Missed it by that much.

This weekend was good, but no where near as productive as it needed to be. Saturday was the longest day of the year but it somehow got away from me... go figure. I went to see Get Smart on Friday and it was hilarious. I absolutely loved it! It made me miss the TV series like woah. There were so many throwbacks to the show, I think people who used to watch it will definitely have a greater appreciation for the movie. But even if you haven't seen the show, you can still enjoy the movie.

Saturday I gave blood and it took FUCKING FOREVER. It was so crowded! They've been showing commercials like 24/7 trying to get people to donate, so I guess it worked. (I guess they need blood to ship out to the flooded disaster areas.) But, damnit, I had an appointment that I showed up on time for. I had to wait like 45 minutes! Boo! Also, the lady I had kind of sucked and she was spilling my blood all over the place. WTF, stop gossiping and pay attention to what you're doing. Definitely the least impressive person I've had from the Red Cross so far. Next blood donation will be at Dragon*Con and I hope it's more reminiscent of 2007 than 2006 (aka worst donation experience ever).

I also got to visit with jadziadaxwb and _mendon (and Giselly Belly!) on Saturday which was good because I haven't seen them in awhile. But, I will be seeing them again this weekend, and then we have a date to see Wall-E next week. :) And then crazy con-going season starts. Shore Leave is less than a month away... holy shit. And D*C is a little over two months. And then summer is over... ack! WHERE DID SUMMER GO ALREADY!?

The rest of my weekend was spent doing school work (boo!) and getting ready for the tag (or yard or garage if you prefer) sale I'm having next weekend at my mom's house. Holy shit I am so far behind! I haven't even touched the basement yet. My room and a couple other small areas of my mom's house where I have stuff took up all my time this weekend. I can't believe how much garbage I have just in my bedroom. Hopefully the stuff in the basement won't be as hard to sort as the stuff in my room was. Gah. This is such a pain, but so totally necessary. I just wish I wasn't still running epically behind from this weekend. I'm going to be over there every night this week and when I'm not? I'm going to have to be baking for the bake sale we're also having that day. Epic projects... oy. Why do I procrastinate on them?

Ugh, I should finally come to grips with the fact that it's Monday and do some work. But first, I did that Fear Meme and as it turns out, I'm not as much of a wuss as I thought I was...

If you get more than 30, counseling is strongly recommended.
If you get more than 20, you’re paranoid.
If you get 10-20, you are normal.
If you get 10 or less, you’re fearless.
People who don’t have any are liars.

18/70 isn't bad... I added the two at the end because I didn't like that it wasn't an a round number. Also, I felt there were some serious fears that weren't addressed here.

Later, skaterz.

They spilled my blood all over the place when I was in high school. I'm not sure exactly what they did, but I heard someone saying "how are we going to clean this up?" rather loudly. Not exactly comforting.

I have a few random fears that aren't on that meme.

She was like struggling with the tubes they use for testing the blood or something. So annoying.

At least they were able to use my blood! It's a horrible feeling when they can't.

You donated blood? I will never have that sort of courage. I think you're insane. Nah, but it's something nice to do. =P

A couple years ago I'd never have imagined myself able to donate. Once when they took just a small amount at the doctor's office and I sobbed hysterically, including for half an hour after the fact. When I started thinking about nursing I realized this was a fear I was going to have to conquer... so I did! Now while it's not a particularly fun experience, I don't mind it or really get worked up at all. I think if I ever don't do it for any period of time that fear is going to build back up again, so I just have to keep conquering it.

wow..
i read one negative review of 'get smart', and changed my mind, but i loved the show, and i like anne hathaway, so maybe i should go...:P
some people didn't like the new 'indy' movie, i noticed, and i thought it was good, and my wife loved it. i think the problem is critics are too subjective, letting their own preferences and likes and dislikes cloud the objectivity.
