206:365 - Almost Devonian - updated: Because there's an emergancy, dangit!

Philippe: We tried for the Devonian gardens today, but neglected to check on it's status before going, so got there and found it closed.. Ah well. Still got some shots of the flowers *just outside* the gardens ;)

Anna: I uploaded the photos I took at Devonian here, if you want to see them. I thought this photo Philippe took of me to be more postworthy, though. ;-) On the way back from the Devonian Gardens, we swung by an Indigo bookstore. As I was purchasing an educational book for my daughter, Philippe tosses in this red package.

Well... I thought it was funny. ;-)

The front of the package reads:

For immediate relief of: Chocolate Cravings, Lovesickness, Exam Pressure, Mild Anxiety and Extreme Hunger.
Directions for use: Tear open wrapper; break off desired dosage and consume. Alternatively massage into the affected area. Repeat dosage as required until finished. If any symptoms persist consult your local confectioner.

On the back, it reads:

Since its creation in New Zealand, Bloomsberry & Co.'s premium all natural chocolate has been tantalizing tastebuds and seducing senses. Now this exotic designer chocolate, infused with a delectable sense of humor and superior ingredients, has come to America.

Unfortunately, it doesn't live up to the hype. As far as chocolate goes, I found it rather icky. Kinda like the cheap, waxy chocolate Easter bunnies.

Perhaps this is why. The ingredients are: sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin (an emulsifier), vanilla.

At $5.99 a bar, sugar shouldn't be the first ingredient, and soy anything shouldn't even be in the same manufacturing plant. *shudder*

But it *is* funny.

Beautiful photographs~

Of course, by 'Educational Book', she means 'Book full of naked people, written about in a haughty manner'.

Love the three you took, the middle one in particular.
