    Doing It Now

    Just had ravioli's. I'm always very careful, and I have been doing it for years. I never have ruined a laptop because of spilling something on it. Then again, I'm not so much as a klutz as I used to be. I have outgrown it a lot.

    Method Of Distraction

    I've had eating problems since I was 16 and I always found eating in front of a computer very much a distraction to the idea of having a plate of food in front of me. I tend to pick at it while I'm doing what ever; messaging, streaming video, writing. It's kinda like you forget...
