o coffee bean

beans-in-the-bowl

i've felt a dramatic ode to the coffee bean coming on for a long time, and all the pieces came together this week to make it happen: a devotion so fervid that yesterday i stopped for a shot of espresso on my way to get coffee somewhere else. a remark from pixie about wanting to apply the stuff topically and pour milk over the beans. katy's choice of listless for the weekword. an urge to shout in the vocative case. o coffee bean! i'm not sure what i'd do without you.

a couple of weekend treats for you: a delightful interview at artists who blog with thereza rowe (the genius behind tiny red), the jealous curator (featuring the fabu aris moore), jenn's itty bitty journal pages (the trash can mishap is priceless), and krispiecandysurprises (rice krispies + marshmallows + butter + leftover halloween candy). you'll have to come to my house for those. they are going fast.

Oh wondrous coffee bean
Oh bean so rare
If I couldn't buy you
I'd tear out my hair!!

Lovely words and illustration. I agree with every word.

Kim Hambric said...

Yes, Yes, Yes! I can smell the coffee now!

I do love those little chocolate covered coffee beans. Wish I had a bowl right now.

Yes! From a cereal bowl eaten... ah, that ought to set my brain a-working.

Lori said...

This is so funny for me to read because it is 11:30 pm and about 2 hours ago I accidently drank a mug of coffee that I thought was decafe. I am *WIDE* awake. Oh coffee, how I wish it were 7 AM.

Nothing can make me swoon like a wonderful, magical cup of fresh brewed java. Ahhhh!
Peace & Love,

Though I have never developed a taste for coffee, I love how it smells when it is brewing... always reminds me of my folks.

hi aimee,
thanks so much for all the great links in this and in the last post. you always manage to brighten up my days!have a lovely sunday,anja

Bella Sinclair said...

o aimeee
nothing wakes me up faster
than a glance at your
colorful wisdom.

if i could roll you up in a ball
and shove you up my nose
for quicker access to my brain,
i would.
i've already tried that
with coffee beans.
i don't recommend it.

Lynn Fisher said...

I seriously love you Aimee...you're so funny!!!!

Oh tea of dark green
far better than beans
I'd find you by
almost any means!

Jill said...

I can smell the beans from here!!

Manon Doyle said...

pixie said...

YOU are a muse, Ms. Aimee!

your sister in caffeinitum,

pix!

lori vliegen said...

I do like "your.cat" (upper left corner), and VI's comment (which I'm not sure whether it comes from a Japanese porn-addict, a bot or an evil malicious virus but it's dead funny all the same.)

I wouldn't click on it whatever you do and, as I assume it will be deleted at some point (when you realise you've got virusy spam) I've copied it (just the characters, unformatted) to keep it for posterity. 'ere:

Oh good lord, please tell me you are making a print of that coffee loveliness!

aimee said...

if this were a giveaway post, you would have all won, even the chinese spammer. i haven't laughed this hard since someone flew into the house this weekend and shouted that there was kangaroo poop in our back yard. how very serendipitous it was that la ninja arrived just after the spam, because i knew she'd be all over it with a spicy analysis. so i'll leave it there. don't click on it folks. just enjoy.

thanks all for making my day as always!

and o peggy - yes! i put a print of it in the shop.

jane said...

thank you! i knew i could count on you for a dose of inspiration... however, the krispiecandysurprises... i´ll have to take your word for it;) besos! and happy thanksgiving dear aimee!

jess gonacha swift said...

you are amazing. i love it!! and i imagine your rice krispie treats are addictive and delicious and oh-so-bad-for-you...!

aimee said...

what the hell? the spam comment disappeared. the one time i didn't delete it, to let it stand for entertainment purposes, it vaporized on its own. now THAT scares me!

KB said...

If only I could still drink coffee ... darn kids! Haven't been able to stand the stuff since pregnancy number one and it got worse with number two. Sigh.

And... this is one of my favorites I think!

Aris said...

My love affair with coffee is relatively new, but it is hot and heavy(:
Whats up with the chinese spam I got a couple of really long comments on a very old post the other day. It was killing me I wanted to read them.

Megan Coyle said...

Coffee beans really are sunshine :)

another fantastic piece, especially because it features the greatness that is coffee :)

Nicky Linzey said...

I love your writing Aimee!

soulbrush said...

i cannot get the coffe mania!
it escapes me true
but i do love the smell
so go get your coffee all of you!

la ninja said...

oh god, was it one of those "will auto-destruct in 48 hours" spams, then? or do you have evening blog-elves (like the cobbler) that sort the blog out while you sleep?

either way, good plan it's been recorded for posterity! ha!

Segovia said...

Aimee, this is your best work yet.

L'Atelier said...

oh i love IT!
C O F F E E
the magical drink!!!
:D

BT said...

Well all these poems about coffee!! I think I started a trend! I have bought one for my daughter for Xmas - I don't think she reads this! I hope not anyway..... and I bought lots of other stuff too. Too much lovely stuff aimee!
