Yeah, if I eat too early it makes me feel sick.

I don't actually feel sick; I just...can't eat. I don't have an appetite yet.

Yeah. Now, I really should eat breakfast; I feel the difference all day. But it had better be something like granola bars and juice, or if I somehow have time to sit down cereal, that doesn't require thinking, any form of effort, or above all, actually choosing what to eat. It has to be by default.

I don't mind say eggs or pancakes or French toast something like that in the morning...but I'm certainly not making it. If I have to get my own breakfast, then I'll stick to cereal, thank you very much.

Least favorite is watching the news....I hate hearing about the war and loss of life. The best is sipping caffine via Zen green tea.

Urgh, hate waking up. Brain cells no function before 8am. But oddly enough, once I'm up, my favorite part is the drive to work. I reserve the news for while I'm getting dressed so it won't stress me out while I'm on the road, and then I just cruise. I have a pretty long commute (50+ miles) so I got a satellite radio, and I've got an hour+ of solid music and comedy to get me into a good mood before the grind starts.

I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your browser history when you die.

For breakfast I like to have some gagh!
Ok it isn't really gagh but it looks like it. It's a Japanese squid salad. :P

^^ that is very gagh'ish...!! :D

i hate waking up when it's not my choice (i.e. when i HAVE to wake up for a purpose such as getting ready for work). i love waking up when i'm feeling good and i have something to look forward to that day. unfortunately i'm in pain almost every single morning (lupus) so most of the time getting up is the hardest part of my day!

I was tempted to say going to work as least favourite but since I've never had a real job that isn't really fair so I said watching sports because I don't like sports. I probably should have voted other and said combing my hair cause I hate doing that.

Favourite: Eating breakfast. I may have no appetite in the morning but food is still good once I'm awake enough to eat it.

I have to eat in the morning or I will be starving until lunch time, the only thing is I hate making my own food, takes to much energy
Do you like my fish?

that's because you've programmed your body. you could deprogram it but that would be uncomfortable and unneccessary. :upsidedown:

the only thing is I hate making my own food, takes to much energy



I'm totally with you there! which is why i almost always make meals that take 10 minutes or less of prep time. breakfasts for me are usually a cup of fruit, or an occasional bagel, or a jamba juice drink (rarely, a starbucks mocha frapaccino - yum!)

I wake up, pry one eye open and realize I am still alive.
I then curse this fact and resign myself to the inevitable.
I pry the other eye open and realize I have an entirely too close view of the dog's butt
I roll over, beat on the alarm clock and attempt 5 more minutes of sleep, which always fails because the dog starts slurping my face like a 3 year old with an ice cream cone.
Thusly impelled, I stagger into the shower and attempt consciousness, stagger out and stare at my visage in the mirror. I then make the 2,535th comment about looking like one of the cast of extras from Gorillas in the Mist, scrub my fangs, attire myself, and stagger down the stairs for my bowl of cheerios and my massive intake of morning medications.

Agreed. I usually just have toast or a tahini sandwich cause I'm too damn lazy for anything else.

laughter is what I was shooting for :D

besides, it is better than the wakeups I was having a year ago when I would wake to a panic attack because I thought I was going blind B)

I need to lay in bed for about an hour before I get up so I watch the news or maybe TOS on TV land. I hate going to work but fortunately its only 3 days of the week, the other days I have stay at home jobs.
