Tired due to almost too much weekend.

Friday and Saturday during the day were low key. The excitement started with dinner with the LizRents at Terroni. Next was Dark Rave, getting to bed around 4:30am. I was up at around 8:30, and down in Chinatown for dim sum with olletho and crew for 10:30. By 2pm, I was at the Toronto Steampunk Society meetup for photoroaming the Distillery District. We are a bunch of hams. Also, steampunks + segways == hilarity. We are considering going back at some point and renting a pack of them. The five step rule was in effect for a good chunk of the roam - take five steps and another group of people with cameras materialize and take aim. My pics will be up... eventually. This set needs some photoshopping to insert the zeppelin and lasers.

Dinner at Fionn's rounded out the weekend. An early bed time produced extra sleep, though not quite enough - still wiped this morning.

On the plus side, I have learned a valuable skill - making weak tea. If I make tea with 1 tsp of leaves per cup, the tea is weak enough that I can still sleep at night. Before, my habit was to use 1 tbsp or more per cup, and I used to steep it longer.

Aw, wish I'd been able to make it out to the steampunk thing, but I had to work all day Saturday. :(

googling "steampunk segway" gets someone's odd little bike thingy. Weird, and distinctly missing any steam.

it'd be cool to pimp out a segway with brass fittings & stuff...

Other options - obviously, herbal infusions rather than tea; green or white tea instead of black, and decaffeinating your own tea.

Option #3 basically involves steeping the leaves for about thirty seconds, throwing out that liquor, then resteeping the same leaves in fresh water (add about 15-30 seconds to the second steeping, typically).

Yes, I know. Almost six months out of the teashop gig and I'm still a huge tea nerd. :(
