So I was playing a game on Facebook...

... called Baking Life. I think I need to confess right now, I am not a baker. I don't particularly like to bake but I have been known in the past to definitely enjoy some baked goods!
Ok, getting back to the story... I began playing this game on FB called Baking Life where you have to build this cute little bakery and then stock it full of baked goods, sell them to make a profit to be able to buy more things to make your bakery cuter, hipper.. etc and get these little crazy hype and style points. Really, thinking about it know, this played on my gluttony and vanity traits so well. I love to eat, serve and be as fashionable as possible. UGH,  way too clever! Well anyways, I noticed that I have been craving something sweet everyday for the past 7 days.. I've been playing for 8. I wanted a little chocolate this day, then I wanted a little ice cream that day and so on. I didn't really put 2 and 2 together until I found myself nibbling on a plain buttermilk donut at a meeting yesterday (OMG... I was in back to back to back meetings yesterday!!) everyone at the meeting was remarking on how they never see me eat donuts anymore.... What was I doing??! Had I been subliminally brainwashed to want sweets or had I did this to myself??? I think a little of both. Now anyone on the outside, looking in could see the writing on the wall... what was I doing playing a game called 'Baking Life'... didn't I realize that it would lead me down a road of regret? (Ken laughed when I finally figured it out and confessed... he too thought it was strange)
Well, needless to say, I have since quit my little online 'Baking Life' addiction and am seeking entertainment elsewhere... reading The China Study, watching a movie or just going for a walk. Funny how the brain works.. all you have to do is play in an area of taboo and you can find yourself right in the middle of the murky waters of it.
