Approximately four months ago, I lost my Oakley Minute sunglasses. I say approximately because I really don't know when I lost them. I really like those glasses.
On Mother's Day weekend, I got a new pair of sunglasses. They were Ray Bans. I'm not going to bother you with boring details about them because I returned them two days later to Sunglass Hut.
I got a new pair of Oakleys. Oakley Half Jackets ... black ... with polarized grey lenses.
I know ... "Maidink, who gives a crap?"
Now my oakley sunglass obsession is back.
I bought a pair of Oakley Minutes off of Ebay just because they had ruby iridium lenses which are the same type of lenses Cyclops wore in all the X-Men movies.
Yeah, Cyclops, my other obsession.
Now, here's the insanity (not like I'm mad enough as is).
Oakley is selling their X-Metal "Juliet" (which Cyclops wore in the first X-Men movie) and their X-Metal "Penny" (which Cyclops wore in II and III) style sunglasses with the ruby iridium lenses at their on-line store for $425. They are being offered for a limited time. Once that time ends, they'll show up on Ebay for some exorbitant amount of cash, I'm sure.
No, I'm not that crazy and I am not buying them.
The sad part is I actually know about it.
At least I don't download kitchen appliance playing music videos.
