“There’s too much blood in my caffeine system”

"There’s too much blood in my caffeine system” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as posters, T-shirts and coffee mugs. The saying has been cited in print since at least 1994.

I now live in New York, and do what I can to make sure I don’t have too much blood in my caffeine system. People complain that everywhere you travel in the world you find Starbucks. I find this delightful. It’s my anchor to reality.
