Monday Madness

I woke up early this morning to bravely face the disaster that is going to happen to me: taking my annual check-up at the hospital.

Which usually means blood tests.

So there I was, bravely waiting for the call, so like a soldier waiting for the command to charge and storm the bunker, never knowing if you're gonna buy the farm or not ( read: military term of going to die ). Then, after like centuries have passed by, my name was called and I courageously step up to the chair, let my hands be binded by rubber and then let it be stucked by a needle.

And all I can do is not scream like a baby girl.

In all my life, I can't stand needles. It took all of my natural and supernatural powers to ignore the needle protuding in my arm while it sucked the blood out of me. And this went on for a two minutes, though it felt like a lifetime. Can you imagine sitting there and forcing yourself not to look because you know if you do, you might just shake your arm free and break the needle...
Brrr, I don't even want to think about it.

Then it was over. I got up with a wan smile on my face while the nurse ( she's actually very pretty; she's one of the reasons I acted up the brave one lest she think of me as a wuss, hehe ) told me to come back for the results later.

Office duties started, still boring as hell since these months are usually lean months. After lunch the results arrived and to my relief, my blood sugar is normal! No diabetes for another year! w00t! But my cholesterol is on borderline, and it's probably time to cut down on the meat. What's weird is that trigyceride is way above normal. What the hell is a trigyceride? It's like 50% more than the average. Hmmm, I hope it's not bad as tommorow we'll bring the results to our doctor and see what happens.

Anyways, scanning to my cousin Kay's blog, I found this site where you type your name and see what happens. Judging by her results, no wonder she was pissed off. Mine's cool, had like very nice compliments and stuff, and to wit:

Hehe, I like mine, even if half of it are not true. I particularly like 6th one, about the mis-summoning of jackals ( weird stuff ) for it's presumably fantasy take and me holding a secret rocket launcher and being the most dangerous one of all ( how cool is that ). Perhaps the one that struck me the most is " Arsenio is the nicest bartender ". Talk about metaphors. In the sense, I'm like a bartender ( without the bar, duh! ) who listens to people everyday, with compunctions and seeing both sides at all. Just like the proverbial barman who listens to the guys on the barstools and then giving his take on the issue at hand. That's what I wanna achieve ( just to clarify: not bartending! ), meaning I'm here, always here to listen but don't expect me to take sides.

Sometimes, being on the fence does help people open communications, no matter how preposterous it sounds.

Ah well...
