Disney on Saturday! So long, cunts!

Caffeine

I never thought caffeine used to give me trouble getting to sleep until I stopped drinking after 4pm.

But sometimes I forget. :(

Ooo, almost management degree of obfuscation of meaning. Almost there [please use 5 distinct time positions in one sentence, next time].

I was just thinking, that would be a better purpose for this board.  Instead of posting during working hours, why not post like you are doing, during late night caffeine stints. 

That's why I am still up, can't sleep from coffee earlier, so I'll just look for errors in data and code.  What else is there to do?

I am still up because I am crazy. Really.

Twice a year, we have 25 hour fasts, no food, no water. The hardest thing is the lack of caffeine.

Blinding, crippling headaches.

I stopped drinking caffeinated coffee every day because of those headaches.  I only drink coffee at work, so on the weekends, I'd get headaches.

Honestly can't tell the difference in how I feel after a cup of decaf as opposed to a cup of regular, unless the coffee is particularly good (Starbucks).  The coffee they serve at work apparently is not.

Pharisee, one of them is Yom Kippur.  When's the other one?

Maybe because of extraordinary intake during the previous decade, coffee actually makes me sleepy now. It is completely useless as a stimulant.

You two just confuse me.

Is that a good English sentence or not?

strawdog commands excellent written English even when awake at 3am.  Caffeine induced insomnia be damned!

[1] in the past

[2] habitual in the past, but before [1]

[3] in the past but *after* [1]

[4] a time reference, just for kicks

you a python or perl man? or maybe lisp? something synactically dense.
