So, the blood drawing at my physical last week was probably my easiest blood drawing yet. So I started thinking about giving blood, especially since my company has a blood drive coming up. I've always hated getting stuck with needles. I overcame that once to give blood, freshman year in college. I was told it wouldn't hurt, but it hurt the entire time the needle was in. It was an awful experience. But I know that giving blood is a good thing to do. Despite any concerns with the politics of blood banks, people need blood. I also found out that there is a raffle for Red Sox tickets for the donors, and all donors apparently get a T-shirt. I've been known to do a lot more just to get a T-shirt. So, yeah, I've got an appointment to give blood a week from today. I'm a bit nervous, since I'm such a big wimp. I'm sure it will be fine, though.

Where/when are you going? It's past time for me to donate blood again, so maybe I could join you.

It's at my work, 9:15 AM on Thursday. I've never actually gotten someone into the building, but I imagine it would just involve you giving my name at security and them calling me and stuff. Let me know if you want to do it.

What, my bringing you lunch in December didn't count as getting into the building?
