One cup is one cup.

27 Aug

I am a coffee drinker.  Well decaf.  Still a coffee drinker.  On weekdays, I bring my mugfull of coffee to work.  By 3 pm, I go down to the coffee cart for a second hit. 

On weekends because of the irregular schedule, I usually just have one cup at breakfast.  Too busy to crave for coffee, that’s me on weekends. 

So, one Sunday when I brewed coffee for breakfast I made sure I had made extra for my afternoon craving.  I drink my coffee with whatever I am having for breakfast.  Hubs usually drinks his about half an hour after he finished his breakfast, while reading the Sunday papers.  OJ is his drink of choice for breakfast. 

 I made mention that there is extra coffee after he fills his cup and instructed him to keep it in the fridge as I wanted to have iced coffee later in the day.  I ran my errands, did my chores, surfed online, watched the tube, etc.  I completely forgot my coffee.

At dinner time, I thought I’d have my iced coffee then.  No worry it was decaf.  I fixed it to my taste and added some ice cubes.  When I sat down and drank it, it tasted like blah.  WTF?  I looked at my hubs and told him my coffee tasted like crap, okay it tasted like coffee-flavored water.  He smiled and said, he added water to it because there wasn’t enough left to fill one cup.  One cup is one cup he said.  I expected one cup, one cup is what I got.  Hubs can be funny sometimes.   Oh well, he shared the drink with me.

Have you heard American Idol is adding a fourth judge next season?  Is it really to follow the original pattern of the British Pop Idol having four judges or to have some female on the panel that can have a sensible thing to say? 

Do I want this shake up?  I don’t.  If I want to hear something truthful and sensible, I’d want to hear it from Simon anyway.  My take:  if it aint broke, don’t fix it.   What do you think?

Better late than never post.  I have particularly enjoyed the Olympics this year.  Being a Winter Olympic fanatic, I found myself following the summer version this year.  The last summer Olympics that I remember watching was during the time of the Magnificent Seven, the victorious American gymnasts. 

Anyway, this year, I found myself watching diving, swimming, volleyball, basketball, track and field, rowing, and of course gymnastics.  That Shawn Johnson is too cute, isn’t she?

    I like coffee, too – and it has to be decaf. I’m not allowed to have caffeine. Your hubs was funny!

    I agree with you – I would not want the new addition to American Idol. The three of them are entertaining enough. And the person they chose is a songwriter, not at all exciting.

    Shame we didn’t win any medal at the Olympics. I could not believe that we failed to take home any medal even in boxing.

    Thanks for visiting A Pinay In England and leaving your comments. Perhaps I can interest you to visit my other blogs. I would especially like your thoughts on my latest post on I, Woman.

    Yup, if it ain’t broke… If I wasn’t busy with Evan I would probably have been glued to the Olympics this year, I don’t know there’s something about being in the US that makes you want to be a part of the cheering squad 🙂

    I’m a coffee freak too but limit my intake to 3 cups a day – breakfast and lunch and a cup at night, whether it’ll be at a home or a coffee shop at the mall or a drive thru 🙂 Coffee is now part of my existence it seems 🙂

    A 4th judge won’t be bad. Canadian Idol has 4 judges – a former rock band member, a female recording artist and 2 record execs. Only problem is, in the eliminations, it could result in a tie so what they do is , if 2 judges vote yes, the contestant is in.
