Morning Thoughts / by laurel

This, a natural result of Image Googling "Tea misto."

1. I know I risk sounding like the cretin that hides under the algae under the fungus growing under a rock, but guys, did you know that you can make lattés like the ones those cuh-raaazy coffee swillers make, but with tea instead? Leave it to Urth on Melrose to enlighten me. Now I can't get enough of them. Black tea misto. VENTE! NOW! I don't even know if I'm spelling those words correctly, that's how out of touch I am with the general coffee culture. 

2. iTunes 8 Genius sidebar. What are our thoughts on this, team? Yea or Nay? I'm going to give a preliminary "Yea!" for the simple fact that I've made a couple of playlists so far using Genius and already today I've discovered two songs ("Humble Peasants" by The Most Serene Republic, and "Baltimore" by Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks) that A) I didn't know I had, and B) I happen to love immensely and obsessively. Already. And it's only 9:30 a.m.  

But then again, that might just be the caffeine from my misto

Again, "tea misto" returns dubious results at best.
