So this would be what insulin shock feels like ...
There's a reason I've never wanted to eat Crispy Creme (or whatever abomination of Ks and Cs they spell it with) doughnuts. The same reason I've never wanted to eat poutine. Besides the fact that poutine looks gross.
I'm afraid that I will like it.

So today Jamie (may she burn in hell) brought in a humungous box of Crispy Creme timbits (although I guess at CC, they don't call them timbits). I've never been a huge doughnut fan, but hey, I was at work, and they're doughnuts. Each one of these little babies had about 1/4 inch thick coating of deep-fried butter and sugar surrounding it. I ate about 90 of them.

I figure I've consumed about a two year supply of saturated fats today. And I almost fell asleep driving home despite the maniac assholes on the road.

So if I die of a massive coronary in my sleep tonight, promise me that if Jamie shows up at my wake, you'll kick her ass. And don't let her bring doughnuts.

I've never had those donuts, I'd be afraid.

But poutine...oh em gee...I miss a good Burger King poutine, that is soooooooooo good. A heart attack for $3.99, but on the odd (for me, extremely rare) occassion, it's worth the clogged arteries.

Bowser and Blue have a song about "The Night They Invented Poutine". I have cut down on poutine quite a bit. In two years I lost 30lb, that may have had something to do with it.Giving up soft drinks too. KrispyKreme was hot in Quebec until you could find them everywhere then the love affair with them ended. Probably had to do with eating too many tends to end love affairs...

Be very very afraid, Alana. So they do spell it with two Ks? The bastards! I hate purposefully mispelled names that serve no purpose (but that's a rant for another day).
Poutine still scares me though...

I think I'm never even going to try poutine, Barbara W. Why even go there? I was addicted to those little Ritz crackers with the fake cheese wedged in between them for one whole summer and had to let those go in a hurry.

I am well aware of the evils of Krispy Kreme, but poutine? Sounds like something I'm not into, being hetero and all...

I had one of those Krispy Koronaries a couple of years ago, I didn't get the fascination. It's sweet fried bread, I must be missing an allele because my DNA isn't registering any kind of longing. :(

Alana said...

Oh COME ON!! Fries, cheese and gravy! It's the perfect, stroke-causing delicious combination! And I'm TOTALLY hetero!

I admit, I haven't had one probably since last June, but man...BK poutine's a scary kind of good.

I passed out too after I came back home from work: thanks to those doughnuts! :) Thankfully, I had a session with my trainer tonight. Makes me feel less guilty! He he he

Maybe that layer of sugar, fat and dough that covered my brain today was the reason why none of the things I was trying to do worked today! ;)

kelly said...

poutine....simply put its orgasmic...i never had krispy kream....they were that good that you ate 90...wow?...i might have to try one

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Poutine is one of those sick inventions which you could previously only get in Quebec, Michelle, which are now creeping insidiously across the rest of the country. Of course, you being hetero, it would be dead to you anyway.
I'm not sure there's all that much bread in a CC or KK or CK or KC or however the hell they spell it, just deep-fried fat and sugar. How do they do it?

See, Alana, there're two factors that would through me off regarding poutine. Cheese and gravy together is just wrong. Plus I'm a fries dipper. I don't like putting gravy or ketchup directly on my fries because I can't tolerate them soggy. So poutine just wouldn't work for me. (Thank Christ - another evil averted)

I'm pretty sure you're right, Jas. I think our sugar orgy killed off a few neurons. I did bare minimum exercise last night (and no cardio, because I didn't want to stress my heart any further).

Kelly, DON'T try one. And the fact that I ate 90 of them wasn't really a reflection on their taste, more on my lack of it. They were there, I'm a pig, end of story.

Alana said...

Hey Barbara, I blogged something for you...

(Cheese + Gravy = Soulmates) :P

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I'll be right over, Alana!

Will said...

It's quite alright. They are just too hard to resist. Besides, I am not one to turn down free food.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

It's odd, isn't it, Will? Something you may never in a million years considering buying for yourself, yet, if it's put in front of you, you gotta eat it. (and I mean YOU as in all of us, I'm not picking on you).

It must be the pack-dog mentality surfacing in us.

Barb B:
Don't worry...if you have a massive coronary and that evil Jamie girl shows herself at your wake, I will SOOOO kick her ass!

BWH999 said...

That's great since my office just brought Krispy Kreme's in for the first time. Yummy.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I always knew you were flexible, Jamie, but that's ridiculous! I appreciate it though.

Oh nose, bwh999, run away! Save yourself!

Maureen said...

I don't understand the Krispy Kreme thing, but I'm not a huge donut fan either....poutine is another story. Dammit, now I want some.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Maureen, you take your life into your hands when you enter this site. Who knows what evil temptations lurk?

Maureen said...

Evil temptations? EXACTLY what I'm looking for tonight, guess I'm in the right place ;)

Barbara Bruederlin said...

hahaha I'll see if I can scare up some evil tempters for you, Maureen.

No, sorry, I think they've all gone to the bar.

Stephanie said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
oh barbara
you kill me

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Well Stephanie, I guess it's better than being killed by poutine or doughnuts. Wait a minute, no it's not!
