Under-caffeinated writer. Please help.

Coffee imageAh, ladies and lads, by now you know I can be a bit kooky at times. Hell, I can even get a little cranky when chronic pain is interlaced with a whacky sense of fatigue. I will, therefore, try to remain un-kooky today.

Please allow me, so, to ask you for a small favour, no strings attached, no problemo if you can’t!

Where others might ask for a pint… I don’t drink alcohol, so I won’t fall down on my knees begging you for a shot of brain cell killers.

I also won’t fall down on my knees asking you for a fag… as I don’t smoke. If others want to turn their fine, red lungs to utter blackness, the true colour of hell… their lungs, not mine!

I don’t do hard or soft drugs either… so your money is safe.

Concerts… No, unless I can sit down.

Festivals… Nope. Neither. No way.

Restaurants… Every now and then.

Expensive shoes and handbags… Nope, I’m quite happy with the pair of tall, black Dr Martens boots I got a few years ago.

Car… Nope once again. Cause: lack of proper concentration and funny numb soles of my feet. Probable effect: the car wrapped around a tree in no time, with me dangling from its branches.

(I just caught your eyebrows flip-flopping from wondering how on earth I can live such a boring life).

Perhaps you’re right. In your opinion.

My opinion? I write and work on my blog. Fiercely, enthusiastically, stubbornly so.

So… why am I writing this tale of unkookiness?


What?! To write and work on my blog.

Really?! Fiercely, enthusiastically, stubbornly so to make up for the times when trigeminal pains prevent me from writing and looking after my blog.

So?!? Blogs like mine are sometimes hungry for upgrades and updates to keep it stylish, contemporary and filled with research news, images and stories.

And?! Yes, yes! Before I write gobbledygook, I read, and read, and read even more about gobbledygook.

In order to do so, yours truly is often in need of coffee. Lots of it. From morning till night. Being caffeinated, properly caffeinated, is hard work. As is maintaining this blog.

If you feel you, therefore, want to contribute and either keep my blog looking swell OR if you want to see me filled with fantastic cups of coffee, then yours truly will do a hula hoop(ish) dance to thank you! Just click on the Donate button and you’ll be directed to the coffee bank.

If you feel you don’t, no hard feelings, this is fine also. It will not change the relationship that exists between reader and writer.

Thank you either way!
