Quick, the connection hasn't stalled for minutes, try updating the log.

This week my connection speed has been consistently less than one kilobyte per second.
Hi-5 were at the blood bank when I was donating plasma on Thursday. Tim and Nathan had finished when I got there and they were being all supportive to Kellie, who fainted when she stood up after donating, and Charli, who lay there saying "It hurts. It hurts." and eventually didn't fill her bag. Kathleen, on the other hand, was strolling around mentioning how she had had no trouble and being told to go away by everyone else (or "Piss off. You freak me out." as Charli put it).
Dan brought boxes of Japanese food over to Dawn's place last night. We had sashimi and soba and green tea ice cream and yan-yan and happy pandas and white rabbits and green tea and barley tea and played Mah Jong with Japanese rules. (The alleged Japanese rules were based on my memory of reading it in a book and talking about it to Lucy once.) That was excellent.
World Cup Final guess: Brasil 3:2 Germany.
