Got rituals?

Recently, one office friend mentioned how it's been a ritual with him to get up at 5.30 in the morning every year to catch the Oscars on television. Since we're in India, I guess broadcast timings for the Academy Awards are really odd.

It got me wondering if I've got any rituals - things I do on a fairly regular basis. Of course, you could say you brush your teeth and shower everyday and that's a ritual, but you know I really am talking about more sophisticated stuff.

The only ongoing ritual in my life seems to be making two-minute noodle for breakfast on Saturday. It's a real treat after a punishing 50-hour work week. But sadly I might have to give it up in lieu of a healthier diet.

Other than that, I don't really do anything that qualifies as a ritual. You've got one? Or two?

@spidergal,
Interesting link on the noodles here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maggi_noodles

@ossobuco,
Thanks, Osso. I wasn't aware Maggi was popular in other countries as well. I thought it was just an India thing.

I have a couple but I better not mention them. I'm too pretty to go to prison.

Sunday morning:
No one else is up yet.
Get the Boston Globe off the porch.
Measure out some milk.
Grind up some coffee beans.
Whip up a caffe mocha.
Toss a bao into the toaster oven.
Munch, sip, read.
Do the Sunday crossword.

Best time of the week.

1) Start coffee going.
2) Take something for breakfast out of the freezer - one of my burritos, or a vegetable ricotta tarte or a tortilla to use as a wrap for scrambled eggs.
3) Brush teeth, etc.
4) Pour coffee, check google news, check other news sites, check what's going on at a2k
5) Warm the breakfast (microwave or cooking eggs), sit and enjoy it.
6) Pour more coffee, check emails, weather.

My approach to Oreo eating is ritualized (aka compulsive). I don't like the new easy-open package. I like the three-across tray. I will eat Oreos only in threes--taking one from eat row so that I work my way to the back of the package.

I tried the new easy-open package. It felt chaotic and wrong.

Never again.

@blueveinedthrobber,
Thanks for the sympathy. Life as I knew it was over a long time ago. Now I get just a little obsessed over cookies. Could be worse.
