spring hibernation?

Taking food out of the mix for the past three days has been very interesting. I haven’t really been any hungrier than I would normally be – I’m always hungry even when I’ve eaten in the past few hours or past few days. Suddenly I have all this time on my hands – time that I’d normally spend preparing and eating food or riding to restaurants, coffee-houses, bars, burrito-joints... is now available for other pursuits. And time spent running and riding is down a little, too, although I’m still putting in several bike miles and a few run miles per day. I have to stay a little bit occupied or all I think about is food – again no big difference from normal. Strange though, I find myself suddenly doing housework and chores that have been on my to-do-list for three years - maybe some part of my mind/body thinks I’m going into hibernation and is preparing a worthy den…

You have been meaning to clean your house for three years? Interesting. 8>).

You can still ride to the burrito-joints and just look in the window at others eating. You know the look to give, right?

You mean the look that says “by sponsoring this child for only $19 a month you’ll be providing nourishing food, clothing, and proper health care for this innocent little pauper”?
