I am at the SNARK today, rambling on about some half naked enchantresses from the days of yore. Got you, didn´t I?

For those of you with a habit of not clicking links that lead to other sites: pull up a chair and enjoy these!

10 ways to know if you drink too much coffee... source: here and there and everywhere!

1. You answer the door before people knock.
2. You haven't blinked since the last lunar eclipse.
3. You just completed another sweater and you don't know how to knit.
4. You grind your coffee beans in your mouth.
5. The nurse needs a scientific calculator to take your pulse.
6. You can take a picture of yourself from ten feet away without using the timer.
7. You can type sixty words per minute... with your feet.
8. You go to AA meetings just for the free coffee.
9. You can't even remember your second cup.
10. You help your dog chase its tail.
11. You think CPR stands for "Coffee Provides Resuscitation."

Now, go over to Central Snark! and quit being a baby: I know it was 11 answers!

At 18:13, Blogger Minka said...

Kyah, I can do that without coffee :) Under the influence of coffee, I´d probably paint the fences tehy line you up against while taking the rides :) Numbers are way overrated!

19. Your local Starbucks calls if they haven't seen you by 9 a.m. each morning.

20. You receive calls from more than one Starbucks locations.

21. Your "regular" drink is waiting for you when you walk in the door.

At 20:16, Anonymous Joel said...

...and by the way, we were at that very Starbucks just moments ago.

At 20:25, Blogger Minka said...

Morgan, being used to taking Nightshifts I most certainly agree. And thank you, The colouring is serpia and I was very impressed with my ability to apply it to a picture. Photoshop has another thing coming!

Joel, 19 is very good. How about you: "Your twitching is that excessive, you can capture it on a Richter Scale!"? And cheers for that little piece of valuable information!

22. You can only watch two minutes of "24" before switching channels.

Holy Java!

At 22:13, Anonymous neva said...

oh phooey! i peeked in on you early this morning -- to no avail -- and left the house (FOR Starbucks/WITH Joel) confident that i hadn't missed anything! d'oh!

23. not only are you familiar with the "drink" menu, you're often called to fill in for sick employees, despite the fact you don't work at Starbucks, and never have.

24. you're convinced there are many more clever contributions to make to teh Penguin's "Top 10 and Counting..." list, but the minute you start to think of something, you brain distracts you with: "Mmmmmm... coffee. Must. Have. More."

25. you can get from point A to point B faster without your car.

At 23:39, Blogger Minka said...

actonbell, some people sure like tehir "24". I have seen one fourth of an episode once!

Neva, loved your 23! And...in your defense...I published my post in teh afternoon, because some of us (which apparently is neither you nor Joel) have to slave away, with limited access to PCs :)

Quilly, I have to say...fabulous definition at WA today. Two thumbs up! 25...in downtown LA people then must be high on coffee 24/7 :)

26. The Energizer Bunny comes and asks you for advice :)

At 02:51, Blogger Doug said...

27. The energizer bunny asks you to repeat yourself smaller words and shorter sentences.

Founded in Seattle, they made Latte a household even if real men pretend not to have heard it.

28. Your doctor prescribes chamomile. Or else.

Have to confess, Minka, I haven't seen any tea logos that come close to challenging Starbucks, or other coffee purveyors. Not even the hard tea types. Boring. Like tea drinkers. Guess we'uns like it that way. Crooked little finger to you, lass. ;)

At 11:18, Blogger Minka said...

Doug... *uses wand and turns him into a coffee mug*

OC, I have to admit that I love my tea too. Nothing like a cup of peppermint or fennel tea for me in teh evening. WE are not boring, we just value quiet and relaxation.

At 02:01, Anonymous neva said...

my first cup of caffeine in the morning is Tazo Zen tea. lovelovelove it. and there ain't nothin' beats a cup of Sleepytime Extra (with honey) just before bedtime. mmmmm.

by the way, Minka -- that was one adorable picture i took of you, wasn't it? why yes, yes it was! (can't imagine any pic of you that's NOT adorable, but this one is especially cute!) xox

At 07:34, Blogger Minka said...

Yes, it certainly was!I like this one very much, because:

a) it is my first Starbucks picture
b) I love those tiny wrinkles around my eyes and mouth
c) I love teh happiness in my eyes. It sparkles!

At 18:03, Blogger Sar said...

Great picture! Great gal! Great coffee!

That about says it all. :)
