Deadline diet depression

iCreate deadline week is usually a tough one and, being the well prepared editor that I am, I headed to Marks & Spencer at the weekend to stock up on ready meals for the late nights infront of my Mac.  
I’m heartened this evening, as I lovingly check pages, that my food doesn’t offer the standard stamp that confirms you actually have no life. Last night I enjoyed a cottage pie – it tasted fine and had a lovely set of compartmentalised veg with it but it bore the awful, soul destroying slogan: 
“Meal For One”
I could figure that out from the size of the container, do you have to label it so embarrassingly?! Plus, which “one” are we talking about? I’m sure there are a few chunky sorts, the kind who waddle back and forth from sofa to McDonalds, who wouldn’t even consider this an appetiser… 
Tonight’s steak and ale casserole has no such branding and makes me feel far better about working into the wee hours. 

I’ve also just noticed that the latest episode of the iCreate podcast has pushed its way into the Top 25 Tech Podcast chart on the UK iTunes Store. Another short “Easter Special” episode from Jimmy and I before he jets to Dubai and I pop home to visit the family and I think we’ll be knocking on the door of the top 5 again. 
Right, back to the Mac and some reheated meat and dumplings…
