My eye lid is twitching.
I can remember when I thought an eye lid twitch was the symptom of a serious illness. It probably is if your eye lid twitches constantly, but a few random twitches are just annoying.
The great Google machines says eye lid twitches can be caused by stress, eye strain, tiredness, caffeine, alcohol, dry eyes, nutritional imbalances and allergies.
Geez…I probably have six of the eight. I’m surprised my eye lid doesn’t twitch all the time!

Yesterday when Rory and I began our afternoon walk, the sun was shining bright and warmed the air. Ten minutes later, the sky was dark and threatening, and I was freezing.
The biggest problem this presented was in my choice of prescription sunglasses. Once the clouds gathered, it was really too dark to wear them. But if I took them off, I would be blind — literally — depending only on my trusty eighteen-pound guide dog to get us back home.
So I did…just to see what it would be like.
The city was definitely blurry. The colors more muted, too. And while I might have expected the sounds to be louder, instead I felt more isolated. But when people passed, I didn’t have to worry if they were making eye contact with me.
It is New York City, after all.
To give you an idea of what I saw, here is a representative view of a tulip garden I passed.

Bloomberg isn’t in this ad for Pepsi — trust me, I’ve watched it several times — but the former New York City mayor’s fingerprints are all over it.
Mini cans of Pepsi? I drink two cans of Diet Pepsi with a meal. Going smaller is so…so…

In honor of National Cheeseburger Day…
He’s from good stock, too.
If you didn’t recognize that infamous squint, he’s Scott Eastwood, son of Clint Eastwood. You can see more pics in the October issue of Town and Country which features Hugh Jackman on the cover.
