So that was rather interesting. I just spent the last 15-30 mins reading up on "gangnam style" which is apparently a Koren hip hop song with a really odd set of dance moves. Found a few interesting things...but other then the really odd dance...what is up with the "hey sexy lady" English phrase in the middle of it?

(Yea, I read the English translation of the lyrics, I know that Gangnam is an affluent town, and all that... actually decent lyrics to the song really)

Oh. And when it's gone, it's gone until the next year's version which may be very different.

Close the doors, light the lights.
We're stayin' home tonight,
far away from the bustle and the bright city lights.
Let them all fade away.
Just leave us alone.
And we'll live in a world of our own.

We'll build a world of our own
that no one else can share.
All our sorrows we'll leave far behind us there.
And I know you will find
there'll be peace of mind
when we live in a world of our own.

Good morning, everyone! It's SATURDAY!!!!!!! Yeah, I know... it's happened before. But never like this one. It's brand new! To celebrate, I'm having a big mug of East India Company's "Royal Breakfast" tea, tuna salad, and some grapes! Then we're off for ride up into the mountains to a hiking trail that leads to 43 waterfalls. At least, that's the 'name' of the trail. There are actually more than 43 cuz the Japanese call any water that goes over a rock a waterfall. But there are several along the way that are 10-15 meters tall, and it's a beautiful walk in the woods beside the stream anyway.

Therein lies the advantage of tea blender like East India Company or Taylors of Harrogate. Their blends haven't changed in 150 years. If I'm not mistaken, you prefer your blends with Darjeeling, which I don't care for at all, and I love Assam which isn't a favorite of yours. To me, Assam and Keemun are like 'garlic': you can add them to anything except chocolate ice cream and make it taste better!
I really wish I did like the Darjeelings... One of the shops here carries about 10 different estates of the stuff and I've tried them all... No go... I've just recently found a shop that is selling three different estates of Assam tea and I'm anxious to experiment with them.

Indeed, I do like a good Darjeeling. But I also love a good Keemun, as you know. But it's the Assam that just doesn't work as well for me.

Peet's regular blends never change, and they have a couple that I like a lot. But I am definitely in the market for a breakfast tea that doesn't require milk to satisfy. By all means, a link to your favourite is in order.

And that's what makes horse racing...

My all-time favorites for mornings are a toss-up between Fortnum & Mason's "English Breakfast" and their "Royal Blend," but both are Assam based. Sorry... After that, it's East India Company's "Royal Breakfast" tea, but that too is Assam based... Have you considered Ovaltine?

I am not a huge fan of Assam or Darjeeling. They both taste fine but are just a bit bland for me.

Right now I am enjoying the fact that a certain little guy has decided that 10 hour sleeps are a good idea. He had 2-3 before he got sick and reverted to 4 hour sleeps while sick. The last two nights he has gone down at 10 and slept until 6:30 and 7. I know it won't last, I have been reading, but I am going to enjoy it while I can.

I hope you're enjoying it by going to sleep at 10:30 yourself!

I get into bed about 20 minutes after we put him to bed and fall asleep pretty fast. Starting next week, I'll have to get up around 5 AM to get to work early so we can limit his daycare time.
