B+ please

Today the Red Cross was having a blood drive, and since Shannon has (apparently) a rare blood type, we went. I also have rare blood, but was hesitant to go because I'm recovering from a cold. I decided that I should do my civic duty and went. However, they wouldn't let me give blood today, because my iron was too low. I guess it needs to be 12.5 (12.5 what, I don't know) and mine was just 12.3. I'm not anemic or anything, I just guess the Red Cross likes their blood to be umm, more iron-rich than the doctor's office does. So, I got pricked on each middle finger and told to try again next time. Shannon got the full ordeal though, complete with a purple bandage, a Coke, and Oreo-esque cookies.

What else did we do today? I made pancakes and eggs this morning for breakfast; Shannon made coffee. We played some Sequence over breakfast; Shannon won 3-2. I took a quiz, my last one of the semester, and got 100% (yay!). We played some more Sequence; I won, 3-2. Shannon made sweet tea and hot dogs on the George Foreman while I made sauteed zucchini and warmed up leftover homemade macaroni-and-cheese.

The rest of the evening will consist of Shannon working, my meeting a friend for coffee, making soft tacos for dinner, and maybe making brownies, if I feel up to it. Oh, and working on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I love having time to read for fun.
