The Deadline ...

I'm sure a lot of you are probably going to be happy that I'm working in a new office and though I do have some time to blog, I don't really have the time to write my usual long winded postings anymore. You can probably tell from my last two posts. They were pretty short ones, not the usual long ones where you would usually need to make a nice mug of coffee and a bowl of instant noodles first before settling down to read my posts ... LOL!

And by the time I get home I'm too tired and also too lazy to blog. I mean, I'd rather spend that time with wifey than sit here and write a long winded post. So, from now on my posts would probably be short ones ... yeah, you hope! LOL! I actually just got back home and the first thing I did was to log on and get into my blog. And it was not because I wanted to blog but it's because I HAVE to blog.

HAVE to blog? Now what in heaven's name is he talking about you might ask. Well, with my new job I can't sit in front of my PC all day and keeping an eye out for assignments. Yes, I still do assignments, the money's good, ok ... so wifey is helping me keep an eye out for them and she managed to book one for me. Unfortunately I only have like six hours to get it done or it expires. And that deadline is just around the corner. So, no choice but to blog before I can do anything else ... hehehe ...

And it's actually relates to something my boss and me were talking about just this morning. We're about the same age and we went to the same secondary school together years ago. He was complaining to me about how difficult it has become lately to read small prints and check colour separation films and such. And he's afraid that he has no choice but to go get his eyes check and maybe get a pair of eyeglasses. Sounds exactly like what I'm suffering from these days, bad eyesight!

As much as I hate wearing eye glasses, I have no choice but to join him soon and probably get a pair. I'm probably going to look like an idiot with a pair of eyeglasses on. And choosing the right kind of prescription eyeglasses to fit my ugly mug is going to be a problem. But it's a good thing I read about this site called Optical4less, an online store that offers fashionable eyeglasses cheap (yes, for me cheap is important, what with being a cheapskate and all ... LOL!).

The great thing about Optical4less is that they have a huge selection of eyeglasses such as tinted sunglasses, bifocal reading glasses, progressive reading eyeglasses, photochromic sunglasses and loads more from as low as $15! And you won't even have to go to a mall just to try them on to see if they'll fit you or not cos with their virtual try-on system, you don't even have to leave your chair. And to top it all off, their delivery is also pretty fast. It takes just about a week for it to arrive once you order them.

Shipping is absolutely free if you order more than one pair. And if you think this is just another one of those offers that's only for the US market, well, I've got news for you. They ship all the way to Malaysia so you and me can also buy from them and get our pair of eyeglasses delivered right to our doorstep even :D

Now, did I just say I was going to write shorter posts from now on? LOL! Hey, what to do. You can't blame me. You should have seen the amount of keywords I had to incorporate in this post! It wasn't easy especially when you just came home tired from work and haven't even had your, urrrmmm, 4th cup of coffee for the day ... hahaha ...

  7. Oops, no time for running now. I can empathise! I used to drink several cups of coffee and then wondered why I was getting chubbier. You got to watch the condensed milk in the coffee you know! It's good to know you're enjoying work but you really must be missing the chance to pop in at home for lunch. It's ok, you'll get into the swing of things soon. Most importantly, you must enjoy your work.

  15. I understand the lazy part.. after taking care of the hubby and running back home to take care of the kids, I just was really lazy to do anything online. I even let some assignments expire because I was just too tired. But of course, now that I'm rested again, I guess I'll be back to doing my assignments. hehee..

    after all, we all could use those extra-extra, right?
