Slog: News & Arts

RSS icon Comments on The Sky, EXPOSED! (Or: Rose Colored Glasses---A Giddy Rant About My New Sunglasses!)


Dear Adrian,

I was having a crappy day. Until I read this post.

You can stare at my boobies any day.

Wow - the SLOG has really lost focus.

Any chance you can Gay this thing down a bit. This is all starting to get a bit tedious and un-fun.

I'm Audi.

oh adrian, i too remember the beautiful sidewalks of paris. but i already have to wear glasses and i can't wear contacts and so i'd have to walk around with TWO pair of glasses, waxing on and off all the time and i'm already a big gay dyke geek from hell.

why did you have to write this and make it all seem worthwhile?

this little post of yours is going to end up costing me a $1,000 (i'm really fucking blind).

damn you, damn you to hell you funny, funny little man.

There are waaaaaay more straights on staff than gays. If Slog is too gay, don't slam the gays for, as the kids say, "bringing it." Blame the straights for slacking. As the kids say. Or said. Whatever.

Ahh HAH, so that's why you were going on and on about a woodpecker on the sidewalk. Now, whilst looking up, the joys of birds sitting in trees is yours. Enjoy!!

if you think sunglasses make you happy, you should try Laser Eye Surgery. going from 6 diopters of myopia since 2nd grade to 20/15 in 40 minutes is mind-bending.

vision is nice!

I'm with you! I think boobies are awesome. But I'm straight, so I'm not supposed to say things like that. It's apparently skeevy.

Whatever. This is so last century.

Dude, why do you think I started wearing the cowboy hat? Now who's gay?

Good, now I can stop saying, "Adrian, my eyes are up HERE!"

@ 3:

Two words: clip ons. Most prescription frames can be fitted with matching clip on sunglasses, so you don't look like some tourist from Topeka with those awful store-bought flip up things.

And Adrian:

Can you teach Charles how to write like this?

You must be really high to write this much about your sunglasses!

Man, this brightened my evening.

This post was the funniest goddamned thing I've read in a long time.

I know your pain. Being of Scotch/Irish ancestry, I don't tan--I freckle and burn. And my eyes are practically allergic to daylight.

So I've been wearing prescription sunglasses any time I leave the house for well over a decade now.

Yes, they truly rose-tint the world. When I'm in the country, the entire landscape is prettier, far more richly and subtly colored with the sunglasses than without. As dusk approaches, the sunsets are far more vived.

An added bonus is the ability to check out straight guys, letting your gaze linger as long as you like without them realizing it, because nobody can see your eyes.

You should really steam your artichokes, not boil them. Put a bay leaf in the water, too.

Used to wear a pair of rose-tinted glasses when I had contacts.

Now clip-on sunglasses are the way to go for me. The flip-up kind.
