GOOOOOD MORNING VIETNAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's kind of how I feel like greeting people this morning, but I have managed to keep in check and instead offer the much more professional versions ("Good morning", "Hey", "Hi", "Yo", "Word up, homie".)

ANYWAYS, so something sort of crazy happened to me on the way to work this morning which resulted in me making a poor judgement call and giving in to what may become a severe addiction problem. Here is a transcript of an actual email that I sent to my homies this morning. (Note the time, which is way too early for this kind of enthusiasm.)

Woot! Hey, funny story... I got coffee again this morning because my bus driver didn't stop at Broadway despite people repeatedly yelling at him to let us off the bus... and he drove over the damn bridge... so then I had to walk to the other side to catch another bus back the other way... and then that bus let me off around the corner from the coffee shop... so then I figured "If I'm here ANYWAYS..." so then I got a coffee. For the 3rd day in a row. So ANYWAYS... after telling this story to Platypus he looked at me, kinda laughed nervously and said "Yeah. I can tell you've already had some." Apparently I talk like, reeeeeeealy fast and get a little jumpy and stuff when I have been caffeinated. Then I was telling him about how excited I am about Nearly Neil and I actually jumped up in the air. I think I am starting to scare people.

PS: If I had been telling you this story in person, can you imagine how I would have said it? Probably really fast without stopping to take a breath. CRAZY.

So basically, the point is that I have NEVER had coffee 3 days in a row before and I am concerned because I totally don't want to get addicted! But it is so yummy. But it makes me crazy. Anyone who knows me can probably imagine what I would sound like if I were actually saying this out loud right now. This means talking really fast and making lots of hand gestures and my eyes get a little big and glazed over. I think it scares people. They are like, "Okay... she is either going to start doing a dance or she is going to kill me. Could go either way."

But I honestly feel like I could run a friggin marathon right now. WOOOOOO! I'm sorry.

If you were smart, you would take my picture to all the coffee shops in the surrounding area and instruct those bitches to only give me decaf. (But please don't! I love it.) BAH!

To all those who must interact with me today: I'M SORRY!!!

PS: I should have mentioned that when I got off the bus on the other side of the bridge I said out loud (to myself) "Man, this is bush league!"

I lied. I just remembered that last year when I was volunteering at the jazz fest, I was working night shifts until 3 or 4 am and then starting volunteer shifts at 10, which meant I had to get up at 8:30 every day for a week. So I was way tired. One day I drank 3 cups of coffee. That shit was a little crazy. Can you imagine?
