The Four C's of the Apocalypse

Cheese, crackers, chocolate and cupcakes.

And not just any cupcakes--caramel pecan ones.

I think my ass has trebled in size.

But work must forge ahead so until I finish this chapter section (please god, let that be today!) I'm stuck to this chair, feeding my face with anything to keep me awake. It's been two days since I last ran and we've been having some really good running weather.

It feels like karma has taken a dump on my head.

Shit.

If cupcakes are wrong, I don't want to be right.

I'm working on the F's. I'm making fudge and calling it carboloading.

You academic types ...

Good luck with that chapter. Cheers!

Eat the cupcakes, skip the writing, and tell your thesis adviser, "Dost thou think because thou art virtuous, there shall be no more cakes and ale?"

I think those might be the four food groups required for dissertators.

Sigh, three months post-defense, I'm still trying to lose the dissertation baby weight...

I'm with you.
Last night I planned my meals for the week.I bought eight Lean Cuisine frozen dinners. That's as close as I'm going to get to eating healthy this week.
p.s. If you drink lots of coffee (tea, whisky) while doing this chapter, then you're guaranteed some exercise from running to the toilet.
Hey, times like this anything counts.

The coffee/tea/whisky idea sounds like an excellent addition to your current diet. If you also include Philips Milk of Magnesia, you're all set!

Hang in there. Hope you get to surface soon. Did you see who's back?

Just assign each of your readers a chapter or two until the diss is done. I'm sure we'd create something intelligent and cohesive, yes?

Oh, wait...Just remembered we're ignorant, illiterate savages, the lot of us. Guess you're on your own, sister.

HANG IN THERE!! It'll all be worth it. ;)

I stopped reading at "chocolate." Then again at "cupcake." I guess you could say, you had me at "chocolate," but I think that jokes been overused.

Caramel pecan cupcakes? Holy mother of God. I will order them from the UK. I must have them.

What, coffee doesn't make the list?

Re: your ass trebling in size. I doubt it. Please post a before and after photo, and I will offer a candid opinion. I'm sure everyone else will too. Then you'll feel much better.
