MAKE YOU SMARTER.
Researchers at the University of Barcelona found that "the caffeine-glucose combo boosts your brain in terms of attention and memory."
I say, we all move to Spain where obviously the IMPORTANT research is being done.
So drink up, my brothers and sisters. Partake in the holy donut. Dunk it in the brown liquid of joy. Your brain will thank you for it.

A year of laughter
A year of joy
frosted over the days
A year of love
swirled torus linking beginning to end
It's only another year
May you have dozens more
and all of them truly filled with donut days

Well, you can no doubt guess my response.
In my comment, I describe my thankfulness like this:
Circular perfection. Frosted bliss. Sprinkled love. Holy donuts, for inspiration, for nutrition – okay, not for nutrition – for their uncanny ability to encapsulate all that is good and right in the world.
And now I ask you. Why are YOU thankful for donuts?

A morning donut could improve memory and the ability to concentrate.
From the article:
If you're having trouble concentrating or remembering things in the morning, it's often because your brain is missing the sugar (generally in the form of glucose) it needs to function normally. The sugar is used as an energy source for the brain so it can do all the things it needs to do. One of those things is producing an important neurotransmitter chemical called acetylcholine, which is important to a good memory, your ability to pay attention, and your mood.
Your brain makes acetylcholine from choline, which is obtained from the diet, and from acetyl groups that originate from the metabolism of sugar. We frequently obtain choline in our diet by eating lecithin. Lecithin can be found in many different bakery goods such as donuts and cupcakes and is commonly added to chocolate. Thus a tasty chocolate covered donut first thing in the morning is going to provide your brain with everything it needs to pay attention and learn new things.

THE VOO DOO DONUT IN PORTLAND OREGON
If I'd known this was in Portland I'd have made a special trip.
You are looking at a Fruitloop Donut, Capn' Crunch Donut, the "Dirty Snowball" (chocolate cake donut covered with pink marshmallow glaze and surprise filling), the "Simpsons" donut, and a Bacon Maple Bar.
I never thought I would say this but Portland Rocks! The fact that you have this amazing donut shop has made you a to do on my list of places I would love to visit.
Come to think of it, I do need a job.

This is awesome on so many levels, not the least of which is her wonderful intro.
She is the author of a novel called -- hold onto your sprinkles -- Donut Days. It debuted last year and comes out in paperback soon.
Everyone reading this blog should own it.

One volunteer wrote: "Today I made 22 pies, 300 doughnuts, 700 cups of coffee." Which sounds pretty much like heaven to me.
Then, in 1938, in honor of that, the Chicago Salvation Army started Donut Day as a fundraiser.
Today you can visit Krispy Kreme and get a free donut. Dunkin Donuts will also give you a free donut, but you must purchase a beverage.
But wherever you get one, just make sure you get one. Today is Donut Day, the holiest day of the year. Take, eat, share. Donuts are good. And so are you.

Specifically, on page 164 of Allison Winn Scotch's new novel, The One That I Want, a character enters the scene carrying a box of Dunkin Donuts.
What a magnificent moment. It's like she's writing directly to ME.
Okay, there are further extenuating circumstances here.
I first discovered Allison Winn Scotch through her entertaining presence on Twitter. Then I discovered her informative blog. And I then checked out her first novel from the library and, when the character spent time watching Price is Right at novel's beginning - which bookended beautifully with a Price is Right mention at the end - I knew I'd found a great author. So then I ended up tricking her into sending me an advance copy of her latest novel. Imagine my delight when I opened it to find the GREATEST INSCRIPTION EVER.
Why do you not own this novel? Go and buy it RIGHT NOW.
And get yourself a half dozen donuts to tide you over.

As did I, once.
The piece is very nice, an appreciation of what he calls the "'70s AM radio of the fast-food world."
