I've been known to eat a box in one day. Mind you, it was a small box. But not as long ago as I would have liked. Ironically, I don't really like the tea. The smell and taste throws me off too much. But now I really want some Fruity Pebble cereal.Sam (formerly scarrell) wrote:Teasweetie wrote:auggy wrote:Just tried citron green for the first time. The smell was driving me nuts, reminding me of some cereal. I finally figured it out. Fruity Pebbles. Seriously. I think I've gone nuts.
Citron green...fruity pebbles?! How funny!! Citron green was what got me hooked on tea...and, yes, I used to eat fruity pebbles when I was a kid...and when I was a college freshman...!
Of course I had to go and pull out my tin of citron green to take a big sniff. I guess it sort of does smell like fruity pebbles - so strange! I never would have made that connection. Cereal like that's too sugary.

Another forum on which I'm active has an ongoing poll asking the members to identify their Myers-Briggs personality type. It seems that the predominant "type" on that forum - or at least, among the people who responded to the poll! - is INTJ (generally regarded as the rarest type numerically!). And in general, there is an extremely strong bias in favour of Introverted Thinking.
Now, I know that this is probably not what you meant by IT but I do think that many forums do self-select for folks who are introverted and/or comfortable with information technology (which often translates to analytical/thinking types, which often translates to an IT career choice).
Hence the abundance of spreadsheets
By the way, although I don't track my teas via spreadsheets - yet - I do track all my tea utensils that way. I also track my tea-related books on LibraryThing. Woo-hoo!

I like the way you think chamekke, next time you have an opening for a bf position, let me know. I'll fill out an app. Don't worry, I thrive on rejection!
