  1. Honey Black Tea from Beautiful Taiwan Tea Company. It's a pure black tea, no honey added but has a naturally sweet taste. (I LOVE Taiwanese black teas almost as much as their oolongs). I'm brewing it "gong fu" style in a gaiwan.
  2. Cloudy and 60 degrees. Feels like October in June...I love it
  3. I agree. I also think it was unnecessary to have Data die in Star Trek Nemesis.
  4. I just had deja vu...happens to me a lot when I'm on the forums In fact I feel like I've posted this before haha.
  5. My brother worked at Tower Records years ago and said the same thing.
  6. Right now "Smells Like Nirvana" by Weird Al Yankovic Earlier was listening to various songs by Weezer.
  7. My dad and I ordered some pizzas from a little artisan pizza joint. I got one with pepperoni, mushrooms, red onions and green peppers. Good stuff!
  8. Mostly cloudy and extremely windy. 78 degrees.
  9. Spaghetti Western night for me +. Right now watching For a Few Dollars More (1965).
  10. @Bulgakov haha in my head I always refer to it as Ding Dong...it's hard not to Tea names can be interesting indeed...I also have an oolong tea called Duck Sh*t Dan Cong...seriously that's what it's called haha. A lot of the Chinese and Taiwanese teas are named after their growing areas, and some are named after their aromas...like orchid, honey, and in at least one case, duck sh*t For the famous teas there's usually a little colorful story about how the tea was discovered and named as well.
  11. Another new tea, Medium Roast "Dong Ding" oolong from Nantou, Taiwan.
  12. It's been a pretty warm day and made it up close to 90 earlier, but now the clouds have moved in and it's cooled down to a more pleasant 77 degrees.
  13. A new medium roast Tieguanyin oolong tea. I decided to brew it western style in a glass pot rather than the usual gong fu style in a gaiwan. It's pretty nice and much cheaper than the Tieguanyin I used to get.
  14. It's a stormy afternoon and 64 degrees
  15. We had our first 80 degree day of the year here yesterday, and today it's 60 and mostly cloudy with a chance of some thunderstorms. It appears the long winter may finally be gone for good now, or at least until next October anyway
  16. I'm trying out my new little 2 quart slow cooker/crock pot with some Little Smokies and barbecue sauce. Man it's starting to smell good in here right now Also got a new electric skillet that I'll try out sometime this weekend. I really need to eat more...my weight has dropped down under 120, and the only way I'll eat more these days is if I simplify my cooking so that I'll be more motivated to cook. Anyway I'm loving this little slow cooker...I was worried it would be too small but it's perfect for me and fits well in my (small) kitchen. And now I'm rambling haha...I'm just excited to start cooking actual meals again.
  17. Yeah I think it's such a fascinating show and Attenborough is the best. My favorite is probably Blue Planet but they're all good, and I just love anything to do with wildlife.
  18. The Daily Show on Comedy Central. Haha I love laughing...is there any better feeling in the world?
  19. Planet Earth: Frozen Planet episode "Autumn" on BBC America.
  20. Oh it's great I love that show! I watched it quite a bit in the 90s and now I DVR the episodes on a channel called Comet on weekends...funny stuff for sure
