So there’s this contest going on over at http://www.portocupecoy.com. You write a blog posting or tweet about why you need a Porto Cupecoy vacation. And then they enter you into a draw for a Porto Cupecoy vacation. Porto Cupecoy being a marina villa on St. Martin. Which I so need. As I explained in my tweet:
$70,000+ of student loan debt is why *I* need a week in the lap of luxury!
Now I can has Caribbean vacation?
Hey, remember how I had a cracked teapot and I was all “I really need a new teapot before this one shatters and covers me in boiling hot tea” and you were all “you are totally going to wait until it shatters before you buy a new teapot, but you’ll be all covered in third degree burns from hot tea when you go buy said teapot”?
Well, I bought a new teapot:
Here it is, side by side with the old one which, as you can see, is still in one piece. One big ole cracked piece:
I like it because (a) it’s bigger, (b) it’s a nicer shade of green and (c) the spout doesn’t dribble when you pour the tea! I’d gotten used to always pouring my tea over the sink because the old one leaked like a mofo.
I bought it at Winners because I am cheap. And check this out – the tag says the brand is called “London Pottery,” but if you look at the bottom it says:
“designed” in Britian. But “made in China.” You know, the city of London, China.
