buh bye. . .

. . . coffee.
You have been a good friend, steadfast and there through many hard times.
I remember first meeting you when I as young, even when you were still forbidden tome for unknown medical reasons like a swollen head or sudden combustion. You were so precariously balanced on the kitchen sink in your lovely coffee pot home when I poured you out and sipped slowly on your black, pungent soul. You terrified me. You were bitter.
I learned to love you though, at first only to feel more grown up and fit in with the older kids I hung out with, and then later for your buzz.
Ahh, your buzz.
If there's one thing I will miss about you it would be that.
You could wake me up from my dreary sleep with your lovely wafting aroma drifting to my head-under-the-pillow stupor and clearing it all away. You were fabulous.
You even enhanced my "coolness" factor when I'd walk into class my hand wrapped around a Starbucks frap acting like I drank one of these every day, but in reality I just brewed some black and guzzled it.
You made me friends, even, and helped me get my best friend hooked on your adulterous taste-tingling seduction.

Goodbye, dear friend.
You will be sorely missed.


  1. I guess I just messed around with it.Ummm I can tell you how I changed my header or banner w/e its called. When you go to your blog screen at the top in the right hand corner it says customize you click on that and it brings you to a basic lay out of your page. On the long bar below "nav bar" (I think its got the title of your blog page on it) you click edit.If you want a pic on your
    banner you click on add image I think and you can choose an image that you want. To change the font on my banner I had to go to and add the font on there and just upload the image other wise the font stays the same and boring font. As for the colors you choose your template and then go to fonts and colors and you can change it how ever you like. Though Im sure that you know that part already. If you want and extra pic on there you click add a gadget and then pick the picture gadget and you can add what ever pic you want.

  2. Such a fitting farewell...Here's to many new and improved friends filling the space of this old friend :0)

  3. A sad lesson:

    Yesterday, for breakfast, I 'accidentally' got caffeine in me. Ooopps. Later, when I was at work I got buzzy. I could feel time slipping away. I'd be enjoying talking, but the buzz wanted me to hurry, get it over with, move on. I missed out on a lot of good talking.

    So, instead I got jittery and flew off the handle.

    Why don't coffee mugs come with warning labels? Drink me when you want to speed, not when you want to relax and enjoy.


Sound your barbaric yawp over the rooftops of my blog:
