View Full Version : Hmm...Tasty

09-25-2001, 03:14 PM
I am sitting here in front of my pc digging into my dinner (A nice helping of Batchelor's Savory Rice and Tesco's Chicken pieces - I eat the same meal at least 5 days per week - Easy to cook).

Just wondering.....How many of you are lazy like me and eat their meals in front of the Computer??

It just seems that the last year I have changed many of my living habits and most of them now centre around this damn PC.

::Waves fork around::

I do! I can't leave the computer to go and eat. There's far too much interesting stuff to do with a computer.

::digs back into savoury rice::

Before i got married I used to eat split pea w/ham soup
out of the can. I'd garnish it with a 1/4 lb. of butter and go to
town. mmm mmm good. Tuna fish and cucumbers are pretty
good too. What else. Oh, yeah--pork 'n beans, sloshed up
with plenty of buttered bread.

I weighed in at 169 lbs. before that fateful new years morning
25 years ago when I met my wife-to-be. I'm 200 lbs now, and
it's that low only because I work outside during the warm
months. If it wasn't for my lawn service and the exercise it
provides, I'd easily be at 225 or more. My wife, she can cook,
in addition to her other skills. :)

I just finihsed some ribs, strawberries, and grapes (eaten in front of the computer) as soon as I read this. I was laughing so hard

well odd ball again i specifically try not to eat in front of my computer because it always wants and most of the time gets a share...

I hate you guys, the only meal I can eat well at the computer is lunch, and I rearly eat that at home.

I hate to admit it but I do eat all my meals in front of my computer. Pasta mostly. I don't do any programming while eating, I usually play Diablo2 :)

I sometimes will have a beer or quick snack in front of the computer, but generally I like to take a break from it and eat at the table or in the lounge.

I hate to admit this on a public forum board but when I program for long periods I can go through a litre of rum every 15 hours of programming.
Beleive it or not I actually mellow out when I am drinking, so I don't lose my temper when I get an annoying error.

Entering the den of evil and expecting to hold out?
you'll be lucky if drinking is all you do.

You guys mean there are other places to eat besides in front of the computer? WOW :cool:

Almost all of my meals at home are in front of a computer:

Breakfast, some toasted wafles in front of my notebook
checking if I got any EMails at night.

Lunch: Going out somewhere, or stay at work and get a pizza
in front of the comp. But more likely it's McDonalds, Burger King,
China Queen or some other fastfood.

Dinner: Pasta, Pizza, something else to make in a microwave
or order in front of my comp, playing games or chatting.

Only weekends are different sometimes. But not often :p

I would starve to death if I didn't have a computer to eat in front of...

So your life would be imitating your art (in reference to your avatar)?

09-26-2001, 06:53 AM
Yes. No. I don't know - what are you talking about?

09-26-2001, 06:58 AM
Your avatar has that classic "starving artist look", so if you had no computer, then you would resemble a true "starving artist".

If only, my friend... If only...

Personally, I don't eat in front of the computer.. I'm afraid of spilling something and frying my keyboard or something.. I do drink while playing games/writing papers/writing code tho.. it just happens.

09-26-2001, 07:09 AM
There's hope yet!

I'm not too worried about my keyboard because mine never last more than 6 months anyway. When I am sober and receive the same programming error for an hour then I slam the keyboard.
It helps when the nearest computer shop is only 100 metres from my place and that keyboards only cost $10.
Maybe I should learn to control my temper or maybe I should just STAY DRUNK :)
