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.

Two spags.

Three and a half spags (I need to go running more).

Haha, add me and it counts as 5.

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.

I always has milk with my black tea.

Chai Tea latte or GTFO.

I fucking love chai. even the frothy shit you  get at coffee chains that's made with powder.

I have a coffee machine which I make all my chai lattes with.  The Tassimo/Twinnings stuff is pretty nice, actually.  Smooth and fragrant.

I tend to brew it like a average black tea and add a teeny bit of milk so it looks like coffee. With sugar.

Traditional chai making methods just seems like arseache.

and yea, sometimes I mix the loose tisanes with black tea.

I've got a 5 cup a day habit, but i mix it up with tisanes (technical name for herbal tea)

I've spent a bracing morning reading about Le Veilleurs, Schwaller de Lubicz, Synarchy and interwar occult fascist movements.

It's more fun than filling in a job application form, anyway.

This was spurred on by reading The Stargate Conspiracy, which is despite the name actually quite interesting and fairly grounded.

Essentially, the book asks the question "what the hell is going on with this New Age Egyptology fetish all of a sudden" (this was in the late 1990s) and comes away with some pretty disturbing conclusions.

It also includes our old friends The Nine, for those who read the notes from Sinister Forces that I posted.  Essentially, the books authors trace the origins of The Nine, whatever they may be, back beyond Andrija Puharich and to Schwaller de Lubicz, an academic with a side interest in mystical fascism...and possibly Crowley (of course).

They come away with the conclusion that someone is trying to hijack New Age beliefs, mixing them with apocalyptic, fundamentalist Christianity and using these beliefs to take quite deliberate aim at Muslims and blacks.  Whether that's the intelligence community, mystical fascists or even The Nine (assuming one believes they really exist) is left up for the reader to decide.

Unfortunately, you have to go through quite a bit on the internal politics of the pyramidiots and Cydonian conspiracy types to get to the good stuff.  But it's worth it.

Sounds interesting..

the key to good green tea is not using boiling water, but water that has been allowed to cool a bit, and do nevar oversteep.

I had a white tea with cherry flavours a while back that was fucking gorgeous.

I'm more of a flavoured black tea or herbal infusions kind of lass, myself but yea, I love tea generally, apart from bog standard builders black tea. if imma drink unflavoured black tea, I prefer a Assam, Ceylon or Darjeeling rather than blends.

I await the coroners report with interest.

Speaking of tea, in the last month or so I have developed a fanatical addiction to green tea, which I had formerly decided to hate. I just can't process all this change in my life.

if you brew it right, it's amazing. Brew it wrong, it's fucking disgusting.

are you using bags or loose leaf?

England is a horrible place. I've seen what those people are like. All chimneysweeps and chamberpots and teatime.

Fair, but it also gave us all of the best metal this wrong side of Scandinavia. It's closer to Ireland than Boston (so I'd be trading out one side of the family for another). Irish citizens can live there no problem (as evidenced by my dad living off the Crown due to disability). And again, stabler climate, with just the right amount of atmospheric misery to satisfy me.

Ah but there's that double tax, distance from Boston, and I get sick of tea pretty quick but have blood in my coffee stream (sorry chaps, your coffee is shite).

BUT THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF TEA.

HOW CAN YOU BE SICK OF TEA? Shit, son, I have at least 20 types of tea (and herbal infusions) both bagged and loose  all up in my kitchen right now and i have more in the mail coming to me.

I have a tea drawer. And a tea shelf.













I think I may need a tea intervention :s

Black tea has way more caffeine than coffee.
