CRT computer monitors used to make my vision blurry and give me headaches... luckily at this point I don't have to use anything other than flat panel monitors.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you look like with glasses... ;-)
I asked the Dr. about this (becuase I'm heavily LCD also now)... he said from a "good for your eyes" perspective, there's not a huge difference. (I can think of eyestrain, but that goes down with higher refresh rates on CRTs.) The real issue is just the way the eyes train on focusing on things up close and slowly lose the ability to focus on things further away... he said frequenly looking elsewhere is the real solution... like calisthenics for the eyes. :)
I look like a faggy geek that's trying to be too trendy. :P I should have taken a picture in the store. The ones I got are squarish and flatter... imagine the character in The Day After Tomorrow that protects the Gutenberg bible... that's how I felt. ew. :P
I'll have to try looking elsewhere... interesting suggestion.
Haven't seen Day After Tomorrow. And aren't we all faggy geeks? :-P
"I look like a faggy geek that's trying to be too trendy."
EMO!!! (Well.. high priced emo, I guess.)
We need to go get you a Jack Spade shoulder bag, a plaid knit cardigan, and some Converse lowtops now.
WTF is an "EMO" anyway?
FWIW, Austin already bought me a Jack Spade bag that I'd said I wanted... but we returned it when I balked. :P
As if I even know..
Emo originally started out as a nickname for "Emotional".. cute but nearly asexual geekboys lamenting about their insecurities and lost loves.
Weezer, Bright Eyes, Death Cab for Cutie, Taking Back Sunday, and Dashboard Confessional are all considered staple emo bands.
For the fashionistas, "emo" involves chunky black box framed Buddy Holly glasses, cardigans or collared shirts, shaggy and in your eyes mop hair.. thrift store tshirts and faded cords with $300 designer shoes.. If you've been to a mall in the last 2 years, I'm sure you've seen a dozen walk past you.
