How do you keep from eating while bored?

OK. So that’s not really the question for today. But I still haven’t dug the journal out of whatever moving black hole it fell into and I apparently didn’t answer a question on April 14 last year.

So as I sit here at work, bored during the usual lull between moving copy and reading proofs, I am trying desperately not to have a piece of the birthday cake my co-worker put out. Normally, I would break out the tablet and start reading a book. But I finished all the books I was reading and opted not to bring the tablet with me. Epic fail.

So that brings me to the interactive portion of today’s post: Do you have problems with eating while bored? What do you do to help (aside from write about on a blog or obsessively compile book lists for you check out at home later)?

Discuss.
