Nice holiday gift: blood

leave a comment »

I donated two units of my type O negative (universal donor, they love me) blood yesterday at the CHOMP (Community Hospital of Monterey Peninsula) blood bank. It was my regular every-four-month donation, but this time they were having a bit of emergency and trying to call people in—local hospital running short. Why don’t you donate some nice blood? Easy, quick, and (with lidocaine, anyway) painless. And the ALYX machine is wonderful: it takes two units so you go in only three times a year.
