ooh george- i've been wondering when someone would bring back
chocolate with aztec ingredients
toma chocolate
paga lo que debes
anyone know the song those lines come from...

anyway tommy--the boy whose computer i use--
got a bunch of lindor truffles trick-or-treating
--hey we live near harvard sq in cambridge mass--
but he won't eat the dark ones
so i've convinced him to leave them out for me
unwrapped of course
maybe that explains how i get so much mileage
from 960 brain cells

As Grace Slick sang, "Feed your head." At least that's what I think she was saying.

Lindor Truffles are amazing.

I usually have my one or two squares of Trader Joe's "Pound Plus" Bittersweet Belgian chocolate after dinner. On certain days, I may have more than two, which is both the advantage and disadvantage of getting the Pound Plus bars.

I wondered when in Ann's exploration of the UK tabloids she would get around to linking the originator of "tits on Page 3." Browsing the home page I was able to score 60/60 on the "True or Falsies" Quiz, and read this stirring true-life saga:

Violet Beauregarde: What's so funny?
Willy Wonka: It must be from all those dog-gone cocoa beans. Hey, by the way, did you guys know that chocolate contains a property that triggers the release of endorphins? Gives one the feeling of being in love.
Mrs. Beauregarde: [flirtily] You don't say?
Willy Wonka: Yes but I put dustless black pepper on it so I don't think you would enjoy it.

Thanks, former law student. I still don't understand breast implants. Saline implants? Horrible! Under the muscle? That would mean that the substance of the front of your breasts would be muscle... and how would you use you chest muscles for their basic muscle purpose if there were implants under them, pushing them forward? That's all screwy! I wouldn't like that feeling.

"eating chocolate, having more sex and steering clear of a low-fat diet, could be the answer to sharpening your mind."

If Edwards incorporates this into his mandatory health insurance, then maybe he's got a shot.

Aragon: "Oh, yes. Those are the charmed substances that some years ago were thought to contain life-preserving properties."
Dr. Melik: "You mean there was no deep fat? No steak or cream pies or... hot fudge?"
Dr. Aragon: "Those were thought to be unhealthy... precisely the opposite of what we now know to be true."
Dr. Melik: "Incredible!

Oompa Loompa: Augustus Gloop / Augustus Gloop / The great big greedy Nincompoop / Augustus Gloop, so big and vile, so greedy foul and infantile / Come on, we cry, the time is ripe to send him shooting up the pipe / But don't, dear children be alarmed, Augustus Gloop will not be harmed, Augustus Gloop will not be harmed / Although of course we must admit, he will be altered quite a bit / Slowly wheels go round and round, and cogs begin to grind and pound / This greedy brute, this louces ear, is loved by people everywhere, for who could hate or bare a grudge against a luscious bit of fudge?
Augustus Gloop: Not gay of course.
Oompa Loompa: Not that there's anything wrong with that. Ompha, Ompha.

One would think that having sex with chocolate would cause a nasty sore or something, but I'm game.
