The Eyes Have It

I thought I'd take a few moments to complain a little. I don't know how, but I've gotten pink-eye. Conjunctivitis. The stink-eye. Whatever it is or whatever you'd call it, it's miserable. My eyes are runny and tired. I don't really want to keep them open except that it's more convenient when you're awake to leave them open.

My daughter is home again for the second day from camp. I feel badly for her since it was supposed to include an over-night tonight. It's a Girl Scout Camp and it seems totally fun. I forgot from last year just how many lanyards come home from this place. It's like Lanyardville around here. Always unfinished, too.

The worst part about the eye-thing, besides all of it is that it would seem as though I've spread it to the other eye. That familiar itchy/granular feeling is in the other one now. I have medicine that I'm using in both eyes now and I'm hoping that it actually works. It's creepy how when you put goo in your eyes you can eventually taste it. I don't really consider that connection very often. Ick.

I just accidentally touched my eye (chasing an involuntary tear) and had to get up and wash my hands. Again. I think it may be time for a nap. Since I can. And my eyes want to close anyway.

Conjunctivitis resolves in 65% of cases without treatment, within two to five days.

I hope you weren't planning on going to Argentina anytime soon:

Due to the contagious nature of pink eye travel is banned to some countries notably Argentina and Vanuatu.

According to Wikipedia conjunctivitis normally goes hand in hand with the advent of crabs.

See just like an episode of Seinfeld or Curb Your Enthusiasm my most recent posts come together...

Mr. Anonymous' musing of the day:

Speaking of Curb Your Enthusiasm, I know I'm not the only one (well, maybe I am)who when first seeing this show thought it was a lot like Seinfeld. A lot of seemingly disconnected story lines that miracuously and humorously connect at the end of the episode.

Though I guess that was to be expected since Larry David wrote the first 5 seasons of Seinfeld and the character of Kramer was based on his real-life next door neighbor whose name was ironically enough Kramer.

Which leads me to my musing that Seinfeld is a fraud. Yes, I said it he's a fraud. Without Larry David's writing Seinfeld wouldn't have lasted more than one season...David and not Seinfeld was the heart and soul of that Curb Your Enthusiasm attests.

Let's face it any comic back in 1991 could have played that part (How hard is it to stand at a door and say, "Hello, Newman.") as written by Larry David.

That probably explains why Seinfeld hasn't been a success since splitting with Larry David..can you say "Marriage Ref."
