Comments: Three Random Neurons Firing

I? Will save you a SEAT. For surely I will be the first to... PERISH! (HOW could you leave out the part about all the people who PERISHED? I'm certain it was a result of all the GOING DOWN... but they died happy, I'll wager.)

And you're going to have such a fun, red-wine fueled time down there! Please save space:) (Because I'm sure it's really just a lovely corner of heaven reserved for us deserving few ... who can laugh with and at God ... just as he laughs at and with us!)

Well, as Mark Twain said, "Heaven for climate, hell for society."

The narrator obviously went to the William Shatner school of elocution.

Flavanoids, I think? They're in red wine? Yea!

I feel for you, Joshilyn. I have the same organic grocery addiction. I spent $200 this morning on school lunchbox fixings--tiny boxes of organic raisins, Happy Cox milk cartons, individual packages of organic peanut butter crackers, bags of bulk items like yoghurt pretzels, rice crackers, and carob-coated peanuts. I then read the riot act to my first grader. "You will eat everything in your lunchbox or bring the leftovers home. You will not throw a single 5 cent raisin nor half of a $1 Happy Cow milk box away. You will be healthy, even if we do have to live in a box."

Happy Cox? I need me some of that. (Talk about perishing).

I wonder if the Patriarch guy is related to Barbara Cartland? That's exactly how I remember the love scenes from her books back when I read a few in my early teens --- "Oh, god! I...never this!" Maybe BC was really the Patriarch guy in drag!

Oh. My. Goodness. Someone come pick my crumpled body off the floor. Can Kira come to my house next?

Oh, the PATRIARCH GUYS!! They are here in Idaho too!! When I see them I always say there's no way I could be their woman because they don't BATHE ENOUGH nor do they have acceptable teeth for KISSING and then I start talking about about more kissing and what THAT leads to and then they call me a whore and then I laugh and leave.

You know, I actually kept it together until I read the last line of this post, and then I laughed so hard, I snorted flavonoid-ladened red wine up my nose!

It was the WALKING. The pound lost? It was from the way we ATTACKED those trails, it was.
When I got home, Clay asked me what you guys were like in person, and I burbled enthusiastically about you both for a while, then added, "And Joss - I LIKE the way that girl walks."
This earned me a LOOK, and then I had to explain myself for a while.
But I DO.

Where is Whole Foods? 12 or 14 babies!!! I will now notice how you walk...? I am also very curious about Mir and Kira.

ROFLMAO..."But it broked-ded by itself!"...I would have cracked up before I even turned around!

Joss, I'm so sorry that I used the phrase "Happy Cox" in your comment section. It was a typo, I swear. Although it does seem that we need to find Kismet a boyfriend.

Here I was innocently reading CCN and look what I found:
It's not exactly a guilt-free pleasure, but food researchers say cocoa beans could be good for you. The health potential is real. Cocoa beans have natural compounds called flavanols, and a growing pile of scientific research suggests they do good things to blood vessels

SSSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOO- Red Wine & Chocolate are good for us!!!!! I love it!!!!!
