drank Kiwi Strawberry by Love is Tea (LIT)
1199 tasting notes

Do parakeets have off switches? The nicer it is outside, the goofier Sebastian acts. I feel bad because I can’t open the windows because of my allergies. The pollen count was 2607 yesterday. Today it is 4151. Thankfully it is supposed to rain tomorrow so hopefully it won’t get 9000+ like last year (seriously. http://www.atlantaallergy.com/pollencount.aspx?year=2012&month=3). It was horrible enough last night when I went to get my mail…you can just feel the large particles in the air. Ugh. And they’re not even the problematic pollen.

I had this iced last night, it was a lot more subtle than I hoped for. That might be something I can change by adding agave or sugar or something. I didn’t really get kiwi, just a tiny bit of strawberry in there.

I’ll finish it but I far prefer the 52teas kiwi strawberry margarita white tea I still have a bit of…gonna have to have some more of that today. I think these flavors may be better suited to something more delicate than black tea. This is overall a pretty good black, it tasted great iced and was really smooth.

Is that a over 9000! joke I see?

momo

haha yes, I think it’s everyone around here’s favorite over 9000 joke.

I love that my boyfriend introduced me to said joke a few months ago, so I get what you’re talking about :D

I used to have parakeets & other birds. I raised canaries for awhile, not intentionally, but because my kids got me a pair of them & they kept having babies! Before long, almost every one of my students & friends also had a pet canary (I just gave the babies away), & it was pretty cool! I named them Findhorn & Sedona, & he was a marvelous singer! One time I was recording Canon in D for a wedding client, & when I played back the recording you could hear Findhorn warming up in the background. By the end of the piece he was singing like a soprano in an opera, really into it! I mailed the cassette (anybody remember cassettes?) to the bride with a note: “If you want the Canary, it’s an extra $50.”

Getting birds to shut (the hell) up: Go buy a dark colored pillow case, or other covering item, & anytime you want some silence, cover the cage.

You have my sympathy on the allergies, I feel your pain.

I’m trying to teach him to just even chirp to the tune of the chant of “ole ole ole” because it would be amusing. He’s sort of getting there. And he’s normally very well behaved but lately he just goes on these squawking outbursts that I think he picked up from one of my mom’s birds when we were visiting last month.

That bird continues to chirp and squawk even when covered. It’s horrible. I was supposed to adopt him and his cagemate, Sprite. But it wasn’t going to work, Valentino NEVER shuts up. I guess I’ll just throw the cover over Sebastian when he’s doing his Valentino impression. Like right now, he’s just making these cute little chirps but sometimes he just goes out of control haha.

Terri HarpLady

LOL, probably also because maybe there are more outside birds as the weather warms up, & he’s responding to them?

momo

He used to, he hasn’t lately cared…but I just realized what gets him. He likes the growling and screaming in Vampire Diaries. He likes Daleks and screaming in Doctor Who. I think he might be evil hahaha.

My parakeet has been crazy lately too. I think he can hear the birds outside and so he goes nuts in the morning and wakes us all up “talking” to them. :)

Ha, I read the first two lines of this and as soon as you mentioned pollen, I instantly had to check your location on your profile to see if you were in Georgia. I used to live in Atlanta and can remember driving around in a pollen-yellow car for 2 weeks every year around this time…

momo

Haha yep, that’s where I am. Today it of course doubled.
