Soooo after getting all fired up after the MOST USELESS MEETING ON THE PLANET!!!! I’m having a cup of this. Let me tell you, nothing shows the world you’re an idiot like calling a meeting to discuss something that’s already been decided – because you have options to present… uh. ok? never mind that we asked them to clarify 3 times before the meeting on what the meeting was about. Turns out…they should have just told us they needed us to tell them that we’d already gotten sign off about the thing they’re unclear about. Confused yet? yeah. so were we.
Long story short…1 hour meeting to decide that we’re going to go ahead with what we were already doing. yeah. ok then. thanks for coming out morons.
phew! the irate canuck in me is showing. you wouldn’t like me when i’m angry!!!!HULK SMASH! yeah ok… crazy girl needs to curl up with more tea apparently. and then sleep. seriously, having to stay up for that BS just has me all crazy. bah! gah! grrrrrr
good thing this tea is all minty happy dance in my mouth. also…it tastes SUPER awesome if you let a coke bottle melt in your mouth with the tea. yeah. i did that. :)
One of two caffeine free teas I thought to bring to china with me. I’m glad for the variety though I likely could have brought a few more since even though caffeine doesn’t usually affect me, I really don’t want to risk it when I’ve got such long days. Had this tonight while catching up on a few things from work after a day of exploring today. As much as it pains me to say it, actually had my first “north American” thing today in the form of Starbucks. Lol. Tracy had to pee desperately but didn’t
Want to use the public washrooms or eat lunch. So I suggested that if anywhere was going to have clean-er bathrooms it would be starbucks since they have to adhere to NA standards. She thought I was crazy….I was right though :p
Score one for the non native!
Highlights of today?
Tongrentang – chain of Chinese pharmacies…..seriously 4 floors of medicinal goodness
Temple of heaven and surrounding park
Best subway signage: “wheel chair fixer-please open door as necessary, take cord and fix wheelchair” go go gadget corded wheelchair fixer?" :)
Simple things to chuckle at.
Backlog from China. SIPDOWN! Oh yeah…managed two sipdowns while i was there so i’m feeling pretty good…well i will be until i update my cupboard lol 175 going up to…..we’ll see.
Happy to have had this in my Amoda tea box, since it’s a company i wanted to try. Enjoyed this as a minty tea and would likely repurchase in winter :)
I totally forgot this was caffeine free when i brewed this up this morning. Still a delicious cup though as I’m a fan of the mint and vanilla blend. It went quite well with my black so no complaints here!
omg can i go home now? If i get no more time in china to explore, i’m about done with work lol. I’m tired of being up past 10pm working…tired of trying to do someone else’s job… heh
sorry…long day full of long “politic-ing” have made for a grumpy over tired Sil. Add to the fact that i need to get some work done and i’m having issues with my remote access to work…yeah. tea needs to kick in with it’s happy vibes right about now lol
Evening tea! So tired from today’s events at work that I figured this might be a nice night cap with my giant bath. Nothing says relaxing time like a giant tub full of hot water and some tea….well wine might disagree but since they had me indulge in the local alcohol tonight, I figured tea was better.
I hope everyone has a lovely family dAy today, for those that have one.
