I am all astonishment.*

How about a nice cuppa?

Given the sheer quantity and variety of tea that I have both at work and at home, I am completely amazed by how frequently I simply don't have the tea that I want. Either I don't have it at all, or it's at home and I'm at work, or vice versa. This morning, the issue is decaf black tea, either plain or Earl Grey. Apparently I have no such thing at work, and I'm kind of stunned, because I have about fourteen types of tea in my cubicle. I wound up with decaf Constant Comment, even though I don't really even like Constant Comment that much anymore. I think it's time for an Adagio order...

* Bonus points to whomever gets the quote!

OF COURSE that's Miss Bingley. :) (But I couldn't place "I am determined to start afresh" until a fellow Austen fanatic helped me out.)

I just drink plain old Lipton tea most of the time, although I like the fancy stuff just fine too. One of the Costco sample attendants I saw yesterday gave me the idea for making fruit juice into ice cubes and using them in iced tea, and now I can't get that idea out of my head. Must try it soon.

The quote is from "Pride and Prejudice".
I think Caroline Bingley says it to Elizabeth Bennet, but I can't remember why.

I have a lot of tea myself - I got round that problem by splitting the packets :)
