Haha, sounds good. I saw that little scene in the Coldplay thread, that was promising.

The sad thing is, I have had to resort to those nasty energy drinks now.

I had a Victorian one today that nearly suffocated me. Still, anything's better than warm coffee.

I'm finding out coffee's not that bad. French Vanilla and French Roast are the best, with milk and a bit of sugar.

Of course Edge's IQ is probably that of the other three members combined and then some.
I feel like you could summarise Bono's quote as "yeah, Edge was into this music, and it was cool and African ... and stuff". But if you replace 'African' with a similarly generic descriptive word appropriate to the band, that's probably the extent of Bono's thoughts on ANY music outside of the Beatles. Joy Division? Cool and dark ... and stuff. Radiohead? Cool and experimental ... and stuff. Bob Dylan? Cool and poetic ... and stuff. Nickelback? Cool and rockin' ... and stuff.

I still don't know how the fuck Edge puts up with these three tag-alongs in his band.

The only way I can make coffee drinkable is to load it with so much sugar that it defeats the point entirely.

Apparently I actually make a pretty good coffee; my mother tries to con me into making her coffee any chance she gets. So I'm kind of disappointed I find it vile stuff, since I'm pretty sure coffee would work out a much cheaper drink per cup/glass than orange juice does.

Seconded. Black coffee is vile and sometimes hurts my stomach pretty badly.

Speaking of orange juice, the best drink in the world is freshly squeezed orange juice.

Maybe I should prepare some and Mia it up a bit sometime.

OK, everyone, my supervisor just left, so I'm done for the day.

I'll be back later on today, so catch you then!

My mother not only drinks her coffee as black as it gets, but also so hot that it's quite possibly the leading cause of global warming.

I don't know how she does it.

Got to admit, I can't stand all the pithy nastiness of freshly squeezed orange juice. I know, for a guy who grew up essentially in the country on all kinds of fresh stuff, I should be shouting the virtues of freshly squeezed orange juice from the rooftops, but ... I'm not.
