Glasses Update

* * Update on Glasses Update * *
The right lens fell out of my expensive prescription sunglasses (last time it was the left), so I returned to the eye non-doctor for repairs again. The woman lightly scolded me for leaving them in the hot car (apparently glasses are made of cat) and fixed them. I thanked her, put the glasses back on, and the lens promptly fell out again. She must have left them in the car while repairing them. So, she fixed them for the third time in the six weeks I've had them, and I left after promising to keep them with me in a comfortable climate with fresh food and water and a ball of yarn. I guess I have to name them now. Is Stippy a good name for sunglasses? How about Booger? What if I pronounced the latter with a fake French accent ("Boo - gher")?

Busted lens? Sat half in the sun and half in the shade so that photo chromatic lenses only darkened on one side?

Captain Dumbass - I have the prescription sunglasses equivalent.

Jay - they still work as long as I keep one eye closed. Fortunately, the remaining lens is over my good eye.

Coal Miner's Granddaughter - my haircut's not that bad.

Mrs. Hall - I might be a chick. The jury's still out on that one.

Maundering mutterer - the lens is intact, but sadly it left the glass set. I think it plans to record a solo album. That never works.

Robin - it was a great start to a really crappy day.

You bought yourself some cheap-ass mother fuckers, din'tcha? I hate that crap. As long as they aren't charging you for every time you go in, I guess it isn't horrible.

Too bad you had them in the shop. I hear there some bunnies walking around A-town but they were so glowy that you needed shades to see them....better luck next time! :P

Well just squint a lot!!!

you are wearing john lennon`s glasses.

no wonder they are falling apart.

do they have bullet holes too?

Just get cybernetic eyes already and stop your bitchin'.

metalmom - apparently I got some cheap-ass glasses for just over $200 (including a 50% discount). Definitely going to lens crafters next time.

Monogram Queen - I do that to appear Japanese, but nobody is falling for it.

dr.alistair - they're teflon coated, so I assume they're bullet proof. If anyone shoots at me, I'll block the bullets with my eyes.

Avitable - my insurance plan only covers penis prosthetics, not eyes.
