A life by chocolate entails finding sweetness in the light and dark. Moreso, it's about addiction to cocoa. An insatiable sweet tooth doesn't hurt. Well, not until the yucky tartar buildup and stuff. To the point, I strive to entertain with topics such as the utter hilarity and cuteness of children; the challenges of dating, my related rationale for celibacy; and chocolate as a precious remedy for it all. Thanks for sampling Life by Chocolate. I hope you keep coming back for more.

A Record Breaking Tie at Life by Chocolate!

Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in  Life by Chocolate's history, we have a three-way tie! 

When put to the test, 14 creative minds offered 13 contributions (A Beer for the Shower = 2 men, one blog, one entry and one vote) to our Anti-Valentine's Day contest. You cast your votes. I've been calculating and re-calculating and then calculating again. It comes down to this: a run-off election is in order, but let's not belabor things. V. Day is almost over. So, having received your votes from the comments section, along with secret ballots (to my email), I can happily and officially declare a 3-way tie! And here are the winners of chocolate and my book, Just the Right Time:
   
1A and 1B, Brandon and Bryan at A Beer For the Shower for:

Dear Cupid, will you please remove this protruding arrow from my chest? I know you're just trying to help, but now the woman I'm wooing doesn't want to kiss me, she seems to think I need urgent medical attention.

  

2. Powdered Toast Man for: 
Dear Cupid, will you shoot Justin Bieber with an arrow so that it either kills him or makes him fall in love with a horny porcupine.
 
and last but never least, Yvonne, for: 
Dear Cupid, Enough already. I get it. I'm un-cupid-able. Now go away. Die a thousand deaths. But please leave some chocolate for me. Help a sista out.
Love,  -me.

Psst, girlfriend, you broke the rules (You were supposed to start with "Dear Cupid, Will you..."), but your entry oozed delicious venom, so we'll keep that secret between us. Plus, we need a female to represent single gals everywhere, and you're awesome like that.

Every entry was creative and fun. Votes were all over the place to prove it.
Kudos to BabySis, Anthony, and Adam who took a close three-way second place! To read their contributions and all the others, please visit my last post.

Thank you all for hating V-Day along with me. I love you for it. [I love you too, Anne.]

Winners, please report to the judge's booth (i.e., send me an email, Rawknrobyn@aol.com) with an address or POB - preferably yours. Thanks.

  6. Melissa, thanks for your spirit, and I'm sorry you were a tad late. I love your hateful entry, and you.

    Thanks, Alex.

    Pat, threeways never appealed to me. But this one was fun.

    Betty, thanks. Yes, it was great stuff.

    Rosalind, I made the best of a lousy "holiday" around here, in great company no less. It WAS fun.

    Anne, um, yeah, I wasn't going to mention the ouch factor on my end. But I already have the books, and I never mind spending $ on chocolate. Any excuse to buy myself some too.

  7. I was worried, a little birdie told me I came in second and I was going to demand a recount and a test for performing enhancing drugs. Glad my bribe worked.

  11. Woohoo! Thanks Robyn and whoever voted for my entry! My first threeway -woohoo! hahahaha :)

  12. PTM, hmm, I'm growing suspicious about that bribe. I believed you when you promised to send a sexy man over here last night. I'm still waiting...

    YW, it was the best thing about V-Day for me. Thank you.

    Stephen, yours included; you got a vote or two for a great entry.

    Chuck, they really were. I still very much appreciate yours and am praying for string cheese sometime in the next...century.

    Yvonne, yeah, and you're the only woman in the threesome. Enjoy it, girlfriend, for all of us!

    Thanks, Al. If I could give an award for the best comment about this Anti-V. Day Hate contest, it would go to you. Julie and I would extend congratulatory kisses on your cheeks (your facial cheeks, that is. Don't get too excited.)

    Love you all.

  14. Congrats to the winners. Glad to have come second-ish, as a threesome can get messy. Especially a moresome.

    :)

  15. We share a lot of things, but never will a threeway be one of those things.

    And now you get to enjoy the thought of us fighting to the death over our prize. We'll let you know who wins.

    PS It'll be me.

  16. Thanks, Julie, for your creative contribution. With Melissa's later vote, we actually had a foursome for second place, and you were in it! Woohoo.

    Anthony, yeah, twosomes are messy enough. I can't imagine the messyness factor involved in a 3+some. =) In this case, it's all good and safe. Phew.

    BnB, I do believe you, Byron (you're the one commenting, right?) will win because you'll be the one opening the package, right? Do keep me posted.

    Cheers, all.
