up the Costco optical department this morning, and got an appointment for 11:20 today. Went in, had the doc peek into mah peepers, and discovered...I need glassses for things close up. My long distance vision is spectacular, he says, but close up things are making my eyes strained and unable to focus properly. So, mom and I grabbed my prescript, took over to the frames department, and looked for a pair of suitably geek chic glasses. They are so cute, y'all! All square and adorkable. Called Aztec Rose black/pink. I HAVE (sorta) PINK GLASSES. Have to wait around 2 weeks to get them, and my head is still killin' me, but there's, hopefully, a light at the end of the tunnel that isn't, in fact, an oncoming train. =P

I had already shut down Vimes, my laptop, for the night a couple of hours ago...

...but I had to log back on. The Shawl of Doom? Which has been mocking me daily for over 3 years now? I HAVE FINISHED THE MAIN BODY OF IT. o.o Like... I even started the first little point on the bottom edge. Despite eye strain and new glasses and headaches and hurty eyes and some seriously Olympic-level procrastination... I HAVE PREVAILED. (Well, you know. Sorta. =P)

Pictures to follow. HEE. ♥
