Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

There's a place in my town that buys blood plasma, but just the plasma... they cool it for storage, filter it, then put the red cells and some saline back in, at which point it's almost literally putting ice water in your veins. A gaming buddy of mine did that for a while when he was between jobs and he looked like a damn zombie after his donations, which could be up to 10 times a month for like $30 bucks a shot.


Sounds...painful. Also, 10 times a month? Don't they have quotas on how often one can donate and stay healthy? :huh:

Yeah, but putting the cells back raises the recovery rate significantly which is why they do it. Plasma is much more easily replaced than blood as a whole.

Wow, it's been a while sense I posted here, but I guess it's something I need to get off my chest now. ;_;

Just recently, I ended a friendship that I felt I needed to end because of how strenuous it was getting. But because of how I ended it and how I worded it, I came across colder and more like a jerk than I intended. *sigh* I just hope that my former friend is going to be okay and I wish that I had worded it better when I ended it. I don't want to come across as cold and like a jerk when people hear about me. ;_;

Are you sure you're not just being too hard on yourself? There's never a easy or painless way to end things with someone you actually care about so there's bound to be negativity involved no matter what you do. Sounds to me like you did the best you could, which is about all you can really hope for. :shrug:

Frankly, nephew and niece are a bunch of lazy fucks who expect me to be their goddamn manservant... and I can't yell at them to get their fucking asses off and do something like cleaning up their own room and wash their own dishes. This is why I feel more like I'd rather eat alone than with them.
