Whenever you give blood you have the standard list of questions that you need to answer. Bloodworks Northwest has these touch-screen computers you use to fill out the questionnaire.

Then I got to this question.


I did not spend any time in the past three years outside the US or Canada.

This gives me a sad. I love travel, but lately I’ve only been in both the US and Canada, and nothing else in this great big blue marble of a planet we live on. That’s a problem in my book.

I’m feeling a real need to leave the country (and Canada) and do something interesting.
