Another Friday Six.
The Friday Six --- a day late, according to my fine friend Christi. ;)
WON: Chris recently stumbled upon the Chuck Norris internet phenomenon, where Chuck Norris is granted superhero status online. (Bizarre stuff. I found it a number of years ago and laughed myself silly. Chris found it the other day and was in tears from laughing so hard.) He's created a list of Chuck Norris Facts with a diabetes-flair. I have a few of my own to add, but that's for another round with the ol' Photoshop. If you have any "Chuck Norris Diabetes Facts," I'd love to hear them. (And I'll most likely ALOL <--- that's for you, Shannon and Jamie.)
TOO: SUM is up for the Best Health Blog award at the Blogger's Choice Awards - and voting closes on October 19th. This is some shameless blog promotion, but if you feel comfortable casting your vote for Six Until Me, I'd really appreciate it. Click here to vote! I'm hoping to make it into the Top Three.
TREE: This weekend is already making me exhausted to think about - more weddings than I know what to do with. We have one in Manhattan on Saturday night and another in RI on Sunday evening. Plus, the dresses I have for these October events aren't exactly matching the freakish 80 degree weather. Oh blast! I can't wait until the only wedding I have to fret about is my own.
FORE: I have never played golf, but I swing a club like it's a hockey stick. (Only with far less power than Happy Gilmore.) This tidbit is irrelevant, but correlates directly with the "fore."
JOHNNY FIVE: Now that the CT JDRF walk has passed and the RI walk is on the horizon, I'm gearing up for Team Six Until Me's third appearance for the JDRF RI Chapter on October 21st. The emails are out, the team is growing, and the hours I spend actually sleeping are waning to a miniscule little smidgy bit. Mark my words: after October 21st, I am sleeping for three days straight. And not attending any weddings. Or walks. Or events that require thought.
SIX UNTIL ME: And on the cooking note from yesterday, I do have a crockpot. It's red and fancy and Batman gave it to me last year but I haven't even plugged the damn thing in yet. I'm on the hunt for crockpot recipes that are low-carb and very veggie-heavy (because I love me some vegetables). Also, do you really leave a crockpot plugged in all day long? That sounds like a fire hazard. I'm going to bring mine to work and plug it in here until someone asks me what the hell I'm doing.
Have a great weekend, F.R's! I'm off to finish work and look forward to Date Night with my handsome fiance. (I hope it includes cheesecake.)
