Buying Glasses Online

Lately we've been sporting some clunky, thick-framed black glasses that would have been stylish in Hipsterville, oh 5-8 years ago. Luckily for us, this puts us right on the cutting edge of Engineeringdom. As a defense mechanism for coming off as some kind of hoity-toity downtown motherfucker, we postscript our responses to comments about them with "They were $40 online". It's a fact -- you can buy the same quality frames sold in stores easily for that much, including the lenses, coatings, and shipping. In this post we pass along our experiences on the subject.

When The Pressure Is On, Just Shockey The World

We bought plane tix to NOLA as soon as Garrett Hartley's kick went through the uprights and broke Brett Favre's ankle. Otherwise, we couldn't have looked ourselves in the mirror as Saints fans. Lucky enough to watch the game on a projection screen! with perfectly synced! audio in the French quarter!, we then hit Burbs drinking Modelos from Rouse's. It was an all-time great weekend, complete with ALL the faves: Central Grocery, Pho Tau Bay, Babylon, and Cafe Reconcile.
