Catching my breath

Yesterday the law firm where I work did something that they never in their 182-year history have done: lay-offs. Unfortunately, I was one of the casualties. This was 100% totally and absolutely out-of-the-blue and I, together with those who left and those who remain, am still in shock.

I really should not surprised, though. Every day we read of more and more people across America losing their jobs. I just never thought it would happen to me.

A Tea Time Quiz

Thanks to fellow Britophile Melissa over at Smitten by Britain for information about a new SkyTV channel in the UK called Blighty. Unfortunately, no access to it here in America, but they do have a cool website and it was there I discovered a fun 20-question tea quiz. (There are a few other tea-related goodies there too, including tons of traditional British Afternoon Tea recipes, some with accompanying video.)

Teas Up! A Tea Time Quiz
One lump or two? With milk or without? However you like your tea, one thing's for sure – if you're British you probably drink at least three cups a day. But how much do you know about the nation's favourite cuppa?
Start the quiz here. (I got 16 out of 20 correct. How did you do???)
