New Year's Everotica: For Old Time's Sake

My Dears, the Silliest of the Most Silly,

2017 was perhaps not the world's greatest year. At Life by Chocolate, though, we're thrilled. Why? You showed up! And you showed up consistently. You showed up with a smile. You showed up to grace us with your sharp wit, warm thoughtfulness, outrageous humor, and heartfelt care. Your presence is more important to me than I can say. I relish in giddy-overwhelm when considering all of the unexpected journeys and rewards I've enjoyed because of you.

And we* have plans for an active 2018 here. Oy vey, do we have plans! (Dude Three will return with a wacky twist. Reasons for Celibacy makes a comeback. Erotica never leaves. Will Martha ever leave? We haven't yet managed to oust her.)

I'll be slipping away from cyberspace during New Year's. So I'm leaving this here, along with hopeful sentiment. May 2018 bring good health, love, peace, and all the silliness you deserve.  Chocolate too, of course. Lots of the good stuff. Dark, creamy but firm, hard but not too hard to lick and chew, European or Latin or Costa Rican - whatever entices me. I mean you...

*"We" means Kelly Clarkson and Maccauley Culkin whenever they stop by to take a selfie, and me.

Happy 2018.
I love you, Dear Sillies.

  2. I have already complained about you heating up the already sultry ambient temperature over here.
    Here's hoping that the New Year brings you all the fireworks you deserve. And chocolate. LOTS of chocolate.

  5. Happy New Year to a wonderful gal who deserves all the chocolate creams that a man just can’t provide...but he can try:)

    1. Eh, move over duds - I'm going for the real chocolate creamy milk duds and other fine cocoa edibles.
      Thank you, Birgit. Happy 2018!

  6. We made it through another year.
    That in itself deserves a good cheer.
    I wish all of you here
    A very happy New Year!

    I wanted to say something about Martha's rear, but I regained control at the last moment. You should feel relieved at that.

    1. Your choice gave me relief. I chuckled and sighed. Martha's butt isn't pretty -
      it's quite ugly and wide
      But she rocks bladder-proof undies
      and serves a nice quiche on the side.

  7. Hopefully you get some fun repeats at your sea and a great new year is had for thee. I think we need to stick Martha and her buns in the deep fryer though and leave them there.

    1. A great year to you
      One that's playful and fun
      no such wishes to Martha
      May she deep fry her buns.

  10. Another poem for me to read to Willy Dunne Wooters. I love it when he laughs. He can't remember the names of any of my blogger friends. He can't even remember the name I use for him on my blog. He refers to himself as Woody Dunne Woody. Do you think that has some significance?

    Love,
    Janie

    1. I dunno. Wait...OH! Yes. I think it does have significance. Send him over here so I can be sure.

      Love.

  12. Hey Robyn,

    Here's to 2018 being a much better year than the surreal, bordering on a nightmare, that 2017 has been.

    I only just found out what a "selfie" means. And to think I thought it meant some kind of um, self-pleasuring. Oops...

    Have a wonderful New Year, my adorable friend.

    Gary :)

    1. Oh, a "selfie" doesn't mean self-pleasuring while you take the photo? Um, oops.

      Yes, Gary, good riddance to 2017. 2018 is already much better, right? A healthy, peaceful, saner year to you, friend.

  13. I thought I’d commented here—some sarcastic view of 2018 being when Martha becomes Trump’s cook (as she’s back to work in a prison cafeteria)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. She'd be wearing a pretty pink ankle bracelet and tight spandex. (She has a thing for Trump and likes to heat things up when he's around.) Eww. Sorry to ruin your (and my) appetite forever.

  14. Happy New Years, we had some chocolate in our desert last night...so, ended the year on the right note. And some bubbly of course.

    1. Money? Nah, chocolate's much more valuable.

  17. We are old alright, well, at least I'm starting to feel it.
    As for repeat performances, at my age, I'd settle for a single one haha

    Hope it's a great year ahead for you Robyn. May you find that elusive, dare I say it, Dude Four.
