Caffeine, you are my friend

caffeineI'm feeling better now, thanks for asking. This morning I had to come to work and do my show without the benefit of the white crystalline xanthine alkaloid known as caffeine.  And I didn't like it one bit. I'm not trying to give up caffeine or anything sensible like that--I just had to fast for 12 hours before getting a cholesterol test. I must admit, I geared myself up all weekend to be a little off-kilter today, and that may have played a role in my groggy, fuzzy state of mind. Now that I've partaken in a long tall glass of McDonalds Coke, I feel a little closer to normal...and thought I'd do a little research into this chemical that has become my most beloved morning friend. Turns out caffeine is actually a psychoactive stimulant drug (which for some reason makes it seem more dangerous, and therefore, more appealing). 90 percent of Americans consume caffeine every day. Symptoms of caffeine withdrawal include headache, irritability, an inability to concentrate, drowsiness, insomnia, and pains in the stomach, upper body, and joints. (I'm glad I didn't read this list BEFORE I had the glass of soda). I've composed a little song to illustrate my feelings about the substance. It has the same tune as the Kiss song "Christine Sixteen." and features my real first name. Kathleen, Kathleen, Caffeine, Caffeine Caffeine, yeah yeah So mean, Caffeine, Kathleen Caffeine, yeah yeah! Okay...I guess it's a work  in progress. Maybe I'll add to it after a slam another can of Coke.

I can not function without my coffee in the morning. I once didn't have time for some and I was off kilter all day, it was awful. I have a blood test coming up next month and hate to not have my coffee first thing so, I set my appointment real early inthe morning and get home as fast as I can and start up the coffee machine. Don't mess with me before I have my coffee, just ask my husband. DBD

World's Worst iPod:Jay Ferguson "Thunder Island"
The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...

Songs for Tax Day
So I learned today that if you're getting a refund, there's no penalty for not getting your taxes in by today's deadline. But why would you want the government to keep your money any longer than they already do? With that question in mind...
