Guess what I’ve been doing today? If you guessed filling out job applications, writing cover letters, and emailing my CV, you’d be correct! Spot-on! Somebody put me out of my misery!
I also registered for next year’s Gallifrey One convention in LA. It sold out in just under 2 weeks last year; this time, it sold out in 75 minutes. Glad I decided to put off picking up groceries until after tickets went on sale. What a relief! That was a stressful experience, to say the least.
I’m still holding out hope that one of these years, I’ll be invited as a guest. What are the chances you might be invited as a guest if you’ve already bought a ticket? Maybe I could use the ticket for a plus-one and bring somebody who couldn’t get one. Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself because unless you’re one of a handful of people who’ve written for Big Finish, nobody knows me because of Who yet. I intend to correct this.
Oh yeah, and I’m drinking Susan Foreman blend tea.
Susan, like the early seasons of Doctor Who is definitely worth getting to know. Opening the bag, I am met with the light and perfumed sweet-tart fragrance of bergamot and red berries. As befits a green tea, the flavour is delicate and balanced, without a trace of bitterness or astringency. Whereas raspberry black tea tends to have a bit of weight and that tannic undertone, there’s none of that here. The hint of vanilla softens the tartness of the raspberry and citrus, and it’s all just rather nuanced in a very agreeable way. An understated and very pleasant blend, delightful at any temperature.
