Thank you, everybody, for your suggestions for naming my hard drive. I’ll make sure to post my eventual decision.

The question for the day is: do the bags under my eyes come from

a) lack of sleep;
b) an outward manifestation of the rot that pervades my moral core; or
c) the fact that I’m getting older?

If the answer is a), I can always manage to get a little more sleep.

If the answer is b) I can probably find a way to have somebody paint a portrait of me that I store in my closet; this portrait, like that of Dorian Grey, will display all outward manifestations of moral rot, while I remain eternally young and beautiful.

And if the answer is c) then I should just kill myself now.

I’m kind of hoping for b) but I’m at something of a loss as to how to figure it out.

    b) certainly seems like the most likely, on the evidence at hand, though a) is also a possibility.

    c) is beneath consideration. Think on’t not another moment, my child.

    If the answer is b and you manage to find a portrait, would you let me know? I’ve been trying to find someone to paint one of me since I was twenty. While I fear that getting one now might be a case of closing the barn door after the horse has escaped, I figure it’s worth a try.

    my vote is d) allergies

  4. Could it be the result of too much time spent staring lovingly at your new 12 incher from too close a distance?

    Might I recommend increasing the font size and taking short breaks? Glasses might be useful, too, so that you don’t strain yourself.

    Have you tried the Eye Cream that Bath and Body Works has? (no, not the blue spot thingy… but the other eye cream..the round ones…)

    Uh, yeah. I have bags under my eyes allthe-time. I have used so many products..and like… totally…

    owe, my stomach…

    *runs away*

    Probably not b). I would vote for a) or d) as suggested above.

    If one were to have bags under one’s eyes (not that I’m admitting to it myself, mind you), one might do well to eliminate them by reclining, supine, with chamomile teabags, soaked and chilled, over each eye for a period of not less than 10 and not more than 20 minutes.

    Also, drink more water. And eat less sodium.
