Yet another sign of the apocalypse.

I am drinking decaffeinated coffee. Me. Self-proclaimed coffee snob. Drinkng DECAF. Furthermore, drinking decaff PRE-GROUND OUT OF A CAN!

Just chalk it up to the increasing decreptitude of the mortal shell in which this penguin is currently waddling. After all, I'm somewhere around 350 years old in penguin years. Sigh. I remember when I could drink real coffee and sleep like a baby (hmm, does that mean I fell asleep then a couple of hours later woke up crying at the top of my lungs?). Now look at me. I'm reduced to drinking DECAFF.

Gah. Getting old sucks. The only thing that sucks worse is the alternative.

  1. Never have been able to drink coffee and get a good nights sleep. Plus, I prefer being relaxed all the time.

  2. Decaf & cracks appearing in the earths surface.. Apocalypse IS upon us!! ;-)

    Psst.. Jasmine Tea has saved me!


    gawd, I feel like a bible thumper! ;-)

  3. Well, to borrow a line from the necon wingnuts...

    The good Lord had decreed that we drink caffeinated coffee... else He would not have made the BEANS with caffeine. Drinking decaf is akin to wishing folks a "Happy Holiday".

  4. Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention...

    Drinking decaf means the terrists have won, too.

  5. Then the terrorists have bloody well won (grumble mumble)....
