Breaking News


This just in: I no longer enjoy the Diet Black Cherry Vanilla Coke.

Now I'm not trying to steal Steve Irwin's thunder. I mean, crikey, it's dead impressive to take a stingray spine to the heart* and he deserves all the days of mourning he can get in the land down under. And wasn't there something in the news the other day about the Middle East? But we have a travesty on our hands right here in our very own country. What am I supposed to do with an entire 12 pack of Diet Black Cherry Vanilla Coke? Maybe Shaws will take a trade-in for, say, a 12 pack of Diet Coke with Lime? Hell, I'll even downgrade to just plain Diet Coke if they'll let me. Anything to stop the sickly sweet maraschino cherries and vanilla extract from coating the inside of my mouth any longer.

How did it come to this? Sources have indicated that the fatal blow was dealt this summer, when I was distracted by temptations of iced coffee and Diet Pepsi. It's difficult to pinpoint the exact moment the uprising occured; perhaps we should have predicted this outcome, but hindsight is always 20/20. What can we do about it? Well there's nothing we can do.

That's all the news this girl has to report. Back to you Bob.




*Pun intended.

Speaking of important news...did you catch Katie last night on CBS? All I could think of was Veronica Corningstone. I tried not to, but it was hard.

M- I didn't catch The Katie on CBS the other night... I did hear that she's looking for suggestions on how to sign off, though. I think she should just rip off Ryan Seacrest- seriously, how cool would it be if she just ended with: "Couric- OUT"?!

C- Hooray! I'll have my very own built-in Coke drinker.

Oddly enough, I too reached a saturation point this week, only with the BCV Diet Coke knock off: Diet Pepsi Jazz (Black Cherry Vanilla). I've been drinking it like water all summer, but now just the mere thought of it makes me want to chunk chuck.

(I know, I know, I prefer Pepsi products. Tomato/to-mah-to, beautiful and unique snowflakes, etc.)

The diet Pepsi Jazz is intolerable. I almost threw up after one sip. The Diet Dr. Pepper Berries 'N Cream, however... I may have found my true love.
