Coffee, Soy Milk and JaNoWriMo

It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity. I bet this kind of thing does not happen to heroin addicts. I bet that when serious heroin addicts go to purchase their heroin, they do not tolerate waiting in line while some dilettante in front of them orders a hazelnut smack-a-cino with cinnamon sprinkles. ~Dave Barry

Today, I awoke and stumbled downstairs for coffee ... only to discover a horrifying fact: I am OUT OF CHOCOLATE SOY MILK.

Some people use cream. Some use regular milk. I use chocolate soy milk in my coffee, and nothing else quite does it for me.

I was devastated.

So, here I sit, drinking coffee with plain milk and a touch of hot cocoa powder and grimacing and feeling terribly off-kilter.

So... instead of a post here, I'll simply direct to you today's post at JaNoWriMo. If you click on the first link, it'll take you to my post only. The second, and you can see what everyone over there is up to.

Today's "to-do list":

Go to store for soy milk.

Everything else is negotiable.

Happy Saturday! Don't forget to turn the clocks ahead tonight (unless you're in one of the two places who don't observe this silliness)!


RE: Yesterday's post -- make belive, people, make believe! Y'all were so serious... goodness. Only a few folks really got into the swing of things. IRL, I would probably donate the book to a UBS or the library, too. BUT... after having read a really rotten story, I'd surely think of ways to dispatch it first.

I like Brandy's idea of using it in the litter box, and Invoker wanting to have a book BBQ on the author's lawn. Kim was good, too: take the book camping for use as a fire starter AND potty paper! Well done folks... *G*


You Are Vanilla

You are a delightful, friendly person. You are optimistic about life and people.

You are enthusiastic and energetic. You enjoy everything you do.

You are cooperative and flexible. You get along with people from many walks of life.

You're not a show off. Instead, you're more likely to help other people shine.

I drink my coffee black. Unless it's really weak coffee and then I have to add something to it or else it's undrinkable. Never tried chocolate soy milk, though I like drinking csm on it's own.

Good stuff.

Ditto what Ceri said. She and I are twins in the coffee department.

The Dave Barry quote made me laugh so hard I think I broke something...

Brandy said...

No coffee for me, it leaves a bitter taste, ugh. AND I just found out I have to avoid soy products. It's harder than it sounds!
But, I hope you get your chocolate soy milk today!

Re the quiz: I'm Vanilla. It works. *G*

I hope you have a lovely day!

Not a coffee drinker (I'm a Diet Coke girl), but the Dave Barry quote sent me into hysterics. He's such a riot!

And one of the many things I loved about Arizona was the fact they didn't mess about with the whole Daylight Savings crap.

re quiz: I'm vanilla.

Did you get your soy chocolate milk?

I hope you had a wonderful day. The weather down here was beautiful.
