Monday's Pretty Things


How is that I have not yet done a coffee edition of Monday’s Pretty Things? This essential needs no introduction, so without further ado…

DRINK COFFEE Do stupid things faster and with more energy

This postcard makes me laugh, even though I see it every single morning — it’s taped onto our coffee jar. (Note that this is one of the very rare times I will post an image on my blog without a link back to the source. I’m a firm believer in properly crediting the artist, as explained in Design*Sponge’s informative piece, How to Credit.)

(P.S. If that was me in the morning, the clothes would be Christmas flannel pants and a hoodie…and the dog would be a Papillon ;-)

When you click on the link you have to scroll way, way, way down to get to the decadent recipe for that coconut mocha. Now, who’s making me one tomorrow morning?!

I don’t understand people who don’t drink coffee.

Do You Know How I Feel - Exploding Dog - Coffee Humor

“Do you know how I feel?” coffee comic via Exploding Dog

I burst out laughing every time I read this comic. Because it’s ludicrous? No, because it’s absolutely and completely true, Chaaa’lie (said in my Lola voice.)

I measure my life in coffee spoons. -T.S. Elliot  Vol 25 Art

“I measure my life in coffee spoons”, a T.S. Elliot quote print via Vol. 25

This quote always reminds me of a snippet of lyrics from “Seasons of Love”, the only Broadway song I like.

“Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights
In cups of coffee…”

Now, I’m off to bed so I can wake up and have my coffee!

  1. no! i can’t believe you tease me like this! i broke our coffee maker the day we left for our trip. we came back last night and discovered it’s still broken (yeah, i was secretly hoping either little fairies would come and fix it while i’m gone… or that me braking the thing was just a bad dream).
    ah, how do i get my coffee now? what a dilemma! :)
