Bought myself some glasses.....

  1. Don't need them, just saw them while I was waiting in line at the pharmacy, and I thought they were too adorable!

    Would anyone care to elaborate on this numbering thing they use to sell these reading glasses? They had this little eye chart and I could read the last line, but it was for +1.25, it didn't go any lower. The ones I bought are +1.00, and it didn't say anything about that strength.

    Anyhoo, I just think they're cute and spunky, and I like doing things that completely transform me.... so I got them. Shoulda seen hubby's face when I walked in the door!

    Freak! I have no idea how reading glasses work.

    I DO like the look of some glasses nowadays. I just got a new pair about 8 months ago (the ones in the pic). Took some getting used to. But some glasses can look really cute!

    So..where are the peek-tures?

    Yes.... I am a freak!

    Actually, I know this will just make your head blow the f*ck up, but it was that pic of you I was thinking about! Now, don't get weirded out, I'm not gonna go "Single White Female" on you, I just remember thinking how cute they looked in the pic, and when I saw them I thought they were cute.

    I'm sure numerous pics will be taken over the course of the next 2 days...... I'll post some for ya.

    As I'm getting older, I've found it much easier to "find" veins and get an IV site in using "readers" -- the glasses that I've bought cheap at a wholesale club. For me, I bought sometime like a 2.5+ and it made the world of difference. I have excellent corrected vision with my contacts, but since I've turned 40 -- the readers have helped alot. Awesome pattern, too. Wear them just to put in IVs or draw blood. Those veins just POP out!!!!

    I used to know a guy who worked in a factory making glasses.
    Til he fell into a lens grinder and made a spectacle of himself.

    I don't think that's at all weird, Heather. Why, I've recently cut my hair short and dyed it dark in an effort to look more like Susy. Can't quite figure out what to do about the height thing, but I'm working on it.

    Now that would be funny.

    Heather, I'm not weirded out at all. I don't like glasses much, so 8 months ago I decided to get some cute ones so I didn't mind them so much. They're Nine West.

    I can't wait to see yours. Pics! Pics!

    Heather, Won't be long and you will need readers! LOL But your right, they come in a lot of cute styles. The numbers are the strenghth of the lens, with yours being the least. yup...the elasticity of your lens should be changing any day now..........
