I woke up this morning with an overwhelming craving for oatmeal cookies. Not just any oatmeal cookies, but the warm, soft-but-crunchy-on-the-rim, size-of-bread-and-butter-plates oatmeal cookies I used to get before homeroom down in my high school cafeteria.

I have no idea where it came from. It was so strong, though, that I detoured and went to the grocery store across from work, looking vainly for something similar. They had bakery oatmeal cookies, but they were too small and looked too hard. So I bought bakery chocolate chunk cookies instead. Fabulous – you can actually taste the sugar and butter – but I’m still a bit wistful.

I’m also dying for sushi, but I bought a lasagna for lunch instead.

Let’s see if I can get through my eleven-hour shift from hell today without a Coke. I had a salad for lunch yesteray and felt virtuous, but then realised at the close fo the day that I’d had two Cokes somehow as well. I go for days without one, then I have two in one day? Eh. No man can plumb the depths of my food cravings (and by man I mean the all-inclusive species thing, not just the gender). I certainly can’t.
