Weeee Akira...

Wonder if there is Nelly Recchia summer camp? Wouldn't that be fun?

[[[[[ BlurstyMay+1 ]]]]]

Akira said...

I'm not sure if I could deal a third eye all summer, but it sounds fun!
Any idea who the woman with the mohawk is? I can't tell if she's just part of the performance or Recchia's assistant...

Akubi said...

Didn't she do some of Marilyn Manson's makeup?

I was checking out the rainbow Mohawk too... it would take a lot of upkeep but could be a nice spring hairdo...

Akubi said...

Somehow I just don't see that sort of Spring Hairdo going over well at the office.

Third eye for for the greenmarket...

Akubi said...

Did I mention the oolong shortage I've been encountering lately?

Akubi said...

Third eye for for the greenmarket...Is that a trick question? I don't see it...

Akubi said...

Anyway, since my sleep was constantly interrupted,I was feeling pretty grumpy this morning, but my milk oolong tea sort of took the edge off of things until I got annoyed by the fact that my oolong delivery from a new company I found online still hadn't arrived...
Well, it just appeared in my mailbox - all the way from China - with interesting stamps on the box. Woohoo!

Akubi said...

Even in China, they seem to be out of the milk oolong I've been obsessed with so I ordered the following new selections and old standby's:

Huang Jin Gui
Dong Ding Oolong
Tie Guan Yin
Lin Hai Pan Hao

I've never tried Dong Ding Oolong, but I like the name.

Akubi said...

I just wish it was Ding Dong Oolong.

Kitty said...

Akubi... It's cool about your teas... yummy...

The teas sound interesting but "ding dong oolong" sounds like a Hostess cake...

What is milk oolong like?

Kitty said...

oh... don't you see her "3rd eye"

maybe I'm too **** obtuse silly****

tea from China is cool... they are tea crazy there...

Mine That Edgar!

RainbowMohawkFlowy(V) said...

Weeee... I had rather have this than the rainbow mowhawk...Congrats to Edgar's pony "Mine the Bird"!!!

edgar said...

yep, mine that bird. I couldn't get up the gumption, nor muster the $, to make it down to the otb. i had planned to bet the four longest odds horses due to track conditions. oh well, i probably would have wasted the $ on slots before I even got to the window. Sorry I missed fnf, there's some real nice ass on that post.

Sorry, some sad news today:

Rights Groups Condemn Iran for Execution

Kitty said...

RIP Delara...

I would like to imagine the Third Eye Goddess kicking some serious ass for Delara today.

edgar said...

If I was a woman (or man for that matter) living in Iran I would be glad I was dead. I'm not sure that's how she felt about it, just sayin'...

DarkAgesFlowy(V) said...

Hi Edgar...

It's like Iran is in the Dark Ages...

Maybe studying that period would yield some solutions...

Akubi said...

Hi Everyone,

So many things to address and Sunday chores to do, I'll just focus on the tea for now.

Milk Oolong has an unusually sweet and creamy taste and aroma, but that wasn't in my current delivery.

Excited by my new finds, I've been drinking a ton of tea since I awoke this morning and tasted everything except the familiar Tie Kuan Yin I'm saving for work.

Brief thoughts and findings:

Currently, Dong Ding Oolong is my favorite.
Dong Ding had a rather mild smelled, but an unbelievably honey-like taste.

Huang Jin Gui was a close second with the smell of fresh Osmanthus leaves and the taste of the buds.

Lin Hai Pan Hao is a rather mild, young white tea that could probably be better appreciated later in the day so I'll have to revisit it.

Kitty said...

Neat Akubi... tea tasting... I wish I could taste them too...

I think I would like milk oolong especially...

Do you know where these teas where grown?

edgar said...

Hi Akubi!

Akubi said...

Hi Kitty,
Yes, the milk oolong is my favorite.
The Milk and Ding Dong Oolong are grown in Taiwan and I think the others are from Anxi, China.

BTW, I just located a Hipster Grifter paper toy!

HipsterGFlowy(V) said...

I wanna be the "hipster grifter"...

With cuter hair -- of course -- !

And do yoga all day and ride my bike... and drink Milk and Dong Ding tea from Taiwan...

Akira said...

But the Hipster Grifter has been caught!

UngrifterFlowy(V) said...

uhmmm... I don't want to be a "hipster grifter"... I thought she was just hanging around on other people's couches...

She's a liar ~~~!!! I don't want to be a liar...~~~!!!

Now she'll have to go to jail... she'll probably try and be a celebrity when she comes out...

(I do want to ride my bike, do yoga and be a hipster)
