Last week at work was much more on the stressful side than I wanted. Usually I pack up the week’s worries when I shut down my computer and neaten my office; this week it was Sunday before I really let go of the stress.
Tomorrow I go back. So I’m going to include a few things that made me smile this weekend.
- Chocolate: The Consuming Passion I’ve had this book for over a decade and I never fail to laugh at the recipe for advanced chocolate molding (“Find: 1 medium-size lethargic pig”) or the directions for growing your own chocolate (“You will need: 1 small plantation / 4,000 or so cacao seedlings / Time”).
- Spoonforkfuls did a step-by-step comparison of Lessons from the Fat-o-Sphere to a typical diet book.
- The sex-toy store Babeland has Lipstick and Hello Kitty vibrators. Yes, the Hello Kitty one comes in pink. Just knowing that they exist makes me smile.
How about you? Is Monday something you look forward to, or a major time/life shift, or just another day?
