About a 7. I like them though. I'm looking to get those real thick black nerdy ones to make me look like a desirable attractive bookworm

WAT - The Latina that fitted me kept raving "They're French! They're French." Having done the bookworm look for many, many years I hope these help me pull off the look of being an expert on the films of Godard and Malle. (As if I'm not!)

Two. They're actually quite stylish, and not in that "hip-nerd" way that, let's face it, hasn't been fresh since the Clintons left the White House.

Huntington - Phew, thanks. I was fearing that someone might say "Oh, wow, those look like a dot.com nerd" or "Doesn't Elvis Costello have the same style". (Not that I don't love EC, mind you.)

I know nothing about nerds or what they wear. (I'm not even that cool.) But I heart your new specs.

Emily - Thanks. I think true nerd specs are supposed to be darker and bigger. Plus, they're French. Ooh la la!

Those are Art & Architecture, not Nerd. Dig the angles on that guy!

 
At 4:46 PM, Blogger Ladrón de Basura (a.k.a. Junk Thief) said...

Rich - Art & Architecture. I'm flattered.

Wow. Those look French. Are they French?

 
At 5:10 PM, Blogger Ladrón de Basura (a.k.a. Junk Thief) said...

Dave - I think so. What do you think? Can you read French?

Hot! or is that chaud?

Jason - Thanks. I'll take either.

Mouse - Now provided I don't slip and clean them with sandpaper or something.

Depends on your own definition of nerd-but I think they're most becoming. :)
