I got new glasses. Everyone seems to like them, but they are drastically different from my previous 10 pair or so, so it's taking me some time to get used to them. The biggest, and only practical, problem with them is that they are enough smaller than my previous pair that my field of vision is a little more obscured than I'm used to. My glasses have gotten progressively smaller over the years, so I know that I will quickly adjust to the field of vision. For the moment, however, it's making me a little dizzy. Also, I don't have the bifocals in this pair because they're too small. That's okay, because I rarely use my bifocal because it's such a pain in the tuchis. I kept my old glasses in case I need the bifocal at home. But I knew I wouldn't need it at work.

Anyway, in honor of my new look, I have a new default icon of moi. Thanks, Batya, for resizing it for me.

I got new glasses in February of 2004.

yeah, if you were wearing falling-apart glasses with a bifocal in the wrong place that wouldn't stay up on your nose, I think you'd be considering new glasses also.

The truth is that my glasses started to get all out of whack 3 days after I bought them. But I didn't make it back there within the 30 days you have to exchange them no questions asked. So I lived with them until my flexible spending account reset.

Very nice picture. The new glasses look nice.

Thanks. :) It's hard to see the glasses in the picture, since it's so small. I actually like the glasses much better in the picture than I do in the mirror, which is a little odd. But they're growing on me. My snazzy new look for the snazzy-art-buying-new-moi!

Th--th--there's no snood! How do we know that's you?
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: January 19th, 2005 03:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
I rarely wear a snood unless I'm in the house or have a headache. I always, always wear a sheitel to work. I've never worn anything but a sheitel to this job.

Seems to me, that picture was taken at home.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: January 19th, 2005 03:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
yes, it was. I've been known to wear my sheitel in my house. And for a picture I was planning to post on LJ, I was going to wear my sheitel. Really, what I wanted was a picture of the "whole look" so I could see if I liked them. Eventually, a friend I emailed the picture to for her opinion told me I had to make it my new user icon, so I did.

why doyou need bifolcals?
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: January 19th, 2005 03:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
you have glasses, silly!

I need bifocals because I have lousy vision.

i know. but they're not working too well right now. stupid preggo hormones are screwing up my eyeballs. so i can't see all that hot.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: January 19th, 2005 03:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
yeah, and you can't really get new glasses while you're preggers b/c it changes too much. Sorry, hon. Another fine reason for me not to get preggers.

not only that but being preg isn't exactly the easiest thing on your body....

silly rabbit, you can't see them well enough to be able to say "yowza." I'll have to email you the bigger picture so you can say it legitimately. ;)

I don't have the full sized picture here. You'll have to wait until I get home.

Yay! You'll see them for real tonight.

Very cute! I like having a clear picture of you - you're quite the shaina maidele.
I also got new glasses today, I'll post them as soon as they are all put together.

aw, you're sweet. Wrong, but swett. ;)

I want pictures of your glasses!!

Nice - and regards to the shaitel post from before - your shaitel looks really natural - at least in the picture.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: January 21st, 2005 04:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. I hated this sheitel for a while...but then I got it re-cut and it's much better. The only problem is it has oxidized a bit too much and is much lighter than before, and much redder. I need to get it dyed back to its original color.

But so long as I wash it often, it does look natural, which is why I like it. I just need to get another because this one is going to die eventually. And I'd like to be able to do things like drop it off at the shop for the day to get dyed. No place around here likes doing that stuff by appointment, they'd rather you drop off in the morning and take home in the evening. Sigh.

(oh, and welcome to my journal)
