caffeine curve

    Newer Older

    Oh man. This cracks me up.

    I used to have this on a coffee cup until it cracked and went off to join the other Great Coffee Cups of Yore in the great Coffee Pot in the Sky.

    Right now, as of this posting, I'm at "Excellent Work Habits," which means it would be more meaningful if I was working and not doing Flickr.

      emdot, this is fantastic. I am only recently catching up with some of your work, and I am just DIGGING the charts and illustrations.

      brian -- yea -- stoked you are checking things out. however -- i didn't draw this one (i wish). this is by a really clever guy named tom edwards who used to make (still makes?) funny "wally" ceramicware. :)

      I used to think that a caffeinated Tracey was a happy Tracey, now I know that she's been at "Triple Shotgun Murder" for the last week.

      Oh yeah! I like this string.. Greg Brown playing in the background "Java and me, JAVA,Java, Java, it likes me" This morning there was fresh snow in Utah, i took my bathrobe out to the patio and shot some froxen roses and I likes my coffee very "blonde"

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Don't Talk To Me Before I've Had My Coffee (or Tea), and we'd love to have your photo added to the group.

      great graph, and the comments in this thread are hilarious which I'm sure I'd appreciate even more if it wasn't 11:50 at night, well past the afterwork crash.

      Yes, coffee is great, yes espresso french press mornings are an intense way to begin a slow morning when you're forced to wake up. But the ups and met with the downs as the curve shows. Try tea, its smooooove. And another pro of an alternative to coffee --- 3 of my contacts have experienced, burning an ulcer in your stomach from overdosing on coffee is not a pleasant thing to have happen to you.

      Craziest thing ever -- my coworker started passing this link around. I was like, holy cow, I know emdot! He had no idea that I used to work with you. So, small world, eh?

      (He said he saw it on )
