Okay, so I'm not even pretending that I've stuck close to keeping up with NaBlo. That first part of my title is kind of (really) a joke.
As I've been plugging away at work these last couple of weeks, trying not to think too much about an upcoming break in such long work weeks, I've had flashes of just wanting something that isn't so good for me. Something that isn't work all of the time and something that isn't me (attempting) to eat well. Something that isn't me trying to be good while surpressing thoughts of the fun, unhealthy things I could be doing instead.
Things like watching Lifetime holiday movies. I have no idea why I find the thought of this appealing, but the other day, in the middle of work, I suddenly wanted to watch really bad holiday movies (yes, for holidays I don't celebrate).
And just a few moments ago, as I toil through a pile of work, I suddenly wanted Pringles. I want to devour an entire can of plain Pringles. I can't remember the last time I even ate Pringles (mainly because I know I'll eat a whole can at once), but wow do I kind of want them something fierce.
I think I need to have a little chat with my brain about just how rude it is, interrupting my flow state to taunt me with alluring thoughts of junk tv and junk food.
One day, five weeks from now, though, you just might find me in front of a tv screen, a can of Pringles in hand, with only a fleeting thought of serious work flashing through my brain.
A person can dream, right?
(And back to work I go. Incoherent rambling break time is over for this evening.)
