Call Me Morticia

There, but for the grace of God, go I.

I know that sentence is uttered by some people whenever they feel thankful that they don't have it as bad as some others, but I always thought it sounded a bit condescending. I admit though that I might have thought it a few times the past week when my kids and my mom had conjunctivitis or pink eye. There I was tut-tutting and clucking like the mother hen that I am, but inwardly feeling so glib and proud because of the fact that I've never had pink eye.

Well, the last laugh's on me. I have been un-graced. I woke up today and sensed immediately that something was not quite right. I looked in the mirror and saw this. Yep, that's my eye and yep, I have conjunctivitis.

The other eye's afflicted too, but not as bad as the one in the picture. I look like a bloody vampire. Or, as my smartass friend told me, like I'm really, really stoned.

My eyes feel a bit different, but I'm glad they don't itch or hurt. I put some cool eyedrops in them (aaaahhh!), that's about it. And I look at pictures like the ones below (stolen borrowed from www.pep.ph). They sure are a sight for sore eyes. Haha.



I'm not a big fan of this local actor (probably because he has a ridiculous name), but I saw coverage of this show on TV earlier and man, he looked sizzlin' hot! The pictures look cheesy, but the video was so cool.

I'll be a better blogging buddy next week, I promise. I have lots of catching up to do. I know I've missed doing Blogworld Saturday the past few weeks, so I'll make up by sharing some great entries I've read, written by you people, in my upcoming posts.

Have a terrific weekend, everyone. Stay naughty.

Hmmm nice... something very alluring about a woman that is oozing puss from her tear ducts. Get well soon Loverly Lizza and try and be naughty yourself...

Photo Cache said...

i commiserate with your condition, my dear. did you get fresh breast milk for the cure?

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

I think you are always a terrific blogging buddy. It is not about the quanity of your posts or responses, it is about the quality. And while it is unlikely we will ever meet a have a beer, I consider you a friend and someone that can be counted on. Blogging buddies are very important. But so is taking time off for the "real" world. I have often (and still) say to Mimi: It is only a blog. Out it aside and address (whatever the issue is...)

You are one of the good folks Lizza. I am glad you are there for me to chat with...

Eww! Stay away from me, you've got cooties!

Haha. Don't forget to put the drops in and you'll be as good as new in a day or two.

kyels said...

Take care of the eye and try to look at more sizzlin' hot males! Haha!

Have a "naughty" weekend ahead Liz.

:P

Travis said...

Was that an instruction to stay naughty?

I hope the icky eye gets better soon.

Cheers!

eastcoastdweller said...

You just rest up and get better -- we in blogworld can wait, dear Filipina Femme Fatale!

DaddyP said...

Does this affect your vision? If yes, perhaps now is the best time to meet up - I look so much better out of focus.

Lizza said...

Penfold: Yes, batting my crusty eyelashes makes me feel like such a vamp(ire). Be naughty yourself! Hope you get some great surfing done this weekend.

Photo: Haha! Fresh breast milk? I've never heard of that as a cure. I'll have to find a lactating cow somewhere.

Nope, that isn't Piolo. That's dingdong dantes.

Bud: Thank you, my dear. You always make me smile, whether on this blog or on yours.

silverneurotic: Haha! If only I could gross you out personally.

Eyes are better, thanks.

Kyels: But don't be too naughty! ;-)

Travis: Just a happy recommendation. Cheers!

EDC: Thanks! You're another sweet one.

DaddyP: No, it doesn't affect vision. But that's ok; my vision's all shot anyway -- with or without pink eye.

Sidney said...

See what is happening when you look at pictures of half naked hunks...

Anyway, get well soon. So no more hot pictures for the whole family for the next few weeks and everything will be back to normal soon!

Lizza said...

Sidney: But I already had pink eye when I saw those pics. :-D Anway, my eyes are a lot better now than yesterday.

Heb je bier voor mij? ;-)

Turnbaby said...

Oh sugar--I can SOOO relate. I had it bad back in February--both eyes--stuck at home for four days --massive antibiotics --and it's so gross.

Get well soon--I'll be a little extra naughty in your honor;-)

Bond said...

Feel better my dear friend...and ummmm just stay on the other side of the room until it is gone...ok... long distance kiss for ya!

Kiyotoe said...

I would tell you that i've never had pink eye either but that might jinx me....

wait...

oh shhh....!

Lizza said...

Turnbaby: Thanks, sugar. I hope you're being super naughty! I wouldn't expect any less.

Bond: Eyes are a lot better now. I can sit on your couch again soon!

Kiyotoe: Haha! Never say never. ;-)

Gumby said...

Oh, I hope you get well quick!

lizza said...

I'm a lot better, Gumby. Thanks!

Tammie Jean said...

Oh no! My eyes are so sympathetic... seeing that photo made them start tearing. Who's the hunky guy?
BTW I love your sign off - Stay naughty! LOL!

H said...

My my darling Lizza, i see that despite the wretched pink eye, ya have an eye for such sights!

;-)

I hope you're much better dear dear sister.

I've been in a strange mood. this blogging thing is beginning to seem like one of the plethora of nemises [pl?] that I seem to be battling with these days.

:-(

hugs. I hope you feel better really soon.

CS said...

Yikes! Hope that's healing up.
(I've always hated that there but for the grace of God saying, too - as if God were deliberately targeting someone out out of spite.

Lizza said...

Tammie Jean: Thanks, I'm all okay now. The guy is a local actor. Cute, isn't he?

H: Take a rest from blogging, dear sis. But don't leave us for too long. We'd miss you too much! You know there are lots of us who love reading your posts.

CS: Eye's back to normal now, thanks. And yes, you put it nicely indeed.
