<derp>

If there are more and bigger pages plus 4x as many images in your .indd, your resulting .pdf is gonna be bigger. No amount of finagling will change that.

Please don't show me a 2-sided letter-sized sheet with a paltry 4 images and ask me to produce the same target .pdf size. *This* file is a poster with 20+ images, FFS.

Why don't you just believe me?Why the need to double check with your regular staffer (who is on vacation , BTW, and doesn't want to hear from your obsessive, controlling ass)? After all I've only been doing this since, oh, I don't know, about 1989.

Oh, and 1,000 kb is a MB. Please stop micromanaging and acting like you possess technical knowledge. I'm happy to oblige technical queries, of course, but I actually do know more than you. Please just give it up.

After more than a year, I FINALLY changed my nose screw! Frick it hurt to take it out, but it's nice to finally have one that fits!

Are you kidding me? You are pissed about that? Yep, you forget that I work too. Just because I do not drive to work and back home again does not change the freaking fact that I contribute equally to this household. You get pissed over the stupidest, silliest, dumbest things. It's f&*ked up. Please remember I am not a maid or yard boy.

This was SUCH a huge obstacle for me, too. I waited years before even trying contacts because I am so incredibly squeamish when it comes to my eyes that I thought I'd pass out trying to deal with them. I actually got them in at the Dr's, but getting them out that night was a different story. They normally have folks take them out too just to make sure they're ok with it, but it took me SO incredibly long to get them IN they gave me a pass and I knew DH could help me get them out. Literally...he had to help and took it out for me the first night because I got so frustrated. I think I was worried I'd hurt my eye and that coupled with my squeamishness of TOUCHING MY EYEBALL *gasp* kinda freaked me out.

That aside, I eventually (sorta) got the hang of it and there are different methods. From what I remember I did the type where you take thumb and third finger and sorta pinch to remove it. I think there is also the method of sweeping it out, but I never mastered that. I highly recommend looking at some tutorials online, trying a few different techniques and see what feels comfortable to you. I vaguely remember holding my eye open with one hand while removing the contact with the other because I always wanted to close mine as well.

Sorry my details are less than detailed, it's been about 7ish years since I wore them and about a year and a half ago had corrective surgery so I no longer need glasses. If you ever, ever get the urge to look into that I cannot express enough how glad I am I got over my freaked-out-about-eyeballs self and had it done.

I'm sure there are lots of contact wearers here and you could try starting a thread about it if you're having issues getting them in or out.

Are you adjusting "ghost glasses" on your face (I still find myself doing this)?
Thanks, I've been looking at tutorials for a while now. I tried to do the pinching thing but I failed miserably at that. I had to do the "slide the contact to the corner of your eye and somehow take it out" thing. I hope one day I'll be able to afford eye surgery, I really want it!

I'm going to give it another go tomorrow, hopefully it gets easier...If not I'll start a thread. I'm excited because if I get the hang of this it means I can wear sunglasses and see!
It will get easier. I use the 'pinch' method. I actually put one finger under my eye to hold it open (although it's funny, I probably do not even need to do that anymore but it's habit) and with my other hand I use my thumb and middle finger to pinch the contact. If your starts getting all weirded out putting some drops in and trying again may help. I have been wearing contacts for over 20 years and when I first got them I was a mess. My daughter tried a long time to get them and passed out when she tried to put them in at the doctors. She just ended up getting them again and she messed around with her eyes before she went to the appt-putting in drops etc because she thought her eyes would get used to it and she would get over her squeamishness. It seemed to work. She has had them about 4-5 months and it's going ok.

I don't care if you apologise to me in Spanish, English, French and Japanese. I am upset and we are done. It was fun, I will give you that.

OMG, that was unbelievably sweet. I hate you! :blush:

(Also, when he was singing, Willow remarked that she now remembered why she "had such a crush on him" - am I totally obtuse? I don't remember her exhibiting any crush-like behavior toward Giles, but maybe it's because she was way too obvious about Xander and I learned to expect that.)

^ LOL I should probably not assume that such a thing was a conscious character choice.

And my brother is ridiculously inconsiderate - my mom gave us a rule not to shower after 11 pm so as not to wake her up, and instead do it in the morning. This is not a hardship for either of us. And yet, here it is, 3:52 am, and I am failing at falling asleep and he is in the damn shower. She doesn't even get extra points for babying him for all these years, he just does whatever he pleases regardless of her discomfort. Sometimes I'm amazed at what a difference it makes being raised male or female in the same house: I was raised to consider the feelings of others without the added influence of the message that my needs are always most important as the Boy. No wonder he says such nasty privilege-steeped things.

I much prefer watching the slayer gang wonder how they'll take on the monster of the week to wondering how I can make myself stop caring how my flesh and blood chooses to represent my family (which has more to do with approaches to privilege than untimely showers, of course).

I just dropped my baby off at kindergarten. Actually I dropped him off 45 minutes ago, and I'm still crying. It wouldn't be so bad, but he has to do a full day today.

Thumbs down

No and you'll have to stop having expectations so you don't continue to be disappointed.
As I have learned, when I do this, things are much, much better, tho am having a hard time at this!

I can't tell: am I doing well though you're suddenly harder on me, or am I on the verge of being let go?

I think I need a present to lift my spirits, but I'm afraid of option two above.

U put my contacts on!!!! My right eye is far more twitchy than my left, so I have to put the left one on first. It took me about 10-15 min but I'm proud of myself

I'm sure it'll take longer to take these things off.

SiB - it really does get easier (and easy, eventually)


I'm not hurting. Anywhere! Pain-free is more exciting when it wasn't the case recently.
