It Is Done! @ 06:07 pm

Current Mood: crappy crappy


I was inspired by pervert_bitch


Hello,

Perrvy said: Go to
this site and pick 5 quotations that describe you or your belief system. Then tag 5 friends to do the same. The quotations are this site here.

So this is my contribution: 

  1. You're alive. Do something. The directive in life, the moral imperative was so uncomplicated. It could be expressed in single words, not complete sentences. It sounded like this: Look. Listen. Choose. Act.

                                                              i.      Barbara Hall, A Summons to New Orleans, 2000

 

 

  1. It's not true that life is one damn thing after another; it is one damn thing over and over.

                                                              i.      Edna St. Vincent Millay
US poet (1892 - 1950)

 

 

 

  1. Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.

                                                              i.      Abraham Lincoln, Lincoln's Own Stories
16th president of US (1809 - 1865)

 

 

  1. Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.

                                                              i.      Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
German dramatist, novelist, poet, & scientist (1749 - 1832)

 

 

  1. The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand.

                                                              i.      Frank Herbert
US science fiction novelist (1920 - 1986) 

 

And My friends are

randomjitter,   stasia,   and  courtaud

These are my adult friends, those that are younger than 21, may wait for a few years.

It’s not called LASIK @ 11:43 pm

Current Mood: bouncy bouncy

 

 

NO! It’s called ‘Total Wave Front’. And Why?

Because, my eyes were that bad!

 

I didn’t know that. I use to think that my vision was very good with glasses.

Huh! It wasn’t.

 

Any way…

Courtaud told me what to expect; and for that I’m very grateful.

Which means: I was not surprised to smell something burning, and keeping as still as a statue (which was rather difficult and exhausting) was expected. But I would not recommend anyone who wishes to undergo this kind of procedure to do both eyes in one day; it’s very exhausting. And although, the surgery only takes a few minutes it seemed to drag for hours.

 

My right eye was very poor (too myopic and astigmatic), so it took a long time to get fixed. I had to keep my sight focused on a spot of red light (which looked fuzzy), and not move. Both the doctor and nurse kept encouraging me all the time, and telling me what they’re doing, step by step. When they finally said it’s over; I wanted to sigh, but couldn’t because I still had to keep my sight on that spot, while the doctor cleaned my eye.

 

When that was done, they moved to the left eye. I asked them to give me a breather, they said that my breathing time was what it took for them to transfer the sheet covering my face and eye from left to right [in other word…SECONDS]. So you can imagine, that my left eye (though it took less than half the time it did for my right one) was not as easily worked upon as the other one; I tried so valiantly [*sniff*], to keep my focus, but easily got distracted. The nurse kept ‘shouting’ [not really ‘shouting’, more like speaking very loudly and irritably at me] to keep my focus on the red spot.

 

I TRIED.

 

I succeeded, eventually.

 

It was exhausting. Both physically and emotionally.

 

How could fifteen minutes tire me so! (OK! Maybe 20 min).

 

You see…I had to keep focus; else the procedure might fail. [The VERY expensive procedure which my mother paid for, would fail.]

 

Then, I was given these special goggles to wear, especially when sleeping, and two eye drops, which I had to apply once every 2 hours on the first day, the on the second once every 3 hours, and so on and so forth.

I was tired, from the trip to hospital; from the Valium pill they gave me before the operation (I took it on an empty stomach); from the procedure itself (I also developed a headache which concentrated itself between my eyes); and from the trip back home (I got car-sick again).

 

When I got home, I ate, took another pain killer (a nurse gave me one at hospital for my headache after a kind woman gave me a ‘mars’ bar to eat), and slept.

 

[My eyes were puffy, and I looked like a frog. All the time after surgery my eyes wouldn’t stop tearing, which was off course followed by a running nose.]

 

The next day; I had to go back to hospital for the 24-hours check, and thankfully, everything looked perfect. The doctor gave me additional drops to moisten my eyes and told me to come back in a week.

 

After a week, I went back and discovered that I had some dryness, which meant I had to buy a lubricant for my eyes.

 

I still have to buy decent colored glasses (my old ones were prescription), and be careful not to apply any pressure, and not to forget the eye drops (all three of them).

 

But it’s great to finally be able to see my face!

 

Oh! 
 

I have pretty eyes!

 

I’ve been told so by three people already…And family COUNTS!

Dark Mark and Voldemort. @ 08:09 pm



I have 2 questions, not exactly a theory, so you may all relax. 


If Voldemort was not actively calling his Death Eaters (DEs), will the Mark still be visible? 

______________________________________

I’m asking this because:

Some people like Malfoy were able to avoid Azkaban after Voldemort was first banished, by claiming that he was forced (by Imperius Curse maybe?). But can the course force Malfoy into taking the Mark?

If the mark does not fade entirely, why couldn’t the Ministry of Magic establish the identity of the DEs by checking the suspects’ forearms? Crouch JR, claimed his innocence, and not even Dumbledore was sure of his loyalties. 

_____________________________________

1. Doesn’t that mean that the Mark disappeared completely after Voldemort’s own disappearance? 

2. Or, is the Mark only visible when it’s being activated. 

__________________________________________


 

Warning:

Authors notes included. You, of course can ignore them.


A/N:

I know I've been monopolizing this community. Don't worry, next week you'll not see a single letter from me for about 2.5 weeks (if not even longer); so cheer up. Chin up. And wish me luck.


A/N2:

I want to thank all of you who took the time to read and comment on my previous essays. I also want to apologize for those of you who recently commented on a 2-week-old essay. I know I did not answer most of you, and those who I did answer; my replies were short and not entirely to do with your comments, or were wanting.

The fact of the matter is: I read the policy of this community and it says that one should check at least the last 2-3 weeks entries before submitting a theory, incase it already had been done. Which means that my piece was too old, and anyone had the right to approach the same subject and ask the same questions [and unfortunately, rarely anyone goes back and reads old essays]. I simply lost interest in the issue, and had no more wish to debate it as it is now. But if anyone has a new approach - and post a theory - on the subject, I will of course read it and agree/refute accordingly.

Why curiosity is not good for you. @ 12:07 pm


Today while I was returning home, I past the Catholic Church (it's on the way) and there were all these women dressed in black coming out! I thought; it's Thursday, I don't recall there are sermons on Thursdays. They're all in black, is someone dead? But they were all dry eyed; besides I didn't here of any deaths. Where were the men? At work probably. Why were all the women OLD?
Not finding answers and deciding that this sort of curiosity is childish, I decided to continue on my way.
Until that is I ran into more women on my way to the bus stop Hmm, curiouser and curiouser. Still I said nothing. I was standing next to the grocery store 'admiring' a watermelon, when one of those women (the ones in black) stood beside me, I believe admiring the tomato. I couldn't take it any more. I had to ask.
