Other Annoying Eye

So yesterday evening, my right eye was sore and red on the overlapping edge, but not swollen, and this morning it had the dead skin feel. I have an appointment with my primary on Monday. I didn't need a nap, but I was so tired when I went to bed that I decided not to set the alarm and only got up at 3pm because Spirit landed on my bladder.

It had apparently stormed while I was sleeping (I do remember thunder) and the temp was down to 85F so I went ahead and drove down to get packages out of the parcel locker. Luke can't turn the key the final bit to open it. It's not an open lock, so I sprayed the key with graphite and turned it, but it locks once it's turned so I can't wiggle it around. If that doesn't fix it for Luke, I'll talk to the post office about fixing it. He really looks forward to going and getting the mail because it's the only thing he can do outside alone (he took so long today I went out on the porch to make sure he was okay).

Spirit was rolling around on the loveseat a few minutes ago and accidentally kicked one of the giant pillows off. She was very startled and stared at it on the floor as if it would move again. Then she rolled around more on the now-free space. I haven't seen the tuxedo kitty since I fed him; maybe he was a sage in disguise.

In response to complaints, the WashPost has started putting all recalls at the bottom left of the front page of the Business section. This one was there yesterday:

DETAILS: Baxter International recalled 986 Colleague and Flo-Gard brand drug-infusion pumps, bringing the total to more than 1,500.


Safety data was falsified.


Send them back to the company for inspection.

It actually turns out these were recalled before and were sent back to customers without being inspected or fixed. I'm glad I haven't needed an IV in a while!

Also in yesterday's WashPost, an AP article on an airman charged with committing indecent acts and drinking as a minor, apparently because she refused to testify against the three airmen who raped her. She was exanmined, there's no doubt about the rape, but she felt nobody was on her side on the trial and wouldn't testify. So now the three rapists have been given immunity in her trial on indecent acts and drinking. The military is very good at punishing people who don't do what the military wants.
