Well, it's a pink monkey from Japan. I love pink. I love monkeys. I love Japan. And he's cute. I use him for most of my avatars - boards and messaging. I guess I'm kind of boring that way, or at least as boring as someone can be with a pink monkey as an avatar.
So, getting into this whole flavored black tea thing in the mornings. Pineapple this morning. I wasn't expecting much since it smelled a little musky - kind of like when I dried watermelon in the food dehydrator. But taste-wise it was really good. I used some sugar in it so I think that really set it off. This one might have to be a keeper.
Can I just share - I've been having a horrible time the past week or so drinking greens. Fighting a sinus infection and everything just tasted horridly and drinking sencha... not fun. Well, I think I'm on the upward swing because last night I had some gyokuro (felt very risky, trying a green even when still having some issues with the sinus infection thing), but it was SO good! YAY! I can drink my Japanese greens again! Actually, it caused a problem w/ the Chinese greens, too, but I had been craving some sencha so that's what I'm celebrating. And I'm sure no one really wants to know all that, but I'm happy!
Lovely photos today from everyone... Brandon - love the irises. Sal, as always, totally drool-worthy.
