Like you I rarely use a pot, since I drink alone. I do like the better selection of loose tea so I have one of those "tea-eggs" and love it.

i prefer not to put the milk in for a good five minutes or so because i like the tea strong and once you add milk the teabag tends to stop giving out tea for some reason. also because i am impatient and it cools quicker if you wait before adding the milk.
Yup, very much the same attitude. Milk and two sugars for me, please!

My brother and I always complained that my Mom thought tea could cure anything. I used to hate it until at least high school and that changed completely. Now my love and I have been discovering different types of tea (that's right, we're the first ones to ever drink them ). He showed me this tea shop at a nearby mall that I thought was just amazing.

We have two tea infusers for loose leaf teas. It used to be only herbal teas for me but we've branched out. My current favorite is a cross between Rooibos and Earl Grey. Either is just made for milk and honey. We haven't continued exploring the green teas as much as I'd like. The last was Sencha (by Rishi). It just filled your whole mouth with flavor.

Cycling. That's about it I'm afraid.

200 miles/week, 25 races a year, more laundry and recovery sleep than I care to think about.

Watching bike racing, just for balance, ya know can't be too one dimensional.

Settlers of Catan around a table loaded with good friends and food I've prepared.

Reading with one or both of my children nearby.

Over the winter break I became the undisputed Yahtzee champion. You've been warned.

I love Settlers! A Belgian friend told me about it years ago and then a friend got it recommended and I've been hooked since then! Wonderfully social game!

Mountain biking (downhill and xc for those who care or know the differences)
Kayaking
Computers (vague I know but pretty much anything IT)
I enjoy reading, non-fiction, and more specifically scifi and fantasy, I am REALLY picky so I tend to reread authors
I have taken to writing recently, nothing specific but just writing to get things off of my chest. This new found set of relationships has opened up an emotional side to me which I haven't let go of since I was 14.

I like to make websites. Lots and lots of websites.

I love writing and have written some really great books, short stories, poems, songs, etc.

I really enjoy listening to people. In college I used to go to the Non Traditional Student Lounge or the International Student Lounge and just listen to random strangers and coax their stories out of them. (learned a lot more than I ever could have from all those professors and projects)
My partner and I so need a website to advertise his classes, pictures, preformances and hoops hehe what kind of services do you offer?
