Gosh, it seems I was whining about eye trouble just yesterday, but it was actually more than two years ago. Time flies.

TMI about my latest eye escapade. Sorry, no photos! )
aceofkittens: (bad mood)
Well, here is an update of my woes from yesterday:

First of all, I did find my primary set of car keys lurking at the bottom of my backpack, which I had already gone through at least three times. Of course.

As far as my broken tooth, I was at the dentist from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., in the actual dentist's chair from 4:30 onwards having my tooth reconstructed. It proved to be that the tooth itself, not the filling, had broken. Yes, there is a filling in that tooth, above the part where it broke. Essentially, the "live" part of the tooth broke away from the filling. I tried to get a copy of my X-ray to post here, but it was taking too long and I needed to go.

Unfortunately, because it was the tooth and not a filling and because there was no cavity... my dental insurance didn't cover this procedure. So I had to pay out of pocket. Dun Dun Dun. $250 later... I have the finest gold grillz a pirate could want! No, just kidding. It's a regular beautiful expensive white tooth.

Moral of the story: I'm not certain this had anything to do with me biting [ profile] eto_theipi, but I have strong suspicion that he hexed me. Bitch! :)
aceofkittens: (battle!)
I broke my front tooth this morning biting into something. I actually have a filling in my front tooth and it broke in half and the half fell out. Now I have a (charming?) gap in my smile.

And I'm leaving for my trip tonight.


ETA: I've also lost my car keys.
aceofkittens: (pants)
I spent most of this past week as sick as the proverbial dog, my pinkeye blooming to "Eye of Sauron" grandeur. It started in the left eye, then went into the right. ETA: But sadly, I didn't think to take a picture of it! D'oh! My co-workers freaked out so much that I got forcibly sent home, so I got to work from home! I got a lot of work done and I am hopeful that this bodes well for being allowed to work from home in the future.

Despite the fact that my eyes and my cough are both better, I am still feeling fairly sick and low on motivation. I haven't been to the gym in over a week and some of my best pants are punishing me by no longer fitting. Damn you, pants! Lie to me, why don't you?! :) I think tomorrow I will try to start up my running again.

I actually stayed home from work today because I have a wracking cough and conjunctivitis. My left eye is bright red and shoots lasers! Isn't that awesome?
Not so much.

So here are more pictures! :) Warning: lots of images.

I wonder if I can blame the excruciating "charley horse" cramp that woke me up at like 7 a.m. on dehydration due to excessive drinking... :)

I wonder why I'm shooting myself in the foot by staying up so late. It's going to be a looooong work week.
aceofkittens: (bad mood)
Last night at around midnight, I had a massive allergic reaction to something and my right eye swelled almost completely shut (and I started hiving elsewhere). I immediately took Benadryl, sending myself on a very quick trip to "passed out land." This morning, while the swelling is better, it's still pretty bad. There's no way I can put in my contact lens and I don't have my new glasses yet (I lost my glasses a few weeks ago. Or perhaps the domovoy took them...). All I have is my old "Lisa Loeb" glasses and the protective coating on them has corrupted, so they're clouded over and I can barely see out of them, much less drive, work, etc.

If I wear an eye patch to work, everyone will make fun of me. That wouldn't bother me that much, except of course I can't find the eye patch either. Guhh...

I have photos, but I'll post those later. Because I have some exciting news...

I had some alcohol and didn't break out in hives!!!!

aceofkittens: (heron)
Today's bit of good news: The store where everything cost $9.99 isn't closed, after all — not yet! It was supposed to close in early September, but I guess it will now stay open through the end of the year. I'm so pleased! I'll have to come back for a leisurely shopping spree. Hooray!

Today's bit of yucky news: I have a stye in my eye. Disgusting!! It's in my eyelid, and boy, it hurts right now. I'm putting a hot tea compress on it. I so can't have a major eye infection right now. I'd write more about this eye thing, but it's really too disgusting.

So, the people have spoken, and I guess I will try to make the "cup of coffee" costume. The question is, how the hell do I do it? Any ideas?

(Only [ profile] toastmantom will get that, but I am all about the in-jokes for one person's benefit.)


Rambling Rover... )

I guess I should drive over to help out some more with the new place. Other people will be hauling around furniture, though, and I kind of feel like waiting til that's over and done with.

I've eaten way too many Girl Scout cookies today (made from real Girl Scouts, naturally), and I feel like I'm going to be sick.

Actually, I don't feel all that great -- all tired and drained and like someone took a big piece of sandpaper and rubbed the inside of my lungs & throat with it.

Must remember to buy Benadryl. And maybe fill Albuterol prescription...

After a yummy dinner with [ profile] baogirl (and what a deal it was! I'll be eating the leftovers for the rest of the week), I've come home to collapse and stare at the walls for a while. I tried to shop for summer clothes, but kept gravitating to the nice, dark, winter clothes. Prices have gone up at the store where everything used to cost $9.99, and despite a few potential bargains, I resisted the siren call.

But, really, the best part of the evening was when I started to break out in hives. )

*sigh* And I miss my icons.

I must confess that I love Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Despite not having cable, I've managed to see a number of episodes...

Quiz Results #1! Which one of the Fab5 am I? )

Quiz Results #2! Which of the Fab5 is my type? )

In other news, my repulsive sunburn has cracked and peeled and I think it's going to do it again.
aceofkittens: (Default)
So, I got sunburned on Monday and today is the first day I can touch the afflicted areas without screaming, crying out in pain, and generally carrying on like a pathetic girly girl. I swear to God, my legs swelled up from this burn. Now I'm waiting for the hardened leather carapace to slough off and reveal the pink, soft skin underneath.

Stuff that isn't all that interesting. )

That is all.

I'm going to do one of those massive entries where I post about everything you ever wanted to know about what I've done lately (but were too afraid to ask).

Today's accomplishments:

No more geocaching inside my mouth! )

Also, I am a computer genius! )

And before that...

There's no bench there. )

And before that...

Drink! )

Having now abused the LJ-CUT in new and unusual ways, I bid you all good night.

(Well, she wasn't making eyes!)

I spent the day half-blind after getting my eyes dilated at the optometrist, admiring myself in the mirror (that I had to hold at arm's length to see myself in), fancying myself quite the Cleopatra with those druggie eyes. Mm... belladonna.

I wish that the degeneration of my eyesight would stop progressing for just a little while... just those magical two years that they seem to require for any sort of corrective laser surgery. Or, I suppose, I could hightail it to Mexico or Canada or Russia and get some doctor there to just do it. While I'm out there, I could also get some plastic surgery, some electrolysis, and perhaps courage, brains, and a heart.

And now for some disgusting TMI that you really don't want to read, so just don't say I didn't warn you, ok? )
aceofkittens: (Default)
Yesterday was a day filled with unexpected excitement, as I had to go to the student health center because of an excruciating stabbing pain in my right eye. One moment, I was peacefully sitting there, the next moment, my eye was weeping copiously and I had to close all the blinds because it hurt so much to look at the light. I then ended up having to drive myself to the doctor's office, because the only appointment they had was 45 minutes later and the bus didn't come soon enough.

Driving along while one of your eyes is crying and begging for mercy == exciting! I immediately got on my cell phone as well, just to be an even bigger hazard. (just kidding)

They diagnosed me with a scratched cornea and gave me special ointment for it. I got to wear a patch like a pirate. Arrrr!!! Now, I have no fucking clue how this injury happened, because I haven't been wearing my contacts lately, so nothing's gone into my eye. I mean, I guess it's possible that I got something blown into my eye somehow and rubbed it or something. There's enough crap flying through the air around here.

Anyway, today it's much better. It doesn't hurt at all. It's no longer bright red like it was yesterday. My eye is a one-hit wonder.

Well, it's been quite a week, but again, big tease that I am, I don't really want to write about any of it here. I've been shocked, peevish, angry, scared, happy, and all sorts of other moods that are covered in the LJ mood list (and some that aren't). The weekend looms ahead and afterwards, there will be some very drastic changes in my life, and none that I had any control over. That's very cryptic, I know, but it's the best that I can do at 2 a.m. after the day I've had today.

So, instead, I'm going to talk about my Mole!!

Not for the squeamish. Avert your gaze. )

Anyway, I think I'll sleep on it. Stressful day ahead.
aceofkittens: (Default)
TMI Warning! Not for the easily grossed out!

So, earlier this evening, I found myself picking at what I thought was a pimple on my shoulder. Pick pick pick. Pick pick pick. It just wasn't behaving the way a blemish ought to. How unsatisfying!

Then I looked at it. Ah. Well. That would be because it was a mole! A bleeding mole now hanging gruesomely from my shoulder, clinging for dear life. So then it bled copiously some more. I've never seen this mole before. A new mole? And now, a very dead mole. Disgusting.

5-HTP is now making me overwhelmingly sleepy. I think I can live with that if it means I'll actually get stuff done.
