I have spent years without drinking Diet Coke or my favourite, Diet Sprite, because I believed that the aspartame was a big contributor to my debilitating headaches. It probably was.
Diet pop is so good.
I drank Diet Coke all week in Florida (albeit with rum mixed in…) and did not feel like I was doing something wrong. It only made me miss the delicious carbonated sugar-subsituter-y beverage.
The problem is that I’m a Pisces and we have a naturally addictive personality. I’ll probably go way overboard drinking Diet Coke, swear it’s the best thing ever, then completely go off it cold turkey. This happens a lot. It’s probably why I “need” to eat eggs every morning for breakfast. Eggs & Diet Coke. Just kidding. Maybe.
Anyway, I went to Florida over Reading Week and that was a blast but I’m back now so… that sucks.
I finally got to go to Hogwarts and see what all the hoopla was about. I had high expectations of the main ride, The Forbidden Journey, but it was kind of disappointing (and for anyone who has been on it, I legitimately FREAKED out when there were giant spiders in my face).
I met Hedwig.
Then Adam got eaten by a dinosaur…
And I got hit by a train.
The rest of the trip was blissfully spent eating Pinkberry, shopping at the Under Armour outlet (never realized how amazing Under Armour is), and drinking at the bar by the pool.
On the plane ride home, Adam and I passed the time by watching episodes of The Big Bang Theory on my iPad, which was our saving grace. I’m not a crazy-nervous flier, but the plane hit some pretty bad turbulence on the way back. It was the worst turbulence I’ve ever experienced and my heart was racing and my hand was clutched on to Adam so hard I may have left nail marks. It feels good to be on the ground, but not on the ground in Windsor, where the temperature is currently 1 degree. D:
