Chocolate is closer to sinnlessness

Last night, I finally got around to doing what I have been meaning to do for an entire year. The problem with my intentions, is that they can only be done once (maaaaybe twice) a year, otherwise it is simply too late and you must let it weigh on you for an entire school year, until the start of the next... This task is meeting my neighbors! I'm so embarrassed to announce that last year, I never ONCE met anyone living, not only directly around me, but on my entire floor! Absurd! The problem, though, is that knocking on doors after the first month of school just to meet your adjacent inhabitants will make people think you're the weirdo-neighbor, because, why do you care to know who I am now? We've been here for many moons already!

Anyway, this year, I was not going to let that happen to me again. Last night, my roommate and I made oatmeal chocolate-chip cookies, and though we sampled a cookie from each pan that appeared from the oven with lovely chocolatey-gooeynesses, we still had enough to knock on every door in our hall and give away several. Now, hopefully I'll be able to at least recognize my neighbors next time I see them.

On a related matter, I recently discovered that there is no caffeine in chocolate! How Marvelous! This is just one more reason why I shouldn't feel guilty about eating my favorite consumable object :)

There's no need to feel guilty for eating chocolate! It's delicious.

However, the page you linked to may have misled you. Chocolate does indeed contain trace amounts of caffeine (although the primary stimulant is theobromine).
