In Which We Can See Clearly


I got new glasses, and not because of some stupid witness protection program.  Forget I said that.  Anyway, I got new glasses.  Some while ago, my optometrist suggested I get a pair for using the computer and it turned out to be a great idea.  Monitor screens tend to be at a distance neither reading glasses nor distance glasses can correct for.  Try computer glasses today!

Everything with them would have been just ducky except I stupidly got them in the same frames as my distance glasses and I could never tell them apart until I was walking outside and wondered why everything was out of focus.  Again.  Dammit.

My new frames’ shape is almost identical to the old ones, but they’re just different enough to screw up my depth perception so that stepping off a curb is an adventure.  I expect to get used to that soon.  And in the meantime as a trade-off, I get the wonder of brand new lenses,  with everything so clear and crisp.  Earlier I was waiting on the sidewalk for some friends just staring up at the leaves’ edges, thrilled.  Passersby probably thought I was loaded, but that has happened plenty of time before.

And they’re already crooked.  No matter how much the store adjusts them, some gravitational field that science will never master immediately wonks them out of line.  I’m convinced if my glasses are ever straight, they would just make my face crooked.  Or more crooked.

Also, guys with glasses who probably never have trouble getting passes:




So why have I suddenly become so coy about pictures of guys flashing their bits?  It’s all the fault of Tumblr’s new policy against so called  porn.  Tumblr was where I got all my feelthy pictures and what a wonderland of smut it was, page after page of incredibly gorgeous men scrolling by.  Now it’s nothing but underwear models demurely hiding their goods.  Unless I decide to start illustrating my posts with neo-nazis, I will need a new source.  If any of you have any suggestions, they would be welcome.

  1. Those style of glasses are very becoming on you. I like them. I got a pair of readers to read extremely small print when we get a matrix at work on a floor plan or such. I feel odd when wearing them since I never had glasses. I once pulled them out when the lad was here to read something. We end up having sex and he wanted me to wear the glasses. Said I looked like a sexy nerd. You mean I could have been getting laid more with glasses?????


  2. Believe it or not, Blogger still has some blogs you may like. Try Googling such terms as “bodybuilder blog,” “physique blog”, etc., and see what you find. The darker frames look good on you, but why do they need to be straight? Are they Mormon or something?


  3. I love the dark frames, sugar! My last pair were dark purple. I need a new pair as I’m back wearing some very dull wannabe tortoiseshell frames. By the by, I sang the post title in my head as I read it. I can see clearly now the rain has come… xo thanks, sugar!
