A bit disconcerting

I have just admitted to myself that I drink coffee everyday.  I am not too extreme, I usually only have a cup or two, but everyday.  Okay, some days I will have six or seven cups- but not usually.

This is a bit disconcerting for me, but what is interesting is that it isn’t that I wake up tired and really need the caffeine.  I don’t even use an alarm most days because I am just writing my thesis whenever and however I can.  It is the calm that comes with sitting in my coffee corner in the morning that I like.  I can look out at the canal at that time of day when the sun reflects of the water and makes it sparkle.  This is my favorite time of day to sit and have coffee.

Perhaps I will just let myself drink an abundance of coffee until I finish my thesis.  Once I’m done then I’ll reconsider my health and my teeth and maybe switch to tea.  We’ll see.

At one point Matt was talking to a company that I think felt the same way about coffee.  They referred to certain job responsibilities- regular coffee tastings, working to appropriately describe coffee flavor and aroma.  How nice.  I should try to find the name of the company again.  I’ll let you know.

For now, I will just enjoy the coffee and forget the addiction that may or may not be playing a role.
