I don't know if I ever mentioned it here, but I gave up Krispy Kreme doughnuts and soda for Lent. I broke both of those while in Atlanta. Rashan took me to the World of Coca-Cola [where I tried all 60 varieties all over the world (if you're going to slip, you may as well fall)] and Flip for burgers which had to be finished with a Krispy Kreme (KK) milkshake (studded with bits of Krispy Kreme doughnuts). Ever want a bad influence, call Rah and he'll hook you up. Except he probably won't ever call you back. I don't have that issue of course but you will because you're not me. Lol.
Those two times were the only ones, though, where I've slipped this entire Lenten period. I have definitely had opportunities to cheat by getting a regular old doughnut and I thought about it but abstained. Aren't you proud? Me, too! I'm so fab. BUT Easter is Sunday and me and KK have a date. You're not invited. It's just me and KK. I might even sit in the store and act up. I'm talking about eyes closed in HEAVEN at the taste. Savoring each bite for the first doughnut and just shoving the next 2 in my mouth. I will sit in that store or in front of it until the hot light comes on if I have to. Oh yes, it's that serious. The soda was really just an add on. I don't drink soda like that but when the hot light is on, it's ME at the KK. Only when the hot light is on and not every time.
After 3 years in Pittsburgh with at best sporadic KK (the one near me opened and closed within a year-- SHAME-- and I had to go 45 minutes away from my house, 20 mins from my job for some KK, which at one point prompted the fat tour -- excerpt from 1/23/08: "suddenly I had to have some. YUM!!! But they're so out of the way here that you have to PLAN to go to them. So I said to myself, "Self! It's my Friday; let's do a fat tour!! Go to the fattening places and eat fattening food!" Mmmmmm. First I got my case of Honey Brown. Then I headed to out of the way KK for my half a dozen glazed donuts (polished 2 of those bad boys off in the car), then out of the way SONIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've had neither of these in many many months. They just added Sonic to Pittsburgh in the last few months and I hadn't been yet. Cheeseburger, tater tots and limeade!!!!! YAY!!" I even took pictures...)... I am a fiend. I can admit it.
I introed one of my classmates to the hot KK early in the semester. It was her first ever hot KK. Yes... I know... that is a sin and she should repent BUT she was a convert! (I also got Rah on those hot KKs. Yeah I deal hot KKs like drugs, so what?) Yessssssssssss. Converts are the best. People who ignore the draw of KK or say they're too sweet, *GASP! SHUT THINE MOUTH!!* are the worst. And Dunkin Donuts fans? Not even worth talking about. KK! What up, yo! Me and you on Sunday. *wink*
