As several have noticed I have been in a little bit of a funk of late. I've been whining like a bitch (sorry, Rachel), eating like a pig, and being lazy like a hibernating bear. I've also had an urge to tear myself down in a public fashion. Apparently this made me sound like a Fall Out Boy fan page webmaster. I was getting close to writing and recording some crappy acoustic ballads and putting them up on MySpace.
At first I figured it came from being swamped with school stuff and just generally professional anxiety. I then started to suspect that it was somehow tied to a general lack of energy I've had of late, which I traced back to when I stopped eating oatmeal for breakfast and replaced it with various baked goods that I've made, all of which contain lots of sugar and butter... lots of glorious sugar and butter. (My blood sugar levels might argue the "glorious" part.) Well, no more: tomorrow it's back to oatmeal in the mornings, oatmeal in the nights, oatmeal while in transit, oatmeal while in flight. (?)
Now I'm starting to realize that it may have had more to do with being mildly sick for a week or so. It didn't really hit me until this morning, when I woke up and had a sore throat. And why wouldn't I be sick: I haven't been getting my oat protein, which is almost equivalent in quality to soy protein. Anyway, when I realized this I immediately felt a lot better, not to mention it's given me excuses to drink honey lemon and eat chicken noodle soup. On the downside, I have a sore throat.
Anyway, I no longer feel the need to write things which make me look like a lecherous cretin, but at the same time, I really feel the need to finish what I started, with at least more such entry to complete the trifecta. Unfortunately I can't think of anything suitably alarming right at the minute, as I'm blissed out on tomatoes, celery, peas, glorious chicken protein in broth form, and sweet, sweet salt. More to come!

P.S. (12:06AM, March 18/05): I just realized that I could have name-dropped New Found Glory in the first paragraph instead and that would have upped the "glory" counter to four.
P.P.S.: Now it's 5.
