    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Sir Cyr and I were using masks to drive through north CA and southern OR. The smoke there is hideous. Is it bad to the north too? We went through areas so thick that the sun turned red and you could stare at it.

    That sounds repulsive. If I want to drink syrup, I will go slurp maple syrup. If I want tea, it should resemble tea!

    Some green tea is. The Japanese greens tend to be more vegetal in flavor (spinachy) not necessarily lawn but closer than from other regions. Tasting like grass is often a sign of overbrewing on greens, or too hot of water. Iced tea without sugar is good. Most are just syrup and that makes me sad.

    Mmm yunnan gold tea is lovely. It is one of my favorite non-breakfast black teas. I need something less nice in the morning though. Yunnan tea is yum. No sugar or anything with that, and get multiple steepings!

    Fine loose leaf is a great thing, but I wait until I am awake to appreciate it. Bonus: there are multiple loose leaf tea shops a short bus ride from where I'll be living. Yay! I think this method is called Outstandingly British. The settings on my kettle are quite easy and add no complications.

    True. I do have a kettle with multiple settings. I will have to see what is ideal. Black tea should be more okay with boiling, but not the white or green teas. I don't mind slight bitter, but scalded can be too much. Then again, morning tea is not my good tea. Morning tea just needs to be tea. Liptons however never counts as tea. Eww.

    My spring mix (one pack with pink and white flowers) arrived at my mom's place. They look nice!

    Earl Grey isn't my go-to, but English Breakfast is in the morning. Usually I just have one scoop of raw sugar in it. However, moving to sea level means that my water will be hotter. I think I will adopt adding cream to my tea in the morning because it is tasty and will help cool it down for drinking.

    I really like these and hope I can swing at least one of them. Moving is a money sink though, ack!

    LTPK - MSP HD = ?

    I am just hoping stuff like Dragon Blue and Dragon White get swapped over. With so many colors, I can't say I really need the whole HD line but some are quite nice.

    Do oatmeal cookies count as cereal? I think my oatmeal cookies are healthier than my oatmeal in porridge form.

    I still sometimes worry about burning myself while draining noodles, although less from water and more from steam nowadays. Perhaps I should worry about the water since I'm now at sea level. Hrmm. Sir Cyr will need to remember to not put his hand in boiling water to grab noodles to test. I hope your kiddo heals fast @Froggy the Great.

    Honey bunches of oats, followed by Smacks and Honeycomb. Multigrain Cheerios are pretty good too. On topic of oatmeal and grits and cream of wheat: these are vehicles to put brown sugar into my face. I do put a tiny pinch of salt in the water for oatmeal, because otherwise it tastes bland and boring. I wouldn't call it "salted" in the sense of flavor though. I also add absurd amounts of cinnamon, cloves, and allspice. My dad and I have this habit with the hot cereals.... make the mound of the hot cereal, with a little crater in the center. Put butter in the crater. Load up on the brown sugar (the purpose of homemade oatmeal is brown sugar, not health. Just give up any pretenses). Then make a moat of cream around the mound. Smash it up as desired. I mix from there. Sidenote: I'm currently eating instant maple & brown sugar oatmeal, because I don't have a kitchen but I do have an electric kettle. I do not add extra sugar to presweetened hot cereal. And adding fruit to cereal is gross. Eww. Fruit is good, but leave it on the side please.

    I'm just hoping that Dragon Blue makes its way into a different line, like the other Dragon X colors. I don't have too many from the HD line in general, and Dragon Blue is the only one that I really have any specific attachment to (base color of my lion bust).

    Uhh... I used to go galloping up hills on a fat and slippery horse with a clunky gait. Without a saddle. Without a bridle - I just had the reins tied to either side of a halter. I guess the horse is the witness to that.

    I can see it being a garnet dragon. You have those scales looking pleasantly rounded; garnets form d24s, which look like little balls when small

    Aww snap. Mine may or may not be arriving in Oregon to my mom's place before I take my stuff from her garage to the great north. Eh, if so, no big deal. But I hope they get there before the 14th!!
