Seeing Red

Yesterday's entries excluded, I haven't written for a while due to a combination of tiredeness and conjunctivitis, the latter keeping me off work for a few days last week, while I glared balefully at the world through reddened eyes.

A trip to the doctor yielded a diagnosis and some antibiotic goop to squirt in my eyes, which has resulted in me looking this week as close to human as I ever do. There is a slight side-effect though. The gunk causes a disconcerting blurring of my vision, which persists annoyingly until I put my glasses back on.

Empathic sympathy. Did you also have to peel dried gunk from your eyelashes before you could open your eyes in the morning? If so, even more sympathy.

Without wishing to gross people out too much, yes.

...which has resulted in me looking this week as close to human as I ever do. You sound almost as bad as me.

So I take it that you wear glasses to either make yourself look more intelligent or correct your vision in the odd case of goop being in your eyes because when I am not wearing my glasses my vision tends to be blurred. :-P

And since when did you start using the 'current mood' option!

I thought this time it helped to make clear that I might not be ending on an entirely serious note.
