My new years resolution/latest tentative plan has a new partner in crime:
I was able to use a gift certificate to buy this new Middle Kingdom tea pot yesterday, and its beauty makes me want to drink tea. Is that good or bad? It also helps that I'm stocked up with some delicious teas: the licorice peppermint is my favorite. The best part about this tea pot is that it can serve more than one person, so I'm ready for company!
