Not for the small-veined

I gave blood today. Woo-hoo! There are a bazillion reasons why you should give blood, if you haven't yet given blood today. Here are but a few:

1. Makes you light-headed
2. Makes you feel manly for getting stabbed in the arm ON PURPOSE
3. (To be read in a spooky voice:) You get to see lots of blooooooood
4. If you go with a friend, you can race to see who fills their bag first
5. It's a good deed (maybe this should have been number one)
6. Free juice and cookies at the end
7. Free sticker that commands others to be nice to you
8. Sporty brown iodine stain on your inner elbow
9. Get to know fun stats about yourself like blood pressure (100/70!), resting heart rate (78!), and cholesterol (we'll see when the card comes; probably around 300!)
10. You get out of the office for an hour (this one only applies to the blood drive during work)

There are many many more. You may have a reason why you don't give blood. That reason may be general, or it may be specific to you. I really don't care about it either way. Yay blood drives!

    Today is Thursday. Settlement on the sale of our house is Tuesday. I took the dog for a walk today, and I started to get a little emotional.

    So it wasn't until late 2013 that I learned how amazing Ursula K. Le Guin is, and how much I adore her. I have been slow in getting through her…
