Coffee Crisis

I'm on very little caffeine so far this morning (noontime?). I came into work and realized I had left my newly-purchased creamer at home. I decided to just deal with the plain creamer we have here. Except that we were out. In its place was some kind of Lite creamer which claimed to have 50% less fat than their regular creamer. I put it in my tumbler and sat down. Took one sip and almost threw up. So I went back and loaded it up with sugar. Tried it again. Not quite as bad, but still not drinkable.

I spent the new couple of hours in a groggy stupor, trying to remember what it was I do here. I told Chris about it, and he suggested I go to the cafeteria and look for some. I found some half-and-half, and in the little cafe we have here I found two tiny cups of french vanilla flavoured International Delight. I ran upstairs and threw one of those bad boys in (a fresh batch). *shake shake shake* *sip* Not enough. Threw another one in. *shake shake shake* *sip* Still not great, but drinkable.

I will not forget my creamer tomorrow.

hmmm. what kind of creamer do you use?

if the coffee isn't terribly weak, i usually just take it black. then again, most office coffee is pretty damn weak.

I'm pretty much addicted to vanilla caramel CoffeeMate.

Life's a lot simpler if you drink it black.

How is it simpler to go through life dreading drinking coffee?

I'm gonna quote my friend chris462 here and say "vile." Coffee without any creamer is quite unpalatable.

ha. yeah. office coffee in particular is almost gross without some additives. but, believe it or not, i've had some coffees that were so good, they didn't need anything extra.
