One would think that the heart is the busiest muscle(s) in the body, however one would be thinking incorrectly.  The eye muscles are the most active with over 100,000 shifts & shuffles in a typical day.
I must now flex my eyes and get back to my drawing.

I likes my coffee.
I likes my coffee dark, full bodied and black.
I draw the line, however, at Kopi Luwak.
...and it ain't the $600 a pound price tag either!

In mid-1600s England one could attend a Penny University for the one cent price of admission.  This penny would grant you access to all manner of news, a good fire, meeting opportunities with friends for business, debate or pleasure, perhaps a game of chess and most importantly a dish or two of coffee.

Asking people to grant you small favors eventually leads them to believe that they are fond of you, because they know they only do things for people they like.
If you push this strategy too far, it will have the opposite effect.
--so beware, be very ware.
btw, could you comment on today's blog post for me?

A Turkish husband had, as one of his obligations, to continually provide his wife with a full supply of coffee throughout the duration of the marriage.  
Failing to do so was, rather ironically, Grounds for divorce.

A face blinks about a dozen times a minute.
This is fairly consistent.
However, Josephine Baker blinked slightly more than average due to her exotic dancing and risqué costumes.

Coffee cake is the American crumpet.
...but usually a bit on the sweet side to my liking, as I prefer less sugar.  While we're at it I prefer pie far more than cake. 
No one has ever made me a coffee pie.
I shall wait.

Coffee Mugs™

Eyes are round and not square like their related orbits (eye-sockets in the skull) because if eyes were square the stress of winking, blinking and nodding would be focused on the corners and might eventually crack the skin. With round eyes the stress is evenly distributed around the eyeball, diminishing the likelihood of these unsightly cracks.  
This gives one's face a much longer shelf life and allows for all manner of grimacing.
Enjoy life --pout more often.
