My Dress For #DProm.

DBlogWeek2011Button

Today's prompt is "Diabetes Bloopers", but since that's what I tend to write about any other time, I'm using one of the "wild card" topics: Today let's PROVE some fun d-myths like #dprom (the prom for diabetics around the world), Sprinkles (the glittery unicorn of advocacy), or Blünt Lancet (the diabetic heroes of rock)! Choose one of these “d-myths” (or create one yourself) and take it someplace creative! Write about any "myth" or story-line you can dream up! Let’s bring those “myths” to life!

* * * * *
I'd like to introduce...
My D-Prom Dress.


A. It's blue and glittery, for obvious reasons. It is also swingy, as I plan to do a LOT of dancing with my fellow PWDs.
B. "Sensible" shoes I can party all night in.
C. A purse just large enough to carry all of my d-gear, but small enough to feel fancy. And you can bet your BeDazzler that it's got a rhinestone cupcake on it.
D. Diet Coke martini, garnished with bacon. (Don't ask.)
E. Insulin pump, clipped to my dress and worn proudly as a corsage.
F. Huge goofy grin - because I can't imagine having any other expression at an event like this.
G. Horribly drawn kneecaps, and limbs that are much more skinny than in real life - brought to you by the magic that is Paintbrush!

  3. One time I was at the Open Bar Diabetes Prom -- oh I mean the JDRF Gala -- and I was standing next to a friend. We were both moms of little kids with d (she has two kids with d) at the time. We were both holding Martinis. I said to her "You look beautiful! Like Cinderella!" and she said, "Yeah but at midnight this martini is going to turn into a bottle of ketone strips!" ha ha ha

  6. At my real prom, the leg holster came sailing down my leg and off I ran folded in half to the bathroom to try and fix it. Wearing the pump as a corsage seems like a much better idea!

  11. Awesome post! I'm like you stuck for Wed topic for today - and I was thinking D-prom - but sadly my desktop PC isn't working today - so using my netbook to "design" an outfit is a head banging experience due to no mouse to scroll with. I'm hoping when I attend the CWD event in Toronto in July that there is a D-prom.
    Okay - off I go to see if I have Paintbrush on this little netbook of mine - if I can do it - I will do justice to my pudgy kneecaps :)
    Mmmm, diet Coke martini with bacon - yummmy in the tummy :)
