Blood and Big Booze Beginnings

I found out my blood type yesterday at the blood typing session in my residence. I'm O+, which is the most common blood types. That was comforting to hear for two reasons:
1. I feel less guilty for not being able to donate blood knowing that they must get lots of O+ blood. I've always felt bad about not being able to donate, even though it's basically out of my control. 'Tis one of the downsides to being so small.
2. If I'm ever in need of blood there will be lots of people that can give theirs to me.

Also, on Tuesday something BIG happened.
I decided what my first alcoholic beverage will be. I intend to drink Guinness on St. Patrick's Day in honour of my Irish roommate from my summer physics program, Jodie. I was talking to her on Facebook chat on Tuesday, though it was already Wednesday in Ireland at the time, and the topic of St. Paddy's Day came up. She told me I was expected to drink a pint of Guinness, as it is Irish tradition. According to her even children drink a pint of Guinness on St. Patrick's Day. Though I doubt I'll drink a pint of it I promised to make an exception to my "no alcoholic beverages" rule and give Guinness a try. I've already found a supplier, so now it's just a matter of figuring out just how much I can drink without losing control. I doubt I'll even risk drinking more than half a bottle, but we'll just wait and see.
I've also already planned out a sweet overly green outfit to rock all day, so St. Patrick's Day shall be swell. Perhaps I'll post some photos of these Irish ventures once they've been completed.
May the luck o' the Irish keep me safe.

  1. How lovely :)
    For the blood type.
    I'm O-. I can give to everyone, but can only receive O-. So pretty much I need to donate!

    And I am proud of you for honoring Jodie :)
    I can't wait to see your sweet overly green outfit :) <3
