Re: What Are You Drinking?

I am all about the pot of coffee a day, or as much of the pot as I can get. I usually have two to three cups a day, black, occasionally with a dash of milk/cream. Though if I am being trendy I will put in La Lechera or a flavored cream.

I drink half-caff now. Or weaker full-caf. I developed a little bit of a sensitivity to too much caffeine, and I'd already hit the saturation point where it wasn't doing anything to keep me alert, I would just drink it to stave off the headaches. (Turns out your brain produces adenosine to counteract the expansion of blood vessels that caffeine triggers, so that constriction in the absence of caffeine gives the headaches.)

Anyway, I drink a couple of cups in the morning, then I'm cold turkey on caffeine for the rest of the day. Outside of days where I'm feeling exceptionally awful, it works splendidly. For the times that it doesn't, Dr. Pepper + Advil is a great combination. :)

Man, I have coffee with literally every meal, sometimes even at midnight. Caffeine doesn't seem to have much of an effect with me, unless I consume at least 200mg at once. And even then the buzz goes away after about 2 hours.

I'm on the opposite side of the spectrum. I either crash hard or vomit even harder. I can't stomach the stuff. And when I say "crash hard" I mean it. As an example, one morning after a macchiato (the real kind, not the starbucks caramel junk) I was walking up my stairs and decided the stairs would be an okay place to take a nap.

Spicy, low sodium, or regular?

Low sodium. It's what my girlfriend prefers.

That's what I get as well, but I add a dash of tabasco. Love V8, but hate the fact that "Vegetables" isn't the first ingredient.

I think I really just like the "regular" flavour. Love them sulfides.

Myself, just having just a little sake right now.

This stuff is much better than Jim Beam or Jack Daniel's honey whiskey. Much less syrupy, and not quite so sweet. My favorite flavored liquor right now.
