The Onion On My Internet Belt

Well Loyal Readers, I’m in my third week at the new job. I’ve got to admit that going back to not knowing anything (especially after knowing everything in the old department) is a little upsetting. That being said the new challenges are good, the folks are pleasant, and the change in overall pace is very welcome. I haven’t been posting much on social media because I’m too busy learning new stuff.

To non-work news; My Tour de France mania, like b.b. gun mania at Christmas knows no bounds. Stage 5 (two days ago) on the cobbles was nerve wracking to watch and incredibly exciting. There have been a couple notable crashes in Mark Cavendish and Chris Froome who both had to abandon but that makes the whole race unpredictable and that much more fun to watch. I’ve got a fantasy cycling league going on if anyone wants to join!

In the mail this last week I received my Dexcom G4 continuous glucose monitor. I haven’t brought myself to the point of using it yet but I am hoping to make the jump this weekend. It’s hard to explain the mix of hope, weight, fear, and something like wonder I feel when considering how my life could change with the use of this machine. I guess we’ll see shortly.

I’m short on time so let’s get to the music, shall we? Listen to and/or download this show! The Funkomaticjamatron Presents… originally mixed the week of 7.11.14

  1. I was just reading a bit about that new glucose monitor. Looks like it could indeed be life altering. I hope it works for you. Did you go with “classic black” or did you get one of the color ones? Completely superficial, but… Ocean blue?

    • I did go with classic black. I wanted one with flames on it, but that wasn’t an option.

      I’m on day three of using the Dexcom. There are pluses and minuses. I’ll need to do a different sensor placement next time (stays for a week). Interesting to see how long lows take to recover from. Overall I think I’m doing too much insulin (a very real possibility). The book is six times the size of the monitor itself. Once I read more perhaps the operation of the device will make more sense.
