That’s right, you read the title of this blog entry correct, I’m now entering the The Detox. No, no, no I’m not addicted to cocaine or about to send naked pictures of myself to Zac Efron (he wishes), I’m doing the healthy kinda detox. Monday morning, myself and about 5 other co-workers will be starting the 12 day Wild Rose Herbal Detox.

The good thing is is that that there are lots of food we can still eat like pretty much any meat and lots of veggies. The bad news? For 12 days we cannot eat/drink dairy, sweets, yeast, wheat and alcohol. The worse news? Within the first paragraph for the instructions of the herbal pills I have to take lies this terrifying sentence: ” If after 3 days the program is too laxative, lower Laxaherb dosage to 1 tablet twice daily.” Ummmmm……that is pretty much the scariest thing I’ve ever read, (aside from Fear Street and Goosebumps). If you know me, and I think you do, you know my biggest fear is bathrooms. I have been known to walk across campuses just to go pee. The other day, I went to four different bathrooms just too pee because there were people in each one of them. And now because of this program it sounds like I’m going to end up writing most of blog from a stall. Should be interesting.

I’ll keep you posted on how this goes. Wish me luck.

Other than that it was a great weekend. I gave some blood on Saturday morning, than went and saw Eastern Promises on Saturday night. I thought it was pretty good, but I also thought the movie took place in Russia. (It apparently took place in London) Then tonight I went and saw The Full Monty:The Musical. It was pretty good, I liked it even better because Sunday nights is Pay What you Can, so I gave $10. Sweet.

Now, I don’t know if it was the quart of blood I donated or the nerves about the laxatives but this morning when I was watching Saturday Night Live (yah Tivo!) I actually found the episode hosted by Bon Jovi quite funny. But as usual Andy Samburg stole the show with one of his digital shorts. I actually think this might not be funny to very many people, but it had me rolling around my couch slapping my knee like an old man.

Here it is for your viewing pleasure. (Look for cameos by Bon Jovi and the Foo Fighters)
