Tuesday TEA Time - Pencils, cosmic lattes, and a small island in Finland…

Tuesday TEA Time
I hope last week went well for you. I was super busy all week, but then had a pretty relaxed Saturday. I got a new pair of sneakers and I wrote about them over on Medium. This week is shaping up to be super busy as well 😓

Cosmic Latte
One of the most entertaining things I discovered this week was the color Cosmic Latte.
Cosmic latte is a name assigned to the average color of the universe, found by a team of astronomers from Johns Hopkins University.
I also love that a competing name for the color was “cappuccino cosmico.” You can read more about it on Wikipedia.
Also, as I am getting more and more into sneakers, I am reminded of awesome shoes from when I was growing up. I found this Reebok commercial of Michael Chang and it’s lovely and super 80s.

And finally, if you haven’t already, then you should read this interview with Quincy Jones. I won’t spoil anything, he just says what’s on his mind and it’s very very surprising and entertaining.

Just gorgeous.
