A benefit of living alone|
I can take whatever food I want to work with me, and I don't have to worry about someone complaining that they were going to eat that food at some point (he says, finishing up the oatmeal cookies).

I had _plans_ for those cookies! Well, ok, so the plans were to do nothing with them. Still. *pout*

The down side is that it's less likely to find unexpected, yummy-looking leftovers...

Unexpected, yummy-looking leftovers are usually for looking only. Except for dessert, which is usually for sharing.

yeah, i wouldn't know anyone who went and ate all the leftover Indian food that I was planning on bringing for lunch since I never have time anymore to make lunch.

I was just talking about this very thing last night. For me, the benefit was that I could put something down anywhere in the house, even in the middle of the living room floor, and when I came back later to find it, it would still be just where I left it. That was cool. Oh yeah, the other thing that was cool is that I never got surprised by finding messes in the house. Every mess that I came across I could clearly recall being the cause of said mess. That worked nicely in with my "cleaning up my own messes" responsibility instinct, when meant that things stayed neat. Of course, it also meant a lot of lonely nights alone cleaning the house. That wasn't so good.
