I like to take photos of things. Mostly peoples. Mostly pretty peoples, if I'm honest. But sometimes toys, or dogs, or maybe a tree. Y'know, interesting stuff.
I shoot a few burlesque shows, but that's just to kill time between photoshoots with models, where I can control the light and the pose and the magic.
My photos will have the tag "my photo". Otherwise, it's stolen from the vast wilderness that is the internet. I usually source pics from Model Mayhem, Flickr or We <3 it.
You wanna look me up elsewhere?
I’ve tried to get them to go give blood.
We don’t have a fixed donating centre in this town, so we rely on the donation bus arriving every 6 months.
It’s in town yesterday, today and tomorrow.
I’ve managed to talk a few folk into going, one of them….has Type O- blood! But he doesn’t donate because he thought they’d turn him away because of all the weed he smokes!
What with Sophie’s birthday, and us having guest stay for a week ( 4 adults, 2 babies under 1, a 5 year old and a 9 year old, all crushed into a tiny top floor, two bed flat! ) I almost forgot about the blood donation centre being in my town.
Tonight is the last night for it, so I’ve started drinking water and I’ll head over after work.
I’m concerned they might knock me back because it hasn’t the full 3 months since my last donation. :(
And since the other day I was reading up on my blood type ( I’m A rhD Negative, which is sorta rare…only about 15% of folk have that type…but it’s not a problem, I can still take blood from A, B or O not a problem. So don’t you go losing any sleep over little ol’ me! ) so I asked the boss what his blood type was.
He said he didn’t know, and he didn’t care.
1) he’s afraid of needles,
2) he’s gay, so he can’t give blood.
This was news to me, but yea, a google confirms it. They don’t want Homo-Blood (tm)! Flat out, they just don’t want it. The logic seems to be that The Gays are more likely to get HIV. From my understanding of it ( which may be wrong ), HIV was just as easy to catch from hetrosex, piercings, tattoos and injecting le heroin.
Fair enuff, stop the junkies from giving blood. But even tattoo’d and pierced folk can donate again after a spell.
I don’t know why, but this kinda wound me up.
This is her….a limited edition from KidRobot.
I should set an ebay alert for her, but I’m afraid as to how much I would pay for her. I guarantee it’d be more than I have to spare!
( also, click though. The photo is fucking huge! Don’t know who took it, but well done, good sir/madam. I applaud you! )
