Oh, coffee.... You elixer to the Gods.


I'm experiencing a rough one this morning, folks.

I had a bad dream last night and woke up around midnight, staying up for most of the night.

I hate it when this happens....

Because, when I finally do fall asleep, I'm so fucking tired when it's time to get up again. I ended up hitting snooze 3 times and still lay in bed for another ten minutes with my eyes shut.

Ugh....

Now I have absolutely no motivation, whatsoever. I just want to crawl back into bed and sleep for the rest of this rainy day.

It's rainy, and muggy, and I'm tired, and the meaning of life is in question right now....

Wish me luck.

    Oh it certainly not good when the weather is terrible though i only treat myself to one coffee a day,rest of time it just water or a glass or two of bubbly
I like to start my day with 2 cups. I'm not big on Starbucks or anything... I always just make my own. And, only in the morning.

Once I got going, the day smoothed out ok, but it was a rough start. I hate days like that.

RESPONDING TO:
Perhaps there is a reason you have felt like an outsider.


sure. take a look at the pic of the mug granny posted.
granted that to most thats a joke, ha-ha.

but there ARE a finite amount of people for whom
thats an actual way of life.

while im sure thats not you,
i once saw a jeopardy contestant who was introduced
as a college professor, no less,
whose chosen intermission topic to talk about was how
none of her students were allowed to talk to her in the morning
unless they saw her not only WITH her mug,
but having actually having DRANK from that mug.
a college professor! on jeopardy! !

even if theyre the exception rather than the rule,
its no fun having to work with or interact with
even one person like that.

have a good weekend,
and looking forward to INDEPENDENCE DAY holiday
on a WEEKEND next week.

    Sometimes I feel like the 'odd' one because I am not a coffee drinker. Tea is my drink of choice and am now making up my own jugs of iced tea (no sugar). My daughter is viewed as even 'odder' as she doesn't drink coffee, tea nor hot chocolate.
For the majority of my life, I was not a hot beverage drinker either. My ex husband drank a lot of pop, and then, I started drinking pop too. When I have it up, I discovered flavored coffee and creamer and a new way to get my morning caffeine.

    1. I don't require coffee to be responsible. There are plenty of mornings that I don't get my first cup until the 9 o'clock meeting at work.

Up until 4 years ago, I'd have probably 2 coffees in my entire life. When I gave up pop, I had to find an alternate source for caffeine to start my day.

Introduction... Coffee.

I should sleep well tonight, though. I'm headed to the gym for the first time in months. Can't wait.
