attack of the work.

Yeah, so I have a confession to make:  The majority of the time, I blog from work.
Except work has been super busy the past few days.
Mostly because I actually wasn't supposed to work those days, but got called in anyway.  Can't complain, more money for tea.

Anyway, I'm behind as hell, so here's a quick catchup and story-time post:

A while ago Phil gave me a sample of a half ginger, half mint blend.  I got it because I knew that if ever I got nauseous, that would probably help out.  Well, didn't I start to feel ill a few days ago?  I tried out the tea and once it hit my tummy it was like "BAM! SHUT UP TUMMY!" and my tummy shut up, and everything was good.

On Monday, my one day off since last Thursday, I went over to my friend's place to make her some tea.  She just had surgery, and was feeling pretty ouchie.  To make her feel a bit better I got her some Welcome tea (chamomile, rosehips,lavender,roses,pink peppercorn) from World Tea House and while I was there I tried a cup of Blueberry Jasmine nice as the blueberry was, I think I prefer their Spring Jasmine.  The Blueberry Jasmine seemed a bit more bitter to me.
While I was there I also picked up a tin of the ginger mint blend.  It really calms my stomach, and it tastes great.  At least, I think it does.  Not everyone really feels the mint, I guess.

Anywhoo, once I got to my poor post-surgery'd friend, I made her a cup of the Welcome tea, and myself a cup of the ginger mint. I left her what was left of my ginger mint sample (since I had a whole tin for myself anyway) in case she was feeling sick from pain. :(
I also left her my copy of The Losers on DVD.  Nothing helps my mood like watching Chris Evans.  *sigh*

Yesterday I started the day off with Chai, and had a Vanilla Chai Latte for lunch.  I added a little sugar to it.  I got some more water for my mug on my way out again.

Finally, today I started off the day with the ginger mint instead of chai.  Had a green tea latte for lunch today.  I was kind of hoping that it would wake me up, but right now I'm still feeling kind of drowsy.  I could really go for a nap right now...

Also picked up a cup of Rooibos Chai for my co-worker today.  I wasn't really sure what to get, so I figured that was a safe option.  Luckily she seems to have really liked it. :D

I also re-steeped my ginger mint.  Not as spicy the second time around, but still good.

Phew!  I think I'm all caught up for now.  I think I'm going to have to set aside blogging time after work in order to keep this up. :/


  1. That tea sample has mysteriously disappeared! I am shocked and outraged.

  2. Gasp! I will have to make you some more when I get the chance now that I have a tin of it.
    Or you could just ask Phil next time you're in the shop.
