Blood drive was a washout. I couldn’t park near the GT student center,
so I had to park halfway across campus and walk. By the time I finally
got over there, they were turning people away. Sigh. Maybe I’ll drive
out to the Red Cross place on Saturday. I’d like to be giving as close
to the maximum as I can, 6 times a year or so.

Since I’m on campus anyway, I’m now in WREK digitizing music into
automation. I’m exercising my personal agenda, and only spending time
on the Cajun and Zydeco things in the queue. I e-mailed a bunch of
Cajun labels to get them to send us stuff, and MTE Records was the
only one to really respond, sending us 20 releases or so. At least 6
or 7 of those were programmed, with more still getting worked on, so
it payed off for everyone involved, really. I’m rocking out right now
to Aldus Roger and the Lafayette Playboys. I met my share of Cajun
playboys in my time in Lafayette.

I’ll be leaving work a little early and giving blood at Georgia
Tech. I’ve been getting back in the habit of doing this regularly. I
used to do it like clockwork but fell away a little. I’ve moved and
lost cards and such, but if you add up all my donations over the last
15 years, I’ve got to be in the several gallons of blood given. Since
I have no problem with it and never have. I in fact give the blood so
well that I used to race my friends – I can give a pint in a few
minutes and if I really pump my fist I can make the tube wiggle like a
firehose. Might as well do my civic duty.
