Anyone else watching the gold medal game? Not a lot of olympic buzz on the forums which surprises me considering quite a few of us are proud Canadians.

I watched it too! Man, were you tense too when the US scored 55 seconds before the end?

Go Canada! :)

I didn't watch it. I'm not much into sports, and I really don't care who wins.

Not really a sports fan, either, but I have heard some interesting things. The Olympics sure got off to a dangerous start this year... :shock:

I try keeping my hockey enthusiasm to as little as possible around here, but GO CANADA!

I'm not much of a sports fan either, I normally cheer for the majority of cheering people..

What are the bets that someone else will suddenly 'remember' having been assaulted?

I've know this man from ever since I was a little kid. He's a kind and generous man who wouldn't hurt a fly. I refuse to believe there is any truth in such claims. Where have these people been for the last 40 years if it's affected them so much? I'm convinced that this is a wicked, malicious lie, as his opinions have not always been popular. It's a good thing the other elderly priest died recently- they didn't have time to cook up a charge against him.

I'm afraid I'm going to be very disagreeable company for the foreseeable future. I'll still haunt the forum, but I won't be posting very often for a while.

I just got a new laptop today; my old one died and went to Laptop Heaven. :cry: Well, technically, it can still be repaired, but for a bit of a price; getting a new one is cheaper.
The keyboard system is a little...different...so it'll take a while to adjust to...

Sigh. Next week's my school's annual blood drive, and this year I'm old enough to donate. Though, in the end, I probably won't, as much as I'd honestly like to. I just can't wait for a whole of week of people making fun of me because I'm afraid of the needle.

I'm not afraid of the little pinch. I know it won't hurt. I just...I have this thing against needles that might border on an actual phobia. Mix it with blood, and you've got a panic attack.

Well from someone who has given blood (to myself) before, I'd say to tighten your gut and give it a go. The pain isn't that bad, and you don't really feel the blood pumping out of you or anything. You may feel light-headed afterward though.

I've had blood taken multiple times. Its barely a pinch. It is a small sting but it only lasts for a couple seconds. If you look in the other direction and think about something else you forget its even happening.

Yeah. I've had blood tests before, and I've always been uncomfortable. Just recently, however, the discomfort has mounted into pure fear. I know it's an irrational fear, but I feel it's something rooted deeply into my mind, if that makes any sense. It's not even the blood or the pain that bothers me. It's something else entirely, and I don't know exactly what it is. Suddenly, the mere thought of a needle can make a wreck of me. I start touching my face an arms, my breath becomes short, I feel like actually breaking out into tears. Hopefully, I can start getting over it.

My parents don't want to give me permission to donate this year, anyway, after discussing it with them. Perhaps by next year, I'll feel comfortable enough to actually take part.

I thinks its the strange feeling of being jarred with an object that makes people uncomfortable. A couple years ago I had blood taken from a new nurse. Needless to say she stabbed me three times before finding the vein. I think thats when I overcame the fear.

The thing that bothers me is the idea of that sharp object going into your artery/vein and sucking out the blood. I always feel like passing out BEFORE a blood test lol. Yes, I'm a wuss.

I'm super excited, I might be directing the climax of Wait Until Dark for a drama project. Stage version, of course. :D
