... it's what's in the dictionary.

Dictionary.com tells me that the verb for putting blinders on something is to blinker. Sure enough, my Word spell checker doesn't recognize the word blindered, but it does recognize blinkered. So, though I originally wrote blindered, I've accepted a couple of expert opinions.

Then again, to blinker is a transitive verb - we put blinders on something. I referred to being blindered (okay, blinkered) which would be an intransitive use. What's more, it wasn't my eyes that weren't being blindered, but rather some tangential items. I'm far from sure that this is a case of fully acceptable usage, but hey, who cares.
