Still looking for the Brain

Pink eye update: Went back to the doctor today, because I don't seem to be getting better. Basically, most people that get pink eye get it due to a bacteria, which the eye drops take care of. Mine appears to be viral in nature, which is why the eyedrops aren't really doing anything. And, since it's a virus, there's nothing that can be done short of waiting it out.

Doc said that this typically lasts between 3-10 days. I mentioned to him that I had a head cold on last Tuesday, and he said that *may* be related to the same virus. Basically, he gave me some stronger eye drops (oh goody) and said "Your body will heal itself."

I am still considered contagious, so I'm going to work from home, probably the rest of this week. Doc also said that, if I'm not better by the weekend, come in again Monday and they'll see what they can do -- though it won't be much.

Man, this new year just bites so far!

Yes. We've been sharing makeup cross country. I was hoping to tell you some other way...

I thought that eyeliner you've been sporting looked familiar...

Okay, now that we've got that cleared up, don't forget to change your sheets. I'm not sure why that's an issue, since who wears eyeliner to bed--

--no, don't tell me!--

--but there it is. Conjunctivitis = bedding-laundry.
