The Sussy Six.
Today, my sussy came in the dLife mail delivery! Turns out my secret sussier was Kristen (aka kkonmymind), my Flickr buddy and fellow Nikon D40'er. Her gift was very sweet, including a data card for my camera, some tasty chewing gum (I'm admittedly addicted to gum) and a beautiful little bride-and-groom trinket to hold photos of friends and family. Thank you so much, Kristen! I love my sussy! (And currently your letter is being held by the bride and groom. They are taking good care of it.)
In the land of off-site writing, the latest issue of diaTribe is out, with an all-new SUM Musings column talking about hypoglycemia. Also, Generation D has been updated at dLife, with a focus on fitness. It's an honor to be writing for both sites, so if you haven't up as a subscriber to diaTribe or as a member of dLife yet, do it today!
With today being the first day of February, I've successfully completed my first month as a member of Diabetes365. It's a very interesting experience, taking daily snapshots of diabetes and seeing how a month of diabetes stacks up. Have you checked out the Flickr group for D365?
I stumbled upon this website about a Japanese origami artist who makes wildly creative and frighteningly realistic paper versions of industrial products. Check out his V-12 four-stroke engine, which actually works. I am so impressed.
In other nonsensical news, I have come across a video game starring, my favorite one-armed dragon, Trogdor. If you're into burninating and potentially being sworded, give this a go. It's a great way to waste five minutes, and to laugh your ass off at the pinnacle of silliness. And if you're looking for more old-school computer nonsense (for your TRS-80 computer from Radio Shack, perhaps?), check out this game.
On the recommendation of my terrific eye doctor, we're heading home to RI this weekend and I plan to crash at my best friend's house and chill out. Hopefully February will be filled with stress-free weekends and some cool moments. With my birthday just around the corner (Shannon's is tomorrow - be sure to wish her a happy one) and my wedding getting closer every day, there's definitely some fun to be had.
Have a great weekend, everyone. See you Monday! :)
