Stand up, we'll get you on your feet again.

I don't think I can ever have those double chocolate coffee toffee cookies again. At least, I can never have the entire package in one sitting again unless I'm willing to officially get back on the caffeine train. I have a splitting headache today that I've only barely managed to dull by drinking my entire daily tea allowance at once along with two Advil and an aspirin (it's a poor man's Excedrin!). It's coming back now anyway. Blast.

On the plus side, I made a shirt that actually functions as a shirt, which is something I'd been deathly afraid to even try. Shirts are complicated. Sleeves? Please. Give me skirts any day: cut out two identical pieces, turn them back to back and sew two sides, and throw some elastic into the waist. If you get bored and stop sewing halfway down one side, then it's a slit skirt and that's even more exciting. I still think you get more bang for your buck with skirts (since one stinkin' long-sleeved t-shirt used up most of a yard of fabric, most of a big spool of thread, and most of yesterday), but I do now have an excitingly stripey shirt where previously I only had an excitingly stripey square.

Now I am neither square nor bare, but that is neither here nor there.

You'll have to acknowledge your chocolates first, missy. Sheesh!

Oh my goodness, I'm such a schmuck.

Those were such phenomenal chocolates. I opened the package in the car, and within 2.4 seconds the entire place smelled like cocoa. My roommate was driving, and nearly broke her neck trying to see the different things I was pulling out of the envelope - I was keeping them very secretive so that she couldn't snatch them away (because she'll do that if you don't watch her). We ate chocolate ecstatically, and, even though it was hard, I limited myself to, like, five pieces a day. It was the best mid-winter gift I could have ever hoped for! Thank you thank you thank you!
