Red, red eyes

Almost 24 hours later and my eyes are still fried. I do, however, have my new contacts in and they friggin’ rock. I just wish my eyeballs weren’t so bloodshot, bludclot.

Photoshop class #5 last night: background eraser, masks, pen tool, and using gradients to fade a selection (a trick I thought invaluable). Now the class is taking me into unknown territory (finally). I even feel behind at one point – bloody pen tool. Although, as much as it’s a pain to get a handle on – what precision can be had!

Speaking of class and eyeballs, one of my classmates has a torn pupil. And I thought getting my eyes burned was bad.

Let’s see what else is going on in the world, shall we?

The Womb as Photo Studio (NY Times – password required – but it’s free.)

This guy talks about sports too much for my tastes but I absolutely love his blog’s layout.

Ah, screw it, there’s a lot of shite going on right now in the world and you should probably just check out Google News and get your media coverage on.

My contacts suck, but that’s because I’m in -7/-8 toric lenses. I’m much more comfortable with my coke-bottle lenses.

Hey, thanks for the compliment! It’s only during college football season that I write about sports too much because I’m a hopeless addict.

It’s OK, Rusty! Your site is too slick looking to be shunned by my non-sports appreciating ass! 🙂

Toby – but you can wear contacts? They’re just a pain in the ass?

“Can”? Sure, except my scrip is so strong and my eyes so new to the concept that I can only do it for fifteen minute stretches.
