Poorly Fed

Although there has been no rain falling today, the ground has remained damp. There must have been mist out there, even though I haven't felt it. It might have been about only when I've been indoors. But the pavement is black and shiny tonight, and there are drops on the leaves of the bushes and the grass wets my shoes when I walk on it. There was little sunshine, the clouds remaining dense and gray most of the day. It's very restful when it's like that, which might have contributed to my falling asleep about nine o'clock this morning and not waking up until half past twelve. I had slept from about one o'clock in the morning until half past four, too, so I've had about six hours sleep altogether, and it's likely that I'll crash not long after midnight again.

Actually, I don't feel as though I've been fully awake all day. Maybe that's another result of the gray sky. I haven't fixed a proper meal in several days, either, so maybe I'm becoming malnourished. If my reluctance to cook continues much longer I'll run out of canned goods and frozen burritos. Then I'll be forced to resort to pasta, the next easiest thing to fix. Maybe I should invest in some TV dinners when I go shopping Sunday. I wouldn't know which ones to buy, though, as I don't recall having eaten one in decades. They used to be pretty vile, but maybe there's been an improvement in their quality. I'd only be able to afford those in the lower price range, though, and I suspect they'd be about the same as the Swanson's I occasionally got stuck with when I was a kid.

I think I'd kill for a good pizza right now. Too bad I'm not willing to spend for one.
