yesterday my favorite ex-roommate of all time markus (first picture below) was celebrating his dirty thirty in a 9 to 9 twelve-hour party extravaganza. as the night went on i met two people who stood out - sal (second) and pelin. interestingly all three grace their faces with a pair of kickass spectacles. not to jump to conclusions here but do i detect a pattern of interesting people wearing interesting glasses? well, it's sunday and i probably won't do much today so at least i can pretend i've created a new cliché. feel free to give your own view on the matter.
