Mary and I went for coffee yesterday, and I think they gave me one, perhaps two, cups of regular coffee by mistake. As a result, I was in bed, awake and having to go to the bathroom every half hour, until 4 AM. I should have suspected something when I felt like I was going cross-eyed all evening yesterday. I'll live, though my diastolic BP is a little high (I have a feeling it's because I just ate). I just have a nasty lack-of-sleep headache.

2008 is getting off to a roaring start.

Which reminds me, I should take the 2007 calendar off the wall and replace it with the 2008 calendar, which is a freebie from church and tells me that today is the joint feast of St. Basil the Great and St. Gregory Nazianzen, bishops and doctors of the church. So, happy feast day to everyone, and hope your day is a good one.

I have not had coffee since 1998... I have never been a coffee drinker, and I had some after a concert. It was Waffle House coffee. I didn't sleep that night, and was completely sick the next day.

I'm a tea lady.

Caffeine's a big no-no for me since the stroke, so I haven't intentionally had regular coffee, Red Bull (that was my downfall in February) or anything else that's caffeinated (with the exception of chocolate, and not much of that, either) since then. That includes iced or hot tea; Mary got some tea that she swore was decaf, but it wasn't, and the same thing happened then.

I've lived here for twenty years and can count on one hand the number of times I've been to a Waffle House. The first time was Hallowe'en 1987, the day we moved here from Chicago. We stopped at a Waffle House in Chattanooga, and everyone was in costume, including the waitresses and cooks. I remember getting coffee that night, and I remember it had the same effect on me...

Having lived within the same 50-mile Metro Atlanta radius my entire life (save for 3 years in Athens, but that's close enough), Waffle House is in my blood.
