Wouldn't precaffeinating work better, ye, maybe, I don't know.
You can't say "I don't know" anymore, Trump fucked up the use of it.
Ye, he did, the fkn trump, he'd use "I don't know" as code for "am I right?" as a call to the fkn trumpians.
Take my advice, don't listen to me.

Aye, precaffeinating would work, however. My plan was to join the call which was at 3am, and then when it was over go back to bed for another hour an a half which is what I did....Trump fucked up the use of so many words. I won't use the word "huge" anymore. When I have said "huge", I tend to say it in a mocking tone (More like Alec Baldwins Trump impression than the real Trump)

I like this word. Nothing exists before you have your coffee. Just emptiness, grumpiness, a super bright sun, and a headache.

"Procaffeinating is a bitch when you have to take your ugly pooping dog for a walk, early in the morning."

Did I use the word correctly?

Yes, you did, and I'm so happy you like the word...I feel the same about life before coffee. You and I have soooo much in common Mags, sigh :)

Your sentence did have a few slight, grammatical errors in it, but I fixed it for you my friend 8)

I was curious about this word, so I searched for it on Google (I thought it had to do with folk who work on farms, like..."Oh, I can barniculate, so let me explain to them how to properly store the hay in the barn")

It's such a common word that the forum came in as the number two listing in my search (2nd out of 3 results!!)

This is two for the price of one.  I had to look up "instars", as well.  I feel quite educated.

barnicles are cool. theyre really little shrimp that hang out together and wave their little body parts in the seawater.

who cant sympathize with that?
