Avoiding the Snark.

My friend yesterday informed me that I have become more "snarky" as of late. She says she likes this new improved Snarky Me, and I'm not sure I agree.

It's definitely because I'm calorie-deprived. When I'm on a diet, I get...well, for want of a better euphemism...Witchy. Snarky. Nasty. Remember that scene from the 80's movie Big Business, where the high-powered corporate sister (played by Bette Midler) is nasty to her two men assistants as they're walking down the hall and when she gets out of earshot one of them mutters under his breath: "DIETING today, are we?"

Yep. That about sums it up.

I can't help it. My B.S. tolerance turns to zero when I'm not getting my usual bad-for-me-and-everybody food. And I call things as I see 'em.

This is not like me. I am normally a funny, easy-going, non-confrontational person. Hubby is the uptight one. ;-)

And don't get me started on how I am in the car now--as in ZERO patience level as well. Then again, there seems to never be a shortage of idiots who don't use turn signals or cut you off and drive slow. That is always a given.

Never mind Snark. I'll be on blood pressure medication soon. ;-)

Hang in there Sis, the first two weeks or so are hell, but then you just adjust and find how easy it is to stick to it.

That, and no self pity! At least your conscious enough to actually do something about it, which you totally are and it's awesome. Love ya!
