A few weeks ago, Kman ordered tickets to a sneak peek of Indie Game: The Movie, a documentary that chronicles the lives/game submissions of three independent video game developers. He had been super psyched to see it since he’s actively pursuing a career as an indie game developer himself!
I get out of work a bit earlier than he does, so I took advantage of the extra time and walked over the Brooklyn Bridge to meet him near his office. I immediately regretted that decision though, because 99% of people do not know how to walk properly. Stopping for no reason. Not walking in a straight line. Walking soooooooooo slowly. Taking up the entire pedestrian area. Oy vey!
But it was all worth it because I saw someone on stilts dressed up in head to toe camouflage (I think?) walking the bridge.
We met up and headed up to the IFC Center to catch the 7:30 showing. However, about 45 minutes into the movie, my right eye started to drive me crazy! I wear contacts, and realized that it’s probably been a month since I changed them…they’re two week disposable ones. Oops!
Finally, I couldn’t stand it anymore and removed my right contact and dropped it on the floor. Desperate times call for desperate measures!
Now would also be a good time to mention that without contacts or glasses I am COMPLETELY blind. Like, can only read a sign if it’s in front of my face kinda bad vision. For you contact wearers out there, my prescription is -4.5.
After trying (and failing…my depth perception going down stairs was beyond messed up) to manage with just one contact in, I removed the left one as well. Thank God that Kman was with me, because I honestly don’t think I would have been able to get around! I was like Mr. Magoo walking around the streets of NYC.
After the movie, Kman led me through the crowded West Village streets to our quickie dinner destination: Joe’s Pizza. Thankfully, they only had cheese slices available, so I didn’t have to have the menu read to me. I also over peppered my pizza because I couldn’t tell how much I was sprinkling on without shoving my face down to inspect!
Great slices. YUM!
Then it was time to head home! I was psyched to put my glasses on and no longer rely on my seeing eye boyfriend to escort me around.
Some living room rearranging happened (it is a HUGE improvement!) along with some other random unpacking. We’re having three people stay at our apartment tonight in order to avoid a treacherous commute to the Brooklyn Half at 5AM tomorrow, so I wanted things looking relatively tidy.
I slept in a little late this morning to make up for my midnight bedtime, so I had to eat breakfast at work. I packed some oatmeal, and used natural peanut butter and almond milk that we had in the fridge, along with some chia seeds that I keep on my desk!
And the name of the game today is HYDRATION! It’s supposed to be pretty hot out for the race tomorrow, so I’m making sure that I drink oodles of water today.
Oh, and I’m clearly wearing my glasses today because I have no idea where I packed my boxes of contacts. I should probably find those tonight for the run tomorrow…eek!
