Thinking. My philosophy on...

Alcohol

Excess kilojoules for not much taste. Plus, why would you poison yourself if you don't have to? I'd rather get my enjoyment from a good piece of cake.

Cake

A solid piece of chocolate mud is worth giving up a lifetime of chips and cheese.

Friendship

Put in the time and the effort and reap the rewards. Honesty and love work wonders in making friends.

Moving

I hate and try to avoid it but I can't deny it has brought immense richness to my life.

Shopping

Try to do this alone.

Housework

Never do this alone. Housework should always be done with an audience.

Hospitality

Having guests is good motivation for cleaning up. It's probably more fun than spring cleaning.
