Someone's gotta do it

   Today, I'm a judge for the chocolate contest at the annual "Chocolate and tea at three" event, a fundraiser for our local homeless shelter. I accepted the invitation a few weeks ago, and considered begging out after the "pink slip incident," but the organizer of the event said she still wanted me and I thought, "What the heck!? It may be momentarily awkward, but it's for a good cause. And - duh - it's chocolate!!"
   The question is: How does one prepare her palate for an onslaught of cacao?

Red wine?

One person will not matter to them, but I've cancelled my subscription to the LJW. I was often annoyed by the paper before, but now they've removed the only things I really liked about it. I have always been a strong advocate of small, locally owned newspapers, but at this point, I wish they'd just sell the damn thing to some chain and end the paper's slow, painful death.

ronnie, what a great idea that would have been!

Anon, thanks very much for leaving the comment. I have mixed feelings about what you said, of course, but share your sentiments about small, locally owned papers.
