Samuel’s Coffee Challenge: 1am update A bit of good news though

Samuel’s Coffee Challenge: 5am Update

November 10th, 2008 at 05:06am

The hourly coffee tallies so far:

1pm: 1 coffee
2pm: 4 coffees
3pm: 2 coffees
4pm: 1 coffee
5pm: 1 coffee
6pm: 1 coffee
7pm: 1 coffee
8pm: 2 coffees
9pm: 1 coffee
10pm: 1 coffee
11pm: 2 coffees
12am: 1 coffee
1am: 1 coffee

Total: 19 coffees

And with that, I’m aborting the experiment. I don’t think I can possibly drink another coffee…the mere thought of it repulses me. I suppose the fact that I was already feeling pretty lousy before I started this didn’t help, I now feel a lot worse, and I can’t wait until the end of my shift so that I can climb in to bed and sleep for hours and hours and hours. As much as I probably shouldn’t write this publicly, it’s been that quiet at work tonight that I did take the opportunity to nap for about an hour. The floor is very uncomfortable.

I think I’ve been coming down with something for about the last week. I’ve been persistently tired to the point of almost sleeping more than I’ve been awake, I’ve had a headache that hasn’t gone away for the last three days, I’ve had almost no appetite and in general I just haven’t been feeling well. As I’ve been working on the relatively quiet night shift I’ve been dragging myself in to work each night, but I’m starting to think that I’m going to struggle to even do that.

Oh, and for anyone who’s thinking of trying to beat my coffee-drinking effort…don’t, seriously. It’s a really really bad idea. Just as there is a responsible service of alcohol system, there really should be a responsible service of coffee system.

    Samuel. Gordon and Stewart, you should REALLY end such blog posts with a wrning, as you all do with your wildly errant racing tips:

    Excessive caffeine intake can harm the health of a foetus in pregnant women

    (Sorry, I didn’t apply your equally errant policy of random capitilsation in headlines).

    “Excessive caffeine intake can harm the health of a foetus in pregnant women”

    That’s just a tad too specific, how about “Excessive caffeine intake can harm your health”?
