Don’t know my coffee limits…

with 4 comments

Had to wake up early for work today… far too early… same as every other day this week.  Damn emergencies.

Don’t drink coffee that often, when I need to wake up my goto is Red Bull… or, as I like to refer to it, the Elixir of the Gods… unfortunately my red bull stash at work has gone unmonitored for the past month, and thus has disappeared.  Damn co-workers.  So I had to make some coffee.  Don’t make coffee usually… made it strong… drank the whole pot… jittery as all hell, and can’t think in complete sentences at the moment.  Never twitched this much before while typing.  Makes it hard to do it correctly.

I know my limits with Red Bull (hint: when your skin starts to smell like Red Bull, you’ve gone to far).  But since I don’t usually make coffee, let alone drink it in large amounts, I have no idea where/when to stop.

Probably shoulda stopped after 1 cup, seeing as how I made it waaaay stronger (as I just found out, 3x the recommended limit on scoops)… but now I’m finishing my fourth, and strangely I can’t stop.  Probably gonna go make another pot shortly.

At a slight lull in the days activities, maybe I’ll run some laps… I should probably never drink coffee again… at least, not coffee that I brew.  Damn coffee.

Reminds me of the Futurama episode where Fry drinks 100 cups off coffee, and enters into an expanded, sped up state of mind… of course, I think my heart will probably give out before I achieve hyper-awareness.  Damn reality.

Update: It’s now 3:30PM.  And I have crashed, and crashed hard.  Having trouble just keeping my eyes open.  Sooooo glad I drove in instead of riding in today, probaly be fine moving, but it’d be pretty embarrassing to tip over at a stop light.

    In college I drank so much coffee I had heart burn – I was at about a pot a day.

  2. We might have to duke it out: in a previous post I called Sriracha sauce “Elixir of the Gods”

  4. Oh, by the way, I saw your red bulls in the fridge the other day…did you buy more? perhaps they were just hidden. Perhaps someone was playing mind/coffee games with you.
