This morning, I was so tired I couldn't even open my eyes. Or so I thought, when Scott came to wake me up to tell me that our ceiling was leaking AGAIN (due to the idiots upstairs leaving their sink running AGAIN). Of course, as I squinted blearily at the ceiling, I started to think maybe something was wrong. Not only with the ceiling, but also with me. Sure enough, my left eye was swollen shut with an eye infection. Awesome. It's a fairly common stress symptom with me, so I knew the routine: ice the area until the swelling subsides, then apply a hot tea bag for 15 minutes every 3-4 hours, and if there is any luck, I won't look like a mutant before trivia tonight. If not, I can always try my hand at using make up to simulate a black eye, and create a story about some awesome bar fight.
But since I have this lovely red, puffy eye, I figured this would be a good time to play around with my camera settings and my clothing. Rather than trying to down play the red with photoshop, I went with a black and white outfit, so I could do a black and white picture!
