sick in love

Today I picked up my new glasses.

This July, I'm going to be in Niagara Falls for a few days to attend a small blogger convention - the Blog Friends Festival. (Wanna come? Please come!) So, of course, I need great glasses and a haircut. (Yes, I'm aware that the haircut won't last until July. This way I can find something I love -and- bonus! figure out how to do it before I get there.)

I scored on the glasses.

My last pair was six years old. They were purchased right after the Harry Potter round specs fad finally went out, so they were rounded rectangular, a pinky-coppery metal, and designed so they didn't show up so much. Here. See? Unobtrusive.

Not so these. My new glasses are not shy. They are forward-thinking and opinionated, and if you ask, they will tell you what they think.
Or at least that's how I feel in them. Smart and sassy.

And I am sick in love with them. They are maroon. With bling. And curlicues. These are the first not-so-serious glasses I think I've ever had, and I love them. To the point of being gushy.

Bear smiled. 'I like your new glasses.' he said.

I launched into the Loving Of The Specs, Part One: 'Did you see the bling? On the sides? And they're red! And they make me feel smaht! And did you see the blinginess of them?'

He looked a little bewildered. 'Bling?"

I waved my hand at the side of my face. 'The crystals! On the temples! They look so cool!'
(Coming from a woman who is so indifferent about jewelry I often don't wear my wedding ring, this is a big change.)



Mine are maroon-red, and the bling on the side? Much blindier.

I smiled all day. Aren't they yummy?

They are beautiful. Truly. I once almost had myself convinced I needed glasses so that I might get to enjoy the pull-on-personality of whatever you choose. Alas, DAMNED 20/20! I had been alergic to the eye makeup I was wearing at the time. Your glasses say, "I am Me, get outta my way!" don't break them while rockin out in your car, dude.

I WANT NEW GLASSES. My DH just got some cool new hipster glasses. YOU just got some cool new hipster glasses. My glasses are at least 4 years old and I can't read street signs with them and I WANT SOME NEW ONES RIGHT NOW.

Ahem.

Ang - After I get A) the new haircut and B) new batteries for the camera. I tried last night but all I could get were vague reddish images - batteries are WAY low.

Snazzy specs! And Niagara Falls? There's an outside chance I could be there then! That's the Frozen North where my OC has his cave away from home!

Thanks for the "sorry". So strange that these words from someone I don't really "know" mean so much, but they do. thanks.

You're coming to BFF? You don't have to get all fancy for us, girl. God knows I won't be, gien how ginormous I'm likely to be by then... But then, Sandra is always gorgy, so there is that to deal with.
