for a week now..
I've been living more or less a caffeine free existence..
as a possible experiment, but more so to maintain caffeine / beer flipfloppin' equilibrium..
y'see.. usually, I spend all week zappin' me noggin' with the high-octane buzz factor with my choice stimulants being (a) strong coffee (b) Lift Plus energy drink (c) Coke (d) Viking (guarana) chocolate bars..
thus helpin' to facilitate my work as a random creative computer crunchin' twit..
processing graphic design, gruntin' thru desktop publishing, or.. as I am currently.. tweakin' up new music..
keeps me brain on it's toes.. keeps it running at 110% crazed / obssessive efficiency..
after a week of this tho'.. it starts to unhinge somewhat..
so.. on the weekend, I kill my brain with beer to return it to a 0 energy state, and otherwise find hilarious / idiotic inspiration in my intoxicated state to inspire next week's creative exploits.. and thus, equilibrium..
but, for the last few weekends I've had little or no beer, due partly to a pre-emptive winter hibernation in the Adelaide music scene that hits early in the month of May.. and me being a cheap bastard with money juggling issues..
so.. each week, my brain wuz receiving high doses of caffiene.. but no de-fuse..
and it wuz making me crazier and crazier.. (sometimes with entertaining results!)
so.. in effort to balance this.. I decided to take one week off the brain rollercoaster.. with NO caffeine..
y'know wot I discovered?
with no caffeine and very little beer.. I'm as BORED AS FUCK..
(and perhaps also BORING AS FUCK.. to anyone who's been reading this crap for the past week)
now, here I wuz thinkin' the world wuz just being boring, due to it's own inate early May boring'ness..
and perhaps, this is one contributing factor.. the slow onset of winter can really be fucken dull..
but.. the minute I had a coffee today..
the world came back in hi-definition, hi-contrast, dolby surround full funk INSANITY..
every detail suddenly became more intriguing again..
and now, I'm not bored..
which, thus concludes my experiment..
boredom is maybe 10% environmental, but more likely 90% a symptom of a dim witted non altered brainspace..
which makes me wonder..
those people who live on a non-alcoholic / decaf lifestyle.. how BORED are you?
