New Specs

On December 30, a sad and tragic event occurred. While I was gently buffing my glasses with a microfiber cleansing cloth, they broke. Snapped right across the bridge of the nose. I was in a hurry to go shopping, so I found myself frantically trying to fix them. See, they were the only pair of classes I had, and I can't see without my glasses. I ended up fastening a band-aid around the center, as it was the only adhesive I could get to work. Mr. Cool managed to super-glue them together, and they lasted until yesterday, when once again they snapped.

Mr. Cool insists that I should take a picture of my band-aided black plastic specs and do a compare and contrast. I say, no. No picture of that nerdtacular sight will ever be taken or published. Instead, you must make do with a quick snap of my new pair, although the dark blue color didn't quite transfer to the camera. I like them quite a lot, but most of all, I like being able to see without a band-aid bridge sliding down my nose.

Do they have some sort of pattern on the side? They look very cool (Quite Cool, actually), and you've achieved an amazing effect with that right eye :)

Whew, glad this crisis has past. Sorry about bad eyes. A word for those of us with bad vision - redundant (back-up specs). They look Quite Cool - maybe Ari Onassis.

Yeah, there is sort've a tapestry pattern on the side. A bit French/Moroccan, I think. Thanks for the compliments--and I will be getting back-up glasses!
