Yes! The time has come, the walrus said, for blood to be donated from Ted. I'm sitting in a faux-leather chair, smothered in blankets and with a needle in my right arm, sucking out my precious bodily fluid. This is a platelet donation, which takes around two hours, and so they give you a computer with internet access and—new since my last donation—streaming Netflix access, which makes me a very happy camper indeed. Heck, I'm getting such nice treatment here, I may never leave!
Gotta go—the masseuse is here.
