I have a bag of ghirardelli dark chocolate squares at my desk. whose genius idea was it to package these and then give out buy one get one free coupons so that naive consumers such as myself take it upon themselves to get two bags and then unwittingly keep them within arm's reach on their desks at work? and by 'keep' I mean 'eat'. and by 'eat' I mean 'eat them all'. this, of course, means I need to knit really fast tonight to burn off these extra calories.
and I wonder if this 'daily allowance of saturated fat' they list on the package means just my chocolate allowance or all the food I consume in a day... and who decided how much fat I'm allowed? and how do they decide how big a serving is? shouldn't I get to decide these things for myself? isn't this america??
the good news.
on a slightly unrelated note, pistachios are tasty.
