Coffee First

No matter what my plans (or lack thereof) are for any given day, I am basically a creature of habit.   My day starts with this lovely thought.

And second, more coffee.  And guess what comes next?  Gargantuan coffee number three.  Well that’s how it went today, anyway.

That’s probably quite enough coffee for one day.  I’m just not my usual laid back  lazy self tonight.  Instead I think I might describe myself as zingy.  Zippy?  Zonked will come later.

I always make coffee in the morning and drink at least one over sized cup before work.  Then I get a large black coffee from McDonalds for the morning.  Then when a co-worker shows up and asks me if I’d like a coffee, I rarely say no.  That would be rude.  We don’t fool around with wimpy little cups either – these are the super sized jumbo heart palpitation  inducing servings guaranteed to make it pretty much impossible for your eyes to close.

By five o’clock today I was still wide awake and buzzed and not thinking clearly, which helps to explain why I bought a gluten-free pizza crust mix and some yeast and enough pepperoni to pave my driveway.

Yes, I made pizza!  On this no bread no wheat no gluten and not even a measly cracker food plan I made up for myself, the one thing I’ve really been missing is pizza.  W was skeptical because he fears everything gluten-less, but the crust was okay!  It was a lot like biscuit dough, but crunchy.  Really, if you put enough tomato sauce and pepperoni and melted cheese on  something it’s pretty hard for it to taste bad.  I also threw on some bits of onion and green pepper.  Because vegetables.

Do you hate it when somebody says because followed by one word?  Do you get why that’s so popular when it’s rarely a proper explanation for anything?

And while you’re answering that could you also please explain to me why I’m drinking another cup of coffee as we speak?  Don’t worry, this one is decaf.   Because GAWD.

Maybe I should have some wine to help me sleep……  There’s no gluten in wine.  But first……

  1. There was a cool article on the FreshlyPressed board awhile back, arguing the place for “Because ____” in our vocab. I liked it… because validity. 😉 And I love-love coffee! 🙂

  2. Wow. This is my third time in a week I’m telling someone this:
    This is my FAVORITE post of yours ever. Loved it.

    Am crazy for coffee, but think I would have loved it even without coffeemania due to how well you communicated your own admirable addiction. (“Because GAWD.” I’m laughing again.)
    Smiled happily throughout, laughed twice, and, as a celiac, got a personal bonus in imagining that pizza!

    Being bad here, with a link to my own coffee-lovin’ post.

    But one wants a cup so much more when reading your post. As a matter of fact…

    • I like it black, but I LOVE it with cream. I put cream in my cup once, got distracted and forgot to pour the coffee in before taking a big sip. That was pretty disgusting. A little coffee definitely made it better. 🙂
