Just FYI, dropping a couple of those little Hershey's Special Dark bars into hot coffee does not work very well. The bar dissolves into little particles, about .3 to .5 millimeters in diameter. Very weird. It tastes OK, but it's noticably grainy. Kinda gross.
The marvelous phreddiva is going to be doing a show at the Bay Area Discovery Museum which sounds interesting... I think I need to either find somebody who has a kid and babysit for an afternoon (that was always one of the advantages when I was dating a woman who had a kid; she made a handy excuse to go to things that were theoretically aimed at a younger audience; plus I was going back and reading a bunch of children's books like Winnie the Pooh, picking out stuff that could be read aloud) or just gather a group that's willing to channel their inner children for an afternoon.
