My brand new mobile phone which I’ve only had for a month and barely started paying for yet has been stolen. Warrenty does not cover theft.

My favourite teapot is in the dishwasher.

I’ve been rained on both to and from work.

I accidentally stepped on a kitten paw coming home (thankfully no injured kitties followed)

Apparently we’ve run out of one of two kinds of cat food. They’ll have to make do with a second breakfast instead of dinner.

I’m in bad need of comfort and calming down tea. Making things right in the world again tea. Tea that reminds me of happier and luckier times and the wonderful friends I’ve made here.

Again, thank you, QG, for sending me this. You saved my day this evening.

Now, if you’ll all excuse me, I’ll go somewhere else and be bloody enraged for the rest of the day. I’m going back to only second-hand mobiles. They’re much safer from stupid thieves. >:(

: ( Can you at least cancel the plan with the phone company? A number of my friends are “locked in” their contracts and couldn’t cancel them even in the phone were stolen. So sorry for this miserable day!! (But grateful that you’ve got a good tea by your side)

LadyLondonderry

If there was ever a day that called for your very favorite tea, this is it. I hope it is bringing you some measure of comfort. And I too hope you can at least cancel the plan ASAP so those horrid thieves don’t get a free ride at your expense!

I phoned customer service and had the sim card blocked as soon as I got home (and worked out how to get to talk to a human being). I have to keep paying for the phone itself until this gets sorted, but the customer service lady, who was very nice, told me that if/when I got money from insurance, I could pay the entire left over amount in one go and then that would be out of the way. In the mean time I could visit one of their shops and have a new sim card made (same number) with a super-basic temporary subscription and then have that converted into the one I had on the stolen phone when I got to getting a new new phone. Or something. At least that’s how I understood it.

Uniquity

Well, if you understood that much, you’re doing better than me!

QuiltGuppy

Wow, that truly is an awful day! I’m sorry to hear it, but hope that things go better. I had my first iphone stolen, and boy do I wish they had a remote ear electrocution app.

Angrboda

Yeah, I’m considering when the time comes that I get another one, making the wallpaper on it just say “THIEF” in big letters… The world is against me. It was against me today also.

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.
