with apologies to dairy


what can I say?... I like Joe (in spite of everything)... now you may or may not agree ot understand and neither may he, or I, for that matter, but with only four entries to go on, I smile and sit comfortable back wondering, with a smile and hopeful anticipation, what might come next... no pressure, just a happy and somewhat vocal audience of one...

once again the keyboard finds me in a strange mood... it could be the box of Swiss Rolls I consumed today... I know, the sugar, fat, and caloric intake was quite obscene... but then, what fun is life without a little obscenity now and then... or a lot, for that matter...

heck, I only had a little Dew today...

meanwhile, I see something brilliant in some of these answers... and he apparently has a thing for cheese... I like cheese too... in fact, I love cheese... all sorts of cheese, but I wouldn't go writing an ode to cheese... or any dairy product, for that matter... at least not today... that would be quite ridiculous... thought I may have written one at some point in my sordid past, I've conveniently forgotten if that ever happened and while I would not deny it most vehemently, I might, in certain circumstances, suggest that it never happened, if it ever did... far ahead of cheese, however, though not completely out of reach, is chocolate... for chocolate I would sing the song of sixpence and any other melodious sound or even an ode...


few things in this world are obsessions for me
the gift of sunlight or the shade of a tree
a child's wide eyed wonder of passion's embrace
the heart of a song or the dreams that I chase

but one thing rises above all
just one thing can get me like that
for one thing I would rise or fall
that's love, and that is a fact
as they said once, love is where it's at

but one thing is the next best thing
a substance of sugar and fat
it's cocoa who's praises I sing
it's love, but let me be exact
this is an Ode to Chocolate

the sweet creamy texture that melts in the mouth
that surrounds every taste bud on the tongue
until each one achieves an oral orgasm
and the mind can feel forever young

some may say it's the drugs
but it feels like a hug
every time a morsel meets my mouth

don't laugh at, laugh with me my friends
for you know in the end
you know what I'm talking about

few things in this world make a man feel a king
or a woman a queen on her very own throne
feel the child's wide eyed wonder inside every time
you share chocolate with friends or even all alone

one thing in this world rises above all
just one thing can get me like that
for one thing I would rise or fall
that's love, and that is a fact
I'll say again, love is where it's at

but one thing is the next best thing
a substance of sugar and fat
and cocoa, sweet taste, who's praises I sing
it's love, but let me be exact
this is an Ode to Chocolate


left unchecked, one's obsessions could become a form of madness, however as Monty Python taught us well (and of course they were not the first, nor were the Marx Brothers, for that matter), singing usually helps...

and ok, so I may be a bit stranger than someone you'd invite to dinner with your parents, but keep in mind that I'd likely bring chocolate and you might change your mind...

now of course it might be more amusing to ramble on about cheese than about chocolate if only because the semantic sound of the word cheese seems more amusing most times... perhaps the connotations of the meanings may also play a role as in cutting the cheese or that was cheesey or smells like cheese or other such idiomatic phrases... idiomatic is another amusing word perhaps because of it's close proximity to idiot, but that has little or nothing to do with cheese... or chocolate, for that matter... the point is though cheese may be more amusing to ramble on about than chocolate (I mean, photographers do not go around asking their subjects to say chocolate, not do they?), I would never knowingly write an Ode to Cheese, so don't worry...

I suppose I should apologize to dairy products, however, since milk chocolate is made of milk and that happens to be my favoritest kind of chocolate... so perhaps writing an ode to a dairy product would not be so strange after all... but not cheese... at least not today...

so I apologize to all dairy products, including cheese, and the cows they rode in on... I apologize sincerely and profusely, with no mockery or foresight intended... I even apologize for all the people who spell dairy diary and diary dairy here at diaryland and anywhere words may be used... I apologize truly and deeply, now and forever more... yes, I apologize...

but I am not sorry...

and an almost completely unrelated segue, except that I am following links from a certain site, then I left this comment (my comment would be under the user name candor, since that is one of my names over at LJ... scroll down and you'll find it)... of better yet, here it is (but do go look at the entry in this journal that inspired it):

maybe it's just my giddy mood and the chocolate and Mountain Dew talking, but I read sheer brilliance in this entry... yes, we all know that a light bulb can be brilliant too and that doesn't mean it means anything, but it can be much more fun to think it does and agree with others who do too... maybe that's what religion is all about in the first place, but that's not what I came here to reflect upon... the positive affirmation of a bobblehead, not that is pure genius J


and dang if dangerspouse didn't remind me of my infamous year of professional snow-blowing in Buffalo, NY (during which I personally removed the 65 inches of snow that fell in a two week period from the Dow and Dupont chemical plant just around the corner from the Love Canal and learned that I could work a 140 hour week and somehow survive)... and then I stumbled upon these guys who apparently are attached to this guy who is worth revisiting and between the two of them (I meant between danger and judd, not between judd's guys... I'm definitely not looking to get between judd's guys), it got me to thinking it may be time to remember how many diaries I love that are not listed on my favorites lists in my profiles...

but this might be enough babble for one entry so I'll upload it and start the next one... and here we are... share yourself, for if you don't, you'll never know...
