I Fought the Pie and the Pie Lost...

...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?


  1. Banana's, i think you need to get over that one... hee hee hee, i listen to much worse than that. Thanks shelley for being so supportive of me, and always sending me positive comments, i really appreciate it!I am glad that you had a nice Christmas and hope that WE all have a successful 2009! Luv ya girl!

  2. Congrats on the pie victory! Every choice you make is a step to a changed mindset :D

    As for the song, not sure - that's why I listen to jazz and classical LOL!

  3. I'm curious... did you spend that extra 99 cents? If it were me I'd just live with that sh!t and think of it as a bit of rebellion, in the mid-40's kinda way.

    Great job making good choices and I agree with you, I'm ready to get back to some better eating habits!

    Happy New Year!

  4. No, I didn't spend another 99 cents...but I still crack up whenever I listen to that song!
