drank Vanilla Chai by Bigelow

Mmmm. This is my ideal dessert tea. Plain, although I keep meaning to try it with milk.

Sipping and reading Watchmen. Checked it out of my college’s library. This is one thick graphic novel.

a good read though, and different than the movie

Uniquity

True. I own both the movie and the ‘novel’ – so different, but both enjoyable. Except I didn’t like the black freighter stories.

AJ

Never saw the movie, actually. I thought everyone was apparently pretty impressed with how true the movie was to the book?

I never see movies unless my friend comes over from the island and physically drags me to the theatre. I am a social recluse.

Uniquity

The end is extremely phenomenally different. But it was a good choice, I think.

AJ

Aaah. I’ll have to rent it someday.

Alannah

Yay, Watchmen! A classic. :)

Bigelow Tea

AJ,

Glad to hear that the Bigelow Vanilla Chai is being enjoyed along with a good book!

Thanks for the mention,

apparently that was the first comicbook to be awarded a “Hugo” prize for science fiction 1988. The rest of the literary world responded, “WHAT? You say that a COMICBOOK is one of the best books of the year??!!!!! WTF!”

oh hey, also: I’ll lend you my copy of the dvd. You know where to find me! :)

Bio

I change icons often, apologies. On that note, they are usually Doctor Who related (so no, that is not me pictured in the icon, it is most likely one of the Doctors).

A tea-drinking transgendered Canadian, currently in the third year of university, majoring in geology (yes, “rocks and things”). I take most of my tea made straight into a mug, although occasionally if I’m not in a hurry (this isn’t often), I’ll have time to sit down with a pot. It’s the highlight of a good day if I have time for a pot.

My notes and reviews will often sound dis-jointed, repetitive and confused, as usually I don’t work on them as a whole, but rather add notes as I sip without rereading what I’ve already typed.

On most occasions I won’t take my tea with anything (I reserve milk for chai). Occasionally agave nectar if I want to test to see if it’ll smooth it out. Chais I will make with either the nectar or honey. Although on occasion I will sweeten unflavoured blacks the Russian way—with jam or jelly. Occasionally I will take it instead with a slice of a citrus fruit. Normally orange, occasionally lemon if I have any on hand.

I prefer Earl Greys.

Lastly, I keep a teatra.de blog for reviewing and rambling about tea books/publications.

Also, I am a Doctor Who fanatic. As one may have noticed by my icons. For the record, my favourite Doctor is number three, Jon Pertwee.

“But you should never turn down tea, when it’s offered. It’s impolite, and impoliteness is how wars start.” ~Eighth Doctor, Paul McGann
