Thinking on…. Friday? – CAFFEINE

Hey ya’ll. So that’s right, I’m doing a “Thinking on Thursday” post on a Friday, because this was me yesterday:

Except that I didn’t run out of coffee. So this is what happens – I slept in yesterday until like 10:30 and that was awesome. I got up, went for like a half-hour walk, came back and showered, and then it hit me that I hadn’t made any coffee yet… But I figured since it was about noon, why bother? Well, turns out I am like a miserable ZOMBIE when I don’t have my daily caffeine fix. I didn’t feel like killing time online, playing video games, reading, cleaning, shopping, or anything really. I was literally too lazy to pick up my phone and go on Twitter. In the afternoon I ended up laying on the couch and watching 6 episodes of That 70’s Show and the last half of the movie I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry until the honeyman got home. During the movie, at about 6 pm, I finally decided screw it, and I made some coffee. My headache went away, I had a nice time with the honeyman hanging out and making dinner, and then at 9 I took a little 3-hour nap before getting up at midnight for work.

Coffee is probably my biggest vice. Besides the added bonus of keeping me alert and perky, I just love drinking it. I love switching the coffee pot on and settling down to read blogs while I sip. I love getting coffee while I’m out and about, shopping and whatnot. I love drinking coffee at other people’s houses. I know how bad the creamer is for me, but it’s SO WORTH IT. I can’t help it. I don’t even want to help it. My biggest vice could be a lot worse.

What sucked the most though is that I had no motivation to read. I had the book IN MY LAP and still never got around to it. I didn’t have the concentration for it, especially since it’s a sci-fi book about Mars and there’s some details and smart stuff I actually have to pay attention to.

So, yeah. That’s why there was no blog post yesterday. But you can be damn sure I’ll never make that mistake again – I’ll take care to properly caffeinate myself each morning, lest I have another day of just staring at the tv. Blech.

Anyone out there are coffee-addicted as me?

Does it affect your reading / blogging?




  1. I hate coffee but I do like a good caffeine fix via Diet Coke. I’m not sure if it does me any good or not though- I tend to have it round lunchtime, and after lunch I’m no good for anything… Hmm… should probably think about that…

    *pops open another can of coke*

    Nope, you know what, I’m fine.


  2. Hi Sarah, I am exactly the same way, and I don’t want to give it up; it’s too enjoyable. When I am at Barnes & Noble, I buy a coffee for the way home– books and coffee go together. šŸ™‚ The last several times, I bought the largest Mocha Frappacino– total delight!!


  3. I am a total coffee addict. You will have to pry it out of my cold dead hands but I have been trying to cut back from my 5 or 6 cups a day to maybe 3 or 4. šŸ™‚


  4. LOL! I’m not a coffee addict and my max is 1 a day (otherwise I get totally hyperactive, it’s not pretty), but I do appreciate a good cup of coffee šŸ™‚ The Starbucks that just opened at my train station a couple of weeks ago will be seeing me often šŸ˜‰ But I do have days like the one you had when you just don’t feel like doing anything that costs somewhat of an effort.
    But yeah, caffeinating will probably get you more productive šŸ˜‰


    1. I wish just 1 cup of coffee was enough for me! I’ve built up too much of a tolerance for it, lol, just like any addictive substance.


  5. I’m not a coffee addict, but there are day when I’m not up fro anything if I don’t get a caffeine fix – on the days I can’t read, or blog or do anything i don’t really have to do either.


  6. I am completely addicted to coffee. I have myself convinced that I can’t write or edit unless I have coffee. I finally made the switch from creamer to half & half. It’s not the greatest and I’ll probably switch back soon, but couldn’t stand just plain milk. I also caved last year and bought a smaller coffee maker that makes about 2 mugs full at most.

    My name is Jenn and I have a problem.


  7. I am not a coffee addict but I am a caffeine addict. I cant do anything productive without caffeine. I take it in all its forms. Energy drinks ,coffee and whatever else it happens to be in.


  8. I’m absolutely addicted to coffee and my boyfriend only made it worse by getting me a Keurig for Christmas. (I used to live with my grandparents and they had one, but having your own is completely different!)

    Also, right next door to work is a Starbucks. It’s like the world wants me to be addicted. šŸ™‚
