4046 tasting notes

Came home after a looooong day of testing and rewriting people’s terrible terrible English. Not that you’d be able to tell from most of my posts, but I write well, and part of my job is content management for what our clients see. They haven’t had anyone really paying attention to this stuff for a while and it’s appalling what we put in front of clients. Needless to say its my job to clean it up!

We hit the gym on the way home, which was nice cause I’ve been slacking but part way through my run I started feeling awful. So now I’m home with a splitting headache and sore legs. My tummy doesn’t feel well either so I suspect the stress is getting to me. On the plus side my dearest wonderful other half bought me some tea because I have to cut back for a bit because funds are tight AND made me dinner.

….and my tea order from Stacy arrived! In the 10 days! Of course now I REALLY do have too many teas…especially with the travelling tea box on its way. On the plus side ill get to send some of my teas off to other homes :)

Too much tea! Story of my life!

Haha, yes, Sil, autocorrect is quite good at mangling your posts! :D

Also, I hope the stress reduces soon! I had a very unhappy tummy today too… could be stress-related for me as well given the abundance of upcoming deadlines, or it could be related to crappy sleep habits (which also relate to said deadlines… sigh.)

Sil

Omg the new iOS sucks ass for autocorrect now. It’s too fast and autocorrects really weirdly

Kittenna

I haven’t updated yet. My boyfriend did and I don’t like the new maps application, so I’m holding off as long as possible.

Nik

Ha! I am so not surprised that you do what you do. I have done/do similar work and notice some similarities in our styles. =) Hope the stress lets up soon. =(

Kittenna, iOS6’s pros outweigh the cons. I agree that the new Maps application is atrocious, but maps.google.com in Mobile Safari works just fine. =) I use either that or the crowdsourced Waze (free) application. Have you tried either of those?

Kittenna

Nik – Hmm, perhaps I should just update then, if there are map alternatives (I have not tried either, but will!). My thing is that I actually use the map app as GPS quite a lot, as I have only lived here for 2 years and am still quite unfamiliar with the area, and didn’t want to be stuck with something crappy and useless! Thanks for the tips!

Nik

I totally understand, that’s why I suggest trying the browser version of Google Maps and the Waze application before you upgrade. Since you can’t downgrade iOS, definitely make sure you’re ready to lose the built-in Maps application before you make the jump. I thought to myself, meh, how bad can it be? (The answer is, “Really, really bad.”) So I’m glad there are alternatives.

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
