A Craving For Friday

I feel 110% dead this morning.

But, I'm completely in Love!!! Seriously, I'm totally infatuated, and lustfully in love...

With this delicious piece of cake!!
It may have something to do with the fact that I overslept like a poisoned Cinderella and had to rush like mad to get going, so I had no time for breakfast. Skipping breakfast is a BIG diet "No-No!" You've heard it all before, you know I'm right and all the nutritional reasons, so I won't go into that. Just don't skip meals, your metabolism will get trashed and your body will store fat like a warmonger planning for the apocalypse. But it is Friday, and it started off badly, so I couldn't help it. Now I'm sitting here plotting what to go and binge on for food.

Calling all Chocoholics, are you out there? I am a self-professed chocoholic but I have really gotten much better than I used to be. I remember a time when I would go into my Mother's cabinet and open up a can of chocolate cake frosting that she had stored for her 'next cake', and I would secretly open it and get a spoonful. Then I would sneak a spoon or two more. Pretty much after that I would come to the realization that I couldn't let her know that I opened and ate the frosting, so I would just end up finishing the thing and go buy another one to replace it so she wouldn't know... Is that sick or what??

Speaking of sick, when I was 13 I remember we had some weird sort of chocolate "flavored" treats for the dog we had at the time (miniature poodle named "Buffy"). Now I know dog's can't eat chocolate itself, so who knows what these treats were really made of, but you guessed it, chocoholic Jackie ate some. Well, I didn't die, I didn't even get sick, and they were actually pretty good.

Funny (or rather nasty) some of the things we'll do when we have certain food addictions. I guess any addiction can be bad, maybe that one was not as bad as some, but it still seems gross now looking back. What is the craziest thing you've ever done for a craving or an addiction?
