I spend at least 10 mins a day talking about certain foods that I must stay away from. I stay away from them strictly because they trigger something in me to completely spiral out of control. I’m not saying that I want these foods banished, they are super important to me and during a binge period the following items are crucial.
Please keep in mind these are simply just my trigger foods but if you don’t agree you are obviously a better person than me.
-Donuts (any size)
Everyone knows this and that’s why donut shops always look so sad and empty. The thing about donuts (glazed donuts are prime examples) is that they melt too quickly so you get all confused about what’s really going on. Like, did I just have a donut or cotton candy? This sort of confusion leads you to think that it’s OK to have another and then well, from there it just isn’t pretty anymore.
-Birthday cake (the good kind, none of that pastry stuff, frosting central)
If anyone and I mean anyone has a birthday coming up that I remotely care about or even just know, you can find me asking “what’s the deal with the cake?” It’s so real to me, I won’t get into my traumatizing childhood that involved TARTS for birthday cakes, yep tarts, are you devastated for me yet? Anyway, birthday cake is so special to me and ice cream cake is just on another level. If there is a birthday cake within 2 feet of me at a restaurant I will find a way to get a piece, even it means waiting it out till someones passes up on a plate and leaves it on the table. I know that’s gross or actually i don’t think it’s gross, i think it’s really smart of me. Try having just one tiny square of Baskin Robbins Pralines & cream cake or one of those supermarket birthday cakes, if you succeed you are an alien. END OF STORY!!!
-Guacamole (any kind)
Already you have to deal with the fact that people love saying how avocados are really fattening for you, like you really want to think about how a vegetable/fruit is fattening, that’s already too much for me to handle. But then you have the delicious guacamole and it’s used for almost every occasion, lately people have switched it up with hummus but that’s not often. **Side note remember when ranch dressing was out on the table like it was normal. AS IF Ranch dressing isn’t basically liquid carbs??????? Anyway, back to how Guacamole leads to a food spiral. It just does! For the obvious, chips? I mean I don’t even love chips but with guacamole, it’s over. Suddenly, you find yourself telling the waitress that she has to stop replacing the chip basket because you have to leave and go kill yourself.
this is just obvious. whoever came up with that dumb Pringles chips campaign “you can’t just have one” should really of said that about pizza. Can someone really be that cruel and just have one slice of pizza? Are there really evil people in the world like that? If so, I don’t want to know them. I prefer a world where people have respect for one another and know to order their own individual pizza’s, there is no sharing in pizza.
these are things that I understand can be trigger foods for others but i don’t agree. I’m a super understanding person so I will post them
-cupcakes ( I like them, but like do I love them? NO)
-sandwiches (you will never find me eating a sandwich, it’s a waste to me. But a panini or grilled cheese, that I get.
-Milkshakes ( Totally not interested, actually I am terrified of them.)
-French fries (this should of been listed in my trigger foods but ever since I have been pretending sweet potatoes fries are good for you, i feel ok in this area.)
Feel free to send me your trigger foods and I can agree or disagree with you.
Everywhere you go nowadays some food establishment is trying to scare you by posting their calories.From Baja Fresh (2,200 nachos) to the movie theater package (popcorn,candy, soda 2,100) you can easily want to kill yourself over your favorite snacks. Listen, no one loves taking about food more than me, trust me. So, why not play a game where you guess the calories of your favorite places??? Almost everything is listed online which pleases and truly upsets me. The only issue with this game is it makes you seriously aware and hard to food binge in the future (that could make you happy or really sad.)
Secretly want to be Famous
This is more of a situational game for your own group of friends. Basically, you pretend some big time casting director is in town and needs someone for this specific role, that very special someone. Now, you pick one of your friends and see if they got that “special call” would they take the audition? Personally, I am way to insecure and lazy to ever want to be in front of the camera, but you would be shocked to see who actually says yes. People love the idea that this might be THEIR chance to really make it. It sounds super cruel when I type it out, but I promise you will get a laugh. To be fair most people just say they would just do this ONE audition but I think that’s a total lie. The same way where you cant just eat one Pringle, of course you can, they are f’ing disgusting who wants more than one.
Incase of Emergency
This game makes people a little sensitive about their role in friendships which is silly and something I can’t relate to because I always win this game. Here’s the game. Pick two of your friends and decide in case of an emergency would they be the one you call. you have to give real reasons like. ” i wouldn’t call katherine because she goes to bed at 9pm and that just pisses me off.” or “I would call Nicole because she is a mom so she had to have her phone or her it’s practically her job.” Just so you know the reason I always win is not because I am some superhero (I AM) but because I am always on my phone and always down for an adventure.
Games I tried to make happen
** list your all the character from each season of the Real World (this is hardest game ever)
** Who do you like better list yourself and then one of your friends. (terrible idea)
** how much does that outfit cost? (you will bored two mins playing this, no one cares about that stuff.)
I’m pretty sure I have invented more but enjoy these for now.

I have so much to say about this list. It’s overwhelming. RIcky and I agree on everything and this is really shocking to me. CLEMENTINES as D list??? Those are like known to go fast when they are put out on kitchen counters. NO one is wasting any time peeling a big orange,they are also never ready, and always make you feel guilty when you have to throw one away. ugh, I know I’m going to be asking all my friends their feelings on fruit and then judge them forever for the next week.
I always forget that it isn’t just my small group of friends that celebrate New Years. How cool is the rest of the world? Clearly the kids wearing actual bear hats have it best. Notice LA doesn’t even sort of look fun.
A few years ago I was in Tokyo on Valentine’s day with the husby and while there, I learned that Valentine’s day is just the beginning of a cluster of holidays! A trifecta of confectionary-as-symbol-of-affection-or-ambivalence holidays begins on Valentine’s day, when the girls give…
