Lean times. I donated plasma today. Couldn't think of a better way to get 20 bucks together. After a battery of questionnaires, I relaxed and alternated between a book on Zen and a wall-mounted TV as a machine slurped my blood through the eye of a needle. The entertainment was Goldmember, followed by Bringing Out The Dead. Whoever elected to show Bringing Out The Dead to a ward full of plasma donors gets a pat on the back from me. I've got an appointment to give some more on Friday. One of my job applications may bear fruit by then.
