Day without coffee: # 5

Posted on October 21, 2008. Filed under: General Musings, Personal | Tags: , , |

Due to a very scary kidney infection I got last week, I’ve given coffee.

For the time being, I have no doubt. I have little illusions about the amount of self control I have when it comes to perfect, fresh ground, french pressed coffee with just a little bit of organic cream…..


There are a few things in life that I either have to entirely avoid or just know that my inhibitions are simply not there. Cigarettes? Eh, I have one if I’m drinking.

But when it comes to coffee and fluffy television I am powerless to resist.

So I avoid the latter and completely indulge in coffee.

Wow, this blog post is really not helping my coffee cravings. I had planned on writing a funny little montage of how I tried to make tea this morning and didn’t turn the burner on and was so groggy that I actually thought that I had made the tea already and was waiting for it to steep because I couldn’t remember what had happened.

I mean, I enjoy tea. Tea is yummy and comforting and has all sorts of pretty accessories. Enameled tea kettles, flirty, delicate cups and saucers, thousands of gorgeous pots. With coffee the best you’re going to get is a Bodum press, which, while nice looking, has nothing on an miniature Asian tea set made in the shape of lotus leaves.
