Vampires

Apologies to the squeamish, but I have just discovered that my two siblings and I have donated 27 pints of blood between us over the last ten years. That's quite a lot of the red stuff (especially as two of us keep getting banned for ventilated earlobes and long-term illnesses). I think we all deserve a pint of our choice and a whole heap of chocolate.

Good for you. I'm not allowed to do it any more (no, I haven't been sleeping with anyone from Africa or anyone I know to be homosexual, it's much less interesting than that) but it's something I always felt it was important to do, and I sort of envy people who can. 27 pints is lots.

I should point out that first, they're American pints, not real ones, and second, I'm donating as fast as they'll let me because once I move, the vampires there won't want mine, since I'll have spent too long over here between 1980 and 1996...

Me again. I hope you don't mind, I've tagged you for this meme http://tinyurl.com/2xrpwj I don't really believe in 'doing' memes, I think they should happen by accident, but I discovered that I was terribly flattered to be asked. I hoe you will be too, and I want to read your answers.
