Yesterday I gave blood again. I actually passed the hemoglobin and temperature test this time!
Megan went with me in the hopes that they would have free pizza and other delicious lunch fare. Unfortunately they only had Hydrox cookies and flat coke and Megan passed out. Not only that but we were an hour late returning from lunch and the free t-shirts were extra large.
I felt bad so I promised to buy her lunch for dragging her down there.Blood Types and Personality
It used to be a common practice in Japan to ask a person what his or her blood type is. That's because some Japanese people believe that much like the zodiac sign one was born under supposedly determines traits and characteristics, so does blood type.
In America, a person generally doesn't know their blood type unless they have received a transfusion or they have donated blood to the American Red Cross. Since many young people aren't donors, this kind of fun horoscope-like prediction method would never be very popular here.
Here are the general ideas of each blood type. The Rh factor plays no role determining personality.
Type O's are outgoing, and very social. They are initiators, although they don't always finish what they start. Creative and popular, they love to be the center of attention and appear very self confident.

Happy Birthday, Baby
Every time Alfred comes back from being away it feels like the first time I saw him. I'm not sure that he's gonna like me. I feel like I don't deserve him. I don't know why I'm this way. Today is better though. It feels almost normal again, except I have an overwhelming feeling of wanting to spend every minute with him, even more than usual.
Today is Alfred's birthday, he never really
ages though. he has more energy now than when we met. He is amazing. I wish I could do something special for him for his birthday. Maybe next year.
I can't wait to take pictures of Arenal volcano for myself. They probably won't be as awesome as this one since I don't know anything about high dynamic range, but they will be mine.
I think in Costa Rica you can see the whole rainbow. The full circle, not just the arc. I'll be happy to look until I find one like that...and then I'll take its picture.
I went to see The Da Vinci Code last night with Megan. It was pretty good, but I haven't read the book so I don't know how closely the movie followed it. She said the book was better, which is usually the case.
I stopped in her house for a few minutes after the movie. I thought her fish was dead but he was just sleeping.
Alfred finally called today from Nick's phone at 1:09 pm. He said that his phone was dead so that's why he hadn't called. He said he had not met someone. He drank too much and got sick and that's why they left Virginia so late.
