    Oddbill your frames are AWESOME! (I'm currently on the hunt for new ones and can't find any I love).

    Anyway, I did this last night, for a performance art project for one of my classes. No one can say UCSD is boring. NO ONE.
    (Technically not self shot, but I did take the video for it on my laptop, I needed multiple hands).


    For those interested in the story behind this, I will post it to my blog later today once the video finishes uploading to youtube. Rather not clutter SPIT with the lengthy description of it

    @Argos - Thanks! I got them a couple of years ago through Zenni Optical. You need your prescription info, and you measure your own pupil distance (they explain how), then pick frames, order and wait. They ship from China, so it can take a while. Mine took about a month. (added bonus: they were late because of customs. Zenni found out (I did not contact them or complain), and just sent me a second pair for free. Both arrived on the same day. So now I have a spare set!)

    They only cost about $30.00. Prescription lenses, the frames and shipping. $30.00.

    The frames are very well made. They are inexpensive, but not cheap. They fit very well and the feel great. They cost so little I wasn't afraid to take a chance ordering them without trying them on first. The lenses were fine too, even though it wasn't an optometrist who put in the order. After a while my prescription changed, and I had my optometrist put in new lenses in these frames. Cost for optometrist-ground lenses? $300.00!

    Three hundred dollars for a US Optometrist to put in the order, for just lenses, or thirty dollars to put in the order yourself, for lenses, frames and everything. I mean, Jesus Christ! Keep in mind that three hundred was NOT for the optometrist's actual examination and writing the prescription. For that, there was a charge for examination. Someone's profession is protected from competition, I think.

    Anyway, check out Zenni if you haven't found frames yet...

    And here I am, crossing the street, beard first:

    Are we through with "suave", then? Oh, good. I now propose "warm".

    I've started shaving my pubic hair into a mustache, if that counts as suave...

    @Andre, you look like a cool computer hacker who works for the bad guys in movies. Bad. Ass.

    @taphead, you look like you're ready to do some shady deals. POLITICAL shady deals that involve you leaving your embassy with a suitcase. Very nice, sir.
