Chocolate

My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished 2 bags of M and M's and a chocolate cake. I feel better already. ~ Dave Barry

I was talking to a friend of mine over a bowl of icecream at Baskin Robbins yesterday. The question asked, "Why do you blog, and who in the world would read your blog?"

Throwing this out there to my darling 10 readers...why do you read this blog? Surely my life cannot be as scintillating as yours. My response was that in this modernistic society, humans as social beings enjoy voyeuristic activities. That's why reality shows have done so well, we want to be entertained, seeing people like us going through similar situations, living their lives the best way they know how.

Of course, I did educate them properly into the blogosphere, after all, ignorance is not really considered bliss. I do tend to get on my soapbox when talking about blogs, but it's just the writer in me struggling to come out.

Speaking of bliss, I got to try champagne filled chocolates the other day. I didn't even know that was possible. They were absolutely divine! For those with the sweet tooth, you really must be made aware that you cannot eat just one.

Now see - if it weren't for reading this blog - I wouldn't have known there were Champagne-filled Chocolates. You can get your choc-fix AND get yer drink on. Who could beat that?? lol.

Also -- in this country, at least -- morale is low. It helps us to feel like we're connecting with someone new. And to know there are others out there with the same neuroses, problems, cravings, weaknesses, bad dates, crazy mothers, etc. that sometimes make us feel like the oddest oddballs on Earth.

But I can only speak for myself ;)

I think we all frequent the blogs of those with whom we share common interests or those that we find amusing.

I read your blog because you write really well and we share common interests and experiences. The quotes are very good too. Shit, you know how much I rate you!

It's always good to visit a blog that is well written and inspires some thought. I always hope that I can do that (or at least entertain a little). Your blogs do all of these, that's why I and others like to visit.
