wonky people are ubiquitous and drive me bonkers.
OK. The truth is, I have no idea if this is even true (or um, like grammatically correct) but if it was – it probably would drive me bonkers.
But I just wanted – no, needed – an excuse to use up 3 of my favorite words (wonky, bonkers, ubiquitous) in one sentence. See, I am having food as comfort kinda day and was searching for fun distractions from eating. I have a history of distracting myself from chips by eating pizza. Or distracting myself from chocolate by eating candy. Apparently, this is not ideal.
(Oh sidebar: I used to be all about the quotation marks but now I just thrive on italics. Another useful distraction.)
So, basically I have temporarily given up all things associated with munching: reading, tv, bathing (yep, this is done. A good friend once told me her son’s favorite bathtime activity was to make a bowl of buttery-goodness popcorn and put it into a big ‘ol flat bottomed bowl so it floats and enjoy it in the bath. I dare you not to try this!), movies, phone calls – anything where my hands are left unattended basically. As previously mentioned, I have read a few books on diet & nutrition, I just find their
hellful helpful suggestions about as useful as a useful as a fish on a bicycle
I could Get a hobby, Join a club, do yoga, collect stamps or dance. Yep, I can dance??
Screw it – here is my list of pathetic (yet effective) distractions.
Feel free (I am begging you actually) to add your ideas:
online shopping at anthropologie for things I cannot afford
searching for split ends
create iTunes playlist for our holiday party (where 100 people bring mounds & mounds of delicious food)
watch Liz Lemon mash-ups (except for all the food references – so like, almost all of them)
