I'm A Lumberjack and I'm OK

Alright, I know what you're thinking.  "Tea?!?  Are you kidding?  Wayne, I thought you were a man!"  Yes, I drink tea, and I'm proud of it.  So proud, in fact, I bought this shirt from


Tea! the gentleman's coffee

When you think tea, you probably either have images of British people sitting around drinking with fine china, wearing fancy clothes, and eating scones, all while with an extended pinky.

No, when I drink tea, I drink with my friend Bubba.

Bubba - he's the one on the right

52 ounces of goodness!  I know this isn't the preferred method, but in our house Mr. Coffee has been repurposed into Mr. Tea ("I pity da fool!").  The first pot of the morning fills up Bubba, and then a second infusion of the leaves is used for iced tea.

I could go into all the benefits of tea over coffee, and the differences and non-differences black vs. green tea, but not today.  Gotta save something for future posts.

In case you're wondering about the title, you're obviously not a Monty Python fan.


  1. I like them both. Coffee wakes me up in the morning and hot tea soothes me at night. And there's nothing better in hot summer weather than a big glass if icy cold tea--no sugar, thanks!

  2. Welcome to the blogosphere. Love the Bubba "cup" I'm all about a nice cup of tea late in the morning in a pretty cup with a saucer.

  3. Thanks for stopping by. I guess you now have the complete sister collection of comments. I love tea. However, I tend to drink it later in the day, or when I'm under the weather, or when I need something soothing. Good idea for a blog!

  4. By the way, everytime I see "I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK" I can't help but think of Joe Jeckel and Cinderfella! Were you in it when he sang that? I think Scott Plunkett won as a nerd that year!
