Just one day left of the workweek, whoo-hoo...

     The bus was super crowded Wednesday afternoon, and I and the last guys on would have had to stand--except for the college kids that insisted on us taking their spots. Always a delight to see there's still some courtesy left in the world--especially in the younger folk!

     Wednesday night, I finished my hyarmi essay illustrations at last. Feels good to have that off my list!

     Today, I find myself very grateful for second chances. The first came at my blood donation appointment today. They took my hemoglobin; I was too low. But the supervisor came over and said that now that they were using a new testing method (rather than the centrifuge hematocrit method) they were allowed to take multiple samples. And on the second try, I passed! Hurrah--1st of 3 donations done for 2008!

     My second second chance was with getting me a 'Burnt Sugar' PoadTM. I'd been really bummed that I missed out last Thursday by such a short margin--60 seconds faster and I might have made it before they sold out. So getting a second chance today, much sooner than I ever expected, made my afternoon...though I did get literally faint from overexcitement, thanks to having just given blood!

Glad you were able to give blood. I am giving on Sunday.
Good to know you are done with hyarmi illustrations. Hopefully we will get to
see them soon.

Hope Friday goes well for you.

Happy to hear you've got a donation coming!

Technically, they're all in place and 'unlocked' already--I'm making the 'announcement' on the weekend.

Me too! We're extremely short-staffed today, even worse than Thursday.

Congratulations! That's wonderful news. I have my first appointment in the next fortnight.

Courtesy is a wonderful thing.

Yay! I'm really hoping I hit the 4-gallon mark at some point this year...

It is indeed!

Huzzah on finishing hyarmi illustrations! *beams* You're such a wonderfully, dedicated person.

And huzzah on second chances and being allowed to give blood after all too! ^-^

Heh, thanks. Though I keep telling you it should be spelled 'O-b-s-e-s-s-e-d'! ;)

I'm SO happy about that!

Wait...you literally fainted??? Eeks!!

Hope you're feeling better now...but you really should avoid "literally fainting" in the future, k?

Miss you!

No, no no--'literally faint' not faintED. Though that would have been rather funny. ;P

Hope everything's going well with the foursome! (I'm starting to think Mikey will 'get' the toilet thing before Elly. ;)

Phew!! I missed the little "get" before the literally faint...
