I should buy stock in Oakley

Am I a sad case or what? No, don't answer that.

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?"

I do!

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.

Dang, I haven't worn sunglasses since my big butt college roomate sat on and smashed my Jackie O's way back in the day.

I am so out of the loop.

I can't hang with you on this, homegirl. I'm a Ray Ban guy. Wayfarers all the way!
