I can't think of a better solution to getting high than André Leon Talley mixed with a little bit of chocolate!
Every time I read about André or see him posing in one his epic Louis Vuitton mink stoles, I smile from the inside out. Luckily, NYmag.com provided me with an amazing ALT fix yesterday via an up close and personal article (READ IT!) about the Vogue editor’s admitted desire to sit and think for hours over participating in something athletic. He's quoted saying, "I suppose the most daring thing I've ever done is try to water ski. And that was not successful...I only take risks in couture, but I don't take risks in athleticism." His unfettered dedication to living a life of pure luxury makes me feel all warm and tingly.
And chocolate; chocolate is on my mind from the moment I wake up. I would gladly inject the stuff into my veins if it were normal. I'm an addict—in fact, we all are. When chomping down on it our brains release serotonin; more so if it's pure chocolate as opposed to a cupcake which is diluted with ingredients that keep us from a bliss-like state...the type of state we're in when we're madly in love.
So the next time you think about experimenting with a wonder drug
, reach for some raw chocolate instead. The Sweet Beet, a blog for food experimenters like myself, suggests , "—specifically sold at Whole Foods in NYC you won’t find anything raw in the Chocolate section)." Best part is that's legal! Hip hip hooray for my fellow blogger-cum-chocolate lover.
