Friends are like wine, they get better with age

I really like this sentiment, the idea that the longer we know someone the richer the experience becomes, is heartwarming. However seeing as most of my experience with wine includes copious amount of inexpensive plonk, I couldn't help wanting to end the statement at 'friends are like wine. '

Or in my case friends are like cheap wine. And it works. Friends, like cheap wine, help you get drunk, they don't cost you very much, and the more you have the more likely it is you'll end up dancing on the table singing along to 'A Whole New World'. This isn't what happened on Friday, but as we all stood around laughing for Michele's birthday I realized how grateful I should be for the incredible people who were surrounding me. I keep reminding myself to drink in everyone and their incredibly diverse personalities. I find the more people I meet the more I realize how much you can learn from your friends and how vital they are to your growth as a person.

I guess in that way friends aren't like wine. They are more like herbal tea, you let them steep and you get a stronger idea of who they are. Goodness, I guess today is comparison Monday, I read that last sentence back and thought to myself 'maybe friends are just like friends Meryl'. See the difficulty I have go through ignoring the more sensible voice in my head.

I chose to write about friendship today because this weekend was my friends Michele and Grace's birthdays. The two of them are actually quite similar, both are strong and smart and caring. They both make me laugh until I can't breathe and are genuine and kind, I love the two of them to death, and do worry what would happen if I lost them from my life.

In other will never guess what happened. After deciding my slightly frayed thread of consistency in this blog would be news about chocolate I found a new show called Chocolate News. Not only is this the same title I gave my chocolate blog entry. (A blog about chocolate, not a blog made of chocolate) It is also part of the pledge I made to bring you as much chocolate related news as possible.
Less excitingly, the show is terrible. Truly terrible, not even laugh at how bad it is terrible. I only watched the first five minutes, and that was a struggle. If you don't believe me check it out, I don't have a link for you, but those truly committed to this blog will find a way to view it....what none of you?

fine here's a link:
