Delicious tea

I love drinking tea, I drink about a full pot of tea a day. And since I prefer loose leaf teas, this can get a liiiitttle expensive since the only place I know to get good loose leaf tea is Teavana and if you’ve ever been there, you know what their prices are like.
So I was excited to discover an online shop for teas on etsy.com (From 4chan no less). teaman’s prices are so much better, and he has an amazing selection of hand blended teas in loose leaf or tea bag form. He did not have my favorite genmaicha tea (sadness) but I did pick out a Rose hip Hibiscus tea that sounded yummy, and at only $5 for 4 ounces I bought it right away. I also picked out a sampler of five of his tea bagged teas. He has a special going on through the month of February where if you spend over $7 you got ten teabags of ceylon tea for free so I thought why not.
I think I annoyed my boyfriend a bit with my obsessed checking of the mailbox every day, a couple times a day, until my tea finally arrived.

I kinda look like a drug dealer.... of deliciousness!

It was late when I got the tea so I went right ahead and brewed me a cup of the sleepy time tea that I picked out for the sampler. I don’t know if it helped me sleep or not but it sure was tasty. The next day I brewed up a pot of the rose hip hibiscus. As soon as I opened up the Ziploc bag I was entranced, the smell was so strong and so deliciously amazing. I would love to have a candle of it so I could just continue smelling that tea.

Yes, that is my stove, the lighting in my apartment sucks.

I think this what heaven smells like.

The tea brewed up into a gorgeous deep pink color. The taste was delicious. Similar to Tazo’s passion fruit tea but less….in your face. I would love to brew this as iced tea sometime. Mmm….drink a cold glass of this on a hot summer day…ahhh.

I recommend anyone who likes tea, even a little bit, to check this guys teas out HERE. His selection is large and his prices are good.

Minecraft ._.

So, my boyfriend got me addicted to minecraft yesterday. It’s insanely fun. You can explore pretty much forever. And create anything you want, two of my favorite things to do in a game. Which does not bode well for my classes that start on Monday, ha ha.

Underground waterfall!

My boyfriend and are are currently building a base together working on opposite ends. He’s filling his area with lava and wood, while I’m taking over what looks like an abandoned railway station. So much to do, so little time!

Ice!

I didn’t get around to post these yesterday but it seems like winter has finally come to Chico. It lasted well into the afternoon. Today, by comparison, is fairly warm. And supposed to rain sadly.

WordPress Blackout

So I just discovered that WordPress is one of the websites going dark tomorrow to protest SOPA. I think protest in good faith is always a good thing; however, I wonder if this is the right way to do it. This won’t impact the ones making the laws but it will impact those trying to speak out against it. I don’t know…

Having Fun with Cops

The coworkers of my best friend’s boyfriend decided to have fun with a cop sleeping in his patrol car. Be warned there is mild nudity. And silliness.

Yay, for new blogging sites

Well here’s my blog up and running now. I’m using just a theme for now but I’ll probably use my advanced web design class to program something better.

Wanna take bets on how long this will last?

Hello world!

Ahem, so. My last blogging adventure lasted through 33 posts. A new win for me. They were even almost, sort of consecutive, maybe a little. No, I’m not going to continue it now, although one might pop up every once in awhile. But that was last year’s adventure. New year, new adventure. Even new blogging site and name.
I have thoughts, lots of them. It gets rather crowded in my head at times. So, while the new year only, what, two weeks behind us? I finally decided on a resolution. I want to write. I want to actually get some of these thoughts out of my head and into the vast world of the internet where they belong.
This may or may not have been inspired by reading The Blogess’s blog all the way through to 2008. (Ok that was a lie, I don’t have that much of an attention span, it was November 2011.) And I think she’s a pretty cool lady, I like her website design, which only made me want to design my own website with my limited html skills. So one thing led to another and now here I am. So we shall see what becomes of this.
Oh! I just came up with a cool name! B+B Books and Bread! Course I’d need a third B, or something nifty. I wouldn’t only write about books and bread. Hmmm…B….
Dictionary.com just informed me that ADHD does not stand for attention deficit disorder. Well no shit, that’s ADD. The H is for hyperactivity. Two similar conditions but still different. Although as someone with ADD I can understand the confusion. Anyway, thesaurus.com was unhelpful in finding me a B word so I will simply wait before unveiling my awesome blog title.
Hmm… Books, Bread, and Brainwork. Or is that just stupid?
Would it be copyright infringement if I called it Bread, Books, and Beyond?
