Frivolous Sidebar:

Oh yeah. And, for some bizarro and completely unforseen reason, I have...given up Coke for the time being.

*waits for the weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth to subside*

Yes. I know. Coke is life, and I love that acidic engine-block cleaner more than food itself. But I just...felt the need to lay off it for a while. I drink two or three a day, sometimes more, and that just can't be right.

Plus, I'm sure the caffeine doesn't help.

I haven't had so much as a sip for two days, and the expected caffeine headache hasn't set in yet. I'm a little disturbed at that. Is it possible for caffeine effects to build up?


Anyway, I'm not giving it up forever, of course. Just long enough that a single can every now and then satisfies. And I may drop the whole experiment with saving my bones and stomach lining after a week or so, laughing it off as a bizarre turn of the moment. I reserve that right, heh.

But for now, no Coke. *sigh* No caffeine, except perhaps iced tea. The last time I experimented thus, I gave up all caffeine for a month, and it didn't do anything but make me wish for a Coke like a drowning man wishes for dry air. This time, who knows?

I don't really know why I'm doing this, other than that I probably shouldn't be drinking so much Coke in the first place, and that it gets expensive to feed that kind of habit after a while in the second place. I dunno.

Fear my whimsy!! FEAR it!

Stay back! I'll tip it!

I fear the whimsy! That whimsy kept me in the writing game!

I also gave up coke a while back and I've gone down from three cans a day to about one a week, even less. Its done wonders for my skin more than anything else.

*realises this sounds like a Coke-drinkers Anonymous meeting*

I promise you, its easier than you think. But giving up sugar...

Now that is the test of will!

Oh! About Dojo Heroes...

There are some PCs that are already taken, but I'm sure a Geburah neko would be GREAT fun! I'm so chuffed that you're going to join!'re becoming a right Rhodent, aren't you? First nationstates (man, Zogeta is a POOR-ASS state) and now DH...kyahahaha!

Welcome to DH! Membership is jumping up and by the end of the week we should start the game. Hurrah!

Well, the ultimate goal is to cut down on pop almost entirely, except for once in a while at a restaurant or while on the road or something. It's not so much giving up caffeine or sugar, but the combination and the carbonation on top. I dunno.

It actually hasn't been that hard. I accidentally bought a Mountain Dew this morning and just about threw a fit. I'd wanted the Lipton's Iced Tea with Lemon that I know is in there, but I only get MD out of that machine, so when I put in my dollar, I just pushed the usual button.

Before the damn thing even dropped out the bottom, I was whining, "NOOOOO! DAMMIT!"


So I drank it because I can't bear to waste a buck, but that's really been it for caffeine and sugar, drink-wise. Oh, well.

Ooooooh. First Wanda, now you. What's the world coming to??? Fear whimsy indeed! I am proud of you, though. Don't ask me to give up my coffee.
