I don't care if you really care
I have blood test results showing I'm antibody positive for Herpes simplex type II (negative for type I, interestingly enough). I've had two cold sores in the past year, and no genital outbreaks that I've noticed. Take what measures seem good to you. Although if, like me, you've never been tested before, or not within the past year, I recommend it. Knowledge is good and useful and, while not made of chocolate, can be encoded therein.

Current Music: The Cardigans, Life, "Lovefool" (on the radio in the coffeehouse)

OK, just checking. Some folks are... less willing to comment on their personal medical conditions in public.

There's been enough recent drama about this topic in second- and third-degree relationship to me that I want to leave it public at least for a while.

It'll also encourage people to read up on it. It's reasonably common and not very exciting (this is a good thing).

I was surprised to learn (in Micro) just how common it is. Overall in North America, I think 1 in 4. Studies in Northern California range from 25% to 50% prevalence.

You are utterly near-but-not-quite perfect. You'd be perfect if you could stand it.

The limit of human as it approaches perfection = Ambar.

I am both of those, and far more than even you can imagine. But what makes the combination special is that I mean every bit of it.

I was just thinking that you encode the ones as dark chocolate and the zeros as milk chocolate.

It's not actually chocolate. Not that there's anything *wrong* with cocoa butter, vanilla, and sugar...

No, wrong analogy.

Diet chocolate soda is 115 baud.
Chocolate Easter bunnies are 2400 baud.
Hot cocoa is 14,400 baud.
A Hershey's bar is 28,800.
*Good* hot cocoa is 56,600.
A Swiss chocolate bar is 10Mbit Ethernet.
Truffles are 100 Mbit Ethernet.
*Good* Truffles are a T1
T3 and OC3 to-be-determined.

Stop by Coupa Cafe in Palo Alto some fine morning and order a "spicy maya hot chocolate". Then tell me where it fits in that list. :-)

Hm, wasn't cocoa with a dash of cayenne the love potion in Chocolat?

(sighs) Well, my condolences. I think.

Hugs, in any case!
