Here's me with my new glasses.

In kind of a lousy mood, even though I did well today and got a lot done, because I've put myself in danger of overdrawing my account. Either that or bouncing my rent check -- and neither of those is a good thing. Amazon.com said my FFVI shipment was going to be delayed, so I decided if I found a copy at the mall, I'd buy that and then cancel when I got home. Found it, bought it, then when I got home, the Amazon.com copy had been shipped. Argh.

Apparently I can just refuse the shipment and I'll get a full refund, but that'll take a while to go through, and for now I'm $11 short of the rent payment, which my landlord apparently hasn't cashed yet. So if I can get $11 into my account before he cashes it, I'm good. Otherwise, it's either going to overdraw or bounce, and -- obviously -- I don't want either of those to happen. Well, all I can do is wait for my brother to get in touch with me; he owes me some money, and if we meet up quickly enough I can deposit it tomorrow.

Well, other than that, it's been a good day, so hopefully I can get it taken care of and then enjoy the rest of my time off.

1) Got new glasses! Up close there's not much difference, but at a distance things look a lot sharper now.
2) Got Final Fantasy VI Advance! I'm already to the river-rafting section.
3) Got the laundry finished, including a bunch of T-shirts that've been packed up since I moved into my last apartment.
4) Got some new light bulbs for the previously-burnt-out light in my kitchen.
5) Mom's promised to mail me a check in the morning -- she's covering the cost of the glasses, plus giving me some money to spend on myself for my birthday.

...and I just remembered, in two weeks I'm going to be 23. Whoa.

Looking sexy. *nods sagely*

And yay on FFVI. I never have actually beaten that game... I always get through the world of Ruin, then stop, before I've gotten everyone back.

(And aside: Thanks again for the piece of webspace. It helps to have a place to put my projects so my friends can see them and help give me tips and such.)

Re: black jeans
If you can find them, Carhartt makes the best jeans you'll ever find. They have a special pair of work jeans that have a double front that's supposed to be for a kneeling pad insert, but works wonderfully for an extra layer so the pants don't wear through as fast. Plus they're extremely well made.
