Stupid body  
I had an apointment to go donate blood in downtown Pomona today. Unfortunatly i forgot the directions at home when i left for work. I left work at 5:30 to get home and get the directions, and managed to find the donation place on the second pass and got there just a little after 7. Unfortunatly they were doing it at a church, which was annoying =P

I had to argue with the nurse setting me up to get her to use the side vein rather than the main one. =P Then when i was done i felt a little feint even though i'd made sure to have lunch today. This is the second time in a row that it's happened, and i'm annoyed at my body about it. I'm oping it's something specific i can figure out, because it was much better when i could donate and just not worry about it.

Hey, Shawkial, Gwri, did i look _that_ obvious about being feint the time i donated blood with you guys? I didn't feel _very_ bad this time, but almost immediatly two or three nurses came over and started asking me if i was alright and giving me cold compress things =P They made me stay there for ten or fifteen minutes until they though i looked better.

Why is it annoying that it was at a church?

*blinks* wow! when did you start paying attention to LJ again? :)

Um, cause it's in a church! ick! No like churches!

I just dislike the whole judeo-christianity thing enough that being in a church annoys me.

<curious>What is it particularly about "the whole judeo-christianity thing" that you dislike? Do Judaism and Christianity both squick you? </curious>

I'd be annoyed too. Churches, temples, mosques, etc. are fine for those who want them, but having to be inside them often makes me physically ill.

If others want to worship a deity whose own works pain him as evil, that's their business. But I'd rather stay away most of the time. My Gods, the Bible itself paints Lucifer as a better being than God - who is a mass-murdering jerk who gets his jollies off by showing off his power.

I really have no idea why religious people try to encourage others to read the Bible. I think the Bible is the best argument against following its principles.

Yeah, what she said :)

Generally, the church has been responsible for more bad than good throughout history, and most of the various branches preach things i disagree with, ranging from mild to vehement depending on the issue.

Also, churches are meant as places of brainwashing and conversion, which i don't really agree with, so it makes me feel uncomfortable beign inside of one.

Hmm..see, I have more problems with the followers then the buildings. They're great performance spaces for the most part...and I did grow up as a theater geek in an old church. So as long as there's no service (or brainwashing, whichever) going on, I'm pretty good in a church. Especially if it's something as important as donating blood or whatever.

It was a little obvious. They always make you stay for fifteen minutes. At least they're supposed to.
