I have a ton load of work to get through today, no rest for the wicked even on the weekends. But I need to have at least 2 cigarettes, two coffees and a poke around my favorite sites like HubPages before I can get my head around starting anything that would actually put food on the table.
It is a daily ritual and although I work 12 hour days on average I could spend a lot more time on the job if I didn’t have the coffee, tobacco and HubPages thing going on. But I guess I need the stimulation and the downtime to stay productive. So here I am first cigarette and first coffee, 100 times more satisfying than any others I may have during the day.
I wonder how many others are out there are going through the same ritual - winding up for work. If I was non smoking and caffeine free I wonder what I would do?
Peter - that's the exact same ritual I have A few cups of coffee and a few fags while I have a quick look at my earnings for yesterday, check out the forums, my page views and the feed to see if I've missed anything interesting.
I'm on my first cup right now and my second fag is calling me
I'm going to be having a few working nights over the weekend as I've got so much to do....aaargh! So I'll be back to the ritual at about 8.30 tonight, lol
I impressed myself. I was hard core, but when I crossed the 45 year age divide - I really started to feel the ill effects that I had not noticed before. Then I watched one of my 65 y.o. neighbors carrying his oxygen bottle around every day and decided I did not want to end up like that.
