Blood Drive

So a doctor I know sent out an email last week that the NYC blood bank is reaching critical levels and urging folks to open a vein. Which I did, just now, on my lunch break.

I've never given blood before--it's kind of fun! Also they give you snacks after. But the lightheadedness doesn't go away for a while it seems--I feel like I took 2 benadryl with an espresso chaser to keep me awake.


They gave me a red bandage for my arm. It matches my dress. The first time they tested my iron it was just barely too low so the dude asked me if I wanted to try my other hand -- I said yes and that finger produced appropriately ferric (?) blood, it seems. Then wow, they took a lot of blood. A pint is a lot, yall! They took more blood than the soup I ate for lunch. Ew, gross comparison. Sorry.

Anyway, I feel so virtuous! And disconnected!

Oh, the beach!

Perry and I went to the Jersey Shore this long weekend, where we swam in the ocean, lay on the beach, made and ate cake, and lazed about drinking beer. The best part of this, as far as I'm concerned, is that I now have freckles!!!

I heart movies

I'm on kind of a movie binge lately. In the last week, I've seen:

- Live Free or Die Hard (stupid but entertaining)
- Ratatouille (awesome in every way a movie can be awesome)
- Death Note and Death Note: The Last Name (AWESOME.)

In the next week, I hope to see:

- Transformers (I fully expect will be stupid but entertaining)
- Harry Potter (eeeeeeeeee! Time for ALL CAPS ANGRY HARRY!)
