Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.

“I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone, “so I can’t take more.”

Let’s have tea, shall we? Leave the proper crumbs on the butter knife, for changing subjects is a sticky affair and we’ve no time to wash the things between whiles. So how do you fancy your tea? What do you think about the student assignment process? Pour another cup, please; by the eighth round, it’ll do us all some good. For vittles, there’s handheld savory Bike Basket Pies, almond cookies from Dianda’s, dainty Po’Kies, octodogs, and quesadilla salvadoreña from Pan Lido. Blast, my teacup overfloweth. May I use this Make magazine kids issue as a saucer?  Let’s all move one place on… Om and cheers!
