We're fresh out of love, but there may be scandal and we certainly have sugar. Bring your own cup, please!
Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea.
Henry Fielding (1707-1754) "Love in Several Masques"
Had a terrible week (and it's not even over yet)? Is your New Year off to a lousy start? Worry not, friends, we've got you covered. Tea and biscuits will be served at 16:00, restaurant level of Center Building. You will still have problems, but hey, at least you can also have tea.
We had a kettle; we let it leak:
Our not repairing made it worse.
We haven't had any tea for a week...
The bottom is out of the Universe.
-- Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) "Natural Theology"
Details will be provided by Faculty Affairs Office.
Teatime at 16:00, Level B Center Building
We do not suggest you throw your tea into the East China Sea. Instead, drink it and have some cookies.
The Boston Tea Party, as described by Mr. Dawes Jr. in Mary Poppins (1964):
Mr. Dawes Jr: In seventeen hundred & seventy three, An official of this bank unwisely loaned a large sum of money to finance a shipment of tea to the American Colonies... Do you know what happened?
George W. Banks: Yes sir, yes I think I do. As the ship lay in Boston harbor, a party of colonists, dressed as Red Indians, boarded the vessel, behaved rudely, and threw all the tea overboard. This made the tea unsuitable for drinking — even for Americans!
Join us for teatime at 16:00, Thursday, Restaurant Level of Center Building. Please bring your own tea-holding vessel.
