You stay classy Florida
I'm O- as well. I get thanked a LOT every time I donate, which is pretty much every 8 weeks. I cannot do double reds.
Last summer my hematocrit was too low to donate, although not too low for me according to my doctor. That happened twice which was really embarrassing because my number's usually mid to upper 13s to mid 14. Started taking an iron supplement, went in last fall and showed 14.7 I think. Also was told that day that their meter had been not working right. Well, now you tell me. Anyway, back on mostly regular schedule now and not taking iron. Go to the donor center in Ames and count on a Rice Krispie treat and bag of smart-pop popcorn every time. I'm a cheap date.
I've never donated blood. Am I a bad person?
Nope, not at all. It's not for everyone, especially because you really don't get anything for it and rarely know how you actually helped anyone. I'm just amazed that I can provide something that's valuable for someone else.
Dishes gonna be a terrible knock knock joke, isn't it?
Nope, I probably would have chickened out except when I was deciding whether or not to go into the great hall of the Union, two friends came by and said lets go. So that's how it started for me. Plus afterwards a trip to the M-Shop to rehydrate was always in order.

I've donated 3 times. Each time I got really light headed and felt like crap for half a day. I don't mind needles, so it wasn't that. After the last time where I almost passing out driving home, I decided that my blood must like being in my body.
I'll probably try it again sometime, but I'll have someone drive me home.
So the high wire guy is going to walk across an active volcano now?
Some things never change
I wish I could claim drunk but no, just stupid.
It would be kind of funny if it got hot and he had to tightrope like someone barefoot on hot asphalt.
Applied for a position at ISU through Workday.
System won't let you advance without all your documents (cover letter, resume, etc.)
Posting closed last night. They sent me an e-mail asking for my resume, because it didn't make it through Workday.
I'm assuming that's good, right? Otherwise they'd just throw it out?
Or if the rope burned and he had to swing with it (like that's an option) and be like the first person to climb all the way out of a volcano.
I remember watching maybe the first F and F movie, but it had the girl who played Ana Lucia from 'Lost'....she always overacted and was a character I was happy to see killed off.
Don't remember much else from the FF movie...I'll assume they won and someone said something awesome at the end.
