#GiveAllTheThings: Nanu Nanu/Nano Nano.

UPDATE: This contest is now closed. Congratulations to:

Katie S.: As a child of the 90s, the word "nano" only makes me think of my Nano Baby. Everyone in middle school had to have one (or some form of it--Tamagotchis and Giga Pets, anyone?) and we constantly got in trouble for playing with them in class.

Mara: Awwww having this itty bitty Nano would kind of want to make me test even more often (kind of like how when I was a kid, Pre-D, I would always want a blood test at the doctor so he'd give me a Garfield bandaid. Yes, that's right. :-)

Please email me at textingmypancreas (at) gmail (dot) com with a mailing address, and I'll get your meters out to you... soon. :)

Happy holidays!

Products: Two Accu-Chek Nano meters, for two lucky winners! (And in reference to the title, sorry - I can't see "Nano" and not think of Mork and Mindy. Anyway, hello tangent, back to the giveaway.)


Made possible by: Roche Diagnostics, Diabetes Care (makers of Accu-Chek products)

Why you want this: This is the newest Accu-Chek meter - tiny device, bright screen, improved accuracy, and it comes with a FastClix lancing device. It can also be individually styled with cases and covers, should you choose to do so!

To enter today's contest: Leave a comment below with the word "Nano" in it. (Or if you spell it "Nanu", I won't hate it.) Make sure your comment is time-stamped before 5:30pm CST; this post will be updated shortly after 5:30 with the names of the two winners! This contest is for U.S. addresses only.

About next week: There will be no #GiveAllTheThings on Monday or Tuesday of next week, as my family and I celebrate Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The party will resume on Wednesday, the 26th, so check back in with me then to see the remaining four giveaways I have planned for you!

Happy Holidays!

  2. Some people say a NANO-byte doesn't exist, but the teeth marks on my 'puter would suggest otherwise! ;)

  4. Apparently, the prefix nano- means a billionth. I'm so glad this post prompted me to learn something new...like in the context of my life, diabetes need only take about a billion nano-thoughts. Especially, if I had an Accu-Chek Nano!

  5. Would love the new meter and really want to try the fastclix lansing device.
    Nano,Nano- over and out.

  6. We just moved into our first house (yay!). Things I have learned: 1.) I must keep meters on every floor and in many rooms. 2.) Cranking my basal down 30% is not enough to offset the exercise involved in moving/unpacking. 3.) I can eat all the Christmas goodies I want, and my bg seems to tank repeatedly anyways. 4.) My recent allergy to the Dexcom (which is sadly not helped by anything I've tried yet), means I have to test my bg *cough* every nanosecond. And thanks body for finding another way to betray me with the allergy. 5.) One of my dogs can get out of a very tiny hole in a fence. 6.) I cannot keep up with my 10 lb dog running at full speed, or even come close.

  8. This meter would be awesome... Since it is NANO-sized, I won't have trouble fitting it into my bag with all of my other items and dSupplies! :-)

  11. So saying nanu-nanu like Mork from Mork & Mindy still qualifies us? Sweeeeeet! Because EVERY time I see the name of this device that is what I think of. :)

    Again, thanks for doing all this, Kim. You ROCK!!!

  13. I saw an ad on televeision for this Nano meter, and I was super excited about it (not the meter, necessarily, but the ad.) because until the very end of the ad i had no idea it was gonna be a diabetes thing! I tried to find it so y'all could watch it and be excited to, but I failed.

  14. going to home to see the folks for Christmas to save $, I am flying an airline that makes a lot of short hops. While I'm flying with them, I'm going to hate every nanosecond of the flight!

    Merry Christmas to all!
