What's that in the distance?

Why... it's a thing!

Today, I obtained glasses. They are compact, a sort of metallic blue and look weird on me. This is probably just because I'm not used to them.

Stars, it turns out, are not large faint blobs, but extremely bright pinpricks.
blindmouse was right, trees have individual leaves, rather than just big clumps of greenish-yellow. Huh.
The sign on the Department of Arab and Islamic Studies is green. I was under the impression it was black, but nope. Green.
You don't have to be a mere half-metre from a clock in order to read the time.


(On the other hand I can see my own acne and eczema more clearly than I was hitherto able to. When I take my glasses off, I feel like I'm airbrushed. Ugh.)

But, other than that, this is amazing! I've been walking around all afternoon with my eyes wide!

Where's the pic? Ah well - I suppose I'll see the real thing soon enough. :)

Isn't it wonderful when you can suddenly see again? I was so delighted when I picked up my most recent pair of glasses and I was nattering on about being able to see everything so clearly. The optometrist was obviously pleased, but she told me people often come back... and complain about how sharp their vision is. I can't imagine it myself.

But... what?

The sharp! It's so tremendous!

Silly people!

Maybe they just don't like seeing their own acne. :P

Oh, isn't it wonderful?

What's also good is after a few drinks, you put them on, and hey presto! You can see better and don't _feel_ as drunk. Because you can see.

Not that I do this. No. *coughs*

Fantastic, isn't it?

Mind you, I spent a good chunk of yesterday wandering around without my glasses smiling goofily at all the pretty lights and shapes. I think I was just in a very particular mood.

Mm. Whenever I want that warm candlelight effect I take my glasses off and take a couple of steps back. Magic.

What? Trees have individual leaves? Weird....

Oooh, I love that great sharpness you get from glasses. I always steal my friends glasses because things actually have a defined shape when I wear them :P

I know how you feel about the sharpness. And that airbrushed thing when you take them off is all well and good until you try putting make up on, there are occasions when my nose is almost touching the mirror.

You know, I have always thought you would look cute in glasses...
