Of Politics, Sports and Sex

OK, so there won't be a LOT on here about sex, but tell the truth, that's most of the reason you entered this site, right? So, I'll slip some things in from time to time just to keep you coming...back.

I just wish I'd figured this out back in high school

I know this is tweet-worthy, which by my definition means it is an incredibly narcissistic post of virtually no interest to anyone, but I'm putting it here anyway, dagnabit!

I've never been a big believer in the theory that if you drink a lot of coffee and then go without it for a day, you get a headache. In fact, I've never even been sure I've believed that it does much to wake me up. I just like the taste.

Well, I've been grumpy and sleepy here at work all morning, and I just now went down and had a large cup of coffee from the pot that Saint Karen here at work makes me every day and I've noticed how much more awake I feel and in a much better mood, and dang if my headache didn't just go away.

Oh, did I forget to mention that there was no coffee at home this morning, so I drank Cheryl's decaf on the way into work?


  1. Dad Rellahan used to wake up in the middle of the night, go to the kitchen, and fix himself a cup of hot black caffinated coffee, so he could presumably go back to sleep without a headache.

  2. I was once told that putting milk or cream in your coffee somehow "binds" the caffeine and inactivates it. Not so as I've noticed.

  3. Interesting, U-V. Lately, I've switched to using Almond Milk in my coffee, so I wonder if that matters.
