don't make a spectacle

Hooray! My glasses came in today. I hopped in the car and went to pick them up sporting Josh's prescription sunglasses (we have an almost identical prescription and I could wear them without any issues like they were my own). The lab sent the glasses over without putting in the lenses so I had to wait for the optician to do that. Then a minor adjustment and I was walking out the door with my new specs. Here's a picture of them. *Special prize to the one who can tell me whose blog I'm reading in the background there.

As promised, here is a picture of me in said glasses (well, my eyes at least). I didn't paint any of it in, just desaturated everything but my eyes and the glasses. Don't the look super blue. That's all real baby. All real.

Best of all, I can see again.

I love those glasses. I wish I had vision that necessitated the need for such adorable frames and lenses. :)

I just tried to click on almost all of your links to try to figure out whos blog that is. I gave up with about 4 left.

Nifty specs and pretty eyes!

lisa—just get some with sunglass lenses or something.

tim—way to give it that "old college try".

blogarita—everytime I see a comment from you I get thirsty and start singing Jimmy Buffett. odd...

Lynda said...

I was going to say you were reading *my* blog.

But the links are on the wrong side.

And then I blew it up. And I don't know.

Great specs!

Jen said...

Very nice.

Melissa said...

Pixie:
I LOVE the glasses. Your eyes are so blue, or did you Photoshop them?

It's Brando's blog, right?

i would be offended if it is not mine.

Mike ( ex scientia, veritas ) said...

Hey, we can see better, too! How'd you do that?

Kris said...

You look great! And I'm glad you can see yourself looking great now! :)

speckledpup said...

okay, so you need to take a picture of you, your glasses and each one of our blogs or we're gonna feel left out.

My eyes are that blue...and yes, they're mine...both of those blue contacts are mine...I paid for them myself.

You look like you smile all the way up into your eyes....I love that. That's a true smile.

later kid...
Hope you give us the answer to your little quizzie.

Lynda—nope not you. Nice to know you don't immediately recognize your own blog.

jen—thanks

melissa—all you had to do was click on it for a bigger version

VofF—nope, those are really mine. You are absolutely correct about it being Brando's (which TIM: oddly you can access your blog through only 2 clicks when you start at Brando's [one child left behind]. Like this: Click Daily Dump then Chloraphil...

snagley—what are you trying to say?

mike—oh, oh, oh it's magic...you know...

kris—thank you kindly

pup—see above for quiz answer. I totally smile up to my eyes. Sometimes so big my eyes turn into little slits. The lady at the BMV (DMV?) once told me not to cheese so much and I told her that's how I wanted to look. I'm a big smiler.

Blue-Tastic!

Mr. Fabulous said...

Stop staring at me!

Mad Ethel said...

When you were describing them I wasn't picturing them to look that cool. I reeaaaly like them. They're very contemporary and sci-fi - like the Matrix or Gattica or something.

Lynda said...

That is what happens when you have control of 8 of them.

The Boy said...

In a fit of sychonicity my glasses snapped yesterday. I am know wearing an old pair and lord do I have a head ache!

A lovely blue, exactly as eyes should be.

Kelwhy said...

sigh, i can't see the pictures - DAMN work filters...

Violet said...

I just got new glasses, too! I lost mine in Knoxville... I've hated having to wear my contacts every day since then. My eyes are really blue, too - from my grandpa - and people are constantly asking if they are colored contacts. I love telling them no!

Vegas Princess said...

very nice!! I love the look of them.
