Important Update

While I was in Maine, I got a call from the eye doctor that my glasses were ready. But I couldn't find time to drive all the way to the eye doctor's office and pick them up until Tuesday morning, before my lawyerly presentation. Would you like to know which glasses I picked?

Option 3!

When you helped me to decide which glasses to pick, options 1 and 3 were neck in neck. But what you did not know was that the glasses I chose were $100 less than both other options, so that was really the deciding factor. The other thing you did not know (except for Stefanie) was that these glasses were actually the ones that I already owned (thus explaining why they are so much cheaper - I only had to pay for lenses). I didn't want to tell you that I already owned them so that you would feel free to criticize them if they were ghastly. But I am keeping them for another year at least, so please pretend to like them.

In other news, I saw a work-friend as I was leaving a coffee shop yesterday morning. I said hi to him as I walked past, looking over my shoulder. And I walked right into a big column. It was very smooth.

Woohoo! Not only do you have good taste, but SO DO I! *cheers*

Heh. I still laugh at that sneaky little game you played there.

Also, I just walked into a doorframe last night and I tripped over a case of mineral water in the kitchen in my office yesterday, so I am in no position to laugh at your collision with the column. Glad you weren't hurt. :-)

Nice choice!! You look totally intelligent and lawyerly.

I am a frequent column-collide-r myself, so I feel your awkward pain!

Well, I was an option #3 voter, so yay! You made the right choice. ;)

Did you walk into the door frame with the new prescription? I had a terrible thought of you cracking those frames right in half, which is totally something I would do. I think I'm going to the eye doctor today to see about getting some contacts again, the glasses are starting to bug me. (On my face, not yours.)

I think I voted for 3, which means that I am concious of both your style and your wallet. Right?

Ha! I love that you tricked us!

Doh! Did you take it out on him - "That wouldn't have happened if I wasn't saying hi to YOU! Thanks guy!" :)

don't call me MA'AM said...

You always look good... no matter what style your glasses are.

The column-running-into-incident made me laugh! Of course, I wouldn't laugh if you were hurt. You're not hurt, are you?

I'll bet walking into that column, you really made a spectacle of yourself (heh... new lenses, spectacle... heh) Yeah, ok. It seemed funnier in my head.

Can't argue with spending less money!

Ooh, I love the glasses!! (Please tell me they weren't destroyed during your column-slam?)

Don't worry. The glasses are fine. I hit the column with my shoulder, and I was moving slowly, so no permanent damage was done.
