In my title I use the world lonely like I want you to feel sorry for me. Really, I prefer it.
I was watching an Iron Chef America: Battle Sugar with Cat Cora and Paula Deen pitted against Tyler Florence and that beefy Marine dude who got kicked off his show Dinner Impossible for lying about his background. Anyway, Tina Fey was one of the judges and she remarked that she consumes most of her food in secret. I TOTALLY get it.
I'm convinced anyone around me is obsessed with what, how, and in what rhythm and consistency I am consuming food. Naturally, this makes eating in front of others more than a little bit tortuous.
The truth is, I AM that person I fear so much: I do care and take complete stock in what others are eating. I don't judge, because anything weird you do with food, I can do (and have done) better.
So having this blog is completely indulgent and petrifying at the same time. As it should be.
