Essence of Coffee

What is Coffee?

Well according to our invaluably dear friend Wikipedia,

“Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted seeds, commonly called coffee beans, of the coffee plant. They are seeds of coffee cherries that grow on trees in over 70 countries. Green unroasted coffee is one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world. Due to its caffeine content, coffee can have a stimulating effect in humans. Today, coffee is one of the most popular beverages worldwide.”

Boring right?

Here are alternative (better) Coffee definitions and explanations:

COFFEE

It’s discovery has enlarged the realm of illusion and given more promise to hope

Should be administered intravenously

Is like love, the more you get, the harder to let go

Deprivation hereof may cause sleep or worse, sopor

A habit nigh impossible to get rid of

Is the writer’s blood type

Created on the Eight Day

What came before life

Because you can sleep when you’re dead

If heaven had flavor

Proof that God Loves us

Was made for the Morning

100% replacement for sleep

The gasoline of life

A food group

When added to thinking, produces great results

When not added to thinking, still produces great results

With enough, you can rule the world, and never sleep again

Is something people sleep for, just to get another

Is not really a beverage, it is a Moment, of pleasure

Often used as a comparison (E.g: I Love You, but not as much as I love Coffee)

It Starts a Great Day

a definition of a woman: Hot, Strong, Sweet and Steamy

A cup of cloud 9

Causes you to sleep with your eyes open

Has an evil twin: Decaf

Smells like freshly ground heaven

The first peripheral

a day without coffee is not day, but a nightmare

At 16 cups of coffee a day, sleep becomes irrelevant!

The True Black Gold

Breakfast without coffee is like a Predator without ammo.

Coffee Binge:  That which is necessary to function normally.

makes the world go round, love only populates it!

The foundation of consciousness.

Error running WAKEUP.BAT:  COFFEE.INI not found.

basic need of the human heart in nearly every great crisis

When used with fingernails, you could go on a low-fat, high stress diet.

One of the major vitamins

while(!Coffee) _Panic()

what separates humans from animals

quantity is directly proportional to the power’s of the mind

When it falls into your stomach, and straightway there is a general commotion.  Ideas begin to move like the battalions of the Grand Army of the battlefield, and the battle takes place.  Things remembered arrive at full gallop, ensuing to the wind.  The light cavalry of comparisons deliver a magnificent deploying charge, the artillery of logic hurry up with their train and ammunition, the shafts of with start up like sharpshooters.  Similes arise, the paper is covered with ink; for the struggle commences and is concluded with torrents of black water, just as a battle with powder.  ~Honore de Balzac,

Be a coffee-drinking individualespresso yourself!

Everybody should believe something

I believe I’ll have more coffee.

Rainbows

Dear Ellipsis,

Sorry i haven’t been writing in a while. Just haven’t found the right motivation. Been down these daysa cocktail of a lot of things in my head. I feel like there’s just somethingsomething missing. Where are the epiphanies when you need ’em right?

Well I had a little epiphany today. But that’s after sleeping at 3am and waking up on the wrong side of the bed and worse side of a cold…and a week of arduous melancholy apathy. There WERE a few good highlights of my day, besides the weekly meetingsa got to eat at a great Chinese restaurant (Whoever says their tired of chinese food haven’t gone to a real chinese restaurant )and a very undeserved hand-foot-back Spa courtesy of the Fedalizos (Thanks againagainagain 🙂 ).

Back to the epiphanyso we were in the car and than,

“Look a rainbow!”

It was really more a 1/3 of a rainbow, but a rainbow nevertheless, in all its Roy G. Biv glory. I realized that it has been a long long while since I have seen one, or had the time to just look up

Never miss the chance to look up, and say“hmmRedorangeyellowgreenblueindigoviolet!”

Sometimes we get so preoccupied and caught up in our daily attempts to live our lives that we miss the chance to smell the roses, or witness rainbows. Do we really want to miss the best things in life? THE LITTLE THINGS, like a baby smiling, morning coffee, a heartwarming embrace, a great meal, or a krispy kreme doughnut on its conveyor belt being glazed with diabetes inducing sugar? We try to run our lives so much that we end up forgetting how to walk, slowly, taking in all things beautiful, things that are truly significant. If i ask you to list the most things that make you happy in life and all you say is “Family, school and friends”, or God forbid say “alcohol, video games and girls” than you my friend live a sad life.

Take your time. Stop running, and take the paseo. Why don’t you try this. Make a list of all things that make you smile, or that at least keeps you sane. how about “50 of the best things in my life”

i’ll start

Dear Ellipsis,

Enjoy some LoL’s before bed

Things to do in the bathroom stall

1. Stick your palm open under the stall wall and ask your neighbour, “May I borrow a highlighter?”

2. Say “Uh oh, I knew I shouldn’t put my lips on that.”

3. Cheer and clap loudly every time somebody breaks the silence with a bodily function noise.

4. Say, “Hmmm, I’ve never seen that color before.”

5. Drop a marble and say, “oh shoot!! My glass eye!!”

6. Say “Darn, this water is cold.”

7. Grunt and strain real loud for 30 seconds and then drop a cantaloupe into the toilet bowl from a high place six to eight feet. Sigh relaxingly.

8. Say, “Now how did that get there?”

9. Say, “Humus. Reminds me of humus.”

10. Fill up a large flask with Mountain Dew. Squirt it erratically under the stall walls of your neighbours while yelling, “Whoa! Easy boy!!”

11. Say, “Interestingmore sinkers than floaters.

12. Using a small squeeze tube, spread peanut butter on a wad of toilet paper and drop it under the stall wall of your neighbour. Then say, “Whoops, could you kick that back over here, please?”

13. Say. “C’mon Mr. Happy! Don’t fall asleep on me!!”

14. Say, “Boy, that sure looks like a maggot”

15. Say, “Darn, I Knew that drain hole was a little too small. Now what am I gonna do?”

16. Play a well known drum cadence over and over again on your butt cheeks.

17. Before you unroll toilet paper, conspicuously lay down your “Cross-Dressers Anonymous” newsletter on the floor visible to the adjacent stall.

18. Lower a small mirror underneath the stall wall and adjust it so you can see your neighbour and say, “Peek-a-boo!”

19. Drop a D-cup bra on the floor under the stall wall and sing “Born Free”

20. When you’re in a bathroom stall take a Snickers candy bar with you and when someone is next to you, squish it in your hand and reach under the stall wall and say “You got any more toilet paper over there, This side’s completely out.”

LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD

Little Red Riding Hood is skipping down the road
when she sees the Big Bad Wolf crouched down behind a log.

“My, what big eyes you have, Mr. Wolf,”
says Little Red Riding Hood.

The surprised wolf jumps up and runs away.
Further down the road Little Red Riding Hood sees the wolf again;
this time he is crouched behind a tree stump.

“My, what big ears you have Mr. Wolf,” says Little Red Riding Hood.

Again the foiled wolf jumps up and runs away.
About 2 miles down the road, Little Red Riding Hood sees the wolf again, this time crouched down behind a road sign.
“My, what big teeth you have Mr. Wolf,” taunts Little Red Riding Hood.

With that the Big Bad Wolf jumps up and screams,
“Will you get lost? I’m trying to take a dump!”

The Internet is like alcohol in some sense. It accentuates what you would do anyway. If you want to be a loner, you can be more alone. If you want to connect, it makes it easier to connect.Esther Dyson, Interview in Time Magazine, October 2005

Joke:

Lawyer: I have some good news and some bad news.
Client: Well, give me the bad news first.
Lawyer: The bad news is that the DNA tests showed that it was your blood they found all over the crime scene
Client: Oh no! I’m ruined! What’s the good news?
Lawyer: The good news is your cholesterol is down to 130!

Dear Ellipsis,

I’m sorry for ignorin you this past few weeks, I didn’t even bother continuing my Daily Joke and Quote Posts.

Then i remember, it’s not about the views, it’s about lessening a load, a load that could lead to possible dementiaor straitjacket, whichever comes first

So here i amnow for our quote and joke of the day 🙂

"Those" moments..., About Me, General Blah Blah

An Impulsive AutoBio

4:30am

I was born in a time of change, and grew up in the time of transition, during one of the best decades in time—the nineties. A true time of change, a sort of, in-between erabetween snail mail and email, pagers and cell phones, Doom and Half-life, Encyclopedia Britannica and Wikipedia, between life and the dreaded Y2K virus, 90’s babies you know what I’m talkin about. I mean, what other decade could boast of Pinatubo’s Eruption, Michael Jordan’s Jump shot, Dolly’s cloning, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, The Spice Girl’s Girl Power, Baywatch’s slow motion-running-on-the-beach, Agassi’s Backhand, the start of reality tv at MTV, Tupac, B.I.G, Anime’s rising popularity, Microsoft’s Windows NT 3.1, Playstation’s launch, the first Final fantasy game in NES, Manchester United, the wonderbra, the Tamagotchi, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Van Halen, Guns N’ Roses, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Limp Bizkit, Hammer Pants, Michael Bolton, Babyfacemy point taken.

Growin up in a time of constant change from the old school conservative to new school modernism had a great effect on me.

Excuse the rodomontade, because even if the description of someone in constant change is impossible, here i still go

I’m in Constant Flux

In Constant Curiosity

I Walk a Straight Line, and not circles (no idea what that meant)

I’m dumb and grouchy right after waking up, don’t get on my nerves

I’m Awfully Loving, and Affectionately Stubborn.

I’m adorably hypocritical and idly brilliant

I Have Mr. Bean’s Ingenuity and Einstein’s wisecracks

When not walking on water, I fly through the air with the greatest of ease.

I extensively use the mouth I was given, pardon the loquacious-ness

I love my polemics

I schmooze and not ramble, usually standing between wheedling and insinuating

I love the occasional mental calisthenics and witty repartee

I see little things for what they’re worth, because yes, it’s the little things that matter

whoever said nothing is impossible, never tried slamming a revolving door

I Sleep with 8 pillows

Idiosyncrasies: my favorite Word

Even If It Kills Me, I’m Gonna Smile.

“This is who I am. Nobody said you had to like it.”

What? What was I talkin about, you say? “ME”try to understand
