I am compelled to spend so much time in front of my computer that I forsake quite a few things.

I've already discussed hygiene.

Over the past few days, I've been so flat out, that I've been disinclined to eat.

The reason?

I ran out of canned food.

It's easy to eat food out of a can.~30 seconds are required to travel to, and get the food from, the cupboard.~10 seconds are required to remove the lid from the can, and ~20 seconds are required to procure a thing.. you use.. to.. dig.. food. It takes ~60 seconds to eat a can of baked beans.

I have plenty of frozen food, but given that it requires a *massive* amount of time to prepare (i.e. I have to put it in the microwave, wait for it to cool a little, etc.) like, say 5 to 10 minutes, I've just been drinking cola (Low Joule Cola, that contains ~0 energy) to keep my hunger at bay for as long as possible. By the way, that's cola at room temperature, from a box of 8x2L bottles sitting on the floor immediately beside me.

Is that wrong? To avoid eating because *frozen food* is too difficult to prepare..? :P
