I am not accustomed to wearing eyeglasses.

Last year, I finally admitted to myself that my 35 year-old eyes were not as keen as they once had been. So I toddled off to the eye doctor (who was, incidentally, made me laugh, and so I liked him very much indeed). My eyes are not all that bad, but I now have glasses for driving. The eye doctor also suggested using them if I was going to be staring at a computer screen for extended periods of time. I almost never remember to put them on for driving, but have been wearing them religiously for NaNo.

Did you know that if you sip from a mug of steaming tea, your glasses will fog up? Or if you forgot to take them off before running in to the kitchen to check on the chicken you have roasting in the oven? Open that door and *whoosh!*

Here's another thing: even if you come nowhere near touching the lenses, the next time you put them on they will be covered with fingerprints. Some strange magic, no doubt.

But they look all right. Don likes them a lot. Now that I have a digital camera, I might take a picture; save for the red hair, the killer body, the stunning face and the wheelchair, I look a bit like Babs.

Oh, and Oracle would have no problem figuring out how to get the pics from her camera onto her computer. Stoopid superhero computer geniuses, making the rest of us feel... well, stoopid.

Ah, the wonders and secrets of glasses....they do look good on you though....at least you don't have the problem of not being able to find your glasses, since, well, you can't see without them.....

Tea is nothing. Try having Mr Noodles in a cup. That's the stuff to make your glasses fog.

And I totally agree with the whole fingerprints bit. It's amazing. :D

Mine need constant cleaning. Every night when I shower, I fill the sink with sudsy water, and in go my hairbrush, comb, and the glasses.

What I really want is an ultrasonic jewelery cleaner type thing that is tall and skinny, to dip them in. (They must exist...they must.) I got them *really* clean in the little ultrasonic cleaner that my mom has, but it only fits half and then I have to turn it around.

All the dusty jeweler's loupe's went in after that... :)
