Ooh, a coffee would be lovely right now, it's cold tonight. Though a hot chocolate would be a wiser idea.

Can't stand the flavour of coffee myself, but love certain teas, like Chai and Earl Grey. Can I stay in the coffee shop here anyway?

All beverages are welcome here! Throw in some cake, biscuits (cookies to you in the Americas) and other snacks of choice!

Oooo...I like chai! One of my friends from India made it for me when I was in college. It was so yummy!

Mostly, I prefer herbal teas or green teas. I have found a couple coffees that I really like too--HEB Texas Pecan coffee (yup, it's store brand coffee but so good), and Seattle's Best Decaffeinated coffee.

I have heard of shots, I would never, ever do them. I manage a cup of coffee every few days but I prefer tea, coffee can make me nervous. I have had friends and relatives who drink coffee all day long up until the time they go to bed. This fascinates me because I wouldn't sleep for a very long time if I did that, and they go right to sleep!!! How do they do that?

you are doing a smart thing by not wanting to do it Poomlie, i was jumpy for hours together and i could not sleep at all and i think i smelled like coffee for a day.
people regularly drink a lot of coffee or tea and i guess it just stops working as a stimulant. their threshold is higher. i usually limit myself to two cups of tea per day, anything more and i have trouble sleeping. helps me a lot when i have a lot of studying or driving to do.

hot chocolate so makes me homesick. my parents live on a farm so i get fresh milk every day. and to think that i have my exams between 17th and 2nd. groan! i need something stronger than coffee now.

How far do your parents live from you? Do you see them often? I am just curious. I wish you well on your exams, such a stressfull time. You seem very smart so I am sure you will do well. Good luck!

thanks Poomlie. i 'seem' to be smart but i am quite an academic failure, just hoping to get through. my parents stay 120 kilometers away, takes three hours to get there. i see them roughly once a month. we dont really celebrate christmas (hindus) but that is when the whole family is together and there is this festive air everywhere.
