Someone’s going to have chocolate for breakfast

I was paying too much attention to the vicious speech and its aftermath, the twisting non-apology that came only after advertisers started to bail, to the much-ignored fact that one of Ms. Fluke’s points was that birth control pills are used in treating ovarian cysts and ovarian cancer, which is what her friend had needed them for.

I was one of many who wrote to the folks funding his show, but finally, enough–I needed an antidote to all that.

Her timing was perfect: my friend Jade called and came by in the afternoon. We’d run into each other at Stitches for the first time in probably three years and were interrupted, and it was such a joy to just sit down and spend some time together, this time with a cheerful, “Hi, Jade!” from Richard. And I do like to show him off. He’s a good one.

And then as soon as the sun was down enough, he and I went to Milk Pail to get manufacturing cream–and it was in stock this time! Yes! We got the last one. Totally lucked out.

And so (bwaahaahaa) at around ten, after checking with her beforehand to make sure she would be up and it would be okay, we delivered a late-night snack, a still-warm chocolate torte to Becca’s door.

It felt so good to see her so delighted. It did me much good. Chocolate torte: comes in self-serving sizes.

You are a good friend Alison. I hope Becca is familiar with Bill Cosby’s defense of cake for breakfast. My father adored that … skit?

A certain idiot — R L — must have constipation because he is full …

Self-serving sizes — I like that.

Mmmmmmmm……chocolate! Makes almost anything easier to take. Yay for Becca and all the people who truly care about one another.

The incomprehensible idiots in the news…???? Not enough chocolate.

And if the chocolate didn’t make it better, a certain drug-addicted hate monger has lost 7-9 sponsors by now. They’re dropping so fast that I’m having a hard time keeping track…………..
