I will admit it, I am a lover of chocolate! The smooth, rich, melt-in-your-mouth, dark sweetness is a temptation too difficult for me to resist.

Shall I compare thee to a chocolate bar?
Thou art more smooth and more sweet:
No calories can I gain from afar
To witness all your work is my treat
If my imagination causes me to melt
Over consumption may cause my complexion to dim
Even more might make love handles felt!
By chance I found you, looked for more on a whim
And now my craving I cannot deny
I seek you out -- my mind in such a haze
I look, I listen and I sigh
To velvet richness of voice, brooding azure gaze.

As long as you are there and I can see
I will continue both to sigh and squee!
(With apologies to William Shakespeare)

I found this funny German video quite awhile ago and I have been waiting to share it with you.  A rough translation follows, but I am sure you will get the gist of it!

John Thornton vs. Chocolate / by miltonlass

I found an English translation for this song from a commenter on a blog called Dans Mon Cafe about the German singer Trude Herr.
"I never have any dates. At the very most I get to go for a short walk with my parents. But my father says, this is how it should stay and gives me chocolate (as compensation). But recently I just exploded because chocolate's simply not what I want.
(refrain): I don't want any chocolate! What I want's a man! I want someone to kiss me! And make me weak and defenceless! 
I celebrated my birthday just a while ago, together with my aunts, who gave me flowers and chocolate. But I yelled "I don’t want that anymore!"
Last Sunday I bought lottery tickets at the fair and won. But the prize disappointed me a lot. Because I got a teddy bear, chocolate, and marzipan. I threw it all angrily into the crowd while screaming at the lottery ticket seller: 
Just Sayin'

That video is very funny. Thanks for the link and the translation. The candy face in the hole looks quite tasty. Happy Valentine's Day!

I meant to add a link to your chocolate box. I will have to fix that very soon!

Oh yes! Thornton's chocolate is very good! I have mentioned that company before at least once or twice here. If I could get it in Canada I would eat it all the time!

Glad you like the video, I've been hoarding it for quite some time for just such an occasion!

I like Chocolate Day! Could I get that Guy choc? I think you've just found a gap in the market ;)

If only I could get paid for my ideas! LOL! I'd prefer to have the man like in the video, but lacking that option, chocolate will have to do. Thanks for visiting, can I call you "Iwanna" for short? ;)

I am so glad to introduce you to it! It has been saved on my "Funny Stuff" Playlist on Youtube for quite awhile. I was going to use it last Valentine's Day, but the theme didn't quite fit.
