    Personally I think the Clubmasters would suit you better, but if you really wish to have Aviators you can find them in very small sizes. I myself had to buy the 55mm size, which is already quite small, and they fit my face to a millimeter. They sell a 52mm as well, if I remember correctly, and they are available through online shopping sites, but difficult to find in eyewear shops and stores, which means you'd have to take a gamble without the chance to try them on first.

    Picked up some colorful, satiny hipster panties from Soma, bought tickets and popcorn for all the nieces, nephews, etc at the movies, and then bought them all frozen yogurt--as it was 104 F degrees out this afternoon.

    My Dead Space stuff finally arrived over the course of last week. Feeling pretty good about it.

    ^ Grrrr, won't be long now until I have to get one as well. I kinda don't want to, but they're so powerful and customizable now... sigh. Maybe a Galaxy SII will have to do ;)

    Yeah, the Clubmaster style is definitely better for my face.

    I don't trust online shopping for glasses frames; I really need to see them on my face in real life. Sunglasses are even worse to buy sight unseen than regular glasses frames. At least the regular ones usually come with a proper set of sizes (as well as the lens diameter, you also get nose bridge and arm length measurements though frame width and lens height would also be useful ideally). Sunglasses often sold by just the lens diameter, which is pretty useless on its own.

    Today: groceries. Lots of groceries.

    My refrigerator was saying, "Feed me, Seymour!" But this should keep it quiet for a while.

    I am lovin' it so far. ;) It's not as light as the Galaxy Tab 10.1 or iPad 2, but I like the features such as the SD card slot and HDMI ports.

    I looked at the reviews on Amazon.com before buying my tablet. Not being an Apple fan, I was considering either this or the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. The Asus Transformer sounds like a great tablet, too. There are different varieties of tablets to choose from nowadays, and the Thrive starts at as low as $429.

    Yay! How big are they? They look smaller than the 3-inch "basic" figures. Yes? No?
