Yesterday I got up early and drove to Salem to visit my aunt. One of my biggest reasons for going was to go by Binyons and find some prescription sunglasses. But once I picked out what I wanted, I found out that I had to have the physical prescription, not just a dictation. And of course I left the prescription at home. Damn it.

We also looked around Target and JoAnn Fabrics and met Grandma for some Indian buffet before we headed for home. And then we grabbed a saw Grandma needed and ran over to her house, where I cut two big branches off of a dead tree she has in her yard. It was really hot outside and I got covered in sawdust and pieces of pine needles.

Next my aunt and uncle and grandma and I went to McMinnville to Alf's, which is a weird little diner-y place that sells burgers and milkshakes and has a monkey in a cage. He had on little denim shorts.

And then I came home and looked for apartments, as evidenced by my frustrated post last night. There is no place advertised in the newspaper that takes dogs, is under $650/month, and is where we want to live. Sometimes I hate living in a college town.

Today I help Cory write his paper and then maybe we'll get to play for a bit. I don't know where though.

Binyon's is evil and corrupt and you should not spend your money there. They have crappy business ethics and are OK with managers changing time card and generall treating their employees like crap. You can get RxSun from Lenscrafters right now starting at $110 and they are not evil.

Just my two cents.

I will definitely look there next time I look. The only reason I didn't was because my aunt was driving, and she said "Lenscrafters is too expensive, you must look at Binyons."

Just out of curiosity, when they start at $110 that means just the frames, right? How much does it cost to put the lenses in?

Nope, frame and lens. If you want polarized with thsoe frame they're about 180, I think. We have 100$ off the complete pair right now. Plain and simple. Plus, Binyon's sucks. Oops, sorry-already mentioned that. :)
