i am in ur library, shelving all ur books

Today, I started what basically constitutes my first job. Unless you count being a self-published poet, which personally, I don’t. Most jobs don’t take place at 1am and involve nothing but a pen and paper, let’s be real. I’m working in the library of my old school, which I left last year. I think I mentioned briefly in a previous post that the school librarian died a couple of weeks ago. It’s very sad — she was an important part…

Experiments In Tea

Experiments In Tea

My last post, my rubbishy updates post, was my 200th post on this blog. How awful is that? I was planning to do something special and failed completely! This however is number 201. It’s a Tea 101. No, it’s not. But whatever. I’m tired…excuse my rambling… I’ve been told, by people and books the world over, that the English drink tea. Arthur Dent of the Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, is famous for his liking for tea. I am English….
