Red Eyes and Resolutions

You know ... I had a whole great post idea of what I was going to post on Monday night. I had a few resolutions, a few bitches or complaints, and a few of my oh so hilarious observations.

As with all things at the holidays, I got sidetracked with a few other "important" projects, such as chatting late into the night with people who didn't have to work on Tuesday. So this morning, I expected to arise with eager anticipation for a new year.

Only that didn't happen. Instead, I woke up with a headache that for whatever reason I couldn't decipher in the pre-dawn darkness. I hemmed and hawed but couldn't shake the headache. So I called in sick to work. A few ibuprofen and a few extra hours of sleep, the headache was mostly gone but not completely.

Around 6 PM tonight, I was washing my face and just happened to notice that my eye looked like a roadmap outlining my past debauchery. I have no idea what happened other than I possibly popped a blood vessel in my eye. The only question is now how did I do that if that is what I indeed did.

Did I pull a Stewie and fart too hard? Was it this pic that blinded me? Who knows what caused it but I'm going to try to hit my optometrist to see what he says. I'll keep you updated and give you my resolutions.

Eye issues make my ass quiver with fear. And I don't like having my teeth messed with either, but that's a different post.

Good luck! I hope it's nothing scary. I had something similar happen recently and I pretended it was nothing and it went away in a day or so.

I had a popped blood vessel last May. It was stress related, and it went away on its own. You're probably fine, but it's a good idea to get it checked out just in case.

*cough*And if you're still composing resolutions, one should be to email the friends of yours you abandoned in Ohio last year (namely S - she's getting a bit worried and she never remembers to check here).*cough*

Yikes. Go check that if the redness does not go away.

I agress a estella. Eye issues give me the skeeves and shudder with fear.

Unfortunately, this may be with me for a few more days. I so wanted to pretend it was nothing, but I'm glad I went in.

Point taken on the New Years Resolutions ... ahem. I'm on that one as we speak.

I still shiver a little bit when I see a guy get hit in the balls; that is what gives me the skeeves.
