World Series Six.
It's been a very busy few weeks around here and I'm hoping things are starting to settle down for a bit, before the November's storm of NaBloPoMo and NaNoWriMo -- wasn't someone supposed to tell me not to do that again this year?
Welcome to the World Series
Sox (not yet - patience) Six:
Oh the joy of taking the first two at home -- Boston sports teams are lighting it up lately, and my beloved Red Sox are no exception. As one of two Red Sox fans in my office (we are the lone wolves in this sea of pinstripes), my glee is somewhat contained, but he and I share quiet high-fives when no one is looking. The Yankees fans in my office spout off about "the rings! Count the rings!" but what they fail to realize is that I'll be grinning about the 2004 victory until I'm about 80, regardless of the wins or losses in between.
I must admit it - I'm addicted to reading the posts over at Blogabetes. Even though I have my editor hat on (it has horns, too), I can't help but end up immersed in their words. If you haven't checked out Blogabetes, you need to scoot on over there and see what some of your favorite d-bloggers are writing about these days.
Speaking of writers, I'm in search of a guy with type 2 diabetes who may be interested in contributing to a dLife project. Must like long boluses, fresh lancets, and the occasional cookie. ... In all seriousness, if you are a fella with type 2 diabetes and you would be interested in a dLife project, drop me a line.
My iTunes are jammed up with new songs, but the albums I can't stop listening to this week are the soundtrack for Into The Wild and the new Foo Fighters bit. Chris and I went to see Into the Wild a few days ago and it definitely sent my brain into a self-preservation tailspin. Recommend the album if you're looking for something that includes the occasional banjo. I went on a spending spree at Newbury Comics the other day (there isn't one in CT, therefore making CT suck a bit), but I'm always game to check out new bands. If you have a recommendation, I'm all bloggy ears.
I have no idea when the clocks change. This just dawned on me. I need to start reading a newspaper or something - the internet is causing me to scale back on brain cell use.
And lastly, if you haven't checked out the Diabetes365 project, it's now officially time. Beth has created a terrific website featuring the participants in the project. It's a full year of what life is like with diabetes, aiming to raise awareness and inspire. I'm proud to say that it's accomplishing both goals.
