Hiii! You just added me to your circle, so I've been poking around your journal and I must say... this is one fabulous list. Thanks to you, I now have that "I'm Really Sad" website on my toolbar for handy access. And I am in full agreement that desserts with white chocolate and raspberries are one of the best things ever. ;)
