The alarm went off this morning at 7. Ted turned it off, an action I fully supported. A couple hours later, when we dragged ourselves to consciousness, he said, “It went off and I thought, “I’m too full to get up.”" *laughs* We may have eaten tooooo much red beans and rice and German chocolate cake yesterday. But MMMM it was yummy! (Did you know, incidentally, that German chocolate is not Germanic in origin, but was created by a man named German? Originally it was German’s chocolate, but the possessive was dropped very early on for euphonic reasons.)

I tell you, I don’t know. Maybe I need to take a break from blogging, or something. I don’t seem to be finding much of anything to write about these days.

I'd not heard of German Chocolate at all, so I must admit I'd never been misled in that way.

(Chocolate made by Kraft? Eeek!)

I did not know that. You're not just fun; you're educational! Who knew? ;)

I hadn't ever heard that, no. But I love to hear about etymology like that. For some reason, it fascinates me.

I didn't know that about German chocolate.

BTW, Take A Chance #2 still hasn't shown up at my comic shop. Should I be worried? I haven't seen it on Diamond's weekly list of comics shipping in the last two weeks either.

*goes and looks up the schedule*

It should, as far as I can tell, have been out last week. Ask your comic shop about it?
