Words of the day:

word: ersatz \AIR-sahts\ adjective
definition: being a usually artificial and inferior substitute or imitation
example: After ordering her coffee, Tabs saw that there was no sugar available at the counter, so she had to settle for an ersatz alternative.

word: undulant \UN-juh-lunt; UN-dyuh-\, adjective:
definition: Resembling waves in form, motion, or occurrence.
example: Scotland's undulant landscape is serene in pretty much every direction you look...which is why I love it so.
Today is not national anything but don't forget that March is National Frozen Food Month so get to nukin' your fave boxed meal and celebrate the last few days of this great month!

OH! I did just find out that Saturday, March 31st, is Lemons and Oranges Day. Hope you fill your weekend with lots of citrusy goodness (and get lots of vitamin C in the process!)!!

Thought this was funny and that you might get a chuckle...

16 Things That It Took Me Over 50 Years to Learn
- By Dave Barry

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

2. If you had to identify, in a single word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

3. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

5. You should not confuse your career with your life.

6. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. (Yes! This one is for you Beks.)

7. Never lick a steak knife. (Done it, haven't gotten hurt yet) (Another side note: my friend - you know who you are - once stole a steak knife from a restaurant before. Gotta love those take-home boxes).

8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

9. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time. (OH MY GOODNESS!!! SO TRUE!!! I absoletly hate daylights saving time and am not sure why we even deal with it, especially when most everyone else - even a state or two in our own country - don't)

10. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment. (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! AGAIN, SO TRUE!)

11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age 11. (Um, negative on this one. I vote this one as my least favorite! There is no age limit on birthday celebrations!)

12. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe we are above average drivers.

13. A person who is nice to you but rude to the waiter is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.) (If you know me at you'll understand when I say that this is my favorite on this list)

14. Your friends love you anyway.

15. Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

16: Final thought for the day: Men are like fine wine. They start out as grapes, and it's up to the women to stomp the snot out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.

Their baaaack....

It's that time of year again, folks. Time for my favorite M&M's to come out of hiding and show their lovely pastelness to the world. And I don't care what you say, Easter M&M's taste different. There will be no arguign with me because I will concede on this one. I stand by my belief that the Easter M&M's, with their pretty pastel colors just in time for spring and their lovely bunnies and ducks and whatnot on them, taste so much better than regular M&M's. :) And Friday I made the wonderful discover that my favorite M&M's had made their way to Ruthie's desk.
Aren't they beautiful?! Yumm!!

random thoughts

Today is National Chip and Dip Day! Try out these dip recipe's from Cooking Light (feta-spinach & avocado-yogurt) with your favorite chips (or veggies) and have fun celebrating this weekend!

I was reading an article this morning about how the world (not just America) is becoming obese. There were lots of good things in the article but here is what caught my eye and made me laugh out loud. In Scotland, health officials have placed the national dish - haggis (sheep's stomach lining stuffed with offal, oatmeal, onions, and spices, yum...) - on a list of restricted foods: They determined last year that the fat-laden dish should only be served to children under the age of 5 once a week. What? They serve this in Scottish cafeteria's? I understand it's a traditional dish but I thought it only came out on special occasions and at the Burns supper. I can gladly say that I've tried it and don't feel the need to ever have it again, much like blood sausage (black pudding). They sure do make some interesting food across the pond, don't they? Anyway, I'm glad to see the Scottish taking their obesity levels seriously and trying to make some changes, like not serving freakishly weird and uber-fatty food to their wee lads and lasses. Oh, and I should mention that I put links in the above paragraph because I didn't want to force you to look at any pictures of these foods since I couldn't find any that didn't make my stomach want to turn.

Word of the day:

Definition: (noun) a person who chatters noisily / (adjective) given to indiscriminate collecting.
Synonym: chatterbox / collector
Example: Tabitha is quite the magpie of which her blog is a great showcase.

Stay away during feeding times, she's a dangerous eater!

It's official...I'm a cannibal. Yep, it's true. I was at lunch today with my dad enjoying a nice conversation and a good meal (a veggie sandwich, my fave), like we do every Thursday. As I bit down on my sandwich I guess I got a little aggressive and actually felt myself chomp into my hand. YES, IT'S TRUE! I BIT MY HAND!!! Enough to even make it bleed! WHAT IN THE WORLD IS WRONG WITH ME? Okay, don't answer that. I already know, I'm a freak. And now it is official and I thought I should show the pictures to prove it.
My dad got a good laugh out of that but then bought me some Garfield band aids to try and make me feel better. The rest of our time together consisted of me repeatedly telling him that I bit myself, I was in shock by the whole thing. And even thinking of it now makes my stomach turn and I can still feel my skin on my teeth...OH GROSS! Surprisingly (or not, maybe) I finished my sandwich...I didn't use my left hand though. I decided I had traumatized it enough. Seriously, I must have something against my poor left hand cause that is the same hand that I bit the finger on Tuesday.

Moms can be funny

I just stepped out of my office and ran into a mom of one of our high school students. Her son hasn't been at youth group in awhile and she wanted to let me know why and all that. Without going into detail she said that he has been dealing with and working through some different learning issues but has been getting straight A's in all his classes (much better than me, and I didn't have any excuses). She ended our conversation by telling me that she told her son that he could bring it down a notch, get some B's and get a life. HAHAHA!! I love it! I love her! Oh my job is so great!

What the heck is going on?

I don't usually watch American Idol but I did this week and I'm kind of glad I did because I wouldn't have believed it if I'd only heard what happened. If you watch the show then you know about the Jungle Book kid, Sanjaya. From what everyone says, he isn't very good and no one understand why he is still on the show except for maybe because all the teeny-bopper junior high girls keep voting millions of times for him. This week the contestants had to choose songs from the 60's "british invasion". Well, Mr. Sanjaya chose to sing a beatles song (I have to give him props for that) and actually didn't do too bad but the CRAZY thing was that while he was singing they kept panning to this young girl (probably 12 or 13) who was crying...well, more like blubbering ...the whole time he sang. It was absolutely RIDICULOUS! He isn't that good and he isn't even that cute? Well, I just couldn't believe it was happening. I am in the high percentage of people who think she was a plant and I just found out that we are not far from the truth. According to a little info I just located online, this little girl was crying during the dress rehersal, the producers saw her and asked her and her mother if they would want to sit up close and personal (so they could get a good angle on her with their camera's, I'm sure) for the actual taping of the show. Those Idol peeps know how to milk it don't they? All this proven again with Sanjaya making it to the next round after last nights results show (which I missed). Oh, what is this world coming to. I wouldn't have even blogged about this except that while at the gym this morning I saw that she was going to be on the news and be interviewed. Here is where I say "What the heck is going on?"

Moving along, I've missed a couple of National Foodie days so I'll bring you up to date quickly so you don't miss out. :)
  1. March 19Th was National Poultry Day.

  2. March 20Th was National Ravioli Day.

  3. Yesterday, March 21st, was the first day of spring! I can't believe I missed it...well, didn't celebrate it. It was also FREE ICED COFFEE DAY at Dunkin' Donuts. Bummer, missed that one too. Darn it, I need to keep up on this better.

  4. Today, March 22ND has nothing going on. BUT, it is National Celery Month. Now, I know celery isn't all that exciting but it's nice and crunchy and fun to munch (with a dip or salsa) or toss into salads and stir-fry's. :)

A few other random thoughts for you today:

  1. I love Michael Buble. He is my favorite singer (has been for awhile). CHEESE ALERT! His voice and the music that he sings makes my heart happy. When I hear it I can't help but smile (or sing along...and move to the music). It's all around my favorite! And I just found out two very exciting things: he has a new ablum coming out in May and he is planning on touring this summer! Oh, this summer is getting better and better.
  2. Let's see, I think it was Tuesday and I was stopping into Winco on my way home from work. I was eating a string cheese while pulling into a parking spot and not really paying attention when all of a sudden I bit my finger. I BIT MY FINGER! Who does that? I've heard of biting your tongue or cheeck (done it plenty of times to know the pain it can cause) but a finger? And let me tell you, I must have been hungry or something cause my finger throbbed for the rest of the night. I didn't leave any marks, thank goodness...that would have been fun to explain...but goodness gracious. Who bites their finger while eating besides little babies who are still learning to eat? I'm a freak and this proves it. At least I know it though. But this should be a warning to you all...stay away from me while I'm eating, I get a little aggressive. Come to think of it, last week while eating a salad I bit the fork so hard I thought I broke my tooth. That hurts pretty darn bad too I might add.

Okay, thats it for now. Hope you all have a great day!

A few things for today

  1. March 16th is National Artichoke Heart Day. One large artichoke contains around 80 calories, virtually no fat, 600 milligrams of potassium and nearly 9 grams of fiber! Plus it's a good source of vitamin C, folate and magnesium. Try out some of these recipes, they sound mighty tasty!

  2. Random thing I found today: the university I attended, Oklahoma Christian University, is in Wikipedia. Weird.

  3. Tomorrow is St. Patricks Day!!! Don't forget to wear green or ya might get pinched! :) If you're in Portland, check out this site to help you pick what you want to do around town to celebrate!

Thursday, March 15, 2007

Here's an interesting one...

Today, March 15th, is Pears Helene Day. This little-known dessert consists of pears, vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. Annie, this day is for you. Check out this recipe to help you celebrate a tasty day (and here's another one). Oh, and since there is chocolate in this dessert, you will be simultaneously celebrating the week of chocolate. :)

Wednesday, March 14, 2007

A few fun things to talk about around the water cooler today.

Today is National Potato Chip Day. How fun is that? There are a lot of options out to so get yourself to celebrating tonight with some of your favorite (want to be healthy? Stick with "baked") chips and pair them with my favorite homemade salsa (if you try it let me know what you think, it really is the best on so many levels, taste and ease of preporation being two of them). And how could I forget, you can even make your own at home. You can make oven baked potato chips or you can even try some of these recipe's that I found at Cooking Light for different versions of baked potato fries (they do call fries "chips" in England so it still works). Sweet potato fries are the best, you have to try them!

Also, beginning today is also National Chocolate Week. Oh what a great week! Too bad National Peanut Butter Day doesn't fall in here somewhere, we all know I love that. :) Savor some dark chocolate and you'll not only be celebratin' this fantasticly yummy week but you'll also get some health benifits to boot. :) (Alison, go find those favorite mini eggs of yours and enjoy with reckless abandon). Beks and I got to do a little celebrating early when we were at the beach this weekend. We had several kinds of some oh so tasty chocolate at a fun little candy store in Seaside. Wesley introduced us to something called Chocolate Seafoam. Sounds a little weird but it is actually really good. The texture starts crunchy (similar to malt, but different) but ends on a chocolaty chewy note, yum! Oh, and how could I forget my favorite chocolate indulgence that I've told you all about so many times before: Chocolate Vitatops! :)

Oh, and check out this great picture I found. It's chocolate covered potato chips. Interesting...not sure how I feel about that.

No title for you today

Question and answer time:

  1. Finish the statement: If you knew what you know now...
    I wouldn't have worried so much over dumb things like zits and high school boys, and just enjoyed life a bit more realizing those things wouldn't be the death of me.
  2. Question: What's your favorite possession?
    The teddy bear my sister gave me when I was 7. I have been sleeping with it ever since and now it has new patches on her feet, a worn down tummy and (if you ask some of my friends) has an ever so slight tint of green to her pretty brown body. I don't care, she has been there for me in so many ways others can't and still loves me for me and I'll keep her forever or until she falls apart from being loved on for so many years (sorry for the cheese factor on that one).
  3. Anyone else feel like sharin'?

And now, time for useless food facts! Yay! Okay, I know it looks like a lot, but I'm sure you will enjoy them all so push on through. :)

  1. In medieval England beer often was served with breakfast.
  2. Grapes explode when you put them in the microwave.
  3. Only food that does not spoil: honey.
  4. The five favorite U.S. school lunches nationwide, according to the American School Food Service Association, are, in order, pizza, chicken nuggets, tacos, burritos, and hamburgers. (who remembers those days? brings back memories, huh?)
  5. When it originally appeared in 1886 - Coca Cola was billed as an "Esteemed Brain Tonic and Intellectual Beverage". (hahahaha, that's just plain funny)
  6. Beer foam will go down by licking your finger then sticking it in the beer.
  7. Milk delivered to the store today was in the cow two days ago. (craziness!)
  8. There are 2,000,000 different combinations of sandwiches that can be created from a SUBWAY menu.
  9. From 1941 until 1950, violet was part of the color mixture for "M&M's" Plain Chocolate Candies. Violet was replaced by tan. (how very boring!)
  10. Flamingo tongues were a common delicacy at Roman feasts.
  11. Ketchup was sold in the 1830s as medicine.
  12. Soy milk, the liquid left after beans have been crushed in hot water and strained, is a favorite beverage in the East. In Hong Kong, soy milk is as popular as Coca-Cola is in the U.S. (That is rather interesting. Sure would never happen here. I do love the stuff though, have it every morning.)
  13. In Australia, the Number 1 topping for pizza is eggs. In Chile, the favorite topping is mussels and clams. In the United States, it's pepperoni. (Eggs? GROSS!)
  14. The National Sausage and Hot Dog Council says when kids were asked what they would like on their hot dogs if their moms weren't watching, 25 percent said they would prefer chocolate sauce. (Kids say the darndest things, but that is just gross)
  15. Ice Cream Sundaes were created when it became illegal to sell ice cream with flavored soda on a Sunday in the Evanston, Illinois during the late 19th century. Some traders got round it by serving it with syrup instead, calling it an 'Ice Cream Sunday' and eventually replacing the final 'y' with an 'e' to avoid upsetting religious leaders. (oh, those funny religious leaders) ;)
  16. And last but not least, the age old question of what is the difference between a yam and a sweet potato is answered for you right here. According to the Mayo Clinic dietician, a true yam is a large, starchy root that can get up to 100 pounds. It is native to Africa and Asia and is seldom available in the USA. The sweet potato is a native American plant. It was a staple for early settlers and was actually brought to Europe by Columbus. There are two varieties of sweet potatoes: One is moist and orange-fleshed, the other is drier and yellow. The orange-fleshed potato is commonly - and incorrectly - called a yam. This common practice has resulted in confusion when it comes to labels. Some stores incorrectly label the darker of the two sweet potatoes as being a yam, and they list the nutrient content for yams. True yams have no vitamin A. So consumers mistakenly think that the product has no vitamin A, even though it actually does. Consumers are most likely eating sweet potatoes - and sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin A, vitamin C and fiber.

Friday, March 9, 2007

Random things for you to ponder on this Friday the 9th

  1. Today, March 9th, is National Crabmeat Day. One of my favorite websites has some fun and low-cal crab meat recipe's that look rather tasty. Try one of them out and get to celebratin.' Oh, and here are a few more to try if you want): recipes that use either canned or fresh meat; another list of recipe's.

    1. I'm wearing pigtails again. I'm getting lazier by the day. :)

    2. Have you seen the Thin Man movies? If not then you are so missing out. They are some of the best old movies I have ever seen. They a murder mystery comedies and they broke the mold. Nick and Nora Charles (the main characters) and one of the cutest married couple of all times. Check these out if you get the opportunity. If you enjoy old movies then you'll be able to see past the cheesiness and hear the fantastic dialogue and plot. I believe there are 6 movies in all so start renting tonight and watch one while you enjoy some crab meat. :)

    3. Have you seen what Hostess has come out with recently? Oh my goodness! They have made little 100 calorie packs of their tasty cupcakes. How fabulous are they?! I love the whole 100 calorie pack craze that is happening, what a great way to help people keep their indulgences under control. Smart move, food companies, smart. I haven't tried the cupcakes yet but I can't wait (I think I saw them at Winco). The flavors they are offering are chocolate cake with chocolate icing, golden cake with chocolate icing and carrot cake with cream cheese icing (OH MY GOODNESS!!). Go visit their site and answer a question or two and they'll send you a coupon for $1 off a box. How cool is that? One more thing, they even have a fiber count of 3, that is pretty darn good for a sweet treat like this. Eat up everyone and please let me know what you think (I'll do the same).

    4. I have found my new favorite flower. The Daphne, and okay, it's more of a shrub but the flowers on the shrub are what I love. And OH my word people, it smells wonderful! And it's pretty to boot. Seriously, when I smelled this flower for the first time the other day it just made me think sunshine and happiness. I know, I know, total cheese, but oh well, it's the only way I can describe it. It just made me happy and who doesn't want that? In fact, I'm so inspirired by this wonderful flower that someday I'll name my daughter after it.

    5. Statement to finish: My life would be simpler if...
    6. my apartment and car cleaned themselves (picking just one of many ways I could finish this statement so as not to bore you all to death).

    7. Question to answer: What is your guiltiest pleasure?
      I'm going to name two for you (there are so many to choose from). One - buying those favorite food items that can be rather expensive and two - an evening alone in my apartment.

Thursday, March 8, 2007


This was a birthday card I got last year from Ruthie. Very appropriate for this post.

Tuesday's are Staff Lunch around these workin' parts. Its a fun time for all us staff members to take time out of busy week and just be together. We recap the weekend and talk about what is coming up in the near future, pray for each other, hear how visiting missionaries are doing, and just have an all around refreshing, good time.

This last Tuesday, we were talking about various things and Stu made a rather random and funny comment. He asked Steve O. (who sort of emcee's our little lunches) if he could nominate the best hair for Monday. We do not do this on any sort of regular basis if that is what you are beginning to wonder. After Steve O. said sure why not, the next word Stu said was "pigtails." I don't know if everyone else knew quite as fast as I did, but he was definitely referring to my complete laziness on Monday morning when I decided I didn't feel like drying and flattening my hair and just threw up two very spunky pigtails.

That's how I roll, folks. Can't help it when I have short hair, not too many options. There's just not much else you can do when you feel like being lazy and don't even want to spend the few minutes drying it. Once you commit to drying it then you have style it and if you already don't have enough ambition to even dry it how the heck are you going to make yourself stand there for the ever so long 5 minutes it takes to straighten? Suffice it to say, it made for a nice ending to our staff lunch and a nice boost to my pigtail wearing confidence. Thanks Stu! :)

Well, I wore them again today, a bit more conservatively (Oh yes, pigtails are a very versital hair option if you didn't know), and have been getting all sorts of comments. Stu happened to come by my office for something and when he walked in said "Hey pigs." I know I have said it before, but I will most satisfacorily say it again, I LOVE WORKING HERE!!

the more fun and spunky "pigs": high and closer to the face. Not quite the same as they were on Monday, but you get the idea.
The back...nice and straight. :)
The conservative "pigs": lower and further back, more behind the ears.

Today, March 8th, is National Peanut Cluster Day. Get out there and celeberate!

Here are a few recipe's for ya to try out today. :)

Peanut, raisin and chocolate clusters (I bet dried cranberries or blueberries would be fun to try too)

Not necessarily a peanut cluster but a close cousin and it sounded so delish I had to put it on here, Heavenly Hash. It combines the usual chocolate, peanuts and peanut butter, but also throws in some marshmellows and graham crackers for a nice combo of smooshyness and crunch. :)

Wednesday, March 7, 2007

March 7th, 2007

Today is National Cereal Day. My favorites are Kashi Go Lean and Fiber One. Both very tasty on their own, but add some berries or a banana and your in cereal heaven.
What other information that needs to go along with this little tid-bit is that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. There have been lots of studies done and articles written to help show this to be quite true.

I personally love eating breakfast...who am I kidding? I just love to eat...whenever. Check out this website for lots of fun things about breakfast.

Word of the Day: Devise
(Verb) To invent.
Synonym: Create
Usage: With Trina off to Africa, Tabitha devised a plan to take over the Student Ministries office.
(totally kidding!!)

A fun weekend

This weekend was pretty darn fun, if I do say so myself.
First, I had the priviledge of attending a birthday party for Lucy, who turned 90 years old this weekend. Lucy is the mother of Phylis, one in a group of 5 bestfriends (my mom of course being one of them) whom have been friends with since they were 12 years old (that translates into about 48 years of friendship, wow). I have fond memories of visiting Lucy at the lake where she lives (and has lived FOREVER) and making apple butter with her. Isn't she adorable? Doesn't look 90, does she? Oh, and I should add that her sister was at the party and she had just turned 95. They have some very good gene's in that family.
(Lucy and Tabs)
(My mom, Lucy and Connie sneakin' into the picture)

Here is the whole crew (L to R: My mom (Katy), Phylis, Joanne, Lucy, Connie and Linda). I am in a group of 5 friends from high school, I sure hope we can make it a party like this some day. :)

Second, I got to hang out with some good friends and make a new one. We played darts, had a traditional English dish called Bangers and Mash, and played some pool. A very fun night!

(Andy, Wes, Tabs and Beks)

I know, it looks gross but it was OH SO GOOD!!!

Beks and I, before I kicked her butt at darts. ;)

Well, there ya go, my fun-filled weekend. I didn't bore ya, did I? (not that I really care). Anyway, hope your weekend was fun, too! And I hope you have a great day and enjoy the wonderful sunshine (well, that is, if you live here in the wonderful and beautiful Northwest)!

Oh, and by the way, today, March 6th, is National Frozen Food Day. Heat up and eat up, everybody. :)

Little tasty factoid for you

This is Chocolate Chip Cookie Week....

So get to celebratin'! Here is a fun article with great tips on making the best chocolate chip cookies and offers up variations on the original.

Here is a little history for you: The original chocolate chip cookie, the Toll House Cookie, was invented by Ruth Graves Wakefield in the 1930s. Ruth and her husband Kenneth owned the Toll House Inn, near Whitman, Massachusetts. Ruth cooked for her guests, and one day had to substitute semi-sweet chocolate for baker's chocolate in a cookie recipe. She chopped the chocolate in bits, but when she took the cookies from the oven, the semi-sweet chocolate had not melted into the dough as the baker's chocolate had. These cookies with chocolate 'chips' became an immediate hit with her guests. The official state cookie of Massachusetts is the chocolate chip cookie, invented in 1930 at the Toll House Restaurant. On February 7, 2001, the Chocolate Chip Cookie was declared the official cookie of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
There is also a lot more very intersting (and possibly scandaleous) cookie history that you should check out at wikipedia, if you find this at all interesting (which I do, actually). :)
Today, half the cookies baked in American homes are chocolate-chip, with an estimated seven billion consumed annually. Wow, that is a lot of cookies! To help out this statistic, here is another page filled with yummy sounding cookie recipe's. Give 'em a try and let me know how they turn out.

And who doesn't love to take a nice warm, fresh out of the oven, ooey-gooey chocolate chip-melting cookie and dip it into some ice cold milk...YUM!!! Okay, my mouth is watering now. Time to go.

Have a great chocolate chip cookie week everyone!

Friday, March 2, 2007

Did you know...

Monday, February 26th was National Pistachio Day. Pistachios are a good source of fiber, vitamin B6, thiamin, magnesium, phosphorus and copper. Not too bad with chocolate either.

Tuesday, February 27th, is National Strawberry Day. Northwest strawberries are world-renowned as extremely flavorful and juicy, more so than strawberries from California and other regions. They have lots of vitamin C in them and they are also the state fruit of Luouisiana. Very, very good with chocholate!

Wednesday, February 28th, is International Pancake Day. I don't have much to say about pancakes except...YUM! Especially when they are of the blueberry variety. Also, can be good with chocolate.
Thursday, March 1st, is National Peanut Butter Lover's Day. What a great day, my favorite so far this week! OH SO GOOD WITH CHOCOLATE!!
Friday, March 2nd, is National Banana Cream Pie Day. It actually originated in China. I bet it would be good with chocolate, infact here is a recipe for you to try.
March is National Noodle Month AND National Peanut Month. Noodles are probably not so good with chocolate and I'm sure you already know where I stand on peanuts and chocolate. :)
And lastly, I love my job! I work with some amazing people! We're are sure going to miss Trina around these parts. Here is one final shot of our little gang. :) Oh, and all these people like (if not love) chocolate. :)

Did you find the underlying theme in this post?
