She’s got fancy pants.

Hi there!

Today, for possibly the first time in, um, oh it could be longer than a year, I’ve gone without a Diet Coke.

I KNOW! But listen. It’s not like I’m giving it up. I just wanted to see how bad I’ve gotten, how addicted I REALLY am. And I will admit, I’ve been a tad bit headachy and snippy, but other than that I don’t think it’s too bad.

I’m not saying I’ll never have one again, I’m not saying I won’t have one tomorrow, I’m just saying I didn’t have one today and it was a small victory. Not because I think Diet Coke is SO BAD, no, no I think it’s glorious, but it was a small victory just to prove to all those nay-sayers that I could and I did.


Then again, it’s only 5pm.

I’ll keep you posted.

In OTHER NEWS! This weekend I gocco-pressed these little suckers…and they are now in my shop.

    well, if it makes you feel better, I went and got a diet coke today, and thought i'd switch it up a bit. I added a squirt of vanilla. DISGUSTING. I must have added WAY too much because it was basically a vanilla soda. seriously nasty. so, i basically went all day without a diet coke too. you cant even count that one. so sad.

    I can't think of something I've consumed every day for a year, let alone a chemical with no nutritious value and adverse side effects.

    "A sweet taste induces an insulin response, which causes blood sugar to be stored in tissues (including fat), but because blood sugar does not increase with artificial sugars, there is hypoglycemia and increased food intake the next time there is a meal."

    Alison much like yourself I love a daily soda. Unlike yourself I love a daily full calorie soda. Either way in the past few months I have been taking some weekly time outs from my soda and I also take every day soda free as a larger victory.
    Bob, if you want your opinion to be taken seriously try citing something more credible than Wikipedia. You know any one can write those definitions right?

  7. ferociousnate

    Yeah, and what about water Bob? Have you stopped drinking water? Because if you did, you would die.

  8. Nate Housley

    Is Oprah a credible enough source for you? I know she is, because all girls watch Oprah while drinking their diet Cokes.

  9. Alison

    Oh bobby,


    You're so silly, Oprah is SO passe! I mean really, all of us silly people watch Ellen now!

    I don't drink diet coke, but my parents do, and my husband, ever since we've been married has had a strange inclination toward it, is drinking diet coke a married thing?

    i love your ponies! and that we are on the verge of friendship! yes, let's do get together and make things, have you ever felted? If school doesn't ground me and tell me that I may not go out with friends, we will invite you guys over for dinner in the near future!
