This and That

Managed to do a little more Christmas shopping last night. Inching closer to being done. Still haven't finished the cards.

Stuffed my face full of the chocolate covered peanuts mom sent me yesterday. Thanks, Mom, you diet killer you. Ah well, today is another day and if this season's Biggest Loser can take off 214 pounds, surely I should be able to manage forty. Gah.

Am having a couple of the children's friends over for a traditional Hanukkah meal this Friday night. We are not able to have a Christmas party this year...when I told my friend that she laughed and said, "Oh, so your changing religions?" I told her I would do it just one night for the food. I know, I know, traditional Hanukkah food is fried in oil. I'll make it olive oil, okay? It's heart smart! Am having latkes with sourcream and applesauce, honey puffs and whatever I dig up. Should be fun.

Am still denying myself all pleasure.

Finished another article yesterday. Have three left. Then I'm going on vacation, baby! Well, not actually going... just taking a break. From nonfiction anyway. Have a bunch of stuff to do in Fiction. YAY!

Okay, I'm outta here.

I don't see a problem here. Peanuts are chock full of protein, which you need to make your body strong so it will burn calories more efficiently. Ergo, peanuts are diet food.

The chocolate contains fat, true, but you need that to satisfy your hunger so you will eat less. It also has calcium in it, which studies show helps increase weight loss. Chocolate = diet food.

As for the latkes and sour cream-y treats (yum!!!), you're on your own. But cut yourself some slack on the comfort food from home. ;?)

I told you yesterday the correct way to spell Chanukah. Don't make me bring a Menorah, a dreidel and some gelt! Don't make me tell you about the Maccabees and the Beit Hamikdash. But I will give you a mitzvot for being a good gentile! LOL
