the old, the new

My original (and very much loved) Warby Parkers:

My new Warby Parkers (BB – they arrived!):


I’m unsure. I don’t think they’re actually geeky ENOUGH. Also, I’m a little worried I look like Mr Potato Head in Toy Story Something when he’s crunching numbers.

 

Chef said: Yeah. They look good.

Felix said: They look like nerd glasses. They suit you.

Grover: A-HA. YOU LOOK WEIRD.

Jasper: WHAT ARE THEY? They’re so BIG. Do they help you see better than the other ones because they’re bigger? They’re good. They’re so big.

Oscar: WHA? NEW GA GA? ON MAMA! WHY? WHEN? WHERE FROM? WHA? NEW GA GA? ON MAMA! WHY? WHEN? WHERE FROM? WHA? NEW GA GA? ON MAMA! WHY? WHEN? WHERE FROM? WHA? NEW GA GA? ON MAMA! WHY? WHEN? WHERE FROM?

 

 

Earlier in the year when all those things were going wrong with the left side of my body a friend said things going wrong wtih the left side of your body meant you were supressing your feminine side. Then Purple Cath on Twitter did a card for me and it was all about getting intouch with my feminine side. WTF people.

 

So now I’ve cut all my hair off and got androgynous glasses and I feel more feminine than I have in a long time. GO FIGURE!

 

ONWARD!

 

 

New specs

Several months ago I finally discovered a company making fantastic glasses which were funky while not breaking the bank. With the A$ at parity with the US$ I was in action. Then it took a little while for my friends in the US to get them in the post to me here.

Guess what arrived today (along with Butterfinger Christmas Bells and Reeses Christmas Bells – nomnomnom):

Please also note the decided reduction in chins, partially due to angle and largely due to running my chins off!

This is the second photo where even I can notice the difference. Tres exciting and enough incentive to keep me going.

See the hair? It’s wet. We’ve been at the beach this morning and the children not killing each other theme has continued.

I knew it would get better as the boys got older, but going to the beach – all 100 metres away that it is – is SO.MUCH.EASIER as each year passes.

Onward!
