Tip of the day / Chocolate o'clock

In case you ever wondered how to round off the day with a tub of ice cream (for the purposes of this exercise, Ben and Jerrys Cookie Dough) and a good book (for example, The End of Mr Y by Scarlett Thomas) and enjoy both activities simultaneously, I am on hand, or err, foot to provide a demonstration. Observe.

A well positioned foot makes a wonderful bookmark (depending on the thickness of the book and foot size; chunky monkeys, sloths and those with canoes for feet may find a toe alone is adequate), and leaves both hands free to hold the tub and spoon while filling ones mouth and eyes with many spoonfuls of fatty literary goodness.

PS. I have Chocolate o'clock every day at 4pm. What's your daily must have? Lets synchronise.

Please note: the author accepts no responsibility for anyone becoming a h'absolute-fatty-bum-bum-walrus face heffa lump whinging "oh no i ate loads and now i'm huge..BURP" as a result of this blog post. Other things you can blame include nature / a slow metabolism / not liking the colour of salad, but not me. Sorry.

Glad to see it wasn't The Guardian you were reading, anyway.

I don't like ice cream strangely.

But I open my bottle of Rioja at 6pm on the dot. And I don't think that's too bad re calories. Well, I don't care if it is really. I need it. I struggle to last till 6 but I generally stay strong and hold out. So wine in one hand and usually some cooking implement in the other with which to whack the children if they come in range.

I like the way you take responsibility for yourself and your not-quite-yet fat ass!

Nice socks :)

My daily must have is a cup of Lapsang Souchong tea in the afternoon. My not so daily routine is a cigar at the end of a long day.

I have tried reading AND eating before - but it's always ended up a bit of a mess. So bravo to your nifty `footmark' solution there Jo. Although what do you do when you have to turn the page?

PS : At 4pm I am likely to be found snaffling at a secret stash of M&S Orange Bites in my desk drawer. Secret, because my bosses are hunger-crazed piranhas when it comes to snackages being brought in to the office. And snaffling, cos I dont want them to discover my M&S tub of goodness.

reluctant - Haha, I like that. Do you favour a wooden spoon or a spatula as your weapon of choice?

afc - I'm glad you put 'with cup of coffee' at the end young man. good work.

clarissa - yeah well, someone has to I'm aware I'll be fat one day, I'm just making the most of it while I'm not. ;)

perpetual - They were clean ones, you're lucky. Lapsang tea? Is that herbal? I like peppermint tea. No routine on that one though.

londonlass - my toes are quite dextrous, so with a bare foot it's possible to page turn as well. Good call on the orange bites. I have my 4pm fix in a secret drawer next to my desk.

Mmmmmm there's a lot of ice cream going around the blogsphere at the moment. Makes me hungry.

I have to start my day with Tea. Have to. Or I don't function. Eek. I need to reduce my caffeine intake pronto.
