Did some laps at the pool this morning, managed to avoid the man who doesn't like to share.

Had some nice sushi before I went to the blood bank.

Gave a unit of blood.

Fainted in the refreshment area.

Feeling very foolish right now, but it was a good way to get attention. People were fanning me, checking my BP and showing concern. It took me a while to feel right again, but once I did feel OK they made me wait longer and didn't want me to drive home. The staff intimated that perhaps I shouldn't rush back. My bad veins and swan diving just creates a lot of paperwork.

I must have bumped my head on the way south as I have a tender lump on my forehead to show for my altruistic efforts.

But don't let that put you off donating, just don't get up too quick.


  1. Hope you're feeling better now!
