Yesterday I gave platelets, which involves sitting in a chair and feeling your body slowly go all tingly while they pump your blood out then back into you.

The TV clicker was mostly broken, so I only managed about one channel change every five seconds. Surfing was out.

I did watch a dramatization of the Hitler assassination attempt, then a piece on the atomic bomb, including a (at least) 15' x 20' x 20' pile of high explosive used to calibrate the first bomb test.

Before that, our former Governor elect Mr. Rossi called for a re-vote, not being satisfied with the hand-recount as specified by the law... If we have another election, he'd damn well better be paying for the thing himself.

After they gave me my blood back, I got served juice by an unfailingly polite Japanese student. She couldn't bring be anything, or ask me if I wanted anything, without bowing at least three times to me before stepping away. Actually, painfully polite would be a better way of describing it.

Probably a perfect job for Japanese students, just enough public interaction for any language difficulties to not be a problem and quiet study time all rolled into one.
