"Top 10 Worst Junk Foods"

I hope everybody had a drink (or two. . . or three) to Joe. I had an ice cream sundae for 'im (not true- we just needed something to follow those hot dogs). Speaking of which. . . According to this site (?), these are the top 10 worst junk foods. All plausible, but at the same time, nothing new. There was a list here, but it had things I didn't know much about, and alcohol made it in at #4. This one could only count a Starbucks drink as a "runner-up," and I know I'm not the only one who considers a Wackafrappacino as a heavier hitter than, say, pretzels. Which is to say, these are hardly the 10 Commandments.

10. Fruit drinks. But remember, you can get sugar free cranberry juice & I do love Trader Joe's applejuice.
9. White bread. I've never have Wonderbread. . . better work on that. I always get grainy bread. The more grains the better! I'm all the way up to 12. I should amend that. I get whatever bread is leftover at Target after the Sunday morning madhouse stampede that wipes out entire shelves and leaves broken bodies up and down the aisles. Wait- anybody out there had that Asian white bread that's huge and fluffy like pillows and calls itself something like "British Bread"? I love that stuff.
8. Doughnut. I love donuts. I prefer Krispy Kreme Devil's Food Cake, and any old-fashioned chocolate with chocolate glaze.
7. Decaffeinated coffee. Why are you drinking coffee if it's decaf? Silly.
6. Pop. Haha. We say soda here.
5. Diet pop. If I'm drinking soda, it's Diet Coke. With a (real) lime. I love my Diet Coke.
4. Sugary breakfast cereals. My very favorites: Lucky Charms. It turns my milk pale green :)
3. Deep-dish pizza. I'm not sure if they mean take-out or frozen? I don't usually go for this, anyway. I'm a Numero-Uno and CPK girl.
2. Ice cream. I had a peppermint candy sundae with hot fudge and nuts and whipped cream today. Better than sex.
1. French fries and potato chips. Chips stick to my teeth but I will eat french fries. Especially with seasoning salt.
I'm not doing well: 7 out of 10. But what's important is moderation. All those Greek epics are built around the moral of moderation (if Patroklos hadn't been a dumbass and put on Achilles' armor and overextended himself, if Hektor had listened to wifey, if Odysseus hadn't been a dumbass and screamed his name to the cyclops, Oedipus had stopped ragging on the blind dude and let things be) and food should be approached in the same way. Now I want to make brownies with a cheesecake swirl. Which reminds me, I need to post the pictures of the gazillion cupcakes I made for a party. Mini cupcakes are cuter than babies.

I'm not sure what the point of this post was. Howsabout. . . Life Lessons from the Complete Functional and Extremely Wise Kids at Noise Annoys.

Coming "tomorrow": Some cool music for a hot day. . .

Great, now I'm hungry.
The most pointless thing ever invented, I think, Is caffiene free diet coke. Just have some brown water instead!
