Coffee breath and other random things

This morning I woke up feeling tired and a a bit on the cranky side (The Boyf can vouch for this) - because of this I got to work and realised i could just not make it through the day on herbal tea, Sooooo *hangs head in shame* I grabbed the coffee instead . I have no will power(Yes, i am still trying to quit).
The coffee is so delicious and would be perfect if it wasnt for the rather strong guilt after taste....grrrrrrr....

I finally finished the book I have been reading. It took me much longer than usual as lately I have been reading at the pace of 10 year old with ADHD.

The book (Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen) was really great. It took me a chapter or so to get into it, but after that I enjoyed every page. I really liked the style of writing.

Last night The Boyf was out, So i found myself curled up on the couch watching "13 going on 30". I adore this film and Jennifer Garner is so adorable in it (how can anyone not like her?).

The film made me wonder what the 13 year old version of myself would think of the 28 year old version of me? Would "then" me be dissapointed with "now" me? Hope not.
The film also reminded me that its important to try remain young in spirit and not to let age make you too serious (if only i could remind myself of that all the time)

Only problem I have with the film is that i now have Michael Jackson's "Thriller" song trapped in my head. Every now and then i have to fight the urge not to break out into the "Thriller" dance. heehee....I forgot just how much Michael Jackson songs rocked (such a pity he is freak now).

"cause this is thriller, thriller night......lal la la la*"

Have a fabulous weekend, wonderful blog readers...catch you on Monday :)


  1. That movie is great. Except for the fact that now I've got Thriller playing on repeat in my head too! Thanks for that :P

    Have a great weekend

  2. Having coffee and chocolate in the morning is the only way to get over a cranky mood - don't worry. I have given up caffeine before but just don't think I can (or want to) do it again!

    As for keeping young at heart - interesting. I try to do that - I do wonder what 13-year-old me would think of 26-year-old me... hmmm?

  3. dont you just love coffee?
    why would you try and deny yourself that pleasure?!

    i'm not helping at all, am i?

  4. Mmmmmmm, java.....nope I could never quit coffee.

    I also saw the back end of 13 going on 30 last night, and seeing as I've never watched it before, I've decided I need a chick flick evening to see the whole thing. It really does look very cute :-)

  5. Tamara - heheehee..

    Msbehavn - My pleasure. Thanks, you have a great weekend too.

    BB- Its hard - oooh so hard to give it up..but i must try this detox thingy.

    Ruby - thank you.

    Dandooon - Nope, not helping. heehee. Maybe read my post about quitting:

    Arkwife - Its very cute and silly. You should definitely watch the whole thing.

  6. Maybe you could have coffee on alternate days? Not go completely cold turkey?

  7. I love that clock you have is awesome. I work on a giant trading floor with a bunch of dudes....I always yell " Its 6pm in South Africa" and 10 guys yell back....
    "STFU. fkn Loser!"

  8. Hmmm...13 going on 30.... that'll make a nice post.

  9. Don't worry if you slip up with quitting, just carry on the next day.
    That was actually a sweet movie, I remember it! Interesting question about what my young self would think of me now.
