stuart's new specs



Stuart just got new glasses. They're much more stylish than the last pair, but they're also a bit more severe. I really like them, but it's taking me awhile to get used to the new look. I got used to his facial expressions in the other pair and now, every time I turn around to look at him, for the briefest instant, I think he looks really annoyed about something and it throws me. So I made a drawing of him after dinner last night to try to figure out this new face of his.

A dinner, I must add, of a very nice chicken pie that Stuart spent all afternoon putting together. So here it is, and you can see Stuart in his new specs.



No, actually, Stuart does not look very annoyed here, he looks very pleased, because he was really wanting chicken pie.

We were reading on the sofa after dinner and I did one of those machine-gun bursts of laughter, which is very annoying and made him jump. But it was also kind of funny because I was reading about just that and I didn't do it intentionally. It's in Small Island by Andrea Levy:
Suddenly this woman laughed. A laugh from nowhere. No smile or build-up titter. Just one minute solemn, the next a honking laugh, the noise of which could make a pig sit up and look for its mummy.

I love that. Oh! And my friend who built my website, Dan Fone, just sent me the link to this gorgeous illuminated Russian alphabet by Irina Vinnik (ivinni).

hmmm the top of his specs accentuates the natural downward line of his eyebrow.

I also see he is putting that blackbird thingy to good use!

He couldn't find the blackbird thingy at first and he was getting really upset. But after a good rummage through the cupboards, he emerged victorious. I don't think the pie actually needs the bird to bake properly, but it isn't the same pie without it.

There's a certain Heston Blumenthalness to those specs

In the drawing he looks very disapproving! In a cool way!

It's true, and it keeps freaking me out in real life, as well! Luckily all those hard lines of his face soften out when he smiles (whew).

My wife hated my current pair of glasses when I first got them. She likes them now... But she kind of has to since they're the only ones I wear!

Yeah, there's no way around glasses. They're just so, well, right in the middle of your face! (I like your specs, by the way.)
