It's kind of ironic that the spare glasses my dad got made for me are actually now here before the ones I ordered from the optometry clinic...the degree-ness is a bit off (things are not clear) but they are still here before lol. the pair from the grafton clinic had better be frigging super-perfect because not only are they

1) NOT CHEAP like everyone tells me ( i balk at the thought of what a regular optometrist would have charged if $600 is cheap)
2) LATE super super late they told me 2 weeks and now I'm not getting them until the 3-4th of June.

So yeah. They had best be incredible.

I am thinking of seeing if I can get contacts for harry potter day. cause then i can actually wear the iconic harry glasses. although in the bookcover recently his rims aren't as black or thick. but they are still round. hmm. and apaprently i have to start at 6 that day LOL YAY FUNTIME

Sylvia Park Stage IV

Things to note:

ANZ and National Bank have branches right next to each other. Their slogans are sinisterly similar (Come in. Sit Down vs Come on in, we'd like to get to know you.)
You can now walk to Pak'n'Save without being rained on!
THERE IS NOW A FUCKING POST OFFICE YAY so when people ask me when I'm working I can be like yeah fo'sure get ur ass into PaperPlus
PaperPlus is open. Honestly, I don't think they will be much competition if any. Seriously you should walk into their store and then into ours

and then theirs

then ours

and it will be painfully obvious, if it wasn't the first time. I am almost certain we have more travel books than they have books, full stop.

Oh yeah i was dressed as harry potter for a bit today handing out flyers and stuff and holy crap it's a lot harder than it looks. the worst thing is when people take a flyer and throw it away in your face. they dont even have to courtesy to wait till i can't see them? cuntstick and yeah anyway i was walking up and down the mall and i got told off by security and it was like borders vs sylvia park

and i think borders won woo cause i managed to buy time by looking confused so the dude was just like ok keep handing them out for now, but i'll comeback

(sorry to security guard you're just doing ur job im just doing mine)

did i mention i fuckin hate sylvia park? its funny you'd think they'd let all their staff park at sylvia park but no apparently you have to pay for that. so now our staff parking free bit has been
moved so its not even in sylvia park again. at least its close

but its still a pain in the butt and they leave stupid bitchy flyer handout things under my windscreen wipers

and those fucking fat poly bitches who ride on those damn scooter things SLOWER THAN PEOPLE WALK down the mall

like wth

get off and walk you lazy cow you'd be faster

back to stage IV....

there's an interesting cafe/chocolate place to complement that boiled sweets place which was awesome and im so glad they had good business today they looked real busy like cause before they were in that little offshoot bit of stage 3 which people hardly go to but today was awesome so i hope it keeps up for them YAY GO THEM

oh yeah paper plus sucks did i mention lol such a depressing book store

i bet their borders shortlist equivalent, the e-club, is just as shit lol

yeah i know be fair to competitors etc

but honestly lol i can't not look at the store and laugh


ok so yeah stage IV really isnt that big but theres many banks many


lol i was sold on subway

Teas Willis, and the sticky tours
Did gym and Gibbs in the wake.
All mimes were the borrowers,
And the moderate Belgrade.

"Beware the tablespoon my son,
The teeth that bite, the Claus that catch.
Beware the Subjects bird, and shred
The serious Bandwidth!"

He took his Verbal sword in hand:
Long time the monitors fog he sought,
So rested he by the Tumbled tree,
And stood a while in thought.

And as in selfish thought he stood,
The tablespoon, with eyes of Flame,
Came stifling through the trigger wood,
And troubled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and though,
The Verbal blade went thicker shade.
He left it dead, and with its head,
He went gambling back.

"And host Thai slash the tablespoon?
Come to my arms my bearish boy.
Oh various day! Cartoon! Cathay!"
He charted in his joy.

Teas Willis, and the sticky tours
Did gym and Gibbs in the wake.
All mimes were the borrowers,
And the moderate Belgrade.

kiwifruit muffins are surprisingly freshingre.

So yeah. Glasses. I went to the Optometry clinic in city because apparently its cheaper than Visique or OPSM, was gonna go to the Tamaki one but fully booked and I wanted new glasses ASAP. well;

1) Doesnt matter how fast I try i can't get my glasses in time for my first two exams...
2) jeez they did a lot of testing with my eyes lol, sure was $40 worth of testing. So much rubbish like yellow dye solution in my eye so they can look at the surface and also stuff like anaesthetic drops so they could measure the eye pressure (!!) and there was this funky blue/yellow light instrument, and a whoooole lot of testing and arrows and letters oh so many letters
3) I am not colour blind.
4) it turns out my current pair of glasses are too strong. I think it's something like ~6.25 atm and I am getting a pair of 5.75s. -, of course, because I am short sighted. myopic. yeah.
5) I have mild astigmatism. i cannot remember whether it's vertical or horizontal.
6) apparently i have a good case to use contacts because of the moderate (lol, yeah right its moderate more like blind) degree of visual impairment and other things like that i cant remember all the reasons but the student's supervisor sure made a believer out of me
7) GLASSES ARE EXPENSIVE. Holy crap I do not want to imagine what OPSM or Visique would have charged me, if UoA is cheap :\ The lenses alone cost more than $350 bucks :( then again I am very blind and they are cooly coated with all sorts of stuff like anti-reflection/glare and blahblahblah. and their cheap <$75 frames all looked silly. >.> I have converse frames lol no they were not cheap but at least they look good.

so like i will be doing 2 exams with lopsided glasses YAY

The usefulness of cows
Economic Models explained with cows:


You have 2 cows.
You give one to your neighbour.


You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and gives you some milk.


You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and sells you some milk.


You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and shoots you.


You have 2 cows.
The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and then throws the milk away...


You have two cows.
You sell one and buy a bull.
Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows.
You sell them and retire on the income.


You have two giraffes.
The government requires you to take harmonica lessons


You have two cows.
You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.
Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow has dropped dead.


You have two cows.
You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of
credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity
swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back,
with a tax exemption for five cows.

The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a
Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells
the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company.

The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more.
You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States, leaving you with nine cows.

No balance sheet provided with the release.

The public then buys your bull.


You have two cows.
You shred them.


You have two cows.
You go on strike, organise a riot, and block the roads, because you want three cows.


You have two cows.
You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and
produce twenty times the milk.

You then create a clever cow cartoon image called 'Cowkimon' and market it worldwide.


You have two cows.
You re-engineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.


You have two cows, but you don't know where they are.
You decide to have lunch.


You have two cows.
You count them and learn you have five cows.
You count them again and learn you have 42 cows.
You count them again and learn you have 2 cows.
You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.


You have 5000 cows. None of them belong to you.
You charge the owners for storing them.


You have two cows.
You have 300 people milking them.
You claim that you have full employment, and high bovine productivity.
You arrest the newsman who reported the real situation.


You have two cows.
You worship them.


You have two cows.
Both are mad.


Everyone thinks you have lots of cows.
You tell them that you have none.
No-one believes you, so they bomb the **** out of you and invade your country.
You still have no cows, but at least now you are part of a Democracy....


You have two cows.
The one on the left looks very attractive.


You have two cows.
Business seems pretty good.
You close the office and go for a few beers to celebrate.
