The snow up against he building was not there about three hours ago. The wind is 30+MPH 16 degrees F (feels like -2) and the snow is going to be about 13 to 19 inches by the morning. So on that note, when was the next meet again??? I want to come back for another visit... :blink:

That is just Karma for leaving me up north while you go hanging out in SoCal!  :D

You use the tea from those special leaves to clear the wax out of your ears and rejuvenate the ear canal giving you the ability to distinguish different levels of 24 bit and DSD recordings.

That actually sounds like a lot of fun :D Would you happen to have a suggestion or two?

But let me know if you find a source for a good brick. The loose leaf Pu-erh is BS.

 

Little Saigon is literally around the corner for me (at least on the weekend). If you have any suggestions for shops in that area, I would truly appreciate a reference :D

Well, since you asked, here is my daily work ritual...

 

- Arrive at work. Hit the power button on the laptop, and the power button on my headphone amp.

- Grab a new paper cup, and several empty tea bags.

- Open the drawer with my tea selection inside, and choose 3 different types at random.

- Stuff 3 tea bags with 3 random teas. Put one inside the paper cup, set the others aside for the next round.

- Log into the laptop, and let it log in (this takes at least 5 minutes).

- While the laptop is logging in, wander over to the hot water dispenser, and fill up my cup with water.

- Say hi to a few people as I wander back to my desk, avoiding my boss if possible.

- Sit down, put my headphones on, pick a random playlist on my ipod, open up my email, sip my tea, and begin work.

 

So, my daily ritual involves both headphones and tea. I do my best to keep the tea in my cup, and the headphones on my ears.

No suggestions right off the top of my keyboard. I was just fixin' to suggest asking purrin and seen you did already. But I'm cafeside often and often on the lookout!
