(This post was written a few weeks ago. Please backtrack your brain a few weeks and it will all make sense.)
I am THRILLED at how long the days have been, how light they have been.
I love the long days.
I am so sad that tomorrow is the longest day of the year.
Because it will only get darker and darker.
I hate darker.
Colder follows darker.
And colder is my nemesis.
That, and lowfattier.
Speaking of low fat, I had a sad realization today: I can now drink most diet drinks without cringing.
I am still 99% sure that diet drinks give you cancer.
But at least they don’t give you love handles.
So it’s probably worth it.
I still really love a full-sugar Coke.
Don’t think I’m ever going to be one of those people whose all, “Oh, I can’t stand full-sugar pop now. It’s too sweet.”
“Too sweet” is not, and never will be, in my vocabulary.
Unless we’re talking about chocolate.
Because milk chocolate is too sweet.
And it is DISGUSTING.
But back to what I was saying, I really actually like Diet Mountain Dew.
And I can actually drink a Crystal Light without gagging from the aspertaste.
And today I actually drank some of a Diet Coke without gagging.
Do you hear what I'm saying, people???
I think the temperature in hell just dropped 10 degrees.
Speaking of 10 degrees, hasn’t the weather been crazy lately?
And, no, it doesn’t matter if you don’t live where I live because I’m pretty sure spring weather is crazy everywhere.
Didn’t you get snow two weeks ago and 80 degree temps this week? See? Ok maybe not.
The carnival is in town.
I like the carnival.
I like crowded places in general.
Like airports. And movie theater bathrooms. And busy downtowns.
They make for great people watching.
But not as good as the people watching at carnivals.
OOOOOOOoooooooman, it's good. I will bring my camera when I go tonight and see if I can get some good shots.
It will be better than that website about people you see at Wal-mart.
I will not be eating the funnel cakes at the carnival.
I am on a diet.
I will not be eating the caramel apples at the carnival.
The caramel is made of plastic.
And everyone knows that eating plastic gives you cancer.
So I will have a Diet Coke instead.
I guess I prefer to drink my cancer than eat it.
