Default Eating in bed?

Just because I'm sitting here in bed eating cheese and crackers, contemplating all the crumbs it might leave, but not really caring, and wondering if I'm odd.

So... do you eat in your bed? Regularly? Just on special occasions? Never?

Anywhere else weird? My main eating location is my bedroom desk which is also probably a bit odd. I do it mainly because it allows me the opportunity to multitask while eating when I don't have anyone else around to eat with. We have a dining room table downstairs, but it's covered in roommates' stuff and honestly I probably wouldn't use it regularly even if it was clear. I'm not much of a TV person, but on the occasions that I do turn the TV on for myself, I might munch away on the couch as well.

What's your norm?

Depends on how tired I am, but yes, I do eat in bed. Just not under the covers, usually, no crumbs between sheets.

I just sat in bed and shoveled like 800 calories into my face. Yes I eat in bed. Frequently.

I don't eat in bed, but 90% of the time I eat at my bedroom desk. On the computer. Yup.

Nope, never have, probably never will. For me, it's usually trays in the living room because they can hold a dinner plate and a laptop, and the TV is there, too. I multi-task, too; reading the news on the internet and watching TV, while munching on dinner.

A lot less frequently than I used to. Most of the time I eat in the kitchen, but if I'm having a snack or something usually I'll sit at my desk while I'm on the computer/watching TV. I just don't really like sitting in my bed for anything, other than reading.

Unless I don't feel good. Then yes, bring my meals to my bed.

I eat in bed all the time. Mainly it's because we live in someone's basement and don't really have a designated spot to eat right now until we move. So ya, eating in bed is a fairly regulated thing.

Yes. I do everything in bed, which is awful, and I'm trying to fix that. I just got a comfy chair yesterday that can be my "sit on the computer and do crap" chair, and I made a corner into an "office" for homework and stuff. I'm TRYING to get to the point where bed is for bed...but I don't know if I can give up the watching TV in bed thing

When I lived on my own I didn't have a table to eat at, so I ate wherever...usually at the computer desk. When I had a roommate, we had a table, but we rarely used it unless we had people over or we cooked something together/shared a meal. Now, living with my parents, most dinners are at the table, most lunches are at the living room table (with TV/computer), and everything else is wherever.

I NEVER eat in bed, even if I'm under the weather. We also don't have a TV or computer in our bedroom.

Usually I eat meals at our kitchen table or on the couch.
