Smashing Views




Blogger Brian the Mennonite said...

And it probably happened on a bank holiday when all the shops are closed. And when you finally get to one, the frames you want are out of stock and they won't be getting any in for a fortnight. Arrrgh.

Smashing first snapshot, CP. So now you must explain how the glasses got to be in that condition.

And was your vision actually that blurry as you crashed into things back and forth seeking a remedy?

This is better than photojournalism. Too bad the glasses looked good on you!

But who is the gorgeous young lady model that you've used in the first photo?

Blogger Kate said...

I agree with ces, the glasses did suit you. Hope you can another pair soon, it's not much fun when you can't see properly.

Blogger Carlz said...

oh no! what a nuisance! but i agree - tell us how the glasses ended up that way!

Is photo exhibit A from the corporate brochure? Otherwise we'd see the 100 megawatt smile right?

I thought that all parties looked liked that?..the fun parties anyway.
That is exactly how I view them through my Rum Goggles.

I can lend you an elastoplast till they're mended

Brian - fortunately all our bank holidays ended in August but I shall learn tomorrow how long I might have to wait for new frames

WW - I trod on them. It was an easily-avoided accident but a combination of uncharacteristic omissions which allowed it to happen.

Ces - I loved those glasses and I can't find another stockist in the UK

KJ - x

Dave - I think she's a travel arranger.

Kate - I am currently using daily disposable contact lenses which I keep for nights out. I think I bought this box in 2004.

Carlz - I usually take my boots off as soon as I get home. Last night I did not. I also twist my hair up every night but for some reason I left it down. I often rest my glasses on my head when I am reading and they are firmly anchored by the twisted hair, but last night they slipped through my hair as I sat in the dark, on the loo. I thought they'd fallen to my right and stood up to reach round and find them when I heard the crunch. Wouldn't have happened had | stuck to my usual routine. I apologise for the graphic information.

HE - the corporate one is far more cheesy. Please invite me to your next party.

Ziggi - I've already thought of that but my plasters have Barbie on them. Teach me for trying to antagonise Jack.

WW - my eyesight isn't actually that bad. The only problem I have now is that I often forget to take my contact lenses out and then have a dreadful fright in the morning when I wake up and can see my reflection in the mirrored wall.

What Caroline and KJ said:

You are a babe and a doll!!!

Anonymous Marjory said...

You have my sympathies. I see further down that your eyesight isn't too bad, but otherwise I was going to ask if you were like me in that when your glasses are gone, your hearing suffers...

No...? Oh.

Nice frames btw and I now know what you look like! :)

'Mirrored wall'?

This could be construed as the sign of someone a little over-egotistical, not to say narcissistic.

Or else, planning naughty things (is there one over the bed too?).

Mind you, when you look as good as you do, why not have a wall of mirrors, eh?

"Kate - I am currently using daily disposable contact lenses which I keep for nights out. I think I bought this box in 2004."

They are very good, although it's probably best to use fresh ones (says the person who buys the monthly ones in bulk and only realised recently there is a use by date, oops) I love the disposables though, I can't wear the permanent ones, so it was wonderful when an alternative came out.

harking back to a past blog of yours (sorry) I have just read Gentlmen and Players by Joanne Harris - definitely an all nighter!
But this does have a link - sorta -as a consequence I fell asleep at my desk today (first time ever though probably not the last) and I awoke suddenly with glass bent out of shape!

Blogger Pete said...

OI chaps is it me but doesn't this photo make CP look like one of those female bosses who, in the movies, take off their glasses and have the young male assistant in the office?

probably just me ;)

Blogger Ian T. said...

Oh, that's terrible! Now I understand the need for the new Pete-attracting specs. I love my main frames and have had them for years - there's nothing in existence even remotely like them these days, but they really suit me.
