Blood!

Gave the Red Cross 500mls of blood. Haven't donated for a while but actually remembered to bring my donor card. Blood pressure is now 133/78. When they found out that I've been in the US earlier in the year, they marked my blood to be screened for something called West Nile Virus.

The Blood Bank in Canberra was always full of high-tech gadgetry and since I was there last they've acquired these machines to extract plasma. And the funny machines that used to wobble the bag of blood now give digital readouts.

Homer and I took the office youngster along as a first timer but it became embarrassing for him when the nurses couldn't find any veins in his arm.

It's really sad that Homer is selling up and moving to Canada. There goes my last real friend.
