Weird thing #5922 about me:

I've never had a cup of coffee. Not even one sip. Don't like the smell much. /shrug

Relatedly, my husband has worked for one of the biggest coffee shop's distribution hub for the last 10 years so I could buy all the premium coffee I wanted at cost ($2 a lb.) if I liked coffee - which I don't - but I've never been remotely interested in taking advantage of this fact. (At least for myself. Let's just say we're very well liked around the neighborhood and leave it at that. lol.)

I do love a good cup of Earl Grey tea though.

I didn't touch coffee until I discovered you could put chocolate in it. LOL

LOL - ditto what Marnie said!

Michele said...

I'm addicted ... I probably drink your allotment! lol but when I'm sick, it's tea for me. I always know when I'm getting sick cause coffee tastes horrible.

and yes, you're weird :)

Melanie said...

I love chocolate but, nope, that won't do it either. :)

Catherine said...

I'm so with you...not a coffee drinker, love tea and especially chocolates of all kind!

Some days I like coffee and some days I hate the smell. These days I only drink coffee (espresso actually) in a latte.

But, a nice steaming cup of Earl Grey? That I can go for any time of day or night.

What?! I am non-functional without coffee. Seriously. I manage to get to work on fumes and once there, coffee has to be had or I stare blankly at the computer for hours.

I like tea too though. I guess that makes me caffeine-dependent? lol

I don't like coffee either. Bleagh! Love coffee ice cream though! Just finished reading a novel called "The Various Flavors of Coffee" by Anthony Capelle (sp?) Good book, and related to coffee too. :D

Another non-coffee drinker, here, Melanie! But, I, like Margaret, love coffee ice cream!.

I don't like tea either--I guess I just don't like warm drinks (although a nice cup of cocoa sounds great on this chilly day).

Jackie said...

I don't like the taste either. Not even in ice cream!

Margaret said...

Love love love your sweater below. Great job! And the color is terrific.

I like coffee AND Earl Grey. Depends on what mood I'm in.

Join the club! Can't stand coffee either. Myself its a nice cup of Orange Pekoe

Sylvia said...

Hmm, I love coffee - but the caffeine does not like me. Can you believe that its hard to find good decaf whole bean coffee in Germany... oh well.

I missed your post on your finished hoodie ( probably was jetting to/from US at the time). It looks fabulous. I bet you are so pleased to be done with it.

Coffee is like oxygen to me. Luckily, I'm not affected by caffeine, so I drink way too much of it.

I do like tea - always drink iced tea when I go out to eat. And I love a hot cup of tea (current favorite is Republic of Tea Cinnamon Cardamom) about an hour before bedtime.

But I will drink coffee anytime it's offered. LOL!

Oh dang! I've been blog friends with a weirdo all this time and didn't know it. Next thing you'll say is that you enjoy cleaning and then we're in serious trouble. ;)

ROFLOL, just kidding!! I love coffee. It's the sacred brown elixir of life that is only enhanced with a bit of Splenda and some half and half. I have been trying to get better about drinking more tea, though.

And just in case you needed confirmation that *I* am a weirdo, all I can think is that if your husband works in the distribution hub dealing with coffee--he must smell really good, like a coffee bean. MMmmmmmmm... (about the coffee bean, not your DH. ahem. I need to stop now...)

Maggie said...

Used to drink coffee by the bucket load, now i hardly touch it, strange.
Now, Earl Grey, that is my grey favourite drink too :-)

Julie said...

I'll raise a toast with my Earl Gray tea to you, i'm not a coffee lover either

Pumpkin said...

Very interesting!
