Day 14

Thursday, June 14, 2012
What food brings you intense joy to eat?

Well, I think the obvious answer would be CHOCOLATE. I love to eat it AND drink it! I may even choke it down even when there's a disgusting raisin in the middle of it. But, I prefer when there's a juicy strawberry covered in it. Or a banana. Or a marshmallow, peanut, popcorn, potato chip, you name it. I think the only line I'd draw when it comes to chocolate is no chocolate covered bugs, please.

Back when we were dating, CSJ would always pick me up from work or school or home with a Hostess ChocoBliss in the car waiting for me. (hmmm, why was I so fat at our wedding again?) I don't think Hostess makes those anymore, which is a shame. They were awesome!

Holy crap! I Googled ChocoBliss, in hopes of finding a picture to share with you. I did find a picture,
but I also found this!

I don't even remember this commercial, but man, do I remember that cake!

My new bestie, Funny, had the nerve to ask me who Monkey is today. Hmph. I can see she's missed a post or two. But, all is forgiven. I'm sentencing her to read back through ALL my archives, though. This is post #1356, so I see she's gonna be real busy this weekend. =)

Here, Funny, is my Monkey!!!

Isn't it too bad she doesn't like to swing? How dare my brother torture her like that! Those must have been screams of terror, don't you think?

I love you can see how freakishly long her legs are here. She's gonna be a heart-breaker, that one!

I have been shamed but I have not read all the way through from start to finish, any blogs (except my sister's) so forgive me. I plan to pick my favorites and start from scratch on each one. Have you read mine from the start? Now that will be fun. Ha!

I hear ya sistah...chocolate is the intense food! Chocodiles are my favorite but the only store I could find them at got a remodel and no longer sells them :(

And see...I only like chocolate if it is surrounded by nuts. I am nutty like that.
I've never heard of those cakes...but apparently CJS knew to reach your heart, he had to go through food. :)
That monkey...I scream like that in a swing too. No wonder no one wants to push me anymore. She is a DOLL!

It's all about cake for me.
I do like the sweet salty combos too! But not usualy in my cake. Dense cake, thick sweet frosting and I'm good to go.

I am almost through 2008 of your blog.

Yes, clearly that child was in need of some sort of domestic violence intervention. Cruel, cruel man. But boy is she cute!

I'm also going to try to not to be hurt that Funny is your new bestie. I thought we had something real here. I would go bury myself in one of those chocolate things, but I don't know what they are and I hear they aren't around anymore. Oh, and I'm with you on chocolate - especially the one covering a strawberry. I decided at the beginning of the year that if I was going to indulge, that was the height of happiness! I actually prefer them atop a double chocolate cake with chocolate chips lining the outside of the cake and then the chocolate covered strawberries on top of the cake with a bit of whipped cream.

Can you tell I've had a LOT of time away from such things to imagine what I really want???
