Twelve Lame Excuses

As you probably can guess... this would be about the FITNESS PLAN (that is no longer)... (and brief, as I have a LOT of editing to do this weekend—I am still determined to finish my LEGACY edit, but I also want to get my Cozy edit solidly done before Christmas... the PLAN being all the big point edits this weekend and then the 'read it all and smooth next week).

So on the... whatever day of Twelvsies, her Tartness gives to you.... Twelve Lame Excuses!

1)    But IN bed is Cozy. OUT of bed is COLD!

2)    5am comes REALLY EARLY!

3)    Can't you see I was DYING of hunger!? (okay, so maybe not DEATH exactly, but real discomfort...)


5)    The rum made me do it.

6)    Well NOW it's just too SLIPPERY!

7)    That eggnog TOTALLY had my name on it.

8)    These cookies (and the FUDGE!) only come around once a year.

9)    NOBODY is supposed to diet during the holidays (yes, I start holiday season at Labor Day)


11)  You KNOW I'll just get all pouty if everyone else is and I'm not.


So there you have it... and that last one is today's excuse. I won't be around for reciprocity this weekend (much) because I am doing ALL my shopping, wrapping and any lame attempt at carding of the season in addition to my bigger edits on the cozy and finishing this round on editing legacy (did you hear the whip crack? What a taskmaster) so I am off now to SHOP (eek gad-it's barely 9, SHOPPING? Seriously?) yup.

Hope you all have a fabulous and productive weekend!!! I Loves you, Bloggie friends!

I like these especially #'s 5 and 9. Edit, Girl, keep it going.

The Words Crafter said...

#'s 1, 4, and 8 are sooooo me! Good luck getting all your goals met for the weekend.

My philosophy is, if I'm gonna get into trouble, I'm gonna make it worth my while. So, make sure you get some really scrumptious goodies to use for fuel :)

Nobody but you could come up with a list like this. Unless it is someone who will blame it on his grandmother.

I think you need to start the season around the Fourth of July instead. Maybe Memorial Day!

Old Kitty said...

Well I think shopping and running round shops and wrapping and doing all sorts of active christmas stuff is SO exercise!!!!! So there!!

GOOD LUCK!!!!! And have a brilliant, brilliant weekend!! Yep - almost eight days to the BIG DAY!! Yikes and whoopee!! Take care

#5...I seem to have used that one a time or two. Have fun fighting the unruly shopping horde. I'm wrapping.

CA Heaven said...

Shopping at 9am, that's EARLY on a Saturday. I din't wake up before 11:30 today. I guess one week of full work days and late nights writing on my so-called novel just required a long morning sleeping at some point >:)

Cold As Heaven

Elizabeth Spann Craig said...

Sounds like some good excuses to me!

Southpaw said...

I love these. My favorite is #11.

Hart Johnson said...

HAHA! I love people putting favorites! Shopping mostly ACCOMPLISHED! And I made a list of my Cozy edits--not as overwhelming as I feared... so I'm feeling better (though not well enough to eat right or exercise...)

Alex-I like how you think! Memorial day it is!

Chris Phillips said...

#5 is not a lame excuse it is my mantra!

Golden Eagle said...

Yes, 5 AM is pretty early!

Rusty Carl said...

Ugh. Fitness. I spend way to much of my free time exercising as it is. Don't go down that path if you don't have to.

Mary Mary said...

Excuses, excuses, but that's fine. We all have some good ones!

M.J. Nicholls said...

Too busy to eat or exercise, you say? Surely if you don't eat you don't need to exercise? QED.

Cheeseboy said...

Only 12? I mean they are a solid 12 and each one is legit. I could think of a bunch more including "__________ really hurts right now. I need to rest it."

Anonymous said... I blame it on alcohol.

But 5am certainly does come early, especially with children up in the night coughing and such. It makes me cranky. For serious.

Michael Di Gesu said...

We all need our excuses... IF we didn't have them we would all be such biotches!


When you get the chance check out my entry for twisted fairytale. I think you'll find it very amusing.

I Must Be Off said...

I often use the "brain needs fuel" excuse.

Jan Morrison said...

yes well ...later. It's not as if it's going anywhere. That's what I think anywho. Who could diet this time of year? Pointless.
I'm wrapping my few gifts for little ones and making candy! Yay! I love making candy! I might even eat some! I will eat some! So I have something to do in January!!!

Ella said...

Tis the season to be holidazed! 1,4,5,6 sound like me. Wine instead of rum!

I agree you will burn some off rushing around!
You can do it! Then celebrate later~ Dieting this time of year is a set up for failure, IMHO.
