...can you tell that I've been checking out the oldies on iTunes? More on that in a minute, but first, PIE. Specifically pumpkin pie. Cold, yummy, leftover-from-Christmas pumpkin pie. Pie that I have not eaten since my one piece after our Christmas dinner. It was easy to not have pie on Friday morning, considering that I was still pretty full from everything I ate on Thursday. But Saturday night rolled around, and the pie started calling my name, and while I admit I contemplated having a piece for a split-second, I chose an apple instead. Victory is mine! Yes, at this point I'll claim anything! I think Linda from Fat Don't Wrinkle (so true!) said it best in this post - I'm not binging, but I am indulging. And quite frankly, I'm getting sick of it. I am actually ready to get back to my healthy eating...could it be that the six-plus months I spent eating well have actually influenced my mindset? Please let it be true! Anyway, I've been back on the stick for a couple of days now and feel much better. Coincidence? I think not!
So on to iTunes...I've downloaded some songs - mostly really old stuff from the 70's, (Boogie Fever, anybody?) but I liked a couple of Gwen Stefani songs that I heard on the radio so decided to get them. On "Holla Back Girl" I had the option to choose the "clean" or "explicit" version - well, I figured that when I heard the song on the radio, there was nothing in it that offended me, so I chose "explicit" - um...hello? Back in the day, you bought a record album. Period. There were no options - but I guess for the most part, there was no need for them. Oh, how the times have changed! Yeah, so I'm a bit embarrassed to play this song out loud...let's just say that her sh!t is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S. And I'm in a pickle. Do I spend another 99 cents to get the clean version? Or live with the sh!t?
