1000 words before tea or breakfast this morning. Okay, 400 of them were last night before bed. Now that I've eaten something, it's back at it until company comes in a couple hours. We're going to play with batwrangler's molecular gastronomy toys.
Tea today: Teavana Gyokuro Imperial, second steeping from what my roomie made last night. I'm still not overly impressed with it. It's like slightly grassy water on a second steep.
I think I will behave myself and avoid the black stuff for a while. I don't think I've gotten hooked yet, but I've been drinking enough that I will be soon if I don't back it off a bit. (My body handles caffeine insanely well. I suspect it's because my mother has a two/three pot a day coffee habit, so my system accepts it as a normal part of the environment. But if I drink too much black tea or coffee, I start getting headaches when I don't. Since I don't want to have to drink black tea or coffee if I don't feel like it, I try to detox regularly. Since green tea, white tea, and tisane are all delicious, this is pretty easy.)
