Friday Five: 27 August 2010

Once again, it's been a stellar week among the DOC (diabetic online community).  There have been several  posts that have made me life and (nearly) cry.  Enjoy! 

  1. The first post is a tear jerker.  I certainly understand where George is coming from when you're fighting a low but trying to be discreet at the same time.  His poem about a stranger who offered him a granola bar (without guilt) really tugs at my heart strings, especially the part when he said "And not every person you meet in the world is a member of the Diabetes Police."  I wish everyone had that much compassion.  Great post, George!  
  2. This next post is just funny, absolutely funny.  It's about a rubber duckie that goes on a beach trip with Chris.  Every picture gave me a giggle, but the one about Duckie having crabs made me let out a huge guffah!  Very creative, Chris!
  3. Jacquie does a great internal dialogue (or at least I hope it was internal) post about her . . . interesting yoga class and its participants.  I can say that I couldn't get over the idea of exercising your sphincter.  So, so funny.   
  4. Kim does a great post about a confessional to her Father Diabetes about some of her "sins" involving diabetes management.  I think everyone in the DOC has experienced all of these at one point or another.  Guilt, it's the ultimate complication. 
  5. And finally, Kerri posted a video this morning about her pregnancy with an interview with Johnson&Johnson.  Kerri does a great interview, but the ultimate jewel of the video is some action of BSparl.  I had to watch it twice because the first time I kept staring at BSparl and forgot to listen!  (Sorry Kerri . . . )
Enjoy these posts and enjoy the weekend!  One more week until college football starts!  Warrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Eagle, Hey!  =D
