Making a spectacle of myself

Last week I got new glasses for the first time in almost seven years. Here's me in my new frames.



Not sure why I made the picture so huge, but oh well. I like them a lot, and so far so have a lot of other people. I've been getting a lot of compliments on them, which I've enjoyed. When I chose them, I thought of them as Buddy Holly glasses, or my Rivers Cuomo glasses if you want a more current comparison (though he has a different look in Weezer's cool new video). They're also similar to Jemaine's (of Flight of the Conchords fame) glasses.

But that's just what the glasses look like; when I put them on, I reminded myself of someone, but for a few days I couldn't figure out who. Then it hit me: I look just like the Verizon guy.


If you have any other ideas of who I look like with my new specs, leave a comment and let me know.

I'm a fan. Just for kicks, you should walk around occasionally with your phone saying, "Can you hear me now?" At least now you know your next Halloween costume! :o)

Are you back in Utah?
