Today is the Oscars, and I’m going – for the first time – to an Oscar “party”. That “party” part is stretched, after all, it will be 4 of us, flicking back and forth between the basketball game and the awards, though, cheese might be on the menu. Yes, we can party.
I don’t really care about the Oscars, to be honest, I’ve never cared about any award shows, but I do love hanging out with close friends. However, since we are having an Oscar party and I am competitive I created a form where we can input our answers before the awards to see who guessed the most correctly.
My Hopeful Winners
Not really sure how those will work out, but if I were to go by Mashable’s predictions and their voice of the people via Twitter then I have 50% correct. If I were to go by Foursquare’s checkins then I’m only good with my Inception choices.
In any case, I will enjoy the the companionable night and the cheese.
According to its Wiki page, the rooibos bush looks like a broom. The plant is used to make herbal tea. It has high levels of antioxidants.
Rooibos is pronounced ROY-boss. Rooibos is naturally caffeine free.
This week I discovered the Vanilla Rooibos Tea at Starbucks. A few of us were out to see movies (yes, plural) and someone wanted a decaffeinated drink, so we went to Starbucks and the barista suggested the Vanilla Rooibos Tea. Apparently it was good, so I decided to give it a try.
Starbucks describes it as, “an herbal blend of botanicals including rooibos, vanilla, sweet blackberry leaves, apples and peaches.” I think it’s heavenly.
Even the tea bag is pretty … I’m usually a fan of the Refresh Tea, but, if you want to change things up a bit, a little less minty, a little smooth, then the Vanilla Rooibos is the tea to drink. What’s a smooth drink you ask? Well, give it a try and you’ll see.
[this post is not sponsored by Starbucks, though, I’d gladly accept free drinks!]
This showed up in my RSS reader today, 20 Hilarious Vanity License Plates. Which made me think immediately of the pictures of vanity plates that I’ve seen around NYC. Some are funny, some are … strange; so here goes (and excuse the poor cellphone quality) –
10 Vanity Plates from around my city!
