Ask me how giving blood went yesterday. Go on, ask me.
I dare you.
IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!!! I stupidly believed myself when I said yesterday it definitely would. A combination of a phlebotomist shortage and people reeling after donating their pint meant they were snowed under and we'd have to try again next time.Tried booking me in for next Thursday at 6pm. This will be 2 hours after the end of the Even Bigger Show. I'm tempted to do it as some kind of scientific experiment. Plus after 80 hours on air I'll be ready for a biscuit.
I've neglected the gym recently. That's not true. The gym's fine with or without me in it. But you know what I mean. The reasons I haven't been is 87% laziness, 9% biggest show planning, 7% sundry activities and 3% bad maths. Went today and killed both myself and a rowing machine. (So tempted for a 'we had a row' pun but I wont).
Shopped after the gym. We all know both my views and tactics on shopping. I got confused by bacon. I needed bacon. There's so much variety though. In the end I went for the cheap cooking bacon. As oppose to the non cooking bacon kind? Told you I was confused. Decided to get the bus home. Managed to bang my head going up the stairs. It still staggers me that I've known about my height for many years and yet still forget to duck. And you can't really pretend you meant to do it. Neither is there an acting option. You know like when you run for a bus and it pulls off just as you get to the stop so you keep running as if that was what you were doing anyway. Or when you wave at someone across the street then realize it's not who you thought so you pretend it's an elaborate head scratching technique you've developed. No, when it comes to banging your head you just have to stand there like a tall idiot who forgot to duck. I want that on my gravestone: 'He forgot to duck.'
Both carrier bags (shopping and gym stuff) I had decided to break so when I disembarked I had sweaty socks and cooking bacon trying to escape as I tried to keep hold of everything and nurse my bumped head. To make matters worse my laces were undone. I've mentioned before the inability of my laces to stay tied but how can they come undone just sat on a bus? I'm not sure I should be allowed out really.
Anyway, I'm home now with my high ceilings and my slippers on.
