Friday Comes Early

It may only be Thursday, but it certainly feels like Friday. It has all day and it still does at 10:30pm. I love that. I think it's a good sign for the long weekend.

I added the last fm widget on my page, but I don't know what's going on with it. It's not showing anything. I don't know if it's because I haven't played enough songs yet or if I screwed something up. I'm going to leave it there for a few days and see if anything changes.

I keep forgetting to mention this, but I passed the 9 month soda-free mark earlier this week. I can't believe I've gone that long. I'm really not not drinking soda anymore, I just haven't had one yet. I've had two dreams in the last week or so in which I've had Diet Cokes. Both times I remember drinking the soda and then once the deed was done, I'd remember that I wasn't drinking soda anymore. Weird, huh? Ken asked me if Joan Van Ark gave me a soda in any of the dreams. I know this is a weird question, but I tend to have dreams (on a semi-regular basis) featuring B, C and D list celebrities. Although I have never had a dream about Joan Van Ark, that certainly would be one I would have.

Congrats on your non-soda drinking! I think the world would be a better place sans-soda. Well maybe just Sprite Zero...for adult beverage mixing purposes only!

That is amazing - 9 months without soda! I did read somewhere that people who drank diet drinks, on average consumed more fatty foods. They didn't know if it made them crave them or not, but statistically they ate more fat calories. So you may want to stick with NO SODA for awhile. It could be helping you in ways you don't realize.

That said, who knows if these studies ever mean anything!?!

Love an Kisses,

Laura

Lauren - what a sad thought. A world without soda is a world I don't think I'd want to live in. :-) Just because we aren't speaking now doesn't mean the cold war between me and the good (diet) Doctor Pepper is going to go on forever.

Laura - I hadn't heard that diet soda makes you crave fatty foods more. Fatty foods are the most delicious of all the food groups. And trust me, I still crave them. I calculated it earlier today, and I believe I'm 9 days shy of 300 soda free days. I can't remember the last time I did anything for 300 consecutive days.
