Robot says hi to tea.



A photo from yesterday. This morning, I'm saying hi to new snow on all that beyond-the-window scenery.

IN THE COMMENTS: EDH says, referring to my idea for a new product:
Robot thought bubble: Whew! I'm so glad you "have a mug of hot liquid [to] hold onto it as needed" instead of "smooth metal devices that fit comfortably into various bodily orifices."
And I say:
Actually, that double-wall glass is bad for hand-warming. I recommend a nice ceramic mug.

Maybe the devices for orifice warming should be ceramic...
And then I think about Meade's handiwork. You saw it here in May 2009, on one of those beautiful days before we were married, when I visited him in his little house in Ohio, the one with what Bissage called the "nicely scrubbed stove top." It looked like this:



Reminisced about here.

If a robot does The Robot in front of a camera, is that some kind of Super-Selfie?

No wonder he's happy to see you.

Through Dense Jungles of Eyeglasses and Books and Expanses of Hardwood Floors we have Persevered, and -- Though we Have Lost Many -- it Now Stands before Us:The Legendary Tea Cup of El Dorado. Surely the Sun That Shines Through the Glass Upon Us is a Sign That Our Righteousness is True. We Shall Claim this Desktop in my Name and Lay Waste to All Who Would Be Fools Enough to Disagree -- Who Is With Me? Who Will Stand With Me and Protect This Precious Tea from the Savages?

A downside to Bodum Pavina- it fails to communicate the temperature of it's contents. A few guests have learned the hard way.

It's the problem with styrofoam cups too, which is why you have to sue McDonalds when you burn yourself on coffee.

Human Skulls make Fine Drinking Vessels when Polished. There is Nothing Better Than Drinking Tea from the Bones of the Vanquished, with Spoons Whittled from their Ribs. You Have to Fill in the Eye Sockets, However, or You Dribble. Those Who are of Wrath do Not Dribble. As Far as Orifices are Concerned, Begin with Femurs and Prepare to Be Bold.
