theerrantcurl asked: Currently brewing a cup of Evil Bunny Alliance tea - it just arrived in the mail! I'm so excited, thank you so much for bringing this into the world. Would you and Clovis recommend adding anything to the tea, like milk or sugar or the blood of the wicked?

Oh yay! 

Clovis prefers milk and sugar in his tea, while if I use any sweetener it would be honey. I suspect the blood of the wicked would overpower the flavors.

I have the top two of those hanging in my house! They were a present from the wonderful Carlee, and are by Barking Mad Arts.

Laughing at my own cliched life

I just had to rescue one of my fuzzy toy bats after he flopped nose-first into my teacup full of “Chocolate Tango” tea. He’s only slightly damp from the tea adventure.

Dear Self: yes, you need more tea. That is very obvious by how you nearly knocked the teacup over when you just tried to pour a cup.

This morning’s confusion: staring at my shimmery sparkly cup of tea until I remember that I brewed “Glitter and Gold”, which DOES have glittery sugar crystals in it! It’s not just plague-induced delirium! 

Still sick, and I’m only awake right now to call into work meetings. Bleh.

This afternoon's pot of tea

Perfect Pear from David’s Tea. “Apple, pear, rose blossoms, vanilla beans, and natural flavouring”. I need to place an(other!) order with them soon, because the Toasted Marshmallow and Persian Apple teas sound amazing. (I’m already addicted to their gorgeous Pumpkin Chai.)

Oh, Our Migraine Demon already stopped by on Monday for a quick visit. That’s why I’m a little frantic about trying to ward it off.

There is now a pot of Dr. Chocolate (from David’s Tea) sitting on my desk. If you listen closely, you can hear the StuntHusband fervently giving thanks that we are not hanging out tonight, and thus he will not have to deal with an over-caffeinated StuntWife.

Working from home for the day means a slightly-more elaborate tea time snack!

I am really excited to finally hear this album. The early reviews say it’s very much the soundtrack to a crazy musical, which is the sort of thing I love! (Photo from EA’s twitter.)

Rose-violet black tea, and Renfield the iPod shuffling through the “gothbox” genre. Just another morning at the office.

Obviously the coffee isn’t enough and I need to brew another pot of tea. Because I just readjusted the hatpins holding my hat at its jaunty angle, and stabbed myself in the scalp.

Of course, the sting from that HAS made me feel more awake, but I think I prefer caffeine to flesh wounds.
