This page really whips the llama's ass.

The price of SRS and accommodation at Dr Brassard in 2005 for an American was roughly 17k. Now you get the joke.

I honestly have no idea what Lexi said to Vic. After finishing this week's pages I immediately started writing again to see if I could find out what it was, but after like five pages, I couldn't get it. So it is a mystery and I REALLY want to know!

@GreenKrog: I take it you're a fan of WinAmp (or at least was one before it disappeared).

Stupid idea: relocate the party to Vancouver... (well, it would certainly make the celebration even more different to previous years! If only someone could fly in Sophie as well...)

@mittfh: I may or may not have kept an installer on a flash drive just in case I ever need to format and lose the original install. I may or may not have done that.

@GreenKrog: I think that's a lot more expensive than it was when I was there in 1999...

@sunspark: I am disappointed with how hard it is to find price structures about these things. Same as it was when I got lazer eye surgery last year, there is a level of obfuscation that is frustrating as hell. I can only assume that because there are so few surgeons, they don't need to have any sort of a competitive setup, but it sure makes planning a shot in the dark for some people.

At least the majority of male surgeries can be looked up (short of actual penile creation).

LASIK

You and I seem to have had all of the same procedures. Wasn't it amazing to wake up in the morning and...SEE? :-)

@sunspark: Uh.. the Lasik I had was the kind where they burn off as much of my eyes as they possibly can. I was in horrendous pain for three days, slipping in and out of conciousness with only enough time to take drugs and painkillers and going back to sleep.

After a few weeks though, hell yes it is amazing! I can see in the shower! I can go hiking and not sweat up my glasses! I went swimming and got to look at pretty ladies! Don't get me wrong, GRS was great, but Lasik is just ridiculous!

OMG!

Whoa! That sounds horrible! I mean the end results sound great, but...still...was there something really unusual about your retinas that they had to do such a violent procedure?

@sunspark: My optical issues are (were) nearly as bad as my mental health issues. One eye was 7.5 with 1.25 astigmatism, the other 7.25 with 1.75 astigmatism. They had to take off the maximum amount possible. I also had a fancy scar on one eye from wearing contacts.
Ironically, I got the scar from wearing said contacts after going to see Dr Warneke in Edmonton and being told that my SRS wouldn't be approved for 1+ years, and that the therapist I had previously been to was essentially pointless. I cried for the three hour trip home and couldn't take out the contacts. Good times.
