@mannequinhands Right now, the main thing motivating me to bring lunch to work is the fact that what I bring totally beats out (almost) anything anyone can buy around here. So when people walk by and remark on how good my food looks while holding their Subway bags, it motivates me not to go (more) broke buying lunch.
However, if left unsupervised, I would easily eat a bowl o chickpeas or something much less sociall acceptable (jar o kimchi?). If you worked here I would be like "Bowl of chickpeas? Nice!"

@area@twitter ...and a voyeuristic Chicagoan nearby didn't even admonish her use of ketchup, even though he wanted to.

Once upon a time, a woman with an office job started running and learned that she liked it very much. Then she ran a 5k, and even a half marathon, and no one asked her if she had lost weight, or told her that she didn't need to run because she didn't need to lose weight. The End.

@cherrispryte Bell's also doesn't distribute in MD. They distribute in DC, but it is hard to convince my boyfriend to bring me a 6-pack of Oberon on the train and then his bike to bring home for me. BELLLLLLLL'S
