    Tui for sale at Sephora

    Being the good MiceChatter that I am, I clicked the Sephora banner at the top do the page. One of the items in the Weekly Picks section was a product called Carol's Daughter Tui. Suddenly, and not for the first time, my MC and Sephora worlds collided.

    Sephora claims that Tui is pronounced "twee", whereas I have always said "two-e".
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

    NO GOATS!

    Now I have to find the picture of the New Zealand scent that I took at Sephora

    So have I. "Twee" is extensively used in the U.K. for anything that is just too precious, somewhat silly and way too fussy.

    And that describes our little Tui to a "T" doesn't it





























    That was almost too much sarcasm even for me.
    I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

    I've been pronouncing it two-ee as well. You know, like the sound you make when you try to spit really far!

    sounds about right.

    Just for the record: Tui, as I use it, is pronounced Two-ee.

    And is NOT an acronym.
    What an idiot....

    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

    Aww, no wonder he's been so scarce. He's been busy becoming rich and famous
