Thank You!

All we have of freedom, all we use or know -
This our fathers bought for us long and long ago.
~Rudyard Kipling, The Old Issue, 1899

So this Memorial Day got me to thinking...

I want to say THANK YOU, to those who have served, do serve and will serve.

I once confessed here on this very blog, to my reading public, that I was a procrastinating perfectionist addicted to M&Ms... well time for an update... or really a confession, I am still putting off plenty of tasks (because I want to wait until I can give them my "best" effort) and this morning I had Diet Coke and M&Ms for breakfast.

I can, and will, produce a list of genuine reasons (read: excuses) why I made my culinary decision today:
1) I just got back from vacation and haven't had a chance to stop by the grocery store to purchase delicious and healthy oatmeal.
2) I forgot to grab my yogurt from the fridge... and who wants to eat granola without yogurt?!
3) The M&Ms are from New York and I was using them as a reminder of my grand adventures this past weekend.
4) I'm allergic to everything BUT M&Ms and Diet Coke...

Okay so maybe this last one is a lie, but sometimes the only thing I want in life is some genuine colored sugar wrapped nicely around some dark chocolate goodness and a can of liquid fake sugar pumped up with massive amounts of caffeine... Is that so wrong?

I think not!

But I, like Amy Winehouse, have some issues. Sure my addictions include aspartame, caffeine, NPR, loud jewelry and fuchsia leggings and she is a fan of the more lightweight stuff like cocaine, bulimia and cutting.

Amy Winehouse has issues... and she also has a song called "Rehab" (YouTube video here)

"They tried to make me go to rehab. I said "No. No. No."
