chocolates

posting schedule

Hello Justice readers,

I just wanted to let you know that Justice chapter 15 is with the betas and I'm planning to publish it next Sunday night, unless the betas are so offended by its suckiness that major rewrites have to happen. (I hope not!)  By the way, if you still haven't done the poll, please do the poll! It's here:  www.livejournal.com/poll/So far 36 helpful people have participated, and I'm hoping to get a few more before I close it.

Well, I got through the Easter weekend with only mild pigging out on chocolate. Nowhere near as bad as previous years. I'm not going to buy any more chocolate either, even though it'll all be on sale tomorrow. If I don't have it in the house, I can't pig out on it. It's as simple as that.

Welllll..... except for Russel Stover marshmallow milk chocolate eggs with caramel. There's something about chocolate, caramel and marshmallow together that really gets my taste buds excited! But I'd have to go all the way to London Drugs to get some, and I think we can all safely assume that I'm too lazy to do that.

I did a detox recently, and gave myself the most amazing thing as a reward when I was done. It was three marshmallows on a skewer, dipped into sticky-soft caramel, and then dipped many times into milk chocolate so as to form a thick shell. Oh.My.God. Now, there was a treat that deserved my full attention. I skulked off to eat it alone, and I have to say that that was one of the rare times in my life when I achieved the ability to be 100 percent inside the present moment. When I bit into it, the chocolate, caramel and marshmallow all melted at different rates inside my extremely appreciative mouth. And the best part was that I have relived that happy memory many times, and don't feel any particular need to rush off and have another one.
