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!)

Don't let people freak you out - it's amazing how fast the human body heals, and you are doing a great thing for your friend. You will be fine and better in no time.

I agree about the stadium thing - health should be the number one priority in this country, but unfortunately it takes a back seat to making the government look good to international media and tourists.

Well over here we have NHS dental and healthcare...and believe me...I would rather pay and know I could get a damn appointment...and this week I paid £15 for the dentist to inflict lots of pain on me!!!! 'this will be uncomfortable' No that was hell!

Anyway...I am thinking of you both...I wish I could be there...I do have a gift etc...but I am late at posting...sorry...
Lots of love to you both from me!
