You know how I've been feeling that nobody reads my blog besides my mom and Desoto Joe? Well, it's not true. Firmoo contacted me about a month ago to offer me a free pair of glasses in exchange for a review, and since they're a Global Online Optical Store and they contacted me, I'm obviously a worldwide household name.
The first hurdle I had to conquer was picking out a pair of glasses without trying them on. Their site does have a way for you to upload a photo and virtually try on different glasses, which I did not do, but found someone on Instagram who did: I didn't feel like taking a photo of myself, uploading it, then selecting glasses to 'try on' so I used their measurement recommendation:
After some hemming and hawing, I settled on the DBSN62168 in gray/pink and I absolutely love them!
The biggest lesson I learned from all this is how important the lens coatings are. I immediately noticed an improvement when I drove at night! Firmoo's frame prices are very reasonable, most are below $30, so I would highly recommend springing for the lens upgrades.
Their online ordering system was very easy to follow and my glasses arrived in exactly two weeks, just as promised. Firmoo surprised me with a very durable hard case (they were shipped from China in the case, which was inside a barely-padded envelope), a soft case which I use all the time and an eyeglass repair kit which I hope to never use. I am a very happy customer!
On a different note, look at all that silver hair I'm getting. I'll be 38 in May.
Greta texted me yesterday morning to see if I wanted to explore the junkyard so we set off on our way around noon, but they were closed. Instead, she took me to an old cemetery that used to be overgrown when she was a kid, but it was cleaned and is well-maitained by a volunteer, Russ Carey. He happened to be there working that day and gave us a mini-historical rundown. You'll have to check the web site for more info, LuperCemetery.com, because I'm meeting someone for dinner in ten minutes.
I got new glasses from firmoo a couple of weeks ago - I'm going to write a post about them / the experience in a day or two. The glasses are perfect!
I'm riding shotgun on the way to Portland, so now seems like a good time to write something on my poor ol' neglected blog.
So what have I been up to? The last month I've been working on a really cool project for orientation for work. Outside of that, mosaicing a little here and there, climbing Spencer Butte once or twice a week, and hanging out with friends.
Panaromic gone bad.
I'm already done blogging. Sorry for the super short post, Mom!
