I've been busy, drinking Tab.

I know I have basically been neglecting my dorkette duties this week. There was no Toy Chest Tuesday. I keep meaning to do a new Trashy or Timeless. Night of the Living Roach 4: The Final Battle Part 2 needs to be posted. What is going on with me? I am usually on it.

However I have had a really busy week. I've been drinking Tab. Well Tab is not exactly why I have been slacking on my dorkette musings. However Tab did help me fit into a fun pink dress last weekend, and worked me into a rather lovely outfit for my mom's first signing party launching her new cook book! It was last night and let me tell you all, we worked our tushes off.

She was signing the books while I was doing the cashier duties and bagging the books up. Let me start off by saying I was in the cutest pair of skinny jeans and this amazing drapey yet slimming '70s inspired top. Oh, and 6 inch heels. I can't understand for the life of me why I put myself through such torturous lengths to look great. I literally could not feel my feet this morning.

Anyways the book signing was fabulous. Thankfully Auntie M and my other cousins arrived to help us, because it got out of control. So many people came out to support my mom and I was so proud of her. She has worked so hard to get this cook book out. It was just an amazing night! I also need to practice more on my Brain Age for the DS, because I totally got how to run the credit card machine thing, but counting out change from cash was a struggle. I mean I know how to spend money, not count it. Let's be real. I grew up in the age of calculators. However I will work on that, I just need to start playing Brain Age again and I'll be fine and ready to dole out change to anyone! (For the record when I worked retail the registers helped with change too! I mean come on! My brain age is old and moldy people.)

So let's talk Tab. Book signings are awesome and all, but Tab has truly become my new drink of choice. For those who don't know, Tab is a diet drink that basically tastes like Coke with Sweet 'n' Low. It sounds disgusting, but I love it. And it comes in a pink can!

I remember when I was 4 or 5 and I just loved the pink Tab cans. I begged my mom to buy some in the store and she was like, "I know you like pink, but you are too young for a diet soda." She also told me I'd hate it. I refused to believe her lies and did my best spoiled sad face to prove my point. My mom caved and bought some. I feel sorry for my parents, because I was really this crazed diva child. I don't know how they survived raising me. Really, I don't.

Having gotten my way, we went home and I patiently waited for the Tab to chill. I drank it wanting to like it. Instead I felt sick. I hated it and my mom ended up proving a very important point. I was to young for diet drinks, even the ones that came in a pink can.

Back to the present, I recently read a small article about Tab. I found myself walking down memory lane and curious to buy some again. After all I am cautiously approaching 30 and I want to look amazing when I reach a new decade of personal life. Maybe a diet drink will be better for me than my tasty Dr. Pepper. Truth be told I also wanted to buy the pink can again and just see if my taste buds had changed.

I can honestly say, I love Tab! I am a Tab-aholic, or whatever Tab fans call each other. I wonder if there is a Tab fan club? I mean surely there is. The soda is hard to find in stores, so there must be some hardcore group of people that insist on it being at certain places. I think I will do some investigating.

Now I'm not drinking a six pack a day. I usually drink one soda a day, unless I'm having one of those rough days and I might drink two. But with Tab, I don't feel so bad having a soda. There are no calories. Just saccharin. I'm assuming that stuff is safe. Are we still supposed to be believing in that cancer myth? I hope not.

Anyways, that is all for today. Tab is good. I am also proud of my mom. I think if we could bottle up her energy and ability to make her dreams come true, we would all be in a better place. Speaking of better places, Pine Valley is really the place to be. This week has been some of the best soap tv ever. Tomorrow is going to be a rough day.

Also, Night of the Living Roach 4: The Final Battle Part 2 is going to be awesome! We will find out what happens to Mainframe and Glimmer. And Miss M finds herself in a fight for her life against a vile Roach.


  1. My dear child, are you really drinking a six pack a day of TAB?
    If so I really worry about you?
    Great posting you had me cracking up!

    Have a great weekend. Hold onto All My Children Forever! I love you! From the Eveready Mom!

  2. LOL No, I am not drinking a six pack of Tab a day. I can promise you!
