  1. You Know You’re Addicted To Coffee When…

    you answer the door before people knock.
    you grind your coffee beans in your mouth.
    you haven’t blinked since the last lunar eclipse.
    you lick your coffeepot clean.
    you’re the employee of the month at the local coffeehouse and you don’t even work there.
    you buy Half & Half by the barrel.
    you’ve worn out the handle on your favorite mug.
    you go to AA meetings just for the free coffee.
    you walk twenty miles on your treadmill before you realize it’s not plugged in.
    you forget to unwrap candy bars before eating them.
    you’ve built a miniature city out of little plastic stirrers.
    your taste buds are so numb you could drink your lava lamp.
    instant coffee takes too long.
    you have a picture of your coffee mug on your coffee mug.
    you can thread a sewing machine, while it’s running.
    you don’t even wait for the water to boil anymore.
    when someone says “How are you?” you say, “Good to the last drop.”
    you can’t even remember your second cup.

  2. […] “need coffee” — yeah, it’s getting kind of late. Though unless you’re planning to order coffee beans or grounds for future use, I’d recommend stepping away from the computer and turning on your coffee maker. Or walking across the street to the nearest Starbucks. (You know you need coffee when…) […]

  3. You realize that your full coffee cup sat at your desk more than 24 hours.

    This happens to me at mostly at the office. I sometimes forget that I made coffee. Wow! I never thought I needed coffee. hahaha… Nice post (and comments too!).
