Jeremiah broke tonight. :'( A piece of the plastic casing by the battery broke off when I was putting the battery cap back on. Now I see that there is a crack running down to a seam in the casing. None of my minimed pumps ever did this, but then again, I've had this pump for a year and a half, and none of my minimed pumps lasted that long! I'm calling tomorrow to get a new one. I'm not quite sure how it's going to work, since I'm in the dorm. I'm only here some of the time. I know they can't just leave the pump here, so I'm not sure how they will want to handle it. Now the really, big, important question is: what color should I get?? Should I still with the traditional, yet slightly boring, gray? Or should I be adventurous and get a blue or purple one? http://www.cozmore.com/default.cfm/PID=1.2
Opinions anyone?

*edit* No atomic purple for me. The lady said they prefer that I keep the same color. Oh well, it was worth a shot! (No pun intended) She also said that when a piece falls off like that, they have a higher rate of spontaneously restarting. Yikes! My new pump should be here tomorrow. So now, is the new pump still Jeremiah, or does he get a new name?

I vote purple, I vote purple!!

I'm a little obsessed with purple pumps, I think, because I've never had the opportunity to have one.

Gray does have the advantage of going with pretty much everything though.

I like your blog btw :)

What do you mean you have to stay with the same color why ? you should be able to get what you want ??

I don't know why. She just said that I could switch when they upgraded??? I wasn't really 100%sure I wanted a new color, so I didn't argue with her.
