Things I discovered when giving blood on Thursday:

  • weight 70kg, which is down a couple of kilos, though I don’t feel any thinner. I may use it as an excuse to eat more chocolate
  • haemoglobin count is 16.5 (dunno what it’s measured in, but whatever it is, there’s 16.5 of them, hooray for all of them)
  • my blood pressure is 120 over 80, apparently not too shabby
  • I can pump out blood at 55ml/second minute (per arm, I assume)
