Thursday Thirteen Ed. #69

by Steve, November 30th, 2006

meI’m going to skip the intro today and get right down to Thirteen Reasons I Get Fat Around the Holidays:

1. Halloween candy.

2. Stupid viruses that make me sick = no playing hockey.

3. Thanksgiving dinner.

4. Spending Thanksgiving week with the folks and eating ice cream.

5. It’s stinkin’ cold in Ory-gun. (Even while it was 65 and sunny in I-o-way!) Makes me want to pack on the pounds for hibernation. I want to eat even when I’m not hungry.

6. Travel time = no hockey.

7. Travel time = drinking time.

8. Hockey on TV = snacks.

9. Cookies, cake and candy. If they’re not at home, they’ll be at the office.

10. Short days, long nights, warm bed. Who wants to get up and exercise?

11. Rain. Nine months of it. Not a lot of walks or bike rides until July ’07.

12. Neighborhood progressive party.

13. Ah, to heck with it. I’m playing hockey today, and I’m bucking this trend!

Happy holidays all!
