I'm pretty much over the cold/flu/whatever now. I cough every once in a while, but no other symptoms of note. As I've been working at home (I missed sitting outside at Linux Caffe yesterday :( ) I've been eating some of the chocolate Shane brought on Saturday (we started with 1kg of chocolate, we finished with >2.5kg, with 1kg eaten).
I started with the 86% stuff since I figure that much cacao is basically just medicinal. It's rather intense (the package calls it "Brut" in a chipped gold leaf design). I haven't enjoyed 85%-ish chocolate in the past, but it seems to have grown on me. Quite worthwhile if you want something that's not so much candy as a rich taste that mixes quite nicely with coffee.
Tomorrow I'll try the 75% stuff. I'm resisting eating it tonight by having chicken "soup" (more of a "crock pot chicken", actually) and hoping it will fill me up sufficiently to not want to snack any more (not really working, I'm famished).
