A few years ago, the medical field had high hopes for fake blood
substitutes, which were universally compatible and had a three year
unrefridgerated shelf life. That's a lot more than can be said about the
regular stuff we usually pump. Unfortunately, trials
have shown that the fake blood causes "vasoconstriction," making patients
2.7 times more likely to have a heart attack and 30% more likely to die from
one. Trials have been called off.

I am exhausted. A combination of being put under pressure and having to
make phone calls (as outgoing as I may be, I loathe initiating phone
calls) -- a series of unfortunate events means that the full weight of
organizing an agenda for next week's meeting and ensuring the right
specialists are present has fallen onto my all-too-green shoulders. The
day's almost done, the agenda's almost complete, and I am thoroughly
drained.
