I'm scheduled to donate blood Thanksgiving morning. True: Red Cross is open that day, same as all Thursdays. I'd wanted to donate Saturday the 22nd, because A) that's my first day I'm eligible to donate again and B) that's the last day of the U of Oregon-Oregon State Civil War Blood Drive, and I wanted my pint to go towards the Ducks! Go Ducks! Go Ducks! Go Ducks!
Saturday's out, though, as it's already fully booked with donors. I'm not the only Duck or Beaver (or Duck and Beaver; I'm sure that happens) with that idea.
(This year family Thanksgiving is happening in Olympia, Washington. Driving there and back in time to work again Friday is not on my Happy List.)
