Gratuitous whining post

This weekend I bought a tin of jasmine tea from Wishes Brew tea room. I assumed the small tin held about 3 oz of loose leaf tea, which would brew roughly 20-30 cups of tea. Instead, when I opened it today I found that it contains ten tea bags. No where on the packaging does it say what its contents are, apart from listing the ingredients as green tea and jasmine petals. I feel very ripped off.

Dude, that is seriously annoying. If there isn't a bag count, I always assume I'm getting loose leaf. I'd be miffed too.

I know, right?! From now on I'm going to be more wary and make sure it says "loose leaf" so I know for sure. I should probably always check the net weight, too. Ah, well. Hind sight.

Indeed.

Oh! So, I read over a few of your posts before friending you (as you do, right?), and saw that you'd read Cindy Pon's book! Eee! I got to meet her in Oct, and she talked about Chinese mythology stuff (and nine-tailed foxes), and was just generally very cool. :)

I hope you don't mind, but I'm a NaruSaku type. I'm really trying not to get into the Hinata hate thing (since it's sooooo anti-Naruto to me. totally goes against that kid's creedo), and figure the best way to do that is to be connected to someone who ships differently than me, and is sane. Also, dude! FRUIT'S BASKET!!! Your Kyon icon sealed your awesomeness for me. :)

Neat! I enjoy reading her blog, but sadly I missed her when she came to a convention in my town last November, as I happened to be away visiting family at the time.

Yup, I caught on to the fact that we support different ships. But I basically agree with your reasoning about staying connected to sane shippers from the opposing team. I'm sure we can keep discussions friendly. :) Speaking of discussions, you should consider joining narutoforadults.

Absolutely. :)

And, good call on that com. Looks like a good one.

Man, getting obsessed with new things IS SO AWESOME, but I feel like I've developed a whole new crazy side to myself. :P
