INFINITE EXTRAVAGANCE 2

Earlier this summer there was the devastating realisation that Plaisir Du Chocolat in the Royal Mile had, without warning, closed its doors. Suddenly, life became hardly worth living.

This week, I'm overjoyed to report good tidings. Birds are once again singing, church bells are ringing, and Edinburgh's dogs are vigorously wagging their tails: the dying sungod has risen to reappear in the shiny new premises in Thistle Street. Number 48.

That's good to know - it should be about time for my annual intoxicating hit of 100% cocoa. In fact, my brain's crumbling away at the mere thought of my last experience, wow...

"And Moses said to his brother Aaron, 'What is this that you have done?' And his brother Aaron said to him, 'Do not blame me brother for what these people have wrought. The people came to me and said, "Make us an idol, so that we may be like the other nations." And so I told them to give me all of the new next generation video game systems that they had brought with them from Egypt, as well as their new cellular phones which take pictures and low quality videos that may be posted on Youtube, and I threw them all in a fire, and out came this chocolate shop.'"

If anyone ever inquires why I in time went bad,
Its because a long illness meant all chocolate is now off the list.
If they find me naked on top of the post office with a deer rifle, surely this will be one of the reasons contributing.
