Thursday Thirteen 19th

I believe humans get a lot done, not because we're smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee. ~Flash Rosenberg

You’ve had too much coffee when….

1. You can take a picture of yourself from ten feet away without using the timer.

2. Instant coffee takes too long.

3. You help your dog chase its tail.

4. You answer the door before people knock.

5. You can speak perfect Arabic without ever taking a lesson.

6. Your taste buds are so numb you could drink your lava lamp.

7. You grind your coffee beans in your mouth.

8. You can type sixty words per minute with your feet.

9. You forget to take the wrapper off your candy bars before eating them.

10. You have to watch videos in fast-forward.

11. Your nervous twitch registers on the Richter scale.

12. You’re so jittery that your friends use your hands to blend their margaritas.

13. Your eyes stay open when you sneeze.

Get the Thursday Thirteen code here!
The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged!

I love coffee but I think I'm too far away from these lists yet.

Oh, those are GREAT!

I think I'm glad I don't drink coffee now; drinking lava lamps is a hell of a visual but not something I suspect I'd survive...

Happy TT!

Hi Raggedy,

Can you do me a favour? Um, I'm trying to post a comment at this woman's blog:

and it won't allow anyone who doesn't have a "live msn" membership to comment...

I've tried to sign up for live msn and can't...and maybe she doesn't know her blog is doing that?

If you could let her know I'm trying to visit for me?

Sorry to touble you but I feel bad about not being able to comment on her blog...and she might get a lot more visitors if it's easier to comment?
