I Have To Give Up Coffee?!

Lately I've been feeling sick to my stomach almost every single day. Not "flu-like" sick, but like my stomach wasn't agreeing with something that I was eating. I'm surprised that it took me so long to figure out the cause, because now it seems absolutely obvious – I only felt sick on the days that I drank coffee, and if I had a latte in the afternoon I'd end up feeling sick again later in the day.

So, it seems that for some reason my stomach doesn't agree with coffee anymore. It's not the caffeine, because I can still down cans of Mutton Dew and feel fine. And it's not a specific brand – my stomach seems to react the same way to coffee from Starbucks, McD, the local coffee shop, etc.

It just seems so strange that I'm going to have to stop drinking coffee. At least I can still have tea though. 🙂

    Nonono. I can have Mountain Dew, but not coffee. I usually don't mix them.

    Your amazon ad widget had books for Gerhard Richter and Cy Twombly. Cy Twombly rocks. I just came across his work a couple months ago.

    Coffee and Mountain Dew in the same day?! Why not have some hot peppers too? That'll "help" you. +single air quote pump+

    dood moose. The widget gives you results based on the viewer. You see Cy Twombly, because you must have him in your wish list. I have a completely different list of books in the widget here.

    But i have no idea why i'm seeing the following list of books in the widget now:
    Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy –Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse
    –Big Truths for Young Hearts: Teaching and Learning the Greatness of God
    –Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross: Experiencing the Passion and Power of Easter
    –Some Songs by Jim Pearson

    –Big Truths for Young Hearts: Teaching and Learning the Greatness of God is published by the company i work for.

    Why is my amazon ad widget showing a Kelly Clarkson CD? I have never looked up her music and I have never purchased her music. How does Amazon know I am a fan of American Idol? I only watch the show. I have never purchased any CDs from any singers (note I didn't say artists) from American Idol. I think 95% of the stuff that American Idol singers produce is pure garbage. Though I really enjoy watching the television program for several reasons of which I won't go into right now.

    It builds the recommendations off of your search history and items that you've viewed, not necessarily purchased.

    Paula is not "several reasons". 😛

    It is probably the tannins.

    Well, now that you have discretionary coffee money…

    Those freeze dried strawberries are funky though. It's better with fresh strawberries!

    I kinda like the freeze-dried strawberries. They have a unique *CRISP* to them.
