Oh Yuck


Woke up this morning with my left eye glued shut and really itchy. After decrusting (there is something so obscenely gross about the word 'crust') my eyelid, I looked in the mirror and I now have one eye that looks like it came straight from the pages of Hell. I'm trying some homepathic eye drops in it today, however if it is not showing improvement by tomorrow, I'll have to go to the doctor as I may need antibacterial drops.

Speaking of eyes, the video below is a literal translation of the iconic 80s song by Bonnie Tyler, Total Eclipse of the Heart. Aside from a couple of seconds of straight talking in the middle of the video, it is hilarious. So many music videos are just so bizarre and really don't have much to do with the song that is being sung. The literal translation songs use the original video, a singer that sounds close (hopefully) to the original and words that actually describe the video. There are quite a few different ones on YouTube, but I think this is one of the best.

Sorry about your eye. That happens to me all the time and I use Similasan and it usually clears it up. It may need antibiotics though.

That video was soooooo funny!! At first I thought she was really singing those lyrics. (I'm a little slow)...lol

So sorry Sue to read you have the Pink Eye! Please note it is very contagious and easily passed from one eye to the other. Best bet is to go to the doc!

This cracked me up!! Boy do I remember those days. This is great. I am sure to pass this one on. Hope your eye feels better. Crusty eye is no fun.

thank you, thank you, thank you for introducing me to Literal Versions .... what a RIOT!

hope the homeopathic attempt works. :)

Sue said...

"what the effing crap - that angel guy just felt me up" LOL

After seeing this literal version, I looked at the original and it makes just as little sense as this one - except this one is funnier.

My eye seems abit better tonight, so hopefully it will clear up totally.

Oh gosh, I hope your eye is getting better as I type.

That's a great video! Sure hope your eye is better today.

ugh
I have regular bouts of conjunctivitis, too.

I go to the eye doctor and get drops that clear it up in just a couple days.

Good luck with it!

Renee said...

I say forget the homeopathic and go get some prescription eye drops, Sue that looks painful.

I love that our first cars were the same only mine was white with red interior.

Love Renee xoxo

Went to the doc's today and got some antibiotic eyedrops - hope they clear up my devil eye soon! (I hate going out with out eye makeup on!)

julie mitchell said...

So sorry about the eye thing...the antibiotics should clear it up quickly...
Want to thank you for the video...I so needed to laugh out loud this morning...!!

Hey Sue I had pink eye last year. colloidal silver will soothe the burn instantly and clean it up cheaper than the doc visit.

Haven't looked at the video yet, but sorry to hear about the eye! I have had my bouts with that...and it is yucky! Polysporin eyedrops work pretty well.
Good luck!
