    So This Thing Happened

    If you don't know this already, I have albinism.  It is a genetic condition (don't worry, you can't catch it from me) and the kind I have (there are many) shows up 1 in 17 000 live births on average.  Anyway, the UN has been at the forefront of trying to explain to people that we are just like anyone else, except on the outside (oh and except for our shitty vision).  So, they have been collecting stories and such from people.  Well, it turns out that one of the people they are featuring on their website is me!  (As an aside, I use parentheses way too often).

    The local (and by local I mean 330 km away....) CBC station picked it up and had an interview with me.  You can listen to the interview here.  I think I did ok, though the guy misprounounced my name.  To his credit there is a typo on the website.
