Part Two: In which Kerri solves the Gomez Quandry and remembers Reading Rainbow

No Diabetes, Traveling By March 28, 2006 No Comments

Exploring the Sunset Strip, Chris and I sat at a stop light in our little hybrid. “Listen, Kerri.” Chris paused, spreading his hands dramatically over the steering wheel. “Not a sound.” The car seemed like it turned off when we were at stoplights. The motor made no sound. No clicks, no whirrs, no noises whatsoever. An odd sound to my…

Real Life Diabetes, Traveling By March 26, 2006 No Comments

I’ve been at work since 6:45 this morning. Not a big deal, but I didn’t fall asleep until after 2 o’clock in the morning. Working off three cups of coffee, L-Glutamin, and these really nice tea biscuits that the British guys at work brought in. Being this tired has caused my mind to roam about unsupervised. As follows: In about…


Lost in Boston. (Again.)

Diabetes Advocacy, Diabetes Products, Traveling By March 21, 2006 Tags: No Comments

We were late arriving because I managed to get us lost. It’s what I do. Convinced I knew exactly where it was but in reality not having the faintest notion, I dragged Chris around Boston in hot pursuit of the ADA Diabetes Expo. Bright Boston sunshine reflected off the buildings as we strolled towards the Seaport World Trade Center. “There it…


Preferring Crayons.

A Haiku for this Morning at Work. Computer on. The Papers shuffle without sound. I’d rather color. Sometimes I wonder if people from work will stumble upon this blog, read about how much I loathe my job, and then pink slip me, a la Dooce. If that ends up being the case, how awful (read: liberating) would that be? Post re:…


Writer’s Block.

All these thoughts and I can’t even concentrate long enough to string a sentence together that doesn’t start “I want some more black raspberry ice cream.” I’ve been trying to work on some writing projects for a few hours now and so far I have accomplished the following: Ate some delicious black raspberry ice cream. Thought about how long it…


I held hands with Superman.

I held hands with Superman. It’s true. He was six years old and missing a front tooth and melted my heart by comparing pumps and trying not to step on any cracks as we walked along the sidewalk towards the Children’s Museum. “Can’t step on the cracks,” I warned, tipping my foot sideways to avoid a fissure. “Got it.

Six Things on Friday.

The Friday Six By March 10, 2006 No Comments

1. Tomorrow it is supposed to be almost 60 degrees in Boston. Perfect weather for a PreUnion. (Someone called it “The Sucrose Social.” I laughed and begged for rights to reprint their quip.) Starts at High Noon. Meet in the lobby? I have to be at a real estate appointment at 4 o’clock, so I can stay until about 3:40-ish. But I…
