Feel the love...

Yesterday, I had two Pop Tarts (TM) for breakfast, and that was my food for the day, and the floorboard of my car at a quarter of one of them. I don't usually eat lunch, and I thought I'd be able to stop by the house for dinner, but I got distracted by offers of FTP space, and didn't leave until the last minute, when I ran to the church to work at the dreaded Front Desk. It was 7:00.

My mother, bless her perverse little soul, walks up to me and says, "Do you want me to get you some food from upstairs?"

I salivate, crawl forward whining, and otherwise make a pathetic display of hunger and tragedy. Okay, I said "Yeah, that'd be great."

She comes back downstairs with three slightly soggy crackers.

Most mammals feed their young. I guess that stops after age 18 :)

In the 21st century, journalists will write according to the Inverted Pyramid (TM) form, which states that the audience will continue to read until the first high brand recognition product is mentioned :)

Ack!
I have this problem where I can't let people be hungry. Like, my office is stocked like a bomb shelter with cereal, oatmeal, cream of wheat, many kinds of soup, canned corn and spinach, granola bars, peanut butter crackers, handi snacks (both the cracker and pretzel variety), mounds bars, M&Ms, nestle crunches, rice krispie treats, soda, english muffins, cream cheese, egg beaters, microwave popcorn, tuna, mayonaise...(you get the idea). I always offer people food when they come in. So I read a post like this and get frustrated, because there was nothing I could *do*.

Just send me virtual snacks :) It's my own damn fault, I'm too cheap to pick up lunch.

Re: HM
Hi! :) Nice to hear your "voice :)" No, the BibleBars are really addictive and really expensive for their size--I've backed off of them and don't want to get hooked again. For some reason, honey, barley and pomegranate juice is very more-ish.

Curiously enough, though, two of them and a couple of fish can feed a multitude.

Incidentally, Robin, I just sent Livejournal the deed to my firstborn child, so if you decide you'd like an account I should be able to furnish you with one in a week or three. Let me know!

I fear the bible bars are a little more old-testament than that. Back when the wrath of god involved raisins, sesame seeds and puffed grain.

Darn it, now I want a bible bar :(
