With all this discussion of the LJ revival, I have been planning to write more here. I still post a lot across various media but Twitter and Facebook are horrendous for finding stuff beyond a few days/hours back and I would really like to have more of a record of who I am and what I am doing.

I realised a big stumbling block to posting here is that I post stuff-on-my-mind/rants to FB and the more personal thoughts posted to Twitter. And the stuff that’s left feels a bit too introspective/self-indulgent to put on here, especially when it is the only post on a page.

To combat this, I am going to try and pick up SFred’s format of posting diary entries about what I am doing each week and also to remember Frightened’s useful tag “Livejournal is self-obsession, honey” when I feel I am being to self-indulgent. After all, no-one is obliged to read this stuff ;)

I also plan to copy long posts I am proud of from Facebook as a personal archive.

1. How do you like your coffee?
Coffee doesn't like me, it gives me stomachache. But before that, I drank it white with two sugars.

2. How do you like your tea?
White, one sugar, not too strong. In extreme circumstances (i.e. Lack of milk), black with two sugars.

Occasionally mint tea, green teas or fruit teas. I also drink naked varieties of black tea but I don't know if I can really tell the difference.

3. What's your favorite late night beverage?
It's almost always going to be tea. Possibly hot chocolate, with at least 5 heaped tsps of powder in.

4. If you could only drink one thing for the next week, what would it be?
Tea definitely!

I started drinking tea regularly when studying at school and there's a very strong mental association between the taste of hot tea and the feeling of getting down to work. At work, getting up to make tea also serves as a natural break when working. I try to use it to refocus when I have been distracted but that is less effective.

5. If you were on vacation, what would be the first thing you'd drink to celebrate?
Possibly red wine, possibly something sweet and alcoholic but tea is a strong contender here too.
