This is really quite bizarre - I sit here, without any glasses on, and yet I can see (almost) pefectly.

The wonders of contact lenses.. I'm not sure why I didn't try them before. I guess I was just used to having people see me with glasses, and they'd think it a bit odd to get used to me without them. That and the fact that people generally laughed when I got a haircut, so any change of appearance would be a bad thing.

On the other hand, I am starting to get fed up of specs. I've been wearing them for about 12 years now. And without them, I'll no longer steam up when I get the subway. Perhaps it'll even increase my pulling power...

Now all I have to do is get the hang of putting them in quickly.
