I have two updates, one serious and one very funny. The serious one is that there's a rather warm and friendly and nice-feeling ETA on Deborah Kalin's post. I was evil and got her to write it so that I would have enough energy left for this. Then bed it is, for it's a tiring week. (Did I say I got to teach my new writing class tonight and that they're lovely and attentive and want to learn everything at once?)

The amusement is the right eye, of course. Until class finished my streaks and swirls were that. Some of the blood was dissipating, so I even had a speckled dome to look though for about an hour. Then one streak became spider like. Not just any spider. Huntsman. My big phobia. So all evening I have had a huntsman jumping and leaping across my eye. Fortunately, it's a chemically induced phobia (sensitivity) not fear of the creature itself. Otherwise this would not be nearly as funny. Still, I like it when my eye's shut or the room is dark and my vision is not full of webs and that web has no deep-brown inhabitant sprawling as if it owns my vision.

What the ophthalmologist didn't tell me yesterday was that my right eye would start telling different stories to the rest of me.
