Purple thing update: It's still there, but more reddish now, with just a purple spot in the middle. I tried covering it in make-up but that didn't do much, so I'm working from home.
I did finally leave the house. Just to go to the deli. The day is rainy and gloomy, but as it turns out, umbrellas are even better cloaking-devices than sunglasses.
In spite of having months to prepare for staying home for days, I didn't. So I've been snacking on orzo with all-the-veggies-I-had and grilled cheese. Not at the same time.
After two-and-a-half day's of orzo, today's deli sandwich is heavenly.
