1. When you go out with friends, what is your favorite drink (alcoholic or non).

2. How often do you go out socially?

3. Have you changed your eating habit in the last year or two?

No, going out socially does not always mean dinner.

<p>Oh my bad, dinner, events and lunch. 2-3 times a week on average. Very nice. You are a busy bee with work (I wouldn't consider lunch with co-workers a social thing but maybe because I can easily eat with them every day in or out of work), kids sports, cooking nice dinners. Sounds like a full plate :)</p>

Ummm, would you actually READ what people write? She specifically said that she would not consider lunch with coworkers a social thing.

Oops..my bad. Didnt know you were such a social butterfly :)

If you were my friend on fb I could share my pics from this weekend with friends. Oh well. You can ask Jam as she liked them :) No social outing isn't complete without pics up on facebook. Lol

<<Nope. We go out to bars, restaurants, movies, professional sports events, playing pool, volunteering at church, dinner parties at someone's home, game night at someone's home, dessert parties at someone's home, playing cards, BBQ's, pig roasts, birthdays, holidays (with friends and not family), parties (jewelry, houseware, passion parties), shopping, vacations. Most of the things we go to HAS food though as that is how our circle of friends are. Always food and drinks involved in some kind of way lol. <<

...and yet you assumed (incorrectly of course) that my 2-3 going out social equals going out to dinner.  Why on earth would you make up something like that when clearly the experienes are wide open for possibilities?  Why not ask or better yet, why not simply read what is written already?

<<You do realize, don't you, that a social meal can be breakfast or lunch too.  In fact, PKA specifically mentioned lunches as a potential social meal.  2-3 meals out of 21 still leaves a lot of room for cooking.>>

Well you know me, I love to cook and even if I do go out to dinner with friends, I often cook dinner before leaving for the rest of the family.  But going out for dinner doesn't equal all of my/our social outings.  I can't belive that assumption, so limited.

Well we have had this discussion before and you always claimed to be way more social than I.  Sorry, I have no interest in being friends on fb nor am I with Jam.  And yes, to me a social outing is complete without facebook photos.  :)

No, I never claimed I was more social than you. I guess my social outings are just more picture worthy lol.

Okay, whatever and picture worthy and facebook are not the same thing.

Huh? Facebook is for sharing photos with friends and family.

I count book groups with friends as a social event, but not book/reading groups that are made up of colleagues and where we read new books in the field. It is fun to read them and discuss them in someone's home rather than around a seminar table at work.
