Purchased from: vending machine at work

Today I was back in my cubicle at work, playing catch-up from my trip. I didn't have time for lunch, so I hit the vending machines. After wandering around to different break-room areas, I found a machine that had something sort of healthy, that had chocolate in it.

Bingo. I go for it. It's Kar's Sweet and Salty Mix (from Kar Nut Products Co.) - a kind of trail mix with chocolate chip/candy-like pieces. Hey, it's great if you're hungry, and it beat most of the alternatives suspended by little roundish wires next to it in the machine.

Note to self: While the world is filled with easy to obtain chocolates now, a few days into this year-long chocolate bet, I suspect at some point I'll need to buy a few days worth of chocolate in advance to carry with me to work, to ensure I can have new types at my fingertips when it's busy at work, like today.

I talked to my good friend, who shares a birthday in September. I tell her about the chocolate bet, and ask her if she wanted in on some birthday and/or chocolate adventures this month. Her reaction was something like "...Are you crazy. A chocolate bet? What do you want to do, gain 10 pounds?" She laughed. But, she's up for some birthday, cocoa-bean related adventures. Bless her for that. (I secretly hope that I don't gain 10 pounds -- but I might be willing to accept a 4-5 pounds for the sake of my year-long cocoa quest.)
