Update on Vampires

Turns out I was wrong anyway... even if I could give a pint of blood in under half an hour (never going to happen), I'm not eligible to give blood anyway. I had been told (BY A RED CROSS PERSON, BY THE WAY) that the restrictions on having lived in Europe had been relaxed, but it sure doesn't appear that they have. From the Red cross Website:

You are not eligible to donate blood if:
[snipped]
You were a member of the of the U.S. military, a civilian military employee, or a dependent of a member of the U.S. military who spent a total time of 6 months on or associated with a military base in any of the following areas during the specified time frames

From 1980 through 1990 - Belgium, the Netherlands (Holland), or Germany
From 1980 through 1996 - Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Italy or Greece.

You spent (visited or lived) a cumulative time of 5 years or more from January 1, 1980, to present, in any combination of country(ies) in Europe, including
