Thursday Tea (August 4): Elliot and the Goblin War

The book: It’s so fucking hot in my apartment, y’all. My back is sticking to my computer chair (through the SHIRT, even!) and all the energy has gone out of me. So let’s make this quick.

I’m reading Elliot and the Goblin War, a freebie book I picked up from Amazon the other day (it’s still free, btw). It’s cute, it’s funny, I’m enjoying it. It’s got that near-surrealism I like in children’s books, and if I can muster up the strength to do more than stare at the ceiling, I’ll probably finish it today.

The tea: I’m drinking iced tea. Did any of you really think I was going to be drinking a hot beverage when it feels like all the good parts of myself have been sweated out?

Do they go together? No. I’m pretty sure goblin and brownies and pixies and whatever don’t drink iced tea, although maybe Elliot would if he was desperate enough. I don’t really know any 11-year-olds who liked iced tea, though. Do you?

Other tea drinkers

The Book Gatherer is drinking “good old gumboot tea” and reading The Rhinestone Button!

(Leave a link to your TT post in the comments and I’ll add you to the tea drinkers list!)

Also there’s a new reader poll up in the left sidebar. If you could take the time to vote I’d appreciate it.

  1. Ewww. Sorry it’s so hot at your apartment. 🙁 Can’t you go somewhere else to cool off?

    I’m drinking passion fruit tea lemonade and reading Middleworld by J&P Voelkel.

    1. I absolutely HATE sweating. I can’t wait until it gets cooler around here. Luckily I don’t have to go outside that much!
