My appointment's on Wednesday morning, 10:30 am. It's costing me $4K, but all the young people I know who've done it say it's worth it.

(At Velvet Underground last week)

Pooja: But I like your glasses. Wait, take them off. (Pause) Yeah, go for LASIK.

This is me today:

This is me tomorrow:

Or if something goes wrong, this is me tomorrow:

And just to freak you guys out, here's a video:

Wish me luck!

And I thought sleeping with your contact lenses still in was bad... thank you for reaffirming my decision to keep my eyes whole, pure, and flawed.

But I really wish you happier, sexier times without glasses. I'd still make passes at the old Yish, but that's me.

Thanks guys... come to think of it, I rather doubt my life will become dramatically happier and sexier because of the op (if I'd done it before college, then yeah, maybe). Still, it's something I've wanted to do for a while, and it's a safe procedure, so let's do it.

I don't think I will be able to recognise you after your surgery, but good luck anyway...
