Wow! I think I found my new favorite beer ever! I cannot say a single bad thing about this beer!
I woke up. I was slightly unnerved but couldn’t figure out why. I made coffee. While I was waiting for the coffee to brew, the realization of why I was slightly unnerved hit me: My subconscious had just lost its virginity to an anthropomorphic mink. I blame the googles I had to do yesterday to research this article. Needless to say, I think I’m over that particular subject for a LONG time. Now off to read Freefall 😛 J/K. I’m off to drink coffee, read the dailies (not including Freefall since I’m not up to today’s yet), and then take a bunch of old computer junk downstairs. Now will someone pass me the Brain Bleach, please?
It’s been a long while since I’ve had coffee with anything besides coffee in it. Lately, I’ve been drinking American-style coffee and espresso on occasion (one French Press cup in the past 2 weeks). But today for whatever reason I wanted a cappuccino. And I made one. And it’s damn good. Textbook perfect 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk, 1/3 dry macrofoam. The two layers sit nicely in my clear caffeine molecule mug and I can’t think of a better way to start a morning.
Well, some new studies done by Spanish and American researchers indicates that for women, at least, drinking coffee has a significant benefit regarding their risk of stroke. It seems that originally, this was set up primarily to examine the effect of coffee on the risk for diabetes, but the reduction of risk for stroke was more striking. The key finding was that
… healthy women who consumed two to three cups of caffeinated coffee a day had, on average, a 19 percent lower risk for any kind of stroke than did women who drank less than one cup a month. Drinking four or more cups a day lowered risk by 20 percent.
