Today was my birthday, propelling me further into my late 30s. On the up-side, R treated me to some fabulous gluten-free pizza at the Rocky Mountain Flatbread Company. Dessert was had at the always-yummy Mario's Gelati (the 218 flavours place). It made for a nice, quiet, incredibly omnomnom birthday. My favourite kind. :)

Had my second (and apparently last) endocrinology appointment for the year today. hg A1C is heading in the right direction, *DL is right where it should be, K is a bit high (no doubt due to over-consumption of Diet Pepsi -- got to find some sucralose-sweetened cola with a heap of caffeine), but it won't kill me. It's just an outlying number that the endocrinologist couldn't explain until I pointed the source out to him. I've managed to drop my insulin doses by 30-50% and bring the numbers to a much more consistent state than they were before.

A lot of this is no doubt due to cutting out the gluten. Before it seemed that there was a hidden factor that affected me on a day-by-day, and often meal-by-meal basis -- it just seemed that consistent dosing brought inconsistent results. Looking back it seems likely that was a reaction to the gluten causing my digestion to do dodgy things. I feel a heck of a lot better now that I'm off the stuff, anyway.

I've been trying to do more coding on the weekends, and I now think this is a mistake. Weekends need to be for resting and just doing whatever, not for trying to cram in whatever I don't get time to do during the week. I nuked the Yabba repo -- nothing of value there, and it'll never get used now that I'm on DW.

The doglet got fed wheat crackers a couple of days ago and now she has a patch of irritated skin on her tummy. This makes three times in the last several months she's gotten her paws on something with gluten and three times her body's reacted in exactly the same way. At least we know for sure what's causing it now.

Went to Sushi Katsu (or is it Katsu Sushi? It's not a name that makes much sense, anyway) for dinner tonight. It's the only sushi place I've found that keeps gluten-free soy sauce on hand, so they get a great big gold star. The food was good, as usual, and the place was hoppin' busy. Given that I eat sushi five days per week at work you'd think I'd be bored of it come the weekend, but fortunately that's not the case.

No bites on the positive-attitude-LGBTQ queries here or on Twitter. Not surprising, I guess. So many communities are so slanted towards the LG end of things so it'd be interesting to find one that leaned toward the BTQ end.
