February 1: Self, photoshopped #3Self, photoshopped #4

I’ve been wearing contacts for ages. When I’m not wearing them and want to see [which isn’t as often as you might think, my eyesight isn’t too bad on its own], I use the c. 1999 dotcom black pair. Someone mentioned the $8 glasses at Zenni Optical and after my last checkup, I decided to order a pair for utilitarian purposes. They were $19.95 or $23.95 or something and under $30 with shipping and took a week or two to get here. It was a good excuse to fool around with some photoshop filters anyway and I might choose a new icon. Maybe. I don’t know if I’m ready to go back to glasses-Gwen on the Internet. But I do look pretty smart, huh. [Do NOT zoom in unless you want to be thoroughly grossed out by my flaky, crepey dry skin. Stupid winter.]

    Heehee. I like your hot librarian look! I have contacts but I just can’t deal with them on a regular basis. They make me crazy. The peripheral vision part is great but my eyeballs end up so dry I feel like I’ve been holding them under a hand dryer all day.

    Everyone I know is getting addicted to Zenni, ordering multiple pairs of glasses online. I made an attempt too but it went badly. I foolishly had a co-worker measure my PD and the glasses that arrived are unwearable. They make me want to barf. Next time I’ll have my eye doc give me the numbers.

    Btw, I’m a big fan of local (to Minneapolis) Eyebobs. Not as cheap as Zenni, but really cute, well-made frames, with silly names.

    Thanks Sharyn for mentioning eyebobs! We think they are cute, well-made, and reasonalbly priced too!

    eyebobs reading glasses are designed for fashion-forward, outspoken individuals. Made from top grade optical plastics from Italy, each pair has UV protection and comes with a protective case. eyebobs can be converted to prescription glasses by a qualified optician. Retail: $65-75.
