The Aftermath of Too Much Reading Leads to Food

“Eating and reading are two pleasures that combine admirably.”

― C.S. Lewis


Here we are again with the ever-supportive and ever-helpful Top Ten Tuesday prompting unproductive bloggers like myself to come up with something during a slump. I feel extremely grateful that this meme exists. Also, if you’d like to join in on the fun, just visit That Artsy Reader Girl blog to check out the prompts.

The truth is, I don’t eat while I read. It was a hard lesson learned once and I’m not keen on that scene being repeated. The ironic thing is I actually forget to eat while I am immersed in a story and it is a habit I have yet to break.

So instead of the actual prompt (Favorite Things to Eat/Drink While Reading) this list will be: Top Things to Eat OR Drink AFTER Reading. Oh, who am I kidding. Not just for after reading but also after everything – be it binge watching, blogging or playing.

CHOCOLATES – I bet that this is on everyone’s list but if not just consider me biased. Sugar rush and happiness!

…but evidently not for him

PIZZA – I don’t always eat pizza but I would always crave them.

ICED COFFEE – Considering it is pretty hot these days I switched to iced but it is always coffee. I also tried tea but we’re still on a period of getting to know each other.

RAMEN/CUP NOODLES – One would certainly crave it after seeing them on screen while watching korean/chinese drama or even anime. Also after a book marathon when you want a meal but you’re too lazy to prepare an elaborate one.

SWEET CORN – I sort of crave this now out of the blue. And I just finished reading too.

CHIPS – Or anything salty and crunchy. It’s a mood – just ask Light.

FRUITS – Okay… I just added that so I’m not an unhealthy little one portrayed above so obviously, but it would be true if there are any fresh mangoes and watermelon and apples and oranges lying around – I’d be all over them.

All in all I compiled this just to show what’s on top of the list, but to be honest I would eat just about anything after a book or tv series marathon.

To quote a famous someone:

“Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love eat.”

No need to be picky if you’re starving, right?

Happy Tuesday everyone!

  1. You know what I crave lately? Pizza. Never end up eating any, but I always say “man, I could go for an 18″ pizza right about now”.

    Now that I think about it, there is not nearly enough Pizza sakuga in anime.

    1. Same for me too! I think about it a lot but not that desperate to have a bite. Cravings are weird sometimes.

      Now that you mentioned it I will keep a lookout for that type of thing now in anime and not just for pizza!
