losing my lap top, home and organs!!

I'm writing this this weeks update via my ipod touch due to being a homeless bum with no lap top. Where do I EVEN begin???

So Wednesday 8th April begins. I awake, roll over and pick up my lap top and switch on. At this point I realize the ink has run down all over my screen and its completly cracked beneeeth. There was just nothing left. How this has occurred I do not know, but the lap top was dieing anyway. So I sighed and looked into buy a mac, because everyone I know who has had one has owned them for decades and they still work. One of my ex's threw one out of his bedroom window and it didnt even have a scratch on it and worked perfectly well. Along with my long line of apple products these days I decide its the best to purchase one these amazing indestructable inventions.

Later that day I was due to meet with my roommates and my landlord to discuss extending the lease. It was 6pm and my roommate hadn't returned home, and the doorbell rang and it was my landlord. Me and Jake tried calling Steve countless times but he wouldn't pick up. In the mean time I had the landlords 5 year old girl tell me how she used to live in the house and how they wanted to move back here as 'mummy and daddy fight a lot in the new house'' and how she had her own room in this house. Talk about akward. She then made me guess her favorite Disney character, she looked confused and nearly had a fit when I guessed snow white and the cartoon characters from my days as a child. Eventually she got annoyed and told me she liked Hannah Montannah, (whoever that is), who turns out to not even be a cartoon character??? She's some 16 year old spoilt slutty pop star who has lots of cash and can have anything she wants. What wonderful examples of society we show our kids these days.

Anyway my landlord tells us he's moving his family back in, and with no sign of Steve, he leaves. Jake eventually gets hold of Steve and informs me that Steve is in PRISON!!!!! Apparantly he's missed a gazillion court dates, continued to drive without insurance or a liscence and owes $10,000 to the state in fines and tickets.

So what a wonderful day it turned out to be. But for some reason, it didn't phase me, any of it. I just shrugged it off and thought ''it'll be ok'', I quite like the fact that very little seems to phase me. However then I switched on Marley and Me and weeped like a BITCH when that stupid dog dies at the end. I don't even like dogs?? Why am I caring more about this stupid animal than my living situation?? *sigh*

So now I have to sort out my living situation which looks like the hotel. Hopefully if I can stay to the end of the lease end of May I can take my colleagues Sandra's old room in the hotel. I'll be helping them out with occupancy and bringing money to the hotel so its all good, and will only be there for 8 weeks before I fly home! I can't believe its only 15 weeks until I fly home to sunny England!! Get the parties starting!!!

I also need to get back to rock clubs as soon as I'm home. I'm currently enjoying the sounds of Britney Spears and Beyonce. This is terrible. I need some grunge and rock back into my life before its too late. Need to get back to my roots. Its funny how I'm more worried about fictional dead dogs and my declinging music taste than my laptop and homelessness. meh.

My parents come out on Friday, we're having a lovely weekend in Chicago and then the rest of the week in sunny Schaumburg with a possible trip to Wisconsin. I'm renting a car and showing them the sites, so brace yourself America, David is on the road!!!!

I've finished Twilight and all ready to read the next one. I'm sending Twilight home with my mum to read, but I'm so worried she may leave my dad after reading it. You see Edward Cullen is the msot perfect man in the entire world than no man will match up to him after that. I'm getting picky myself!! Just try to remember, he's fictional!!! He doesn't exsist. Believe me I've looked.

A lot of discussion seems to be about organ donation at the moment. It seems to be on the internet on tv and all around us. My personal belief is that when a person dies, they should automatically have the right to ownership of those organs stricken from them. You don't need them. They didn't make you as a person! There should at least be an opt out option rather than a sign up! But I believe its a selfish act that if once your dead you wont give up a life saving organ which is useless to you to give someone else a chance at a life.

I was shocked and appauled in October when I went to get my State of Illinois ID, the woman behind the counter asked me if I'd like to be a doner. I said of course! She looked at me like I'd just taken a piddle on the floor right in front of everyone. She asked ''are you sure?'', i said ''of course I'm sure, as long as I'm dead, they can take what the hell they want''. She then went onto tell me a story about how some doctors dont wait until your dead and if your a vegetable they just end your life. I explained I'd rather be dead and someone else have life than be a vegetable. She ended the the interview process by explaining that England could have my organs but she wasn't risking the US having them. I thoguht she was joking until I got my ID and noticed she hadn't said I wanted to be a doner. I was so mad. I sure hope its her begging for an organ one day. She certainly ain't getting mine now eh?

Anyways 2 months later I went to renew my ID and had a nicer woman ask me if I wanted to donate them. She completed my application and ticked the doner box and a month later I got a letter from Jesse White Secretary of State thanking me for my organs.

A friend and colleague of mine recently nearly lost her mother to a lung disease. She had her life saved by an organ transplant, and now you wouldn't even know she had ever been ill.

I ure every single one of you to sign up today to be a doner!

The great thing its charity which you don't have to pay up until your dead so its win win! I see it as a last ditch attempt to get into heaven if you've been a bit of a prick all your life!! You meet St Peter at the gate and he's like ''ok then so why should you get in'' and you can reply ''well I've just saved someones life'', and Peter says ''ok please come in''! That puts you ahead of than say... the pope!

Anyways that is my week. An exciting one to say the least. Hopefully I'll be in a better state and more stable possition for my next post. My parents are out next week, apparantly my dad's already out buying cow boy hats to fit in, I don't know where he thinks i've moved to. Texas maybe? Ah parents eh? bless em.

Take care my blessed readers, and remember, give up your organs TODAY! ok maybe not today, but at least sign up ready to hand them over when you do decide to pop your clogs. I should surely have my seat in heaven reserved for saving several lives through this post *nods*

Night all!!
