1592 Tasting Notes
There are days when I realize that I am seriously warped. I think we are all shaped by where we live and where we grew up, and for me, that’s in the hot section of California. (I mean, its all the hot section, but still).
So I say ridiculous things like “oooh, only going to be 96 degrees today! its cooling down!” and today is such a day of madness.
So, while its still below 80, I’m quickly drinking tea, and dreaming of autumn.
Despite my new influx of fall teas, I’m still working on sipping down some of my less beloved teas.
That, and its going to be 106 today, so forget fall flavors.
This is one of my bagged teas. In my life, there are some mornings when there is nothing for it but to have a quick bagged tea, and moving on.
This, alas, is not my favorite bagged tea. Its a serviceable floral earl grey, but I’m not in love.
Still, it served its purpose this morning!
I didn’t sleep well last night. Stupid bad dreams, causing problems! Gah!
And even though its an extra day off work today, there is a massive sale going on at Goodwill, so I’m waking up and getting ready as early as if it was a work day.
I love thrift stores. They’re easily my favorite shops, and I look for them wherever I go.
Sure, I strike out every once in a while, but I’ve bought books and ballgowns at thrift stores. My favorite clothing items I own have come from the Goodwill, and my house has got some very eclectic and wonderful things, bought for $1.50.
So I’m excited. The only thing better than a thrift shop is a thrift shop on half price day!
Saturday! And a fun one, too. I’m off t an Anime Convention today, which is always good fun, and I am excited to go.
Significant other has a number of panels, games tournaments, and other such things that he wants to participate in, and I can’t wait to see the art in the vendors halls. I always seem to come back with a new picture.
I need to be fully energized, so thank you, Boston, for helping me out.
I had a phone interview today, with the HR department for the job I informally interviewed for on Tuesday. If they like my answers here I’ll get an in person interview.
So, I thought, as that interview went well, why not start the day the same way, with a freshly brewed pot of this lovely blend?
Maybe Paris tea will be my lucky charm tea for job hunting. I hope so!
Fingers crossed, this sounds like a good position. I like my current job, but I think its time to move on to new challenges!
