Backlogged from this morning’s travel mug. My, my. I do believe the Drama Llama visited Steepster last night. Complete with Martyrian Exit and everything. I will outright admit that I might not have handled it too well. Wank makes nobody look good, and I’m no exception. A better approach would probably have been to show them how to write a discussion prompt without being hurtful in the process, but I was too angry at the time to realise that. Again, my apologies to the admins for not having managed to contribute in a constructive way, but it doesn’t change the fact that I stand 100% by every single word I said. Or wrote, if you prefer.

One good thing did come of it, though. This morning I enjoyed my cheap-as-dirt and supposedly-white bagged tea IMMENSELY. Spite can make the mediocre occasionally exceptionally awesome.

Cheers, all!

LOL @ the Drama Llama.

Is that anything like the Alpaca of Unhappiness? :)

Carolyn

That really sounds like something Neil Gaiman would come up with. If I were in Denmark, I think I would dare Angrboda to include the Alpaca of Unhappiness in her NaNo Novel. ;)

Cofftea

You handled it perfectly:)

teaplz

Drama Llama and Alpaca of Unhappiness! Classic! I love you guys.

Angrboda

I’ve never heard of the Alpaca of Unhappiness, but I’ve learned about the Drama Llama over LJ way.

Carolyn: I ain’t making no promises. But I’ll see if I can give it a go in the 5K I have left. Yeah, there is NO WAY I can round this story off before I’ve hit 50K.

Auggy

I just like alpacas… I figure if there is a Drama Llama, there can be an Alpaca of something, right?

Jillian

Sooo can I still call you ‘the Angry Dane’? ;p

Angrboda

As long as you don’t expect me to start speaking Dutch. :p (Dutch?? Where did he get THAT from? O.o)

Cofftea

It could be worse, instead of " cheap-as-dirt and supposedly-white bagged tea" you could have had no tea at all.:)

Angrboda

Indeed. :)

Jillian, check my bio update. LOL! I couldn’t resist. :p

Jillian

LOL! XDD

I agree with you on the Dutch thing, maybe he thought that since they both start with “D” they mean the same thing. GeographyFAIL. rolls eyes

Angrboda

So…. in Canada you speak Chinese? And in India they speak Italian? :D Geographail indeed. I was pissed off to high heaven last night, but now I’m just way too amused by it.

Jillian

Well actually a fair number of people in Canada do speak Chinese, due to our large immigrant population. ⌐_⌐

But no I agree, complete and utter Geographail.

Angrboda

… Hadn’t thought of that. Apparently I also need to get my geography sorted out. (Or whichever subject that would fall under.) I should have thought of a more obscure language.

Jillian

S’okay, lol. I think that would fall under linguistics or maybe cultural anthropology, not geography. :D

Profile

Bio

Ang lives with Husband and two kitties, Charm and Luna, in a house not too far from Århus. Apart from drinking tea, she enjoys baking, especially biscuits, reading and jigsaw puzzles. She has recently acquired an interest in cross-stitch and started a rather large project. It remains to be seen whether she has actually bitten off more than she can chew…

Ang prefers black teas and the darker sorts of oolongs. She has to be in the mood for green and white, and she enjoys, but knows little to nothing about, pu-erh.

Her preferences with black teas are the Chinese ones, particularly from Fujian, but also Keemun and just about anything smoky. She occasionally enjoys Yunnans but they’re not favourites. She has taken some time to research Ceylon teas, complete with reference map, and has recently developed some interest in teas from Africa.

She is sceptical about Indian blacks as she generally finds them too astringent and too easy to get wrong. She doesn’t really care for Darjeelings at all. Very high-grown teas are often not favoured.

She likes flavoured teas as well, particularly fruit flavoured ones, but also had an obsession with finding the Perfect Vanilla Flavoured Black and can happily report that this reclusive beast has been spotted in a local teashop near where she works. Any and all vanilla flavoured teas are still highly attractive to her, though. Also nuts and caramel or toffee. Not so much chocolate. It’s a texture thing.

However, she thinks Earl Grey is generally kind of boring. Cinnamon and ginger are also not really a hit, and she’s not very fond of chais. Evil hibiscus is evil. Even in small amounts, and yes, Ang can usually detect hibiscus, mostly by way of the metallic flavour of blood it has.

Ang is not super impressed with rooibos or honeybush on their own. She doesn’t care for either, really, but when they are flavoured, they go usually go down a treat.

Ang used to have a Standard Panel of teas that she tried to always have on hand. She put a lot of thought into defining it and decided what should go on it. It was a great idea on paper, but in practise has been discovered to not really work as well.

Ang tries her best to make a post on Steepster several times a week. She tends to write her posts in advance in a word doc (The Queue) and posting from there. This, she feels, helps her to maintain regularity and stops her from making five posts in three days and then going three weeks without posting anything at all.

Angrboda is almost always open to swapping. Just ask her. Due to the nature of the queue, however, and the fact that it’s some 24 pages long at the moment, it may take a good while from she receives your parcel and until she actually posts about it.
