I finally got my new glasses!!

Do I look like an “uber nerd,” or a “sexy librarian”? (Either one is better than what I looked like in my previous glasses, trust me.)

As some of you may know, I am the Queen of Indecision, so choosing these was a huge ordeal. I even put it to a vote on Facebook, but no one agreed and I ended up disappointing everyone. As my mom said, “You asked everyone to vote, then chose the glasses no one liked. Funny.” -_-

Or rather: (-)_(-)

Anyway, it took twice as long to get the glasses as I expected — the lens cracked when being cut to fit the frames, or something completely reasonable like that — so I was bugging out with anticipation and frustration. Because obviously the universe was conspiring against me, trying to deprive me of the immeasurable joy and transformative life experiences that wearing my cute new frames would bring. OBVIOUSLY.

By the time the glasses were ready to pick up, I’d pretty much forgotten what they looked like!

But at long last I have them, and I love them. I plan to rock these babies in New Orleans tomorrow. That’s right, Yours Truly will be partying hard in the Big Easy for Memorial Day.

(And by “partying hard,” I mean visiting the aquarium, touring the swamp, eating beignets until I explode, and shopping in the French Quarter.)

So if you don’t hear from me for a few days, don’t be alarmed. But if you don’t hear from me for over a week, you can safely assume that I have been eaten by an alligator. In which case, it was nice knowing you. And someone please pick Riley up from The Pet Spot!

    I thought you were considering corrective eye surgery?

    Enjoy New Orleans. Good luck keeping your parents away.

    And, I’ll pick up Riley if need be.

    I wasn’t privy to your facebook poll, but these glasses look good to me. I do have to admit that I’ve succumbed to Gokey charm and if I were to get glasses (which I probably should) I’d get some like his. I’m such a bandwagon jumper!

    They don’t recommend it until you’re 25-30 at least, when your eyes have supposedly stabilized. Oh, and when you have money to pay for it, lol! But I definitely am still considering it for the future.

    PS: Weren’t YOU supposed to help me distract my parents? :P

    Thanks! “Gokey charm” TOTALLY cracked me up!
