Fabulous Friday: Dark Chocolate

Posted by: Maggie

I picked up a bar of this amazing organic dark chocolate at Trader Joe’s the other day (this, by the way, is why I don’t do the grocery shopping! I have no self-control! I come home with chocolate and ice cream, whereas Josh just sticks to the shopping list!). It’s some of the best dark chocolate I’ve ever had!

I love a super, super dark chocolate! It goes perfect with a cup of hot black coffee in the morning, or delicious vanilla iced coffee in the afternoon!

I finished this bar last week! Who’s going to go get me some more?

Happy Friday friends!

Josh’s 30 days till 30

Posted by: Josh

Whilst reading Maggie’s post about 30 things she wants to do before she turns 30, I noticed that I was in fact not much more than 30 DAYS away from being thirty. And that I had not done anything on my own list of things to do by the time I’m thirty.

As such, I’ve made some quick revisions to my list to bring me a little more in line with my goals (note: original list written at age 16).

  1. Learn to play guitar Acquire brother-in-law who plays guitar
  2. Write a book Marry someone who plans to write a book
  3. Write a movie script Spend 15 years thinking about writing a movie script
  4. Get into UCLA film school Often buy snacks from the vending machine outside UCLA film school
  5. Write a comic book Become estranged from friend I heard wrote a comic book
  6. Work in television Work at Starbucks making coffee for assholes who work in television
  7. Befriend awesome intelligent artistic people at college Graduate college a year early cause “I’m so sick of this shit”
  8. Get rich Get paid enough to really appreciate the idea of getting rich
  9. Leave SCV, become a recluse, spend all time engaged in artistic endeavors Settle down in SCV, get married, spend 45 mins. a week engaged in artistic endeavors
  10. Live in Spain Make flight arrangements for someone who frequently visits Spain
  11. Learn to speak Spanish Have child who watches a lot of Dora the Explorer

And there you go. Through the power of creative editing, I win at life. Top that, wife!
