  1. Do You Hear What I Hear?

    Shunk! Chu-chuck! Ti-di-dit!

    Name those noises? Can't? OK, fair enough. I can though. 

    1) Lanceting device firing
    2) Pulling back the lanceting device to fire
    3) Demipen injecting

    All very familiar sounds to me now. So it turns out you can hear diabetes. Who knew? I certainly didn't, until the thought occurred to me when my 'Lantus Alarm' went off on my phone nearly an hour ago. 23:00, every night since I started using Lantus. I think I need to get a better alarm noise, because that one really annoys me. I don't know if it's the noise itself, or the fact the noise is actually playing that annoys me. But I wonder if there is a 'remix' of every day diabetes sounds to be had?

    Maybe this is because I've got myself in a musical mindset at the moment. I'm practising for an open mic night coming up soon (one of my first times playing the guitar in public!), but also, I came across a few rather hilarious bits and pieces today.

    I know that I'm rather behind the times in coming across these, but they cracked me up all the same, and in case you're as behind as me, I suggest checking them out.

    First up is the always great Weird Al Yankovic with a lovely little ditty about our favourite organ, the pancreas.

    Second up is something that I discovered today, and wished I known about months ago. That would be Christiaan Van Vuuren, the Fully Sick Rapper. This guy is the business, and has a special place in my heart. I would love to see what would happen if you got him together with Flight of the Conchords, and Garfunkel & Oates. I have had his tunes in my head all day. I wish I had just 1% of this guy's creativity :D

      Short Story:
      Tonight I was sitting in a church-y service thinger and needed to test my blood sugar. All was quiet except the person speaking of course. So I tested and when the familiar sound of the clickclick happened, I realized that I was sitting behind the only other person who had type 1 diabetes in the service. And I wondered if he heard the click and instantly knew what I was doing behind him. And then you posted this. So voila. My story. (hehe)
