Special K Diet Fail

We’re almost into April and I still haven’t lost that four pounds I gained over the holidays. Normally, I don’t have to worry about the holiday poundage because it comes off quickly with my winter work schedule.

Not this year.

So, since I can no longer button two of my skirts, I got the bright idea of trying the Special K diet.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with it, it works like this… each day, for two weeks, you have 1 cup of Special K with 2/3 cup of skim milk for breakfast and lunch. You can have two snacks throughout the day followed by a normal dinner. And in those 14 days you’re supposed to lose up to six pounds.

Sounds easy enough.

So I started my day with 1 cup of cereal. Mid-morning I ate snack number one. A banana. About 12:30 I ate another cup of cereal.

And at 3pm, my second snack….

An entire tube of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies.

Although it wasn’t specified, I’m pretty sure that GS cookies weren’t what they had in mind as a snack when they devised this diet plan.

I think I would have been farther ahead had I not wasted the calories eating the Special K in the first place.

See that gleam in Mr. Chipmunk’s eye? I’d be willing to bet that he’ll be passing out cigars in just a few short weeks……

My day job is still kicking my butt and I can’t see the top of my desk for all the files. But I’m hoping to have everything under control by the end of next week so I can resume my otherwise irregular posting schedule.

In the meantime, for your amusement, here are some comments left by Mike, from The Fly is Undeterred.

His captions for this photo made me chortle and snort, so I thought I’d pull them to the top for those of you that don’t peruse the comments.

So, without further ado…

“Financial Crisis forces retirees into life of prostitution”

“Tractor pull features interesting side attractions”

“Farmer by day, Pimp by night”

“When Grannies go wild”

“Short shorts cause premature aging of the skin”

“Underage sex not a problem in Idaho”



It’s a sad, sad day in the Kewlstuff household.

I told you how I forgot to put a filter in the basket of my Cuisinart in this post. And I told you how I loved, loved, loved that coffeemaker in this post.

Well, I did it again. Forgot to put a filter in the basket. And this time, when the coffee rose up and out of the basket, it soaked the circuit panel.

My beloved coffeemaker has been in a coma since.

Mr. Kewl Stuff, who has mad technical skillz, even tried resuscitating it with the blow dryer.

But there’s still water in the little clock window. It’s digital numbers just flutter, then disappear altogether.

I’m afraid I shall never hear the sweet sound of it happily brewing my freshly ground coffee from it’s little corner of the kitchen again.

Okay Ladies….

After weeks of single digit temps, the thermometer has finally reached 30 degrees.

That means it’s time for us to take a serious look at our summer wardrobes… and think about losing those extra four pounds we gained by eating seven pounds of cookies last Christmas. By my calculations, we have approx 60 days to accomplish this.

So, for inspiration, I found a picture that we can print and hang on the fridge……
