coffee

Mmm

Coffee is magic. Even now I feel the life-force flowing back into my extremities - No chuckling at the back! Why have 4 hours more sleep (which, to be fair, is what I really need) when you can have some of the divine dark liquor to see you through.

That said, this is Starbucks. When am I going to learn that they *do not* make tasty coffee. Blerg!

Coffee is good and actually I have just found out it may reduce insulin levels if you drink 4 cups of it in a day (decaffeinated as well!)

Rar
How did you only get 4 hours of sleep? I had to skip the coffee this morning due to having to ferry back the projector for 9 a.m. (which was stymied due to the fog, and it took me 2 hours to drive in). Lukewarm weak chai is not a substitute. Thank you for the martini last night. :)
Nono, I got 6 hours, needed 10. :)

Was awoken by the smaller and more truculant of the cats at 5:45. Upon realising that I wasn't about to roll over and go back to sleep I went and drained a couple of pints of water to stave off the hangover, resetting my alarm for 6:40. Heroically I even made the 7:09 train, although was without tunes as I couldn't find my mp3 player.

Did it make it upstairs with the side table?
Oops, sorry - yes, it's on top of your computer desk in the spare room. The small cat was extremely truculent, particularly with regards to going "Whap, whap, whap" on the pink plastic bag. We had an infinite "While cat whaps bag, pick up cat and fling on top of Adam, cat returns to bag" loop going for a while. I thought she might settle down on your head. No such luck. Very well done on making the train. I shall see you tonight for fondue.
We need some kind of perminant charging solution. My phone does this on my bedside table, but the mp3 player rarely makes it upstairs since it lives most of it's life in the recesses of my jacket. I wonder if you can get desktop cradles for the creative zen players...

My PDA (should I ever return it to a useable state) needs a similar setup. Perhaps some room needs to be made on the computer desk...
Sorry for your early awakening, I know how it dampens the general fun of the day, and you're welcome on the Martini, you know I'm happy to buy you cocktails any time.

To which end I've picked up todays Time Out, as it has a breakdown of the Top 100 pubs and bars in London. Splendid.
Admittedly I used to enjoy a Starbucks soya mocha as an occasional treat. In a way it's nice to have to live without coffee. No, hang on, that's a lie. At least you're not relying on pepsi for caffeine. It's cold outside AND inside me then. Stay happy in your choice of caffeine. Hmm, blithering non-sensically, never good...

Coffee is indeed magic.

It is, in fact, so magical that even I am now drinking coffee. (Black, two sugars.)

It's not that I've gotten used to, or even started liking, the taste. I hate it just as much as I used to.

It's the fact that I've realised that the caffeine goodness far outweighs the yucky badness, encouraging me to pay less attention to its taste and more to the way the world suddenly stops looking like it's been attacked by a hyperactive child armed with the smudge tool.
