Well folks, today I picked up my brand new spectacles... a pair for reading, and a pair for distance. Dunno why, but I could never get used to bi-focals or graduating lenses... going from one to the other never was comfortable so I prefer a pair of each.
Now, before I go any further here, I want to make it quite clear that I don't need any smart arses saying stuff like I've got no excuse for typos and ect. Spectacles to rectify my poor eyesight is one thing, they does not rectify old timers and forgetting how to speel shit, so I'll have no 'Zubish-type' comments from the peanut gallery when I cock up a few words here and there. What's more, I'll have none of that speeling digicon flashed before my eyes if/when I preform a typo.... otherwise, offendres/infringres will get this....
Anyhow, the first thing I noticed, well one of them, is how much clearer TV is to watch now... cos before, HD TV sorta looked like somebody had glad-wrapped the screen after they'd fogged it up. But what's really great is being able to see even the fine print in books, magazines, etc... even more miraculous that I can actually read it. Beauty!! Now I'll be able to read a good book again... without all that squinting and constantly having to adjust how far away I hold it.
The thing is, I never had any issues being able to see or read anything on my PC monitor, maybe because it's backlit, and now I'm having a little trouble adjusting to things on-screen while wearing glasses. However, that is more a distance thing and finding the best position/distance from the screen, etc. I usually like to sit so that I'm about 3 feet from the monitor, so the reading glasses are no good for that... I gotta get up closer and that's not so comfortable.
The distance glasses are better, but I find that I need to distance myself a bit more from the monitor to gain optimum clarity, which with my current setup isn't all that convenient, either. Oh well, with an adjustment here and there, I'm sure I'll find the best position to suit my needs. Perhaps pushing the monitor farther back on the desk 'll do it? Hmmm, I might try that right now!
Well bugger me... never noticed that before!!! Miss January 2002 has nipple rings!!! Well I'll be... thought ol' Hugh was a bit long in the tooth for that kind of thing... you know, body piercings and all that. Yup, pretty amazing, that! I've been ogling that centerfold for 7 and a bit years now... and never once noticed the jubbly jewelery.
Uh-oh!!! I just discovered the one drawback/disadvantage to these specs! I can now see the dust on and around my desk. Now I know why there's that saying: "Ignorance is bliss." Now I can see it... and cleaning = less time at WC and the Playboy site. Oh well, maybe I can pretend it's dust on the lenses and ignore it., hehe.
Okay, gotta go! Girls of the Playboy Mansion just started on TV.
