Theobromine, the active ingredient in these delightfully potent cacao nibs,
is what I need to just survive some days.
…this is what I get, really, and I deserve it completely.
- Chocolate gelato
- Coconut sorbet
- Local pecans, shelled and halved
- Organic Bing Cherries, fresh
- Organic raw cacao nibs
Add those things together, and you get what after work treat I had to have, in order to recover from my day. I also bought sliced almonds, four individual packs of dark chocolate covered dried cranberries, a six-pack of whole-foods knockoff Dr. Pepper, a small block of cheese and a pound of coffee (Organic Mind Body and Soul, for you/us, O Da Spouse).
So I basically spent $35 on vices.
I did need the ultra-powered chocolate-goodness though. That was possibly the best sundae I’ve ever had in my life, and it lasted all of about three minutes.
But I’m full, and content, which is more than I can say for when I left work.
Of course, it’s the sheer availability of most of these items that makes me love this town — and the employee discount that makes me love my job.
On one geeky note: I’m helping a friend of mine do research for a web comic (graphic novel?) she’s writing (yes, really) and I went to the public library this afternoon for materials. What I came home with: Teach Yourself Romanian and a CD of Romanian/Hungarian Gypsy music.
