Sometimes Oct 15

But only very rarely. I did it one day last week because I felt peckish when I wasn't quite finished working for the day.

I prefer a change of scenery and would hate to spill coffee over my equipment.

I don't eat at my desk, but I do drink one or two espresso coffees. My cup of coffee has a special place on a bookshelf near me but away from my desk to avoid disasters like this:

Of course Oct 15

And cleverly, the computer comes with a perfect holder for a coffee mug... Hardly ever use it for CDs, anyway...

Just breakfast/dinner. Oct 15

Just breakfast and/or dinner. Lunch is the principal meal here in Perú.

Never Oct 15

Ever.
My desk is not my kitchen/dining room, and snacks or sandwiches are not food.

How sad would I feel if I had to. As a French man, meals are central to, err... life, and as a freelancer, I'd be damned if I couldn't fit the world-renowned one-hourish break sitting, talking and eating in my schedule.

It depends on what you mean by "eat" Oct 15

A meal, never, but sometimes a sip of coffee, a bite on a cracker, is just what was missing to light being made and the "right" word popping out. 😊

My desk is too small and the only place I can sit is at my computer. I do drink coffee - it has a special place away from my keyboard. I eat at my kitchen island and listen to the radio. Sometimes there is an interesting discussion on.

Not meals, but snacks and coffee, regularly.
