Keep Refrigerated

Yesterday I cleaned out the refrigerator at work. It was gross with no room in it so I left a sign on it Monday saying anything left Friday after 1:00 p.m. would be thrown away. Friday at 2 p.m. it was still full.

There is a 35 lb weight limit for the garbage cans. I filled up 6 garbage cans. There were a couple things only a day or two old. I decided it wasn't my problem if they couldn't read. The oldest thing I noticed was a container of yogurt that expired over a year before.

When I went back in the break area a couple hours later it kind of smelled. I'm glad the cleaning crew was showing up for work. The should be able to take care of things.

I forgot to take the bleach wipes we have to work but at least the refrigerator is now empty.

Mosquito Food

Every couple weeks at work the Puget Sound Blood Center shows up looking for more blood. Signs are posted around work and emails are sent out looking for victims. Despite claiming they want your blood they don't make it easy.

First you need to be healthy, including no colds in the last few days. Then they ask you all kinds of questions about where you've been and who you've been with. At least they settle for the answers on the written sheet now rather than asking you everything again verbally like they used to.

I paid them a visit today. She wanted to know how much I exercise because my pulse was so low. I told her I figure you only have so many heart beats in life and I don't want to use them up. When they looked for a vein they remarked that I was genetically bred to donate. After they took a pint from me, my arm was wrapped in green tape in honor of St Patrick's day.

Under Construction

Still under construction. Trying to get all the cogs and gears to mesh.
