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 make you laugh like never before, cry in a good way, and hoard all the fair trade chocolate I haven't yet found. Thanks for sampling Life by Chocolate. I hope you keep coming back for more.
We're closing 2013 with this year's 20 best of the worst pick-up lines from internet dating ads. This post is strictly non-fictional. Our cast and crew shortened, but didn't alter, these ads. We simply ordered them from the best of the worst of the the worst to the worst of the best of the worst -- generally, though we don't know what that means. At any rate, please laugh, enjoy, and have a safe and love-filled New Year's. [Note that "love-filled" is often most wisely accomplished Solo - as in (1) alone or (2) not Chewy.]
1) love Star Wars and met Chewy in the Woods once during a family vacation.
And then what, sweetie? Did he show
you his lightsaber? Reveal that he’s your father? Teach you how to Dougie?
2) some of y'all
are more stuck up than tampons Oh yeah? Well some of y’all are more dense than a Tolsty trilogy.

A patter for your whole life? I
might suggest moving into an airport security check-point.
8) I lick the outdoors.
Caution: Beware of cactus plants,
porcupines, and yellow snow.
9) short hairy men make better lovers
According to your photo, babe, you
are bald. Just thought you should know. (Hint: This may be why your bed is

rather clever. Now I’m just confused.
13) LIVE LIFE LIKE IT WAS YOUR LAST
Do you know something that I don’t?

Job well done!

Dude, I don’t like it that much. I’m
Jewish. I don’t even eat ham.

Be glad you’re not me, honey,

19) I'm the biggest jerk you'll ever meet.
Not true. We won't be meeting.
20) I'll know you're it when I fund
you!!Fund me, babe, and I’ll know you’re
The cast and crew of Life by Chocolate gathered to vote on your funniest comments of the year. When I asked Macaulay Culkin (he needed the work) to sort through over 17,000 comments to determine his top picks, he said something I can't pronounce or spell. Then he disappeared to catch burglars or tweak or something. Thus it was all up to me. That said, it's Macaulay's fault if you aren't featured below.
Truth be told, I didn't actually read through over 17,000 comments, so I likely missed yours. I did capture some gems, though. In fact, I wasn't able to narrow it down to 10, as I originally intended. Instead, I've listed 20, in no particular order.
Thank you all for your supportive, silly, caring, and hilarious words. You help make Life by Chocolate the sweet and spunky place it's been for nearly five years.
Love and all good things as a new year approaches. Keep a smile and a stash of fair-trade chocolate.

man would be the first to say "No Fat Chicks."
4) Alex J. Cavanaugh said...If he met Chewy during a
family reunion, that's a giveaway that the man probably goes through razors
like there's no tomorrow.
5) Melissa Bradley said...He met Chewy in the
woods?!! It's Chewie as any Star Wars fan knows. If he can't get that right,
why bother dating him? I mean he should know thatChewy is an adjective not a

7) Gorilla Bananassaid..."Make Feel Some Type
Of Way" definitely has potential as a song lyric. Maybe a duet involving
Pee Wee Herman and Kermit the Frog.

"What do you mean, size matters?"
I'm one of four Californians participating in Mark Koopmans' bloghop, 50 States of Pray. If you don't already know this, Mr. Koopmans is a warm and friendly resident of Hawaii. So I call him "Mr. Roarke." (Fantasy Island reference.) Mr. Roarke's bloghop offers a beautiful way to mark Xmas Eve in blogland, and I'm lending my Jewish voice.
Judaism emphasizes a concept called "Tikkun Olam" (pronounced tea-koon oh-lomm). This means a healed world. We not only pray for this, but each of us is obligated do our part to bring about peace on earth.
Love and blessings for a very Merry Xmas (as relevant) and holiday season.
Together: A Prayer for the World Blessings for healing Of body and mind Freedom from hurdles That stall and confine
The urge to laugh A surge of will To savor breath in moments still
May bursts of hope Feed hardened souls And broken bits Grow into wholes
Violence quelled by rising care A shift towards what's just and fair
May dreams be held and given birth That none shall doubt their precious worth.
May love pervade All life, renew Wounds be sealed and scars be few.
I'm not feeling particularly cheery this holiday season. I'm not depressed either, just in a somber, existential kinda place. Thus, the deep darkness to follow. Sorry if you dropped by for cheer. I'll bring it back real soon. moon over Chico, 12.13

It's been a long dry spell, lasting through most of 2013. I've expelled more reasons for this below. As always, the ads (in bold) are lifted from men's actual attempts to attract women on-line.
Enjoy, and keep a smile.
We're almost through the holiday madness. Right?
