A Drug to erase memories…

drug to erase memories Tumblr picFound this little picture on Tumblr the other day and cannot resist thinking about it still… I would absolutely love to erase some memories, perhaps all of high school, and a few years after that as well, when I think this Wit’s brain malfunctioned because of the men she was with…but I digress…

Mainly this sci-fi-like drug was successfully tested on rats and mice by the Scripps Research Institute in Florida… (One has to wonder how researchers could know, like, did the rats forget they were rats or something?)… This drugs purpose is to help recovering addicts, human addicts that is, and people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

But dare we have hope for the Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind?–can those who suffer turmoil caused by, let’s say, a past relationship, have hope to expurge the memory of this certain regrettable time?

Like I said, I have a few relationships I’d like to forget, a few years I’d like to erase. Who wouldn’t?

Theme Post: Chocolate

I should probably save this post for closer to Valentine’s Day….romance aside, this vintage rotary phone in chocolate is the inspiration for it all…I must go on…

One of my most favorite romantic movies, Chocolat, starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp…pure sexy….and delicious….I remember having to take a small box of chocolates to see this movie. I said: I’m not sitting through a movie called Chocolat without eating chocolate….and I did.

And why not rent said movie and have a chocolate martini while enjoying….?

Another love: Le Vian chocolate diamonds….

A pretty cool read….movie version not too bad either.

Chocolate and diamond Rolex….pure luxury….

Diane Von Furstenberg chocolate brown suede clogs…my feet are happy…

Tell me, tell me! What is cuter than a chocolate Lab puppy?

I could live in this the rest of the PA winter.

My favorite nail polish: Revlon’s Hot for Chocolate.

Who thought they made chocolate colored cars anymore? This 2010 Mercedes in cuprite brown looks good enough to eat…of course I may die trying…then I’d end up here perhaps….
