Went over to campus to give blood today at the Dream Factory of Central New York's second annual blood drive in conjunction with the Cornell Lacrosse team. Apparently the turnout of Lacrosse player volunteers wasn't up to snuff! The senior defenseman who was defending the cookie table commented that he was expecting more of his buddies to join him.
According to the nurses, there's an even worse shortage than usual for this time of year because they've had to cancel several blood drives in the northern parts of New York that have been clobbered by snow over the last couple of weeks. Today's drive is good timing; we're about to get socked ourselves. They're at G10 Biotech until 5:00 if you're on or near campus and are eligible to give blood.
