IS THIS TOO SNARKY FOR YOU??

I'm the biggest loser of them all because I'm not drinking tea or coffee at the moment.

Got incredible joy out of walking to Downbeat and ordering a fucking DECAF LATTE on Saturday. It wasn't even a good latte.

But the no caffeine is helping my headaches. A lot.





Sigh.

  1. I feel your pain. Except not completely because Wednesday is my one day a week for coffee, so right now I'm on a caffeine high. Sorry. I'll be more empathetic tomorrow.

    On a totally sexist note - I realized this week that although I love tea, I would be incredibly turned off if D were into it. I have no idea where this prejudice comes from (luckily D despises even the thought of tea, so we're good).

    2. Yeah, it's a process. I went cold turkey and didn't touch it for months but Wednesday is my worst day of the week, so I allow myself coffee to get through that morning only. Thursday is a let down, I'll admit.

      Just have to keep reminding myself that not having the miserable caffeine side effects is worth it. REALLY. Most days.

      Except I'm allowed on the weekends now. I love weekends.

  2. As a no-caffeiner, not to be a buzzkill, I have to say, out of concern and not out of snark, that decaf isn't entirely decaffeinated. It seems like its more like 1/5 caf, or so. I'd link to Wikipedia, but you know, SOPA.

    2. you introduced the all-important asshole emoticon to the conversation, which gives you a pass for the rest of the thread. (i'm the same with coffee, and i have no infant.)

      Delete
    3. all i'm saying is this: although the coffee is nice, there's no way i could have an infant if it wasn't for cocktails.

  11. EXCUSE ME.

    Tea is for awesome people. Tea is the nectar of the GODS. I could not function without it. And I'm not talking about your lavender camomile crap. PROPER BLACK TEA IS THE SHIT.

    You're all pussies.
