Friday Questionnaire

1. Why would chocolatiers sully perfectly good chocolate with lemon filling?

2. WHY??

3. So, how are you? Any good weekend plans?

4. Imagine if spammers redirected their evil genius to do something good for the world...I guess that's not really a question. Is it?

1. It's a conspiracy wrought by the Citrus Fruit Growers Association.

2. The history goes back to those chocolate oranges that break up into sections. The cocoa growers believed they should receive the bulk of the profits because it is essentially chocolate that sells that product. However, the CFGA argued that the product being sold was in fact in the same form factor as an orange. After this, talks between the two groups broke down and even a third-party mediator was unable to bring them back together. The chocolate industry seemingly won out, and continued to manufacture similar products, such as the chocolate lime, without the consent of the CFGA. In retaliation, the CFGA stepped up production of lemon filling and started a grass-roots movement to alter every known chocolate product. In the future, look for news stories to appear claiming chemicals in chocolate are human carcinogens or cause epilepsy. Those citrus goons are relentless.

3. I'm doing pretty good. On Sunday morning the curling club is having a breakfast in celebration of Robbie Burns and in the tradition of the Burns' Supper. There is a good chance I will try, for the first and possibly the last time, the haggis.

4. Yes.

Whoa. I had no idea a huge citrus conspiracy was going on right beneath my nose.

OK, that Robbie Burns poem, like, totally doesn't make any sense. It's all, like, written funny and stuff? Whatever.

to answer my own questions:

1. Evil


3. I'm doing well, if tired. It's a sunny day, which makes me happy. As for the weekend...Tonight I'm just going to relax & stay in, maybe bake oatmeal cookies & watch a movie. (I bake the BEST oatmeal cookes; recipe can be found in the cookbook Laurel's Kitchen.) I'm glad I don't have to supervise practice tonight.

Tomorrow, tai chi class, follwed by hanging out with my brother in the afternoon. Maybe dinner out with friends, depending on how fatigued G. is after completing the qual exams (poor guy).

Sunday, no shiatsu clients yet, so I chill.

4. I think the implied questions are, what would they do? Wouldn't the world be a grand place? Imagine using all that SPAM-power to raise consciousness rather than sell V1 agr@. We'd all be enlightened already!

1. I honestly couldn't say. Perhaps they forgot to take their meds?

2. See above.

3. I'm doing okay. I'm very busy today and kind of irritated by a few work-things, but as of 4:30 p.m. today, I am on vacation all through next week, so I am feeling very good indeed about that.

4. Yes, imagine that. Also, Imagine no religion. It's easy if you try. No hell below us. Above us only sky.

1. The tomato filling just wasn't working out.

2. They hate America.

3. Reasonably happy with moments of unreasonably excited anticipation of all the wonderful things I won't get around to doing in my spare time this weekend, which includes: organizing a disaster of a closet into my new! fabulous! filing cabinet; working on a proposal to redesign a company's website; writing poems for my writing group's meeting on Tuesday; DVDs of "That 70s Show" and "Midsomer Murders;" sex.

4. No.

Ew, tomato filling. How do you think of these things?
