Motor Oil? Nyk you're being too nice!!

Oh how I remember that coffee, and despise it: coffee granules in your coffee cup (and not like a couple - but like a teaspoon), that "taste" that sticks to your mouth and makes you have to brush your teeth after every cup, it's so bitter you need Sugar, and so rough you need cream.

Even if you don't usually take cream or sugar - this coffee makes you break all the rules...

guys, I'm sorry to sound like a colonial throwback here, but a good cup of TEA is the way to go.

Clean tasting and refreshing, it also has just enough of a caffeine jolt to get the ol' motor running.

There are many different types and many ways to drink it - I'm sure y'all can find one to suit

I do love tea, but I'm more of an iced tea kind of guy. I don't usually drink hot tea, especially in the mornings.

But it couldn't be any worse.

Tea is great - black tea, not the fancy flavored or other stuff (though green tea is nice sometimes, too). The trick I find is to use really boiling water, not the merely-hot water most people dunk teabags in. A teapot, and briefly bringing it back to a boil, does wonders.

TWISI, I've yet to hear your inventory of mad skillz - come on, surely you've got something? Telling the age of cheese by sight alone? Mastery of the Tivo fast-forward buttons? Inquiring minds want to know!

Warm the pot first, put in the loose tea, or teabags, pour on boiling water, then put the pot back on the heat for 3 to 7 minutes depending on strength required. A good pot will take the heat no problem, but try not to use a metal pot as it impairs the flavour


Never wash the pot with detergents or washing up liquids - instead, just give it a good rinse. This allows the build up of the tannins on the inside and adds to the flavour.

Milk and sugar in a cup or mug if required, and pour slowly through a sieve if using loose tea.

Voila, the perfect cuppa - outstanding at any time of day
and particularly good in the morning.

Even a brew like PG Tips will give a great drink if you let it stand - but beware of stewing the tea by leaving it too long.



Now I fancy a cuppa

i got a tv set by a girl i knew, and after another year it break too, which was unfortunaetly sept 09
i got a small tv set which i bought 20 years ago back from a friend, but old crap hasn.t got a scart plug in, so no wii for the son.
last week a friend borrowed/lend (??) aka he gave a tv set to me which he is going to get back in summer
tv set wonderful '___' - didnt know a picture could be that sharp - is perfectly in order, but today the son managed to fell the cable from the aerial socket -not the one which conects the tv set with the socket, but the one which conects the sockt with the provider - halleluja no tv tonight
i had to inform the landlord

i am quiet pleased.

You know when you put it like that, a good cup of hot tea doesn't sound that bad. I'd still rather a tall glass of iced tea with a slice of lemon though.

Very refreshing!

Err I believe you mean LCD... although that sort of makes sense, too.


Also, every office in the US gives free coffee to employees. Really.

Considering some of the crap I have had to put up with some past bosses...I would beg to differ...


Enjoying my first day out of the race...

I've had a few jobs where coffee wasn't provided, although with what I'm being provided now it would probably be just as well if it wasn't.

We also get donuts and bagels each morning though. Those are good.

Oh the hassle and rat-race is omnipresent, too - mostly - so I guess every cup has a price.


Hooray for freedom! Congrats on the shift.

MEMORYSHOCK: I'm going to Disneyland!

CROWD: Nooooo!!!!!!!

My poor little sister was complaining to me recently – in her office not only did they lay off 11 people, but they asked the rest of the staff to take a slight pay cut.

That wasn't the problem though – she knows she's lucky not to be one of the 11, and is altruistic enough to take a slight cut if it means preserving someone else's job. Her complaint was:

they snuck in an additional pay cut by taking away the free coffee

Outside of my 'medical miracle liver'? (And yes, I consider that a skill as it is a perfect demonstration of mind over matter )


Hmm... I'll have to think about that, but I will say one (Wo)Man's 'mad skillz' is another's common place.

*wanders off... pondering*


EDIT TO ADD:

Okay, I've thought about it.

I do have the aforementioned fast-forwarding of Tivo skills.

I can predict who is calling on the phone 8 out of 10 times -- and if it is someone I don't know, I know that too. (I don't think I am psychic, but you may be considering your eerie Tivo insight).

And I can 'read a room' faster than anyone anyone-else has ever met.

Have fun!

TWISI
