Ah, I am extremely cranky. There is nothing like nursing. They love to short staff so that all the nurses work 60+ hrs a week while sick and patient care goes down the toilet. Apparently they don’t care if people live or die…only if they make money off of it! I hate administrators. No heart.

Anyyway, I woke up cranky, knowing I’d be going into an overnight shift of this, so I brewed a cup of this hoping it would not only wake me up but cheer me up. I’ve never had an Irish Breakfast Tea before. Honestly I ordered it simply because it’s a black tea and has the word Irish in the title. I love everything Irish :). Smells beautiful…like raisins and earth. I already felt myself cheering up.

This was a suprisingly nice black tea, malty and raisiny black tea goodness. I drank the cup slowly letting the caffeine wake me up and put me in a slightly better mood. Now that I remember why the heck I go into work every day to begin with.

So far everything I’ve tried from my order from Butiki teas has been a hit…working its way into my favorites.

If it’s any consolation, it’s not much different in the lab. “We have no money, so you guys will just have to run faster. Overtime you say? Nooooo, you should avoid that! We have no money, remember?!” We’ve only got two hands…

Angrboda

Oh, and I forget, “Why yes, everything IS indeed very very urgent. Even the stuff that didn’t use to be urgent. URGENTURGENTURGENT! FASTERFASTERFASTER!”
