Today to keep my mind busy I went to my favorite store to buy octopus. I am teaching myself sushi making skills. Okay, I am making octopus cucumber salad but it’s kind of like sushi. I cut. I eat.

After I get over the horror that SOMEONE has piped Christmas music into my wonderful Asian market I find Jesus has brought me a new tea section. I’m not talking a white girl tea section but this: purple plum flowers, lavender, bitter melon. These are in little clear bags so if you push your little white girl nose to the plastic you can smell things. Oh and there are these huge barrels of beautiful things I can’t pronounce that my whole head fit into.

The thing about me you should know, when I find something exciting I call over perfect strangers to share the experience. Yes I AM that lady in the tea section. At one point today I had three people in a barrel. Not bad for a days work.

And yes Rebecca Loudon I did buy you bitter melon tea for Christmas. Doesn’t that just sound lovely?

Shhhh...don't tell, but I am planning to gift people this season with these glass, see-through tea pots, and a special tea that when steeped, unfolds and flowers into brilliant outstretched fronds and blossoms.

So excited! Pssst..com'ere I wanna show you something cool!

Oh T can I be your friend? I want a clear pot of tea. I am throwing stuff on the wheel; the thing about clay is you can’t see out of it.

Yes Rebecca my dear. I think it is pirate tea.

Lee, trade you for some cheesecake;)

Cheeky. Very cheeky indeed! (Candles burning and cats are lightbulbed (in my head, at any rate) in your honor, btw.)

Please take the lightbulb off the cats. It humiliates them though they sparkle and can make nice Beethoven's Birthday decorations.
