Went to bed early last night and got caught up on sleep in spite of waking up at 0100 ravenously hungry. It was still pretty hot in the apartment, so I had a peanut butter sandwich and went back to bed. Woke up with a blood sugar reading in the 200+ range. As for the sconage, I had gotten into the habit of noshing on a krispy bar with my large iced coffee in the afternoon. Unfortunately, the Dunn Brothers in 6 Quebec has taken to mixing M&M's into their rice krispies of late, so yesterday I went with what looked like a plain cinnamon scone. Apparently it was loaded with sugar, since the dinnertime glucose reading was also in the red. Damn.

Today I have an interview with Accountemps over lunch. I thought about wearing a tie, but since I'm nobody's idea of a GQ model (my shirt & pants don't even match today) it would have been a pointless gesture. Maybe even stupid, considering that the footgear of the day, as usual, is black Wal-Mart sneakers with Velcro strap closures. ::shrug:: It's not like they're hiring me for my fashion sense.

I just watched an episode of Ghost in the Shell. It had a beer bottle just like your icon. Is that where you got it from?

No, it was a little more work than that. ~_^ phoenixalpha took a pic of the actual Suntory Dark Black Boss Coffee can and edited the pic to add the Road Drug slogan from Jesse Miller's "Catalyst Run".

Just FYI, having baked them, a standard scone recipe has sugar in it; I'm sure any commercially baked scone has all kinds of sucrose and corn-fructose and other lovely things.

I *think*, and I could be wrong, the only coffee house food really safe, as far as sugar content goes, is a savory bagel (i.e. plain or poppy seed or onion).

Our coffeeshop (by which I mean the coffeeshop at work) also sells bags of nuts, which are a fabulous food to eat when having the munchies, because they are filling, proteiny, nutrient-rich, and have the good cholesterol in them. Cashews might have natural sugars, but I think most other nuts don't.

Unfortunately nuts taste like crap when eaten with coffee - or maybe that's just the sweeteners that do those horrible things to the taste of perfectly good peanut butter.

OTOH, if I had a more interesting job (or one with a less fascist attitude about Internet use) I probably wouldn't need that large iced coffee long about 3 PM.
