I was looking through my icons, saw this one, and had a MAD craving for Christmas. My seasonal senses are fail.

As I have not posted in a metric forever, I am again going to try and get back into things. However, I am also going to cheat! Since there are new people on my list, I am going to pass along a question my uncle asks basically everyone as soon as he meets them:

"What are you looking forward to?"

I keep not updating. This is a flaw.

SO

Since I am overwhelmed, I will restart updating as follows: Ask me any question, and I'll answer! (WITHIN REASON, CREEPERS) After this, I will assume you have all satisfied your curiosity with my entire life up until this point, and can start fresh.

Bonus: HAIRCUT )

Regarding my last "entry", any f-list cutting is cancelled because basically everyone I wasn't sure about said they DID read my journal after all. Even if there might be a few who didn't answer, I was wrong enough in my assumptions that I'll happily give them the benefit of the doubt ;]

[Poll #1414646]

I'm just curious who actually reads me on my f-list. I've been toying with the idea of my first friends cut, only because I've accumulated a fair number of people who I don't seem to interact with. I thankfully don't have anyone on here I dislike or anything, but it's finally gotten a bit out of hand. But before I do anything (assuming I do at all) I'd like to know who actually reads my crap anyway, when I do post once in a blue moon ;]

I am alive in Texas!

Went straight from airport to the house of one of [livejournal.com profile] shinga's friends for a Memorial Day party thingy, got back laaate and her home interz0r seems to hate me. I am online on my comp now only through juryrigging and fairy dust.

Diana, her cat? Made of cuteness and evil. I approve.

Already having fun, had a convo with one of her friends over which Enterprise was the better design. I love this place.

I AM GOING TO FLYYYYYYYYYYYYY

I am all packed, and ready to go! Flight leaves tomorrow at 2pm my time, arrives 4pm Texas time. Gone until June 5th, and all is awesome!

I have everything I need (or so I goddamned hope), have a total rundown of the airports, and all possible "what to do" scenarios. I am so mentally over-prepared, but it helps keep me calm ;]

OMG I need to sleep, but OMG.

(Random aside: Super Punch Out for the Wii is awesome and fun. And kept me sane.)

Next time I post, I will be in TEXAS.

...who the fuck would have thought my first flight would be to Texas? I love how my life never goes as expected; it keeps me interested in it ;]

12:38 am - Tea-d Off

Tags: ,

Solid day, met up with [livejournal.com profile] terminus8, walked around Square One to talk and catch up.

Along the way, met up with a mutual friend, working at a tea place called Teaopia. I'm a regular there, and most staff know me by my constant order of an iced Wild Cherry tea. This one friend, we also know her from my university; every time I am in there, and she is working, she tries to get me to try a different tea. But most times, I just want my Wild Cherry, because it's damn good! I try new ones sometimes, but she's never working then.

She tried, once again, but failed. [livejournal.com profile] terminus8 got something new however, and there was a small confusion by another staff as to who ordered what. I automatically recognized my Wild Cherry, offhandedly remarking that "I could recognize my Wild Cherry a mile away by this point." Our mutual friend raised an eyebrow: "You think you could always identify Wild Cherry from a distance?"

She works at a tea wonderland. She knows a crazy amount about tea. If I was half-sane, I'd have picked up on the challenge, and wisely stepped down.

Apparently my ego outweighed my wisdom this night, so I gave a cocky "Yeah!"

She proposed a challenge. We'd come back later, and I'd have to visually ID the Wild Cherry from across the store. If I was right, I got the Wild Cherry and she'd drink a "nasty tea". If I failed, SHE got the Wild Cherry, and I got the evil tea. [livejournal.com profile] terminus8 got the decoy tea no matter what, so he won by simply being there ;]

I promptly forgot about this, and later had a coke AND a coffee. As I was finishing the coffee, we walked past her store again, and she waved us in. They were getting ready to close, but she had been waiting for me.

She's brewed both Wild Cherry and an "other", and had me stand on the other end of the store to try and pick which was which. My ace in the hole was not simply the colour of the tea, but how transparent it was.

...both were red to the point of BLACK. One glance, and I knew I was fucked. I tried to make a judgment as best I could, and picked one.

...Strawberry Kiwi.

As promised, she then prepared me my Humble Tea. And... wow. I now know the taste of defeat, and it is Tarry Lapsang Souchong. From the website description, emphasis mine:

"This distinctive Black Tea is known for its naturally created deep, pungent, smoky aroma. Black Tea leaves are fired over smoking pine needles, which produce its overwhelming scent and flavour. This unique tea experience is a must try for Black Tea lovers."

..."unique" is right. It smelled like a campfire, and tasted like burnt cardboard. VILE. And to top it off, it was caffeinated, which mixed amazingly with my coffee I'd just finished. It was the most horrible thing I'd ever drank. Choice quotes include "it offends taste buds I didn't know I had", "it tastes like my mouth wants me to stop drinking it", and when I made [livejournal.com profile] terminus8 try a sip, "the taste is haunting me". I had to stick a lid on it so I could block the smell enough to get it close to my face, and ended up mixing in 6 sugars and a bunch of milk to make it POSSIBLE to drink.

But I drank the whole fucking thing, because me and my fat mouth brought it upon myself. The whole time, I felt the tea shop's Buddha was watching and laughing at me. Afterwards, I ripped off the part of the drink insulating sleeve that said "Your Journey to Wellness, the balance of Mind, Body and Soul", and wrote on the back "The taste of defeat is Tarry Lapsang Souchong". I plan to keep it in my pocket for a while, as a charm against being an egotistical ass and getting myself in over my head ;]

Random memory, came up while chatting with [livejournal.com profile] kennapea:

Back in high school, I was waiting in the office for some reason to talk to someone or such, and was rifling through the pamphlets they had available there out of boredom. One of them was "How to cope with the loss of a child". I found this hilariously morbid to be available there, so I took one to read later and stuffed it in a coat pocket.

Days later, some kid I barely knew kept talking at me and being generally annoying. So I turned to him and calmly interrupted him, "Hey, could you give this to your parents before tomorrow?" and pulled the pamphlet out and handed it to him.

The look on his face was priceless: You could see him wondering why the HELL I had one of those just sitting ready in my pocket. He just stopped talking, and walked away.

He never came back ;]
