The Eating of Stress.

I want the cookie. I can easily imagine myself walking up to the counter and asking for an oatmeal raisin cookie and then paying $1.07 and walking away with refined sugar goodness. It’s easy to imagine this, I’ve done it hundreds of times.

And yes I know, refined sugar isn’t good for you. I think it has to be better than the High Fructose Corn Syrup that’s usually present and come to think of it, present in my cookie.

It’s because of stress. I don’t like eating chocolate when I’m stressed. I usually head for pistachios or something else nutty. But the cookie is calling out to me.

I am strong. I shall not eat the cookie. I won’t even order the cookie. I have turned the page in the script and have moved on in this play of life.

I’ll just lick my desk when I get back to work and enjoy some dust. It’s low cal.

RIP Donna Summer.

I just read on Twitter (and then in the news) that disco diva Donna Summer passed on this morning at age 63. Her passing is after a battle with cancer.

I am very sad.

An amazing singer, her life path had some bumps here and there but one thing was certain, she had an amazing gift with her voice and she brought happiness to millions of people through her music.

RIP, LaDonna. We will miss you very much.
