Why I Should Not Have Coffee In The Afternoon

Was in the office yesterday with Shini and both of us were doing everything we could to avoid doing our appraisals. We sent emails, updated spreadsheets, arranged meetings, went for said meetings, surfed the net, MSNed, you name it.

In a bid to procrastinate some more, we decided to sneak out of the office and get ourselves a drink from Coffee Bean. How could we resist all the Christmas drinks that the coffee chains were churning out? Peppermint this and caramel that. Yummy.

Anyway, dark chocolate peppermint latte in hand, we happily skipped back to the office, content that we managed to kill another 15 minutes of our day.

Fast forward to last night, or early this morning specifically. My eyes were WIDE AWAKE, and my mind was racing and I couldn't fall asleep! I tried watching a couple of episodes of Scrubs, tried reading Dead Before Dark (which *always* puts me to sleep, stupid Sookie), but nothing worked.

I looked at the clock and it was already 3am. Then 4am. And by the time I finally dozed off, I'm pretty sure it was time to wake up. So now, I'm sitting on the train on my way to work, with huge bags hanging under my eyes and my brain in snooze mode.

Have a flight to catch today. I guess I'll have to sleep on my way there. Yay! Less than 24 hours to my holiday! :D

So your eyes were wide awake, and the rest of you was fast asleep? LOL

You are hopelessly affected by caffeine! I find that hard to understand, seeing as how I'm unbelievably immune to it. Which is great - I can enjoy coffee anytime!

Yah I used to be able to drink coffee any time without it affecting me so much BUT DUNNO WHAT HAPPENED.
