Hmm, today has been tedious but busy. Eating less, so thinking about food more - it annoys me the way I now obsess about what dinner will be if I don't snack or skip lunch. From when I was 13 to when I was 22 I often didn't eat lunch - and if I did have any food it'd be something silly like a portion of fries from Burger King. I rarely have more than two meals a day at weekends or on holidays. So how come I know about it if I don't eat lunch at work - I did take a break, went and sat and drank a bottle of water while pretending I was lunching so that I was 'allowed' the break. (Which is another thing that bugs me - most places I've worked (in summer jobs and stuff) if I missed lunch I could leave an hour early. Somehow I don't see Gill finding that a good reason - if I miss lunch then surely it means I work an extra hour in the day.)


I'm having garlic bread and peperoni pizza for dinner in case you wonder what it was that I was obsessing about ;)

And that's about the only interesting thing I can think of. Tomorrow will be a busy day at work, so I'll likely be zombied tomorrow night.

I don't know about you but I would say the length and demands of my day have changed significantly since I was aged 13 - 21 (i.e. at school/college). So it's not surprising that your food requirements should change too. One benefit of the current project is that there is a canteen here so I can get a cooked meal for lunch :-)

Not entirely - two of those years I was working full time, and the last was with a longer commute than my current one, in an almost identical job (OK I was a research assistant not a post-doc, but it's the same work). And a more active day coz the last bit of the commute was a half hour walk.

When I was at Shell in my year out I had a cooked lunch. Coz lunch was free in the canteen :)

I'm the same (or worse); sometimes I don't eat at all on weekends, but miss lunch on a weekday and I really notice it, even if I've had a big breakfast.
