I was reading the thread concerning Doctor Q's sex and noticed a discussion start about ubergeek(i know the key combo in word but this ain't word) and Jolt Cola. I thought it'd be cool to have a thread about people's computing drink/food of choice. While using my computer I usually drink Diet Sunkist and, if I'm hungry, eat chef boyardee. What about y'all?

I know this is a bad habit, but I've been eating dinner in front of my iBook lately. Last night I had a nice big bowl of pasta w/ sauce and cheese and pepsi (I know this because the dishes are still right next to me.) :p

Around the computer I skip anything with sugar (usually stick with iced tea), even though dehydrated water is the best choice around electronics.

DRINKS:
If I am working: inordinate amounts of coffee (I have a really expensive espresso/regular combo machine)

If I am playing: juice/coffee/beer (depending on mood and time of day)

...there is, of course, some overlap between the two<ahem>

FOOD:
Working: usually nothing but snacks(milano cookies,potato chips), occasionally a meal when I am stuck/flustered/need a break.

Playing: same, although I do eat some meals in front of more often...

On the drink front, for me it's water, soy milk, or espresso. Regarding food, I never eat meals with the computer; I eat cookies mostly, with the occasional triscuit and cheese.

Mm mm. Now I'm hungry.

clear birch beer
Wow, it's so hard to find clear birch beer! I live in Indiana, and all I can find is red birch beer, which isn't nearly as good as the clear stuff.

Water, water, and sometimes mint water by metromint.

Although lately i've been drinking flavored sparkling water by Safeway Select, but I finished the last bottle yesterday.
