Illustrated Entry

June 29, 2008 at 5:36 am (Read-a-thon)

As you might have noticed, I’ve included a picture in almost all of my posts. Usually little things that were part of my read-a-thon day. So, your mini-challenge should you choose to accept it is to photograph something related to your read-a-thon experience and put it in a post w/ a caption. If you don’t have a digital camera, or it’s not working, just find something on the internet that approximates it. Or draw a cartoon in paint!

Well, I thought about this and couldn’t find anything more appropriate than this:


That just so happens to be a caffeine molecule (or, rather, a representation of one). Without the help of caffeine, I couldn’t have made it this far.

BTW, if you’re as much of a dork as I am, you can actually buy a shirt, a necklace, or a mug with this on it at Think Geek.

For somebody a bit more obsessed? You can see caffeine tattoos here, here, and here. And, of course, this is my preferred kind of caffeinated beverage (except that I prefer it out of a bottle – I can taste the can. Eww.)

    I don’t drink very much soda (I used to drink a TON of it), but to me there is nothing better than an iced cold cokeinacan. It HAS to be from the can.

    Great pic – very inspired!

    lol, a caffeine molecule…I love it!

    That is very appropriate – very clever! 😀

    And that necklace, that is too great! I may be geeky enough for that, but I think I’d probably stop short of having the caffeine molecule tatooed onto me. Methinks that would be just a tad over the top….

    Keep up the great reading!

    You’re doing so great! I’m so impressed with the people who’ve stayed up the WHOLE time! 😀

  10. Trish said,

    Holy tattoos! Those look mighty ouchy. I posted some challenge pictures–not really symbolic of anything I’ve been reading–just me. 🙂 Oh, and the cat of course.

    Oh, that last comment was from me at

    Yay, reader of the hour!

    I love those molecule necklaces! I think I first saw them on Etsy, somewhere.

    Caffeine is my friend, too; I have been known to months-long breaks from it, but I always (so far, anyway) return.

    I really love the cafeine molecule. Or however you spell it…

    very creative! i like my caffeine as Diet Coke with Lime. 🙂

    What a perfect picture! How are you this clever so many hours in? Not fair! lol

  19. Trish said,

    Just finished my 4th book! Wow this was fun. Hang i there, its almost over.

  20. Tammy said,

    Love it! There’s nothing better than an ice cold Diet Coke and a dark chocolate bar (since the coke offsets the calories in the bar, of course). Hang in there — we’re almost done!!
