If I order an espresso, bring along a paint scraper, to peel me off the 
ceiling. I had a large Americano at a coffee joint in Chico, near the 
university, a few months ago, at lunchtime, and I was up until early the 
following morning. I still enjoy my morning chai though.

 Caffeine is my current drug of choice. Without it kapha loves to go high and I 
feel like sleeping all day.  Unfortunately my espresso machine broke and it is 
a bear to fix if I can at all.  The company seems to think that I should just 
buy a new one.  What a "throwaway" society we are. And it was not one of my 
"Starbucks" days. :-D 

 Good for you, I would rather fix than throw away even if it costs more. It is 
my way of protesting. And also, that you have a certain amount of times per 
week that you go to Starbucks. It is very expensive - plus, I like to frequent 
my local independent rather than Starbucks.

   Aldous Huxley quote (1931):
 "So far as I can see, the only possible new pleasure would be one derived from 
the invention of a new drug — of a more efficient and less harmful substitute 
for alcohol and cocaine. If I were a millionaire, I should endow a band of 
research workers to look for the ideal intoxicant. If we could sniff or swallow 
something that would, for five or six hours each day, abolish our solitude as 
individuals, atone us with our fellows in a glowing exaltation of affection and 
make life in all its aspects seem not only worth living, but divinely beautiful 
and significant, and if this heavenly, world-transfiguring drug were of such a 
kind that we could wake up next morning with a clear head and an undamaged 
constitution — then, it seems to me, all our problems (and not merely the one 
small problem of discovering a novel pleasure) would be wholly solved and earth 
would become paradise."
 Sounds great - but I suspect that humans are so constituted that changing our 
brains with chemicals is always going to have unwanted side-effects.

 Re "Cocaine DEFINITELY sucks": 
 Amen to that. Like you I only tried it a few times and the after-effects were 
a warning I heeded. Ditto speed.
 God knows what I'd have felt like after a methamphetamine binge (the drug of 
choice today) - pretty sure I'd be suicidal.
