...There is a new restaurant in L.A. called "ChocoChicken" that serves bittersweet cocoa coated chicken; you can even dip the chicken in chocolate ketchup! Oh, and one of their side dishes is ChocMashed potatoes! Apparently they are all the rage and already planning to expand operations due to their popularity.

Who would have thunk of that idea?

Well, it felt like it anyway. Have you ever driven out on Auberry Road up to Millerton Store? In a car, I never noticed the gradual and persistent uphill grade for approximatley 12 miles until my husband encouraged me to ride my new carbon-fiber bicycle (that is so light I can pick it up with one finger) with him yesterday. He has been encouraging me to stay fit, ride with him more, and has been gently challenging me to take some new paths.

.....irritability, temperament changes, biting questions, subjective assumptions, mood swings, bloating....well, it's not what you're thinking. The time of the month I'm referring to is the dreaded "month end close"!

Something so horrific, so widespread, it is rampant and unbridled and if it goes unchecked can be an outright plague-the common "cold"....oooooh, how I abhor it. I've sat on the couch the last three days watching re-runs of the Andy Griffith show, with piles of kleenex, Zycam, throat lozenges and fluids trying to barrigade myself from further pestilence, all the while trying to comfort my whining husband who claimed to have it worse than me (well, he actually did!).

Okay, whose bright idea was it to go to Disneyland and California Adventure the day after Christmas....oh, that's right, it was my idea. I thought it was supposed to be the "happiest" place on earth....well, normally it would be, but a "bajillion" other people had the crazy idea of being there the same time me and my family were there, the nerve!

Remember the movie Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray? He plays a TV weatherman named Phil who works for a local station in Pennsylvania. He's charming on camera but when the red light goes off he becomes self-centered, treats his co-workers with contempt and is just plan old mean. He is covering the story about "Punxsutawney Phil" who is a groundhog that has the ability to determine the length of winter by his ability to see his shadow.
