Poll: What's your morning beverage of choice?
I almost picked soda because some mornings I have that, but not like the old days when I had to have a Dew every morning. More often, right now, water is my morning drink.
I don't like water much. But, it's better for me.

I say water, 'cause that's what I drink most often lately, as well. largely due to the fact that I haven't had time enough lately to make tea in the morning.
Hey, I drink between 4-7 litres of H20 later in the day - ice-cold and mountain-spring-fresh, it's one of my favs... But, don't make me have to drink it first thing in the morning! It only has two of the ten H and on of the two 0 needed to generate the chemical I require (C8H10N4O2!!!)
OKAY, yah...like iwanna say, well, er, ah *YAY* like, to , you-know, to what...to my good, ah, friend, you ah you know uh, BAdam, er, Adam who like who wanted to like, no er, who like DID, beat ah, yano, beat ah...

*DANCES* at knowledge of this song.....*DANCES FREAKING DANCES*
During the day, I drink water and lots of it (easily 3-4 liters a day), but since this is the morning beverage, I have to go with orange juice. I just crave a glass (or mug) of orange juice in the morning. Its tangy sweetness gets me up and ready to go on most days. Though I used to be an avid morning caffeine drinker, these days I only drink coffee or tea in the morning when I really need the caffeine boost, usually if I had only a couple of hours of sleep or am getting up earlier than usual.
Me want On'gewssssss!!

man, i drink milk, or nothing. cause i drink like a litre of water at night, so milk or nuttin' in the mornings. or, i have a milkshake or a smoothie, whatever. milk rocks.
Count me in... as long as someone else is making the smoothie and they leave enough milk to steam for my cup'a Joe!
...really, my half dozen 24 oz. cups'a Joe!

...of coffee sleep and work, i am not boring, i just stick to what i know!
Zach · 17 years, 7 months ago
Yup. Water or Koolaid. That's me. Usually water, though, cause Koolaid doesn't quench that angry morning thirst.

but the 1st thing i do when i get to work is get a Dew. it keeps me grounded so i don't snap a customer's head off. all work & no caffeine make Snow the über-bitch.
the funny thing is that i usually don't have caffeine over the weekends.
Starfox · 17 years, 7 months ago
So are you an uber-bitch on the weekends then?
Or is it simply the combination of work and no caffeine?
I only drink caffeine on the week days too in the morning at work (diet vanilla coke), but usually that's because I haven't had enough sleep to function properly. Not a problem on the weekend.
So my dependence on caffeine is directly related to my level of sleep satisfaction the night before. And speaking of sleep I have a bed with a beautiful woman calling me to sweet la-la land now.
Coffee in the mornign is one of the most beautiful things in the world.
It is closely followed by mid-morning coffee, afternoon coffee and after-dinner coffee.
However, the last few days I've been drinking water like mad. *shrug* including hot water, with nothing else in it... which is very weird for me. But I'm guessing that will pass and then it will be my coffee and me again.
.oO My coffee and me...we're the best friends there could beeee Oo.
For some reason "my coffee and me" got that stupid My Buddy toy commercial stuck in my head. :)

.oO Black coffee's not enough for me, I need a better friend... Oo.
Pacho · 17 years, 7 months ago
iced tea all the way for me. it's like coffee, without the edge. it's like pop, without the fizz. it's like water, with extra caffeine
It's a girl! · 17 years, 7 months ago
Word. Especially if it's sweet tea you brewed the night before.
mmmm...sweet tea without lemon. The *makes me happy* soft drink.
Rhi: so confused · 17 years, 7 months ago
A strong cup of tea (usually Lipton) with two sugars and a splash of milk. Mmmm. I get very irritated at work when someone interrupts my morning tea. Frequent thought: If my tea is cold by the time we're done, you are so dead.
beth-pseudocanuck! · 17 years, 7 months ago
no chai drinkers here?
a good soy chai--iced or hot, depending on the weather--is the only way to go.
mmmm....Chai. It's my café drink of choice but some brands are a bit too sweet for my taste. Still, very nummy.
You should come down and visit us, we know a great spot for chai. :)
I am looking for a place to purchase a quality mixture to make at home... any help out there??? ...Don't make me beg.... 8^)
A body good it does.
I drink about 2 gallons a week. It's the best, simple.
Annika · 17 years, 7 months ago
Umm... Remember.. that one time, when you were sick last? That was from milk.
Don't even bother starting this, John.
She's going to spout unsubstantiated PETA BS at you.
It's a girl! · 17 years, 7 months ago
It's funny-- I used to quite like milk but for the longest time now, the mere thought of drinking a glass of it is enough to make me want to hurl. And it's not an anti-dairy thing either, more of a sudden aversion to dairy you drink.
I've had sudden changes like that. For years I was a cola drinker. It was my drug. But literally overnight it became sickening to me. My taste buds received it a completely different way and I no longer liked it AT ALL.
Arbie · 17 years, 7 months ago
My taste buds used to flip-flop on me like that too when I was a kid. Mostly with veggies (I remember hating peas for awhile) and sandwich stuffs (peanut butter went on/off several times as I recall). But never milk. I have never developed lactose intolerance and milk will be #1 until I do. This is not to say that I don't have a need for coffee but that is generally after the milk and some food, or else coffee tends to upset my stomach.

That sounds like something from "The Edible Woman" by Margaret Atwood.
I had to get rid of that book because it was ruining my eating habits. :\
Soy milk is positively disgusting. In a pinch I can use rice milk for cereal, but not as a beverage.
Whole milk from a cow or goat for me.
hmm. see I like cow and goat milk (cream in my coffee, 1 or 2 % on cereal or in tea) a lot.
However, I REALLY enjoy soy based beverages. mmmm.
vanilla so nice and chocolate so good. mmmmm.mmm.
but I dont' think of them as a milk subsititute, if I were to take a swig of soy beverage expecting milk--I would NOT be happy.
They are an alternate beverage choice which I really enjoy.

Actually, I suppose Red Bull fits into that "pop" catagory, although I don't like pop, especially Britney Spears. nyah nyah.
Rachel Beck · 17 years, 7 months ago
I have a lovely decaf Sencha and a slightly less lovely decaf Ceylon tea. Also rooibus (which I thought tasted like tree until I tried it with some cinnamon).
Caffeine, alas, makes me jumpy. My favorite tea, though, is still Assam, a fruity black tea. Add a little lemon. Zing! Mmm, good.
