I CAN TOO SEE! [Feb. 15th, 2009|09:56 pm]
Lucy



Well, that tree was freakin' huge.





I look smarter, yeah? The illusion is seamless!

(...Except for my inability to take a photo of myself while I'm not making a silly face)




John points out that I neglect to mention the other impetus behind my reluctant trip to the optometrist; While driving one night last week, I was in search of the street where I was supposed to turn, and was unable to read the street sign until we were actually driving BENEATH the sign, itself, so the next day I finally gave up the ghost.

I quite honestly though that my vision was totally normal, and that everyone strained to see everything beyond their arm-length. Since my new specs, I've been having repeated shocks when I take off my glasses to peer at something across the room, and wonder how I've managed to live so blindly all this time. Now, I get a tad dizzy in crowds and public places when my periphery vision is slightly distorted, and everything is UNNATURALLY CLEAR, but I 'spose I'll get used to it.

Did you know that it's possible to see all the way across my apartment? Crazy.

I remember before I got my classes and had that same *gasp* experience. And, looking for the right street was my main impetus, too. :)

I have had glasses for quite some time now, and slowly was getting used to my scrip.

I went in and got new ones and oh man.

Much as I hate to say it, I need to go and do the same thing. How the hell I've been getting around is beyond me, my sight seems as bad as yours...

Strangely enough, I wear glasses without lenses in them. I tell people they are placebo glasses. I just like the way they look.

My daughter was seven when she got her glasses. We always thought she was klutzy. She got hit in the face by balls so many times. Poor thing never saw them until they hit her face. I felt so bad that I, her mom, did not know she was nearly legally blind. When she got her glasses, she was amazed by leaves in the trees. She never knew what leaves looked like. She also read every street sign we passed.


She has totally embraced the glasses look. She's now 25. She gets antique glasses, such as rhinestone cat-eyes. She has a wardrobe of glassses. She opts for the 'naughty librarian' look.

You do look like Pepper Anne.

Have fun with sight.

I think you look a-dorable with glasses. They provide a nice dark contrast to your face's light features.

Also I don't know if it was any different but I really liked the way you drew and colored this one.
