Nanococoa (No Relation to Nanowrimo)

Just popping in to let you know I haven't died of Nanococoa (medical term for: lack of chocolate - no relation to Nanowrimo). I also haven't lost any weight, which seems wickedly unfair. HOWEVER, I am exercising three times a week and, in the words of an old Chicago song, feeling stronger every day**.


I have not spent one red (or even copper) cent on clothing, make-up, jewelry, or (and this hurts to write) shoes. Not one. 
I've got precisely 10 (long, arduous, chocolate-free) days to go, but who's counting? (I mean, besides me.) At that time, you will most likely find me lying cold and dirty on a park bench buried beneath Nordstrom bags and Hostess Cupcakes wrappers.

Until then, pray for me and keep me in your chocolate-covered Franco Sarto-filled thoughts. 

I'll write again when this self-inflicted chocolate-shopping torture is over.

**Interesting fact: I actually was a young member of the audience when this show, "Chicago in The Rockies" was recorded in 1973!!!

Ruthanne: Of what? The mountains of dark chocolate I'll be consuming in 10 days? ;-))

Can't wait to *shop* and eat a huge variety of chocolate with you in just a few short weeks. And...I'm so proud of you. You are my hero.

Debra Lynn Lazar said...

Laurie, Trust me, it hasn't been all that difficult. I mean, unless you think the pink elephants and fluffy, white snowflakes flying across the room have something to do w/chocolate withdrawal...

Koralee, If you do it, be strong. There are few things in life harder than NOT eating chocolate!

This made me laugh so hard - love it! Needed this laugh . . .

Lawd. I remember eating an entire baggie of little candy bars one night recently when uber stressed and sad and after only going without sweets/chocolate about 2 weeks. Ungh.
