1.  What does blogging do for you?

It’s put me in touch with other diabetics who are experiencing so much of what I experience.  It’s given me the opportunity to embark on a new career path.  It makes me feel confident, strong, silly, self-conscious, and happy all in the same spin cycle.  It has given my family and friends the opportunity to see what diabetes is like, without having to talk about it all the time.  It makes me laugh, sometimes.  (It also forces me to learn html coding and stylesheets.)

It makes me realize how much reading the words, “I feel that way, too,” can make your whole world crack wide open.  It confirms I’m not alone.

2.  Do you have any tattoos?  If so, what of and what do they represent?  If not, would you?

No tattoos for this girl.  And no plans for any, either.  I can’t think of anything I want on my body for permanence.  My two best friends are all inked, though.  They look lovely.  I just don’t have the desire.  I did, however, pierce my navel just to piss my father off.  Success!

3.  If money were no object, describe what your wedding would be like.  Where would you Pez.  It's very wedding-y.honeymoon?

Ah, the wedding.  (Can I admit to the seven bridal magazines that are on my bookshelf at work right now?  And the wedding binder I’m building at home?  And should I also admit to the fact that I’ve barely been engaged for two weeks?) 

Having fully disclosed that, my dream wedding would be enormous.  Our guest list would scroll on for miles, including the names of every family member and every friend we have.  There would be a string quartet that plays as I walk down the aisle, a live band for our reception, and the most decadent, crank-up-your-pump cake of all time.  People would be happy that we’re happy.  You’d hear the laughter from miles away and people’s jaws would ache from smiling.  And we’d know that plane tickets (and let’s not forget the xanax!) would be sitting in our hotel room, ready to fly us off to Europe for a three-week honeymoon adventure.

But, regardless of budget, the day would end and I would be his wife.  That’s the best part.  And you can’t put a price on that.

4.  What is your all-time, number one, desert island favorite book/album/movie?

All time favorite book – The Princess Bride 
All-time favorite album – The Joshua Tree
All-time favorite movie – Braveheart

5.  Is what you do for a living what you’d do if money were no object?  If not, what would you do?

Let’s be honest – if money were no object, I’d be writing books full-time and running a flower shop.  But since money is always an object, I’m more than happy to be working for a company whose mission I respect and share.

If you want five, let me know.  I'm more than happy to dole them out.  (Be warned - they could be pretty damn random.)

Completely unrelated – I received a UPS box yesterday at work from a reader with a lovely engagement gift inside.  The card was so nice, but unsigned.  If you wish to remain anonymous, I wanted to make sure I thanked you so much for your gift!  If Who is this from?you would email me at kerri @ sixuntilme . com, I would love to send you a personal “thank you” instead of this sort of general one.

ahhh, those first few weeks of engagement...getting one's hands on everything and anything on weddings. Then it becomes more of a background thing (hey, I have a job, I have a life, I don't need to live and breathe this 24/7) until the last few weeks before the wedding.

I'll take some (more) questions.

hey kerri,
saw ur note and d and me. i have my pic up now.

Ooh, what was the gift? It wasn't from me BTW :)

Toss me some questions. I need material for my blog. My life's currently a bore and I have nothing to blog about.

I love that joy and laughter and the real meaning of your wedding means more to you than the "stuff." :)

Also - a wedding binder?? OCD much, my dear?

I'll take five. Love randomness.

Ha ha, what Rachel said is so true! I have stacks and stacks of bridal magazines that I just sent to be recycled! You will soon find that after a while, they all look the same. But I will admit to being the same way as you when I first got engaged. If you can think of some great questions, please ask away!

Yes, please I would like 5 - the randomer (er more random) the better :)

Those Pez despensers rock BTW.

I think 5 questions from you would be fun! Me please.

I haven't been by in a while so I didn't realize you'd gotten engaged. Many blessings on you both!

I'd love five questions; I can always use a posting starting point.

Oooo, ooo, I want 5 questions!!!! Also, I will do the whole binder/magazine thing. I think it's fun. (Sometimes I look wt them and dream about my wedding. I;m not even dating anyone right now!)

Dood, those Pez dispensers would make hysterical favours.
