Get the blood flowing!

I donated blood this morning. Go me!

Today's was a themed blood draw, "Rock 'n' Roll Up Your Sleeves," so '50s and '60s rock (plus faux-'50s stuff like songs from Grease) played in the donation center, and impersonators of Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley made the rounds. I resisted the urge to point to the Elvis impersonator and say "Holy crap, it's Kurt Russell!"

And I'll be my hetero-male self and note that there were several, shall we say, aesthetically pleasing representatives of female humanity. Maybe that helped my blood flow faster (it took 6 minutes to draw a pint, when it usually takes 10). One of the volunteers was short and curvy in an Anna Faris way, and the woman who did my blood test and filled out my paperwork sounded like the sexily rough-voiced Pauley Perrette as Abby on NCIS. (Hey, any excuse to link to Abby...)
