Chocolate Flavor Anonymous

Wait a minute now! I’m browsing the Net today, and it’s so funny how things usually happen for me, but this angsty headline catches me in the hair follicle of a click, almost turning my keyboard upside down.

Whadt!?! Chocolate Associated with Depression?

No way! I’ve been hooked on chocolate since I was two. And I know I had nothing to be depressed about at two. Well, maybe I did, but I wouldn’t have known about it. And still, after all these years eating chocolate like a straight line is long, I’m still not depressed. At least I don’t think I feel depressed. Now, it might be if hooked up to a good depression monitor that baby might turn out all of earth’s lights, but even that don’t prove nothing to me.

I’m sorry, or rather no, I’m not sorry. Those studies are just plain wrong. Sure I’ve gotten depressed here and there. Like who hasn’t, or doesn’t? But for as much chocolate as I’ve eaten, by the sounds of chocolate associating with depression, I should be the walking, mumbling manual of depression.

Of course I had to do more digging after reading this, which let me jump in here and add, it made me quite depressed…until I came upon more favorable research to my liking. There is this other thing ‘supposedly’ associated with eating chocolate that surprised me a lot. Quite a whole lot. Like WHEW… wiped sweat right off my brow.

But seriously, check out some of what’s been recently written about chocolate. I had no idea. Until I went back a little further checking. It’s been reported that research on chocolate is conflicting. HERE, HERE, and HERE. Otherwise I was about to say, “maybe I should go chocolate flavor anonymous.”

Genuine Women Rock!

Funny thing about genuine women is they rarely say much when first meeting one. Oh, she’ll look me up and down, sizing me up I’m guessing, taking in most of what she thinks she sees before ever imparting any real piece of her mind. Gossip is just not her thing; mines neither, which is why when she unleashes one of them pearls of wisdom, Baby Look Out, I know this is a Woman Who Rocks!
Genuine Women are as Compassionate as Passionate

Doesn’t mean she won’t make mistakes, do wrong, be wrong, get mad and have those bad days. We all have our hard days, ugly ways. Name a human who doesn't. And still, turning the dial back upbeat, I know one-hundred-ten percent a genuine woman’s words are not cheap.

A Toast to the Writing Resolution Blog Hop Ball

I've been waiting to attend this ball all year, and now here it is…the perfect spot to slip in another Top Ten list, and call it my writing resolutions.
Before …oh boy…I get started, please know that Meg Waite-Clayton at 1stbooks is hosting the blogger ball. All the rules can be found (and followed) by clicking the icon pic in my caption, which also should be your caption as well. But before you get to clicking, here are my writing resolutions going into the New Year.

SHEWRITES Blogger's Ball #7 – YipYip HOORaY!!!

I think Meg Waite Clayton, who takes time out of her very literate busy schedule to host this ball, must really see me over here toggling this and that. Seems like it never fails, just when I'm about to drop a ball, up pops Meg hosting a ball. Of course, and please know, I don't really believe this. I already know the blogger balls come highly requested by SHEWRITERS, but can't deny that I, too, love the timing of each one thrown.
With over $#!$# projects going, not inclusive of other dependabilities begging my attention, I tried to avoid putting up the old 'Away on Vacation' notice. And rather than explain any more of that here, let me jump right into blasting this small pep of encouragement for those steeped in the writing process, and to writers everywhere.
If you're starting to hear a little whining about the time you spend writing, and blogging, to this is what I have to say. "Write on Writers." To my family, and perhaps to those who've been…
