ChocolateBet: December 18, 2006

Because my mom is in the hospital and is very ill, most of my family is not really thinking about making holiday plans this year. This is, in an odd sort of way, a benefit. Not that we'd really be able to fully enjoy big lavish meals or gift-giving...No, in some ways the relief comes as if I've been given a pass on not having to "do the holidays" this year.

When I was traveling in Shanghai and Tokyo for business earlier this month, one of the things I was struck by was all the Christmas decorations everywhere - in stores, in restaurants, on buildings and billboards. "Meery (sic) Christmas" one large banner read. There were holiday carols/songs coming out of loudspeakers in different languages. It was a big surprising and surreal, but fun. So, maybe I did absorb my "holidays" earlier in the month.

Today's chocolate was Bija dark chocolate-covered Omega Truffles (Omega 3-6-9 blend). They were good. While I feel powerless to really help my mom at this point, I am eating healthy on her behalf perhaps.
