She stressed on something called 'Emotional Eating' something that all of us go thrugh. Except we think it has to do with eating because you are sad, that's not what it is, eating emotionally should be a happy thing. If you eat more food because you are happy, then great! Why should more happiness be celebrated?
I love eating out. I love eating out by myself or with friends. I love making dinner plans. I cannot explain how or why it makes me happy to walk into a restaurant and order a meal and then quietly nibble on it while I read a book.
For birthday dinners and lunches, I like doing them outside. The problem with eating at home is not only does it put too much pressure on someone who is cooking the meal, they hardly ever get to enjoy the conversation. With eating out, you get everyone at the table eating food they love. Nobody has to forgo their choice of a meal and that's pretty great. (My mum always has to ignore her choice of food to accommodate mine)
I love eating out because I love food that tastes different. I know you're going to say "What different food can vegetarians eat?" truth is, there isn't. But it's nice to go out with family and friends.
I don't usually go to fancy places to eat, I find them too pretentious. I hate dressing up and going to these places, but on the days that I do, I really like them too. You're in your nice clothes and you're ordering pretentious portion of meals. It's a funny feeling, all of us must try. I remember saying this to a friend when she suggested a place "Please don't take me to a place where I have to eat before I go". A lot of these upscale places are like that. But sometimes, it's a good thing to have good things in life.

Apart from it being totally awesome. I wanted to participate in the challenge because I need to see if I can write everyday from 2 months in a row. And this time I'm doing the whole commenting, posting, reading and writing as well! So this 2 AM writer will have very little sleep and mostly lots of coffee!
