Chocolate Chili

(already mentioned on Twitter)
Yesterday the canteen at work did vegetable chili with chocolate and Mexican spices. It amused me that this was just after Valentine's Day. It could be the Valentine's Day equivalent of turkey sandwiches on Boxing Day, using up the left over chocolate [I don't think it was but I wouldn't quite put it past them]. "This chili tastes of disappointment and crushed hopes. And chocolate, obviously."

Oh, I have snit.

Back to my ongoing fight with garbage collection vs reference counting vs wrapper classes vs things pointing to each other in weird ways (at work, that is, not this very moment). Our hero's final discovery of the week was that things were being freed in the wrong order, possibly exposed by my having fixed a reference counting problem. Grr. Not very rock and roll.
Talking of rock and roll, these amused me, if you are minded to watch these strange cartoons generated from text somehow - http://www.jwz.org/blog/2012/02/bad-ass-rock-star-tech/
