I am a coffee addict by day, egg addict by early day… and peanut butter addict all day. Getting each of those vices in my system helps me function like a normal human Melanie, or else the Incredible Mulk makes an appearance.
It’s crazy how much power routines have over an individual (read: me). At the beginning of my time in Austin—the past six days-I was super stressed out, and almost always hungry (I had no peanut butter! Ahhh!!). I also had a headache for three days in a row that no amount of Advil or Tylenol could cure. This could be because I’m a super hero/mutant and I need super hero strength medication—or because I just didn’t feel comfortable anywhere.
Have you ever relied solely on hotel coffee? ‘Nuff said.
Thanks to finding an apartment, and still holding onto the rental car, today I can finally say I feel back to normal! I bought a jar of pb and a loaf of bread to keep me steady at 6:30am, and found a savior in the name of Austin Java that gives me the other few vices I need in life. With a side of awesomely well-done bacon that I can’t stop eating until it’s all gone. Although, who would leave any bacon over? If it’s you, start repenting for your sins.
I spent the whole morning at AJ, and stayed straight through to lunch. Here’s a look at my eats (a little faded from my camera phone). These meals definitely made up for last night’s Chinese food fail:
I kept wondering if the server hated me for the two and a half hours after breakfast where I didn’t order anything, but turns out it was totally cool. Thanks AJ server, I salute you for letting me live at your coffee joint. I also noticed two other people around me who were parked with their laptops for hours also, so I wasn’t a lone wifi soldier.
To thank AJ, I tweeted at them profusely, and left a very nice tip. I’ll be back tomorrow. Please let me in :).
