Humpf, donation deferred

I tried to donate blood at the company blood drive today, but missed my hemocrit count. I hate it when that happens. It seems to be about one time in five or six, over the years. Not enough iron.

On the other hand, I seem to be in otherwise good shape. Heart good, and blood pressure admirable. And I signed up for the on-site gym today. My upper arms are getting bat flaps, and I need to do something about that. And the Zumba dance class looks fun. And they also have kickboxing. On-site means its convenient. I know what I want to do on my lunch hour, now.
