Vote Here

I did not vote yesterday. How horrible is that? I ALWAYS vote and ALWAYS yell at everyone else to vote so shame on me. Maybe I would have voted had my child not split his head open? I used to harp on people who gave me excuses like that. So today I am going to redeem myself by hosting an election regarding chocolate.

I am trying to branch out and add more dark chocolate into my chocolate habit. It has been hard since I want to chase the dark chocolate with some milk chocolate to give me that oh, so happy feeling I get from my addiction.

Don't forget to vote. I won't accept lame excuses like medical emergencies either!

MILK ALL THE WAY!

Depends on the mood. If I could only have one though I'd go milk.

I have non-voting guilt, too :( I think if you've been to the hospital/urgent care within a week of election day there's an exemption. Oh well. Cacao-vote 2010 is easy, though - Dark all the way!(everyday:) Around 70% is my ideal mood adjuster.

dark every time, without exception. could mimic my preference in men? heh.

I only voted because Jinnah took my ballot to the place for me.

Dark. I didn't vote in the primaries either for the first time in YEARS :(. If Dark wins does it get to run off against a different dessert/candy all together in a few months? Like dark chocolate vs. butterscotch?

Milk chocolate FTW. Why bother to vote; politicians seem all the same to me.
