This is the Second Annual Erie Blogs Week at the Community Blood Bank. I gave in July, so I can’t give this week, but I encourage all of my Erie readers who are 17 and over, in general good health, and who live a healthy lifestyle, to GO GIVE BLOOD THIS WEEK. It won’t hurt too badly, and the nurses there will treat you nice and give you lots of cookies and drinks before you leave.
Adiel, if you are reading this, you are exempt, but you should send your husband and your dad. Barb, AFAIK you are not. Nikita, I don’t know if they want your blood, because when you give blood in the USA, they ask if you have ever lived in Africa, and then they ask if you have lived in England. (Something about mad-cow disease, I think.) So I guess you are exempt too.
And when you give, vote for your favorite Erie blog. (Or you could just vote for me, Books, Toys, and Games.) There is supposed to be a form at the front desk, and you should ask the receptionist about it.
If you do that, you will be entered in a drawing for a New Apple iPhone 3G. I’m not sure what one of these is, but I’m sure you want one.
If enough of you vote for me (Books, Toys, and Games), I will also win one. I know I want one, because it has a built in GPS, which means I will never have to ask for directions any more. Since I’m a guy, that is just about perfect. Perfect would be if it came with a bass boat, and the GPS also had depth charts for the lake and the bay.
Of course, my dear readers, you do not need to be bribed to do the right thing.
