thanks to this post I'm totally considering getting my Mum a massage treatment for her birthday.
CAN'T A BROTHER GET A LITTLE PEACE?

Alright, you bastages

Wow. Quite honestly, I never thought I would see this day.
You're talking to someone here, Suu, who will happily take coffee in volumes from a heaped teaspoon to multiple tablespoons to "only 3% water". And that's the nasty instant stuff. It's the only way I can get a buzz off it.
You'd love what I just made then. French press and everything. I knew it was a bit much, but I went with it and now my intestines are revolting.
Have you ever heard the tale of Richter's Espresso Machine when we both worked in Boston?
He would put 3x the amount of espresso roast into a machine that would give you about the amount of coffee to fill a large mug. There were two people in the office that could handle it, him, and Fabulously Gay Nate, who's previous gig was a bike messenger, and also the front of a synthpop band.
This shit notoriously sent me on a vision quest across Boston Common one lunch hour during which I preached THE WORD to a congregation of bums near the Park St. subway stop. I returned back to my desk and had a caffeine crash. My supervisor came over to check on me, as my head was down on the desk and groaning. Knowing exactly what to do, he picked up my phone, and dialed Richter. Who, within a few minutes, appeared at my desk with a fresh pot of rocket fuel he heated my mug with.
That was the day I saw Eris. Though it may have been Mayor Menino in drag. I haven't figure it out yet.
Holy shit, I'm actually getting WORK. In JANUARY.
Hot damn, I'll be able to make my student loan payments this semester after all!
So, my son has apparently come up as a match for bone marrow for a very sick 19 year old girl in Canada. So he's going to DC in February, to endure the glory that is a marrow tap (agonizing, and the drugs make you ill). For some kid he doesn't even know.
I'm pretty fucking proud of him right now.
So is the USMC, apparently. They'll be giving him 3 weeks convalescent leave in February, a month before he goes to Okinawa. So I'll have him back for more time than I expected.
Tell him that some spag he's never met is also really proud of him.
You helped raise a good kid.
Three and a half spags (I need to go running more).
I love tea. I have to cut back my tea intake, I drink waaaayyyy too much tea.
It can cause kidney stones. :/ Especially if you drink rich black teas. If you're more into green tea and lighter herbals, not so much, but they can still be very dehydrating. Which sucks of course, because tea is worlds better than coffee, imo.
Drinking black tea reduces the risk of kidney stones in women. http://annals.org/article.aspx?articleid=711282
The myth that tea contributes to kidney stone formation is based solely on its oxalic acid content, not on research into the effects of consumption. Even if the oxalic acid content was a concern, adding milk helps the body process it.
Luckily I'm not prone to kidney stones anyway, though.
