Now ladies, put down those can openers!

I have been given the ole Hong Kong Phooey over at Cara’s. She says I am the Hoover Dam of creativity and that she can eat Spaghetti O’s if she wants to. (and it looks like Vicki thinks they’re pretty tasty too). I will admit to the whole creativity damper thing and agree that Cara can and should knit whatever she wants to. But I will NOT GIVE ONE INCH on the Spaghetti O’s debate. Once you are on that culinary road to Perdition, you should just crack open a can of Spam and get it over with. yeah, I said it.

In further food talk my peeps, I have some sad news for you all. There is 6½ pounds less of me to love! Last night was my first week WW weigh in. The first week is always so motivating – all that water weight gone. I am planning on posting my weekly progress or lack thereof, in an effort to keep this ball a rollin’, this swine a losin’. It worked with the quit smoking and hopefully will have the same result with the chub.

Can you tell I have no knitting news to share? I should be finished with the second Oak Ribbed Sock today and have some pictures for tomorrow. And tonight is my spinning guild meeting – tomorrow should be chock full o fiber!

  1. I recently took some heat from friends for disrespecting Spam on my blog. I’m so glad to see you and I are as one on this topic. I’m with you on the Spaghetti-O’s issue as well. Bleh!

  2. Make mine Mini Ravioli — and just every now and then, you know! ; ) I wonder how many points that is… probably a LOT!

    Congratulations to you!!!

  3. Congratualtions on your recent loss!

    (gee. That looks like it could be a greeting card for someone who’d just completed a divorce. Or a contract hit on the ex. oh well)

  4. I entirely agree with you–so long as you’re over the age of, say, 10. I did rather enjoy Spaghetti-Os when I was a kid, though thankfully, I outgrew that!

  5. Having married into an italian family and being a WASP, I learned fast that and “sauce” in a can or jar is just that. It is GRAVY. I always thought gravy was brown…but getting back to the “o’s”. That being said, even I know that pasta in a can is blasphemy. I get the shivers just thinking about it.
    Congrats on the weight loss. I am jealous because I cannot find the inner strength to start.

  6. I’m with you Anne! Once you’ve dived into the Spaghetti-O’s, can Beenie Weenies be far behind? Congrats on the weight loss! On paper 6 pounds doesn’t seem like much, but when you pick up a 5 pound sack of flour and realize you’re not carrying that around anymore, it’s monumental! Way to go!
