Things And Such

1. Twinings Prince of Wales Tea

I have become one of those pretentious assholes who drinks tea.  Congratulations to me.  And I've been sucking this stuff down like it is mother's milk.

2. Anna's Ginger Thins

And everyday when I'm being a pretentious asshole, I am usually dunking these delicious gingerbread cookies into my tea. Really good, you guys.

3. This mug

This is my new pretentious asshole tea mug.  Or it will be when it arrives.  There's just something about a deer smoking a pipe next to the word 'tits' that makes me happy.

4. The Hobbit

I'm currently in countdown mode for Nerd Christmas (aka the day The Hobbit movie comes out in theaters), and in the meantime I'm drinking a lot of tea while re-reading this.  It's just as good as you remembered it.

5.  This short film/play

This is Sea Wall by Simon Stephens, starring Andrew Scott (of Sherlock/Moriarty fame). I hesitate adding this to this flippant list, to be honest, because this film (and my feelings about this film/play) deserves it's own epic blog post.  But if you find yourself with 30 free minutes and a desire to have your heart ripped out of your chest, kicked around the floor, and then gently placed back into your chest so that you will find yourself for days afterwards thinking about life, and God, and love, and the sea, and what everything you've ever thought about those things means.... well then maybe go here and rent or purchase it (it is only available to view online). Major feelings ghost material, you guys.


  1. Martin Freeman!!!! And man I love the mug, is it a pretty big one? I want one, all you need now is a moustache, a pipe and a monocle!

    1. I love Martin Freeman... I want to make him pancakes and serve him tea in my tits mug.

  2. The Hobbit. I loved that book when I read it senior year in high school. I haven't yet, but soon I'll be pulling it back out to reread before the movie comes out.

    And I feel like that is the BEST pretentious asshole mug I have ever seen. I mean that too. The best. Ever. Like, I don't even like tea like that, but I am tempted to start drinking it anyways just to have an excuse to get that mug.

  3. Where did you find this mug? I saw the image on a painting but can't find it anywhere.

  4. where did you the tits mug?

  5. Please, this mug, where did it come from??? My cousins birthday is this month and she has been saying "tits" out of frustration for yyyeeeaaarrrsss. She also has a mug addiction. HALP!!!

    1. Hello! This is the Etsy shop where I bought the mug, but I don't see this particular mug in their shop right now. Might be worth messaging them to ask though!
