Current Mood: calm calm
Current Music: Peter Kater - Anthem

I'm subjectless today and probably won't write too much in this installment due to the dob head that's impeeding my typing arm. I swear once I actually get down to serious writing, this Fiona is losing her place on the couch either that or her head will move off of my lap.

Listening to some haunting piano music from Peter Kater now. I don't know why I like darkish music but I do, it's good and contemplative.

I got an email last night from a girl from universioty who is the historian for the study abroad association. She wanted an article from each one of the continents and I was the lead dude for Australia. So after I post this I think I'll write my article and post it in my journal and email it, should be a good one, and a chance for me to do some more journalism of which I haven't done much of lately.

Have been listening to Fowlty Towers, a very funny Brittish comedy originally on BBC TV, but put on tape and described. There are twelve parts, and it should be very enjoyable to listen to. The plot centres around a hotel called Fowlty Towers, funny because something always tends to go wrong with the hotel. The episodes follow all the misshaps, and all who can actually access the shows should get them and watch them.

Got an email from my dad today, and he had sent an email to one of the staff people about my situation concerning blood donation anonymously. They are having a blood drive at the squadron, and to get more people to donate, he told my story. It was very cool. Basically, if you haven't downated blood do it. I probably wouldn't be here without donated blood, a very good thing and better than drugs let me tell you. When you are low on blood and get a transfusion, it's instant the relief and warmth that you feel.

Well, more later at tea time and when I have this article written.

Sometimes I get e-mails from the old lead singer of Slipknot..

I just thought i'd say that because you said something about e-mails, and you seem like you need a comment.

As a devoted ner reader, I'd like to say that I've been subjected to subjected entries of less length and entertainment value.
I'd also like to say that I've subjected myself to rigors of blood donation and/or plasma sales numerous times. Folks, it's not that bad and they give you cookies. mmm cookies. so give blood. there's my endorsement. :)

Not only cookies but soda too. Or at least I got soda anyway...

You know, one cool thing is, when i got that blood, I couldn't help but think who it came from, like who was it, what were they like etc. And to think they are still out there somewhere.

I'll never voluntarily donate blood unless extremely necessary due to the fact that, ever since I had to get a blood test taken during which I fainted from the immediate loss of blood, I do not wish to volunatarily put myself through extreme dizziness followed by incoherent thoughts, extremely slurred thoughts, an erie cold feeling, blacking out, then regaining consciousness and saying "damn it, I'll never do that again. Ever."
