I Set a Date!

Book release?   Erm. No.
Marriage?   Well, no, obviously... since I'm already married.

Then WHAT, pray tell, did you need to set a date for? You ask...

The eating plan. That's right. It's Weighty Wednesday and that's what I've got. A date.


You see, at Meijer on Sunday, they had Paczkis. And I came to the (albeit wrong) conclusion that Fat Tuesday fell on Valentine's Day. I had visions of chocolate paczki sugar comas prancing in my head and thought, “Well that's how I want to go!”

But then I learned Meijer had just jumped the gun (and I would have to buy paczkis two weeks in a row) but it was already decided.

I may not 'do Lent'--not being Catholic and all. But what better time is there for a severe diet than when EVERYBODY is in the midst of denial?

So it's decided.

And then... My REAL blog today is over at Burrowers, Books and Balderdash where I am talking about the beauty of the FOOL as a story character...

good luck. I have been trying to get myself to set a date for months. Glad you aren't getting married since that might upset your husband greatly :).

Ah yes, Donut Day. When I lived in Poland, they used to bring all these donuts to class and sing a little song... Good luck with the eating plan!

I've never heard of a Packzi and now I suddenly feel I NEED one!

Never had a Polish jelly doughnut... Didn't even know what a pączek is. Oh my, I'm missing out! Here in Scandinavia we eat just "Fat Tuesday Buns" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semla - and even though those are really good - especially the way my mom makes them - isn't it interesting that mom always makes the best of everything, even when she really can't cook or bake? :-D

Never had a Packzi! (Pazki?) But I bet I would love em! Ok, heading over to read the other blog now.

I once got offered the early morning donut making job at Duncan Donuts. That would have been a HUGE mistake.

Helena said...

I never knew what a paczki was but now I want one. Pastries and cheese are my weakness.

Tonight I had three beers and a great meal in an Indian restaurant. Not a day for diets, obviously. Maybe tomorrow, I should probably loose a few pounds >:)
