Donated blood today and feel sleepy and stoned. My brother wants me to drink a beer, so I shall.

Discovered by talking to students outside of my Spanish class that Calvert is apparently thee worst Spanish teacher to take evur. I find him hilarious, but I hear that it comes down to his horrible tests, of which I have one tomorrow AND Monday.

Was terrified to see that I didn't have a harmonic notation test today, but a SIGHTSINGING. I have never even LOOKED at the material. You can bet your bottom dollar that I was flabberghasted when I got a 100%. Just imagine solfeggio coming out of my mouth and a VERY perplexed look crossing my face as I went through it. I have been so worried about doing horrible in this class, when every single time I tested, I get an A. Received back my interval quiz (95%) and my melodic dictation (100%). Maybe I shall pool all my extra credit, then, into music theory or maybe even piano.

Was a cashier at the jazz festival. It was adorable, seeing all those high schoolers singing on stage in their precious little outfits. I even got to leave 45 min early to donate blood. A guy from my psych class last quarter was right after me, so we chatted about what a wonderful teacher Dr. Kathy is.

Apparently, I carry a woozy gene that causes me to get head rushes and (possibly) pass out after donating blood. The first time I donated, back in '94 in St. Paul, MN, I stood up and promptly passed out, but I had accredited it to not eating all day. I had a lot of protein today and little caffeine, and stuffed myself full of carby goodness last time, and both times I felt FUNKAY after finishing. Makes me feel silly as they're all pawning over me, handing me glasses of juice and cookies, but they say they have giant linebackers of men pass out completely on them all the time.

I was also apparently quite sleepy this morning, as I accidentally locked my last post so no one could comment. Woops.

I -wish- I could give blood, but since I nearly pass out after giving it at the doctor's, and the fact that I've been in Scotland too long (it accumulates over visits, the scare of mad cow disease), I don't. I do feel I do other things that improve others' quality of life though. Like hugs. Or laughter.

Woo! Way to go on the music class. That is terrific!

You should have asked me!! Calvert is awful. I hated every minute of his class.

You aren't the only one...I tend to drop like a stone (or feel like it) after giving blood. Then again, I'm not a fan of the "my-blood-leaving-my-body-through-a-tube-into-a-bag" tthing. Yes, i have very very specific phobias, considering that blood on it's own doesn't bother me.

How can there be enough stuff to test you on after the weekend? That is nuts.

Also, I love donating blood and getting piercings, but when they take that tiny vial at the doctor's office to test, I freak out. weird?

My ex, who's a doctor, always passes out after giving blood, so don't feel bad.

I wish I could still give blood, but I have heart-related chest pain from mitral valve prolaspse (a benign, common heart condition), so they won't let me give blood for fear I'll code while I'm donating.

You know I could have swon I commented to one of these posts with a napster bad reference but I don't see it...

Anyway, I remember there being something about your blood? not only just the need to have a lower sugar intake but anemia or something? Can't remember, all of those would effect you when you give blood too.


Ok I'm going to leave the office... and do work, now that I've found one of my favorite songs is named Waffle.
