I like my coffee like I like my men: not burning my tongue.
This sometimes leads me to put in unmanly things like milk so that I can drink it immediately before leaving.

Drink black coffee in a glass filled with ice cubes then.

Lots of people do that around here - quite manly.

I don't drink hot drinks at all. I put cold water in, or ice cubes if I have any, until it's cold enough. In tea as well.

That dilutes the coffee, though.

Speaking of tongue-burning, here's another contradictory thing.

1. I do not enjoy eating very spicy food. Anything over maybe 5k on the scoville scale. It's unpleasant and I keep trying to make the sensation go away by drinking lots of milk or ceasing to eat it.
2. I keep wanting to eat very spicy food. Whenever it's been a couple days I start getting cravings. I planted two Jalapeño plants this year and god help me there's still 50+ peppers to get through.

This is like some bizarre culinary masochism. I'm reminded of Jeff Burke's thusly disproven hypothesis that addiction is indistinguishable from liking something a lot.

Not a problem I've heard from people who drink it (who usually drink it quickly), so don't worry.

You don't like hot cocoa or chocolate or whatever you call it? Milk with honey when you're sick before going to bed?

Hot chocolate. And I said already, I don't drink hot drinks. Look there, I put emphasis on 'hot', which makes it mean "I don't drink drinks which have a very high temperature". Of course I love hot chocolate and milk and honey and honey and lemon and things.

How about making some coffee, freezing it into ice cubes, and then later putting the coffee ice in a cup of coffee to cool it down faster without diluting it?

I hate being around people, since a lot of them tend to annoy me and I like the solitude, yet I hate being lonely, and want to be around people whom I can talk to. My Asperger's just loves to annoy me.

I want to be more open about my feelings so I don't get some sort of ulcer from stress or whatever, but I hate everyone that I'm around all the time.

then what makes you think being open is at all a good idea? shouldn't you want mostly to not hate people, rather than want to Express Yourself

What if those around him are hateworthy.
Find a new around then! Or rediscover people. Sometimes happens, especially when you just have first impressions of them. People in isolation are not the same as people in groups.

I enjoy spicy food, but it aggravates my chronic GERD like nobody's business. So I spend a lot of time saying to myself, "I would love to eat that but I really don't want to be up slurping Pepto-Bismal until 2 a.m."

Maybe so, but what's contradictory about drinking them pleasantly warm instead of scaldingly hot?

You dislike hot drinks but you like hot chocolate - that's very contradictory xD

nobody likes scaldingly hot drinks because they're scaldingly hot and yet people still say they like, and ask for, "hot drinks". when people say "hot", therefore, they do not and cannot mean "scaldingly hot" but "pleasantly hot" -- that is "pleasantly warm".

you're not a special contradictory snowflake after all.

I actually like that my hot drinks be served cold. This gives me a choice as to the temperature I want to drink it at: if its served moderately warm, it will drop beloy moderately warm rather fast, whereas if its served too warm to be drunk, I can drink it all throughout the tolerable range, thus at my pace and leisure, instead of having the option of just right and too cold I have too hot, just right and too cold.

Part of me wants to see the Orioles defeat the Yankees now and part of me wants them to survive long enough that the Cardinals can face them in the World Series.

may it be said, that the subjunctive mood be known as best mood is what the LORD indented.

that's not a subjunctive, that's just a crystallized expression, a one-lexeme phrase that, at some level, operates outside grammar and on the level of lexicon instead
