I love the Steepster community because most of you will understand the wonderful state of Christmas well-being created when one drinks from a Tardis mug, a gift from my son (the call booth DISAPPEARS when you fill it with hot water!) and watches the Weird Al Yankovich Al-pocalypse Tour on DVD, interspersed with brief sessions trying to manipulate my new Perplexus puzzle. Tea geek paradise.

The well-being, unfortunately, wasn’t caused by the tea itself; it was just the first bag I grabbed to try out the Dr. Who mug. No particular flavor stood up for me to take notice if it, just a tarty-citrusy amalgamation.

Happy Christmas, wonderful cups of tea, and joy to you all. I was reminded at last night’s Christmas Eve service, with candle wax drizzling down my hand and tears drizzling down my cheeks, that joy has been here all along—I just forget to look for Him.

We got the Perplexus, too! I pretty much stink at it!

Reminds me of this quote from Ralph Marston’s twitter feed: “Even when you have no reason to enjoy life, enjoy it anyway. For joy is its own best reason.”

Stephanie: I love that quote!
GMathis: I just read your review aloud because fully half of our gifts came from thinkgeek. My hubby said, “I didn’t know shenwas a geek!”. LOL! Kindred spirits! My son was on stage with Weird Al , dressed in his stormtrooper armor. You can see him on YouTube. He is the sand trooper on the far left facing the stage or far right from the stage perspective.

Not sure which is a cooler geek thing – gmathis’ tardis cup or ashmanra’s son being in the video. Both pretty awesome.

gmathis, thanks for sharing the witness. Life has been largely overwhelming lately and I needed the reminder. Be blessed.

SimplyJen, I got as far as step 45 and have spent an embarrassing amount of time trying to beat the Perplexus! Husband’s already online looking at their Epic version.

…and ashmanra dear, thanks to you, I am now within Six Degrees of Weird Al! That just made my evening!

ashmanra

LOL! I saw your Tardis mug online today. WAY COOL!

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
