The penny tells all

I'm anemic, so says the penny. Apparently if you're anemic and you rub copper against you're skin then it'll leave a black streak while on normal people it leaves a white streak. Something about how the copper draws out the iron, I don't know. But low and behold a black streak appeared when a penny was rubbed on my face. I thought they stopped making pennies out of copper...oh well, anyway I'm kind of dissapointed.

I mean there are tons of anemic people out there in the world, it's become extremely common. If I have to have a disease it might as well be something extremely rare and unheard of. Hmm, I guess for now I'll have to live with my overly ordinary disease and see what the doctors say tomorrow.
Sweet dreams and don't let the bed bugs bite!


If you're wondering if I want you to

This song will not leave my head. River Cuomo's voice keeps repeating this one line that goes, "Girl, if you're wondering if I want you to, I want you to! I swear it's true, without you my heart is blue...."
I've gotten really into Weezer lately, oh, and Metric. Both on them are on complete ends of the music spectrum but still amazing. Hmm, well there isn't much to say...oh! But Bones starts again this Thursday and then a new Degrassi on Friday! This week looks promising. My school has two meets too, one on Thursday, one Saturday, it's going to be pretty exciting.
Sorry I'm not my usual rambling self, I'm just way too tired for comfort and soon I may find out why. The doctors think there's something wrong with me so I have to get my blood drawn, again. That or they enjoy repeatedly subjecting me to blood tests. I think they're vampires. I mean really, what do they do with all that blood once the tests have been ran?
The world may never know...

Okay I've officially gone through an entire box of tissues and also a little travel pack with pictures of Snoopy on it. I'm halway through a new box, delightful, huh? Oh the joys of being sick. My voice is getting better though. I woke up this morning the sound of my mother's laughter as small paws eagerly trampled over my face. "It's already five thirty, you over-slept," she tells me, so I scoot the dog aside and sit up and open my mouth to tell her thanks for waking me up but I can't utter a sound.

Well, actually, that's a lie. I manage this pathetic, hoarse whisper. Alarmed by my lack of voice and ability to breath through my nose she ordered me back to bed. I can actually talk now but it's much easier to whisper. Ugh, I'd rather be at school. It's such a beautiful day, being stuck inside watching old, black-and-white serial killer movies isn't what I had in mind for the start of my weekend. But oh well, that's life. We're having a garage sale tomorrow for my friend, Brittany. It's a long story but I think it'll be fun. Anyway I have to go and post flyers before my parents come home and see that i'm not curled up the covers.

Bye for now.

Mystery Meats

Today during lunch somehow we ended up discussing what pepperoni and salami were made of. So, naturally, having been raised mostly in the twenty-first century, I googled it. Finally, the answer! Waverly Smithers was right, since she said they were made of pork. Salami is made of pork, while Pastrami is made of beef, and Pepperoni is made of beef and pork. Fascinating, huh?
The we were talking about what was made from pigs, like ham, bacon, and well, pork. sausage is made of beef though, oh haha and according to google it's also made of pork. Smithers, you win =]
