I gave blood today!

Link: http://www.givelife.org/

Can you believe that it has been 3 years and 5 months since the last time I gave blood? :no:

I guess that's what happens when you move away from a 'remote' city in Canada, where donations happen when the blood mobile rolls in. To where living in Central Ohio, it becomes much more difficult to find out when and where there is a blood drive in walking distance from home or work.

The last time I gave blood, my chiropractor was hosting it. Today, Allstate (who are in the same building) was hosting one.

I wonder if should factor accessibility to future blood donations as something to consider with respect to where my next job will be at? )-o

When I was in Canada, I managed to get up to a 20 donation pin. Which is pretty good considering they only rolled the blood mobile into to town 3 times a year, and frequently I wasn't able to donate during the January drive...as I would invariably be down with the flu or something. It wasn't until the last couple of years I lived there that the upped the frequency to 4 times a year.

I found out that they do it by the gallon here in the states. Should be interesting to see how long before I reach one. Today is only my 3rd time so far.

This just in!

The goal of the Allstate blood drive was for 25 donations, and they had 24 donors. Of which, 4 of them were from Open Text.

I wonder where the next convenient drive will be….

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
