My (unfortunate) Halloween Costume

And for Halloween this year, I will look like I got in a bar fight and came out on the losing end.

No, not really. Well, yes, really, that's what it looks like occurred; however, the real story is far less exciting.

To the mosquito who thought it would be really funny to take a big ole bite out of my eyelid while I slept last night:

Not funny at all. It looks like I've been punched in the face. I can't see very well, particularly in the 'up' direction. It hurts. The swelling, photographed at 5 AM this morning, has not diminished noticeably since that time. None of the other bites you inflicted upon my poor, slumbering body last night have swelled to such gigantic proportions. Be warned: If I hear you buzzing around again tonight I will turn on every light in the house and personally hunt you down with our electronic bug zapper.
