so. I missed the COTD and the IOTD yesterday, I was really sick. I woke up to my eye swollen shut and when I finally got it to where I could open it a bit, it looked like I had pink eye. So time to go the doc. Because you can’t go to work with pink eye. Found out I didn’t have pink eye, but a really bad sinus infection. The doc told me some really big words, but the gist of it was the area behind my eye was inflamed and causing the pain and swelling to my right eye. I was given some antibiotics and told to go home and rest. Which was good. Cause the one med made me feel nauseous and sleepy. But my eye isn’t as badly swollen today, still up there and half of my face was badly swollen too. But not as bad today. At least hubs isn’t calling me a monster this morning. :p he has a funny sense of humor.

I’m still having issues focusing with my one eye and a migraine too, but it’s not as bad as it has been the past four days, yeah it started on Monday, took my meds. It went down a few notches. Then Tuesday it started back up and the meds didn’t put a dent in it. Wednesday woke up in pain, and then Thursday woke up in pain with one eye swollen shut and half my face swollen like I had a really bad allergic reaction. Today woke up and the swelling is down, still a bit of a headache with a touch of not being able to focus. So… two more posts to do and then back to bed.

Have a good day and don’t play around with a sinus headache. I kept using my medications, but…yeah. Still don’t know what caused the infection?

Calendar day; December 4, 2015

Friday, the 4th of December, 2015 is the 338th day in 2015 and in the 49th calendar week.
General Events:
World Wildlife Conservation Day
December 4, 2015 in the World
The sad truth is that the world’s best loved, beautiful and fascinating species are being slaughtered by widespread and dangerous criminal networks that will stop at nothing to get what they want. And what they want are animal parts and products that for reasons no sane person really understands, are worth lots of money. There are plenty of synthetic substitutes for things like ivory and fur that don’t require the brutal slaughter of an animal to obtain, not to mention how hard it actually is to tell the difference between high-quality synthetic substitutes and the real thing. And do you mean to say no other dish in the world tastes as good as shark fin soup, and that we really have to mutilate live sharks and then throw them back into the ocean to die? Long story short, there is simply no excuse for the amount of animals being poached every year. And yet they are. In 2011 alone, for example, there were 13 large-scale seizures of ivory, and over 23 tons of ivory confiscated, which is equivalent to at least 2,500 elephants. A 2010 United Nations report suggests that gorillas could disappear altogether from large parts of the Congo Basin by the mid-2020s.
And it is not just the animals that are suffering. Park rangers get killed on a regular basis by poachers they’re trying to stop, and the local economies of entire towns and villages suffer terrible damage once enough wildlife is wiped out to make them irrelevant as wildlife tourism destinations. Corruption and intimidation are weakening law enforcement efforts. Unscreened wildlife and wildlife parts increase the risk of human health pandemics such as bird flu. Everyone involved is suffering.
Raise awareness and contribute to the conservation and protection of endangered species such as elephants, rhinos and tigers on World Wildlife Conservation Day’s website. This global occasion provides everyone with the opportunity to learn more about wildlife conservation and to be part of the solution to wildlife crime. Go online and join the thousands of other individuals who have taken the wildlife pledge. Promise to learn more about wildlife conservation, to spread the word about the importance of protecting our plane’ts most endangered species and the impact of poaching on our environment. Learn how to become a responsible consumer in order to stop illicit wildlife trade.

International Sweater Vestival
December 4, 2015 in the USA
 International Sweater Vestival, an unofficial holiday, is a parody of other celebrations and it encourages people wear a sweater vest to work. It’s funny, but it’s real and it’s annually celebrated on the second Friday after Thanksgiving.
The history of this Vestival is murky: the only reliable information is that “vestival” holiday was coined in 2007 by Carolyn Johnson, a reporter for the Boston, Massachusetts daily newspaper The Boston Globe. But whoever started it, he or she made a great deal – wearing sweater vests at work is the best thing that can be made during the cold and rainy season, when everyone needs is warmth and a bit of sun.
Everyone is encouraged to wear a sweater vest today. Wool, cashmere, mohair, rayon, acrylic, cotton, orlon and other sweater-like materials are accepted. All space-age materials, like fleece and goretex, that wick away moisture, come with strings and many pockets are not accepted as sweater vest. Even if they don’t have sleeves and look like sweater vests!

Santas’ List Day
December 4, 2015 in the World
Santas’ List Day is observed on December 04, 2015. It’s the day that Santa makes his Naughty and Nice lists. Santa Claus has been believed to make a list of children throughout the world, categorizing them according to their behavior (“naughty” or “nice”) and to deliver presents, including toys, and candy to all of the well-behaved children in the world, and sometimes coal to the naughty children, on the single night of Christmas Eve. He accomplishes this feat with the aid of the elves who make the toys in the workshop and the reindeer who pull his sleigh.
Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle and simply “Santa”, is a figure with legendary, mythical, historical and folkloric origins who, in many western cultures, is said to bring gifts to the homes of the good children on the night before Christmas, December 24. However in some European countries children receive their presents on St. Nicholas’ Day, December 6.
