    Default Some Tips On Christmas Eating!!....

    An old one, but a good one to remember at this time of year! :-)


    HOLIDAY EATING TIPS

    1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who
    puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the
    Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave
    immediately. Go next door, where they're serving rum balls.

    2. Drink as much eggnog as you can.
    And quickly. It's rare. You can't find it any other time of
    year but now. So drink up! Who cares that it has 10,000
    calories in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn
    into an eggnog-alcoholic or something. It's a treat. Enjoy
    it. Have one for me. Have two. It's later than you think.
    It's Christmas!

    3 . If something comes with gravy, use
    it. That's the whole point of gravy. Gravy does not stand
    alone. Pour it on. Make a volcano out of your mashed
    potatoes. Fill it with gravy. Eat the volcano. Repeat.

    4. As for mashed potatoes, always ask
    if they're made with skim milk or whole milk. If it's skim,
    pass. Why bother? It's like buying a sports car with an
    automatic transmission.

    5. Do not have a snack before going to
    a party in an effort to control your eating. The whole point
    of going to a Christmas party is to eat other people's food
    for free. Lots of it. Hello?

    6. Under no circumstances should you
    exercise between now and New Year's. You can do that in
    January when you have nothing else to do. This is the time
    for long naps, which you'll need after circling the buffet
    table while carrying a 10-pound plate of food and that vat
    of eggnog.

    7. If you come across something really
    good at a buffet table, like frosted Christmas cookies in
    the shape and size of Santa, position yourself near them and
    don't budge. Have as many as you can before becoming the
    center of attention. They're like a beautiful pair of shoes.
    If you leave them behind, you're never going to see them
    again.

    8. Same for pies. Apple. Pumpkin.
    Mincemeat. Have a slice of each. Or if you don't like
    mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always have
    three. When else do you get to have more than one dessert?
    Labor Day?

    9. Did someone mention fruitcake?
    Granted, it's loaded with the mandatory celebratory
    calories, but avoid it at all cost.. I mean, have some
    standards.

    10. One final tip: If you don't feel
    terrible when you leave the party or get up from the table,
    you haven't been paying attention. Re-read tips; start over,
    but hurry, January is just around the corner. Remember this
    motto to live by:

    "Life should NOT be a journey to the
    grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive
    and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways,
    chocolate in one hand, Glass of wine in the other, body
    thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO
    what a ride!"

    Have a Great Holiday Season!

    'colour'.

    previous 3 months!!!

    A rule I always live my life by :-)


    All these people that cry "You shoudln't drink that much" or "You
    shouldn' eat that" or "Exercise 6 times a week, 4 hours a day to live a
    healthy and happy life"....... yeah, right!!!

    At the end of the day, all those wonderfully fit healthy eating people are
    going to be laying in hospital dying of..... nothing??

    why are they made of meat?

    My oldest daughter quite often will ring and tell us about these storms
    taking place....... I haven't as yet been told of this hail etc.... I do not
    like the tropical weather pattern...

    I will be in Brisbane from around the middle of January...I will definitely
    be there on 27th January, so I can accompany my 6 year old granddaughter to
    her 1st day of school in Queensland.... She has been in the same school in
    Sydney since she was 3 year old....At 3 she was in 2 day 'Transition' and at
    4 she was in 3 days 'Transition', and has been in Kindergarten class all of
    this year, and turns 6 on 23rd Dec.... She will be at the same school as her
    cousin, Jessica, who is 9 year old..... She will be attending St Aidens
    Anglican Girls School in Corinda.... The boys attend the Brisbane Boys
    College at Toowong...... My oldest daughter moved from Sydney with the
    family 2 years ago.....

    I certainly would like to meet up with you on one of my visits, Peter, and
    as soon as January.... I will let you know when I am there to make
    arrangements..... Of course, you buy the drinks though :-))......

    I can be contacted on to_barry at Yahoo dot com dot au Peter...
