The hundred-and-forty-fifth day...Who likes chocolate? I do, I do!

Monday, August 17, 2009
Today was a good day. Not only did I get to leave on time - well sort of - but the team from one of my projects sent me chocolates as a 'Thank You' for all the work that I did on their project :) How sweet is that? It's nice to feel appreciated and recognized every now and then. As it was, I was completely surprised - and I mean completely caught off guard surprised.

I was out of the office on Friday, so when I arrived at work today, the cardboard box that the chocolates were shipped in was sitting on the floor in front of my chair. When I picked it up it was very heavy and I immediately tried to guess what was inside. I didn't order anything. The box was too big for any paperwork that I was expecting. I was stirring myself up so much; but I managed to reign in my train of thought before my mind started wandering too much into holy-crap-someone-just-sent-me-something-horrible territory.

I grabbed my scissors, tore into the box and pulled out...Styrofoam and an icepack. What the?! I refused to overreact and kept hauling stuff out of the box until I reached the good stuff - a box of Jacques Torres Chocolates. Yum...yum...yum!

Did I already say "Yum...yum...yum"?

For any one who is interested, the legend for all the flavors in the box I received can be found here. I've only tasted a couple of them, but everyone seemed to like them - yes, I did put the box out to share with the whole office. Why not? It was a nice thing to do (sharing is caring, right) and it helped prevent me from scarfing down the whole delicious box. A whole tray was left, so I brought that home for my family to share. Of course my mom and sisters all went to the dentist today so they can't actually eat any of them, but they'll still be in the fridge tomorrow...maybe :)

How did the day go for all of you?

I think I'm going to eat 1 more chocolate - maybe a Ginger? Haha, or maybe I'll just go to sleep :)

Have a great night everyone!



Jealous! I loveeeee chocolate!

Hey Jeanette :) Me too, which was why I had to share it. I would have eaten the entire box in a hot second if I had left it in my office :)

Have a great night!


Its always nice when people show appreciation for the work you do. Fancy chocolates, very nice. But, I don't think I'd be able to share...hehe :)

Hey Maisy :) It is nice every once in a while.

Haha, I won't lie - it was hard, but it had to be done :)

Have a wonderful day!

Hey Badass :) I send you virtual chocolate. I gotta tell you though, it's not as great as real chocolate, but the intention is there. I hope your day picked up a bit :)

Have a great night!
