Some people have Catholic guilt. I have good hair guilt. I grew my hair out long because I can and I like it. But then I feel guilty like I should really donate it to wigs for little girls with cancer. I can always grew it out again. How can you say no?
I also have good blood guilt. I have O-negative blood which is good for new born babies because it is a universal donor. So, when the Red Cross calls, I feel obligated to schedule an appointment. It's not hard to give blood, a little uncomfortable, but not hard. However, sometimes my iron is too low and they won't let me. So, I started taking a multi-vitamin with iron, in part so that my iron level would be high enough to donate (also to have a nice healthy body if I ever want to make babies).

And I have Democratic majority guilt. If I don't help out I'm a hypocrite and wouldn't I feel bad if we lost our majority. And I don't want to be one of those people who I didn't like in 2006 (when my job was to recruit volunteers to doorknock and phonebank) for not volunteering. I have the time, I like the candidates, I want Minnesota to be a better place for all you grumps who hang-up on me. I have no excuse.

Keeping my current job is always a plus too.
