Not really a happy feeling, but a content inner peace from a solemn occasion. Yom Kippur started at sundown, so another day of fasting and atoning for my sins.

Also got to play D&D, though they totally wiped out the ambush I had laid. Next time, less minions, or sooner, or in waves.

The fact that I convinced a guy at work that he did in fact kill Partick Swayzemakes me happy.

I finished my essay that's due in an hour. I was so pleased with myself that I began clapping after I finished the last sentence.

Dark chocolate helps reduce girls' monthly cramps. I heard it from a nurse.

Thanks for that gem of a tip! But now I'm stuck wondering, why were you talking to a nurse about girls' monthly cramps? You don't have to tell me that though, sometimes it's more fun to use my imagination to answer silly questions :P

I have a friend that brought an 85% cocoa chocolate bar to class once. I tasted it and then wanted to edit undo. Oh, the bitterness. The friend continued to devour the chocolate happily.

It's a good theory, really. Eat food that only you enjoy, and never worry about the perils of sharing. Everybody wins! Kinda?

Because girls who are close discuss their time of the month just like guys discuss the wicked awesome dump they just took.

Americans have been entirely corrupted on just what IS proper chocolate. Hershey's chocolate, the most common chocolate in America, uses a special method that produces a different flavor. Eat American chocolate, then eat European chocolate. COMPLETELY different. Not to mention that most milk chocolate is barely 25% cocoa in the US and dark chocolate requires as little as 35%.

Chocolate in its purest form is incredibly bitter, so going from American grade purity to 85% is just gonna be a bad move. I suggest you develop your taste buds with 50-65% chocolates before moving to the more pure stuff. Also, dark chocolate pairs very well with a nice red wine as a dessert. Just chill the bar, bite off bits and eat with a sip of wine. It's yummy, and great for couples.

As to helping women during "that time", chocolate in its very pure forms contains anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidants, and pain relief capabilities. That's why its considered (again, in VERY pure forms) to actually be good for you in moderation. Wolfing a Hershey's bar, however, is not. Though the endorphins from the sugar gotta help.
