it is the season of giving - and that's exactly what i did on tuesday. i gave blood. this knocks another thing off my list! the last time i actually donated was 2006. i have tried since then, but since my iron was too low - they kicked me off the bus.
this was my best blood donating experience so far. the first (or second - i forget) time i donated i didn't eat a great breakfast beforehand (unless you count a mini hershey bar) and i got light headed. i didn't pass out, but i had to do the bicycle, while laying down (if you've donated blood you might be able to picture this). it sucked. oh well, people need my blood and i'm happy to give it up - two cups at a time.
since i like posting stupid pictures of myself, here's one for ya:
give blood: it makes you act like a freakin' retard for the camera. or wait, maybe that was the margarita i had before taking this picture? i'm pretty sure they don't advise drinking after donating. whoops. :)
