    I subbed out pop with tea and I found it helped really well with my health and my wakefullness. Still though there are those days when I need more than a cup of tea to get me going so I go for a monster or something. I try to keep myself to 2 or 3 energy drinks a week max, but that's still probably too many.

    I was up to a four pack of Monster a day. Not healthy at all!

    I like tea so maybe I'll just ice it, we've got good weather for that.

    I just drink coffee. One or two cups usually do the trick. I try to drink only one, though, because I don't want to develop tolerance to caffeine.

    sucks you guys need caffiene to function - have you tried the 5 hr energy shot? Thats supposed to be less unhealthy than energy drinks. Tea is also a better substitution like Joey mentioned -

    I try to avoid caffiene if I can - It gives me a headache and hurts my stomach - I like coffee but maybe drink it once a month if at all.. I don't like having to rely on anything to stay awake.

    Good luck with finding better ways to stay awake :)

    Re the caffiene discussion - you can call me a caffiene addict since I was a teenager... no doubt this has contributed to my primarily manic personality (manic as in higher than average elevated mood & excitability :? :P ). Not HUGE quantities - but steady - anywhere from 2-3 or more servings a day - favorites being coffee, Coke, and the blue Monster drinks. Only gave it up when I was pregnant both times and some months before (I take that back - I had about half a cup of coffee a day because my midwife thought that amount was fine). My sister, my mom, my husband and I - huge coffee drinkers - love it!!

    Rejoice(s) for the day....
    * Read the other day that Pain of Salvation plans to come back to the US soon.... yay!
    * Scored tickets today for my sister, brother-in-law, my husband and I to see Robert Plant at Taste of Chicago on July 12th. Lol - the last time I saw Plant was with my sister & brother-in-law in August 1983. Do I really want to see 64 year old Plant do Black Dog?? (a favorite when I was in junior high because it was so "naughty" :roll: :lol: ) Oh, why not I say! Also scored tickets for the girls & I to see Fun at Taste on July 10. Prolly no one here cares about such things - but Fun won the 2013 Grammy Award for Best New Artist and the Song of the Year for "We are Young." I personally am not a fan of this band, but the girls are - so it shall be fun to see Fun!! :roll:
    * seeing Book of Mormon tonight!!

    You definitely do! I saw Robert Plant in Ottawa 2005 and it was a marvelous show :D


    Good to hear! Yes, we're looking forward to it. I mentioned Black Dog because apparently he's doing it on this tour - as I said, it has been nearly 30 years since I've seen him (haha - we were both a lot younger then!)...he was mainly doing his post-Zep Honeydrippers stuff then (which was great btw).

    And need to mention - that the musical The Book of Mormon is really great - it is $$$ - but Chicago prices are apparently considerably cheaper than NY - we paid $80 for good first balcony seats - well worth it! They extended it here until September - I may actually try to go again.

    YAY work was awesome today - got to sit outside at a park with my client while we both painted and chatted about her issues. Also finished up my season of bowling, and my team did awesome tonight, so I think we are going to end the season in 4th place rather than 6th that we were in before tonight!!! Not too bad - Also - added a new member to our family, a baby bearded dragon : ) \m/

    Just got an offer for a bigger flat near my current one. The rent is only 100 euros a month more, but the flat is almost twice the size.
    It's about 400 meters from my current place, so I'd have to walk 1,5 km to work, which wouldn't be too bad. :)

    Wow!! What a great week this has been - saw two amazing women the last few nights - so inspiring!!! Last night my family and I saw the one-women show called The Pianist of Willesden Lane - simply beautiful! And the night before I saw the author Anchee Min speak about her new memoir The Cooked Seed - another highly inspiring & beautiful woman.

    The Pianist of Willesden Lane
    Royal George Theatre
    1641 N. Halsted Chicago

    Set in Vienna in 1938 and London during the Blitzkrieg, The Pianist of Willesden Lane tells the true story of noted pianist and author Mona Golabek's mother, Lisa Jura. As a young Jewish pianist, Lisa dreams of a concert debut at the storied Musikverein concert hall. When Lisa is swept up in the Kindertransport to London in an attempt to protect her from the Nazi regime, everything about her life is upended -- except her love of music. Golabek performs some of the world's most beloved piano music in this poignant tribute to her mother's experience in wartime Europe. Adapted and directed by local favorite Hershey Felder, The Pianist of Willesden Lane is a riveting tale of hope that is a powerful testament to how music can help us survive through the darkest of times.
    http://www.theatreinchicago.com/the-pia ... lane/6291/

    http://www.ancheemin.com/
    In 1994, Anchee Min made her literary debut with Red Azalea, her memoir of growing up in China during the violent trauma of the Cultural Revolution. The story left off as she fled her homeland, but a whole new life was just beginning. Nearly twenty years later, Anchee has written the next chapter.

    From the shocking deprivations of Communism, Anchee is transported to America, with its bounty she still can’t access—with no English, no money, and no clear path. Anchee teaches herself the language by watching Sesame Street, keeps herself afloat working five jobs at once, and sleeps in unheated rooms in desolate neighborhoods. Lonely, struggling financially, and fearful of her visa expiring, she marries badly and then divorces, taking on the challenge of raising her daughter, Lauryann, as a single mother. But it is her dream for Lauryann’s future that will give her the courage and strength to endure. The story of Anchee’s eventual success—as a mother, a wife, a writer, and a woman—is an immigrant story that illuminates so many things we take for granted. And it is a universal story, about moving forward until you find a path – or find you’ve been blazing one all along.

    Cool. I've always wondered what happens when people get off these juice diets and if you get proper nutrition from just the juice.

    the juice is all vitamins and micronutrients, which makes it easier for your body to absorb
