Notify the authorities

I got up and ate breakfast today. Seriously, I did. Just like a normal person who doesn't have thousands of papers to grade. How did I accomplish this?

1) Yesterday, during a twenty minute paper grading break, I went to the grocery store.

2) This morning, when I woke up at 6:30 (a bit early for me) I did not go back to sleep.

3) Instead I woke up and made coffee. Oh my God.

4) Then I ate plain non-fat yogurt, a tablespoon of wheat germ, and five almonds.

I think this is what they call being a normal human being who puts needs of self before needs of miscreants who can't be bothered to spell their own names correctly.

Of course, the fifteen minutes that I took to do something for myself this morning will probably result in a day chock full of sneering miscreants, but I do not regret my choice. I feel sort of human. I like it.

Normal post up tomorrow. Unless I choose to neglect you by continuing my selfish trend of eating breakfast. Who knows?

Would you come over and let me fix you a proper breakfast? That was just sad.

I agree with Woodrow. It may be better than nothing, but just slightly :-).

Maybe an actual bagel tomorrow? Or an egg?

I agree about the breakfast - though I usually just eat cereal - for breakfast and dinner actually (well, dinner consists of cereal and chips with excessive amounts of salsa, or sometimes cereal and broccoli). Lately anyway. My eating is pretty much pathetic and consists of cereal or whatever I can microwave and have it turn out kind of decent, though I have to admit, my standard isn't very high. I am probably poisoning myself with the plastic that all microwaveable food comes in.

I had sausage and eggs this morning with grilled onions and bell peppers mixed in. It was tasty. Like you, I woke up early and couldn't get back to sleep. I usually skip b'fast.

Wheat germ? Seriously?

Breakfast will always help you deal better with the miscreants. Trust me on this one.

I'm still trying to figure out how you can stop at five almonds.
