If your mind took a sharp turn south you can now retrieve it from the gutter. 🙂
The quarterly blood drive at PSU is coming up on October 19th and 20th from 11am – 4pm.
It’s a simple matter really. You come, sit down, read of bunch of fine print, testify that you don’t possess anything vile which can be transferred, sit (or lie in my case – I tend to faint) in a chair, let a kind volunteer who hopefully has a cheery disposition gently prick your arm with a tiny little needle, do some more sitting, get a neon colored bandaged wrapped around your arm, and eat free cookies. That’s right, f-r-e-e cookies. Granted they aren’t monster sized, gourmet cookies from a local, organic bakery, but they’re still free. And that’s not the point anyway. The point is that people need blood. We have a little extra lying around. We should give it.
So go sign up and help save a life! Go here, and type “Portlandstate” in the search box. Pick a day and time. Voila!
