As all, like... 9, of my faithful readers know, last week I was trying to be inspired by Heffalumps, Sugar Free for Two Weeks post(I Write About Nothing on my side bar) . Due to Monthly Munchies Syndrome, I was unable to find that inspiration last week; but, this is a new week.
Then while reading Barbaloots (see side bar) post, Campaign for Obesity, she mentioned that she and a friend observe Lent by swearing of Junk Food for 45 days. Being the, sensitive to others religious views, type that I am, I boldly invited myself to join their junkless observance, and Barbaloot graciously made the invitation formal; like she had a choice, kinda like knowing in the first 30 seconds of the blind date that it's just not gonna work out for you and fuzzy dice on the rear view mirror man, but... you still have to be nice.
So, thanks Barbaloot for the nice invitation and the inspiration. I had my own little Carnaval yesterday at the Blue and Gold Banquet, one little piece of cake from 10 different cakes made by, proud to share 8 - 10 year old boys, adds up to a cake gobbling feast, no beads were involved. I began my penance at midnight last night, I'll think lovingly of better health, a few less pounds and a Reece's Easter Bunny in 45 days.
By the way both of these women have fantastic blogs, be sure to check them out.
