Never mind me, I'm just out of touch with reality.

I watched this video ("TeaToday Feb 7, 2008 - How to make a great chai latte") months ago, and just now found myself sitting on the couch thinking, "I should look that video up again and find out what brand of chai he used, because that stuff was really good and tasted as good as the stuff you buy at the store or Starbucks." EXCEPT I'VE NEVER TASTED IT. I just watched someone else tasting it and somehow transferred it to myself. Let me tell you, in my mind, it was delicious....

Thoughts from Detroit Metro Airport

The guy at the check-in desk asked if I was over 18. Sigh. I asked him if my bag was small enough to carry on and he looked at it for a while and judged that I should check it. I shouldn't have asked - it probably would have passed.In my rush to get out of the house this morning, I skipped brushing my teeth, justifying it by telling myself that it would give me something to do while I waited for my flight. Now my toothbrush has been checked and I am The Great Untoothbrushed. Waaaaaah!I am also The...

My love/hate relationship with milk

When I was growing up, my parents had to force me to drink milk. I would avoid it all through dinner but then I would have to finish the glass before I left the table. I would hold my nose and chug it down. I knew it was good for me, but I don't like the taste or the smell or the consistency... I don't know what I don't like about it, but I just don't like milk. A small glass (just enough to wash things down) goes well with brownies or chocolate chip cookies, but I hate it with...

Skim is fo' suckahs!

On the way to work today, I stopped to get an iced chai. I need some kind of beverage to keep me awake in the morning and iced chai is my new kick. "Whole milk or skim?" the counterperson asked me. I replied that I wanted whole milk and both of the people working there cheered. Apparently skim is the popular choice, so they get really excited when someone chooses the other. I said, "Life's too short to drink skim milk" and they agreed. We bantered some more over my newly-acquired punch card and now we are Best Friends. I...

'Fill oh fill the pirate glass'

Note to self: Espresso Royale has the worst, most expensive and possibly smallest chai tea latte of all the coffeeshops in close proximity to West Hall. I don't know why you manage to forget this so often and waste $2.50 on sludge rather than paying $1.95 for something rather nice at Amer's. I don't know either how ERC's chai manages to be so awful when it seems like every place in town just uses Oregon Chai from the carton. Perhaps they blend their own monstrosity rather than trusting the experts. De toute façon, avoid at all cost. Try to remember...
