    Ha, I do this! That is, I have a habit of looking up words that I *think* I know the meaning of in an online dictionary before including them in a blog post. About 30% of the time, they reveal themselves to have connotations I don’t want.

    There’s that kombucha reference again! By happy coincidence I’ll be in Melbourne this week! YAY. Perhaps kombucha will fall in my path. I would happily try the alcoholic ginger beer but would have to stop drinking champagne and I don’t know that that will happen. Celery is a vile substance, and I can’t imagine trying the celery drink, but could do the spinach and mango version. I have watched the movie- it was interesting, but I haven’t been inspired to go on a 60 day juice fast, although I’m sure it would do me good. Nice that you can use thunderstorms as a bit of a break. Are you enjoying the Game of Thrones?

    Yay you’re reading Clash of Kings! I’m still 3/4 of the way through Dance With Dragons because I know the next book won’t be out until 2015. Making it last!! 😀

    I actually really like ginger in juices….not on its own though which is why I’ve never been a big fan of ginger beer. But this looks good 🙂

    Yeah! Mojo rocks – I love the ginger one. Zing zing zingy.

    My Archie like alcoholic cider and ginger beer drinks. I’m more of a fruit drink person than a vegetable drink person. The khaki colour of vegetable drinks doesn’t win me over. Starbucks seems like a great place to park yourself during a rain storm xx

    That is indeed one of the pleasures of traveling I reckon … Except in Japan I found it rained many times but rarely did we find a cosy coffee shop to cosy away in. They were mostly small and crowded. We found a few but not many. How I wished on those occasions for an English pub or cosy, roomy coffee shop.

    As for all those weird drinks.just give me a cool, dry or butteryChardonnay and I’ll be happy.

    I was so far behind – I had to go back and read several of your posts. Yet I’m not the one with limited internet access!
    I love reading about your travels. 🙂
    I’ve been thinking about reading Game of Thrones. I believe A Clash of Kings is in that series? You’re obviously enjoying the series?

  10. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I so rarely drink cool / flavoured drinks that your first four products are completely new to me. However, the last picture connected just perfectly with my soul 🙂 I just finished the third book and am branching off to other reading for a while, but any book with a coffee in an armchair is wonderful.

    Hehe now do people often get your name wrong when sending you things? I would have thought your name would be fairly regular? 🙂

    Yay for creating a fancy Starbucks drink 🙂 I totally approve! My coworkers always make fun of me for ordering everything starting with, “decaf, soy….”. Yours sounds like a great one for curling up with an FANTASTIC book. Oh man, obsessed with that series. When will he publish the next one??

    holing up in a bookstore while it rains outside sounds glorious to me! I laughed when I saw the crabbies bottle because e used to love crabbies green ginger wine. The veg juice sounds interesting and I am still in the dark about kombucha – must try some

    So glad you’re livin it up Sugar Twin! Gosh, they do need better cafes up there don’t hey. Though what they lack in supreme coffee, they make up in a gazzilion other oisome nibbles.

    I a huge fan of ginger beer – so good in summer.

  15. Vien

    I love green stuff in my juices! Especially celery ;P I would definitely enjoy the lean mean & green one!! Sounds like you’re really enjoying your time!! Have fun dear 😀

  16. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Ooooo…lemon kombucha sounds like delicious awesomesauce!

  17. Monique

    You’re certainly doing it right 🙂

  18. Debi

    Good book choice! 😉

    Oh I love Crabbie’s. I had it at a beer festival back in April and have only found it on the shelves at a store once since then (and it was $$$ as it is an import). Delicious over crushed ice and fresh squeezed lime! Why don’t people send me booze?!

    Glad you are having a great time over here. Still waiting with bated breath for your trip to Boston.

    Also, I have still yet to try kombucha. Dare I say I’m a little bit afraid of its supposed-likeness to vinegar? While I enjoy vinegar quite a bit, I’m too tight with my money to spend so much on something I might just not be able to stomach.

  20. leaf (the indolent cook)

    Ah, I remember mentioning that very same kombucha in my odds and ends post awhile ago. I haven’t tried the ginger beer and juices, though, will keep an eye out…

  21. Emma

    I just got a new scoby yesterday!! I’m back in kombucha business:)

    You and your libations. I would probably have gone ahead and used it. There are other definitions, after all. Right? Even if not, maybe YOU can be the deity.

  22. penny aka jeroxie

    I reckon I need some of that drink and lots of it now

  23. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    Wahhh it’s all so unique hehe I wanna try some Kobucha too! It seems so healthy and good for you 😀
