Follow Friday & TGIF (14)

Q: Let's step away from books for a second and get personal. What T-Shirt slogan best describes you?

"No coffee, No Workee" You guys might think I'm joking. Well, I don't function without coffee. Luckily, I'm not one of those addicts (yet) that drink it from morning til night. But I do drag until I get that first cup of coffee in the morning. Sometimes, I don't feel human until the second cup. Coffee is what gets me through the day. I'm not one of those grouches that you avoid until you see a cup in my hand, but I am one of those people that overlook the most simplest of things because my brain isn't at full speed yet. Me - coffee = Dunce.

Character Envy: If you could be one character from a book, who would you choose & why?

I would love to be Kate Daniels from Ilona Andrew's work. Why? Because she's awesome. She's a tough chick, she can get herself into an awful lot of trouble but always manages to find her way out of it too. Plus, she's got a hot mate. I would totally want to be her just for Curran alone! What I really love about Kate, other than her being a kick butt chick, is that she's got a vulnerable side. She's learned over the course of several books to lean on others and she has such a great growth that is visible when reading through the series. She has great friends who will stick by her through anything and I think that makes her a pretty good character to want to be.

The only thing I like about coffee is the smell! But I'm glad you like it!

I love that you picked a slogan that also conveniently matches your blog theme. I'm a big fan of matching haha.

Happy FF from a new follower. Nice choice. I love coffee, but unfortunately I drank way too much of it once and now it makes me sick. Oh well, I can still drink tea.

Andra said...

Not going to lie, In college, my roommate knew that if she didn't want to hear me swearing like a sailor when she got up for her 8 am, she had to make me Coffee and then wave it under my nose when I started my stream of foul language ahaha

Sonny said...

Cute. I used to be like that without coffee. I had to kick the stuff!

Hopping through. At first I thought that lion was Simba ;-).
The coffee t-shirt is very appropriate given your blog name.

Alexis @ Reflections of a Bookaholic said...

I'm definitely more alert with coffee but I don't drink it often because I already have enough sleep problems as it is.

Darcus said...

Oh gosh, I love coffee. Now you've got me wanting a cup! And my husband and I are currently staying with people that do not even own a coffee pot!

New follower. Love your blog. :)


AngelicNytmare said...

I don't drink coffee much (unless it's the starbucks vanilla you can get at a store) The peole at work say I should because it would wake me up. LOL. I'm always sleepy when I go to work.

It seems we all want to be tougher characters. I went with Buttercup from The Princess Bride for something different ;)

I have never been a coffee drinker. It's always been tea for me. But, like you, I don't always function well until I have some form of caffeine. Mine's just mt dew.


Anonymous said...

hee-hee-hee. You totally remind me of my roomate. Except he is one of those people that drinks coffee morning, noon, and night. I have to get that shirt for him. It's too funny.

Thanks for the follow! Following you back :)

LOL! Great shirt! I'm not a coffee drinker myself, but I know people that can totally not function without their coffee. :)

The Fiction Fairy said...

I can relate, I think I keep starbucks in business! I always tell people... don't judge me before I have my coffee!*NEW FOLLOWER*

Grace Fonseca said...

Love the shirt. I feel the same way sometimes. Old follower saying hello.

Rubita said...

I love Kate Daniels, and I love Curran, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want to actually be her. She's got things pretty tough, what with her dad wanting to kill her and being seriously injured in nearly every book. Not to mention all the dying that happens around her, and the harm that comes to those that know her.

aparajita said...

Nice one....that slogan definitely works

Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.

ajudan pk said...

I like the post format as you create user engagement in the complete article. It seems round up of all published posts. Thanks for gauging the informative posts.
