If only it were for a good reason like drinking all night, which is what I looked like when I woke up this morning despite a reasonable night's sleep. No, I appear to have contracted the dreaded pinkeye, our friendly name for conjunctivitis. None of my kids have it so I have no idea where it came from, probably a dirty shopping cart handle or something. I can't imagine where else. It's a drag.

I haven't had this since I was a youngster, I remember waking up then in a panic thinking I was blind because I couldn't open my eyes and couldn't see... I also remember that that bout of pinkeye coincided with movie night at my grandparents' house, and that meant 8mm Laurel and Hardy projected with a real film projector onto a collapsible movie screen like everyone used to have, you know, back before there were video iPods. Maybe a little longer ago. I tried my best to enjoy what were really very funny films through scratchy pussy bleary eyes. Like the ones I'm using to stare at this little type on the screen.

And here I thought my eyes were just tired and achy from so much computer work this week... it hurts to even look at anything, I can't wait to see the doctor tomorrow. I need to be better in time for our road trip, kind of hard to drive if I can't see.

Other news... not much really, I did notice today by complete accident that one of my domain names ( wasn't forwarding, and then saw that my web host had completely overhauled their website in the last week. They fixed the problem as soon as I emailed them, which is nice. They didn't know why it didn't carry over. I hope my pages load a little faster now!
