If We Were Having Coffee…


I wouldn’t be drinking coffee. I’d be thoroughly enjoying the aromas, but as I don’t like the taste I’d be drinking a hot chocolate with lots of whipped cream or a mango and passion fruit smoothie. Oh, and I’d be eating cake. Preferably cake filled with raspberry jam.

If we were having coffee, I would bore you with tales of my running endeavours. I have gone for a run several times in the last week, always in the morning before my neighbours surface, and each time I have improved my distance, my speed and the number of calories I have burned. I hate it, but I always feel really good once I’m done.


If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I watched Guardians Of The Galaxy the other day, and I thought it was pretty great. It isn’t in the same league as Avengers Assemble (one of my favourite all time films and the only film I have ever wanted to see again immediately after watching it at the cinema), but the characters were good, there was the right amount of tears, laughter and action and it was a nice way to spend the morning. I would also tell you that the actress who played ‘Nebula’ is the Scottish actress who played ‘Amy Pond’ in Doctor Who and that she shaved her beautiful long red hair off for the role.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you about my obsessions with Castle and White Collar, of which I am currently on Season 4 of both. I have developed a little crush on Nathan Fillion (despite hating his character in Season 7 of Buffy) and even though my friends have unwittingly provided me with spoilers I am thoroughly enjoying both programmes.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’m absolutely obsessed with this song at the minute…

If we were having coffee, I would show you my Facebook newsfeed at the minute, which is full to bursting with pictures of weddings, newborn babies and holidays in exotic places. I would show you this picture of Daisy that I uploaded just to balance it out a bit. Circle of Life, anyone?


If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I awoke the other morning and immediately checked my blog, as I do almost every morning. I get a little buzz from reading all the lovely comments that I receive overnight and it always gives me a great start to the day. However, the first comment that I read started with ‘Lol, you’re such a stupid b*tch...’ Apparently, a crazy Justin Bieber fan had stumbled across my anti-Bieber post from a few months ago and decided that I needed to be lectured about how the music industry actually works. I was so grateful for the information. I would tell you that the reason why everyone hates him is that he won’t give up, he won’t break down and he stays strong. Awesome. I had no idea. It must be quite a revelation to live in a world where there is an actual belief that this famous pop star is actually going to marry them someday. Bless. My Trash comments were busier than usual that morning.

And finally, If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’ve had far more entries than I anticipated for my Summer competition, and so I’ll announce the results in a few days!

I loved this idea, which I saw on the ever fabulous Nerd in the Brain‘s blog, who in turn saw it on the equally fabulous Part Time Monster‘s blog, who found it somewhere else. It’s one of the many reasons why I love the blogging community – they inspire me!

What about you? If we were having coffee, what would we talk about?

  1. I am having coffee. So, in some sense, WE are having coffee.
    WE are sharing the clear and calm after an unusual rain in this bereft desert place by the sea where I am now.
    We are sharing the joy after long runs or walks.
    We are sharing curiosity about these reviled so-called pop stars, wondering why their name carries no meaning.

  2. I would love to have a hot chocolate with you but mine would be white. I would agree with White Collar and Castle and add Perception. I would commiserate over Bieber and apologize for my countryman. We do have the occasional jerk. Too bad really, he once was a good guy. I would tell you about the cheetah births I witnessed at africam.com and the osprey live cam I watch in Maine. I would also thank you for the enjoyment you bring. Cheers!

  3. We would talk of ships and kings and ceiling wax, we would talk of love and life and possibilities, we would talk of the best nail color and how to keep my hair dark brown and we would hug each other and cry

  4. lol. It’s funny cause my wife and I are not coffee drinkers at all. I’ve tried different flavors and different temps. Not for me. But I do like the aroma of the coffee beans for some reason.

    And I totally get you on the running. We’ve been doing 5Ks and running is boring but like you said you do seem to feel better afterward. Keep going!

  5. Let’s see, I would tell you I am rest hung Red Dwarf for the millionth time this weekend. I would tell you my baby has learned to scream but in a cute giggly, excited shriek kind of way ( I am sure my opinion of it being cute may change)… And that your kitty is adorable πŸ™‚ have a better day a JB is a horrible representation of the music industry and teenagers/ 20 somethings

  6. If we were having coffee, I would tell you what you were missing with this wonderful aromatic brew.
    I would tell you that Buffy was like the best TV series ever and that I loved Nathan Fillion in Firefly and the move Serenity.
    I’d also be asking if the good comments you get on your blog out way the bad ones?

    • I adored Buffy – I only got into it after Season 7 had finished but I watched the whole thing in about 6 months! I haven’t seen Firefly but The Bloke has them on DVD and always tells me how great they are!

      For every bad comment I have received thousands of great ones, which always make my day, so they always outweigh the bad ones!

      • πŸ™‚ Thats good. Those bad comments can really get a person down, and that’s me saying it when I read them on other blogs. Fortunatly I have none yet, but I guess the day will come.

  8. Hmmmm…….We’d talk about how much I love coffeh. We’d talk about what a raging emotional idiot I am. We’d talk about my kids and the things they do I love and am annoyed by. We’d talk about anything and everything because I love the British accent and I could listen to you talk all day. I’d keep asking you stuff just so I could hear you talk. I hope that doesn’t sound creepy. If it does I totally take it back. Sigh…

    I’m just gonna drink some coffeh…

  10. It’s really cool that you found it on Nerd in the Brain who got it from Diana, and then you gave ME the idea of turning it into the linkup thingy. Just fabulous. That Beiber thing is insane.

  11. What is the competition I’ve been hearing about? Do share πŸ™‚
    By the way, thanks so much for letting me know about this “If we were having coffee” linkup. I had so much fun writing mine. Why don’t you come on over and have coffee with me?

  12. That was a great cup ‘o’ joe, and cake! The Bieber bashing was especially amusing, and I’m now headed to find the post you speak of. Look forward to another cup with you soon. πŸ™‚
