  7. Okay, I confess – number 13 was my favorite. I just like the idea of it!

    Incidentally, I live somewhere in Purgatory, according to the landmarks…

    And the chocolate/sex thing? I knew that, but could someone explain why I like to *ahem* combine the two? 😉

    Ciao!
    A belated Happy TT to you! 🙂

  8. Oh my! I can’t imagine drinking a green Coke! And I must not be a normal woman. I never feel as good after eating chocolate as I do after sex… but then I don’t really have a sweet tooth. 8)
