    Having the yellow fever I do not go for blondes much but I would smash Avril as she reminds me of a certain strain of skanky French Canadian blondes that I had some rather intimate contact with as a yoot.

    what is the point of Russel Stover candy boxes? The only thing that happens with them is people are giften them at Christmas by old people, and then they bring them to work and leave them in the pantry while thinking "the secretaries enjoy eating junk like this, they can have it."

    Some people probably don't know of anything better than Godiva and that is baller candy.

    I sent my GreenFrog's mother a shit load of Jaques Torres chocolate this year. She loved them.

    Not the punks, they see through all of the bullshit of society and they stand alone! They are not blinded and corrupted by capitalism!

    I bought myself a ton of Amadei chocolates online once. My mother had been visiting and when I got home I got a text from her at the airport saying thank you for the goodbye chocolates. They were all gone. She later sent me a text saying it just tasted like regular chocolate. :fu:

    I like chocolate, but I never go out of my way for it. I'm not all that excited about it, but if I were I would know more than Duane Reade grade treats.

    Eataly has an excellent selection of chocolates. Last time I went there was Amadei and domori. Also mast brothers quality has improved a lot these past few years. If you see any patric chocolates I would buy those. Hard to come by but really intense jammy flavors.

    Their hot chocolate is great but they're a couverture company. I understand that they source from felchlin and vahlrona which are both great companies but the bars aren't the best you can get. Their Bon bons and stuff are really high quality however. They have a really unique practice of sourcing some of their own beans and sending them off to felchlin to make their couverture. I heard the head guy used to work for Bouley or something.

    Their promo video is pretty lulzy

    I am sure it works (a surrogate for a parent yelling at you to stand up straight when you were a kid), and combining it with a fitbit type system is nice...but the fact that they far exceeded their crowd-sourcing goal in 4 days is pretty funny.

    Fireworks shows, after you've seen one, do you ever go out of your way to see another? Is anything really going to blow your yamaka off? I know some simplefolk that drop a couple grand every July on explosives, meh. Light a few bottle rockets and I'm content.

    I don't understand the hype, the money spent and the law broken to acquire and set off fireworks. My father is one of these people who engages in these insanely complicated shady, expensive deals to acquire some loud explosions. (They are illegal in NJ where he lives).

    Driving to Pennsylvania is a complicated and shady deal?

    this. easy. when i was in college, my brother and I drove from the Finger Lakes to the Gibson stop on I-81 in Pennsylvania and filled the entire trunk of his Honda Accord with fireworks to bring back to NY. Some were epic.

    In one of those strange wrinkles of conflicting state laws, larger fireworks are illegal to possess in Maryland. In Pennsylvania, they are legal to sell, but not to PA residents. So there are a cluster of these stores right on the border where PA stores sell to MD residents only who then bring them back across the state line. I am told there are state troopers who lay in wait just over the border looking for an excuse to pull someone over and justify a search, but I am not sure if that is true (or practical, or fully legal).

    My Dad goes nuts with the things. I have no problem with it; I quite enjoy them. He puts on monster shows at least 3-4 times a year, and we fire off a handful randomly at other times throughout the year; we launched a good one last weekend in honor of my brother's birthday.

    The only thing that concerns me is safety. We had one fall over a couple of years ago, and by luck (and I guess probability) the thing fell over in a direction where the roman candles were going off to the left (still towards us, but far enough to the side that nobody was in danger). When this is happening there are typically 50-150 people there, so there could have been serious injuries. Since then, I have served as the safety inspector, making sure all the major artillery goes off behind stone walls where, should something tip, it could not shoot towards the crowd.
