Love of chocolate (and books!)

Ahem… In reference to my last post, that whole thing about never having had chocolate before? That was my example. To emphasis what I meant. Sort of. Ish. I didn’t actually mean that I’ve never had chocolate before. I have. In fact, I love it. Chocolate cake, hot chocolate, peanut M&Ms, Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Cream, Twix, white chocolate, milk chocolate, those giant Kisses and all that jazz? I love chocolate. But I used it as an example because I figured it’d be easy to understand. Ish. Like you experience something really awesome (i.e. chocolate) and then after, all you want is that really awesome thing (i.e. chocolate). Not to say that I’ve never had it before. I have. Many times before. In fact, I’m eating M&Ms right now. So umm, yeah, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way…

Anyways, I head out to the public library (a very local one) for the first time in… a very long time. And borrowed a bunch of books. I have a two from a teen chick lit series that I’m too ashamed to mention the series title to you all. I also borrowed Blog: Understanding the Information Reformation That’s Changing Your World by Hugh Hewitt and Alternacrafts by Jessica Vitkus. I’ve read the introduction to the one by Hewitt and I’ve flipped through the photos (because a picture says a 1000 words, right?) by Vitkus. The projects are cute, and most of them are fairly easy. So it’ll give me something to do when I have free time (free time – time when I don’t have to study and I’m not catching up on blog entries via my RSS feeds… And when I don’t feel like baking, because then it just turns ‘free time’ into ‘baking time’). But you know what I saw at the library today? See, they’ve mentioned in the local newspapers that the library has a games catalogue. Like games for Playstation and XBox-360 and Wii but I’ve never seen any games on the shelves (near the dvds, of course) because they’re always all out! So today, I was looking for a Monty Python dvd (couldn’t find it) but I saw a video game. First time ever. But it was some Barbie game and very pink. And rated ages 6+. Plus, you know, I don’t own any game consoles, so that would make borrowing it a waste of time. But it was still pretty cool to see it there.

And can you believe it’s the end of February already? It seems like it went by so fast (and I had an entire week off that just seemed to drag on forever – note to self: don’t complain next time!). Next year will be interesting, since I’ll be getting 2 weeks off instead of just the usual one week. I have no clue what I’ll do with myself during that time. Maybe I’ll just stay at home and study the entire time? (… You can all stop laughing now, I can hearing the snickering!) Or maybe I’ll just go somewhere and take a small vacation… And yes, I just remembered that I have no money, and therefore that makes taking a small vacation kind of silly and improbable. I shall have to see. Maybe I’ll just craft and study for a week (I totally know how to live it up, honest).

Questions:

  1. What’s your favourite type of chocolate? (Flavour? Brand?)
  2. Do you have to pay an annual fee for a library card in the area where you live?
  3. When was the last time you went on a major vacation?

My answers:

  1. I’m a fan of white chocolate. And Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Cream. And Twix. Hmmm, chocolate…
  2. No, I don’t. I’m pretty sure that they are subsidized from tax money paid to the city. However, I read an article the other day about how people are feeling really happy about how $24 can get them a library card in a city in Alberta (can’t remember which one anymore).
  3. Umm… Summer of 2000.

    1. I absolutely love dark chocolate! I don’t have a favorite brand in particular; as long as it’s dark I’ll most likely love it.
    2. Nope. I can’t even remember if I had to pay to get one, because I got it so long ago.
    3. Last summer. We booked a vacation with a travel group and ended up spending a week on a bus with strangers going through Yellowstone Park and small, obscure Midwestern towns. I celebrated my 20th birthday on that bus too, haha.
