Dinner For One

Speaking of dinner, I think it's completely mean and evil of my workplace to decide to hold the big holiday potluck bash on January 2nd. I mean, I wasn't here for it because I work swing shift, but there is all manner of leftover turkey, ham, STUFFING, casseroles and cookies in the fridge in the kitchen. How the hell is one supposed to start a new year by resolving to eat healthier when they leave all this food here? Sigh. Tomorrow. I'll start tomorrow.

About four or five years ago, I was introduced to an awesome German (and other European countries, I think) tradition by one of my best friends, who is German. Every New Year's Eve, they watch an old British black and white comedy sketch called Dinner For One. It's about 10 minutes long. For these past four or five years, we have always celebrated New Year's with these friends, and we always watch this. Now, it's on You Tube! This is amusing at least, but when you've had a few drinks, it's downright hilarious.

Cheerio, Miss Sophie!

I'm not starting my diet until Monday. I still need a few more days to eat all the stuff from the holidays still!!!

That video was funny!

I'm with you, starting Monday, definitely. What is it about seasoned bread pieces with celery and onion that just makes me lose my mind? I swear, I could subsist soley on stuffing. It's even better if it was cooked inside a bird, salmonella be damned!
