Giving Blood  
Today I gave blood for the first time since before September 2001 (tattoos mean you can't give blood for a full year).

I know people will consider it odd, but I actually like the sensation of the blood leaving my arm. Even though I am woozy now, and won't get rid of that sensation until probably two or three this afternoon (after lunch).

One of the last times I gave blood I was standing in boots volunteering afterwards, and got so woozy that I had to lie down (oops). I was wearing grey lipstick, so they thought I was having more of a problem than I was (bigger oops).

But despite the wooziness, I am feeling fine and getting plenty of work done. I have three or four more things to do before I can get to the portion of work I really wanted to get done today (it is lower priority work, so I just really want to get it done sooner rather than later).

And wow, it is really nice connecting to the faster servers.
