Forgive me Father for I have sinned. I have fallen victim to the evil BBQ Festival. I have been gluttonous.

Day 1-BBQ sandwich, chips, slaw, baked beans, cookie (Just for lunch-Don't ask about dinner. I'm too ashamed). Day 2-BBQ sandwich, 1/4 rack of ribs, iced tea, cheesecake on a stick, several bites of Dippin' dots (just for lunch-Again, don't ask about dinner).

I am guilty of the sin of lust, lusting after my friend's big fat plate of ribbon fries. Lusting after those BBQed shrimp, the fudge brownie sundae, the fried ice cream and the cajun corn. Oh, and the fried pies.

I am guilty of envy, envious of my friend's polish dog and BBQed chicken. Envious of another friend's fried Oreo and that foot long corndog.

Forgive me Father. What shall I do? What's that? Six Hail Mary's and three miles of running at the United Way 5k tomorrow? Sigh. Okay, and while I'm at it, I'm just going to tack on another three miles 'cause we still have one more day of this doggone festival. Just in case.

here in japan, they just don't understand the true philosophy behind a real BBQ....they get close,

Cheesecake on a stick?

Now THAT wasn't at our state fair where EVERYTHING is on a stick (at least I don't think it was...).

I so want cheesecake now.

Good luck on your run!!

Wait a minute. I didn't know that you lived where I live. Well, actually I could have smelled the BBQ smell from where I work. I live south of Melber. Ever heard of it?

Warning! Take heed before the fat gets you! LOL! I have put on 8kilos from being naughty! I don't think any amount of Hail Marys will fix it!

I think some serious exercise and salad eating is in my near future!
