i’ve been totally intrigued by some of the suggestions that my facebook and even nonfacebook friends have been giving me for how to deal with my breakup with mr. pinot grigio.
and it sort of makes sense. alcohol is converted into sugar by your liver. so why not replace the alcoholic sugars with some regular old-fashioned not so good but not quite as bad for you sugar?
i went to a self-pity party last night around midnight. i couldn’t get to sleep. had made a promise to not have a drink. had run out of hulu.com sitcoms–raising hope, the office, 30 rock, parks and recreation–to watch. downton abbey season three is over and so, it seemed, was my life.
i am the sort to have a last glass of wine after dinner instead of wasting my calories on dessert but i decided to give this sugar substitution a try. i read the evelyn waugh book “scoop” while consuming the following: a one pound bag of jelly beans, a box of dark chocolate chip cookies, a box of chocolate covered raspberries, a reese’s package i found in the freezer, four girl scout cookies (the thin mints) and a mango. the mango was purely so i could cop to being a healthy eater.
i slept. in fact, i overslept. and i wonder–is the world going to love a 200 pound smokin’ hot me?
