Ice-Cold Chocolate Therapy

The Dowager Duchess is coming home Monday. San Geraldo decided to stay with us another week to help her get settled and then he and I will fly back to Spain together. Have I mentioned that the man is a saint?

It's currently 29F/–2C here on the beach (in Brooklyn). And, although at this point, Sunday and Monday are expected to be miserable days (clouds, snow, rain, sleet), temps are expected to be above freezing for the foreseeable future. A veritable heatwave!

Here's a quick look at what we're enduring and how we're surviving. (Click any image to enlarge.)

THANKS TO SAN GERALDO, THIS IS HOW I COPE.


He's the ice cream man; he's so good to me, yeah.

  1. Good to hear from you, Mitchell!
    It's cold here, 991 miles away -- snowing and 26°F, but I'm warmed knowing that you and San Geraldo will be welcoming la D. Duchesse home soon, and visiting with her for another week after :) She must just absolutely love getting to see you both :)

  7. I think there was a double-blind study in JAMA in 2013 comparing chocolate ice cream to prozac; the former caused more weight gain but beat the Rx and the placebo by a country mile for treatment of depression.
