Is It Physically Possible to Eat More Chocolate?

Apparently, this is the science experiment I am currently engaged in.

The good new is: I hit the motherload of presents!

I can see! I can see! Goggles with corrective lenses! Thanks E.!

Number One Daughter picked out this fabulous new nightie ... OK, maybe it's a little big, but I'll be filling it out in NO TIME at the rate I'm going.

A new work accessory, It's a MAJOR AWARD! given to me by NOD, who knows me like a book. I think it will bring just the right note of decorum to my work life.

I spent a relaxing afternoon crying underneath my new ELECTRIC BLANKET while reading this fabulous book about Terry Fox by Douglas Coupland, one of two sent to me by none other than your Running Blogfather. You just never know when he'll show up.

As usual we finished off gift giving with a yummy breakfast of homemade french toast made with homemade bread. Yum.




Oh and NOD got a few trinkets, too:



I hope your Christmas was as peaceful and happy as ours was.
Midnight Mass

Looks like you had a great time!

Merry Christmas! (I think I can still say that)

Nice! You did well in the present department. I need to get my Christmas post up soon.

I certainly hope that the answer to your question is "NO!" because I might die from insulin shock, otherwise.

Nice, looks like you got some good gifts - and you gave some nice gifts as well (the iPod).

Glad to see you had a good Christmas!

Fabulous!

I feel the same way -- soon we're going to have to move to a bigger house to accommodate my Christmas cookie habit.

A great day full of happines and ....gifts. I am curious to know the results of the chocolate experiment: could be subject for a Nobel?

David said...

A lamp with provocative legs. A pic of you in a nightie. Talk of chocolate indulgences. What is this? An adult site?

Anne said...

Sounds like your holiday was the perfect blend of tradition, surprise and unbridled picture-taking.

Phil said...

It's always possible to eat more chocolate ... especially at this time of the year. It looks like you had a great Christmas. Hope you new year goes as well.

Verry Verry Nice and Merry! Is that the lamp from A Chritmas Story?

I'm studying a related theme - christmas pudding/mince pie consumption. Stopping TODAY (after one more...)

Rae said...
