Nerd Glasses

Sometimes you just need a good pair of nerd glasses.


After an interesting drive in the dark to Halloween Express for some blood spray and face crayons, I decided it was time to call my optometrist.

I'd like to mention that my optometrist is a little drop-happy. Drops for everything. The first drops numbed my eyes. SO WEIRD. So unpleasant. Then they poke you with this stick thinger. Why? I'm not sure. Then the dilating drops. Makes me look like one of those demons from Supernatural.


Anyway, turns out my eyes have mutually agreed to fail by two increments,* so I have to order new glasses. I get my glasses from ZenniOptical.com--lots of selection, great prices, and so far they haven't screwed anything up.

I am, of course, reordering my signature pink frames. But I've had this urge for a good pair of nerd glasses lately, so I'm ordering those as well (good excuse as any). Pictures to follow.**

*Fortunately for me I'm near-sighted and don't need correction for the computer, thus my writing shan't be disturbed during this traumatizing event.
**I'm a little antsy, given that I can't actually try these glasses on before I purchase them. But we shall see.

  4. Pink frame glasses look cute when they come with a thin frame, haha. I don’t find wearing glasses geeky or nerdy. Maybe some people think that wearing glasses get in the way of what they're doing, and that's why they opt to have a prescription contact lens instead. But I believe you can work with your glasses on. You just have to find a level of comfort while wearing them.
