I suddenly have this thing for Earl Grey tea. I used to drink it in college. Yum. That citrus-y bergamot oil is like a drug for me. I should tell you that my mom's side of the family is very sensitive to drugs, especially caffeine. I drank full-strength Earl Grey in college but then wondered why I would sweat so much at -30 and why I had a hard time modulating my volume. "Hey Kate, WHAT CLASS do you have NEXT??!?!?" I realized, after a while, that I had the same issue my mom and her father have with caffeine. It works quickly and ferociously on us. I'll burn through all my caffeine in about 20 minutes and it will leave me cranky, sweaty, and irritated. I have the same issue with Novocaine, Sudafed, and Valium. When I go to the dentist, whole face is numb for several hours. Sudafed makes me feel like I'm floating 300 miles above my body and Valium hypes me up to the point where I'm almost screaming. Fun times for the doctor. But, where the hell was I going with this?? Oh yea, so I have been drinking DECAF Earl Grey tea for the last few nights. Even decaf seems to have enough zing to hype up. In that vein, I've decided to make four pencil skirts. I am using the same pattern I used before which is 09-2008-120. I realized, when I was doing my best of 2009 post, that I wear that skirt all the time. A pencil skirt doesn't take that much fabric and I had several small pieces that just needed to be used up. Tonight I cut them all out. Tomorrow, I'll interface and perhaps sew darts.
HOW DO YOU LIKE them apples?? Heee heee, it's not to the point where I'm yelling and sweating . . . yet.
