How old were you the first time you gave blood?
ETA: My son had already expressed an interest in giving blood on more than one occasion but he was not yet old enough. His father and I did not MAKE him go--it was just a really good time to go, because it's winter break and the Red Cross needed donors.
I am a very picky eater and I have never met anyone who doesn't like more than 2-3 foods.
ETA: Also, do you consider your family to be "dysfunctional"? How do you define functional and dysfunctional families?
DK/DC: Any plans for NYE? I'm doing my tradition of the Twilight Zone Marathon on Sci-Fi (I refuse to call it SyFy). 10+! I've seen every episode. /something I'm very proud of.
I need people hide licorice from me. I love it, especially red vines, and will eat pounds of it if it's available. The only thing that stops me is being able to not see it/not owning it.

Does anyone know of a good animation program that's like Painter(and for windows) that doesn't break the bank? I keep finding complicated programs that aren't any fun to use (not user friendly), and have no real tutorial support. Any ideas?
After listening to a friend complain about douche bag hipsters taking over his favorite dive bar...what is a hipster?

I'm still writing 2011 on all my checks
Do you have any toxic family members? Will you tell me about them and why they're toxic?
-On the same note, have you ever given someone a Christmas gift and had them shit all over it and say it's not good enough?
Any ideas? Recipes? Your favourite cocktail?
I am in Chicago right now on both a soul adventure / a lovely extended date. I love Chicago. I am having a great time and am pretty proud of how well I am able to keep swimming, so to speak, even when I am very far away from my people and my life. however, I have had a tough day today a little - mostly fine, and still a nice day, but I have felt a little homesick / tired / lacking alone time and that is dredging up some insecurity and exhaustion. I am about halfway through my trip, which will be 8 days in total (not all in Chicago).
so for all you travelers out there - do you experience depression and anxiety as a result of travel? if so, how do you manage it while you're physically away from your comfort zone / supports?

What music do you like to listen to when you're bummed out? Are there specific songs/artists/albums? Or just music with a certain 'mood' to it?
