Deep Thoughts

People are hypocrits. Why do folks say "Hi, how are you?" when they really don't give a shit how you are....cause I feel like crap today (coughing, sore throat, general ugh) but ghod forbid I actually say anything like that....people are asking that question as they are walking past you...they don't really want a response.

(Okay, this was more of a mini-rant than just a Deep Thought. But it feels good to get it off my congested chest)

How hard is it to just say "Good morning" or "Good afternoon" or "Good evening" instead? Easy, I do that all the time.

Also, if you aren't going to come to a lecture, stop gushing over the topic when the flyer is being posted. From all the reaction the announcement I got about "For the Love of Chocolate" you'd think there would be 30 people coming to the talk. I had 4 the first session and 3 at the second. I hate hypocrits.


  1. aww, i'm sorry kona! are you feeling any better?

    and that sucks about people not showing for your lecture. :( maybe one day you can give us the lecture on "for the love of chocolate." the title sounds like it'd be great :)
    (i judge books by their covers alone. ;))

  2. It's a great briefing. About 20 minutes about the history of chocolate, the definitions of the different types of chocolate, nutrition information, and then the myths & truths about chocolate and various health issues. At the end, I take the group through a sensory of chocolate experience (how to really enjoy good chocolate and why it's all about the smell, not the taste).
