I gave blood.... and nearly passed out

Today I gave blood and found myself nearly passing out. it was quite the experience for it had been a long time since I had given blood. I was still back in community college when I last gave blood and that was over 4-5 years ago! There was a blood drive at my nearby bank and there I met the now retired chief of police of my city and a fellow woman from my women's group that I am in. Its always fun being in a small (ish) town because you'll never know who'll you'll bump into

Now it has been a while (at least 5 years as I've said before) since I have given blood and that might have been a part of it. Needless to say it was an interesting experience. I think what did me in was when I bent over to grab a Gatorade out of the cooler and then black spots and flushed face hit my out of no where. It was kinda funny afterwards because I had called out for help and three of the men in the bus took me over to an open seat and layed me down with a cool cloth. Afterwards when i felt better one of the men told me "He was proud of me because many never make it that far to ask for help. They'll just suddenly hear a *THUMP* and there they are on the floor out cold" LOL.

I remember a story a guy told me one time years ago when I was waiting that he and his girlfriend gave blood and waited for the 10 mins afterwards. and everything seemed fine, but the second she opened the door to go out she just blacked out and face planted. (that would not be fun to wake up to LOL I think of the scene from the A-Team movie when B.A. wakes up after being drugged out by Murdock)

Now I'm waiting for the website BloodSource.org to send me my activation email so i can update my rewards points and see what i might be able to redeem them for.

Hairband Fun

Went out the mall yesterday and spent a long, fun time in my favorite store there: Fuego
http://www.shopfuego.com/

This store is the perfect combination of Nerdy and Bohemian-chic. (I also happen to get most of my Dad's side of the family White Elephant Christmas gifts there ^^U)

So while I was browsing around I found an AWESOME galaxy themed headband on sale!
(Similar to this but more pinks/purples and planets on it)

And so it got me thinking about how fun it would be now that its practically summer weather (even though were just going to be entering spring properly -_-U) that it would be fun to get more of those types of headband that wrap around the top but hand long in the back


My debate is if it will look good with my short hair 0.o? Maybe if I got one (or made one) that's not as thick across the top and thinner down the side. Hmmmm, welp we'll just have to wait and see won't we ;)

Back At It!

I'm back at it and hopping in whole heartedly! Whatever comes across my mind it'll probably end up here in one shape or form. So hold on folks, Its Show Time!
