This is 5/12 Christmas Teas! Maybe I can finish the night at 9? I’m so slow. Also so busy getting stuff ready and dealing with the kiddo. :)

I was hoping this would help to settle my stomach as I have had TOO MANY cookies today. I can’t believe I’m 32 and this is still a thing I do, but they were so good, and there are so many more treats to eat and I just can’t do it. Just…. can’t.

I better go for a big walk tomorrow!

Also, I better have room for turkey in two hours.

Time for a nice mint tea. I assumed absinthe meant mint, and I was right. Mint and a little bit of licorice sweetness providing a little bit of coolness to my mouth. This is great.

ETA Wooo! This was my 1000th tasting note!

JustJames

ummmm….. absinthe is booze, is it not? the banned hallucinogenic one from france (in its legit form)….. there’s no mint in it, is there? 9so clueless, lol)

JustJames

okay…. yes mint, (teachable moment for james) but holy hell…. also pure grain alcohol and WORMWOOD?

It’s not entirely banned! We bought some when I lived in Alberta because I wanted to see what the fuss was about! It had some wormwood in it as well, but now a days you can’t get ones with enough wormwood to make you hallucinate. (apparently)

I was only able to drink HALF a shot and even that was a struggle. My friends had 2-3 and it was enough to really mess them up. That’s enough for me!

You can get it in BC, or you could a few years ago, but maybe not with the wormwood.

JustJames

i have a friend with a friend who has a legit/legal distillery in the EU. it’s not allowed to be exported. not to anywhere in north america at least. you can buy the name and the soft stuff in liquor stores…. the real stuff (again i’m clueless) one shot equates to several hits of acid, apparently.

Cavocorax

Yikes. Yeah I think I’d be afraid of that!

JustJames

yeah. i know a few people that travel to the EU in order to indulge. soooooooooo not my thing. nice enough individuals, but we aren’t close, lol. i hve no prob saying chemicals like that terrify me! and (surprise, surprise) they think i’m allergic to them anyway.

JustJames

JustJames

Cavocorax

I WISH!!!!! We have company and I’m the ONLY WHOVIAN HERE. :O
(Until TK gets old enough that I can get her to watch them with me. I’ll probably watch it at 3 AM once I’m alone!)

JustJames

Tony set it up to record for me. I’ll watch it tomorrow when he takes a bubble bath (yes, real men take very long bubble baths).

JustJames

you better believe real men take bubble baths! although to be honest i prefer bath salts…. but that’s just personal preference. =0)

JustJames

we drink wine and tea while bathing too…. and if we have waterproof phone cases we play video games! =0P

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a little girl and a devoted bf, two cats, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, fandom!, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

I keep trying to learn languages on Duolingo and failing. I’m currently failing Esperanto. :P

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
