Raise your glasses

Posted by: Kitten Power

revenge0fthenerds2.jpgKitten Power is now bespectacled . . . a long-procrastinated visit to the optometrist revealed I’m blind as a bat.  I picked up my new nerd specs yesterday and through great skill and balance-fu, I have managed to trip over only twice.  I can’t wait to go to a rugby game , so I can actually see the numbers on the players’ backs and the scoreboard.

Of course there have been the nerd jokes and the lame “cast me a spell, Harry Potter” from my flatmate. 

However, the great news is that my girlfriend (sorry “Pussy Lips”) is still super-hot and boys still look super-boring.

So feeling rather sensitive, how nice it was on rubbish day when the teenage boys working on my neighbourhood recycling truck shouted “hey sexy, oh yeah, hey sexy” as I rushed off to work.  Cause we all know there’s nothing to raise a bespectacled lesbian’s self-esteem like dirty wolf whistling rubbish truck boys . . . . ahem.

To genuinely cheer my dorked-out self up, I have put together a youtube mix tape of music to wear specs by.

The Magic Numbers - I See You, You See Me

Yacht - See A Penny (Pick It Up)

The Breeders - Iris

KT Tunstall - Suddenly I See

Radiohead - Everything in Its Right Place

Dimmer - Don’t Even See Me

Bright Eyes - No One Would Riot For Less

Jimmy Cliff - I Can See Clearly Now
