New glasses

New glasses

I bought a new pair of glasses for the trip --- y'know, glasses I can actually appear in publicly, without feeling like I look like a total dork. I haven't really had a pair of glasses that wasn't for wear-at-home use in quite a few years.

Fortunately, Little Miss Drinkalot was on hand last week to play fashion consultant, as I tried something like 40 different pairs of spectacle frames. The shop assistant serving me got bonus points for her everlasting patience and energy, as she whipped out pair after pair for my evaluation.

I was tempted to get a pair of red-framed glasses too, but they were $300 for the frame alone. Crazy lah!

The other good news is that my prescription has gone down by 50 degrees for both eyes. Hurrah!

With this pair of spectacles, I imagine that you look like an Asian version of Lisa Loeb!

bowb > No idea? I wear contact lenses when I go out, but I know that in the last year or so, I've been spending more time at home and wearing my (old) glasses while working at the laptop. Not sure if/how that's helped!

James > Thank you. Now if only I had nice hair like her ...

Agagooga > I've never done an eye exercise of any variety in my life.
