Avoiding the Christmass

In a few short hours I will be on my way home to Indiana for four days to celebrate Christmas. I'm so unbearably excited that I can't focus on my work!

I've spent the past few days checking out The Onion online - my apologies to those I've inundated with links to funny stories - and eating. Man, have I been eating.

It hasn't been too bad, really. There are just so many treats around that I can't ignore. Just the other day, my friend Cheryl gave me a bag of her homemade ginger almond biscotti. How am I going to turn that down? I drink coffee, so it can't hurt to have a little dip of hard cookie loaded with almonds and crystalized ginger, can it?

So it can. Fuck you. I had my weigh in last night, and I gained a pound. That's not too bad. Hell, it's not the 10 pounds that I can gain from week to week. I have a feeling that once these damn holidays are over I can really focus on my weight.

For now, I'm just going to enjoy the best of the best treats - in moderation, of course - while I can, and by next Wednesday I'll have control again.

Oh! And Saturday's my birthday. I'll try and blog about my entry into the 2nd half of my twenties, though I doubt it will be very interesting. So I can rent a car...big whoop.

I'll leave you with my favorite infographic from The Onion. Can you guess my favorite?

So there's that,

Well I'm not sure about you, but Cap'n Bloodsnatch is my favorite.

Hope to see you on or before Christmas!
