On the tea topic, when I take the stuff (I'm not a huge tea drinker. My boyfriend is, though, and has kind of pulled me into drinking it more than I usually would) and not just regular black/earl grey/orange pekoe swimming in milk and sugar, I drink peppermint tea. Doesn't need sugar, clears up your respiratory passages AND helps settle your stomach and helps you sleep. I frequently have problems with all three, so it's my miracle tea. XD

We made Spam Musubi last night. It is super delicious. <3

I think I might add it to the list of foods I want to prepare for cons since it's so easy to individually saran wrap them and carry them around.

Peppermint tea is a godsend. I'm also super into ginger tea right now, since I've got morning sickness ("morning" is a misnomer, it starts when I wake up and pretty much goes until I fall asleep at night) pretty badly and if it helps settle my stomach, I need to have it on me AT ALL TIMES.

I stayed off this thread for a week because I had gastric flu and evening thinking about food was dangerous - I come back and you're talking about tea?

I WILL NEVER LEAVE AGAIN.

My peach ginger green tea arrived today! Though I dunno if I'll have enough downtime before I head to work to drink it. Perhaps after work, then!

Currently my boyfriend and I are in love with pineapple salsa from Trader Joe's. Both times we've bought it, it was consumed in a single sit down with chips and Arrested Development. Two jars next time, perhaps!

I'd say that depends on which Star Trek. The Motion Picture, or Abrams'?

I liked the new Star Trek for what is was. Then again, I never was big on the Star Trek universe anyway.

I liked it to, but it wasnt a star trek film. At all. That was my biggest issue.

And the reference to Porthos put me into a mild fit of nerd-rage in the theatre. Thankfully I was surrounded by Trekkers, and a few Trekkies, so it was okay.

And with that you just reminded me to add Trekkies to our Netflix.

Food Topic: I may eat Wendy's tonight. It's okay; I'm America.

...PD, if you're reading this, don't forget to put the last Netflix DVDs in the mailbox tonight or tomorrow.

I really, really wish I didn't have to drive 40 minutes to get to the nearest Trader Joe's.

ETA: I'll see if I can figure out where in the car they wound up, SV. Enjoy your America.

I feel pretty spoiled because my relatively hippie county has a lot of Trader Joe's stores in it. The closest market to our condo is, in fact, a Trader Joe's. We're moving at the end of April though, so I really hope we'll still be close to one. We're also in love with their "Harvest Peach" juice right now.

I love tea. I drink it a lot since unlike coffee I don't put milk and sugar in it. So it's caffeine and not a lot of calories. Not to mention it's tasty
