Are Pringles a vegetable?

I went downhill skiing today, and it seemed like a totally different mountain compared to Wednesday; probably because of all the new snow; 14 cm in the last 24 hours, 46 cm in the last week. At one point I was looking down a slope that was doing a very good cliff imitation, and thought to myself "I have no memory of skiing down this 3 days ago, and also have no clue how to make it down with all limbs intact". And this was a BLUE run. But I did manage to stumble my way down. On the way home, I stopped at Zellers to pick up a light bulb, and they had a skid full of Pringles right at the entrance. I picked up a tin of the reduced fat "Sour Cream n' Onion" and the reduced fat "BBQ" flavours, thinking that I would keep them in the cupboard to open up the next time Kyle was eating potato chips. I stopped to pick up some new wax for my cross country skis, and as I was leaving the shop, I realized that I was kind of hungry. So I cracked open the BBQ Pringles and grabbed a stack. And then another stack. And then I had to stop for gas...and by the time I made it home, I had just about finished the Pringles. At one point I rationalized that I would get home, pick up my cross country skis and go do a few loops to burn off the calories, but the home tractor beam and the fact that the sun had already set put the kibosh on that. Man, I am an addiction waiting to happen.

Speaking of addictions, here's where I am at with Resolution Sock A:
2 cm into the heel flap. This pattern uses slip stitches rather than short rows.
And here's your daily helping of Kitty cuteness: Somerset figures out how to avoid a cold nose while napping...
...and helps Greedo groom those hard-to-reach places.

Resolution wise, I shovelled the whole access road today (at least 100 feet). We had this weird snow this morning that looked like rain when it was falling; it was pellet like - not hail, because it wasn't ice, but flakes clumped together. It looked like lawn fertilizer pellets. Making some progress on tidying up around here; the challenge will be to actually put away all the laundry I did.

Bet your bippy they're a vegetable! Every so often I succumb to the same temptation, when I know I'll have time enough and milk/juice/water enough to rinse all that sodium out of my pipes afterward.

*Very* glad to have made your "no restraining order" list. Enjoy your jet-setting. Me, I'm going to my first hockey game next week and getting in touch with my Inner Redneck. Can NASCAR be far behind?
