*snicker* I just signed up to vote for the 2008 Blogger’s Choice Awards and my captcha words were "DAINTY BUST" – they SO don’t know me!

I have to share this. My husband had a work mate stay over last night, who is quite technologically competent, so last night they were browsing around his friend’s Facebook, and discussing social networks etc. I rarely talk about such things with hubby, because he’s not all that interested – until it’s relevant to him!
We got up this morning and were pootling around making brekkie and all that, and he says, “Is your friend so-and-so on My Face?”
Appropriate I thought:
‘Twas the week after Christmas, and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
The cookies I’d nibbled, the eggnog I’d taste
At the holiday parties had gone to my waist.
When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).
I’d remember the marvelous meals I’d prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I’d never said, ‘No thank you, please.’
As I dressed myself in my husband’s old shirt
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt
I said to myself, as I only can
‘You can’t spend a winter disguised as a man!’
So away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip
Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
‘Till all the additional ounces have vanished.
I won’t have a cookie – not even a lick.
I’ll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
I won’t have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I’ll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.
I’m hungry, I’m lonesome, and life is a bore
But isn’t that what January is for?
Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!
