page ten woot!!! I would've had this finished last night, but I donated blood yesterday, which was quite an adventure, and my arms were killing me.

Warning: the following ramble includes real life descriptions of blood. That freaks you out, don't read please!

So, when I give blood, they usually choose my right arm 'cause the vein is most visisble on that arm. I always look away whe they're putting the huge ass needle in, it's the only way I can get through that sort of thing, and suddenly I hear my nurse say "Oh no." I'm thinking, OH NO????? No no no, there's not s'posed to be an 'oh no.' I look over and see a puddle of blood running down my arm. I just look at it and strangly calm think to myself "that's not right..." Apparently when she went to pull her arm away, her sleeve caught on the clamp thingy on the tube attached to the needle, and pulled the needle out.

I would've thought that as much as the thought of real blood freaks me out, I would've been spazzing. But it didn't really faze me too much. You know how in stories, when someone gets cut, they "can feel the warmth of their blood seeping out." Nothing like that. Just the pain from the needle, and seeing the blood. So surreal.

So I went to the bathroom after they taped my arm up, came back and let them get my left arm done. No point in going through all the trouble of signing up and then not donating.

But I'd better be getting twice as much karma for that, dammit.

@Firestarkitten: Yeah, I've done that before. Randomly shouted something, then get stared at. Unlike Amanda though, I just laugh it off. But she's so cute and shy!

@Flaminbuns: I haven't had any really bad experiances with giving blood. As long as I have a soda and something sweet afterwards, I feel fine. Not even lightheaded! That's why I try to donate as often as I can.

Love the expressions on this page, especially Amanda's in the first panel. That's just too funny. If I ever did that, I'd definitely react like she did. ^^;;; Poor her.

And "oh no" is definitely not something you want to hear when they're syphoning blood out of you. I'd probably say something like "What do you mean 'oh no'?!" Though, upon seeing the blood on my arm I probably wouldn't think much of it. Probably about the same reaction you had.

Glad you like the expressions, I worked really hard on them!
