Peep peep

This week is proving to be a wacky one. But there has been home made baked beans, a beer festival*, a lovely blogger gathering and my brand new British citizenship so aside from wanting to hurl my computer out the window, all is well. I should get back to editing my nose-blowing out of the podcast, so… what's shaking with you? If you were a chocolate bar which one would be? Or similar comment-provoking question to feebly make up for the blogging silence πŸ™‚

* the beer ran out at 9PM. The organisers had to run to the supermarket for more. For shame!

  1. If I were a chocolate bar I’d be a Chocolove dark chocolate with raspberries. The raspberries are freeze-dried…very different. If you want one, let me know!

  2. c’mon beer festival, don’t let me down – I love a beer festival…

    Can money buy happiness ? I firmly rebuff that comment…however just lately I would love a new car – with all the bells and whistles, a big one so the kids can sit way at the far end, well apart from each other. A fast one, so those punks on the road no longer see me just as a (young πŸ˜‰ ) mother of two. A fuel efficient, environmentally friendly, white one… and probably a Lexus πŸ™‚

    Does money make you happy – No way..but its nice to dream…

  3. If I were a chocolate bar I would simply be a Hershey’s Dark Chocolate, but one of the mini ones that we give out on Halloween. Good things in a small package!

  4. If I were a chocolate bar, I’d be a Coffee Crisp. I have no good reason, it’s just simply my favourite chocolate bar (well, barring the occasional illicit fling with my other love, Bueno, but let’s not go there!). Crunchy! Wafer-y! Yum.

  5. Oh Lora I LOVE chocolate with those weirdy raspberries! There’s a brand here called Divine that does it… very sophisticated isn’t it? Or just plain tasty πŸ™‚

    j – you could save the auto industry with a car like that! separate pens for your children!

  6. OMG in Australia there’d be a riot if the beer ran out so early!
    I’d be old gold (dark chocoalte, rum and raisin)
    Now I want baked beans for lunch!

  7. If I could be any chocolate bar, I would totally be the Endangered Species Chimpanzee Bar… because it is the best. dark. chocolate. ever.

  8. I lurve home-made baked beans. I put my favourite recipe for them somewhere on the sana site (don’t want to appear to be pimping my site by linking to it). I think the basics are the same except mine had SMOKED paprika and yellow mustard in it and absolutely rocked. Unfortunately I’m currently off tomatoes on account of my nightshade-free diet for arthritis. I miss them.

  9. I’m doing a craptacular job with updates, too. Wish I’d thought to make up some imaginary children to blame it on …

    If I were a chocolate bar, I’d be a Butterfinger. Before Jeff and I got married, I dropped the leftover cake at two of our bridal showers. Because one just wasn’t enough. Arrrgh!

  10. Dropping out of lurkdom here, good question.My first thought was a Chunkey..thick, kind of a big bite of chocolate with rasins and nut crunchiness. Then thoughts of Reeses cups come to mine, oohhhh, ummm, yumm…had a reeses cup last week..since then choco free..Gonna have to go see a movie this weekend and do the combined chocolate with popcorn thing.
    I live in atlanta, so hopefully these treats are available in Scotland too.

  11. Only in Scotland would they run out of Beer at an Oktoberfest celebration!
    Bet there were more than a few things said!

  12. Congrats on the citizenship! Good grief! on the beer festival. And know exactly how you feel on the work front.
    If I were a bar of chocolate I’d be one that had melted down already then solidified into a weird shape afterwards. One of those months…

  13. Oh Wendy… that’s a brilliant description. Let’s hope November is a goodun!

    Sara – I don’t mind if you pimp your recipe!!! It sounds tasty. The warning is meant just for the evil spamlords who PRETEND to be a reader then sneak in a link to their crappy product πŸ™‚

  14. Congrats on getting that final stamp of approval from the UK bureaucracy! πŸ™‚

    If I were a chocolate bar, it would be Prince Polo. I’ll leave you to figure that one out.

  15. If I were a chocolate I would be a Freddo πŸ™‚

    Well done on the citizenship and welcome to breezing through immigration. Come visit Amsterdam!

  16. Id be a payday.
    do you have those there?
    or a snickers.
    or ANYTHING chock full o’nuts πŸ™‚

    it’s been one of those weeks.

  17. Mmmmm – chocolate – the one thing I can taste during my current cold! I’d like to think I’m a CurlyWurly – tall and slender and …. oh who am I kidding??? lol However, tasty and a little bit healthier … maybe I could just about pretend to be that! lol

  18. That is funny about the beer festival. That is an odd happening!
    Chocolate bar….
    A Willy Wonka bar of course! Who wouldn’t want to be wrapped in a golden ticket? πŸ˜‰

  19. Hmmm…chocolate…

    Either a Reese’s peanut butter cup, a toblerone, or a york peppermint patty.

    Have a fun/crazy week! =)

  20. I’d be a Topic Bar…and, since they are not found in the States, I’d be *forced* to move to the UK. I’d make the sacrifice.

  21. M&M’s (my addiction)
    Small yet colorful you pop a couple into your mouth and you taste the melty creamy chocolate. They don’t provoke the guilt that comes along with a candy bar.

    Any milk chocolate will do for me. I rediscovered how tasty Tootsie Rolls are this Halloween.
