... Such were the words of my wry young friend Rebecca when I sent her the following image of my charming mug.
I just received these glasses in the post from Urban Outfitters (go on, snap y'self up a pair, if you dare).
As you'll note, the black dominates my pallid features, somewhat. And they are massive.
I think - as I remarked to Rebecca - the expression on my face in the above shot eloquently conveys my feelings. Note the slightly rueful twist to the smile (and the telltale anguished finger-bending of my left hand). Embarrassed amusement. Shock, manfully contained.
And, dear reader, do you detect a hint of fear? Fear at the prospect of somebody suddenly walking into my office to find me posing in front of Photo Booth with my joke-specs.
So: thumbs up, thumbs down? Roll up, roll up, for the Intellectual Hooligan's first poll (I thought I'd start you off with an easy question ...) Oh, and feel free to debate the finer points down in the comments, won't you?
