I just stopped by for coffee...


... because the only real coffee in the house right now is decaf and I'd have to boil the kettle and the whistling would wake everyone else up. Yes, my house has a stovetop kettle instead of an electric one. Anyway, it's cold and I'm in bed with my laptop and several imaginary characters. Why get up?

Well, for coffee. I'm not going to do it, though. I really should go to sleep since it's past 1am here.

Anyway, random thread where we can just say anything we like. I'd like to see it grow to enormous size as everyone posts random comments about their day, their writing or indeed anything else at all. Coffee, for example. Enjoy!

Indeed.

Okay...random (but still happens to be on topic)...is it weird that I don't like to drink coffee but love the smell of it? I also love the flavor of it in other stuff (like mocha brownies...mmm) but wouldn't be able to finish a cup of it.

So I have to resort to chocolate and soda when I need a caffeine fix. ;)

I don't think I need too much caffeine to stay up and write, though. I've been fleshing out my outline at night and have found myself consistently staying up until like 2 or 3 am. *sigh* July is going to be rough sleep-wise! Ah well, I can sacrifice sleep for a novel.

No, it's not weird. I like the smell of coffee, but I don't drink it. I usually drink tea for my caffeine fix instead.

I drink Soda, Herbal Tea, or Gatorade and sometimes flavored water to keep awake with energy to write and read for every day and night. Until 1 AM or 2AM to where i will be asleep with more plot ideas in my head which brings me to insomnia somewhat throughout each night.

I rely on tea for caffeine, too.

I love the smell of coffee, and I like the taste, but I always choose tea over it.

Don't worry - there is no topic!

Cool mug!

I have a selection of coffee-drinking vessels - a beer stein, a giant red mug, a smaller purple mug and a Gothic goblet decorated with gargoyles and dragons. I think I need to start photographing some of the weird things on my desk. I've got Leroy the Chicken, the mini Vikings, my coffee cups, various plastic weapons...

The gargoyle & dragon one sounds interesting!

I don't even have a desk, so there is nothing lying around. I do all of my writing and college work from an armchair in the lounge. :rolleyes:

I do all of my writing from sitting on my bed or sitting on the couch while drinking soda or Gatorade in the morning and afternoon to keep up my energy and mind for writing.

I'm enjoying my other favourite drink today - hot lemon cordial :). For some reason people usually thing that's going to taste horrible, but it's really good.

(Drinks thread FTW)

Coffee!!! So needed these past two weeks every morning at work - I haven't been sleeping nearly enough. Sadly, I haven't had time to work on JulNoWriMo stuff all week! I'll be scrambling around next week...

Also, I like that we have this thread here. We needed something like this. Just as long as those youngins' don't think we're stealing their idea with the High School/random thread.

I like hot chocolate with creamer stuff in it that supposed to be for coffee compared to coffee itself. Because even if i like the smell i cannot stand drinking it because it tastes funny to be compared to hot chocolate or any other drink.

Coffee or sleep. There is no middle ground.

I agree with you Siana that there is no middle ground between coffee and sleep. Though i think thunderstorms are not easy to sleep through though. Because even the baddest ones wake me up and i cannot get to sleep so i guess it is a case of insomnia to me.

Good ol' insomnia... (not). At the moment I have the sleep patterns of a vampire and even a nice little edge of 'The light! It burns!' when I try to go outside during daylight. I'm this close to my second major migraine of the month...

*holds fingers up Maxwell Smart style to indicate a very small distance*

It would be better if I had real coffee instead of this decaf business. Maybe.

I deliberately don't write in June so I don't need to panic before JulNo. :D


I used to participate in every WriMo I could for, err, 2~3 years. Now I don't have the time or motivation to so the only ones I participate in seriously are JulNoWriMo and NaNoWriMo (although I attempt JanNo and AFN every year and often carry NaNo work through to FiMo). :)

Argh, someone pass me the coffee! I've been mostly abstaining for a while because of breastfeeding (and eight months before that, pregnancy) and now I'm just having maybe a cup every two weeks or so. I miss the smell more than anything - coffee can have such a rich, sensuous aroma that makes writing so much smoother as well!

*wants coffee*

Why, oh why is there only decaf in the house?

Side note: cats can smell caffeine. Zeke the cat is a coffee fiend, to the point where I have to guard my cup from him. Only the regular stuff, though. When it's decaf he doesn't touch it.

I think I'll be off for a coffee fix later today as well. Husband has to use my debit card because there is some issue with his so I can't just loaf of to Starbucks like I'd like to.

What's your drink? I drink a cold vanilla latte with equal parts peppermint with soy, no whip. Vegan. I quit drinking black coffee because I drink too much. Making an event like that seems to curb my appetite.
