Pure Decadence.


My husband and I tried some of these alcoholic choccies from Chasers' Kentucky Chocolate on our travels and they were beautiful. I don't tend to enjoy liquor at all, but was pleasantly surprised by the balance of booze and bliss in these delightful little treats. They weren't overpowering but they give a pleasant little buzz.
Kentucky had another fantastic Epicurean offering in the form of the Whistle Stop. They had the best damn meatloaf I have ever had the pleasure of serving my mouth. It was topped with skinless tomato pieces that were sweetened somehow and it was fantastic.
Great. Now I'm going to be really bummed out by my crappy microwaveable entree.

Having great meal in restaurant for anniversary is naughty, delicious yummy yummy chocolate is decadence. If it is any solace, I too like chocolate, and I do envy You when I read your descriptions, it almost make me bite my table. Good news is, that the school year is here in short, so you will stick to ranting about your pupils again and my desk will hopefully survive. ;-)

Hahaha! Nice to know my mediocre writing skills are sufficient enough to get across how much I adore my food!
Yes, not long now until I start ranting about more delightful work-related antics... Ugh. I'm going to miss my little munchkin...

By the way, thanks for the links for those children's shows! They were very nostalic because they reminded me of the British kids shows that were similar in pacing and style... I'll put some links up for those some day.

My pleasure. Memories and nostalgy is exactly what I felt making the list. I'd like to add Bumblebees, with precious songs, popular even among the grown-ups. Once again I must tell how much I pity todays kids. What will they feel, when they find out what they've been watching? The travesty masterpiece is dubbed here teledumbies.

And I also wanted to ask about the Arab world. Do they too have something notable, or is arab TV all just "Let's kill them Yahood!"?

TeacherLady said...

Hahaha! Actually, if I ever watched any Arabic children's programming, it was an anime style cartoon about a little soccer played named Majid, or other Japanese anime dubbed in Arabic, or else one of the Arabic versions of Sesame Street (called "Iftah Ya Simsim", which translates to "Open Sesame").
My country isn't as involved in brainwashing the next generation of would-be terrorists as they are just living the capitalistic life of luxury. The brainwashing went on in the Islamic classrooms taught by Palestinian teachers who had more of a taste for spreading ignorance than knowledge. Obviously that's just based on my own experiences because my sister tells me she had an amazingly open-minded Islamic teacher who had nothing but good experiences to offer...
I've heard of the cartoons that support the concept of "martyrs" and it makes me sick.

I adore children and the idea of using them in that way or bringing them for a taste for violence is absolutely disgusting. I don't care anything about anyone's "cause" once they bring together children and violence. I no longer care who is in the "right" or who has a justifiable reason. I stop listening once they teach their kids that crap.

Now, if my memory serves me well:
"There will be peace, when Palestinians will love their children more than they hate Israel. - Golda Meir"

Isn't the girl sweet?
