Current Mood: Drunk...(no, not really)

...if by "drunk", you mean "Oh snap, I had too much caffeine."

I rerealized today why I do not ever ingest that many cups of tea. I quit coffee for reasons. Or it could be the sugar or the sugar AND the caffeine. At any rate, it's like sticking my brain on a roller coaster where the big climb takes hours, the view gets increasingly dizzying by the minute, and the drop is sudden and devastating. In less than an hour from now, I am probably going to crash like nobody's business and fall asleep beside my unmade bed or on top of the clean sheets. I knew I should have made the bed as soon as I pulled the sheets from the dryer, well right after I got into the house where my bed actually is located, of course.

I have just passed the, "Oh my gosh, everything is FUNNY!" stage and am entering the "Wow. I could get so much done in this hyper alert state" stage.

One of my old co-workers, Derrick, said that he could always tell when I had had sugar or caffeine because my personality would just shift and my eyes would get dinner-plate-big.

I probably should have hid the keyboard from myself. Oh well.


So. Life!


Familial stuff is *crosses various appendages but not too many*, good and getting better each day. I would eye this warily and with suspicion but the caffeine high is blotting out the fear center of my brain. I don't think that we actually have a fear center. I know it's supposed to be the Amygdala, sort of, but I think it's a vastly misunderstood creature. I like my amygdala because it gives me such handy information like, "Oh my god....that dress is a truly hideous color. Must destroy it with FIRE." and "I love pudding! Yummy!" or "Aagghh!!"

But, yes. People are actually getting along and being, dare I say it, nice to one another. Hmm.

How do people get anything done drinking coffee and the like? How do they even focus? My thoughts are like demented ping pong balls.

I can't believe it's Wednesday already. x_x I mean, it's a good thing, but I feel like there are some things that I had hoped to have accomplished in my spare time before the end of the week which is fast approaching.

Speaking of, can somebody please tell me how in the blue, bloody hell we've arrived at May already??? Wasn't it just New Year's?? Jesus trucking crispy rice

Coming to a post near you (does that make sense?): photos of the quirky things that make this town where I live unique-ish. They include things like cats on leashes (and they're happy about it!), London Buses that are cruising around thousands of miles from their original point of origin on another continent (why??), Fro Yo places that demand that you eat their trendy, frozen treat and like it or else go get eaten by bears for all that they care, and Evil Traffic Lights of Doom that can smell your driving record and are judging you accordingly (and I do not mean those silly little cameras on top of the light pole either).

You think I'm kidding, or that it's the caffeine talking.
But seriously, I took some photos that seemed fairly typical of this place. :)

As a side fannish note or a fannish side note (?), I finally finished watching Season 8 of Doctor Who. Wow. It is nice to know that Moffatt is digging into the same Big Fat Bag of Crack as RTD. That finale though. I liked it! Woah. Yeah. It was epic and bonkers. Still processing.

Going to wander off to shower and bed now...before I really type something crazy.

LOL, caffeine/sugar-driven ramblings are fun to read! Looking forward to your pictures of Unitrans. (I'm a fellow UCD alum, though I'm a lot older than you are -- I went there back in the '80s.)

:) Another UCD alumn!
I was planning on going to Whole Earth this past weekend, but I almost completely missed it. x_x

I love your icon!

Will have pics next time. The weekend rolls around and I disappear into a black hole.

I @#$%ing love you. This post was beyond Epic, really.

We should do a couple of shots of caffiene together sometime and solve the problems of the universe while we still have the jitters and funny stars shooting behind our eyeballs.

Looking forward to the photos. Now terrified of visiting though, as Fro Yo sounds like Darth Vader had a party in the middle of your local. Yeesh.

*HUGS*

I am glad that you enjoyed it! :DDD

YES. Sounds like a plan. I felt so sugar and caffeine wasted the next morning though.

:)

*hugs back*

about me

Welcome to my livejournal of randomness. Probably everyone boasts a random journal. I read loads of books, write, garden, work, and well isn't that sufficient?! And I like my bicycle, a lot. And swans. And Doctor Who.

I can't believe I finally did NaNoWriMo and finished! I am continuing the novel I started in November. It contains swans.
