some Deutsch questions/help

Hallo! it's been awhile since I've posted here; I've been recently trying to pick up on my German again and practice/teach myself (sadly I don't know many Germans around where I live, to practice :(

if anyone could help me with some questions, that would be great! I have quite a few actually but I'll ask a few at a time, so I don't overwhelm or take over the lj community with a gigantic post. =)

1. If i wanted to say 'i feel happy' would i say, 'Ich fuhle glucklich'? is this the right word? same with 'i feel tired', etc.? (ich fuhle mude)

2. Does 'weder' mean neither? so if i wanted to say 'i am neither good nor bad,' and 'i am neither happy nor sad' would this be correct:

**Ich bin weder gut noch schlecht.

**Ich fuhle weder glucklich noch traurig

3. I was ordering coffee the other day and was atrying to say this in my mind in German: and i wasn't sure about the order of the sentence, because of the verb always having to come second...except when things get added to sentences, as they always do, and then i get mixed up.
'I think that I need some cold coffee with ice please.'

** Ich denke, dass ich etwas Kaffee brauche. Mit Eis bitte.

How is the order with this?

Danke =)
