I'm having a hard time resisting it -- temptation, that is. In the form of two big packages of Ghirardelli chocolates, not-quite-hidden in the bottom drawer of my filing cabinet. One's mint-chocolate squares, the other a variety mix, and they're both calling my name.


It's not fair, I tell you. I'm in the home stretch of the workout challenge at the health club, and I'm trying to be good. Well, okay. Sorta good.

But when really fabulous chocolate starts singing its siren song, how can I refuse?

So I'm doling out no more than two squares a writing session, pretending that really doesn't count. Besides, isn't dark chocolate supposed to be good for you?

One and a half weeks to go before we weigh out. Then chocolate and me, we're having a nice, loooong discussion. :)

What's your temptation? What are you finding hard to resist?

As one of my fellow Fuzzy Monkeys says, and I agree: "Dark chocolate is chocolate. Milk chocolate is candy. I don't eat candy." ;)

Well, the fact that I have half a double chocolate Swiss roll, chocolate birthday cake, a large bar of Milka chocolate, a box of Austrian chocolate and a box of Milk Tray sitting around the house might give you some clue as to what my temptation is.

The reason there's so much is that ALL of it arrived yesterday, when it was both my birthday and the day my dad and brother came back from Austria. By the end of the week, there will probably be almost none left.

And I will be eating lettuce the week after.

M-dith and cat/kate -- can I come over to play? You both sound well-stocked with chocolate. :)
