Stayin’ Alive

I’ve been posting. Really, I have. Just not here. See, check it out. I’m trying to find my pace there. I have another online project, just for fun though, that I’ve been thinking about for the past year or so, and started to do back in December only to put it on hold and I think that I’m finally moving beyond thinking and messing about to actually doing thanks due to Melissa and Ms.Velvet Hammer. I’ll tell you more soon. Honest. I know you’re just dying to know.

Talking of dying or not, I shared this at work today and can’t get it out of my head. Go on, play it. It is totally irreverent, but as a cardiac arrest survivor and as someone who lost a sibling to a heart attack I give you permission to laugh your arse off at this public service announcement. Well, as long as you take the message to heart. Get it? Take the message to heart. If Danny was still alive he would laugh too, but there wasn’t anyone nearby who knew CPR, so he can’t. So we have to laugh twice as hard for all those lost. Frak, only 32% of cardiac arrest victims receive CPR from a passerby. Only 8% of us make it from the site to the hospital. The number of us out in the public and functioning successfully is lower yet. The quicker we get CPR the higher the rate of survival, the greater the number of us that can continue to function and contribute in this society. Watch the bloody video will you and share. Thanks. I feel better now.

Check it out, then go to http://bit.ly/AHACrowdRise to find out about a little prize competition they’re having.

Staying alive, staying alive, staying alive….

    Disco saves lives!!!

    I’m passing that on to as many people I as can possibly think of. Makes you laugh, makes you realize that you really can do it — because who can’t sing Stayin’ Alive in their head?

    Also, “So we have to laugh twice as hard for those we’ve lost” made me tear up. So true. I’ll do my best.

    Can’t wait to hear more about your Other Project!

    • Thanks Laura. I really appreciate you passing it on. I should tell you that Green recently retook CPR and they did the full CPR session to “And another one bites the dust.” I’ll stick to Stayin’ Alive.
