On why I shouldn't drink Coca Cola....

When I finished my A2 Levels (a shocking 4 and a half years ago now) I joined Weight Watchers with my mum in an effort to shift some of my rhinocerous sized body mass.

I was dedicated and determined and I lost 3 and a half stones (around 22 Kg I think) and reached my gold weight. In order to do this, I had to make certain sacrifices....like Coca Cola - the full fat stuff.

Diet Coke was completely allowed, as it has 0 points in it, and could therefore be consumed as much as was desired.

Obviously I complied and quit my fat coke for thin coke and lost the weight.

Having been beaten into submission this way and for so long, I found drinking fat coke unpleasant as it made my teeth feel funny.

It would appear that having quit fat coke for 4 years and then accidentally getting a pint last night had some unusual side effects.

I had the hugest caffeine and sugar rush combined, and proceeded to dance like a woman possessed for the next 30 minutes. My bar supervisor who was out with me was rather bemused as I was bouncing all over the place in a slightly odd manner, and decided to see how far it would go if he got me a second fat coke. Cue a very giddy, bouncy Merys who managed to make everyone think she was drunk out of her skull (except today I don't have the hangover . . . just toothache). I was so hyped up I didn't even have an alcoholic drink all night.

Moral of this story - never ever give me full fat Coca Cola unless you want me to annoy you for the next 30 minutes.

Have you heard of Red Bull. You could run a marathon.

Didn't they make Smarties take all the e-numbers out recently and use only natural colours?
It made hyping kids up before they went home (after kids' parties) a lot less fun

The last smarties ad I saw was proudly proclaiming that there were no E numbers in the red smarties, or the yellow ones or the brown ones and so on and so forth.

BUT - they didn't mention the blue ones...

That's because they don't have blue ones any longer, they can't colour them without e numbers!
A sad loss indeed.
