Caffeine Mania

I’ve just woken up from a 16 hour sleep. And I was sleeping a bit before that as well. Some sort of lurking virus, but even so, I suspect it was more to do with sleep loss due to caffeine. Those short blacks and small cappuccinos are really starting to run my life.

Not just me, but the whole western world I think. Some scholars try to pinpoint the start of the Enlightenment Era to the introduction of Coffee Houses in Europe. Far fetched? It certainly allows humans to get through some really difficult mental work.

Oh well, I’m going to head off to get a super caffeine hit. Read more about this legal insanity here.

    Personally, I am a tea belly – unsurprisingly, as I come from a long line of tea drinkers. Given half a chance, I drink tea almost continually. I drink it “black”, which according to the latest findings, has advantages for one’s health.

    I do have coffee at home and occasionally go through “coffee fads” but I always come back to tea.

    Tea was reputedly used in Buddhist monasteries to help monks stay awake while meditating but I don’t find tea stimulates me in that way. In fact I often have a cup of tea as a bedtime drink!
