Poets & Me

I read today in "How to be Idol" by Tom Hodgkinson with excellent illustrations by Rodrick Mills "Coffee is for winners, go-getters, tea ignorers, lunch cancellers, early risers, guilt-ridden strivers, money obsessives and status-driven lunatics. It is an evervating force. We should resist it and embrace tea, the ancient drink of poets, philosopers and meditators". Nuff said, I say "kettle on tea bags at the ready".

Sunday, 1 November 2009
