Note to self: Chocolate cake and black coffee do NOT make a good breakfast for those of a certain age.
Seems that I'm suffering from a bit of a hangover this morning. No, not from alcohol...I had only one chocolate stout last night. This hangover is from overindulgence in chocolate and coffee. You see, yesterday was my 50th birthday and since it is a well-known fact that I am a chocoholic and coffee addict, I received an abundance of both vices.
Many thanks to Treebeard for the birthday cake he made me. He calculated the number of seconds I had lived as of 1:11 pm (the time I was born) yesterday and recorded the number on the cake. Such a sweetie ;)
Many thanks to the folks at work for their contributions as well. Coffee beans, mocha chocolate squares, and an assortment of chocolate cake squares. I saved the sign that greeted me from my office door yesterday morning: "An Old Toad Works Here" I like that - I stuck it to the wall beside the window in front of my desk.
Now I must recover from the love and hide the rest of the cake...
