    Someone. Somewhere. Has to have my immunization records... right?!

    Your mother.

    You could probably ask for your medical records, though, and simply track back to the pediatrician that started them.

    If nothing goes awry, I think I can have a car within 4, 5 months (there's other things I need to do on the way, like oh god I need new glasses).

    You do know that it's much, much cheaper to get glasses online? Especially if you take a strong prescription. I've been doing so for years and never had a bad experience.

    I need the exam, too. It's been a couple years. I may well buy the glasses themselves online after, but I have to go through the whole shebang. I'm just tired of squinting even when wearing 'em.

    I also need two pairs since I'm near & far-sighted. I want Gunnars again for computer/indoor use because oh man they are amazing. I never want to go to something else.



  • @auspice Or get progressive lenses. Personally, I don't like them but some do.

    I have progressives (the sun-changey-ones?) for my other pair of glasses. I think I'd prefer prescription sunglasses, tbh, but then I'd be on 3 pairs. 'Cause while I could get bifocals or some shit, that'd be a pain for gaming.



  • @auspice No, those aren't progressive. Progressive lenses are like bifocals. Except there's no line of delineation between far and near. Instead, it's more a gradual change from one to the other. There's also no visible line in the lens.

    Got an interview lined up tomorrow with an uncertain company. I think they're one of those who advertise for marketing and then it's a "whoops! Haha! We're actually in store sales teams!" but the job description doesn't list that and is a higher salary than those usually pay.

    So meh. They're only a couple miles from my apartment and it's a meet and greet sort of interview. So I'll hear it out.

    But! I also got contacted by a recruiter at Dell about a position on their Alienware / gaming team for social media management. Pay there would be almost twice what I'm making. So imma push for that one really hard.



  • @cobaltasaurus You can go get titers tests for immunizations. School records are destroyed after 6-7 years in most states. http://requestatest.com will let you order from LabCorp, which has testing sites all over the place. Just type in the disease and "titers" and it should come up as an immunization or titers test.

    I walked 24 miles in the past 4 days.

    Okay, so my left hip and left arch are killing me, and walking 3 miles a day in 80 degree heat may not have been the smartest idea, but I am not at all surprised at how much higher quality my sleep has been.

    On the other hand, my left leg and foot aches in a way that I'm not looking forward to dealing with in dress shoes.
