Four eyes needs help  NOV 27 2006

Things have been a little slow on the site today because I broke one of my contact lenses this morning while putting them in. For most people, this isn't much of a problem, but a) I wear hard lenses, not disposables, so they are not easily replaced (2 days to a week to order more), b) the prescription on my backup glasses is at least 7 years old and the lenses are scratched all to hell anyway, and c) without contacts or glasses, I'm functionally blind, so unless I wanted to listen to podcasts all day (gah, could you imagine anything worse?), I took off as soon as I could for the optometrist.

So, my new contacts are on order, and until then I have a new pair of glasses to wear. The thing is, since I went alone and can't see a thing without corrective lenses, I had to choose new frames without really being able to see them properly. But I have two weeks to exchange them for other frames, so I wanted to ask your collective expert opinion...what do you think of my glasses?
