V - Vices

Capital Letter V clip artWhen you hear the word VICE you might think about really bad things or things that are really bad for you. Like smoking, drinking or being addicted to sex.

My vices are simple - they are the things I love to binge on (and some of them I can't get here in Ecuador). These are things I have to force myself to do in moderation.

Sure, there's always ice cream and apple pie, but I don't binge eat those (unless one a day when out on motorcycle rides is considered binging). These are the things that I eat until they are gone!

  • Twizzlers Strawberry licorice - yes, I know it's not really licorice but that's what they call it. I have to buy the small bags because once I start....
  • Salty & Crunchy - think good potato chips (we do have some great ones here), tortilla chips (especially with good salsa, picante sauce or pico de gallo - never did understand the difference between them all), and pretzels
  • Cool Ranch Doritos (I know they are a tortilla chip but they deserve their own spot)
  • Cinnamon Teddy Bears - now this is a hard to find candy but when I do, oh my! Chewy and spicy them!

My other vice is reading...when I start, I can't stop until the book is done. And if it's a new series? I have to read them all. My latest vice is JB Lynn's Neurotic Hitwoman series. LOVE!!!

What are YOUR vices?


  1. Mine are junk food (especially soda), and avoiding work.

  2. Sounds like an exciting series! Chocolate for me.

  3. I finally quit the soda habit, hard but did it. Now avoiding work (like writing?)...I'm a champ. LOL!

  4. Even though Ecuador is famous for its chocolate, most of it is exported and the rest is expensive. So we buy a 5# bag of Hershey's dark chocolate kisses to bring back when we're in the states. We have to ration it...1-2 a day. ;)

  5. I tend to binge on certain things no matter how much I try to control myself. I wish I'd binge on more reading, but I often seem to fall asleep after reading for a certain period of time.
