The Last Two Days of 2006

You can look at this as a late entry for December 30th or a premature blog for December 31st. Actually, I am just trying to impress my manager as to how HARD and how LATE I am working in his absence. I trust he will be suitably impressed. This will be my last regular blog, at least for 2006.

A reminder that our hours tomorrow for Sunday, December 31st:

NOON to 4 PM.

As you can surmise, all the Sugarless deLite Staffers have big part hardy plans to ring in 2007. To allow everyone the chance to recuperate and get their bearings, we will be

closed January 1, 2007.

A word of caution to our customers. We want everyone to have a great time New Years Eve and New Years Day. PLEASE heed the following:

If your drink- DON'T DRIVE
If you drive - DON"T DRINK

From the staff of Sugarless deLite: we wish everyone a healthy, happy, prosperous, and peaceful 2007.

Gunsmoke Turns 80

Yes indeed, my father nicknamed "Gunsmoke" by all of the Sugarless deLite staff is 80 years old today. His nickname comes from the fact that he was a deputy with the sheriff's department for 25 years followed by another 15 years with the Dallas Police Department until retired. He also served in WWII in the U.S. Navy as a gunner on a destroyer. Happy Birthday Dad. FYI, he is also my Aunt Syd's nephew.

I guess it is time to start thinking about those New Year's resolutions. I think I will pass. I consider getting up every morning, coming to work, and getting home without being run over by other drivers a major accomplishment most days.

Many of our staff have acquired Wiis for Christmas and have vowed to take advantage of their newest purchases. There is talk that they are trying to develop a software program that tests the ability to pull the perfect frozen yogurt sample. I personally, would rather have a dog which I already have. However, I would not mind having a software program that would take him for a walk and cleaning up afterwards.

As 2006 draws to a close, Sugarless deLite would like to thank all of our customers who support us on a daily, weekly, weekly, and annual basis. We pledge to continue to bring you the best products and do our best to look for the newest lines and products as they become available.

Happy Birthday Aunt Syd

Today in 1904, the first weather reports were published. Keeping with the atmosphere and space, Thomas Henderson-astronomer was born in 1795.

It is also my Aunt Syd's birthday today and she is 97. She acts like she is 25, has a wit sharper than a swiss army knife and the heart the size of Alaska. Happy Birthday to my favorite Aunt in the universe.

On a more religious note, today is Innocent's Day commemorating the massacre of children in Bethlehem by King Herod.

On to a brighter outlook,the sun is struggling to show its face and I am optimistic with its success. If you are feeling a bit down after the Christmas cheer, think about adopting a furry face at your local animal shelter. Pets are always glad to see you when you come home and they truly are humankind's best friends. There are two caveats to this suggestion. 1] only get a pet if you are willing to treat them as well as they treat you, and 2] in the famous words of Bob Barker- don't forget to spay or neuter your pets. I admit I am lover of animals.

Be sure to check out the Sugarless deLite after Christmas sale rack if you are out and about in the Dallas area.

Another Day in Paradise

Wednesday, December 27, 2006

Good Morning from Sugarless deLite.

As you can probably tell, the usual blogger is on vacation enjoying a good chili dog at "The Varsity" in Atlanta. Atlanta is famous for several things 1] having several streets named Peachtree- which can drive a sane person nuts; 2] Coca Cola- it's the the real thing; 3] The Atlanta Braves - the sacred love of one of us owners (the other one is fond of the NY Mets), and 4] the Varsity.

FYI, The Varsity is an historical institution and the largest drive-in restaurant in the country.It is famous for their chili dogs, frosted oranges, great onion rings and fries. Not exactly low cal, low fat, or sugar free fare. It is also where Nipsy Russell (The Match Game and other game shows of the 70s) worked. Georgia is quite beautiful with its pine trees, rich civil war history even if they did lose, and beautiful architecture. I have a special fondness for Georgia that goes beyond it being my spouse's home state.So much for Georgia.

Another crisp and cold day here in Texas. The sun is shining and the Sugarless deLite sale rack has some good deals waiting for you. Our shelves are re-stocked and ready for your perusal and purchase.

Special Shopping Day

Three busy days are ahead of us here at the store. I hope that you have most of your shopping done or if you don't that you remember to have fun while doing it. There are a lot of people who like to make us one of their last stops. To accommodate them, we have baked extra cake loaves and pies and have plenty of chocolate assortments available. Don't forget to check out the holiday hours on the door when you come in to the store. I'll post these for you on Sunday.

Today we have a free small yogurt for all Trinity Christian Academy students.

Fun Fact Friday: Reindeer eat moss to keep warm. Moss is hard to digest and has little nutritional value, but strangely enough, reindeer fill up on it because it contains a special chemical that helps keep their body fluids warm. When the reindeer make their yearly journey across the icy Arctic region-or to deliver presents to good girls and boys-the chemical keeps them from freezing, much as antifreeze keeps a car from freezing up in the winter. (This fact brought to you by Fact or Crap daily calendar.)

Fun Is on the Way

There is not much time left. There is only four more days until left until vacation...I mean Christmas. This is the time of year that I take my big vacation. I didn't really take time off this year so I'm heading out for an extended vacation this year spending time with my family in Atlanta, Georgia and Lumberton, North Carolina.

I'll admit that North Carolina is one of the favorite states. The coolest thing about it is that you can start driving at one end of it in the Appalachian Mountains and 4 1/2 hours later end up on the other side approaching the east coast beach. All the way through the drive, you can see pine trees all the way. It's a beautiful state. I look forward to sharing it this holiday season.

Today is Cone Day! All cones are $1.85 all day long (regularly $2.72).

The bagels have arrived and we have all varieties (Blueberry, Sweet Wheat, Cinnamon, White, Onion and Perfect 10) as well as the English Muffins and the Pita bread. Next week, we will not receive our shipment until Friday the 29th because of the Christmas holiday.

This Christmas seems like it will provide either a long weekend or a long vacation for our readers according to last week's poll results. This week is a simple yes or no: I Can't Wait Until Christmas! (Snappoll is not working so just leave your answer in the comments section.)

My answer is that I can see it through. But, it is made a little easier by the fact that this year I have three days of Christmas (23rd-25th). The 23rd is with my girlfriend, the 24th with her family and the 25th with my family after a brief drive to Atlanta. I will be ready for the post Christmas R&R.

5 To Go

Earlier this month I set up a to-do list. I've had an amazing amount of success on accomplishing the tasks that I set for myself. There are really only a few left to go. (Granted, some of them are the big ones.) It's been really helpful to have the list to go from along with the deadlines. Not everything has been done right on time, but it has been close. This has been so successful that I may have to carry this over to the New Year.

Speaking of things to do, there are only a few days left to accomplish your Christmas shopping. The rain seems to have stopped for today so you might be able to get some errands run without getting wet. If you’re shopping today, then you are still probably early enough to have a decent selection. Good Luck!

It's Like GNR says...

One of the hardest things during the Christmas season for me is having to wait to give my presents out (yes, receive as well). I shop early and usually have had most of my presents for over a month or two (yes, sometimes even a year). Every once in a while, I have a really special present that I desperately want to give because I know how much it will mean to the one who receives it. I actively have to tell myself to be patient and this can be hard at times because I am so excited. Nevertheless, I know that the present always mean more when given on that special day. Therefore, I will patiently wait. :)

Seven Day Itch

This was a great weekend all things considered. It was nice to enjoy a few White Elephant parties and I was able to hand out a few true Christmas presents. My girlfriend and I went to the Bass Performance Hall on Saturday evening to see the Texas Ballet performance of the Nutcracker. It was the first time that I had been to Bass and it is a wonderful hall. We both had a lot of fun getting dressed up and going out on the town.

After three months of searching, we also found and joined our new church home at Parkway Hills. This was like the cherry on the top for the weekend. It's nice knowing where your home is.

Second Helping

Round two of the White Elephant parties was not nearly as successful as round one for me in regards to the gift that I received. However, it was more than rewarding for the gift that was given. I put a little bit of thought into gifts. I love to give them. My general rule for a White Elephant gift is to buy one with someone in particular in mind and leave it to chance or their own craftiness to see if they can end up with it. The other option is to give a gift that everyone will enjoy and fight over.

I was glad to see that the chosen recipient ended up with her gift. She also received a legacy re-gift and the responsibility that comes along with it. Assuming that she does her job well, the legacy re-gift will live to see its 10th year at the next Vortex White Elephant party. Thanks to Dave and Holly for hosting.

The Elephant in the Room

I went to a White Elephant party last night with my girlfriend. She was the second picker and got the worst gift, which may be re-gifted at tonight's White Elephant party. Here are a few hints to anyone who may have one of these parties to go to:

1. If you like something that is already opened, always steal it.
2. Keep careful tabs on possessions so that you can steal an item to lock it down.
3. Be very weary of picking out anything from the pile.
4. When picking things out from the pile, pick out the middle of the road packaging. (Too cute or too ugly can be bad things.)
5. Remember to have fun and never bring a box of trash!

Friday Fun Fact: Wilma Slaghoopal was a prime-time TV star from 1960 to 1966. Slaghoopal is Wilma Flintstone's maiden name. The Flintsones, a tip of the Stone Age hat to The Honeymooners, was the first animated television series to run in prime time. Wilma's friend Betty Rubble had a somewhat less unusual maiden name: McBriker.

A 2 B

As I was watching Sports Center last night after dinner, I heard that Lamar Hunt died from complications related to prostate cancer. For those of you not familiar with Mr. Hunt, he is one of the legends of American sports. He was one of the founders of the AFL and one of the main reasons that the NFL and AFL merged. He owned the Kansas City Chiefs. He was also one of the founders of the MLS and owner of both the FC Dallas team and the Columbus Crew. As if that wasn't enough, he was a pioneer in the world of tennis as a co-founder of the World Tennis Circuit.

Among his many honors that he received in his life, Mr. Hunt was named Man of the Year by the Kappa Sigma Fraternity in 1973. He is a brother from the Epsilon-Gamma of Louisiana Tech University. So I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Brother Hunt for all he has done for the world of sport and for all of his humanitarian contributions over the years. You will be missed.

Not to say that it was any fun, but the doctor appointment went well. I got a really cool red crayon band-aid. My girlfriend was very kind and cooked dinner for me which was wonderful because I had to fast throughout the day for the physical. I think that meatloaf might just be a perfect breakfast food for 6:30 at night.

Over the last year, I've come to realize more and more that when you face up to your fears, i.e. doctors, and follow through with the course of action, you often feel pretty good about the results. It's a lot like exercising in that regard. It is rarely ever fun, but the results are nice to have.

Let's Get Physical

There are very few things that I really don't like to do. On that list, I would definitely place going to the doctor, any type of doctor, very high. Today I am going to get my fist physical in 12 years. (Some might say that I am over due.) I know that everything is fine, but the male in me just recoils at the thought of going. The more I talk to other men, the more I know that this is a guy thing to some degree. Men just don't like doctors.

Last night my girlfriend and I along with her roommate and her boyfriend went to the night of 1,000 voices concert at Prestonwood. The music was great. Toward the end of the performance, the children's choir and the Jr. High and High School choirs joined the 800 plus adults on stage and sang the final 3 songs with them. It was pretty amazing to hear. Excellent job to all of those who sang and to the orchestra. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

After the concert we went to IHOP for dinner. Here is a gift idea for anyone who is still doing some late shopping and has a college aged kid or 20 something in the household: Buy an Entertainment Passbook. I have started buying one each year. Even after I let the guys at work pilfer through the book for the fast food coupons, there are so many excellent offer that save a lot of money. Armed with the buy one, get one free for each couple, our total came to 20 dollars for the for of us. :)

2/3 Impulse

I got home from work last night tired and hungry around 7 o'clock. I was going to dinner at 8:45 PM so I had a little bit of time. I haven't been working out over the last two weeks because of a sore back, general tiredness, busy schedule, late nights and a myriad of other excuses. It dawned on me last night as I was preparing to sit down in the recliner once again and talk myself out of another workout that the extreme since of tiredness was a reason to work out rather than an excuse to avoid it.

Once I had on the workout clothes (note to self: get sweat pants), I felt committed and it was easier to get motivated. Because of the time constraints, I only went through 2 of the 3 sets and ran a short 3/4 mile. However, it sure did feel good to get back into some type of routine. As I was walking home, I realized how much the work out had become important to me. It gives me a chance to burn off extra energy and have some time to think through things. The holiday times are hard to keep in any routine, but I think this was a step back to the right direction. After all, excuses were the only thing keeping me out of one.

Friday Fun Fact: Composer Arnold Schonberg changed the title of one of his compositions because it had 13 letters in the title. Arnold Schonberg, one of the first composers to embrace atonal modern music, suffered from triskaidekaphobia-the morbid fear of the number 13. When he realized a work of his titled Moses and Aaron contained 13 letters, he removed one of the a's from "Aaron." Nevertheless, Schonberg died 13 minutes before midnight on Friday the 13th, July 1951. (This fact brought to you by Fact or Crap daily calendar.)

:) / :(

I just found out this morning that I have sold my Limited Edition Halo Xbox that I listed on Half.com. While I am very happy to have this item sold, it will be a little sad to pack it up and ship it across the nation. After all, I have had an Xbox since 2002 and have spent hours playing the various games that I own. Additionally, the system has doubled as my juke box over that time period and the new owner is about to inherent almost every Radiohead song ever made a long with about 20 other artists.

Of course, it was time to move on to the next stage. While I don't think that I will ever grow out of playing games, I have grown out of the doing little but playing games stage. Life has too much to offer to remain tethered to a box and a TV. (To be fair, I still have three other consoles.) The best part of selling the Xbox is that it solves the chicken or the egg dilemma. Now, I can proceed with listing all of the Xbox games that have.

Gifts Galore

Did you ever get a present all wrapped up for you to open that you just knew was the one that you had been asking for over the last few months only to open it and find out that it was a cleverly disguised box of T-shirts? This is what happened today at the store when I opened the box from Chocolite. I was so excited to get this long awaited shipment since we have been waiting over 4 months. Alas, my hopes were dashed as soon as the box was opened to reveal one full case of the only flavor that we actually have in stock instead of the Crispy Caramel that we have been waiting on and were promised. Nevertheless, I still think that we may get this product back in before Christmas. We'll let you know.

MS grammar check does not identify the use of Gooder in the title of the quiz as improper grammar.


So the grammar might be alright but the spelling apparently (see yesterday's comment) still needs some work. To each may their own gift be given. Speaking of gifts, the funny thing about getting a box of T-shirts for Christmas or my birthday is that now I actually ask for them.

Last night I cooked breakfast for dinner for my girlfriend and I, and watched Pride and Prejudice (the newest version). It was the first time that I have ever seen any version of this film all the way through. It was a very good story and a well acted film. Most people might not like cold weather, but it provides a great opportunity to stay inside, light a fire and curl up to watch a movie.

Sound and Flurry

It seems that yesterday was a bit of a bust after all. All that talk about a huge winter storm amounted to not much more that a little sleet and some wonderful snow. It was fun getting to dance outside for a few minutes as the big snowflakes come down in the 4 o'clock hour. I hope that everyone got to enjoy the slightly white landscape on the drive home as it will all be gone in the next few hours.

My girlfriend, who is a saint, was kind enough to brave the cold with me, go to dinner and run a few errands. We ate at Go Fish in Addison which is an excellent restaurant for seafood. It seems that everyone was looking for a reason to go home early last night. (Yes, Sugarless deLite closed at 7.) We heard the good people at Barnes & Noble say that they were shutting down at 9 o'clock. It just seemed like a day that people wanted to either stay in or get home quickly.

There are 24 days left until Christmas!

Friday Fun Fact: By the time tea was introduced in Europe, it had already been drunk in China for nearly 4,600 years. Tea was first brewed in China around 2700 B.C., when the emperor Shen Nung, a scientist and patron of the arts, ordered all drinking water boiled as a hygienic precaution. When some dried brown leaves fell into his boiling water, the curious emperor drank the infusion as an experiment and found it refreshing.
