I could be dead.

A good piece of chocolate has about 200 calories per serving.
I enjoy two servings a night, and sometimes more on weekends.
Therefore.
I consume 3,500 calories of chocolate in a week.
That equals one pound of weight.

So,

In the last three and a half years,
I have had a chocolate caloric intake of about 180 lbs.
And I only weigh about 140 pounds.
Without chocolate,
I would have wasted away to nothingness about three months ago

I owe my life to chocolate.


*if you are interested, I am putting a photo of me up in the Photo Blawg. It sort of somewhat shows how long my hair was. But really. Its twice as long when it is wet. I hate curls!

Love the pics.

And I learned LOOOOOOOOOOOONG ago, making the calculations only leads to the dark side. Ignorance is bliss.

Is this supposed to make you feel better about your chocolate consumption, or worse? :P

tenacious the calculations dont bother me! I love chocolate too much to let a little thing like numbers get in the way!

Sheila OMG want to hear a horror story? Of course you do! I bought two wonder bars today (do you have them in the US? Best chocolate bar evar!) Anyway i got home and put them on the counter and then later tonight, like five minutes ago, I picked one up to eat its yummy goodness, but it was melted to juice.
I cried.
true story

Oh, honey, I'm sorry. But, chocolate is either for immediate consumption, or to be stored in the fridge.

Did you at least lick the wrapper clean?!

(I've never had / heard of this 'Wonder Bar' thing.)

You know is come cultures melted chocolate could be considered abuse. Especially, when you are already aware of the extreme temperatures in the area!!

Oh, my dear, we are such soul sisters. I love chocolate and could easily eat my body weight in a good milk variety.

But the hair. Dude, we have the same hair. Ever since I cut off the earth mother braid several years ago I keep it very, very short. And when it starts to look like I am related to a sheep I run to my hairdresser. Short and chic...yes....curly and looking like a barnyard animal...no.

You are beautiful, btw. But I have known that for a long time. Without ever having seen your pic.

I want chocolate. They have those letters in Canada? We always got them as gifts when my dad went to his folks in Holland.
