OMG!

. . . I forgot how tasty 100 Grand bars are!


. . . I'm already super, really, a lot tired of being cold!

. . . I smoked my last cigarette at about 10:30 last Saturday morning!

. . . I'm obsessed with flat filigree earrings right now!

. . . I wore a bright yellow sticker on my forehead in public this morning in exchange for a Rice Krispie treat!

. . . I think I'm Old Christine!

. . . This makes me want to hurl!

The tasted even better way back when they were call "$100,000 Bars" In places that don't use the dollar, why didn't the DAMN Swiss just call it the "Royale with cheese"?

And last smokey treat EVER, or last in the pack, and it's too FRAK'n cold to run to the store right now?

Gwen said...

Ever.

As a smoker myself I wish you the best of luck, it's frikking hard to quit - I've heard.

Falwless said...

I would just like to state, for the record, that 4 minutes after that last presidential debate went off air I made a Facebook status update predicting that Joe the Plumber would get a spin-off series.

I was pretty damn close.

Also, that is absolutely ridiculous.

Falwless said...

Oh yeah, and girrrrrl, I'm so proud of you for the cigarettes thing. It'll be one year quit for me in two days.

You can do eeeet!!

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

As someone whose younger brother has tried to quit smoking more times than he can count, I wish you good luck with the quitting.

LM said...

Good for you on the cigarettes! Just don't become addicted to 1000 grand bars now please.

RW said...

100 Grands are good substitutes for smoking. but nothing will make me give up my cigars.

Whiskeymarie said...

Might I suggest, in place of the smokies, that you start macrame-ing things for gifts. I'd really like to see macrame make a comeback and you need something to keep your hands busy- it's a win-win situation!

I'd like a macrame owl, please.

Congrats on the smoking - And the earrings are VERY cute!

Oh, and fuck the plumber.

Renaissance Woman said...

Yay for you...no more smoking. And now, I want to eat a 100 Grand bar.

Amy and Jeff said...

Good for you Gwen! My sister just quit cold turkey in May and she smoked for 23 years so I have faith that anyone can do it if she did.

MelO said...

OMG! OMG! OMG!

Congratulations! Good for you on the no smoking! It's sooo hard but it's sooo worth it. :) I'm so proud of you.

Two nights ago I literally just asked a friend of mine "who eats these 100 grand bars anymore, anyway?"

She immediately got all offended and I was like, "ACTUALLY... they ARE pretty good."

LOL. I like anything with nougat. :)

MelO said...

p.s. I just passed 1 year and 7months. I'm hoping by the time I hit "2 years" I'll stop counting the months (and days and hours).

:)

You go girl!

Fancy Schmancy said...

Good for you on quitting smoking! I just don't want to, yet.

Joe the Plumber needs to go the F away, already.

Some Guy said...

I agree with everyone else. The guy whose name isn't Joe who isn't officially a plumber needs to go back to where he came from. I have absolutely zero interest in anything he says or does. Period.

Gwen said...

BTW, WHERE THE FUCK IS THAT FUCKING ZIBBS? DOESN'T HE REALIZE THAT THE SLIGHTEST THING SETS ME OFF TODAY?

I've seen him over at other people's places. Is he pissed at me? WHAT DID I DOOOO?

The Lady Who Doesn't Lunch: said...

Good job on kicking cigarettes to the curb! I consider myself quit, but but still struggle. My best friend Amy quit a long time ago, but still keeps a pack of Marlboro Lights tucked in the back of her freezer in case of emergency - she hasn't busted into them yet even though her ex husband is a constant pain in her ass and she has been taking her beloved dog Rita to chemotherapy. This gives me hope - so I hope it does you too.

MelO said...

I heard he was having a 'long lunch' with Joe the Plumber.

Dr Zibbs said...

um..umm. Now I can't think of anything. I read this post earlier and I think I tried to comment..I don't know what happened. And per you question on my blog, THAT BLUE YAK, how could I be mad at you Gwen? It's impossible.

Jennifer and Sandi said...

Congrats on the not smoking. PUT THAT CIGARETTE DOWN RIGHT NOW!!

- Jennifer

McGone said...

Damn - I blew all my good smoking comments on the Facebook IM to you last night. I don't want to double dip.

Moe Wanchuk said...

Hey....do you remember the Marathon Bar?....It lasts a long...LOOOONNNNGG Tiime!

I loved those

Gwen said...

Moe: OMG! The Marathon bar was my absolute favorite! The foot (or more) of braided caramel covered in chocolate . . . droool! The public pool in my hometown froze the candy bars so they wouldn't melt in the 100 degree weather, and the Marathon would bust up into tiny bits with one whack. You know, I looked ALL OVER the Internet trying to find one - there are sites that still sell supposedly discontinued candy - and couldn't find it. Great memory. Thanks, Moe!

Moe Wanchuk said...

If you ever find it...make sure you tell me!

enc said...

Congratulations on not smoking!

BeckEye said...

I am also already sick of being cold.

But I can't wait for Joe's first hip-hop single, "Plumber Got Crack."

LENORENEVERMORE said...
