Another One Bites The Dust

Those who know me know that I'm a serious tea drinker. I'm talking addictive tendencies. I suspect I may have been Earl Grey in a former life.

My morning caffeine jolt comes from hot tea - and it was while I was making a travel mug of Republic Of Tea's Ginger Peach that I experienced a death in the family.

The lid to my travel mug shattered when I tried to snap it on.

OK, so it's only a travel mug - but it was my favorite travel mug. I got it at the RWA conference in Denver in 2002 from author Elizabeth Boyle. She had what I consider one of the greatest promo items I'd ever received. A white travel mug emblazoned with the cover art to One Night Of Passion.

When I saw Boyle again at RWA in Reno this past July I told her how much I loved that giveaway and how I used it several times a week. She mentioned she no longer had one for herself (I seem to recall a muttering about her husband).

Now mine is gone. Wahhhhhhh!

That stinks. I am a caffeine addict myself--coffee in the morning, tea at night (preferably Lapsang Souchoung. I like it dark and smoky, just like I like my romance heroes)--and I have special cups allocated for each type of drink. OCD? Crazy? Maybe. But I know how important your favorite ______ is, no matter what it is.
