Perspectives, money and dates

So, I've been thinking recently about different peoples perspectives on things. . .about how one person can bitch to their friends about something that someone/people have done to them and their friends would be all sympathetic and understanding and such but if they were the other people bitching to their friends and saying why they'd done said thing, their friends would still be understanding. . .why is it that people have to bitch about each other instead of just seeing things from the other person's perspective? But then, I guess if we could get people to do that then we would have world peace. . .And something tells me that George W. Bush will never be able to see things from Iraq's perspective. . .or from homosexual's perspective either. . .
And on the random thoughts section, why is it that Doctors and Dentists are so f@*#ing expensive? $50 usually just to have some person with a degree poke around in your mouth for 5seconds and tell you that you have to go see someone else who's going to cost you even more money. . .how is that fair? And isn't good health and teeth something that is a mark of a good society rather than a third world country, so therefore shouldn't Governments ensure that their citizens have help with going to see Dentists and doctors rather than spending 5million odd dollars on stupid rugby stadiums or yachts? (sorry, in case you can't tell, I'm having a slight bitch at the NZ Government's priorities). . .
ANYWAY. . .so The Date is approaching fast (2 weeks and 4 days to be exact) and Si is getting rather nervous. . .me on the other hand. . .not so much. . .see, I don't know; everyone keeps telling me about what a big deal this is and stuff, but I just don't see it as such. . .I'm helping a good friend live a better life and apart from that, I think I'm just thinking about it in terms of the little steps. . .you know, it's just a trip to the hospital for some tests and then it's just being admitted for a couple of days and then just a little surgery. . .not that big a deal. . .I mean, I know I'm losing a kidney and all, but a person can survive on one kidney without any hassles. . .I mean, some people are even born with only one kidney. So it just doesn't seem like that big a deal for me. . .is there something wrong with me? Should I be worried or more nervous than what I am? Or is it ok that I'm not? I mean, I have thought through the consequences and stuff. . .it's not like I'm just entering into this blind. . .I'm just not worried about it. . .strange. . .oh well, have to go get ready for my other job now. . .(which by the way, I only have 2 shifts left for, yay me!)

freakin out...

I am aware that this opperation is a good thing, but i have to admit i have my worries (as co-wife would say i was born to worry) but i think that i have everyright to have issues. I'm not that good with sick people... i can get pretty ratty actually but i'm going to have to deal with two sick people, both of which will be too sick for me to be allowed to inflict violence on! I think that i will ask both of there doctors for sedatives so i can just dope them up. It might be our only chance of survival.

more reasons why I don't understand Blogs. . .and another Kidney update

Hi all. . .I remembered another reason why I just don't get blogs. . .they are an ONLINE DIARY. . .surely those two things just don't go together? After all, Online implies public - Diary implies private. . .putting something private into a public setting just seems strange to me. . .I mean; it's either one or the other right?
And as for the kidney. . .waiting on result's of SR's echo to see if he's still healthy enough before confirming the date. .
Right; gotta get back to work. . .AAARGGGHHH; working for "The Man" is BORING!!
