“Before coffee, I’m up, I’m moving around, but I’m not awake,” said some wise soul somewhere. Until I typed the words, I actually couldn’t remember where I’d heard it but I just did. Peter Falk uttered this truism in one of his Columbo episodes.
Truer words (about me) were never spoken.
How did I get here?
My other favorite coffee quote is from a Tom Hanks in You’ve Got Mail:
“I love Patricia. Patricia’s amazing. Patricia makes coffee nervous.”
I have surrounded my coffee drinking with cool stuff. (Why should the tea drinkers have all the fun rituals?)
- A Keurig, so that I never have to wait more than 30 seconds for my coffee.
- Coffee straws (see picture), just because I like them.
- Cute mugs, like the Dunkin Donuts one pictured here. I have several of these because they remind me of my Dad (who was a doughnut maker once) and my friend Sheri (who bought me one I really wanted one year for my cubicle at work when I really didn’t need another coffee mug).
- My little coffee warmer. Okay, so I have two of these: one in my home office and one next to my bed. They make me happy.
My current favorite coffee is Green Mountain’s Spicy Eggnog, about which I often wax rhapsodic. Alas, it is a seasonal flavor.
So, I buy it by the case. My friend Traci told me about Big Cat Coffees and the pricing there is FAB.U.LOUS.

Thanks for responding! And thanks for catching my mistake (now fixed) with naming the wrong movie for the Patricia quote. In my defense, I had not yet had my coffee! And here’s one more quote: “I get by with a little help from my friends.” Who said THAT? 😀
I’m afraid I’m not very exciting…I like the coffee flavored kind.
