Diabetesalicious - Lite 2/11/11 "NO MORE SNOW" Edition:

Diabetesalicious - Lite, 2/11/11 "NO MORE SNOW" Edition.

Greetings Diabetesalicious readers and HAPPY FRIDAY! I hope your work week ends on a positive note and your weekend doesn't involve snow or ice!! Can I get a "HELL NO, WE DON'T WANT SNOW" from my Diabetesalicious Congregation!

Speaking of no more snow, this week's Diabetesalicious-Lite is kind of campy - More specifically, Diabetes Camp. I was asked by the fabulous Miss Haley Van Schaick over at NaturallySweet to collaborate on a post with her about the fantasticalness of Diabetes camp. Check out our Diabetes "Camptacular" post, HERE!

Speaking of fantastical, DSMA (Diabetes Social Media Advocacy) is now hosting a monthly DSMA Blog Carnival. What's the carnival all about? Well, (and I'm paraphrasing) a blog carnival is a chance to explore a recent DSMA question in more than 140 characters.
At the beginning of each month, the blog carnival topic will be announced on the DSMA blog. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to join the carnival by writing a post about the topic of the month on your blog and sharing a link to your entry in the comments section of the DSMA Blog Carnival Post. Once the month has ended, DSMA will present the Blog Carnival Round-Up and feature a few posts that shouldn't’ be missed!

Speaking of rounding up, Kerri over at asked the DOC to share their PostSecrets, and the responses are AMAZING. Check out the submissions HERE.

Today is National "Don't Cry Over Spilt Milk" Day. OK, fine - But what about spilt coffee?! Basically, the day is all about not sweating the small stuff!

Today is also White Tee-Shirt Day. So if your going to spill your milk- you'd better be wearing a white tee-shirt!!

Weird facts:
Ancient Egyptians shaved off their eyebrows to mourn the death of their cats - Knowing this fact alone is all the more reason I'm a dog person. I'm totally obsessed with keeping my eyebrows groomed and embracing my inner Juliana Margulies

Four people actually played Darth Vader: David Prowse was his body, James Earl Jones did the voice, Sebastian Shaw was his face and a fourth person did the breathing.

And finally, In 2009, the world’s largest cupcake was built by Ryan Abood from Gourmet Gift Baskets in Manchester, New Hampshire. The cupcake, Ginormous was 1,224 pounds, used 800 eggs and took 12 hours to bake. Talk about BOLUS WORTHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And now you know~

Diabetes connection to the cupcake: I went to high school with Ryan Abood's brother/cousin. (I don't remember which)
