feelin' horny..

chuck isn't the type to bring me roses (thank goddess) but, more often than not, he'll bring home a little something. usually pieces of scrap paper, rusted metal, notes he found in library books, etc....things he knows i'll like.

last night he brought me these from the set of 'dreamgirls'..



i wore glasses throughout my childhood, and was never proud of the fact. but, now, for some reason, i feel a sense of contentment, knowing i wore horn rims starting around age 3. as the years passed, and my sense of un-hippness became abundantly clear, the glasses became much less fashionable and more nerdy, which only reinforced my already low self esteem and deepened my disdain for these imposed apparatus glued to my head. (as if having braces, dorky hairstyles and acne weren't enough to push me to the brink of insanity!!!)

to this day, i feel awkward wearing my glasses, even around chuck..i'm left wondering whether i'll ever truly grow up. but, then again, do i really WANT to?

my gums thank you!!!
and you, my dear are a vision!!! with or without specs..
i love that one shot of you in your livingroom as a kid on your 70's recliner with your 70's panted legs stretched straight and your 70's glasses and your hippy long hair...i just wish we would've known each other then!!!

baby-oUt!

I think that picture of you in pigtails is just the sweetest one ever taken!!! Those glasses do remind me of a pair I had and was forced to wear until 10th grade!!! I really hated them then. That must be why I indulge Sara's almost every fashion whim. No bobbysocks and hornrims for her!!! But, they do look kinda cute on you-the retro look and all. Love pammy

Re: pammy
oh man, you were the hippiest hipster around in my eyes!!! (and still are!!!) bell bottom gypsy queen, you were!!! and that HAiR...omg, don't get me started. i SO idolized you..

and sara's lucky to have a mom like you..
i remember only being able to afford one pair of 'cool' jeans as a teenager at one point, and i tried to wear them EVERYDAY to avoid wearing the 'uncool' pairs. mom caught on and wouldn't let me...wah.

i think it has to be a little easier now as a kid, though, since pretty much anything goes in fashion. well, i take that back. a boy still might get pummeled for wearing a skirt these days. :/

i love them!

finding the right glasses = holy grail. because i am not satisfied + need change, i have 3 pair {plus the sofa frames*} myself + continue to look in every city i am ever in.

* sofa set is worn when at home alone + watching movie on sofa + i might fall asleep + smoosh the good/more fragile frames!

i love that you call them your sofa pair!!!
i have an older pair lurking in storage somewhere.. we're talking circa early 80's, BiG round john lennon wanna be specs. let's just say they're my 'earthquake' pair! ;D

i'm sure you could find some cute hornies in a portland thrift store, though...ask the damnportlanders, they'll know right where to go...i love that community!!!
