    That is honestly the first time I’ve seen a wolf on chocolate packaging! 😛 Haha wolf jerky chocolate-hmmm genius or crazy or a bit of both? 😀

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog!! 🙂 I’m oh so sorry to have tempted you with smoked cheese – I promise no smoked cheese in my next post! *repentant sheepish expression* 🙂

    Oh dear, you poor thing, no functioning oven and a need for a mosquito net? I’m so sorry… The house-sitting gig sounds rather scary… I’m so impressed with your positive attitude! I love endangered species chocolate – have you tried the 88% cacao one? My all-time fav! 🙂 I’m now quite eager to try this one as well…

    I’m so glad you wrote about the additional blogger-personality situation – I do the same thing throughout the day! I’m so comforted to know I’m not the only one… 🙂

    Hannah, it was not a story that came to mind. No, no, you have put a song into my head. Hungry Like the Wolf. Yes. Dammit.

    I know what you mean about the self censorship, though I have to say your writings feel very candid. I’m generally not left trying desperately to read between the lines, though right now I’m pretty keen to hear the horrors of this interesting place you’re staying in…

    oh – dark chocolate, walnuts and cranberries sounds like the perfect combo!

  8. whisperinggums

    Yum Yum balls? Tell me anothery! I have no recollection of such things crossing our lintel…

  9. OohLookBel

    Ooh, that is a creepy picture on the chocolate pack! Just as well the product inside is not as scary.

  10. Johanna GGG

    yum yum balls – maybe if sylvia doesn’t eat up her weetbix I can make some of these!

    wolves – I think of that music for peter and the wolf

    and blogging taking over how I react to life – oh yes and it drives me crazy that I don’t have enough time to post all the ideas that spring up in a day!

    I could cope with mosquitos – there is repellent for that – but no internet sounds horrid – this too shall pass

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog! You made my day! 🙂 Apologies for tempting you with the smoked cheese… *sheepish expression* 🙂

    No oven and a need for a mosquito net? Oh dear, your house-sitting house sounds scary! I hope your time there zooms by quickly, at least! I’m very impressed with your positive attitude!

    Chocolate does make everything better… 🙂 Endangered Species chocolate is one of my favorite brands! I haven’t tried this one yet – it looks gorgeous! 🙂 Hmmm, when I think of wolves I think of Dances with Wolves, the Kevin Costner movie… Slightly embarrassing. 🙂

    Wow! I’d love to try the chocolate bar. At least, the packet is beautiful!

    At the most recent Wildlife Photography competition, hosted by someone in the UK but then toured to the Australian museum, the winning photo was a wolf jumping over a paddock fence. It was a really beautiful photo, but the ‘experts’, after a few months, determined it to be staged. Wild wolves would crawl under the fence, rather than jumping over, they said. And then someone recognised the wolf as Tommy, a performing wolf from some kind of zoo/circus/animal thingie. So the winning photo was dethroned, and when Andy and I made it to the Australian Museum in Sydney it had been taken off the wall.

    That’s my wolf story. Mozzie nets sell at anaconda or other outdoorsy stores for about $20, and I recommend finding a place that sells essential oils and getting some neem oil. A dab on each ankle should keep the mozzies away from you pretty well. Are you at least being paid to house sit? Perhaps you should demand more.

  14. Vaala

    Oh no! Your house sitting experience sounds like it might be pretty bad. Well, at least you have chocolate…and peanut butter. Life is pretty much complete as long as you have those 🙂

    Om nom nom! Lincoln can eat this one while wearing his wolf t-shirt, resting on his wolf pillow, and gazing at his wolf statue. (I think he had a birthday cake once, too.)

    That nagging blog voice — I have that for cameras. Sometimes I feel as though I can’t relax and fully experience a place because I’m too busy taking a picture of it. And then events without pictures feel as though they never happened.

    But at the same time, picture-taking is so active, and encourages you to experience places you might not have, and later you can remember it all and share it with friends. I imagine that blogging is similar.

    Lorraine: Well, I’ve had bacon chocolate… jerky chocolate can’t be far off! 😛

    Conor: Hmm, should I be trying to create more of an allure of mystery? Maybe one day we can meet up in person and I’ll tell you all about it!

    Simply Life: That does sound good – but these were almonds, not walnuts! 😛

    Whisperinggums: What’s that they say about senility?

    OohLookBel: Aww, that wolf just wants a hug! 😀

    Johanna: And now I’m thinking of a concert of Peter and the Wolf I went to at the Botanic Gardens! Let me know if Sylvia does like Yum Yum balls! And the internet thing is tricky… right now I’m back home for a few hours, as mum thought I needed a cheer-up after my latest doctor-toe appointment…

    Talita: I hope you can find it somewhere! I like the espresso and nib ones better though 🙂

    Theresa: Hahaha! That story just made my day. And nope, not getting paid to housesit… in fact, it looks like I’m expected to pay for the electricity!

    Vaala: That’s what I’m telling myself every single morning when I wake up and don’t want to get out of bed 😛 Plus, it’s only about 34 more nights…

    Lauren: Should I post the photo of Lincoln gleeful over the wolf-shirt-in-a-box we found in Asheville? And I completely understand your feelings about the camera – for me, partly it’s about fearing I won’t remember enough of my experiences without some form of documentation.

  17. Hannah

    Astra Libris (x2 :P): I forgive you the smoked cheese temptation – I’ve stocked up on bleu to comfort myself! I’ve actually reviewed the Endangered 88% on my blog before – I liked it far more than this one. I’ve never seen Dances with Wolves… should I? And having messages like yours to look forward to in my brief-internetting hours will, I’m sure, make the house-sitting month go by more quickly 🙂

    1. I totally want to know your unpublishable blogthoughts. Which brings me a question I’ve been meaning to ask, yet for some reason still cringe at: Do you have a Facebook? (I have a love-hate relationship with it, I suppose.)

    2. Ahh, you read the entire Little House on the Prairie series too?!! Love that!

    3. How funny, I bought Matt a bar of the Endangered Species mocha/espresso bean chocolate for his birthday earlier this month, and just last night did we finally open it and try it. It was alright, though it didn’t “melt in my mouth” like it seems chocolate should.

  19. Hannah

    Amber: 1. I’ve gotta keep some allure of mystery around me, right? I do indeedy have facebook! Funnily enough, I’d been thinking of asking you that too 🙂

    2. So very, very many times. When I was very little I liked the earlier books best, then by early-teens I was big into The Long Winter and These Happy Golden Years. My dream is to one day boil maple syrup, yell “It’s graining!”, and pour it onto fresh snow.

    3. I think we’re blog-soulmates. I agree, Endangered Species lacks a silky melt – it’s quite resistant and I usually find myself chomping. Michel Cluizel’s Noir Au Cafe is far superior 😀

  20. Two Enquiring Minds Want To Know: Seven Facts About Me - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] It was actually a bit tricky to think of these. As Conor once noted, I seem to be pretty candid on this blog, so writing facts like “I enjoy chocolate” or […]
