||the challenge - how high can i stack pyramid t-bags|
|Nicey replies: Yay for tetrahedra.|
||Having read your tea section on your fabulous website i felt compelled to reveal some nasty tea habits by members of my famlily.|
My mother-in-law-to-be makes a nice(?) cup of tea by first pouring milk in the cup, then adding sugar, finally, in goes the tea-bag to all be topped off with the boiling water. How possibly can her tea brew?
My chilean/italian aunty uses boiled milk in her tea.
My granny has a breakfast of a bowl of tea into which she adds broken-up jacobs cream crackers. The result as you can guess is highly sloppy, messy and surprisingly smelly!
Many thanks for making my lunchtime internet browsing sessions more fun.
|Nicey replies: Good grief!|
I was at first delighted to find your site, but then deeply saddened that there are no teasmades on it (sob) other than a recommendation from a visitor to my website (how perfectly charming of her!) and a reply of dubious taste about the obsessiveness of teasmade enthusiasts (somewhat less charming).
I should point out that not all teasmades have alarms, they are perfectly safe (yes that EU thing was just a nasty urban legend)and not all teasmade users use them in bed.
I will quote from a 1955 Goblin advert which might stir your sympathy:
"For five years Mrs Taylor has been a confirmed invalid. That meant waiting until her daughter came home before she had tea. Now Mary leaves Goblin Teasmade ready so that her mother only has to switch on and there's a fresh cup of tea to help pass the long afternoons."
"Mrs Riley often missed the most exciting bit of the Television play whilst she was out in the kitchen making tea for the interval. But now, just a touch of a switch a few minutes beforehand, and tea is made automatically. It's equally helpful for bridge parties and social evenings."
There now, doesn't that make you feel better?
|Nicey replies: Sheridan,
You don't need us to tell you that you and everybody on your site are all Teasmade bonkers. Still here's an extra big NiceCupOfTeaAndASItDown Hoorah!! for all of you.
Perhaps your techie boys can design a teasmade module for the next British Beagle mission to Mars, that way all those American rovers could drive over and they could all have a lovely cuppa, and a chat about rocks. They would have to bring their own NASA biscuits, probably Fig Newtons would do.
McVities Milk Chocolate Digestive Review
|What an interesting site and nothing but pleasure! I can almost taste the biscuits as they're discussed. |
What about views on dunking and more importantly, HOW to dunk properly. I like McVIts milk chocolate digestives, two together, choccy side in, and DUNK, the choc just oozes out. So yummy!
Foxs Party Rings Review
|How would my son's 5th birthday party have gone without Party Rings!!! He was begging for them to be included on the party menu for weeks. |
We played the following party game with them: evenly tie (gotta tie or they'll all slide into the middle) 4 Party Rings onto a long piece of string. Get a person/parent/friend to hold each end, and ask 4 contestants to try to eat a biscuit without using their hands! Whoever eats a whole biscuit first is the winner (but the others are too, as everyone gets to finish their Party Ring).
