Please don't tell me when you go skydiving! And you have bought a brand new car. Remember the Saturn? And the great salesman who jumped on the door for you?

Andrea--have you donated blood (or cord blood)? Remember, each time you donate blood you can save up to three lives--so maybe you have saved lots of lives! ;-)

I guess since the Saturn wasn't technically bought with my money so I didn't know if that counted.

And yes, I've donated blood lots of times. In fact, I have really big veins in my arms so the phlombotimist (sp?) is always happy to see me!
