I am not generally a rah rah volunteer for community service type, but I do perform one semi-regular service for the masses – I try to donate a pint of blood every 8 weeks or so. I think I donated for the first time as a senior in high school, and, realizing that it was no big deal, I’ve participated in every convenient blood drive near my schools or workplaces.
So today I’m posting from the bloodmobile at my office complex. I have to type this left-handed on Treo since there is a giant needle and a few yards of tubing attached to the right arm. This is a pretty slow process.
Ugh. Never mind. I will post again when I have access to a normal keyboard and use of both hands.
Right now I am going to squeeze out some more blood and rejoice over the $10 Wal-Mart gift card I received for my blood. That’s a whole week of Cheapass Challenge food you know!
