Candy binge

I had one of my very rare cravings for candy tonight and since it is my free-day, I went out and got a 1 pound bag of Skittles and promptly consumed half the bag. Now I feel gross! My tongue and cheeks hurt from all of the sugar. I need better self-control…


I’m off to bed. Tomorrow is a programming day, meaning that I will be doing nothing but writing code all day at work. I’m hoping to get a lot done, though, and part of what I am doing needs to be done for a training session that I am running on Thursday.
