I Feel Like An Adult:

I've used insurance that I pay for myself to get new glasses.

Now, I've had glasses for literally 15 years, and I've been mostly wearing contacts for almost 10. And I decided that I really needed updated glasses, not the ugly ones with the 3 year old prescription I'd been forced to rely on when I didn't want to put in my contacts.

They're black and lisa loeb-ish and make me feel like Cat Woman. Don't ask me to explain that last part, they just do.

And, one of the best things, besides the fabulous gay man who helped me pick them out (he was, in a word, fabulous), is that the inside is a bright, happy blue.


Now, none of you are allowed to tell me that I really AM an adult, and offer up the proof of my impending quarter-centurty birthday. If you do anything like that, you will be NO LONGER INVITED to my birthday party.

That is all.

Let me offer you a piece of advice for your 25th birthday... don't write your parents a lament about becoming a quarter century old. I don't think they appreaciated that (when I turned 25, my parents were living in Asia, and as this was before email was ubitiquious, I wrote about every other week and had to say something... I wish I could find my mother's reply!) Nice glasses and happy upcoming birthday.

The Lisa Loeb-Catwoman glasses are hot Marcia!

And you're right, that certainly is a "HAPPY" blue!

I love your glasses. If I lived near you I wouldn't say a thing to mess up being invited to your birthday party. I know it will be nothing short of fabulous, as it is of course your birthday and you are FABULOUS!!!

I like them too. The inside of my prescription sun glasses are blue like yours, cool.

That makes me want to need glasses!

Did that make sense?

Right before I turned 30 I had to update the glasses. The chick that helped me out was a young 20's girl....I tried on a pair of leopard print glasses and she told me I looked really young...so I bought them.
