Isn't it just the case that as soon as you need to look good, you REALLY don't? Well, it was certainly the case with me today! My band were having some promo pictures taken to pass out to the agents and clients that might think about booking us in the future. The photos are supposed to be a visual representation of the product ie: we wanted to look bloody good...and today i woke up with a big swollen eye! Perfect!
I had been feeling a bit tender in the peeper but as a regular contact wearer I figured maybe my eyes were just a bit tired... but alas twas not the case as when i woke up this morning my right eye was about twice the size of the left one and seriously puffy. Needless to say I had a bit of a panic then as every good woman knows how to do, I went straight into damage limitation mode. Out came the ice pack, cold tea bags and frozen spoons. By the time I had to leave my eye was FAR less swollen.
A day of flouncing around Edinburgh and standing creatively in lines on rocks, against walls and in amongst thousands of daffodils with the band dudes was a great laugh. Short of wearing an eye patch and wearing a parrot on my shoulder, the tactic of dealing with the mutant eye was to do a 3/4 turn so the asymmetry wasn't as obvious... I hope I got away with it! Id better have!
Ill post up some pictures tomorrow when i get them back and you can let me know if i succeeded!
