But It Can’t Be Over Already!?

Dang, the whole holiday is almost over. I hate that. It is so cool to have a 3-day weekend looming before you, like a big shimmery mirage when you’re walking through the desert. The desert of work and February. Not walking through dessert, because that would be cool, unless it was cherries jubilee because that […]

Open Letter to Scott McClellen

I just read on CNN that Scott McClellen (who, I will disclose upfront, I greatly dislike, to put it mildly) said the following to the press:“I think the American people are looking at this and saying, ‘Enough already. Let’s focus on the priorities that are most important to this nation,’ ” Scott McClellan said, urging […]

TGI Bacon Day!

It’s bacon day again! Yay! (Bacon day…you know, bacon day. Every Friday the cafeteria has a “by the ounce” breakfast buffet thingy and you can fill a container with crispy bacon for 40 cents an ounce. Bacon is light, and you can get quite a bit of it for 2 bucks. I’m just saying.) Had […]

What’s Bubbling in My Mind

Still pinky-eyed. They do look better after I’ve been up for a while, though, so I have that going for me. I assume the people at work all figure I’m drunk or on drugs or something. I suppose I am, if you consider eye drops a drug. I have them all lined up on my […]

Day 7: Slight Improvement?

I think I’m on the upswing with the eye thing. I called the doctor yesterday just to ask if I should be concerned that I hadn’t seen ANY improvement since my visit on Thursday, and he gave me a piece of information that he’d neglected to mention when I was there…it takes 7-10 days for […]

STILL Not Better

Oh man, my eyes are just not getting any better. I guess I’m going to have to call the opthamologist tomorrow and ask if there should be some improvement by now. I assumed that after 4 days on the steroid drops I’d be looking and feeling better, but I look and feel exactly the same. […]

Not Better Yet

[Crap, I had a whole huge post and when I tried to upload the new smaller version of the eye movie Firefox crapped the bed and shut down and I lost my post. BOO! Well now it’s up. 740K or so. It might work better if you right click and save to your computer before […]

Modern Day Medical Treatment

I videotaped the medical treatment I received today, and I turned it into an animated GIF so you can view it right in your browser window. It’s less than 1.5 meg. Medical Treatment Movie (Oh, okay, the “after” is from a old photo. Just to be upfront.)

Not Better Yet

I did see my regular doctor yesterday, who didn’t have to look very long or hard to say that I probably wasn’t having allergy problems. No kidding. I have the eyes of the undead. Little children run and hide. People at work give me double-takes. That’s the hardest one to deal with. I feel like […]
