No gain from caffeine?

I've been sleep deprived for the past week almost. What with the night train (in which they didn't turn off the lights), the short nights, the long drives, the long hikes and a very late return immediately followed by the start of the week, I can safely say I am tumbling towards exhaustion at an unprecedented rate. And how have I tried to combat the overpowering drowsiness through the day - yes, that cup of coffee.. or in my case, those cups of coffees. The worst part? They don't work. Sure when the warm drink cruises down your parched throat, it seems totally worth it. And at that instant you are sure that the drink will keep you awake. Not for me. I've had one tea and 2 coffees since morning and my eyes are dragging shut till now. The only thing that's keeping awake? Blogging. So, here's the second post of the day! Any tips on how to keep awake will be deeply appreciated. Suggestions may not include youtube/chatting/orkutting/FB or any other vetti mantra.

splashing my face with cold water does it for me at least for an hour.., but again i don't wear makeup most of the time and you are in Paris :)

Mysticmelodiez -> Idhadhan sandhula sindhu padardhu nu solluva.. Lol. No makeup for me either... But water on my face lasts as well as coffee in my system. :P

Just imagine that there is a snake sitting on the tree outside that window or an distant dino rumbling on.. that should wake you up, but you need good imagination.

Bala -> En imaginationku endha korachalum illai. But what's the use of imagining something outside... it's not going to make me wanna work in any case. Lol :D

Deepak -> Hahahahaha... I don't have that problem because the guy who shares my office is seldom at his desk. Lol. Thanks for the laughs though.

adi paavi, cold water kooda work pannada !!! seri pinna pesama veetuku poi oru podi thookam potutu va, lol. As they say the easiest way to resist a temptation is through it hehehee

Jaya said...

Mysticmelodiez -> Elaam oorina kallu maadhri.. veetuku pogarthukulla muzhippu vandhudum. So no use. any how, I agree that to resist the temptation is through it.. adhaan oru "power nap" pota seri vandhirukum. Unfortunately, apo apo enoda 'aasiriyar' vandhu paathutu povar. Worshtu!
