funny, that.

If you spend a week laying way off of caffeine, limiting your dosage each day, and then drink a 32-oz. Diet Coke at a movie Friday night, you just might find that you have trouble falling asleep.

Tuesday: a couple cups of vanilla chai at work
Wednesday: 12 oz. Diet Coke, some vanilla chai
Thursday: 20 oz. Diet Coke, some vanilla chai
Friday: 24 oz. Diet Coke, some vanilla chai

I wish I didn't actually find myself craving the flavor of Diet Coke every so often. It's weird to be in that "mmm... eww..." mindset where I've made myself recognize the metallic flavor, but part of me doesn't care.

In other news, my New Years Resolution to order no French Fries is still intact.

Hey, I swore off french fries for New years too! :)

So far, so good for me as well.

And keep up the good work with caffiene, it is so worth it.

Oh, the french fries resolution is actually your fault. I have been having some microwave-based baked potatoes on occasion, to go with most meals I cook at home... some salt on the outer skin right after washing it and before tossing it into the microwave makes a Yukon Gold an excellent substitute.

It's the fried part I'm swearing off of, not the carbs ;-)

Wise, wise move. The fried part will KILL you.

I...miss...fried food, SO MUCH. (slumps against landspeeder and sobs like a Jedi)

I guess I made up for it with my nice breakfast of
homemade hash browns, then. Mm, fried.

However, I gave up Diet Coke cold turkey in, I think,
Fall 2003 or maybe even Fall 2002 and have not had a single
one since. I drank water every time I craved it at work
and started instantly sleeping better. I feel really
good about that.

Well, if I were to cook them myself, I think I could eat them, within the bounds of my resolution. I just resolved not to *order* french fries.

This is the first time in a while caffeine has affected my sleep schedule, though. And, I suppose it's actually possible some other influences might have affected my ability to sleep last night... :)

Just what sort of movie did you go to see?

:P

Not so much the movie as the walk that came afterwards :)
