Jersey Girl Librarian

Hi, My name is Sherry, I am a Librarian working in Charlotte North Carolina. I have recently moved to the Charlotte area from New Jersey. As my blog title shows I am a Jersey Girl at heart and wherever I go, so goes my Jersey pride.

Okay, So I am posting again. My previous post was saved as a draft for several days as I contemplated continuing or not. Well this morning a coworker asked me if I was going to continue to blog because, I guess she likes to read my posts. So I explained my thoughts and she suggested I write about something generic like chocolate. So I am taking her advice and seeing if this will get me out of my slump.

Thoughts on chocolate.

I just had some chocolate for some inspiration. Acutally I had a Kit Kat and an Almond Joy and a swig of some hot Coke that I found in my bag. Mind you it is only 10:54 in the morning as I write this. Coke reminds me of this article that I read in the Charlotte Observer yesterday morning about Fried Coke. Apparently some genius has figured out how to fry Coke and will be serving it up to unsuspecting people at the North Carolina State Fair. Now I have heard of everything. What will these people think of next? Fried saltines?
Okay back to Chocolate. I just want to let y'all know that I didn't eat an entire Kit Kat and Almond Joy. They were the little snack size bars. That is what I love about halloween. You can pretend to buy all this chocolate in little sizes to hand out to kids but in reality most people just eat it themselves. I went to the store yesterday to buy a piece of chocolate and some soda so I could get excited about a computer class that I was supposed to teach last night. (That is a whole other story for another post.) Anyway I was at the store and couldn't decide what chocolate I wanted so I turned the corner to see if there was anything interesting on the other aisle and I hit nirvana. The halloween aisle for all those people that can't make up their minds they have provided the "Snack Bag" which has a little bit of everything for every mood that you are in. Feeling nutty have a Reeces Peanut Butter Cup, feeling tropical have an Almond Joy, feeling plain, have a plain Hershey Bar, feeling like a Kat, have a Kit Kat. Okay that last one didn't make much sense but I couldn't think of anything.
I think that is enough of a rant for today.
So remember:
1. Try the fried coke if you go to the fair and let me know what you think. I am curious to know how they crafted such a fine culinary masterpiece.
2. Halloween, it's not just for kids.
3. Snack packs great for people who are indecisive. Just don't eat the whole bag in one sitting.

    How 'bout letting me call an intervention the next time you go on a caffeine binge like that? Or . . . let me join in! Glad I could help provide inspiration ;o)
