Arggahahahaagggfffppphh! So I spent all day standing at the social security office. Blasted place needs more chairs, heck more people working the place.
Worse, I hurt my shoulder bad at jiujitsu last night – it got cranked one too many times so now I can’t lift my arm without eye watering pain. Joy.

I made a huge iced tea pitcher of this yesterday – thankfully! I need tea NOW! Candy raspberry with a little floral white. Pretty good iced, especially with some lemon slices. I’m gonna sit back, guzzle iced tea listening to Ziltoid radio with an ice pack on my arm.

Our SS office is the same way. I go in with my rollator and oxygen tank and no one ever offers to get up and let me have a seat. Most of them are half my age and look plenty healthy but whatever. I would get up for them because my mom loved me enough to teach me to treat others better than that.

Awkward Soul

oh totally. There was so many people standing that shouldn’t be. But also, I’m unsure why when people go to the SS office they need to bring their entire family with them, taking all the seats and not moving.

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
