Guess who totally boned making coffee this morning?

That'd be me.

I thought the whole "get going in the morning" procedure had gone awfully fast. It'll do that if you omit about a third of it.

Yeah, mornings and I are not getting along AT ALL lately.

Maybe it's just a Winter thing.

It is. Coffee is one of the few things that can convince me to fully wake up in h morning. This morning, not so much. ;)

--Cuppa coffee, a bowl of oatmeal and about half a blood orange later, I'm doin' pretty well.

it's hibernation weather. EVERYONE wants to stay in bed, even the coffee.

Tam, if making coffee is 1/3 of your morning routine, you are the lowest maintenance human being on the planet. I mean, the lowest I ever get is 1/4: "Sh**, shower, shave, coffee" I am duly impressed.

og,

Tam probably doesn't have to shave every morning, so there you go . . .

Tam said...

The actual "getting going" part is just the morning constitutional, take care of the cats, and make the coffee. The rest comes after I've gotten going.

...also, we use a Chemex and a teakettle here at Roseholme Cottage, so coffee is maybe a more involved process here than it is elsewhere...

I'm afraid I'm not awake enough to handle making coffee until I've had a cup of coffee. Thankfully my wife understands this and handles the first 24ozer of the day.

No coffee no wakee. Automatic drip-machine must do majik.

Caffeine is my primary neurotransmitter. I have, fortunately, weaned myself down from two airpots before noon. SWMBO told me I twitched in my sleep when I was drinking it in gallon quantities. Currently, it's 12:45CST and I've had 3 large cups since 1000.

On a happy note, I've got 220 run to my espresso machine and plumbed it into the bar. Now I don't have to settle for drip.

Regards,
Rabbit.

Aint't the Chemex cool? I just can't wait for that nor can I be coherent enough at that time in the AM. I have to have the drip machine turn on by timer to function normally.

No, I would not accuse Tam of having to shave daily, but unlike me, she has hair that must be tended to.

Yet another reason I get my morning caffeine from Diet Mountain Dew. Its pretty hard to screw up popping the top on a can.

Tam said...

I wash my vitamins down with a Vault Zero while waiting for the coffee to brew.

Then have a second one later.

I need to stop doing that on the mornings of bowling pin matches...
