Coffee Coffee Coffee!!!

This post is dedicated to the many leters of coffee I've had to drink just to stay alive this week....

This coffee 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, "The Pleasures and Pains of Coffee"

The morning cup of coffee has an exhilaration about it which the cheering influence of the afternoon or evening cup of tea cannot be expected to reproduce. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., "Over the Teacups," 1891

LUKE: Do they let kids drink coffee before school?
RORY: Why, do you think it might lead to harder stuff? Lattes, cappucinos...
LUKE: Forget I asked. (walks away)
-Gilmore Girls

If it ain't caffeinated, it ain't coffee! ~Author Unknown

Heh, I've never drank coffee of any kind. :)

Writing Magic is good so far - I'm taking it slowly so I can do all the exercises/writing prompts as I go. I think it's going to be very helpful for me!

When I went to the bookstore yesterday to buy a copy of Writing Magic, they said they had seven copies but failed to locate them.
So I haven'te been able to get it yet. But it looks great-so I'm having a hard time waiting.
Ps. You should probably try a Caramel Frappuccino (with extra whip cream and caramel topping!) at Starbucks if you ever want to give coffee a try....those things are SSOO good!
