Hot chocolate, games and puns.

Special mention to Beth over at Shades of Bliss for finding 3BT in a bad experience.

1. I am working from home so I get to have hot chocolate (yes, the special hot chocolate) for my elevensies, and it is good. It foams up as good cocoa should; it is just the right sort of creaminess; and it has all the bitter notes that I like.

2. It's half term so the park is full of children.

3. Getting puns in a book, because it makes me feel like I am in a secret gang with the writer and their cleverer readers. I also like that feeling that there might be pun that I'm not seeing, because I anticipate the moment when all becomes clear. I am reading Something Rotten by Jasper Fforde.

  1. Been digging your blog since I saw it as a Blog of Note. It's now suitably bookmarked and used to cheer me up after long days.

    Just wanted to let you know that the link to Shades of Bliss has an errant fullstop at the end of the link which makes it a '404'. Removing the fullstop after html will do the trick.

  2. i am curious about what kind of hot chocolate it is and if i can order it online.... (hey, you might boost their sales considerably what with your increased readership!)

  3. Christine -- it's special Sri Lanken hot chocolate that came in an unmarked package, I'm afraid.

    SMP -- thanks for pointing that out -- I've corrected it now.

  4. It's funny -- I was noticing yesterday how quiet and peaceful the park I walk my dog to is with school in session, and I thought THAT was a beautiful thing!

  6. 3BTs have helped me so much! I know everyone is saying that - I write them in my journal. Lately, life has been what usually tosses me in the shredder for weeks. But I find once I write my 3BTs for the day - I can sleep and look forward to the next day - it even feels like the bad stuff barely happened. Life is good. And it only gets better when you focus on looking for the 3BTs each day.

    Okay. End of testimonial. Just wanted to say thanks for your spot of sunshine every day.

  8. Yum! I love hot chocolate, especially when it's the right sort of creaminess.

    I also love me a good book.

  9. Like "glo", when I look for something good every day, it makes life a much more cheerful place. I find myself laughing more. This is great medicine for the soul. Thanks so much.

    BTW, I love playing with words. I should go and see if I can buy the book, "Something Rotten."

  12. I am currently reading Something Rotten also. I am thoroughly enjoying it. I have read The Well of Lost Plots, and I also plan to read anything else that I can find by Jasper Fforde. They are highly amusing books thats for sure. And well written to boot.
