Geek Eyewear

Geek is the new cool, no doubt about it. The technology age has created heroes out of the once isolated and the once unpopular. It's become cool to be a nerd, but there's a limit don't you think ... fashion too?

(just kidding, I embrace every bit of it)

I went to the eye doctor for my annual check up over the weekend. Not sure if you feel the same way, but every time I go there I feel like a kid again -- a kid getting glasses for the first time! I swear it's 1975 all over again.

(after I got my first pair of glasses, I switched to contacts as soon as I could)

So in the middle of my angst, what did I spy out of the corner of my little eye? Something new. Something different. Something ... nerdy!

(it jumped out at me because it just looked so new and noteworthy)

Geek Eyewear. A new brand of eye glasses inspired by ... geeks. Big, thick plastic frames that make you look, well, like a geek. Truthfully, they really are cool. I tried on every pair and was almost, almost inspired to buy a pair.

(the last pair of glasses I bought was in 1991 and I have not worn them in years)

The best part? Every pair comes with a pocket protector.


Check it out on their website.

What's your experience? Jim
