Post 4th of July

Thursday July 5th, 2012 at 1:54 pm

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! :) Mine was expensive, but very enjoyable. The 4th of July is also my dad’s birthday. I treated him and my mom to dinner at P.F. Chang’s and had a great time. P.F. Chang’s has this Asian Pear Mojito that I’ve come to love, I blame my dad for introducing me to it. Originally, we wanted to eat Korean BBQ but we ended up leaving the house a bit early and the restaurant wasn’t open. It was a bit disappointing, I haven’t had bulgogi in a while!

This week has been hectic, my lack of sleep over the past several days is finally taking its toll on me. The heat doesn’t help either. I swear everyday has been over a hundred degrees, if not close to it. I want to announce the giveaway winner before the weekend but I first have to sort through all of the entries. I’ll do a little bit of it after the blog post while I’m still on my lunch break but I probably won’t finish until tonight or tomorrow.

I’m very sorry for the delay. With everything going on this week, I’ve hardly been home much except to sleep. I keep meaning to clean the apartment before we have friends over Sunday to watch the UFC fight I’ll be DVR’ing on Saturday and can’t even find time for that ._.

My friend is in town for this week and is working on a short martial arts film, which I’ve been spending most of my free time working on. It’s been so much fun and I can’t wait to see the final result. I would love to do more projects like this in the future, hopefully when I get better martial arts and choreography skills ;) I’ve got one more fight to film I think on Friday and that’s it for me.

I’ve been very happy to find some contact lens sellers that have contacts for my eyesight. It’s surprising since my eyesight is horrible and I didn’t know some of the prescriptions went that deep. My selections are VERY limited however, but I’ve been able to find a couple that I like. Hopefully, I can find some more sellers.

It’s been annoying trying to get my eye exam records though, so I know what prescriptions to order my contacts in. Normally, I have no problems with the institution that I went to go get my LASIK exam done at, which is why it is always my first go to choice when it comes to anything medical. However, trying to get my records has been anything but pleasant. I spent all day Tuesday, at work, trying to fax over a copy of my release forms. It could never get through. I think by the end of the day, I had tried over 15 times. I called and the lady on the phone, in her “I don’t give a fuck about anything” tone, just told me that the machines are busy and for me to keep trying.

I tried and tried..and continued to do so today until I finally decided that this is stupid. I called again and got the same lady who would not answer my questions at all! I had to ask her several times if there was another way for me to send it in. She kept trying to tell me that the machines are busy. 1) That does not answer my question and 2) I know the machines are busy. Out of my 20+ confirmation pages, they all tell me that it’s busy. I don’t need her to tell me 3 times. She finally let me know I can mail it in, which I have no problem with. It will get there sooner than a fax….

It takes a lot for me to become irritated over the phone with someone. I was irritated with her, she was irritated with me. I honestly do not care, why bother doing a job that you can’t even do. She has not been helpful both times I’ve called her and the problem could have been quickly solved. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think it’s very hard to help someone find a solution if one method is clearly not working. Telling me things I already know does not get us anywhere. I honestly do not mind resending a fax multiple times, but unfortunately, I do have work to do.

I need to go shopping sometime soon, even though I have no money. I need a new wardrobe and some accessories would be nice ;) I wish I had better luck finding what I want online.
