Thursday Tea (Oct. 27): Offshore

Sorry for the lateness! My desktop started running really hot, so much so that it was shutting down/freezing/doing other horrid things. Luckily my new laptop showed up yesterday, so after about 12 hours to trying to make Ubuntu work/get all my files situated/etc. I’ve switched over to using it. I think it’s mainly okay now, and so I don’t have to panic about the desktop needing a new fan (or two) for a while. Instead I just have to worry about the files I lost during a backup mishap! Ugh.

It’s a little weird typing on a laptop again, especially this laptop. It’s pretty big, 15″ across, and the keyboard is a full-sized one with a number pad and everything. I keep hitting numbers instead of “enter,” haha! Anyway: books. And tea.

The book: I’ve been trying to read Offshore for about three or so years now (I think), and I never made it past page 20. I don’t know why, as it’s a good book and not even that big of one, but I just haven’t been able to get all the way through it before now. I think I can do it this time, though, I really do. And if I can’t I’m going to just get rid of it– trying five times to read a book is more than enough for anyone, don’t you think?

Even if it IS a book about people living on houseboats (my secret love! Not so secret now, though).

The tea: I’ve basically become attached to English Breakfast at the hip. Nothing else looks good. Nothing else catches my attention. Everything is English Breakfast and it’s delicious (if somewhat boring).

Do they go together? Yes, actually! I mean, I’m only two pages in Offshore, but it’s set in England and English Breakfast tea always goes with books set in England. It just does.
