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?
