It's almost midnight. I skipped dinner in favor of a chocolate chip cookie and a cup of tea because I had a late lunch. Now I'm hungry, and I just read the post on the Japanese pancake mix, so now what I want is pancakes. I should go to bed, or make some toast, but no, now I have to go make pancakes.
And when they are done I will have a messy kitchen which I will feel bad about leaving, so I will eat said pancakes, clean up and not be in bed before 1:00 am.
Does anyone else feel compelled to do this sort of thing?
