Successfully down one pint

Yep, I donated blood, and got to sport both green gauze on my arm and a heart-shaped sticker on my shirt saying "Be nice to me, I gave blood today!" I worked to be in a good mood in the run-up to the draw, thinking comedy routines and scenes and sometimes saying them quietly ("The new phone books are here! The new phone books are here!"). Afterwards, I treated myself to steak; I like to have meat (or, should I say, MEAT) following a draw. Yum (with the added yum of creamed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes). Some of that yum will comprise my dinner tomorrow.

And don't worry, I'm drinking plenty of water. It's not even scotch-flavored water,'s that good Portland tap water...
