Or maybe this is my first world problem. Regardless - BLAH.

There are places you can try them on virtually. Here's one from GlassesUSA. And remember never to buy your glasses from your eye doc. What he charges me $600-700 for I can get at Costco for under $200. And I can bring my own frames and script and they got no problem using my frames. Think I'm going with the "Where's Gödel?" look this year.

RE: Ranting corner
I was behind a car today that had printed on the trunk in huge letters, "Music by Angie".... ha, made me think of Anjele. Smile

Funny how the mind works when your on a bike and music's blaring. Consider

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

You wouldn't want to hear any music made by me! I am musically challenged. Tongue

Love it, just can make it.

I have that whole progressive lens thing going on and if it's not perfect it really sucks. And my vision changes a lot so I can't get by with going a couple years or so like I used to. My eyes seem to age at about twice the rate I do.

Yup. My progressive bifocals change every year now and I have to get the highest refractive index 'cause my diopters are like 9-10 and I'd be wearing coke bottle bottoms otherwise. Costco can handle all that for me for like $120 for the lenses.

can't stand when people go off their meds unexpectedly. They just fire away at others and make huge asses of themselves.

one minute they are fine-- the next its BOOM!

These knucklehead weathermen!

A few days ago they called for two inches - we got 8-10. Today the called for none - We got two! This is the whitest year we've had in a while.
