Happy Week between Xmas and New Year's, Friends!

We've declared an extended holiday weekend, so Allison and I are still out merrymaking. We hope you are too — rather than reading this from your office cubicle.

Either way, please enjoy this video of a diabetes-themed rap starring Luke Widbin, a type 1 who won the World Diabetes Day Young Voices video contest with this submission back in 2008. It's still funny, and it also contains accurate type 1 info. Gotta love that!
