drank Lemon by TeaGschwendner
737 tasting notes

i don’t know exactly why i was so excited to try this one from the TTB.
but i like it in the way i thought i would. sunny. lemons are sunny ya know!
maybe it’s because celestial seasonings lemon is a tea that almost every non-tea drinker has in their cupboard. so it’s a tea for my teenage years. or maybe it’s cuz lemon and honey is what you add to basic teas anyways, but i never think of lemon teas these days.
so it’s nice to have this one dropped into my lap and realize i could search out a rich and deep lemon tea. one with real personality. this might not be it. but it was very good! and i’m gonna do a second steep of my little teaspoon worth for sure. right now.

somewhat related, i’m pretty sure i am getting a slow motion sunburn from walking to and from work.
and sunblock just sweats right off me. i’m a super sweater! not exaggerating. i always have extra shirts with me. is that gross? idk whatevs.

also DOMA was deemed unconstitutional! yay!
“A great win not just for the gay community, it’s a great win for the American tradition of equal justice under the law,”
and i now suspect i will be reading a lot of fanfiction that includes this in my foreseeable future. (as a person who never wants to marry, fics that end in marrying tend to make me squirm a little, but i get over it quickly. there is always the next feelsey story to read!)

i think this song is happy! let’s listen to it!

LOL! “slow motion sunburn”
I got one yesterday walking to work, the unfortunate part was that I was wearing “TOMS” shoe and capri pants. Hello awkward tan lines.
I have a wedding to go this summer which means I’m going to have to get a spray tan and spray I don’t end up looking like Snooki.

Shmiracles

haha i ALWAYS have zany tan lines. i usually get one all over sunburn early on and then have strange lines evermore. i’m a burner, not a tanner, i’m sure you can tell. also. freckles.
i’ve never gotten a spray tan. but if you do end up like snooki just be sure to accessorize!

BoxerMama

LOL! I tan and burn and peel. I had gotten a bad burn a few years back and it took two solid years for the bra strap outlines to fade off my skin. My husband can walk passed a light bulb and end up with a perfect tan. he’s the worst.

Shmiracles

HAHAHAH my sister is the same! blonder and bluer eyed and always a warm caramel tan with ease. she is also the worst!
meanwhile i’m peeling and itchy and freckled and greasy from sunblock. sheesh.

BoxerMama

Life just isn’t fair. . . Unless you’re blonde hair, blue eyed and have a perfect tan.

Eewwww sun! evil wicked sun. If I ever jog outside, it has to be at 6am, but I usually go to an indoor track (I really hate the sun that much!) Thanks to Italian and Spanish and Basque ancestry, I have a natural tannish look, but I sometimes wish I was more pale to look better in my goth outfits. . .grass is always greener somewhere.

And hey now, how does it make sense that marriage stories make you squirm yet you are so happy for gay marriage rights? Sounds like a real life happy marriage story waiting to happen to me. haha. I am all for free love or marriage for anyone, but my personal fantasies and book interests are embarrassingly traditional. Princesses, knights in shining armor, happy endings and marriage. I was so upset when I thought Jane Eyre wasn’t going to marry part way through the book. But my traditional dreams end there, no kids for me! lol.

So far this morning, I’ve read one Steve/Tony DOMA fic and one #StandWithWendy fic. First time I’ve ever read things sorted by Date Updated.

Shmiracles

haha Starfevre! THAT’S what i’m talkin about! so cute. all the peeps.

OMGsrsly

Shmiracles, I find that the “baby” sunscreens with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide last better on my sweaty self. Just be careful to not get one that’s super greasy. Aveeno is OK, but I have a tinted one from Paula’s Choice for my face that works wonders. I work in a tropical room part of the time,and it lasts!

Shmiracles

OMGsrsly, I’ve just googled Paula’s Choice. thank you!!

OMGsrsly

Just remember to pat the face dry, don’t rub. :D I wear that one hiking, cycling, “running”, etc. I figure if I’m washing off colour at the end of the day, it’s gotta be good!
