flavor combinations

What are some of your favorite conventional and unconventional flavor combinations?

This post brought to you by the anticipation of a cup of coffee sweetened with maple syrup.

cold bed!

As winter (which I, unlike most of my flist, love) approaches, I am reminded of a problem I've yet to find a good solution for: my bed (which I also love).

This is the issue: in the evening, my body temperature drops down a bit, so I tend to be cool-but-not-cold when I'm getting ready for bed. Then I climb into my cold bed, and suddenly, I'm shivering and cold until I manage to produce enough heat to warm up my mattress enough to let me warm myself up enough to finally fall asleep. This is suboptimal.

I've considered putting an electric blanket under my bottom sheet and turning it on for a few minutes before I get into bed. Does anyone else have any bright ideas?
