I have a confession to make. I am hooked on tea. Decaf tea, specifically, mostly herbals. I have TOO MUCH TEA. My tea cabinet, by which I mean that I have an entire kitchen cabinet devoted to tea, is full. And yet... I cannot pass up the opportunity to buy MORE tea if it sounds good. Which I did today and there is now officially no room at the tea inn.

Operation Toast Marshmallows Over a Candle is a complete success! Okay, it's a delicate and time consuming process that takes about five minutes per marshmallow, but there's toasted marshmallow at the end. I call that a win.

So, yes, massively unhappily sick. Woke up this morning, went to the bathroom, nearly threw up, went back to bed and didn't get up again for about ten hours. This better get over itself pretty damn fast, man, I cannot miss Wednesday's class.

In more positive news, I just had the world's most brilliant idea. I think. I mean, I'm sick, it could be an awful idea.

MYTHBUSTERS cover Food Myths, guest starring ALTON BROWN.

Just saying.

The oncampus health food bar does kickass smoothies and fresh juices, where they juice the fruits and veggies and roots right there in front of you. In most cases, they're a little strong and not nearly cold enough for me. However, they do a few hot juices too. The hot juices are a little like ambrosia. I have a cup of apple, lemon, fresh ginger, and honey with a cinnamon stick. It is AMAZING. It's like liquid really good tart apple pie filling, but not too sweet. I have a feeling that over the winter, I'm going to be drinking BUCKETS of this stuff. Mmm...

Someday, I'm going to make an actual substantive post again. But not right now. Important facts to know:

Saskatoon berries are not, in fact, blueberries, no matter how similar they may appear. They are also not so good for PB&J. The jam is very very chunky and thus should be applied with a spoon rather than a knife.

Thrifty Foods peanut butter may be great at oil separation, but it sucks almighty at oil reintegration. Not to purchase again.

These facts brought to you by my lunch.

I Cannot Hide What I Am

I must be sad when I have cause and smile
at no man's jests, eat when I have stomach and wait
for no man's leisure, sleep when I am drowsy and
tend on no man's business, laugh when I am merry and
claw no man in his humour...
I had rather be a canker in a hedge than a rose in
his grace, and it better fits my blood to be
disdained of all than to fashion a carriage to rob
love from any: in this, though I cannot be said to
be a flattering honest man, it must not be denied
but I am a plain-dealing villain. I am trusted with
a muzzle and enfranchised with a clog; therefore I
have decreed not to sing in my cage. If I had my
mouth, I would bite; if I had my liberty, I would do
my liking: in the meantime let me be that I am and
seek not to alter me.
