i think i can…

stay up till midnight ’cause my “body clock” says it’s really only 11 o’clock.

do you try to “cheat” daylight savings time like that too?

except it is catching up to me.

which is why those little foil packets in that picture below are quite often my best friends.

i think i could possibly rule the world if i drank italian roast coffee off and on all the day long.

or at the very least this small corner of the world.

sadly enough this dangerous behaviour is making me feel funny again.

some people. namely obsessive compulsive people such as myself. shouldn’t even be allowed to purchase coffee. it is a drug. and when it is put into the wrong cup the results can be devastating.

i am sleep deprived. out of whack. and this small little corner of the world doesn’t run smoothly that way. quality is suffering. and i am going to quit coffee. cold turkey. again.

i’ve stocked up on green tea. vitamins. sam-e. and a few other things that should help get me thru the day.

if you don’t suffer from this love/hate relationship with the bean, as my dad calls it, what do you do to “keep going and going and going….” because let’s face it. none of us are pink. furry and have the time to bang on a silly drum all day.

i do have the running in circles thing in common with that engergizer bunny though.

and maybe i’d even like some glasses like his… 

p.s. happy belated st. patty’s day. we did have a blast. hope you did too.

  1. I’ve not been hooked by coffe; I am however hooked by chai tea lattes and Dr. Pepper. Dr. Pepper being the least healthy on account of the high fructose corn syrup… but I just like the flavor (it’s prunes!). So during Lent, I’ve been without Dr. Pepper for the most part and have been snacking on prunes!! And, of course, drinking tea for the kick. The chai I like is caffiene free.

  2. I love the bean…I love the bean!!!
    Any kind. Any flavor. Hot or chilled. GIVE ME THE BEAN!

    Cherry Diet Coke..yum yum.

    I’ve often pondered quitting coffee, but I love the flavour. It is fairly easy for me to stop after a cup or two as well. It’s just that there are some days when it will work like an hyperactive laxative. There’s the rub. So, it’s a disturbing issue.

  4. No, life without coffee–even if it is only decaf–would be like life without pasta: hardly worth living. The Atkins Diet would kill me. And all the black teas make me sick unless I have something in my stomach.

    But yes, I have been messed up by the time change. I was up until 11 finishing a hat for Gabe (knitting being another addiction), and overslept this morning. I feel ready for a nap about now, and am wondering how I will read Greek Myths to Sebastian without dozing off…

  5. I have tried to quit coffee…. but it is a drug! An evil mean but ever so yummy drug. Sigh.

  6. I drag myself out of bed in the mornings…
    and go straight to the coffeepot

    need I say more ; )

  7. Oh, I do that too. I love coffee but have an old ulcer which sometimes acts up so then I have to quit.

    L-Carnitine is a supplement from the vitamin aisle, and it really helps with energy levels.
