Default You know you are addicted to coffee if ...

You grind your coffee beans in your mouth.
You sleep with your eyes open.
You have to watch videos in fast-forward.
The only time you're standing still is during an earthquake.
You can take a picture of yourself from ten feet away without using the timer.
You've worn out your third pair of tennis shoes this week.
Your eyes stay open when you sneeze.
You chew on other people's fingernails.
The nurse needs a scientific calculator to take your pulse.
You're so jittery that people use your hands to blend their margaritas.
You can type sixty words per minute with your feet.
You can jump-start your car without cables.
You don't sweat, you percolate.
You walk twenty miles on your treadmill before you realize it's not plugged in.
You forget to unwrap candy bars before eating them.
You've built a miniature city out of little plastic stirrers.
People get dizzy just watching you.
Instant coffee takes too long.
You channel surf faster without a remote.
You have a picture of your coffee mug on your coffee mug.
You can outlast the Energizer bunny.
You short out motion detectors.
You don't even wait for the water to boil anymore.
Your nervous twitch registers on the Richter scale.
You help your dog chase its tail.
You soak your dentures in coffee overnight.
Your first-aid kit contains two pints of coffee with an I.V. hookup.
You ski uphill.
You get a speeding ticket even when you're parked.
You answer the door before people knock.
You haven't blinked since the last lunar eclipse.

HEHEHE..Oh, I just HAVE to add....

*Being what I am... *
------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you want to know if you suffer from “Alertness Deficit Disorder” (ADD)? Then just take this simple quiz. These questions will help us to determine whether or not you suffer from this terrible affliction; the only known cure for which is caffeine.

The following series of Yes/No questions will allow us to determine your Addiction Factor(TM). Keep track of the number of Yes and No answers you get and chart yourself at the end.

Remember: Prevention is the best medicine. Or was it laughter? Either way, read on.

*******************************************
1. Do you use coffee to escape from your problems?
2. Do you eat spoonfuls of instant coffee because it’s easier?
3. Have you ever woken up in a puddle of your own coffee?
4. Do you find that it’s easier to drink more coffee than go to sleep?
a) Have you ever drunk cold coffee?
b) Right out of the pot?
5. Do you spend more than 20% of your income on coffee and/or coffee related products?
6. Does your coffee cup resemble a beer stein?
7. Has anyone ever told you that you “have a problem”?
8. Do you need coffee:
a) to get up in the morning?
b) to get out of bed?
c) to be injected intravenously to stimulate blood-flow?
9. Do you own a “Coffee Helmet”? (For the culturally ignorant, a coffee-helmet is a hat with coffee-cups attached to it and a straw coming out of each cup leading to the mouth, used for hands-free drinking.)
10. Do Native North American Aboriginal Indian Peoples call you “Ona mac to wanda” (Smells-like-coffee)?
11. Does your doctor measure your heartbeat on the Richter scale as well as by its frequency?
12. Have you ever sold personal or other people’s possessions just to get your fix for the day?
13. Does the phrase “Swiss water decaffeinated” strike terror into your heart?
a) Do you have a coffee maker in more than one room of your house?
b) …in more than five?
c) …in your bathroom?
14. Do the people at Second Cup refuse do give you free coffee cards anymore?
a) …because you’re wearing out their hole-punch?
b) …and it’s bad for the environment?
15. Do you grind your own coffee?
16. Do you grow your own coffee?
17. Have you ever been fired from a job because you’re “drinking their profits”?
18. Do you know Juan Valdez?
a) …and his donkey?
b) …intimately?
19. Do you salivate uncontrollably whenever you hear dripping water?
20. Is sleep a hobby of yours?
a) …that you don’t like?
b) …because it’s too frustrating?


Response
Ratio -------------

Yes ---- No --------- Addiction Factor Analysis


20-22 -- 0-2 -------- You are a well-rounded member of society with a love for life and you are very wise.

17-19 -- 3-5 -------- You are a slightly jagged member of society, life’s okay but it could be better and you are relatively naive.

0-16 -- 6-22 -------- What are you, some kinda nature-freak tree-hugger!? Coffee’s not good enough for you, huh? Here, have some more TOFU! How about some ALFALFA TEA?!?



Hope you enjoy it!

AHh Coffee.:-) I love the stuff but can't drink a lot of it or I'll break out in tiny blisters over my arms and ITCH as if I had fleas.(No I haven't fleas:-) I promise.) I can drink 24 ounces of coffe at the most ina 24 hour period. More than that if I'm at a convention and am awake slugging down protien and water.

I enjoy beading too. Gotta find the bead thread so we all can talk beads and projects.:-) Rissa is introducing me to finger knotting.

Hmm. I've made some dark chocoalte truffles with a litle coffee in the heavy cream. They were good. it wasn't strong.


You know you're addicted to coffee when your dargon starts twitching from a secondary buzz and tells You "Drink coffee I'm going nuts!!!".

Your favorite entree:

Oh this is fantastic!! I work at a coffee shop. (not starbucks btw...) I need to print this out and take it to work. I love it! I'm such a nerd. We have this book at work called "All about coffee"...initial copyright 1930s, i think. I read it every saturday I work. Anyhoo...apparently coffee is non-habit forming. Raise your hand if you think that's a farce! I guess it's all in our heads.

HEHE..You just made me think of the other thread, about drunk riders. If the poor dragons get a buzz from their drunken riders....

Can you imagine the headache they would get from their riders who had NOT had their morning cup yet?!?!?!
