blogging while I donate blood

Sorry if this makes you squirm, but I'm typing w/ my right arm as my left pumps out 400ml of blood.The nurse is fascinated to say the least that I'm taking pics.I have a weakness w/ balloons but am fine w/ needles and blood. Call me strange but it's true.

Squirmiest mobile blogging post (or as the kids call it, mo blo po) ...ever.

Wah, rad, and good kid to be donating blood. As to the baloon fear, you ever read the book or watch the movie "IT" by Stephen King? Could be your explanation. They all float...

Sorry for the squirm! By the above explanation, I am in no hurry to read "IT" then. Sounds like it'd just make my balloon issue worse...

She's not kidding, look...

You're not strange. Balloons are scary, yo. It's more the anticipation than the actual popping, I think.

With my wife, it's butterflies. BUTTERFLIES!

kenketsu natsukashi~!
did you get a yuklt?
i haven't done that since i was in high school.
it's great to help people by what you can do with a light heart.

anyway, my friend ken emailed me this:

I was just browsing the web and stumbled upon
a tokyo based blog. What a small world!

mie-san & dav sugoine!!

Yeah, I think this whole blogging experience has shown me just how small the world can be (and big too if you wanna explore outwards...I mean, the variety of stuff you can find!). It is weird how the connections keep getting made. Or actually, they're already made; you just need to know about them. I understand why Friendster and LinkedIn were developed.

Ha ha, butterflies? That's tooo funny.

Blogging while donating blood? Not sure where to file that away in my brain...
You *are* dedicated, though.

Let me make a small request: If you wind up getting surgery any time soon, could you please *not* blog it?
(Not sure I could take that, especially since I often check your site during my lunch break.)

Hi Jim! But see...that's the thing. Blood doesn't bug me so I'd be soooo tempted to blog. Maybe I could put a cover warning...Tomorrow I have a much tamer appointment that should be more for your entertainment and kind of a risk for me. I'll blog it either way, but I could end of feeling pleased or quite embarrassed. I'll leave it at that. Otanoshimini!

Sorry forgot to put my name in when I posted, that "IT" post was by me T-T;

The ballon thing is pretty weird... Never heard that one b4! ;)
