I love paper. Books printed on acid-free paper and bound in cloth turn me on. I'm crazy about bookmarks, and I buy too many stickers. I could spend hours in the build-your-own-greeting card section of my neighborhood craft store. My favorite thing to eat is bread, and my second favorite is fruit. (Mm, pineapple.) I read too much and too fast, and I watch too many food shows (two ways of looking at gluttony). Gloomy, rainy weather calms me and so I can't wait to move out of California, which will happen, sadly, too many years from now to count. I'm vegan, though I haven't managed to eliminate honey from my diet yet. I practice yoga; it's the only way I can keep fit. I have a better life than I ever imagined I would (or deserve to) have, but I do my best to enjoy it rather than feel guilty about it. That's my daily struggle -- and also to be thoughtful and observant and honest with myself.

Giant Chocolate Bunny

I know this is silly, and extravagant, and frivolous. But here it is: the largest chocolate bunny I have ever seen: five pounds of glossy gorgeous deliciousness. This Sunday was the Orthodox Easter, and I bought the bunny as an Easter gift for Husband. He has a terrible sweet tooth and complained one day about how small the chocolate Easter bunnies at the grocery store were (and hollow on the inside, to boot). So I started looking for the hugest chocolate rabbit that was for sale out there in this strange wide world. I found it at the Ultimate Candy Co. It's solid dark chocolate and gives off a heady smell. It's already missing a bit of its ear because Husband had just bit into it before I took the picture. It's now sitting, completely earless, on a shelf in the kitchen. I can't help smiling like a fool every time I look at it.

cute -- earless, he probably looks more like a chipmunk. :)
