Probably just as well, then! :twisted:

Me thinks cady wants to see blood. A noble beast, a stag like creature…me, prostrate, felled by a Palinesque Ange. Sorry to disappoint, but we never came to blows. As soon as she started squealing, I let her take the laptop.

Well yeah, Stag Larsson. Seeing the two of you clutching the laptop thus, the lady with a murderous gleam in her eye, and you with your jaw set in determination, I was kinda hoping for some freakin' blood. :D

And who knows what's really inside them bottles of, um, tea. I mean. Could be blood. :D
Hmm. I think I might have watched one Buffy episode too many. :oops:

I have a wife and 2 kids that I can only attribute to a wiggle, a giggle, and the realization that she was out of my league so I might as well be happy with her as a friend. 26 years marriage later, I can't imagine life without her. -Me 10/7/09

This thread was bit of fun at first. That's why I gave the young couple that opened the shop, a link to it, and invited them to view. Sorry I did now.
Thanks

I hope we haven't contributed any tension or difficulty for yourself, Angela or CoffeeFix.

Nom,
I'm in over reaction mode, ignore me.
Rest assured, you and the others have more than contributed to the twin purpose of the thread. Wishing Gareth and Claira good luck with the launch of CoffeeFix and flying Scriv’s flag, whilst having a laugh.

Aw, Vic! Relax! It really doesn't read like anything more than a passing quip. And if you may have noticed, elsewhere on the forum there's a monstrous active thread full of manic tea-philia and exotic Chinese names that Mark may have just jumped from to this one. So, visit the shop again, accept the possibility of being strewn with wet tea leaves, and get on with having a good time.

Vic, it was intended as a joke, and rather at your expense based on the photo, as the jars in the photo don't look to me as if they contain tea and the bottles certainly don't ... so I'm truly sorry if it has caused you any hardship with the people who have opened the shop.

In apology, I will see if I can send them and you a small sample of teas from here, through a certain other member of this forum that I have reason to believe will be coming your way in the not-too-distant future.

I have been following it. I had planned on seeing if all/any of the funny tea words, had any resonence for the lovely Claira. So, visit the shop again, accept the possibility of being strewn with wet tea leaves, If Claira is as ruthless as she is lovely, it won't be wet tea leaves, it'll be more like: reduced to a quivering wreck in front of a sizeable bunch of coffeeshopites. and get on with having a good time. I may be walking in fear for the foreseeable future.

Wait. I think I missed something. You guys with your multi-lingual skills already have my head spinning and now I am worried that something bad happened while I was looking. Yet I can't figure out what it was.

Mr X, do you have tea shipping capabilities? It won't be long before I am hurting for a fix. And since my dealer is easily (and properly) preoccupied I need to find a new source.

Since I'm going to be shipping myself in the near future, I am planning on shipping some tea along with me ... as above.

I'm sure, just as s/he-who-shall-not-be-named could send you some, I'm sure I can arrange something, but a more formal way like that will have to wait till I get back here in mid-February.
