    I’ve never heard of grilled almonds!…I’m intrigued!…

    SeaChange? Oh my god I loved that show. I was so in love with Diver Dan it just wasn’t funny!

      I’ll fight you for him – to the death if need be. (Even though I definitely don’t believe in the death penalty, there are exceptions!)

    ROFL wasn’t the gay dolphin line just perfectly delivered! In fact I thought that that episode was so quotable. Can’t wait for the Madonna episode (although I admit I sneaked a look at Vogue and Like a Virgin on youtube 😛 )

    every time i eat this chocolate (okay…which has been…twice..probably), i get this overwhelming urge to barbecue almonds.

    grilled almonds in chocolate – yum. I’ll eat either on their own and both together.

    Simply Life: I’d say they’d be pretty similar to roasted almonds?

    Vaala: 😀 I always thought of myself as a die-hard Max fan, but a few years ago Mum and I watched the whole show again start-to-finish, and I re-saw that Diver Dan truly was amazing. But then again, I think I love every single character. Even Bob.

    Lorraine: I loved her little nod after saying it! I’ve been really tempted to watch the episodes over the internet, but I’m making myself wait so that I have something to look forward to during the house-sitting nights. You’re tempting me towards youtube though…

    L-Izzle: Have you found this one here? I never have… or I think I once found the milk chocolate almond one at David Jones? P.S. You’re running right now. Teehee.

    Tammy: I agree wholeheartedly 🙂

    Beautifully tenuous segue, you’d be a shoe in for a dodgy current affairs show presenter (the show is dodgy, you’re not dodgy).

    I know so many West Wing fanatics, I’m too scared to actually watch any of it as it seems to turn people into DVD watching zombies for days on end as they catch up on every single episode ever made.

    Lovely lovely photos!

    Conor: And this week, we follow the trials and tribulations of an Aussie Battler, who battles against the odds, in all his/her Aussie Battling Glory, against his unAustralian Aussie enemy, whom we’ll name and shame by shoving a microphone in his/her face.

    Um, these West Wing fanatics that you know… any of them single? 😀

    Kath: Coming from the master! Thank you 🙂

    My husband is a West Wing fanatic, and dare I say spends hours, nay days REwatching every single episode ever (it replaced the Lord of the Rings era). It is a fantastic show though. Witty dialogue. How you hope politicians are, but how you know deep down they aren’t. OTOH I must be the only person in Australia not watching Glee. Why would I when I can watch the episode of Wife Swap USA that I taped the night before?

    Louise: I think that the same way you can’t understand my chocolate+peanut butter love, I’ll have to bow out from any Wife Swap passion! But the fact that someone in your household is a WW fanatic makes everything okay 😛 I wish I had the time to rewatch it over and over, but if your husband ever wants someone to quote back and forth with, one of my friends knows pretty much everything there is to know about that show!

    You know, I am just not a sit-down-and-eat-a-bar-of-chocolate type of person (I’m more of a chop-it-or-melt-it-or-shave-it-or-grate-it-and-use-it-as-a-constituent-part-of-a-baked-good type) and yet you make me WANT to be one (a sit-down-and-eat-a-bar-of-chocolate type of person, that is. Whew).

    Amber: I’m changing the world, one chocolate-eater at a time 😛 Although a part of me would happily trade in my sit-down-chocolate-habit for your ability to imagine and create nut-butter-chocolate delights!
