This winter I'll be going to a holiday party to which I'll need to bring the most exotic chocolate I can find. Apparently some guests to this party start their search for exotic goods six months in advance because of reasons, but as I am new to this universe I'd like to at least attempt to bring something of note now that I've been allowed to join the inner circle as it were. Where in San Diego, Orange County, or Los Angeles could I get delicious but intriguing chocolate? [more inside]

I took a risk and bought a small package of "la trau" leaves, not knowing what they were, hoping I could use them to make wraps of some kind. Research when I got home showed them to be betel leaf, the medicinal kind.

I. Need. To. Keep. This... Thing. Alive. Period.

I am the temporary care-keeper of a Medinilla Magnifica (here's a decent description). And it's trying to die on me - even though it has bright (but not direct sunlight), enought watering (but not to moist) and a quite humid placement. Please assist me to resuscitate it again. [more inside]

Please identify this bitchin' car from the 70s

Can you identify this exotic car I saw a month ago on the highway, heading towards Stratford, Ontario? It 70s vintage, low and boxy, sort of like a Delorean or a Lamborghini with gullwing doors. Painted flat black with electric orange trim. I think it had a name like Brookline or Brooklyn. [more inside]
