Thursday Tea is a weekly meme hosted by yours truly. To play along, all you need is some tea, a book, and the will to answer some very simple questions: what tea are you drinking (and do you like it)? What book are you reading (and do you like it)? Tell us a little about your tea and your book, and whether or not the two go together.
The tea: Um. Does a Tripleberry Julius from OrangeJulius count?
There is a flaw in my plan for this meme in that it is way too hot for tea most nights. Damn.
The book: I’m currently about two hours into a Discworld audiobook, Pyramids (read by Nigel Planer). It’s hilarious! Though the desert images (it’s mostly set in a pseudo-Egypt) makes me feel a little dehydrated.
As I can’t find a picture of the audiobook here instead is a picture of Terry Pratchett, the author:
And a summary of the book:
‘Look after the dead’, said the priests, ‘and the dead will look after you’.
Wise words in all probability, but a tall order when you have just become the pharaoh of a small and penniless country whose largesse – and indeed treasury – is unlikely to stretch to the building of a monumental pyramid to honour your dead father. And particularly when your only visible means of support is a recently acquired qualification from the Guild of Assassins where running a kingdom and basic financial acumen were not prerequisites for course entry…
Do they go together? Honestly, at this point I think anything cool and refreshing (and fruity) goes with every book I’m reading when I drink it.
What are you drinking/reading this Thursday?
