FAILED DMV EYE TEST, SAW "LES MIZ" MOVIE AGAIN & MORE

Tuesday, January 08, 2013


Having Allen's car and my license due to be renewed by March 1, 2013, I decided to go up to the Department of Motor Vehicles office and, yes, as the subject line says, I failed the eye test. I have been having problems with my eyes the past few months and I know the cataracts are growing as things are getting blurry plus it is hard fro me to read any writing on TV. In any case I went to my eye doctor, he filled out a paper, went back to the DMV and got my license. They must know something I don't as it is valid until 2021 when I will be 85. Oh yes, I do have to submit a new eye test in 3 years.

***** Not that I am counting but I have the car for 41 hours more.

***** I read this recently and since I have basically said the same thing here is someone else who feels like I do;

"My identity for the past 39 years (mine has been 65 years) has been as a gay man. That identity dictates everything, not just who I marry (I won't be doing that) but where I travel, where I eat, what products I buy, and certainly what political party I align with. I don't identify primarily as white or male or as a Buddhist (Jewish). I dance in the kitchen after Thanksgiving dinner with gay people ( No, I don't)."

I went to see the movie version of "Les Miserables" for the second time and enjoyed it even more. I feel the critics have really dumped on Russell Crowe-- he may not be the best singer ever but he acts the heck out of the part. And yes, I cried and cried! I am sure I will see it again before I see the touring production on February 26 to see what the differences are as I have been severely chastised at allthatchat for not knowing a song was switched there or a word eliminated here. All I know is I sat back and really got into the film and enjoyed it!

    Thanks for the review for Les Miz. I was going to wait to see it on Netflix. Maybe worth going to see in the theater.
