Was going to take a moment out to write yesterday about my two blood transfusions on Friday (#27 and #28, for a total of forty transfusions overall), and how I coped with the boredom by watching four episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender and catching up on my Coverville music podcasts. (Best cover of the lot: Jimi Hendrix's All Along the Watchtower. Most, um, odd: Paul Anka's Eye of the Tiger.) It was surprising that I needed the tranfusions at all, as I felt quite energetic. But numbers don't lie, and my hemogloblins were low.

Anyway, the reason I didn't write about this yesterday is that I spent all day in bed. I woke up with a sore throat, a stuffy nose, a mild fever, and the sensation of my brain loosely floating in my skull and occasionally banging against the sides. So now we're off to the hospital, and I get to miss the last two films I wanted to see at the Fantasia film festival. I'm not sure which irks me more.

you're like the third person to positively mention Avatar. I suppose I have to cave and watch it now. Perhaps on my laptop during my next apheresis donation.

Hope your fever breaks soon!
