Hot Chocolate Dreams

Yesterday was the first weekday this year that I didn't manage to post anything here. It's also a day when I left work early because of uncomfortable flu-like symptoms. I'm not going to say that I "have the flu" because then there's nothing I can do but mentally resign and let it "take its course"… no, I intend to crush most of these symptoms today and end up slaving away behind my desk again by tomorrow.

I can't remember the last time I had a good hot chocolate. It's one of those things that's awesome, easy, and I still somehow rarely ever indulge myself in. Perhaps my dreams were partially influenced by the above-mentioned symptoms, but if I were to describe my dreams last night, I think the closest I could come is "Raiders of the Lost Ark" meets "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle" – minus the Nazis and replacing White Castle with hot chocolate.

Remember The Post About The Indiana Jones Fedora?

I think that's my longest blog post title ever.

Anyway, I really like that fedora, so much that if I found one that looked like it (and was $70 cheaper) I would buy it. But that brings up a few issues.

How would I avoid being "that weird guy that wears a fedora presumably to stand out and be noticed as the guy with the fedora"? It's one thing to wear a baseball hat around in public, another to wear a winter-ish hat around (especially during the summer), but a fedora? I can't really see myself making it work.

Also, hat hair. Assuming that the first issue was a non-issue, I can't wear a hat everywhere. At some point I would have to take it off, and at that point my hair would look like I had been wearing a hat all day. I guess I could get my hair cut even shorter.. that might solve that.

Most importantly though, wearing a hat like that almost requires that you fight bad guys and search for treasure. I'm not really sure I want to engage in such activities though. Usually such adventures end with getting the girl (which I already have. yay!) and cliffhangers leading to the next adventure – which just seems unnecessary. But, just in case, please refer me to any bad guys or ancient hidden treasures that you may know of.

Can you imagine how awesome I would look with one of those? Wait.. you don't have to!

It's me and my officially licensed sidekick Indiana Leprechaun Boy! (Grr.. I wish I had photoshop on this computer.)
