What Does Tea Cozy Sound Like?

What does Tea Cozy look like? My photo is at my seldom used MySpace page. Well, this is me at BEA; and scroll down the link at Laura Bowers' LiveJournal for another photo of me.

The photo on the sidebar is of my maternal grandmother as a child; and those of you on GMail? That artwork is by Cheetah. Let me do a little bragging; at Cheetah's school, each year the school picks one work of art by one child in each grade. That one artwork by grade is then mounted and put on display; when the child graduates, they can take it with them. The child selected for first grade? Cheetah! She, of course, is cooler than cool about it. "What is it," I ask. "I forget," she said. "C'mon, I want to play."

But what does Tea Cozy sound like? Now that can be answered! I am in a YALSA Podcast, talking about the ALA preconference. I have to say, it was fun. I may just buy a microphone and start podcasting.

And what does Tea Cozy look like when she dances? Mitali Perkins made sure that question would be answered! But thanks to my being behind Fuse # 8, you can barely see me; I'm in the white shirt and green pants. And yes, they are baggy. And yes, I have to lose a few pounds. And yes, you can tell it's me because I'm waving my arms at all the wrong times.

Tea cozy? Hmmm--not your regular tea cozy I presume? Coming from England, I know a thing or three about tea cosies (like we spell it with an s). Not that I drink tea, mind you, but my mother still does--without the cosie. Now grandma--she used a cosy and it fit real snug on that old teapot of hers. I think she crocheted it--the cosy that is. And yes, it did smell. Sweaty hands, if I remember right.

There are many varieties. Or there were years ago. Many colors (colours), sizes, shapes, materials.

So to what kind of cosy are you referring? :-)

Ooops! Spelled one "cosy" wrong. Sorry. A writer should know better. Now if it had been plural, then the ie would work. Okay, time for a break.

I'd say you're being silly about the diet thingy, but then, you notice there are no pictures of ME online at ALL. Go you doing your podcast! How cool and tech-ish is that? Can't wait to hear!

Thanks, Liz! It's neat to hear someone's voice, after only seeing their words in print. I'm glad you're having such a great time with YALSA.

I keep trying to listen, but the program says I'm a spammer and won't let me in.

Did you report me? I promise I'll stop sending you Viagra ads.

Liz - I always thought that was your photo on the sidebar! It's a bit like learning that Lucy and Ricky got divorsed! Smile!

I'd listen to your podcasts if you started them!
