Under-caffeinated writer. Please help.

Coffee imageAh, ladies and lads, you know I can be a bit kooky at times; hell, I can even get a little annoyed as well when things don’t go my way. I, therefore, won’t do it on this page.

At all.

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

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. Too loud.

Festivals? Nope. Neither. No way.

Restaurants? Every now and then.

Expensive shoes and handbags? Oh, I wish, but I’m quite happy with the pair of tall, black Dr Martens boots I got two years ago.

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

By now, however, you probably wonder how on earth I can live such a boring life.

Perhaps you’re right.

In your opinion.

My opinion? I drink lots of coffee to stay awake each day so I can write and work on my blog. Fiercely, enthusiastically, stubbornly so to make up for the times when trigeminal pains prevent me from writing and looking after my blog.

Blogs like mine, however, are sometimes hungry for upgrades and updates to keep it stylish, contemporary and filled with researched news, images and stories. Yes, before I write gobbledygook, I read, and read, and read even more about gobbledygook.

People like myself, however, are often in need of coffee. Lots of it. From morning till night. Brought my Senseo coffee machine from the land of chocolate and well, my origin, to make sure my inner system is caffeinated, properly caffeinated.

If you feel you, therefore, want to contribute and keep 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 want to contribute, this is fine also. It will not change the relationship that exists between reader and writer.
