I am committed ladies and gents… and not in a lock her up and throw away the key kind of way…
In a taking care of myself kind of way.
As I may have mentioned before, I and some other fun internet peeps, have given up chocolate for the month of January. We’re doing well so far, but with Holly as our fearless leader how could we not?
We started as a small contingent of choconots but we have gained faithful members and serious detractors.
The tension in the internet air between the “choconots” and the “frenemies” is getting thick. It is so dense it’s cloying… Why all the hate people? Can’t we all just get along?
Can we let bygones by bygones. Can we ignore the name calling, sexual dispersions and cruel photoshopping and just be friends?
Avery, in, I’m sure, a misguided attempt at supporting us has suggested that we give up chocolate for the month of February as well.
I tell you, it’s caused quite a stir. A buzz, if you will, among the choconots. There’s been discussion, suggestion, digestion (not of the chocolate, of the idea of a an additional 29 days).
I think it wouldn’t hurt any of us to give it up again. I’d be willing to do so, a few others have weighed in on the subject and they seem willing to do it too…
But I have to ask my self, friends, who gains more? Do we, the choconots, gain more by further abstinence or do Avery and the frenemies gain more in the fun of taunts and sick amusement at our attempt to better ourselves.
So the idea that I’ve come up with, with help from my lovely cousin and choconot comrade Mielikki is that we try to DO something instead of just giving up something.
Friend’s, Choconots, Frenemies lend me your ears (er… eyes since you’re reading this)… What would you say to committing to exercise at least 3 times a week for the month of February?
And as a sign on bonus to the Frenemies: If three or more of the current frenemies will agree to join me in our month of exercise then I will go February without even a lick of chocolate and encourage the other choconots to do the same.
