No more coffee!!

After a latte and a mocha and 3 hours at Borders and the attached starbucks, i have experienced heaven.
i have also learnt.......no more than one coffee drink in one sitting.

my head hurts, i feel weak and i didnt eat lunch cuz i was so sick after the coffee.
i spent 3 hours at Borders, selecting, reading, buying, drinking.......ignoring the twisting of my stomach.....

next time, i shoud do mocha with whipped cream.and latte without. and latte with double espresso. must remember that.
i bought lolita, a terry pratchett and a random interesting looking fantasy thing.
i read princess diaries 8(stupid, i know) and some gothicky pop art thing.


they say what you get after death is what you believe you'll get.
i want to get a huge bookstore with a starbucks in it, and unlimited spending money.

latte with double espresso - that is sure a good choice. i like my coffee strong, and without cream. Loads of coffee can upset stomach - i learned it in the hard way. A huge bookstore with a starbucks - hmm.. thats something i too would like after my death.

hehe... my idea f heaven is very close 2 urs... i need a huge bookstore with a chocolate place nearby n coffee... also two dogs, my bf n a phone...

:O

Don't say that. It wasn't the coffee, it was the coffee you picked. Go for Hazelnut Mochas if you can't handle the cream. Just don't blame the coffee.

2 xh: huh, i like my coffee semi-strong, with cream. actually i don't drink much coffee yet so i'm still in the experiment stage.

2 the drink: hmm, maybe we'll end up in the same bookstore! tho i don't think they'll let dogs there.....

2 reno: sorry, sorry, it was the coffee I picked. happy? i take vanilla mochas, i CAN handle the cream, i just can't handle two starbucks coffees in two hours, i learnt that the very hard way.

Too much coffee = bad. I learnt it the hard way too. :)

One time, during a moment of helpless lonliness and misery, I had 5 shots of espresso.

Spent the night haunted by amazing thoughts and visions, and the morning after trying to rehdrate myself before I collapsed.

Someone once compared getting wasted on coffee to getting wasted on alcohol. Coz both dehyrdate you. Conclusion? You'll feel just as bouncy and delusional when you're dying of thirst... >_<

I've grown to enjoy the time I spend in caffeine withdrawal now... :/

hmmm...
Wat happened to the promised Mochachillo???
Or our Cafe Frappe wit cream....

Anyways....
I'm back in the blog world....
An i made a point at least a poem once a week...
At the very least.....

Hmmmm...
I hate writing....
But surprisingly....
It's tho only thing that sets me free......

Coffee actually calms me, rather than the buzz it gives most people. I drink black coffee like water now, about 9 cups a day. It's losing it's calming properties now. :(

taurius1 said...

9 cups? O_O
I can relate to the calming effect It's much easier to think after some coffee. The buzz is just in terms of stamina to do things. But stil... 9 cups.
I'll be running around all day like a rabbit in heat with that much caffeine in my system. >_<

Man... try abstaining from the stuff for a while... The withdrawal is scary. Degenerated muscle tone, zero attention span, muscle twitching, and a hole in your soul that you know you can't fill.

I did it once. I went from 4 espressos a day to zero overnight. Stayed without coffee for two months. Very scary two months. :( I even started having apple juice in my coffee mug. >_<

2 taurius: as i said, i'm not used to coffee.....and i'm high enough in my normal state without a caffeine buzz, which is why i just have the occasional mocha....

2 aiman: u come to mct, u meet me in borders, n then i can have my latte n u can have ur frappe n we can both share. that ok?

2 reno: of course hon if u drink 9 cups a day it won't calm you........

2 taurius again: see this is why i try not to get addicted to stuff.....so hard to quit.....

princess diaries isnt stupid!

its fun. loads of fun!

taurius1 said...

I've never been addicted to anythign... I don't think I've every had anything that I can't do without if need be...

But things are just so much clear after a mug of coffee. :)

The decaffeination of my system was solely to let me sleep properly during my vacations. :)
