Red Eyed Monster

black swan with burning red eyes

We all know those days where you wake up too early and you can't get back to sleep.
Then you spend the rest of the day fighting irritability aka 'The Red Eyed Monster'.

Add to that wrangling with the quirks from a computer system upgrade and that pretty much describes my day.

  1. Wow, I had to look twice to figure out what it was!

    1. I guess black swans are rare enough without seeing them head on like that. ;)

  3. I am praying my "red-eyed monster" won't show up this week. The other couple who work at the same motel as me have gone on vacation from last night to saturday evening. I am working 18 hour days, and getting less than 6 hours sleep during the day. I will be staying in a room at the motel as my home is a half hour away from where I work, and it isn't worth it to make the trip. My husband will be coming to visit me a couple times, but it will be hard sleeping in a strange bed without my beloved husband beside me

    1. Gahhh, that does not sound like fun at all. I always find it hard to sleep without my hubby too. I truly hope you get through the week without going bananas.

  4. Ah! To me, he doesn't quite look like a monster. But, I you do not want to see me in the same pose minutes after waking up. Ja!

    1. I agree with you, I think he looks rather dapper, red eyes and all, but me first thing in the morning after a lack of sleep? Definitely red-eyed-monster material.

  5. Stella, He looks as scary as a monster, all right! Hope you get your computer unquirked real soon!

  7. What a handsome fellow! I'm not scared of him now but you know if he were chasing after me hissing it would be a completely different story 😜

    Thank you for joining us again this week for Photo Friday!

    1. I think I'd be a bit worried if he came chasing after me too. The truth is they are actually really used to humans and when they do come up it's to see if you've got food.

  8. I love seeing these beauties and still find them fascinating.

    1. I was hoping to see cygnets but apparently we were a little too early in the season. This lake isn't very close to home so we might not make it back again this year. :/
