Coffee can make me do excited things. I’m guessing that’s what it’s like for most people when they get drunk (which I find a rather dull experience).
While I like the warm glow of a good drink or three, I detest the feeling of becoming really intoxicated, ie drunk.
Coffee, on the other hand, is the elixir of life and the nectar of the gods. And I can drink a strong cup of gourmet coffee, go to bed and go right to sleep. Caffeine doesn’t keep me awake at all.
I’ve cleverly kept myself Not-Addicted to caffeine so when I drink my poison of choice (Dr. Pepper; coffee I can’t drink ’cause it goes all laxative on me), I do rather turn into the poingy ferret my online persona projects… and then I fall over asleep ;D
It is the modern version of “Six Tana Leaves for Life, Nine for Motion.”
I always wondered what would happen if they gave Imhotep MORE than 9 tana leaves? Perhaps Vachel?
@Sensei; you’re kidding, right? Did you ever watch “The Mummy”? (The 1999 version with Brendan Frasier and Rachel Weisz, not the 1932 version with Boris Karloff and Zita Johann and any of its sequels. I mean, Zita was cute, but Rachel held title as The Hottest Woman On Film in my book for the longest time.) Imhotep’s reaction at being denied Rachel (fire falling from the sky, giant crickets, angry cats) is so much like some of my former bosses, that if they HAD given him more than 9 leaves, he’d be CEO of a major financial management company by now. (Of course, that might explain the financial meltdown of 2008…)
Actually, we might be in better shape if he had been in charge of the fed.
