HealthDayNews -- Having a sweet tooth precedes alcoholism and may serve as a marker for the genetic risk for developing the disease.

That's the sobering conclusion of a study in the November issue of Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research.

"Previous research has established that in mammals such as mice, rats and monkeys, the preference for and consumption of sweet fluids are strongly correlated with voluntary alcohol intake," study author Alexei B. Kampov-Polevoy, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, says in a prepared statement.

Well, shit. This explains the love of both chocolate & beer. Just motherfucking lovely.

And sorry for the lack of updates lately. All six of you will be happy to know that the apartment is now fully painted (green living room, mustard hallway, red kitchen and terra cotta bedroom), and so less of my time will be taken up by the real & tangible, allowing more time to post the unreal and almost wholly trivial.

Yup. This is my life.
