i have been on and off weight watchers for several years now. i am a big fan of the program and proof that it does work. over the years i have tried a number of weight watcher products. some i liked, some i loved, some were just alright.

this, my friend, is an abomination. if you look closely at the box you will see a cheery box o' 'flakes 'n fiber with oats' - yummy right? and only 1 point per serving?!! i am eating this everyday!!! i purchaed this product, carried it home and placed it in the pantry.

one fine sunday morning i arose from slumber, made my way to the kitchen, started the coffee, retrieved a bowl from the pantry, filled said bowl with 'flakes 'n fiber with oats' (only 1 point!!), carefully pored the milk over it.

at this point i remember thinking 'this doesn't really look like the picture' but i pressed on. i retrieved a spoon from the drawer, slide the spoon into the bowl, lifted a decent sized bite out and began to eat torn up pieces of cardboard. this is, almost, the worst thing i have ever eaten. and i have had haggas.

it is hard to tell from this tiny picture, but there are definitely no flakes in there.



i have had other flavors of their cereal and they are quite good. i have no idea what happened here.

i am wearing navy blue cords, navy blue underwear, a navy blue bra, navy and gray socks and a light blue sweater.

for my snack today i had cherries and very cherry yogurt.

how about don't eat my yogurt?

not all that long ago i made special trip to target to get a different variety of flavors of yogurt. i brought them home, placed them in the refrigerator. around an hour later josh comes to me with an empty container of yogurt, spoon in hand, disgusted scowl on his face and says 'this tastes like a candle.' i said 'how about don't eat my yogurt?'

around june or so last year, my dear boyfriend josh mentioned a movie he would watch when he was younger. he said it was called 'rock-n-roll highschool.' it came on tv and 'it had that guy from that show corey & corey' and i would say 'what show?' and he would say 'you know, that show you would watch, we watched it together one time' and i would say 'i have no idea what show you are talking about' so we went back and forth about some show i would watch that had that guy in it.

i had no idea what he was talking about. so at one point i put 'rock-n-roll highschool' on my netflix list and noted that it was either about the ramones or had the ramones in it.

it came, he watched it and said it wasn't the right one. once again we went round and round about 'that guy from the corey and corey' show.

and then, all at once

about 2 months later

it hit me

he was talking about this reality show on a&e this summer called 'the two coreys' i had watched it over the summer and promptly forgot.

so - we determined it was corey feldman and googled him. turns out the movie was called 'rock-n-roll highschool forever' and that it was the sequel to the ramones movie. furthermore, it was not on dvd.


so you couldn't rent it.


well, this just bugged josh to death and the the following conversation ensued.

josh: why isn't it on dvd?
me: it must not have done very well
josh: but it was really good
me: apparently not
josh: but, it's the sequel. the first one is on dvd
me: yea, but the first one has the ramones in it
josh: yea, but the second on has corey feldman in it
me: (blankly staring)
josh: (blankly staring back)
me (after the appropriate amount of 'are you serious' silence had gone by): there is no comparison

the only thing i can say in his defense is that he was born in 1980 and he just doesn't know.
