JUST OUT OF

Steeped Off My Feet!!

CURIOSITEA... By Archana Pyatt

Across the table the one I adore Beautiful, intelligent witty and more

I love the way she adores me Who would have thought over a cup of tea!

Our hearts collided with a thunderous boom As if we were the only ones in the room

I felt out of place with boots and hat But knew in my heart I’d be back. by James Perry Simon

Archana Pyatt is a true tea enthusiast. Her passion for tea has served as a platform for writing, traveling and finally opening her own tea room. Serenitea Tea Room, located in Sugarland, TX is not only a place for lunch and Afternoon Tea but also a venue to share the knowledge of tea and all things related.

Love Gravity Cup Gravity Cup by Xu54 is presented as an equilibrated cup standing its bottom edge on the saucer. I think the balancing theme is supported with the dependence graph, where we can see that love (in spite of the cup name) is not dependence on the gravity and some “r”. Love dependence on l1 and l2. I don’t know what or who are l1 and l2, but love is more when the two “l” (love hearts?) get bigger. By the way, it could be good idea for one of the valentine’s day gifts.

It happened over tea… A ruggedly handsome cowboy…with his Tony Lama full quill ostrich boots, starched Wrangler britches, George Strait blue solid shirt, and a Rodeo King black felt hat… didn’t exactly strike me as the tea sipping type. An unassuming backdrop, this casual tea room, caused the universe to shift for two people – from such different worlds but brought together over a pot of tea. All eyes were riveted on him – his confident stride and casual charisma oozing from his very being. There he sat with his big strong hands curled around a dainty pink floral teacup and his face half hidden under his hat as he bowed down his head to take a sip. Casual conversation about tea started a friendship that would blossom into a storybook romance. I found love over a cup of tea!
