Last post today, I SWEAR

Because I felt so bad for my boss, with her birthday being a celebration of yucky-sounding fish, I went to Famima!! to pick up a few items so that we could celebrate National Bittersweet Chocolate Day in style. I bought some nice, expensive organic chocolate bars, and then I saw these things. Pocky Stix are nothing new to me, but I'd never noticed Men's Bitter Chocolate flavor before. Men's? What does that mean? It reminds me of the Yorkie, an irritating English candy bar that Norman insists on buying every time we go to Cost Plus. It's a solid milk chocolate bar, nothing special, but the packaging says, "Not for birds," i.e., not for girls. I think that's why he buys it. Anyway, the bitter chocolate Pocky Stix are superb, and I'll fight any man who tries to come between me and this new taste sensation.

I love Pocky, although we don't get much of it up here in Maine. I have to go to the FYE in the Mall, and they don't even have it all the time...

Rod likes Yorkies too. He gets his at this English pub in Sierra Madre. They have a nice selection of English chocolates in the back storeroom. Good fish n' chips too.
