remains of the day

Well, where else would I get the energy to still be up and lively at 11:15 pm?? No, I didn't eat it all today- I've been savoring it for weeks. Bittersweet is the only chocolate I eat: full of antioxidants. Then there are the leftover fortune cookies from the other night's Chinese take-out. We always open the fortunes and throw the cookies away. Doesn't everybody? Of course, most of the time you won't miss anything by throwing the fortunes away, too. But here is one I thought was pretty strange. Written in the passive case(poor writing unless you are being deliberately obscure) this begs the question, "by WHOM? Even better is the one I didn't photograph. It says "There is not greater pleasure than seeing your lived ones prosper." Ain't it the truth?

Rayna,

These sayings are great! You should print them on your silk scarves. BTW, I've been getting lots of compliments on mine...and I like being reminded about the mystery vitamin in iceburg lettuce, and that I should always keep a good disguise handy...

Absolutely - who needs sugar and milk.

Although I prefer just bitter (no sweet) the 85% cocoa content - kinda like injecting it directly into your veins I suppose. Yummy.

And here it is 9am and I'm eating some at my desk at work. It's going to be a long day...

I love the picture of the empty chocolate bar! You're a woman after my own heart, except I only eat milk chocolate. But you go 'head and justify the addiction any way you like, dear.
