Making the Tough Choices


I have a little time on my hands this afternoon, time I didn't expect to have.


So I had to ask myself,


"Do you want to go to the gym?"


Hmmmmmm.


"...or do you want to stuff handfulls of popcorn in yer piehole and mess about on the internet?"

Clearly you made the right decision!

I join you in the gym defiance. I worked from home today and technically could have/should have gone to the gym, but nah.

Nancy said...

LOL.. why stop at popcorn, go for it girl. Take a spoon the the carton of ice cream, move on over to just one cookie, hit up a piece of left over Christmas candy, then wash it down with a caramel latte!

Hit the gym tomorrow =)

popcorn is cooler than situps.

but both activities make me want to wear sweatpants.

liv said...

you chose wisely, sister friend. i think i'll go pop some myself.

Beck said...

You can eat my share of the popcorn - I'm allergic.
(sitting here eating gummy worms, thanks.)

Edge said...

Good choice!

PunditMom said...

Like that was even a choice?? ;)

I usually choose the latter!

Paige said...

I am reveling in the multilingual popcorn bag pictured "aqui."

My choice, too :)

Heidi

Kelly said...

Me too girl!

WILLIAM said...

The Gym would not get stuck in your teeth.

Mrs. Fussy Fussypants said...

Oh, the good decisions!

sweatpantsmom said...

I vote for popcorn, pieholes and the internet, but that's just me.

Also, I would wash it down with a double cappuccino.

Jen M. said...

Yup. I am home all day today. Working? Cleaning? No.

Eating peanut sauce (and some noodles thrown in for good measure) and reading blogs.

Laaame. Get to work, self!

Kim said...

good choice ;)

Felicia said...

LOL Guess we know what choice you made :)

motherbumper said...

YAAAH FOR POPCORN AND SURFING FOR PORN - b/c that's what you're doing right? Oh yes, I know you too well Madame Ohda'joy ;)

♥♥♥ A- Licious ♥♥♥ said...

Heather B. said...

My choice this evening is between the gym or shoving Indian food into my piehole. Guess which won?!

Joy said...

LOL! The internet always wins with me!

meno said...

What a silly question!

POP POP POP.

QT said...

yeah...i was supposed to go to the gym today too....

Kimberly said...

Save me some!

Deb said...

OMG... I laughed out loud over that!

I often make that decision and choose the healthy path just like you.

Nancy said...

That would have been my choice too, unfortunately for my saggy buns.

jakelliesmom said...

I'm not sure there was an actual choice to be made.

Now how is it that I'm sitting here in gym clothes eating popcorn and commenting on your blog?

Holly said...

Well, that's a no brainer! Popcorn and internet, all the way!

Loralee Choate said...

This totally gives me validation.

Laura said...

Good choice my friend! Love the photo!

Omaha Mama said...

Never a tough one for me, I've got a very neglected gym membership!

mamatulip said...

You made the right decision.

Mrs. Chicky said...

Totally the decision I would have made.

Redneck Mommy said...

I'm all about healthy choices. And since blogging is a necessary lifeline to my sanity I'd have to say you clearly made the right choice.

Jenifer said...

Clearly the right decision was made.

Jennifer said...

Isn't that what they call a rhetorical question?

Fran said...

Oh you definitely made the right choice!!!!!

Fran

a beaverhausen said...

Let me guess....

Ali said...

would have been my choice too!

carrie said...

Well, I know what I'd do! ;)

Circus Kelli said...

An excellent choice.

I had a little time on my hands this evening and I thought - Do I want to watch a TiVo'd Barrett-Jackson Auction, mess around on the internet, or go upstairs and watch a TiVo'd Law and Order...

You'll have to excuse me, L&O awaits. :)

Jordan said...

Oh, my God, this is exactly what i am doing right now. Stuffing my piehole full of that VERY popcorn (oh so much fiber and so little fat!) and messing around on the internet.

Great minds, I tell you.

Mrs. Schmitty said...

Great Choice! One I would have made!

All Things BD said...

I'm pretty sure the Spanish on the side says "shove piehole here".

Shannon said...

Heh...that's my girl.

flutter said...

Orville wins again, that wily bastard!

Claire B. said...

tomarle por aqui, indeed.

SUEB0B said...

A woman after my own heart.

Queen Karana said...

My kids were begging for popcorn tonight. Do you think they read your blog when I am not looking?

Personally, I could use a hot fudge sundae.

Please.

JCK said...

Munching & surfing go hand in hand. But, I never take pictures of the evidence. Ye are much BOLDER me hearty! Sorry, we're into pirates suddenly around here.

Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) said...

LMAO

Jess, from a fatass, I must tell you that popcorn is much too healthy. Pie. Cookies. Chips. Soda.

Also.

Hey.You.Did.It.Work?

canarygirl said...

Well duhhhh! That is an easy choice to make. LOL I'd have made it popcorn *and* chocolate with the internet, though. ;)

Melisa said...

Was it just one bag, or two? You didn't say! How long were you sitting there at the computer anyway?

You know, I hear if you look at workout-related websites, some of that seeps through the monitor and it actually counts...

my, our lives sound similar.

except that time thing. not much of that lately.

JoeInVegas said...

I'm betting you went to the gym like a nice self respecting person would and the picture is an old one.

Erin said...

Good call!

jennifer said...

It makes me feel special that you picked all of us over a stinky old gym. Thanks.

Queeny said...

You are so ... Me!

Kimmylyn said...

Congrats on clearly chosing the better option!! :)

TSM-terrifically superiorily mediocre said...

Ahh you know it's bad when you start to get the telltale yellow knuckles (from the butter sauce, I imagine). Perhaps it's time for an intervention of some sort?

Naaaahhhhhhh!

mauniejames said...

popcorn and wine is good...anything and wine is good

Emily said...

fistfuls of popcorn and idol time on the internet...the devil's playground!

Do tell what you found!

BOSSY said...

Joys - are those Mad Stretched Arm Photo Taking Skillz?

JayJenny said...

Good choice as far as I can tell!

AnotherMomCreation said...

Consider that as a mental health choice. You decompressed. You destressed. You had some time to yourself.

Just as good as any workout!

thordora said...

good call. You're skinny enough anyway. :P

Kyla said...

Meeeee, too. Good choice, you.

Mimi said...

A woman after my own heart, you are :-)

Queen of Shake-Shake said...

See, this is why I love you.

Biddy said...

you actually had to contemplate this? i mean, to me there is only one clear choice here

Tracey said...

good choice, good choice. Besides, popcorn has lots of fiber and that is almost as good as the stair master!

Victoria said...

Perfect! Your photos and wit crack me up. Thanks for the giggle.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Oh yes. And popcorn is a vegetable you know.

Stimey said...

See, I never would have had this dilemma because I just don't go to the gym.

the end of motherhood said...

I've been making the same choice since January 1. I think it is because I have problems with authority. Or it could be that I am just lazy.

Liza's Eyeview said...

excellent choice - LOL!
